The government will provide VGF food assistance to fishermen during the ban.
Harvesting of hilsa will be prohibited across the country for 22 days during the main breeding season of the fish, from October 7 to 28.
Throughout the country, Hilsa transportation, buying and selling, storage, and exchange will be prohibited for the next 22 days. SM Rezaul Karim, minister of fisheries and livestock, announced a mother hilsa conservation campaign during a meeting of the National Task Force Committee on Hilsa Resource Development.
The meeting on Thursday was held at the Directorate of Fisheries in the capital’s Matsya Bhavan to set the timing of hilsa harvesting during the main breeding season and to implement a mother hilsa conservation campaign.
According to the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock, the government will provide VGF food assistance to fishermen affected by the ban during the ban.
SM Rezaul Karim stated during the meeting, “Anyone who comes to fish during the prohibited hours is not a fisherman. Many wealthy and powerful people stand behind them. These dishonest people will not be exempted from protecting hilsa resources, as in the past.”

A statement posted to the Tofino Resort and Marina’s website acknowledged something inappropriate had taken place.
The Tofino Resort and Marina, which is partly owned by former Vancouver Canucks Willie Mitchell and Dan Hamhuis, has canceled a high-profile fishing tournament and concert series.
The high-profile Race to the Blue, a blue water tuna fishing derby, was scheduled to take place from September 10 to 17. It started over the weekend but has since been canceled.
On Wednesday morning, a statement on the resort’s website acknowledged that something inappropriate had occurred.
“We were deeply disturbed to learn of highly inappropriate behavior associated with one of our annual events.” “Our first concern is for our employees, and we are responding to the needs of those affected,” according to the statement. “We have appointed an interim manager and are continuing to take precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of our team.”
According to the resort’s Instagram account, a planned concert series at 1909 Kitchen and Bar, the resort’s upscale restaurant, has also been canceled. Bands had been booked all week, but on Monday, they were informed that the series had been canceled.

According to world casting champion Hywel Morgan, who recently returned from giving demonstrations at the GWCT Welsh Game Fair at Vaynol Hall in Gwynedd, fishing in Wales needs to be better promoted.
The outspoken fishing guide, who lives on the outskirts of Aberystwyth, believes the Welsh fishing industry needs “boots on the ground” exhibiting at public events around the world to promote the world-class fishing available in his homeland.
“I’ve spent the last 35 years working at international trade shows.” During that time, I’ve noticed that both Ireland and Scotland have dedicated organizations whose sole purpose is to promote tourism and country pursuits available in their respective regions. Why can’t Wales have something similar?
“We appear to be very secretive about what we have to offer here. We have a world-class river, coastal, and mountain lake fishing for a variety of species including sea trout, salmon, brown trout, and grayling. “

THE INDEPENDENT | Kampala, Uganda The Standards, Utilities, and Wildlife Court in Kampala fined 40 Kenyan fishermen sh700,000 (Ksh22,113) each for fishing without a valid license on the Ugandan side of Lake Victoria.
The fishermen who had been detained at Luzira Prison for a month were arrested and charged with illegal fishing and fishing without valid licenses. They were convicted last month based on their own guilty plea.
The court heard that on July 29, 2022, between 2 and 6 p.m., 40 Kenyans were discovered fishing without a valid license issued by the Chief Fisheries Officer for Purposes of Sale on the waters of Lake Victoria in Namayingo District.
The Court also heard that they were fishing on the same day, using mosquito nets to carry out their illegal fishing activities.
However, shortly after they pleaded guilty, prosecutors led by Allan Mucunguzi asked the court for a deterrent and custodial sentence, claiming that many Kenyans had entered Ugandan waters on Lake Victoria and continued to use mosquito nets, which are not authorized for fishing, to carry out their illegal activities.
While appearing before Chief Magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu on Thursday, the Kenyans who did not have lawyers were each asked to say something about the punishment.
However, the majority of them told the court that they are struggling to make ends meet and have families and children to support. They expressed regret and promised not to do it again.
DNR to use electrofishing boats to monitor natural, stocked walleye populations across Michigan

Personnel from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources will be conducting walleye recruitment surveys until early October.
The surveys assist fisheries managers in determining how many walleye were naturally produced or survived stocking in 2022. They will use electrofishing boats to survey the shallow areas near the shorelines of lakes at night in order to catch walleye.

On larger lakes, two or more electrofishing crews will use separate boats and may operate concurrently to cover more ground. The crews will work on lakes that have and have not been stocked with walleye.
“Conducting surveys on both stocked and unstocked lakes can influence future walleye research and stocking efforts, as well as provide valuable insight into the status of the system’s younger walleye,” said Emily Martin, DNR Fisheries Division biologist.

It’s almost time for the 23rd annual Rainy River Walleye tournament, a fishing competition enjoyed by both anglers and spectators.
A boat parade, fisherman’s dinner, beer gardens, a mix & mingle, an open mic and karaoke, kids mini-tournaments, silent auctions, and raffles, to name a few, will take place between Thursday, September 15, and Saturday, September 17. But, of course, the main focus will be on the waters, where over 100 anglers will compete in a friendly competition to catch the biggest fish.
Each boat has a team of two anglers. Anglers who catch the most total weight will be recognized on stage in front of a cheering crowd and awarded a cash prize of $15,000.
Several anglers who have competed in the Walleye tournament for several years told the Fort Frances Times about their favorite fishing memories. To respect the tournament’s unwritten rules, none of the anglers revealed their favorite tackle or secret fishing spots.

The employer of two men who drowned while on a fishing trip on Fraser Lake has launched a fundraising campaign for their families.
Brenden Elias of Precision Home and Yard, a home renovation and landscaping company in Prince George, established a GoFundMe page for the families of Alberto Calago and Gibrone Cano.
On Monday, Sept. 5, Calago and Cano went fishing at Fraser Lake with three friends, and later that afternoon they were canoeing on the lake when the winds picked up and their canoe capsized.
Friends and search and rescue teams were unable to locate the men, so an RCMP helicopter was dispatched to assist in their search.
Businesses Stop Selling Lobster Because of Whale Concerns

Because of concerns that fishing methods may endanger endangered whales, some American businesses have stopped selling lobster. Several food companies announced that they would no longer sell lobster to the general public.
The removals came after a conservation group announced that the American and Canadian lobster fisheries had been added to its “red list.” It is a list of fish to avoid when purchasing seafood. Seafood Watch is the organization that compiles the list. Its headquarters are at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in northern California.
According to a new report from Seafood Watch, the fishing industry poses a threat to North Atlantic right whales. Whales can be injured or killed if they become entangled in the equipment that connects lobster traps to the ocean floor.
According to the organization’s report, “current management measures do not go far enough” to prevent such risks and to help save the whale species.
Seafood Watch’s guidelines are used by thousands of businesses to make purchasing decisions. Many people have already pledged to avoid any products on the red list. A spokesperson for Blue Apron, a New York-based food delivery service, stated that the company had already discontinued offering a seasonal lobster box before the report was published. According to the company, all of the seafood it currently uses adheres to Seafood Watch’s guidelines.
Surprise! Pink salmon runs Rocky River: NE Ohio fishing report

CLEVELAND, OHIO (AP) — Lake Erie steelhead trout are beginning to migrate from the vast waters of Lake Erie to Northeast Ohio’s spawning rivers and streams as the lake begins to cool. That could indicate early runs of the tenacious Ohio trout that have contributed to the development of a world-class steelhead trout fishery.
Those large trout are being raised at the Castalia State Fish Hatchery in Castalia and released after a year to fatten up on abundant Lake Erie forage before their first spawning efforts in the chilly river waters.
The capture of a chunky pink salmon, also known as a humpback salmon due to the dramatic humps on their backs, was a big surprise this week while Cleveland Metroparks crews were sampling the early steelhead arrivals under the direction of Mike Durkalec.
Anthon Hyvarinen of Madison holds the Ohio pink salmon record, with a 22-inch pink weighing 4.3 pounds caught while trolling for walleyes and trout in Lake Erie on August 17, 2021. Hyvarinen was fishing with a purple spoon in 74 feet of Lake Erie water eight miles off the coast of Geneva.
During the autumn spawning runs up around the Great Lakes tributary streams, and the hump is especially noticeable in male salmon. Pink salmon are famous for their massive runs, which occur when thousands of fish migrate up Alaskan rivers.
Pink salmon have never been found in great numbers in the Great Lakes. Pinks were introduced to Lake Superior in the 1950s and gradually spread to the other Great Lakes. They were discovered in Lake Erie for the first time in 1979.

We’ve “gone fishin'” in this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends. Dennis Biswell, a MOTHER EARTH NEWS staff member and lifelong outdoors enthusiast, joins us with rods and lures in hand to discuss fishing techniques.
We’ll talk about why people start fishing, fishing equipment for beginners, freshwater fishing tips and techniques, outdoor etiquette, and how to be prepared when you go out on the water.
Dennis Biswell is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities. He has been fishing for almost 60 years. Dennis primarily targets panfish (bluegill, sunfish, and crappie), largemouth bass, catfish (channel and flathead catfish), and rough fish (carp and drum).
Dennis prefers to fish on private property in ponds, small watershed lakes, streams, and creeks, and he employs artificial lures, live worms, grubs, grasshoppers, minnows, and other small bait fish, as well as other “natural” baits for carp and channel catfish, such as liver and dough baits.
He’s published articles in MOTHER EARTH NEWS and Grit magazine about tanning hides, hunting, deer processing, and other outdoor skills. He’s also given talks at MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS about deer processing, tanning hides, creating patterns, sewing home-tanned leather, and outdoor survival skills.
