The crew of a fishing schooner has been rescued after their vessel sank off the coast of Fair Isle after colliding with another craft.

Around lunchtime, coastguards received word that the Guiding Star was in distress around 45 miles (72 kilometers) from the island.

Following the collision, the eight crew members abandoned the ship.

Three individuals rescued from the water were flown to Shetland, according to police. The remaining five were transferred to the sister’s vessel for transport to Peterhead.

The HM Coastguard shared a video on YouTube showing some of the men being winched to safety.

“The crew did the right thing by carrying an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) onboard, which helped lead the rescue,” said Max Rimington, Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Commander with HM Coastguard.

“We are grateful that everyone is safe and sound, and we are grateful to the crew and the adjacent vessels that assisted us in achieving a successful outcome.”

A fishing boat has sunk off the coast of Shetland after colliding with another vessel.

After colliding with another vessel, eight crew members were forced to abandon ship and board a life raft, necessitating a Coastguard rescue effort.

The rescue mission was coordinated by HM Coastguard and the Coastguard helicopter base in Sumburgh.

Sumburgh and Lerwick rescue services were ready to assist, with adjacent vessels responding to the pleas for assistance.

All the crew was saved, two were flown to the hospital by helicopter, while the others were rescued by adjacent boats.

“The crew did the right thing by having an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon on board, which helped lead the response,” said Max Rimington, joint rescue coordination center (JRCC) commander with HM Coastguard.

Norway to limit access for Russian fishing vessels

Norway announced on Thursday that it would restrict Russian fishing vessels’ access to its ports, the Nordic country’s latest security tightening following the discovery of massive leaks on the Nord Stream gas pipelines last week.

Russian trawlers will only be allowed to enter three ports from now on, and they will be subjected to security checks, Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt announced during a press conference. “Russia’s reprehensible annexations in Ukraine, attacks on gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, and increased drone activity have prompted the administration to tighten security even further,” she said.

The government, however, stopped short of implementing a complete ban, stating that collaborative management of fish stocks is still vital.

‘A Fight for Justice and Survival’ in India: Catholic Church Spearheads Protests for Fishing Families Harmed by Indian Port Project

INDIA, THIRUVANANTHAPURAM — The Church is leading an unprecedented protest against a contentious port project run by one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, which is wreaking havoc on the lives of thousands of fishermen in the Archdiocese of Trivandrum in Kerala’s southern state.

More than 25,000 fishermen and others marched on Sept. 18 to the site of 62 days of constant protest opposite the entrance of the port construction site at Vizhinjam near Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala’s capital city, led by bishops, priests, nuns, and delegates from other dioceses.

Vizhinjam, a tranquil and historic fishing harbor on the Arabian Sea coast, is being transformed into a large commercial port at a cost of more than $1 billion. The port is currently leased to the strong Adani Corp., led by Gautam Adani, who, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index, replaced Jeff Bezos as the world’s second-richest man last month.

“Since the work began, more than 50 people have perished in fishing accidents caused by sea disturbance.” “We will continue to demonstrate until our rightful demands are granted,” Father Eugene Pereira, archdiocese vicar general, and organizer of the fisher people’s demonstration told the Register on Sept. 27.

An Ocean Runs Through It; Vineyarders Flock to Fly Fishing

Fly fishing does not normally place a fisherman at the top of the derby’s all-tackle leaderboard, but it is a category all its own in terms of aesthetics and bragging rights.

When you’re out on the lake, the pole, line, fly, and fish all blend into a single salty assemblage. At least, that’s how it appears when done effectively, but it’s not simple.

According to David Nash, an Edgartown fly fisherman, and derby committee member, casting and controlling a fly lure the weight of a feather out on 40 feet of line is possibly the most energetic and hard way to fish.

“Your body has to become one with the rod,” he recently explained while assisting at the weigh station. “It’s all about being connected to the line.”

Kib Bramhall, an Island artist who has been fly fishing for almost 40 years on the island, agreed.

“A fly fisherman’s personality manifests in a drive to perfect a very tough procedure,” he explained.

Mr. Bramhall had been fishing conventionally since he was seven years old in 1940, but by the 1970s, he was looking for a bigger challenge and switched to fly fishing.

CALABASH, North Carolina (WWAY) — There are 130,000 children in the United States who have lost limbs, and some of them are attending a fishing camp this weekend in Brunswick County.

The NubAbility Athletics Foundation announces its second deep sea fishing camp for youngsters with limb loss this Saturday and Sunday.

The event is open to youngsters ages 4 to 17, and it will take place on a private charter that departs from the Calabash Fishing Fleet pier at 8:30 a.m. daily.

“When you teach a one-handed youngster how to tie a bait to a line, you’re also teaching them how to tie a shoe,” NubAbility executive director Sam Kuhnert explained. “This camp provides a unique chance for children with limb differences to learn from coaches who look like them, and we are happy to see it develop in its second year.”

Those who want to go fishing in Olympic National Park face indefinite closures. On Wednesday, the National Park Service declared an emergency closure of recreational fishing in most rivers and streams to protect various fish populations.

The decision was made as the river flows reached or approached historic lows due to a lack of rain. According to the National Weather Service in Seattle, temperatures in Western Washington have been above average throughout September and into early October.

This weekend, highs in the Olympia area could exceed 80 degrees. Meanwhile, the NWS predicts largely sunny days with highs in the 60s through Sunday in Port Angeles. Even if the mornings are misty and gloomy, there is no rain in the forecast. While the weather may be pleasant for humans, low water levels in streams and rivers pose difficulties for fish.

According to the National Park Service, the current conditions may hinder upstream spawning migrations. They may also drive salmonids to congregate in increasingly narrow pools, making them more vulnerable.

The shutdown will last until further notice. According to the National Park Service, they should specifically assist safeguard Pacific salmon, steelhead trout, and federally threatened bull trout in Olympic National Park.

LWFC Adopts Notice Of Intent To Modify Spotted Seatrout Size And Bag Limits

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) to increase the minimum size restriction of spotted seatrout to 13.5 inches total length, up from 12 inches, and to reduce the current 25 fish daily bag limit to 15 fish daily bag limit. This rule has been modified to create a single statewide size and bag limit, replacing the distinct limits in coastal western Louisiana.

LDWF staff presented data indicating that spotted seatrout was still overfished1 and being overfished2 at the October 2022 LWFC meeting. Management choices, as well as recent survey results on public opinion on those options, were given to the LWFC.

LDWF has sponsored eight public forums across the state in the previous 2.5 years, distributed various surveys to the public, and collected hundreds of public comments on this topic by email.

“I greatly appreciate our anglers’ time and effort in providing vital information during our meetings and surveys,” stated LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “While the process was extensive, it gave our anglers adequate time to voice their thoughts on alternative management choices and allowed the Commission to acquire the required biological evidence to make the tough, but important decision about one of our most popular recreational species.”

Before December 30, 2022, interested parties may send comments on the proposed rule to Jason Adriance, Fisheries Division, Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, P.O. Box 98000, Baton Rouge, LA 70898-9000, or via email to The full notice of intent is available here.
