After two spills of dead fish fouled Eastern Shore beaches in July, the Virginia Marine Resources Commission is considering new limits on the controversial menhaden fishery.

Over the July 4 weekend, the Reedville-based Omega Protein fleet spilled 4,895 menhaden on Silver Beach, and an estimated 10,000 menhaden and 26 red drums on July 25, forcing the closure of Kiptopeke State Park beach for a time when some of them washed ashore.

The beaches were cleaned by Omega and its contractor.

Approximately 100 people fishing on a frozen lake in Minnesota were rescued after a large chunk of ice broke off and left them stranded.

According to a news release from the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, emergency dispatchers received a 911 call shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday from people fishing on Upper Red Lake in northern Beltrami County. According to the callers, a large chunk of ice broke free from the main shoreline, stranding approximately 100 people.

According to the sheriff’s office, when first responders arrived, they estimated the fishermen had drifted up to 30 yards into open water due to the breakage.

The Israel Defense Forces and a media watchdog organization are responding to a New York Times article that blames Israel for “devastating” Gaza’s fishing industry.

The IDF said on Twitter that “important details are missing” in the Times article. The IDF stated that they sent a statement to the Times, but the statement was “unfortunately” omitted from the article.

Israel stated in the statement that the Times omitted that “terrorist organizations use the fishermen population to smuggle weapons and equipment.” It also stated that the IDF “allows fishermen to earn a living from fishing in the permitted areas near the Gaza Strip without restriction, and does not prosecute those who do not violate the maritime security restrictions.”

According to the IDF, its soldiers have even assisted in the rescue of Gaza fishermen in distress, “saving their lives.”

The wind is a free and sustainable energy source that provides a huge opportunity for maritime activities to transition away from fossil fuels. The Skravik project, based in Brittany’s Finistère, is resurrecting wind propulsion for artisanal fishing.

The project was able to fund its first prototype catamaran thanks to EU funding. The project’s ultimate goal is to reduce the environmental footprint of coastal fisheries by reintroducing sailing as a sustainable food source.

The Skravik project began in 2017 with scientific expeditions before evolving into an entrepreneurial venture in 2020. Tangi Le Bot, a professional sailor and doctor of marine ecology, founded the company, which was quickly joined by a team of scientists, engineers, and professional sailors.

Skravik was able to purchase a second-hand pleasure catamaran, a Corneel 26, thanks to the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund. The vessel is now being tested under real fishing conditions with traps, longlines, lines, and nets after being upgraded to a working sailboat in the second half of 2021. Brest’s maritime territory, which provides a safe sailing area all year, is an ideal location for developing a true “open-air laboratory.”

Mrs Hawa Koomson, Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, has announced that no fishermen will be able to fish in neighboring countries during the closed season beginning next year.

She explained that the ministry had discussed the closed season with fishing authorities in Togo, Benin, and Cote d’Ivoire and had reached an agreement.

“Now, during the closed season, you will be surprised to see that when you go fishing in Togo, Benin, and Cote d’Ivoire, you will be arrested; I am not the only person fighting illegal activities,” she said.

The minister made the remarks on Thursday during a panel discussion at the Accra Fish Festival, which was themed “promoting sustainable fisheries and aquaculture for national development.”

According to the Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), the Irish fishing industry had a “low level of non-compliance” last year.

Its annual report for 2021 details how it tracked over 47,000 landings of commercially caught sea fish worth more than €435 million.

According to the report, SFPA officers conducted 1,345 vessel inspections last year, while 1,115 official control samples were collected.

Following Britain’s exit from the European Union, a “significant operational plan was successfully activated to ensure regulatory alignment,” according to the state regulator.

According to the SFPA, as a result of Brexit, import controls increased from an annual average of 800 (pre-Brexit) to over 3,000.

Experts hope that a new project will recognize traditional owners’ contributions to fish science dating back thousands of years on Western Australia’s south coast.

The Menang Noongar people built historical fish traps that are thought to be around 7,000 years old.

In 1839, European explorer Robert Neill visited the area and collected fish specimens.

The dried fish, which dates back 180 years, has since been displayed at both the Natural History Museum in London and the National Museum of Scotland.

Shona Coyne, a Menang woman who works as the National Museum of Australia’s senior curator and manager of repatriation and community engagement, said many locals were familiar with Robert Neill’s paintings of the traps.

Mercury Levels Low In Most Fish Landed in Ireland

According to the most recent available data, mercury levels in fish landed in Ireland are very low, and the fish is safe for general consumption.

According to Prof Ronan Gormley of UCD’s School of agriculture and food science, this will be “comforting for the Irish seafood industry and consumers alike.”

Prof Gormley explains in the UCD SeaHealth e-bulletin that a monitoring program was put in place for fish landed at major Irish fishing ports in response to the introduction of maximum limits for mercury in fishery products in 1993.

The Marine Institute of Ireland found that mercury levels in fish and shellfish landed in Irish ports are low and “well within the EU human-consumption tolerance level.”

“However, these catches exclude deepwater species like shark, swordfish, marlin, and tuna,” Prof Gormley points out.

Fisherman fined £35k for undersized whelk catch in Manx waters

The captain of an English fishing boat was fined £35,000 for fishing illegally in Manx waters.

On November 22, Dinars Lugans of Lincoln admitted to catching undersized whelks.

The 47-year-fishing old’s gear was also seized, and his license to fish in Manx waters was suspended for a year.

Douglas Courthouse listened Lugans had previously been fined £25,000 for a comparable offense in 2018.

Whelk is a common name for an edible sea snail that lives in a hard shell.

The undersized whelks were discovered onboard the Julia Anne FD5 during an inspection near the Point of Ayre, according to the hearing last week.

The vessel was detained after being escorted to Douglas Harbour, and a subsequent inspection revealed that approximately 19% of the whelk caught were smaller than the legal minimum size of 75mm.

The minimum landing size for whelk is in place to ensure that the creatures can breed successfully and that stocks are not depleted excessively each season.

Streams are open for fishing today

Today is a significant date in the calendars of avid trout fishermen throughout the region.

Several Eastern Region streams that have been closed due to late spawning will reopen for fishing.

Anglers are encouraged to take advantage of the opening date, get in on the action, and have a good time.

The upper sections of Rotorua’s Ngongotaha, Waiteti, and Utuhina streams, as well as Waikaremoana’s Hopuruahine and Mokau streams, will open to fishing on Thursday, December 1.

Because the North Island has been inundated with rain for an extended period this spring, Fish & Game advises anglers to check river levels before venturing out.

According to Fish & Game’s Mark Sherburn, discolored water can be avoided by using different methods for opening.

White River fishing report by Cotter Trout Dock

Arkansas’s Cotter — Trout fishing the White River waters around Cotter in the Arkansas Ozarks in December can be chilly, but cold weather fishing has many advantages, not the least of which is having the river to yourself. You might not see another angler for hours, but there will always be rainbows and a brown or two.

While Bull Shoals Lake is currently sitting almost four feet below its desired elevation for the season (659 feet MSL), at 655.08 MSL, we continue to see fairly sizable releases during the cold snaps, so don’t leave those heavier weights at home. Most days, the river is at or near minimum flow (600 CFS), but be cautious when wading because power demands have brought the river up to nearly 5 units (15,000 CFS) at times. Keep the Bull Shoals dam number handy, or visit the Army Corps of Engineers website to see current conditions, which may have changed quickly.

Fishers must declare they aren’t sending weapons to Russia before they can decommission

Fishermen and women who want to take advantage of the government’s decommissioning program must prove that they are not exporting arms to Russia.

The contract they must sign in front of a lawyer also states that they are not permitted to invest in Russian state-run financial institutions.

The clause has left fishermen perplexed as to why it was included, with one, who requested anonymity, saying, “I have seen and heard some strange things from the Department of Agriculture over the years, but this is just off the wall.”

“The idea that any of us could even be remotely involved or associated with running arms to Russia is insane.”

(ANTARA) – Jakarta To assist fishermen in catching fish, the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) has developed an innovative application that provides information about potential fishing zones (ZPPI).

“Based on remote sensing satellite data, this app aims to provide fishermen with specific information on fishing locations. This innovation assists fishermen in determining (potential) fishing locations “Lindawati Wardhani, Secretary of the Deputy for Research and Innovation Facility at BRIN, said in a statement on Thursday.

She added that the app can also display weather conditions, wave height, wind speed, wind direction, ship distance, and the location of schools of fish.

Fishermen can catch more fish and increase their productivity by utilizing these features.

“This application also includes safety features that fishermen can use in an emergency to show the location of their boats,” a BRIN official explained.
