As fishing quotas rise, one-third of Ireland’s fleet seeks to quit

DUBLIN, IRELAND (AP) — According to media reports, up to one-third of the nation’s offshore fishing fleet has applied to be decommissioned.

Out of the total of 180 fishing boats, 64 have requested to be decommissioned. Nineteen of those are said to be from Castletownbere in County Cork.

Local officials, however, are concerned because Castletownbere’s economy is so reliant on the fishing industry.

The decommissioning requests are a result of the Brexit Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), in which Ireland agreed with the EU to limit the number of fish that Irish boats could catch. The agreement has made it harder for Irish fishermen to make a living.

The annual Hook Beach fishing contest saw increased participation from anglers this year, and it was a Waimate resident who took home the grand prize of one thousand dollars.

More than 130 people took part in the event that took place on Saturday, and one of the event’s co-organizers, Craig Rowley, reported that the weather was “great” on that day.

Rowley commented on how wonderful the weather was as well as how well-behaved everyone was.

This year’s event had a respectable number of participants, especially considering all of the other activities that took place around the area.

Gaza fishermen rejoice at finally fixing their boats (Fishing News 20221205-20221211)

CITY OF GAZA: Mohammad Jerboa, a technician wearing sky blue overalls near Gaza’s port, rejoices at the opportunity to finally repair fishing boats after a 15-year Israeli ban on vital materials.

After sanding down the faded paint as part of a team of workers patching up rickety boats with sheets of newly imported fiberglass, he called it a “great achievement.”

The material has been prohibited from entering the Palestinian enclave since 2007, as one of the dozens of items Israel believes Gaza militants could use for military purposes.

Due to the state of the boats, the measures had left fishermen struggling for years to pursue their livelihood – until the United Nations brokered a deal that allows fiberglass to reach a supervised workshop.

“I started working at this workshop two weeks ago… this provided a job opportunity for both the fishermen and us as technicians,” Jerboa explained.

OFFSHORE wind farm developers are being urged to use some of their billions of pounds in development funds to safeguard Shetland’s fishing industry.

This includes a call to compensate the local fleet for the potential loss of fishing access and income.

Three proposed floating developments to the east of Shetland, licensed through Crown Estate Scotland’s ScotWind auction, are being backed by Ocean Winds, Mainstream Renewables, and ESB Asset Development.

Three companies’ representatives are scheduled to visit Shetland on Wednesday and Thursday. Shetland News has requested an interview with representatives from the companies behind the proposals.

The Shetland Fishermen’s Association (SFA) is urging them to make a series of commitments to ensure that one of the isles’ most important industries does not lose access to vital fishing grounds.

Safety comes first with early-season ice fishing

(See article about “Ice Fishing” on Wikipedia)

In a typical year with cold weather, ice anglers look for a place to ice fish.

Not this year, because the weather in November was unseasonably warm, so we haven’t had to answer many ice fishing questions.

With the warm weather, few people are considering ice fishing, as it may be some time before we get any good-safe ice in South Dakota, Nebraska, or Iowa.

Before the colder weather arrives and ice begins to form, it’s a good idea to brush up on our ice safety knowledge.

It makes sense to be eager to get out on ponds and smaller lakes. When it comes to ice, there is always a risk when going out on any body of water to ice fish.

The Canadian Coast Guard says it will recover the cost of removing a fishing boat that sank at the Tickle Wharf in Canso, N.S., last month.

The RCMP in Guysborough is also looking into why the boat sank.

“At this time, the matter is under investigation, and it is too early to say whether the sinking was accidental or the result of criminality,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Chris Marshall.

Marshall stated that another federal agency notified the RCMP about the sinking, rather than a member of the public or a victim’s complaint.

In 2021, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans transferred ownership of the wharf to the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Chiefs.

Due to a threatened 378 percent increase in prices, fishing vessels have been forced to withdraw from a shore-side energy supply.

The shoreside scheme for larger vessels in Irish fishery harbors aimed to reduce harmful emissions from diesel generators, which were required for freezer trawlers as well as heat, light, and technical equipment on board while in port.

According to a letter obtained by Donegal Daily from the Department of Agriculture, Food, and Marine, it has been advised that current contracts for electricity supply from Electric Ireland, available from the Office of Government Procurement (OGP), expired on November 30th.

KOTA KINABALU: A fishing trip in Sabah’s northern Kota Belud district was abruptly cut short when a tree fell on him.

At around 8.30 p.m. on Wednesday, the 59-year-old man was fishing along a riverbank in Kampung Tamu Darat (Dec 7).

“The victim and the tree rolled into the 4m-deep river after the tree fell on him,” a Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said on Thursday (Dec 8).

The man, who clung to the log to stay afloat, was eventually rescued by his son.

A fire team led by Kota Belud fire chief Muhammad Syazwan Latun rushed to the scene after being alerted to the incident and hauled the victim from the river and carried him on a stretcher 15m uphill from the riverbank.

On November 13, Jerry Smith of Lewiston, Idaho, made history by catching, measuring, and releasing a large coho or silver salmon. According to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, he was fishing the North Fork of Idaho’s Clearwater River (in the Clearwater National Forest) (IDFG).

Smith measured and registered the 30-inch coho with IDFG. They declared his catch the state’s first catch-and-release record for the ocean-run species, despite the fact that Idaho’s catch-and-release record program has been in place for six years.

The state hopes that Smith’s catch-and-release record for coho will pave the way for future catch-and-release records for cohos and other state fish species.

Anchovy stock depleting in Black Sea, expert warns

An expert has warned that a fishing ban should be implemented because the anchovy stock in the Black Sea has depleted.

Fishermen in the Black Sea ports, which house nearly 75 percent of the country’s fisheries, set sail on Sept. 1.

According to sector representatives, they were expecting plenty of bonito in the upcoming fishing season, with the number of anchovies declining as they began to migrate to Georgia in recent years.

Noting that the Black Sea anchovy stock has reached depletion, Mehmet Aydn, an Ordu University professor, stated, “The main reason for the decrease in stocks is the anchovy massacre in Georgia.” Our fishing boats travel to Georgia and catch very small anchovies there.”

He stated that anchovies with an average size of 7-8 centimeters are currently available.
