Every year, the LDWF Get Out & Fish! Stockings of Rainbow Trout are coming up soon. Beginner Rainbow Trout Fishing has been added to the LDWF Fishing Course Series so that fishermen in Louisiana have a better chance of catching this unique fish. Come learn from LDWF biologists about the best ways to catch your own rainbow and how to use the right tackle and bait.


Beginner Rainbow Trout Fishing will be for people who already know the basics of fishing or who have taken an Intro to Fishing course. After an hour of fishing with LDWF staff, participants will learn how stocked Rainbow Trout act, how to catch them, how to use equipment, how to choose bait, and how to do basic rigging.


Each 2-hour class will be for people of all ages, and only 10 people will be able to join. The course will be fast-paced and designed to teach adults what they need to know so that they can help kids fish during the program. There will be equipment available, but people are also welcome to bring their own.


All of the people who come will get a package from Cabela’s, Magic Bait, and the Coastal Conservation Association of Louisiana with informational materials, gear for beginners, and more. Anglers over the age of 18 must have a valid recreational fishing license, and anglers under the age of 16 must be with an adult. Get Out & Fish! ponds all over the state will offer eight different courses.

University awarded £1.6 million to support sustainable fishing of critical species (Fishing News 20221212-20221218)

Almost £1.6 million has been given to the University of Plymouth to pay for two projects that will study how commercially important fish species can be managed in a more sustainable way.

The money, which comes from the government’s £100 million UK Seafood Fund, will help a number of species in the English Channel that are at risk of being overfished.
They include fish like pollack, sharks, and skates, which are important to local fishing communities but about which not much is known right now.


In the third round of the Fisheries Industry Science Partnership (FISP) scheme, two of the five projects that will get more than £3.5 million are these two. It is part of the UK Seafood Fund and aims to collect important information to help the UK protect marine habitats and manage its fisheries.

“A proper understanding of important marine species is vital if we are to manage our fisheries sustainably and safeguard the fishing and seafood sector for future generations. By drawing on the expertise of the fishing community and combining this with our world class researchers, we can discover new ways to manage our stocks and protect vulnerable fisheries.”

Tech companies work to make fishing, and aquaculture more sustainable

People who fish for a living find it hard to take bycatch out of their nets. It’s expensive, takes a lot of work, and wears down the fishing boat and gear. When marine animals are caught by accident, the effects are worse and most of the time fatal. From an ecological point of view, killing too many animals by accident can upset whole marine ecosystems and the food chains that keep them in balance. Still, up to 40% of all the fish caught in the world are bycatch.


SafetyNet Technologies, a company based in the UK, is trying to find a technological solution. The company uses LED lights that come in different colors and levels of brightness. Fishermen can attach these lights to their gear to attract certain fish. They can change the lights to attract the kind of fish they want.

In a video interview with Mongabay, Tom Rossiter, head of precision fishing and sales lead at SafetyNet Technologies, said, “Different species can see different lights and are drawn to them.” “We use these triggers to move certain species towards the net.”


Rossiter says that surveys with fishermen in the U.K. and the U.S. who have tried out the lighting technology show that it does reduce bycatch, but larger trials are needed to prove that it works. “We need to add more people to the trial so that we can be more sure about the numbers,” he said.

The US has put sanctions on Chinese people and businesses that are thought to have violated human rights or broken fishing laws while working in other countries or international waters.

On December 9, the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced sanctions against two people, Li Zhenyu and Xinrong Zhuo, and several companies, including Dalian Ocean Fishing Co., Ltd. (DOF), Pingtan Marine Enterprise, Ltd., which is listed on the Nasdaq, and eight other companies that are connected to Pingtan. It also found that 157 fishing boats with Chinese flags were linked to these companies.

The department got a lot of reports of bad working conditions and illegal fishing methods, like illegally fining sharks, on many vessels that were part of the approved companies’ networks.

Fishing licenses go digital

The Environment Agency is switching to digital licenses to keep up with changing customer needs and lessen its impact on the environment.

Anglers are being told to get a digital fishing license because they won’t be able to buy a license from the Post Office after January 16, 2023, as the Environment Agency announced today (15 December).

Since the early 1990s, anyone who wants to fish with a rod and line in freshwater has been able to get the licenses over the counter at the Post Office.

But the latest data from the Environment Agency shows that sales of fishing licenses at the Post Office have gone down over the last ten years and that almost 90% of anglers now buy their licenses online.

Eight children among 39 rescued from migrant boat

A government source says that 39 people were saved from a migrant boat that started to sink in the Channel on Wednesday. Eight of them were children.

The number is different from what Kent County Council said earlier, which was that 12 kids were on the boat and had to be taken in.


At a council meeting, it was said that one of the four people who died was a teenager and that four other people are still missing.

They were on a crowded ship that started to sink in cold water.

The Coastguard said that the search for the four people who are still thought to be missing came to an end at 17:00 GMT on Thursday.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said that ships in the area were asked to keep an eye out and let the Dover Coastguard know what they saw.


Video from Wednesday’s rescue showed the inflatable boat filling with water as people in T-shirts and thin life jackets screamed for help.

The owner of the fishing trawler, Ben Squire, shared a video of his crew pulling people out of the water and onto the boat with ropes.

The people who were saved from the dinghy told the BBC that they had each paid £5,000 to cross the English Channel.

Early Thursday morning, a fishing boat ran aground on Santa Cruz Island, which is one of the Channel Islands.

Around 2 a.m., someone told the Coast Guard about what was going on. Officials say that the Speranza Marie, a 60-foot boat with six people on board, ran aground in Chinese Harbor.

The Coast Guard says that another fishing boat came to the scene, helped the crew get back to their own boat safely, and took them to Ventura. Everyone was safe.

The boat is now being saved by crews from Vessel Assist Ventura.


The Coast Guard says that cleanup crews are now on the scene and working to stop the fuel from spreading and get it back. When it ran aground, it was carrying about 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel, people say.

Wildlife hasn’t been hurt yet, but the Coast Guard says crews are looking for signs of it.

The cause of what happened is being looked into.

In addition to the Coast Guard, the response includes the Santa Barbara County Fire Department and the Office of Spill Prevention and Response from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

As the blue cod fishing season starts next week in the Marlborough Sounds, fisheries officers are getting ready for a busy summer.

The season for fun starts on Tuesday and goes through the end of August next year.

Howard Reid, the regional fisheries compliance manager for the Ministry of Primary Industries, said that fishermen should review the rules before going out on the water.

Reid said, “We’re reminding fishermen that they’re allowed to catch two blue cod a day and that each one must be at least 33 cm long and can’t be filleted at sea.”

Union says new federal fishing license buyback program is problematic

Salmon fishermen now have to make a hard choice because the federal government has started a program to buy back fishing licenses. For years, fishing opportunities have been limited and salmon populations have been going down. Do they sell their business licenses or keep going through it, hoping that things will get better?


Guy Johnston has been fishing for 46 years. He has been able to stay afloat, but he feels bad for other harvesters who are having trouble making money because there are fewer places to fish.

“Now they say that they want to take back half of that fleet. We’re losing the ability to provide salmon for communities in British Columbia, which is bad for food security, and their answer to almost any question is “well, shut it down,” said Johnston.

In 2021, the federal government started a nearly $650 million program to help improve the number of salmon in the Pacific Ocean. One part of this is the plan to buy back commercial fishing licenses, which was announced this week.
