Florida man takes boat right into a waterspout
Orlando Sentinel (blog)
A Florida man saw a spinning funnel cloud and did what you would expect...from a Florida man. He turned his boat and drove it right through it.
Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

I think its crazy that he would even do this. It would take a lot of guts to take your boat right into a waterspout.

MOZAMBIQUE: Mozambique Sets Aside US$60 Million To Develop Artisanal Fishing

MOZAMBIQUE: Mozambique Sets Aside US$60 Million To Develop Artisanal Fishing | Fishing | Scoop.it

MAPUTO, Oct 1 (BERNAMA-NNN-AIM) -- The Mozambican government is setting aside more than US$60 million over the next five years for the transformation of the country's coastal zone into centres of development.

The project was launched in 2011, focussing on the commercialisation of fishing, the use of refrigeration to conserve the catch and the promotion of artisanal fishing farther out to sea.

According to the Sofala delegate of the Institute for the Development of Small Scale Fishing, Antonio Remedio, delays in implementing the project so far have been caused by bureaucratic problems.

Currently, technicians from the Ministry of Fisheries are working on encouraging people to form groups to receive credit and on providing training on fish processing, he was quoted as saying in Monday's issue of the daily newspaper, Noticias.

The project includes the provision of credit for purchasing inputs and the introduction of innovative products to increase the participation of women. Later this year, in the central city of Beira, the project will launch training in carpentry skills for boat building.

The project will also include the construction of fish markets and the expansion of the electricity network. Access roads will be improved to enable produce to get to market.

Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

I think this is crazy because they spent so much money just to develop a type of fishing. I think it's kind of rediculous that they would spend so much money on something like this but it could make more recreational stuff to do.

Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

I think it's crazy that people can't fish and hunt because of the government shutdown. I think that even though the government is shut down, you should still be able to fish and hunt as long as you have a license.

Fly-fishing: Sea-run cutthroat trout action has been very good on South Sound beaches, while coho action has been fair. Baitfish patterns in pink and white or chartreuse and white are effective.

Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

I think it's weird that molasses is going into the water. This is a big problem because it could be killing the animals that live in the water. I think that they should do something about this and try to get the molasses to not go into the water to save the animals that have the water as their environment.

INDIA: Bumper harvest of red snapper fish

INDIA: Bumper harvest of red snapper fish | Fishing | Scoop.it

The harvesting of Red Snapper fish (Chembally), cultured in cages at Kakkamadonthuruthu in Puthenvelikkara panchayat  was conducted on Monday. The cage culture was initiated as a part of the ‘Samagra Matsyagramam’ project of the Kerala University of Fisheries and Ocean Studies (KUFOS), with the support of Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yogana (RKVY) and Kerala State Fisheries Department, at Puthenvelikkara panchayat. A total of over 225 kg of Red Snapper fish was harvested from the cages.

 

KUFOS provided assistance to farmers for framing the cages using GI pipes of 2 metres each in length and width and 1.5 metre height. “High quality artificial feed, containing 35 per cent of protein contents was provided in the cultures during the first two months. In addition, sardines and shrimps were also used as feed in the later months to provide more nutrition. Earlier, the cage culture of Seabass (Kallanchi) had produced fish with an average weight of 1.5 kg, with a survival rate of 80 percentages,” KUFOS officials said.

 

“KUFOS initiated the ‘Samagra Matsyagramam’ project with the aim of sustainable fisheries development for rural empowerment and food security in the Puthenvelikkara grama panchayat,” they said.

KUFOS VC B Madhusoodana Kurup inaugurated the harvesting programme. He said that farmers could approach the university at any time for assistance regarding fish farming. Panchayat president Sheena Sebastian presided over the function. Principal investigator of the project Daisy C Kappen introduced the project to the public.

Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

I think the red snapper fish are kind of gross. I think its cool though that they're harvesting things like this. I also think it's cool to learn more about the fish and the stuff they do

UNITED KINGDOM: Award for forecast system to warn aquaculture of harmful algal blooms

UNITED KINGDOM: Award for forecast system to warn aquaculture of harmful algal blooms | Fishing | Scoop.it

This is yet another sign of the calibre of expertise and research and development capability at the Scottish Associationof Marine Science [SAMS] at Dunstaffnage. Scientists from there have been part of an award winning European Project, ASIMUTH, led from Ireland and with eleven partners.

 

On Friday, 27th September 2013,  a forecasting system to warn of impending harmful algal blooms has been recognised as this year’s most beneficial earth-monitoring service for European citizens.

 

The Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Forecast is the first forecast system of its kind.

It is designed to combine information from in-situ monitoring, satellite data and biological and physical oceanic models.

 

The service provides a weekly alert for fish farmers and regulators in the Atlantic Europe area to warn them – one week ahead – of the likelihood of a toxic or harmful occurence of target species.

 

Early warning of severe algal blooms will give fish and shellfish farmers time to adapt their culture and harvesting practices so as to reduce potential losses.

 

Professor Keith Davidson, ASIMUTH’s lead scientist at SAMS, says the team was really pleased to receive the award: ‘We’ve been working with the end users and hope very much this forecast system will benefit the aquaculture industry.

 

‘In 2014, subject to funding, the system will be fully operationally tested in Shetland, which has this year suffered months of closure.’

 

HAB Forecast has been developed by the European-funded ASIMUTH [Applied Simulations and Integrated Modelling for the Understanding of Toxic and Harmful Algal Blooms] project.

 

Led by Dr Julie Maguire from Daithi O’Murchu Marine Research Station in Ireland, the project brings together 11 institutes and SMEs from five European countries along Europe’s Atlantic coast.

 

Each of the partner countries experience HAB problems with prolonged closures—up to 10 months—of aquaculture areas due to toxic HAB events with, in some cases, large losses of farmed fish.

 

In 2005, exceptional blooms of Karenia mikimotoi caused widespread mortalities of benthic organisms along Ireland’s west coast. A year later, a high biomass bloom of the same species killed more bottom-dwelling animals off Scotland’s west coast.

 

The HAB Forecast consortium includes experts in aquaculture, modelling, earth observation, HAB monitoring programmes, and biological and physical oceanography.

 

Targetted HAB species include Dinophysis spp., Gymnodinium catenatum, Lingulodinium sp., Karenia mikimotoi and Pseudo-nitzschia spp.

 

One of the other aims of the project is to map the inter-regional movement of HABs and to find out if the transport of HABs between ocean regions can be modelled successfully.

 

HAB Forecast won the award for Best Service Challenge from Copernicus Masters, a European Earth monitoring competition that annually awards prizes to innovative solutions for business and society, based on Earth observation data.

 

This year there were nine challenge categories.

 

As winner of Best Service, HAB Forecast will receive EUR 40,000 in satellite data, made available with financial support by the European Commission.

 

Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

This is interesting to learn some more about the water that surrounds us. The projects that people do are interesting. It's also interesting to see how things were different in different years.

Rick Scott says you need a license to fish on the beach. Really?
PolitiFact
Florida used to have no such requirement, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission requested it during the 2009 legislative session.
Schaeffer Brandt's insight:

I think you should have to have a license to fish on the beach. I think this becaues without a license a lot ot people could be fishing and they could be taking all of the fish and not putting them back in the water. If people are doing this, then the fish population will go down and there won't be enough fish in the ocean.

I think they should have to get a license because otherwise fishermen could take too many of a kind of fish out and the population could become endangered.
