Fish deformities linked to oil pollution in U.S. and Alberta - Canada - CBC News | Fishing | Scoop.it
A renowned Alberta water scientist is urging the federal government to take action after he discovered deformities in fish in the Athabasca River downriver from oil sands developments bear a striking resemblance to ones found in fish after spills...

Tanner Reinier's insight:

This article talks about an overdose of oil in some of the water ways in Canada. Some of the fish you are actually catching are or can be effected by this. This could lead to you getting sick or worse after eating the contaminated fish. If the Canadian government does not step in soon very bad things could happen.

I agree that the government needs to take on the situation and help prevent deformations in the fish. If they do not its sounds like there will be an ongoing negative situation for Canada
Brent Van Der Wiel's comment, October 3, 2013 7:52 PM
The government should step in to provide some funding, but not get in the way of groups that will actually be doing the clean ups. The deformities in fish will pass with time as the oil gets cleared up. The best way to solve the problem is get the oil filtered out, then worry about the fish.

I think that they should do something to clean up the oil spills. There are so many bad things that could happen and it could definitely effect the life in the water.

CANADA: Ottawa slows down new online fishing licence system

CANADA: Ottawa slows down new online fishing licence system | Fishing | Scoop.it

The federal government has delayed the introduction of an online licence system for thousands of fishermen due to technical problems.

 

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans is closing the front office of licencing centres across Canada in an effort to reduce costs. Fishermen will have to make an appointment if they wish to speak directly to staff.

 

The new $3-million dollar national web-based system was supposed to go live on Jan. 1, but that's been pushed back until some time in March.

 

"We've slowed the process to do end-to-end testing," said Gus van Helvoort, executive director of Fisheries Modernization at DFO.

 

Each fisherman will get an individual pass code so they can look at their holdings, renew licences and make payments online.

 

Van Helvoort said those pass codes will be issued in March as the department deals with "complexities" integrating data that is recorded differently in different parts of the country.

 

"We were experiencing problems," van Helvoort told CBC News. "The software itself works, the difficulty is getting the data from six regional systems into one system and that's the work we do on a daily basis."

 

Van Helvoort said he's confident DFO will work out the bugs before staff are laid off at licencing centres at the end of March.

 

Fisherman Wayne Russell, from Three Fathom Harbour outside Halifax, is going miss the licence center in Dartmouth.

 

"Just walk in here with your renewal and bam, in and out," he said outside the Dartmouth DFO office. Russell said he will have to rely on a family member to help navigate DFO's online system when it starts up.

 

"My wife's got me trained on it a little bit. I can explore on Google, but as for filling out things she's going to have to help me," he said.

 

The online licence system is one of several changes being introduced in 2013 as the federal government transfers the cost of managing the fishery from taxpayers onto the industry.

 

Beginning in May, lobster fishermen will have to pay for lobster trap tags and find suppliers.

 

Tanner Reinier's insight:

Canada is comming up with a way to pay your anglers licences online. Enabling you to check when your epiration dates are. And what licences you have percused. Due to technical difficaltys this will be delayed.

Should Florida allow Goliath grouper to be culled? | RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program

Should Florida allow Goliath grouper to be culled? | RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program | Fishing | Scoop.it

Goliath grouper, Epinephelus itajara, were documented as commercially extinct in the late 1980’s and have had protection from fishing in USA waters since 1990. They are the largest grouper in the Atlantic Ocean, growing up to the record size of 2.5 m in total length and 450 kg, making them popular to fish. Like many other top-predators, Goliath grouper are very susceptible to being overfished because they are long-lived, slow growing, late to sexually maturity, need spawning aggregations to reproduce and are also very habitat/site specific..........

I think that is sad that the boat sank. But I think they could of maybe checked weather before they set off. It could have gone with out this but you know weather is a weird thing.

Dang, it must really cold on that lifeboat.
