The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture (SOFIA) 2004

Fisheries continue to receive increasing attention not only because they represent an important source of livelihoods and food but also because of their contribution to increasing our understanding of the vast aquatic ecosystem – a strong concern...
Mallory Wheeler's insight:

These graphs and charts show how fishing is just becoming a bigger and bigger industry every year. The numbers just keep getting larger. And, will continue to for years.  Notice how the numbers increase every year most likely because of the new machinery and technology we have to find and capture fish.

The middle of summer. The fishing seems to have slowed. The deep bite that has been so good the last couple of weeks or months seems to have evaporated.

Mallory Wheeler's insight:

This article talks about everything you would need to know when fishing in Alabama. Down to what to use, where to go, and what you will find and catch. A  LOT OF GOOD INFORMATION!!  Especially if you don't exactly know what you're doing or if you think you're doing something wrong when fishing in Alabama.

With the Alabama heat, the bass seem to be laid up, but here are some tips to get you back to casting and catching.

This is an awesome article for fisher beginners, especially for ones who want to improve their fishing abilities/techniques. I would definitely point someone in this direction especially to give them tips on finding the best areas to fish.

Mallory Wheeler's insight:

When I was reading this article it really made me think about things I'd never thought about before. Such as the affect of the nets and the size they are. It would be a good idea to change net regulations that makes it so the nets need to be bigger so the smaller fish can swim away, and so the females have a chance to spawn

Huge molasses spill in Hawaii kills thousands of fish - Fox News

Huge molasses spill in Hawaii kills thousands of fish

The brown, sugary substance spilled Monday from a pipe used to load molasses from storage tanks to ships sailing to California.

Mallory Wheeler's insight:

This is so crazy. You know, at first when you read this you kind of think to yourself, "Oh, a molasses spill, that sounds harmless", but in reality it is a huge deal to these fishermen in Hawaii and surrounding areas where fishing is the major source of income for them. Mistakes like these are very costly to those affected.

This is really surprising how much Hawaii is being effected by this. 1000s of fish were expected to die. I am glad that the state is more worried about safety of the people than anything right now. It is interesting how it will take weeks before the color will go and effects of the molasses will go away.

Fishing in Canada is a wonderful way to spend some free time. Canada has some of the most beautiful natural surroundings in the world. And for the true fisherman, some of the best fishing for sport around as well.

Fishermen in Canada fuming over abundance of Maine lobsters

Fishermen in Canada fuming over abundance of Maine lobsters | Fishing in the United States and Canada | Scoop.it
Tensions between lobstermen in Maine and Canada are boiling over in a dispute caused not by too few lobsters, but by too many.
Mallory Wheeler's insight:

I found this very interesting. Yes, when there is too much of something it can be a bad thing. This shows the tension between the US and Canada when it comes to fishing because it is a big money maker for both of us.

ETI is so helpful and could have been so useful if had been used in 1950. This really tells you how useful this is and how it can really be effective when needed to preserve areas more than others.

The Bottom Line: Rebuilding Plans Work for U.S. Fisheries

The Bottom Line: Rebuilding Plans Work for U.S. Fisheries | Fishing in the United States and Canada | Scoop.it
A congressional hearing today on the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act examined a new report from the National Academies on the law’s effectiveness in rebuilding depleted fish populations.

Via Global Aqua Link
Mallory Wheeler's insight:

This article describes how the Rebuilding Plans for U.S. Fisheries (Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act) actually was effective and did work. But now that mostly all of the delpleted species of fish have numbers back up we still need to continue with keeping it that way and can't go back to overfishing areas.

The world may be running out of places to catch wild fish. The rapid expansion of global fishing over the past 50 years to meet the demand for seafood has left wild fish stocks nearly depleted.

 

A group of scientists published an article in 2010 in the online journal PLoS ONE, which is part of the Public Library of Science, titled “The Spatial Expansion and Ecological Footprint of Fisheries (1950 to Present).” The article examines how marine fishing has expanded geographically over time. In the article, the authors map a global trend that until now has mostly been detailed only qualitatively. The results may be particularly valuable in saving some of the world’s most vulnerable species. Our map of those data is worth republishing here.

Mallory Wheeler's insight:

This really shows you how with all the new machinery for fishing what the effect is number-wise with the number of fish we catch worldwide. The article examines how marine fishing has expanded geographically over time, which is quite drastic when you take a look at the picture. But as you can tell, Not really any parts around or in the United States are overfished. This is because of the laws we have, unlike maybe some other countries and areas that don't have any laws or regualtions about over-fishing certains area or during a given time of the year.
