Every time I tried that I was accused of being a storm chaser and have been ignord in resturants and treated badly..after Hugo I was in the commecial flooring business and went to Charlston SC and they were some of the meanest people you ever met ..would not serve us in the shops or resturants and I had to tell one waitress that if not for storm chasers the people at St.Frances hospital would still be with out a roof over their heads..oh well

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

The simple approach to saving bottom fish (as opposed to pelagics) species in the ocean is too set up protected areas (no fishing or catch and release only) and build artificial reefs. We do reef building in Delaware and Maryland. It works very well. Now we need to make these reef areas "no take zones". Having protected areas (with habitat) for fish to reproduce in will make a huge difference. In Maryland at least one of these sites started around an existing shipwreck. Over the decades more cleaned ships and other cleaned appropriate material has been added. Most of these permitted reef sites are less than 4 square miles.

I tottaly agree with the artificial reef stuff but there are even easier ways..ie: toughing the laws, how much you can keep, how long and how many ppl get tbe license to fisb certain species
Look at California as an example..some of the worlds toughest inforced laws on commercial fishing. The industry is expected to grow 30% by 2016. The demand for local fished seafood is on the rise because of these laws...goverments should take action useing California as the model. More jobs, more seafood healthy planet..win win

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

On the other hand, there is some serious opportunities to build or replenish your cruising kitty from these types of folks. I know of one such cruiser who during the frenzy of regulations and political posturing over protecting the poor "manatees" in the Florida Indian River.
- - He set up a booth at a local boater flea market and sold out in minutes with T-shirts emblazoned with a photo of a Manatee and below it the motto "We Love Manatees - - Barbecued or Fried".

The reason I say terrorist groups is some of the tactics they use in spreading they're msg. I have personally caught one of these people pouring bleach into our live well and killing 20 tons of sardines. Very rational for a group committed to saving the animals. I don't care what they're believe system is, they are entitled to it, its the actions some of these groups take..

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

I have tickled trout but by I find it hard to picture the whole kitty thing. I have been stung by the whiskers of catfish, admittedly while taking them off a hook, been stabbed by rockfish on many occasions and the two times I've had sharks on my line I just wanted them off.

On the other hand kittens share with many fish an urge that is triggered by movement to pounce on and kill smaller creatures so in that sense I can see it.

By the way tickling trout involves standing in an icy mountain stream and carefully bringing your submerged hands along a cut bank, upstream, to come under and behind trout that are hanging out there. You can actually stroke their bellies and they don't flee which always seems strange to me given that they can be easily spooked at other times. It is illegal in Canada to catch them in this manner.

Maybe, if the rumors about the Chinese have any basis in fact.

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

interesting could take decade to ban pets as food, but people in China as their situation improves like pets more than for eating.
PETA does not care whether its fish or dog or perhaps a worm.
I used to work with a Hindu woman who said she would eat seafood, fish etc... as it is called the 'flower of the sea', (hence considered a vegetable) but land animals were forbidden for her religion.

Thanx. I enjoyed the excellent parody of my favourite Harry Chapin song.
