Fisheries Performance Incentives Initiative Fisheries Performance Incentives Initiative is Story No. 4 from 'Reitake, Partnership in Profile' DVD Series. Kiribati is surrounded by the second largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the world, with very large and much sought-after tuna stocks. This Initiative, developed with the Australian Government, aims to establish good governance and increased revenue from Kiribati's valuable marine resources, thus bringing improved benefits to the people of Kiribati.
Management Effectiveness of the World's Fisheries This video describes the the paper by Mora et al (Plos Biology 2009 7:e1000131) which quantified the management effectiveness of the world's fisheries regimes and how management affects fisheries sustainability. All countries in the world were found to be far behind good standards of management while pressures on policy processes had the strongest role on the fade of sustainability. The paper is at:

Alaska Fisheries Science Center Longline Survey NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center - Every year over more than 35 million pounds of sablefish are caught in the waters off Alaska. Also known as black cod, or butterfish, sablefish are prized for their flavor, texture, and health benefits, making them one of the highest-valued finfish per pound in Alaska. The Alaska Fisheries Science Center's longline survey is one of the oldest times series of groundfish abundance in Alaska and is conducted annually to help monitor and manage the sablefish fishery and preserve the commercial fishing legacy for which Alaska is known.

Episode 4 Carp Fishing at Lakeside Fisheries with Harry Andy and Rob In this short video we travel to Ranskill. Both Harry and Andy beat their personal bests! Rob catches an 18lb Common and a 12lb Mirror. Harry runs through his rig and baits that hes using. There are five lakes at the Lakeside Fishery complex, comprising a 40-peg Match Lake, two pleasure lakes, a specimen lake and even a fly lake. The Match Lake holds carp to double figures, ide, skimmers, tench, roach, bream, rudd, chub and crucians, providing year-round sport. On the specimen lake carp up to 37lb and only six pegs with a good head of twenty ponders.
From Sea to Shelf-Fisheries of the Future This new video shows how Greenpeace has been encouraging retailers to clean up their seafood shelves - by switching to a sustainable seafood sourcing policy they can change the world's fisheries and help to protect the world's oceans.
Rebuilding Global Fisheries - Worm et al. Science paper A groundbreaking assessment of marine fisheries and ecosystems reveals that overfishing has been reduced in several regions around the world, resulting in some stock recovery. Importantly, the work bolsters the case that sound management can contribute to the rebuilding of fisheries elsewhere. The study is a result of a remarkable collaboration of 21 coauthors: Boris Worm, Ray Hilborn, Trevor Branch, Jeremy Collie, Christopher Costello, Michael Fogarty, Elizabeth Fulton, Jeffrey Hutchings, Heike Lotze, Pamela Mace, Tim McClanahan, Stephen Palumbi, Ana Parma, Daniel Ricard, Andrew Rosenberg, Reg Watson, and Dirk Zeller. The project was based at the National Center for Ecological ***ysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), funded by the National Science Foundation and the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Bermudians Protest Fisheries Agency of Japan Boat "Today Bermudians demonstrated in front of a Fisheries of Japan patrol boat tied on the Hamilton harbourfront. The demonstration was against the Fisheries Agency of Japan, the government-owned agency responsible for the whaling campaign in the Antarctic where over a thousand whales are being targeted for 'scientific research'. The whale meat is sold commercially. Surveys show that only 1% of Japanese regularly eat whale meat- only 11% support whaling at all. The Japanese cannot sell the whale meat they already have. More than 4800 tons of surplus whale meat is stockpiled in freezers. Only 1% of Japanese eat whale meat, which is highly toxic, and only 11% support whaling." "I saw a humpback off South Shore today, and another two yesterday. These humpbacks could be targeted for 'research' by the Fisheries Agency of Japan. Despite a moratorium on commercial whaling enacted by the International Whaling Commission in 1986, the Japanese have been hunting whales in increasing numbers. Japan has exploited a loophole that allows member states to kill whales for scientific research." "Japan has been 'researching' whales with great effectiveness, killing more than 25000 whales in the Southern Ocean and the North Pacific. This year the Japanese added 50 humpbacks and 50 fin whales to the 935 minke whales included in the self-imposed total number of whales to be targeted for their 'research'." "The "Mihama" is a patrol boat belonging to the Fisheries Agency of Japan. These patrol ...
Caught Out... The way forward for fishery subsidies This short UNEP documentary draws the attention of the viewer to the causes of overfishing, the role of fisheries subsidies and approaches to fisheries reform. It underlines the importance of fisheries subsidies reform and in this context refers to the valuable role that new WTO rules on fisheries subsidies could play. The film also points out the need for special and differential treatment for developing countries in order to ensure that new rules would not represent a hindrance to the sustainable development of their fisheries and describes the vital role of sustainability criteria for subsidies that would be exempt from a prohibition.

Oil Spill Puts Fisheries, Birds at Risk Along US Gulf Coast This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from | http In May, American officials suspended all fishing in parts of the Gulf of Mexico because of the huge oil spill. The restrictions gave scientists time to study the effects on seafood in the gulf. The order extended from the mouth of the Mississippi River in Louisiana east to waters of Pensacola Bay in Florida. The affected waters include areas off the coasts of Mississippi and Alabama. On April twentieth an oil drilling rig, the Deepwater Horizon, exploded and sank about eighty kilometers from the Louisiana coast. BP is trying different ways to stop the leak from a damaged undersea well and control the spilled oil. The chief of British Petroleum blames failures by the rig's operator, Transocean of Switzerland. But BP says it will pay cleanup costs and all "legitimate claims" for losses and damages from the spill. BP is also hiring local fishing boats to help with the cleanup. Eighty percent of the seafood eaten by Americans is imported. But the fishing industry in Louisiana is responsible for about a third of all seafood caught in the United States. The fishing ban did not affect state waters west of the Mississippi River. Those waters represent seventy-seven percent of Louisiana's total seafood production. Ewell Smith from the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board says seafood from the unaffected area is safe to eat. Seafood is worth nearly two and a half billion dollars to the ...

NATURE | A Mystery in Alaska | Are Fisheries Guilty? | PBS In the 1970s, the pollock industry in Alaska expanded to become the largest fishery in the world. Around the same time, sea lions began to disappear. Despite other possible factors, many people thought the fisheries had been caught with the smoking gun. NATURE's "A Mystery in Alaska" airs on PBS Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 8 pm (check local listings), part of the 27thseason of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thir***/WNET New York for PBS.

Re-interpreting the Fisheries Crisis Popular literature and the pages of Science and Nature have reported on the collapse of the world's fisheries. While there are many problems, most of these fisheries are producing at near maximum potential, and the loss of potential harvest from overfishing is small. In this program, Ray Hilborn discusses changes in objectives of fisheries management, ones with more concern about ecosystems and profitable fishing industries, and how there are many successful sustainable fisheries in the world from which we can learn.

The Dubliners - Greenland Whale Fishery Song
Northeast Fisheries Observer Training Video Obtained by Captain Patrick Paquette through the Freedom of Information Act and subsequent lawsuit settlement. See contextual information below for information about what you're seeing in the video.... 0:26-0:37 These are midwater pair trawlers for Atlantic herring, the most powerful fishing vessels in the northeast. They drag a net that stretches longer than a football field to catch everything in their path. 0:38-1:06: This is the high tech electronic fishing station on the bridge of one of these vessels. It is industrial. Now we see the immense net being brought in towards the boat. The net is full of dead fish. Can you tell what kind of fish they are? I don't think an observer can either. 1:07-1:50 Here we see a federal observer at the fish chute observing what is being pumped into the hold. She will take random basket samples to collect data. The problem here is that we clearly see three crew members in two locations "pre-sorting" or removing fish that are not herring from the chute before the observer can account for it. This untargeted fish is called bycatch and a fishery as industrial as this one needs to have its bycatch accounted for so we know what kind of an impact it is having on other fish and marine mammals. Pre-sorting -- like the haddock you see being gaffed here -- is allowed as long as the catch is set aside for the observer. These haddock will be counted, but will then be dumped overboard dead. Pre-sorted catch is not always made available to observers ...

Fisheries Stewardship in Action PART 1 of 2 The cod moratorium changed Newfoundland and Labrador and it certainly changed the province's fishing society. In response, fish harvesters and their union - Fish, Food and Allied Workers (FFAW/CAW) - took action to rebuild fisheries and to have more of a say in fisheries science and management. They began to work with DFO to build a relationship based on shared stewardship of our ocean's resources. This is their story.

New EU Fisheries Policy proposed by European Commission On April 22nd 2009, the European Commission adopted its Green Paper for a reform of the Common Fisheries Policy and launch a consultation campaign to get reactions from those that will be affected. The Commission has made available this edited video report to broadcasters to explain what is at stake. "The fisheries of the European Union are indeed suffering from overexploitation of living aquatic resources, notably caused by the chronic overcapacity of the Community fishing fleet. This imbalance is the root of most of the problems in the sector: reduced catches, competition from imports, decreasing prices, economic vulnerability, lack of respect for regulations, etc. The European Commission is launching a broad consultation within the sector to find a solution to this crisis." 00:00:00 We are in the North Sea, on a British longliner targeting cod. North Sea cod stocks are doing a little better. In 2005, this endangered stock was the first to benefit from a recovery plan covering several years, developed at the European level. But the recently observed signs of recovery should not hide the reality of the situation. North Sea cod is still overexploited. 00:00:29 Graphics As we can see from this graph, the fishing mortality remains significant. For decades now, catches have removed over 50% of the population every year, and are dominated by immature juveniles. Consequently, the cod population is decreasing and is currently well below the level scientists recommend should be ...
