Always glad to help…….

a Turkish fisheries biologist, Atilla Ertürk with his marketing efforts…should he ask. That Oregon trout looks darn good in a Turkish Fisheries ad! 👍

But then there is the Gauteng, South Africa trout/carp fishery (Trouthunters)…a private fishery I believe, that saw the merit of using our Oregon Trout in their ad campaign. 👍 One would think that Trouthunters had enough beautiful trout in their ponds to capture a stellar image of their own?

Fish Love: Sustainable Love

fish love sbMost fly fishers, today, practice their own form of ‘fish love’ via catch and release, photography/art and their forms of habitat enhancement/preservation.

On a greater scale are the ocean fisheries that are reportedly in crisis. Fish Love is a movement whose mission is to turn the tide on dwindling yields of ocean fish and move toward sustainable yields in the decades to come.

“OUR MISSION

Fishlove wants to end to over-fishing in Europe by 2015 so that fish stocks can recover to above levels that can produce the maximum sustainable yield by 2020.”

Using the provocation of stinky fish love, (the movement hopes to play off PETA’s skin exposure), the hope is to draw your interest long enough to read the message and their sense of urgency. All things considered, I like my fish love imagery better, but the problems remain for the oceans in many regions.

Chesapeake Bay’s Menhaden Overharvesting: Omega & the Union

“I live on the chesapeake and encourage everyone to take 5 minutes and do a couple google searches. It will open your eyes and deeply sadden you at the same time. We have commercial boats from Omega corp cleaning every last menhaden out of the bay. These fish are VERY important to our eco system but unfortunately Omega Protein also has lots of money to give to our local politicians. Spread the word.” Comment at SwittersB from Blair a concerned citizen near Chesapeake Bay.

Catch of increasingly decimated Menhaden fish by Omega (2009)

So, I am being a bit sarcastic here and I admittedly don’t know the scale of resistance toward this seeming over harvest of the fish by Omega…but, I don’t find much on this as a cause for the activist that pine away over Pebble and over harvest in the North Atlantic? Perhaps not the same magnitude? Perhaps the poor Manhaden is not as revered? Perhaps the folks of Chesapeake Bay don’t pack the same cultural weight as the Alaskan tribes, not the commercial fishermen? Just asking. Just wondering??? Perhaps there is a full fledged movement to stop or moderate Omega Protein’s harvest rate? Is it monitored? Certainly the Obama Administration and his enviro guru’s are dialed in on this fish oil, pet food, fertilizer manufacturer??? Someone Trying?

Maybe we need a circle decal with Omega in the middle and a line drawn through. Of course, such feel good, spread the word tools may be too late for the lowly Menhaden?

Someone please enlighten me and not in that indignant tone please. What is being done? Please note the link I provided was posted in 2009, the picture from 2009….it was a supposed problem then. The comment from Blair is now.

The State of the Salmon Runs in Oregon (An indicator?)

Tillamook, Oregon

Tillamook, Oregon

While parked in Tillamook, I noticed this delivery truck. Isn’t it odd that fish is imported, to Oregon, from Alaska? What does it say about the condition of Oregon salmon runs. They use to be legendary, before over harvesting. Now, they are usually spotty or scattered. Given the immense divide between ODFW and Ecobots, as well as the mismanagement by ODFW, the runs may not recover and the bots may forever thwart any industry rebound. Back to the drawing board.
