Oh my cod!! Just 100 Cod Left in North Sea!!

Just 100 cod left in North Sea


Overfishing has left fewer than 100 adult cod in the North Sea, it was reported.


A survey of catches at European ports has found that fishermen did not catch a single cod over the age of 13 last year.

The findings raise concerns for future stocks of cod, which become more fertile as they age. The fish can live as long as 25 years and grow to 6ft.

Researchers warned a lower life expectancy meant a lower birth rate and a faster decline.

Callum Roberts, professor of marine biology at York University, told the Sunday Times that intense industrial fishing meant that few fish survived beyond the age of four, when they reach sexual maturity.

“This means that there are fewer eggs and larvae to perpetuate future generations,” he said.

Looks like the fishermen are over-fishing themselves out of a job.

I hope the tide turns, too, but it appears pretty dismal.

Re: Oh my cod!! Just 100 Cod Left in North Sea!!
Then along the east coast, we have this fish news:

End of the Line for New England Gillnetters?


Just a few weeks ago, NOAA Fisheries Service, informed the seacoast’s fishing community of a closure to all gillnetters for the month of October and November, meaning no gillnet fisherman is allowed to fish from Portland, Maine all the way south to Massachusetts for 2 whole months.

The closure has been set by NOAA due to what they have deemed as a lack of compliance from fishermen with regards to their harbor porpoise take reduction plan. On rare occasions harbor porpoises, a cetacean within the dolphin and whale family, swim into the invisible sink gillnets becoming tangled, often being left to die due to their inability to surface for air.

So as a precaution, NOAA began requiring gillnetters to attach a device called a pinger to each net which gives out a high-pitched noise detectable by porpoises and other large mammals in order to deter them from becoming trapped in the nets, a technique that is proven to be 90% effective.

However, when these regulations were put into place there was little information provided to fishermen on how to operate the pingers to most effectively repel the porpoises. It’s not always obvious whether a pinger is functioning because the sound is often undetectable by the human ear.

As a result this past year, the local gillnetting fleet was determined to be only 40% pinger compliant, hence the closure as punishment. But how did management arrive at this number? Therein lies the controversy.

What constitutes being compliant? How many boats were observed? How are fishermen supposed to be sure their pingers are properly working? What about the 10% of the pingers that are proven to be ineffective?

Not only will the fishermen be impacted, but the infrastructure of the system as a whole will take a hit, establishments such as the Yankee Fishermen’s Cooperative.

With this closure in place, there will be an estimated loss of 3 million dollars, both directly and indirectly, to our local communities, however our NH fishermen will be paying the ultimate price.

In 2003 scientists revealed that since the 1950's 90% of the fish were fished out of the sea:

At the rate we were going, we should be now entering the end game where the large fish are now gone.

And from what you are digging up, I guess we are at the end.

There was a time that the explorers would have to navigate through such large qualities of cod that their ships would slow down from the friction.

It's getting very difficult to find wild caught fish in the grocery stores. Everything is farm-raised on dead chickens, feathers, and other refuse. There's a toxic slime that comes to the top when those things are baked.
In his book, "Between Two Ages," Brzezinski wrote: "The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values."
