Water sprayers are the second generation physical seabird mitigation device. Early indications are that they are very effective in deterring seabirds from warps (wire cables) on which birds can become tangled. Sprayers are shown here being used in conjunction with buoys ("pinkies") because pinkies remain the only approved mitigation method. These physical mitigations are part of a larger seabird management plan that also manages the release of offal because offal can attract seabirds to the vessel.

Fishermen earn their living by competing with every other fisherman on the ocean for the most fish. The result has been overfishing, collapsed fisheries, and life threatening work conditions. Boat Captain Mark Lundsten describes his own experience on the Bering Sea. Today many fisheries have adopted "Catch Shares," a program that gives fishermen ownership in the resource. With individual, guaranteed, tradeable quotas, they have become better stewards of the fishery and learned to manage their shares for a productive and sustainable future. Once a skeptic, Mark became an advocate of catch shares and explains how they changed his life as a fisherman.

The Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) is advising citizens, tourists and all marine interests to be cautious while in and around the Atlantic coast of the island. In a social media post, TEMA said various coastlines on the Atlantic side of the island have been affected by sargassum. These areas include Lambeau, Rockly Bay, Bacolet, John Dial, Hope, Argyle, Roxborough, and Speyside. The Agency said satellite imagery indicates there is sargassum currently off the coast of Guyana. TEMA assured that it will be monitoring the movement of the seaweed with the assistance of the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service. TEMA maintained that sargassum does not sting or irritate skin, nor is the odour toxic. The agency warned however that an odour is present during the decomposition process and insects may be present at that time.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) artificial reef program deployed two more vessels to enhance recreational fishing opportunities and enhance ocean habitat for fish in September of 2016. The program, back in gear following restoration of federal funding towards the Shark River and Axel Carlson reef sites in state waters, sank the 68-foot trawler Austin on September 21 as part of the Axel Carlson Reef, 4.4 nautical miles southeast of Manasquan Inlet. “For more than 30 years, New Jersey has had a robust program of creating artificial reefs that enhance offshore habitats for fish and draw in thousands of anglers and sport divers,” said DEP Commissioner Bob Martin, who was on-hand for the sinking of the Austin. “These latest additions continue that tradition and firmly establish the program as being back in business.” The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has provided $119,250 towards the artificial reef program after NJDEP was able to reach a compromise that allows commercial interests to have continued access to portions of the two reefs within state waters and calls for the construction of a new reef for recreational fishing, also in state waters (inside of 3 miles). At Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council's October 5 meeting at the Stockton Seaview Hotel at 401 South New York Road in Galloway, NJ, the council’s monitoring team will provide a report at 1 p.m. on New Jersey’s request for Special Management Zone (SMZ) Consideration for the other artificial reef sites located in federal waters outside of 3 miles. The Austin, a 68-foot trawler on the Axel Carlson Reef - was the fourth additional deployment to the New Jersey’s Artificial Reef Program this year on September 21, 2016, which was to be followed two days later by the 115-foot surf clam vessel, Lisa Kim which was sunk as part of the Wildwood Reef, 8.3 miles northeast of Cape May Inlet. The vessels are among as many as 10 total the state plans to have deployed by the end of fall. Built in 1956 in Tampa, Florida the Austin was originally used as a shrimp boat in the Gulf of Mexico - Bill Ford purchased her in 1966 and brought her to Point Pleasant where she was converted to a trawler fishing New Jersey waters until 2013. She is the sister ship of the McGinty which already lies on the Axel Carlson Reef. The Austin was deployed in memory of John Grady III who passed in 2007 - John worked as a mate on party boats and owned several fishing boats. The site will be known as the "Shady Reef." Glenn Egerter, the son of Capt. Willie Egerter of the party boat Dauntless in Point Pleasant, along with Kevin Lovgren constructed a massive cross measuring 12 by 7-1/2 feet made of black walnut timbers which has affixed to the Austin. The cross was covered with hand carved scrolls that are heartfelt remembrances of a good friend and avid fisherman. Funding of the deployment was made by the Grady family and the Greater Point Pleasant Charter Boat Association through donations to the Ocean Reef Foundation of New Jersey. After a hiatus of nearly five years, three vessels were deployed over the summer. The sinking of these vessels was made possible by an agreement reached by the Christie Administration regarding access to reefs by recreational and commercial fishing interests that resulted in restored federal funding for the artificial reef program. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had suspended funding due to concerns that commercial fishing was intruding on and hampering recreational fishing on artificial reefs in state waters. The compromise was reached in 2013, and codified in rule changes that were adopted by the DEP in November 2015. Among the vessels expected to be deployed before the end of the year is the former U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Tamaroa immortalized in the book The Perfect Storm and the movie by the same name for its rescue role during a brutal nor’easter in 1991. Originally a U.S. Navy fleet tug, the Tamaroa is also the last surviving vessel from the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima (details in the October edition of the New Jersey, Delaware Bay edition of The Fisherman Magazine). Old vessels and other materials used in artificial reefs provide surfaces for organisms such as algae, barnacles, mussels, sea stars, and sea fans to grow on. This colonization occurs in as little as two weeks. These organisms attract smaller fish which, in turn, attract black sea bass, tautog, summer flounder, scup, lobster and other sought-after species. In a press conference prior to the deployment at Axel Carlson, NJDEP Commissioner Martin referred to recreational fishing in New Jersey as a $2 billion industry overall that supports nearly 10,000 jobs.

http://bit.ly/MenhadenDraftAmendment2 "The most important fish in the sea" has been put through more than 50 years of overfishing. The stock is at a record low. Who is suffering from the loss of menhaden? You are. Striped bass, bluefish and other game fish have lost 90 percent of their favorite food source over the last 25 years alone. In 1955, menhaden made up 77 percent of the diet of striped bass. Now, menhaden account for just 7 percent. Young striped bass are increasingly eating weakfish juveniles to supplement their diets, putting both stocks at risk. Bluefish eat 30 percent less menhaden than they did in the early '90s. As fisherman, we need to unite and let the ASMFC hear us loud and clear. The public comment period is now open and it's time to put the regulations into effect for the 2013 season.

About the Lecture The scales at which recreational fisheries are managed do not match the ecology of the species that comprise the fisheries. Moreover, most fisheries management plans do not include information about habitat requirements for target species. These disconnects poses challenges to effective fisheries conservation. This presentation will use examples from recent research to highlight these disconnects. For example, management of the recreational fishery for snook (Centropomus undecimalis) in Florida, focus on stock assessments, discard mortality estimates, and catch and release education. Missing are management actions that consider the habitat mosaic required for snook ontogenetic connectivity. Additional focal species include bonefish (Albula vulpes), tarpon (Megalops atlanticus), and permit (Trachinotus falcatus). Incorporating the ecological-scale factors into conservation strategies for coastal recreational fisheries is essential to ensuring sustainable fisheries, especially given the increasingly critical degradation and loss of coastal habitats. About the Speaker Dr. Aaron Adams is a Senior Scientist at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and the Director of Science and Conservation for Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. He received a bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College in Maryland, a Master’s degree from the College of William and Mary, and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and holds a Coast Guard Captain’s License. He has lived, conducted research, and fished on both coasts of the US and throughout the Caribbean. His scientific focus is on conducting applied research with conservation implications, with a particular interest in fish habitat ecology. In addition, he is also an avid angler, and has authored three books, contributed to five books, and written numerous magazine articles that translate fish science into layman’s terms.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) celebrates the entry into force of the Port State Measures Agreement to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (PSMA). More than 30 countries, as well as the European Union on behalf of its 28 member states, are already parties to the PSMA, the world’s first ever binding international treaty specifically targeting Illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing. Adopted as an FAO Agreement in 2009, this ground-breaking accord went into effect on 5 June 2016 and is now legally binding for the parties and regional organizations that have adhered to it. Script Marine ecosystems are believed to hold the key to our origins and have the potential to determine our future. The health of our planet depends on how we treat our oceans and seas. The blue world contains 50-80% of life on Earth. The blue world provides a vital source of food and nutrition. The blue world generates employment and trade. Seafood trade globally in 2015: $135 billion, the largest food export in the world. Developing countries account for some 60% of total fishery exports. Illegal fishing is a global threat to ecosystem, food security, economic health. Illegal fishing captures up to 26 million tonnes of seafood per year, or more than 15% of the world’s total annual capture fisheries output. Illegal fishing particularly affects developing countries, but also hampers efforts for sustainable fisheries management worldwide. Approximately 1 in 10 people rely on fisheries and aquaculture for their livelihoods. Years of diplomatic efforts promoted by FAO resulted in the first ever binding international treaty on illegal fishing. A set of measures and proceduresto ensure countries deny landings of illegally-caught fish that could enter into markets and onto the plates of unsuspecting consumers. As countries around the world adhere to the treaty, FAO invites all governments to join this collective push to stamp out illegal fishing: The FAO Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. Protecting our natural resources. Safeguarding sustainable fisheries to help feed the world. "I hope that more and more countries will join FAO in this global effort and show their commitment to legal and sustainable fisheries", José Graziano da Silva, FAO Director-General.

Dr. Voss earned his Ph.D. in biological sciences at Florida International University in Miami, and is a proud alumnus of Elon University in North Carolina where he completed his bachelor’s degree. About the Lecture Through CIOERT, Harbor Branch researchers have partnered with NOAA to explore and characterize the diverse, beautiful, and extensive coral reefs in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS) and adjacent banks 100-150 miles off the coast of Texas. Since 2009, Dr. Voss and colleagues have surveyed this reef system extensively using a combination of remotely operated vehicles, technical diving, traditional SCUBA, and fish acoustics. Much of the Flower Garden reefs lies in mesophotic depths, or the "twilight zone", resulting in unique communities of corals, invertebrates, algae, and fish. These studies have demonstrated that mesophotic coral habitats in the northwest Gulf of Mexico are more extensive than previously known and provide critical information to support the FGBNMS sanctuary expansion plan.

Aboadze is a town in the Western region of Ghana. It is 20 kilometres from the centre Takoradi the Western regional capital. The serves both as a dormitory town as well as an industrialized zone. It houses Ghana's only Thermal plant for electricity production. The town is bordered on east by Shama on the west by Inchaban and on the south by Atlantic Ocean. Fishing is the main activity in the area. The community uses long wooden canoes, with motor, sails and oars. Canoes are painted in vivid colors and travel long distances (up to 3 to 5 hours from the coast, between 5 to 60 miles, with a depth ranging from 40 to 120 yards) all the year long. Using nets, they catch ebue, nicafona, cassava fish, sole, eel, and sardinella among others. During the rainy season from June to October the small herring called eban is also available as it comes to shore. The fish is sold fresh or after being smoked in traditional ovens. Concerned by the decreasing availability of fish and fish varieties due to oil exploration activities by international companies such as Tullow oil. Unsustainable fishing techniques such as light fishing (the use of light to attract fish) applied by some local fishing groups, as well as pair trolley fishing mostly by vessels owned by Chinese are the main challenges they face.

K. Neil Patrick - 2015 IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame Induction IGFA Trustee Neil Patrick started game fishing in 1972. He had a family shipping business on the wharves of Fremantle, Australia, but it was his love of fishing that inspired him to purchase Halco Tackle in 1980. Founded by Hal Cooper in 1950, Halco was mainly known for making metal lures on a small scale in Mosman Park, Western Australia. Under Neil’s guidance, Halco began a program of innovation and expansion, creating a wide range of hard plastic lures and becoming one of the biggest lure makers in the world. Neil technically “retired” in 2001, handing the reins of the business over to his son, Ben. However, Neil, Ben and the rest of the Halco team can still be found spending countless hours traveling around Australian waters and beyond testing their newest lures. In addition to being an industry leader, Neil is also an accomplished angler. A heavy-tackle billfish specialist, he has fished all over the world for giant blue and black marlin, fighting 1000 lb fish in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic oceans. Following in the steps of renowned angler Sir Garrick Agnew’s pioneering work, Neil helped develop the Rottnest Trench as a world renowned marlin fishing destination; in 1985, he led the way in game fish conservation by being the first angler to tag and release a blue marlin in the Rottnest Trench. It was, however, at the famed Tropic Star Lodge in Panama during a birthday trip where the Australian would experience his most memorable marlin catch. On January 25, 2005, Neil hooked into something big off the Zane Grey Reef. Fellow IGFA Trustees Dr. Guy Harvey and Bill Shedd happened to be fishing nearby, shooting an episode of Guy’s “Portraits of the Deep,” with plans to deploy pop-up satellite tags on black marlin. As luck would have it, Neil was indeed hooked up to a giant fish- estimated to be between 1200 – 1400 lb. Knowing that he very likely had a new 50 lb class black marlin world record on the line, Neil made the decision to forgo the record opportunity and bring the fish in quickly so that she could be safely tagged and released. In the two months that she was tagged, Neil’s black marlin swam over 1200 nautical miles. For his impressive release of this huge fish and his many other accomplishments as a heavy tackle angler, Neil was presented with the IGFA’s prestigious Gil Keech Heavy Tackle Award. Neil is a leader in game fish conservation and has long championed the rights of recreational anglers. He served as President of the Perth Game Fishing Club from 1981 to 1985, and in 1986 he was voted President of the Game Fishing Association of Australia. Neil’s desire to see marlin and other pelagic species remain viable and sustainable earned him the role of Recreational Representative for the West Coast Tuna Management Advisory Committee where he fought for recognition of the value of the recreational offshore pelagic fishery against the commercial sector. His concern for the Indian Ocean’s marlin and other pelagic species stocks has led him to attend several Indian Ocean Tuna Commission meetings where he voices the concerns and opinions of recreational fishermen. Neil has been a member of the IGFA Board of Directors since 2002 and also serves as Co-Chairman of the IGFA’s Fisheries Conservation Committee. In 2013, he was elected as the founding Chairman of Keep Australia Fishing, with the mission to engage Australia’s recreational fishing community to protect, promote and further develop the opportunities of recreational fishing. Earlier this year, Patrick became only the fifth person to be inducted into the Australian Fishing Trade Association (AFTA) Hall of Fame. For his unwavering commitment to the sport of fishing and game fish conservation, the IGFA celebrates Neil Patrick. IGFA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwwDw4NBHLs

A radioactive isotope linked to water from power plant cooling canals has been found in high levels in Biscayne Bay, confirming suspicions that Turkey Point’s aging canals are leaking into the nearby national park. Highlights: Radioactive ‘tracer’ detected at up to 215 normal levels near canals ~~~ County commission set to discuss cooling canal problems Tuesday ~~~ Threat from pollution to public, marine life not addressed in report ~~~ According to a study released Monday by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, water sampling in December and January found tritium levels up to 215 times higher than normal in ocean water. The report doesn’t address risks to the public or marine life but tritium is typically monitored as a “tracer” of nuclear power plant leaks or spills. The study comes two weeks after a Tallahassee judge ordered the utility and the state to clean up the nuclear plant’s cooling canals after concluding that they had caused a massive underground saltwater plume to migrate west, threatening a wellfield that supplies drinking water to the Florida Keys. The judge also found the state failed to address the pollution by crafting a faulty management plan. This latest test, critics say, raise new questions about what they’ve long suspected: That canals that began running too hot and salty the summer after FPL overhauled two reactors to produce more power could also be polluting the bay. “How much damage is that cooling canal system causing the bay is a question to be answered,” said Everglades Law Center attorney Julie Dick, who had not had a chance to review the report. “There are a lot more unknowns than knowns and it just shows how much more attention we need to be paying to that cooling canal system.” County commissioners, who have kept a close eye on the canals and objected to the state’s management plan, ordered the additional monitoring of bay water last year. The commission is scheduled to discuss the canals, along with another study by University of Miami hydrologist David Chin examining problems linked to adding more water to the canals, at a meeting Tuesday. FPL officials declined to comment Monday evening. Over the last two years, problems with the canals have worsened exponentially. After the 2013 plant expansion to increase power output by 15 percent, the canals began running dangerously high. FPL officials blamed problems on an algae bloom that worsened after the canals were temporarily shut down during the project. But when a summer drought hit in 2014, temperatures spiked. At least twice, when temperatures soared to 102 degrees, the utility was nearly forced to power down reactors. After obtaining permission from nuclear regulators to operate the canals at 104 degrees, the hottest in the nation, FPL officials began plotting a course to fix the canals by pumping in millions of gallons of fresh water from a nearby canal as well as increasing the amount of water drawn from the Floridan aquifer. But the growing saltwater plume triggered regulatory scrutiny. After the county complained, the state ordered a new management plan, called an administrative order, to address problems. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection declined to cite FPL for violating state water laws and instead crafted a plan that critics said gave the utility license to continue to pollute. The plan, hastily approved two days before Christmas, was quickly challenged by county officials, as well as environmentalists and rock miners. The county settled its challenge in October after FPL agreed to a series of actions to clean up the plume that included constructing a barrier made up of extraction wells. The utility also agreed to try to use salty water from the Floridan aquifer, rather than freshwater from the nearby canal intended for Biscayne Bay, or treated wastewater from a nearby county sewer plant. The decree also called for increased monitoring that in the fall gave the first indication the canals had leaked into the bay when monitoring detected elevated levels of ammonia and phosphorus...

Burrage Pond is a property of the Mass. Division or Fisheries and Wildlife obtained and maintained in part from hunting and fishing license revenue. "The Burrage Pond Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is 1625 acres of open water, marsh, Atlantic white cedar and red maple swamps and former cranberry bogs located on the border of Hanson and Halifax. It was purchased in 2002 by the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife from the Northland Cranberry Company. The area is managed for fisheries and wildlife habitats and open space. A management plan to protect, enhance and restore the varied natural habitats on the site is currently being developed The area that is now the Burrage Pond Wildlife Management Area was originally known as the Great Cedar Swamp. The outlet from Monponsett Pond, known as Stump Brook or Herring Brook, was dammed for water power and created an artificial pond called Stump Pond. In this area in 1905, industrialist Albert C. Burrage started digging peat for fuel and later developed cranberry bogs. The area was purchased by the United Cape Cod Cranberry Company from Hanson Cedar Company in 1931. The area was later bought by Cumberland Farms, Inc. who developed some of the wetlands into more cranberry bogs between 1977 and 1990. These actions resulted in an enforcement action by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The current USGS topographic maps and this WMA map still show wetlands in some of the areas that were developed into cranberry bogs. The property was eventually purchased by Northland Cranberry Company and known as Bog 18." http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/habitat/maps/wma/southeastwma/burragepondwma.pdf http://www.baycircuit.org/Map13.pdf http://baystatements.blogspot.com/

CALIBOGUE SOUND, S.C. — The Coast Guard rescued three mariners from a sinking vessel Saturday in the vicinity of Calibogue Sound, S.C. Watchstanders in the Coast Guard Sector Charleston command center received a report from Beaufort County Dispatch stating the 62-foot fishing vessel Christina Leigh was taking on water, at 3 p.m. The three mariners aboard had to place the call via cell phone since their VHF radio was damaged. Sector Charleston personnel put out an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast and launched crewmembers from Coast Guard Station Tybee Island at 3:04 p.m. A crew aboard a rescue helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Savannah was also launched. The helicopter crew arrived on scene and located the vessel at 4 p.m. An initial survey showed the Christina Leigh was listing to the right and was being battered by the surf. The three crewmembers were standing on the bow of the vessel, signaling the helicopter. The helicopter crew directed the 25-foot response boat from Station Tybee to the location of the vessel. All three distressed mariners were transferred onto the Coast Guard boat at approximately 4:06 p.m. None of the three rescued mariners reported any injuries. All three were wearing their life jackets during the incident. Coast Guard crews vacated the scene due to an approaching storm and tornado warning as soon as the three mariners were rescued. The Christina Leigh master reported the vessel has approximately 280 gallons of diesel fuel aboard. Coast Guard marine investigators and pollution investigators have been notified and will attempt to obtain a salvage plan from the owner. A Coast Guard Auxiliary aircraft is scheduled to conduct an aerial assessment of the site of the sinking for potential pollution. Station Tybee personnel are scheduled to transport the marine and pollution investigators to the scene to conduct an inspection at 8:45 a.m., Sunday. For more information contact the Seventh Coast Guard District Public Affairs Detachment North at 305-318-1864.

Leading economic expert Jim Rogers traveled to 150 countries over 150,000 miles in three years - follow his adventures here on FentonReport. In this video Jim and Paige travel to Dakhla in the west Sahara. Copyright Jim Rogers - provided as a special contribution to The Fenton Report. http://www.fentonreport.com Dakhla (Dajla), or ad-Dakhla (formerly Villa Cisneros), is a city in the Morocco-administered Western Sahara with about 67,468 inhabitants. It is about 550 km south of El Aaiún on a narrow peninsula of the Atlantic Coast. It is the capital of the Oued Ed-Dahab-Lagouira region. Dakhla was founded as Villa Cisneros in 1502 by Spanish settlers during the expansion of their Empire. During the colonial period, the Spanish authorities made Dakhla the capital of the province of Río de Oro, one of the two regions of the Spanish Sahara. They built a military fortress and a modern Catholic church, both of which remain points of interest for visitors to the city. A prison camp also existed here during the Spanish Civil War, at which writers such as Pedro García Cabrera were imprisoned. During the 1960s, the Francoist dictatorship also built here one of the three paved airports in Western Sahara (IATA Code: VIL). Between 1975 and 1979, Dakhla was the province capital of the Mauritanian province of Tiris al-Gharbiyya, consisting of its annexed portion of Western Sahara. The main economic activity of the city is fishing. In the area south of Tindouf, Algeria, there is a Sahrawi refugee camp named after Dakhla. http://www.mutualfundcenter.com http://www.atlanticfinancial.com http://www.fentonreport.com/2006/05/22/wealth-management/estate-planning-strategy/wills/140 http://www.fentonreport.com/2006/06/05/economy/this-bull-has-legs/141 http://www.fentonreport.com/2006/06/12/wealth-management/insurance-planning-life-health/life-insurance-beneficiaries/142

This modest bungalow sits on a quiet tree-lined street in Thunderbolt, Georgia, a picturesque fishing village just a few miles from downtown Savannah. The small house has been renovated by the owner and turned into a vacation rental. The public spaces are arranged along the left side, with the living room in front, the dining space in the middle and the kitchen at the back. The other side of the house has two bedrooms with a spacious bathroom in between. The exact size is unknown but we estimate it to be a comfortable 800 to 900 ft2 (74 to 84 m2). The bungalow is now air conditioned, but originally the wraparound porch would have been the main living area during hot, humid weather. The porch can be accessed from both the living and dining rooms, and is wide enough to place groupings of furniture while leaving space for people to pass. Since these photos were taken, the owner has also added a screened porch off the back bedroom. The large backyard is shaded by a 250-year-old oak tree dripping with Spanish Moss. The new screened porch likely improves access to the backyard as there previously was no back door at all, however it would be nice to have a door from the kitchen as well. The bathroom is very big and even has space for a large armoire. Given the size, the room was likely used for something else before being turned into a bathroom. The laundry facilities are located in the kitchen, with the machines concealed behind a curtain in a built-in niche. To rent this bungalow, please visit Airbnb. Enjoy the photo tour!

Travessia do Drake, Viagem de Ushuaia à Antártica em um catamaran sem cabine em 2003. The Drake Crossing On the 7th of February 2003 after an 82-hour sailing marathon Brazilian Roberto Pandiani and South African Duncan Ross became the first sailors to cross the Drakes Passage aboard an open 21-foot catamaran called 'Satellite'. The Drake's Passage infamous for its shipwrecks, huge quadrangular waves, unpredictable storms, icebergs and freezing temperatures presented a formidable challenge to the two sailors. Stretching from Cape Horn to The Antarctic Peninsula, it represents 500 miles of the most respected and feared waters in the world. Meticulous planning and precise project management ensured a safe and successful crossing. The vessel choice was a custom built Catamaran based on the HOBIE 21 hull shape; construction and engineering of which was carried out by Barracuda Technologies, Rio de Janeiro. Kevlar and Carbon Fibers surrounding a 12mm Divinycell PVC Foam core were infused with epoxy, producing a bulletproof platform. Further modifications included - foam filled "crash boxes" and a total of 5 watertight compartments in each hull. A powerful rig including a 24m2 spinnaker and a 9.6-meter tall mast complemented the 3-meter beam to produce a fast and stable vessel. Two narrow ultra light wings constructed in Carbon further increased the beam and provided a place to rest and store essential safety equipment which included Personal EPIRBS, Satellite phones, a Rescue Pod and a Inmarsat C Satellite tracking system. The expedition started in the most southern city of South America, Ushuaia, Argentina. The first leg sailed westwards down the Beagle Canal and across Nassau Bay to reach a small cove called "Calheta Martial" only a few miles from Cape Horn. From here, choosing what Roberto called "a perfect weather window", the duo set off for Deception Island 500 miles away. The Drake Passage served up a mixture of conditions ranging from dead calm to 25 knots with seas running at up to 5m. Seasickness, freezing air and water temperatures left the sailors exhausted to point of experiencing mild hallucinations as the reached the Peninsula in the early hours of the morning on the 8th February. Elated but exhausted Duncan commented ´it was like scooting across the upturned belly of an sleeping monster -- the weather was excellent, we are very happy - it could have been so much worse! On the next leg to the Melchior Archipelago 120 miles away, the monster awoke and left the duo on the limit of survival. The weather forecasted 4 to 8 knots, but by the end of the day they were down to 3 reefs in the mainsail in 37 knots of wind. Rolling white water on the tops of a long-range swell coming in from the west met a wind generated swell from the NE to produce an unenviable sea condition. A near collision with a whale, snow, mist and the constant threat of floating ice made this day one to be remembered. Duncan's Logbook entry on 13 February entitled "Eyes Wide Shut" sums it up, "I could never have imagined, guessed or dreamed about the sheer splendor of this place. It is a labyrinth of Islands, bergs and glaciers. My body aches and my hands are numb but my heart is filled with emotion. We have arrived in the frozen continent on a small catamaran -- now we are in Antarctica" After reaching the Melchior Archipelago 'Satellite' and her support vessel Kotic explored the Gerlaiche Strait and surrounding region, before returning to Ushuaia. Total round trip time for the expedition was 42 days.

The size is half of one’s palm and its body is translucent. But its body appears brownish when being fed or experiencing emotions. The color of the body even changes to accommodate its surroundings. Taiwan pioneers the world in developing technology that allows massive breeding of oval squid.Huang Ting-shihFisheries Research InstituteWe are able to breed oval squid in an artificial environment with them laying their eggs. As the breeding continues, we can transfer this technology to fish farms. Massive fishing of cuttlefish and oval squid has led to reduced catch and higher pricesHuang Ting-shihFisheries Research InstituteLocal breeding technology is now able to massively reproduce cuttlefish and oval squid like grouper. This way it’s easier for people to access them and the prices will be cheaper too.The breakthrough in fish farming technology could reduce market prices for oval squid and cuttlefish and allow them to be kept as aquarium pets.

Due to IUU fishing activities within its distant water fishery, Taiwan received a yellow card warning from EU and is required for prompt improvement, or the EU may impose economic sanction. This video includes evidence of illegal fishing activities which were collected through about 3 month field investigation, from violation of the regulation that shark fin should be naturally attached to, fishing laundry, and illegal transshipment. It shows that due to the poor management of Taiwan government, illegal fishing cases conducted by Taiwan vessels have been widely covered by international media. Now it is time to confront the problem, and Taiwan government should take action to properly manage its distant water fishery.
