Presented by Kale Gullett, Fisheries Biologist, USDA NRCS East National Technology Support Center Improving stream habitat is often a goal of landowners and NRCS conservation partners. Many factors affect habitat quality and quantity, and most are directly related to land use history, watershed hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, and contemporary land management practices. Since habitat is biological reliance on physical stream features, a key aspect of managing stream habitat is a requisite understanding of the watershed context within which a stream has evolved and the range of historic and contemporary factors that govern channel and floodplain condition. This webinar provides an overview of the physical basis of stream habitat, elements of fluvial geomorphology as related to habitat and stream condition, methods and approaches to characterize stream condition and health, and presents a framework within which conservation planners can identify past influences on stream health for the development of management options. Field and research examples from the mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Pacific Northwest are provided to illustrate concepts.
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

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.

I would like to ask you the same series of questions that i previously did during that conversation, without the "fear" that i may be recording the conversation. It has come to my attention, in my opinion, that the method we use to harvest scallops is somewhat brutal as we are killing a great number of them during our fishing operations, are you aware of the damage that i speak of, namely crushed broken scallops that then die off to start rotting amongst the rest of the living scallop population?.Are you aware that fishermen fear the disease caused by the die off as it starts to kill other scallops in the vicinity, causing a mass die off of the bed, due to the rotting corpses of there kinship who have been crushed by our fishing operations? I also would like to know, for the record, if you are aware of a terrible smell, like decaying flesh, emanating from such grounds that are being harvested and sold to the public Subject: RE: att.

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.

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

Kaş-Kekova, located in the southern part of Turkey, is one of the first places that comes to mind for divers in Mediterranean. Along with its cultural heritage, Kaş-Kekova is an important spot in terms of marine biodiversity. Over the past years, its rich biodiversity values are under threat due to human activities such as illegal amateur fishing, anchoring and excessive diving. Kaş-Kekova Marine Protected Areas (MPA) Project, undertaken between 2009-2012, aims the preparation and application of the marine management plan which has been completed with the participation of the stakeholders in Kaş and Kekova. Local fisheries, diving clubs, tour boats were involved in the decisions taken at all stages in order to form the common grounds to protect Kaş and Kekova's natural assets and ensure sustainable use of natural resources. Kaş-Kekova MPA Project has been carried out under the MedPAN South Project, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, General Directorate for Protection of Natural Assets and WWF Mediterranean Office. This documentary demonstrates the 4-year process of Kaş-Kekova MPA Project with footages taken from stakeholders and WWF Turkey & WWF Mediterranean project team. RID 3618

Could right whales be driven to extinction by a new order from the Obama Administration? Environmentalists say the administration may have sold out the species to oil company interests. Only 500 of the highly-intelligent, social mammals are known to exist in the world. They make seasonal migrations up and down the east coast of the United States. Oil companies want to explore areas offshore for oil. Many of these grounds have been drilled before, but industry officials say new technology could find reserves in areas once believed to be dry. A new sonic gun will create massive shock waves that will travel through the water, and through the sea bed. These guns will fire every ten seconds, 24 hours a day, for over a year. Suzie Hodges of Oceana said "It's disruptive, destructive, and directly threatens the survival of marine creatures like dolphins, whales, and turtles." (1) Whales, dolphins and other marine animals depend on sound for navigation and communication. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management estimates over 138,000 marine mammals could be injured or killed by the order. Sonic guns are powerful enough to kill eggs or larvae in areas they are used. They can also cause temporary or permanent hearing loss in whales and dolphins. Exploration was due to begin in 2011, but the plan was delayed after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. Environmentalists were given until 2017 before sonic guns would be put into operation. The Interior Department, under President Obama, has recommended the use of the guns by oil producers now. The blasts could endanger not just the marine mammals, but hundreds of thousands of jobs along the coast, as well. Jacqueline Savitz of Oceana said, "By failing to consider relevant science, the Obama administration's decision could be a death sentence for many marine mammals, needlessly turning the Atlantic Ocean into a blast zone. If seismic airguns are allowed in the Atlantic, it will jeopardize wildlife as well as commercial and recreational fisheries, tourism and coastal recreation -- putting more than 730,000 jobs in the blast zone at risk." (2) Petroleum company executives are praising the decision. With this decision from the Obama Administration, the fate of the right whale is now in the hands of the oil corporations. #SR Download your free Next News "Heroes & Villains" Poster here: http://nextnewsnetwork.com/the-2013-heroes-villains-posters Donate USD: http://nnn.is/donate-dollars Donate BTC: http://nnn.is/donate-bitcoin LIVE: http://NextNewsNetwork.com Facebook: http://Facebook.com/NextNewsNet Twitter: http://Twitter.com/NextNewsNet Sub: http://NNN.is/the_new_media Meet the Next News Team: http://youtu.be/2QnNKwQ2WkY Hashtag: #N3 About: Next News Network's World News program airs daily at 6pm and 11pm Eastern on Comcast, DirecTV and Over-the-Air and Online at http://NNN.is/on- World News is available to 6 million viewers from South Beach to Sebastian, Florida and to 2 million viewers in Boston, Massachusetts via . broadcasts on RF channel 44 (virtual channel 9) from Palm City and is carried on cable TV channels 44 (SD) and 1044 (HD) by AT&T, on cable channels 17 (SD) and 438 (HD) in West Palm Beach by Comcast, on satellite channel 44 (SD) in West Palm Beach by DIRECTV, and on -Boston which broadcasts on RF channel 38 (virtual channel 6) from the Government Center district in downtown Boston.

Dr. John P. Holdren, who served as President Obama’s Science Advisor and the Director of the White Office of Science and Technology Policy through both Obama terms, was responsible for interpreting, for the President, the state of climate-change science and its implications for policy. The analyses he provided played a major role in shaping the Administration’s climate-change policy, including the President’s June 2013 Climate Action Plan and the U.S. stance in the December 2015 negotiation of the Paris accord. In this talk, he updates his assessment of what the science is telling us about the urgency of increased ambition in addressing the climate-change challenge and will reflect on the gulf between Obama’s stance on this issue and Trump’s.

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.

Many thanks to Scuba Nation for sharing their underwater and aerial video! The Ana Cecilia cargo ship, once used in both an attempt to smuggle $10 million worth of cocaine on the Miami River and as the first ship to carry cargo from Miami to Cuba in 2012 after 50 years of embargo, now has a new destiny underwater off the coast of The Palm Beaches as an artificial reef. The Ana Cecilia is the 45th ship to be scuttled in Palm Beach County (PBC) in recent decades, drawing divers away from natural reefs, ensuring their sustainability. The Palm Beaches are home to 151 artificial reefs, including the Ana Cecilia, which provide a fascinating experience for divers. Plaques have been affixed to the ship, with sentiments honoring local community members Perry J. Cohen, Austin Stephanos, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Fernandez Jones, Jaden Jones and Willis Bell, who are missing or lost at sea. The ship was sunk on July 13, 2016, 1.25 miles off the Lake Worth Inlet in 85 feet of water (coordinates: 26 47.118/-80 00.960), where it is in the natural process of becoming an additional marine habitat as part of the artificial reef system managed by the Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management (ERM). Divers are welcome to explore this new underwater gem, which is expected to attract marine life within 48 hours after the sinking. The wealth of marine biodiversity is a unique attribute to The Palm Beaches’ coast, because of the County’s close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean’s Gulf Stream – considered an oceanic conveyor belt of warm water and artery for its natural residents to migrate, such as sea-turtles, tropical fish, sailfish, goliath grouper, dolphins and more. The Ana Cecilia is a 170-foot Halter Marine general cargo ship built in 1972. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the lead investigative agency in the Department of Homeland Security responsible for conducting narcotic smuggling investigations in the maritime environment, led an investigation targeting the importation of narcotics in coastal freighters into the United States via the Miami River. As a result of findings, HSI requested assistance from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for the extensive search of the motor vessel Ana Cecilia. In September 2015, CBP searched the vessel and found 386 bricks of cocaine with a street value of more than $10 million, which led to the seizure of the cargo ship. CBP administratively forfeited the ship in January 2016. The Treasury Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture approved the transfer of the vessel to Palm Beach County in support of the Artificial Reef Strategic Plan in March 2016. After approval by the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, the ship was transferred to county ownership in May 2016. The captain and owner of the Ana Cecilia, Ernso Borgella, was indicted and pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and was sentenced to nine years in prison. “The Ana Cecilia will soon become a diver’s dream, bustling with underwater activity as she is colonized by algae, sponges, and corals to support a diverse community of colorful marine life including Goliath Grouper, sea turtles, thorny oysters, and green moray eels,” explained Palm Beach County Environmental Resources Management Division Director Julie O. Bishop. “Divers come from all over the world to experience the unparalleled reefs of The Palm Beaches, whether natural or artificial,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO for Discover The Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing corporation for Palm Beach County. “Our area is geographically the closest land mass to the Gulf Stream in North America, and that magical current allows divers to see here a wide diversity of abundant marine life.” “Our clear waters and fascinating marine biodiversity are just some of the reasons why divers choose to visit this destination,” continued Pesquera. “The Ana Cecilia’s unique history, as well as its honorable tribute to beloved community members who are missing or lost at sea, make it a unique addition to our artificial reef system.”
