  1. Last week
  2. Looks like the Right Whale population is in serious danger: This is a big thing for the Maine Lobstermen. Not sure how they're going to meet in the middle on this.
  3. Any of you in Norton Sound and have an idea how things changed so much from the last three years? Sign of things to come? Or just a weird year?
  4. The Guardian takes a good look at whether there's a future for cod fishing in New England. Their answer?
  5. Here's a good attempt by the Bangor Daily News to explain what's going with this Executive Order: If anyone can figure out exactly what's happening, lemme know.
  6. Earlier
  7. This is pretty heart-breaking. More than $22k has already been raised in a GoFundMe if you'd like to help their family.
  8. I saw this photo and just thought "well, that's a photo you never would have seen in 2019." Post pics here of stuff that you could only see in 2020: Source is the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
  9. Great video from local paper Village Soup here: Never disappoints.
  10. As we're seeing all over the country, Covid is playing havoc with Bella Coola and the opening of the gill net Chinook salmon commercial fishery. Looks like there's supposed to be an update tomorrow:
  11. GreenTech Media reports today that Dominion Energy has both of the turbines in place for its Coastal Virginia pilot project and is ready to start generating electricity: How successful this project is may have a big effect on what happens next in offshore wind.
  12. The new season fired up yesterday - who takes it? Lots of talent out there this season.
  13. Here's an example of one side of the reaction: Here's an example of the other side:
  14. Here in Maine, this is getting a mixed reaction, as many are noting that Trump created the tariffs he's now working to provide a fix for, but it's still likely going to mean money in Mainers' pockets. The lobster people could sure use the help, so no looking a gift horse in the mouth, I guess.
  15. Would love to hear how much of this story on fishermen's superstitions actually rings true. Anyone still scared of bananas?
  16. Pretty cool project underway to upcycle nets into Grundens gear: Of course, we'll see how the new line actually performs...
  17. Annnnnnd here comes the lawsuits: https://www.pressherald.com/2020/06/17/environmental-groups-sue-trump-for-opening-marine-monument-to-fishing/
  18. Gotta feel for the guys in San Francisco who just lost just about all the gear they had: That's some real insult-to-injury. Awful.
  19. The big news during President Trump's visit to Maine last week: As you might expect, there were some ... opposing voices: Will this be a bounty for crabbers and lobstermen? Anybody headed there any time soon? You think it actually ever opens for business?
  20. Hey new National Fishermen forum members: You don't have to tell us who you are (anonymous handles are fine!), but maybe tell us how you ARE. - What's your fishery? - How long you been on the water? - You from a big fishing family? - Anything in particular you're interested in chatting about? I'm the moderator here, helping National Fisherman keep things above board and make sure this place doesn't get too boring and stale. So, feel free to help me out with ideas for things we should include here. Also, let me know if you're interested in being a moderator at all - as this place grows, we'll need some leaders who can help shape and inform the way we talk about stuff here. We don't want it to be lame, but also not, like, awful. Thanks for being here!
