  • Fishing's decline looms; will fish eaters notice?

    ap ^ | Feb 18, 2013 | JAY LINDSAY
    In May, New England's fishermen will again see a cut to the number of fish they can catch, this time so deeply that the historic industry's existence is threatened from Rhode Island to Maine. But as hard as the cuts are likely to hit fishing communities, local seafood eaters may not notice at all. In the region's markets, grocery stores and restaurants, imported fish dominate, and the cuts make that less likely to change. The cuts will shrink the catch limit 77 percent for cod in the Gulf of Maine and 61 percent for cod in Georges Bank, off southeastern...

    Karl Rove appeared on the Scott Hennen Show this afternoon and got asked a question by a listener about the Delaware Senate race and Christine O’Donnell’s claims that he conspired with Mike Castle to undermine her campaign. O’Donnell also claimed that Rove was trying to avoid her. Rove’s response? He said that O’Donnell wasn’t telling the truth. He said that he didn’t endorse Castle, that he actually endorsed O’Donnell, and that he hasn’t been trying to endorse her. Though, Rove also admits that when asked he said that O’Donnell didn’t give Republicans their best chance to win the Senate race...

    Christine O’Donnell, who, judging by the polls, is not long for this political world, did an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network in which she reflected on God (“God is the reason that I’m running”), being a conservative woman (“they wouldn’t do the things that they’re doing if I weren’t a woman”), and her time on the cable TV circuit circa the late nineties. It’s hard to say at this point whether Bill Maher’s relentless mocking of Christine O’Donnell has helped or hurt her.

    If months of fighting uphill have worn on Christine O’Donnell, it doesn’t show: the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate recently waded into a crowd of supporters at Fisherman’s Wharf in Lewes all smiles, bright and effervescent. The people waiting for her are more than supporters – they’re fans, nearly every one clad in the powder-blue campaign T-shirt. They lean in close when they talk, speaking in hushed, reverent tones. One presents a copy of Peter Lillback’s “George Washington’s Sacred Fire,” a 1,200-page doorstop about Washington’s Christian faith. O’Donnell is a political outsider, she said, and her supporters are outsiders, too,...

The interview was conducted by CBN's The Brody File on Friday at Wesley College in Dover, Delaware and is posted on CBN's website.

That’s essentially the choice in the Castle-O’Donnell race, since O’Donnell would have a very hard time winning in the general election (even Castle will not necessarily have a cakewalk — Sean Trende points out that his lead over the Democrat Chris Coons does not look impregnable in such a Democratic state).

Maybe that is why Mike Castle is running from Christine O’Donnell. He is afraid to have to answer questions about this. The man will not debate her to save his life.

    FAIRBANKS -- Just when it looked like Sam Fleury of Fairbanks had hauled in his first 200-pound halibut, the fish went on a crash diet. As the giant flatfish was being weighed and photographed on the dock in Valdez for the local halibut derby, it regurgitated a half-eaten, 10-pound lingcod. While the halibut discharge cost Fleury a spot in the 200-Pound Club, it didn't stop him from moving into third place in the derby. Fleury fished Sunday with Dave Wiley of Orion Charters and caught a halibut that looked like it might challenge for the lead in the derby. Back...

    Canada Closes Newfoundland Cod FisheriesST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland, Canada, April 28, 2003 (ENS) - The government of Canada has announced the closure of three cod stocks in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and northeast of Newfoundland and Labrador.

In 2000, these three cod stocks were worth about C$23 million in landed value, compared to about C$1.8 billion for the entire Atlantic fishery. The landed value of these stocks has been steadily decreasing for...

    EU Fishing Subsidies Slammed in View of Cod Crisis BRUSSELS, Belgium, November 28, 2002 (ENS) - European Union governments have been accused of offering a patchwork of environmentally damaging fishing subsidies, as fisheries ministers gather in Brussels to discuss stocks in crisis and system reforms. Support for new or modernized fishing vessels still outstrips that for reducing fishing effort, and subsidies vary enormously between countries, the conservation organization WWF warned Tuesday.

Cod populations from the waters off western Norway to the Atlantic shores of Scotland are now so depleted that "all fisheries in this area that target cod should be closed," scientists from the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES) warned Friday in their latest six month report. The chance of "a collapse must...
