    CALAIS, France (AP) — French fishing crews blocked French ports and ferry traffic across the English Channel on Friday to disrupt the flow of goods to the U.K., in a dispute over post-Brexit fishing licenses. It’s the latest tension point between the neighboring countries, who are also trading blame for not doing enough to prevent the deaths of at least 27 migrants whose boat sank Wednesday off Calais, in the choppy waters of the world’s busiest shipping route. French fishermen are angry at the British government for not granting more licenses to fish in U.K. waters — and angry at their own government for not doing more to defend them. The fishing industry is economically tiny but symbolically important for both Britain and France. Friday’s blockades are “a warning shot,” Olivier Lepretre, president of the regional fishing committee, told reporters in Calais. “The British have access to the European market, while we do not have access to British waters. This is not normal, the British govt must respect the agreement.” Fishing crews blocked access to the port of Saint-Malo from...
    CALAIS, France (AP) — French fishing crews are threatening to block French ports and traffic under the English Channel on Friday to disrupt the flow of goods to the U.K., in a dispute over post-Brexit fishing licenses.

    (CNN)French fishermen have said they will block access to the Eurotunnel and English Channel ports in northern France on Friday in protest over post-Brexit fishing rights.A post on Thursday from a fishermen's group on Facebook said they would block ferries in Saint-Malo, Calais and Ouistreham "to denounce the conditions of the Brexit deal and its consequences on fishermen."The head of a fishermen's association told CNN that a protest would start at 1 p.m. local time in Ouistreham and that 15 boats would block the port in the area. He said other groups would be blocking two other areas.The fishermen said they were sending "a warning" to demand the rapid granting by the UK of post-Brexit fishing licenses. Fishing boats leave the harbor of Calais on January 25, 2018, to take part in a blockade to protest against electric pulse fishing practiced by fishermen from the Netherlands."We don't want handouts, we just want our licenses back.

    MARIN COUNTY (AP) — Three fishermen were rescued after their boat capsized off Tomales Bay, north of San Francisco, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The boat began taking on water before capsizing Monday about a half-mile off the coast, the Coast Guard said in a news release.

    PARIS (AP) — France’s minister of the sea vowed Sunday to “continue the fight” in the country’s dispute with Britain over fishing rights. Minister Annick Girardin met with fishermen in northern France on Sunday. “We fight every day for these ships, for these licenses, and we will not give up,” she told reporters, criticizing the British interpretation of post-Brexit rules over fishing rights as “inadmissible.” Fishing is a tiny industry economically, but one that looms large symbolically for both Britain and France, which have long and cherished maritime traditions. The U.K. licenses are at the center of the dispute following Britain’s split with the European Union earlier this year. Before Brexit, French fishermen could fish deep inside British waters. Now they need to be granted a special license from the British government or the self-governing British Crown dependencies of Jersey and Guernsey to fish in certain areas. Those authorities have already granted 961 fishing licenses to French boats, according to French authorities, but France wants about 150 more licenses. Girardin said France set a deadline for the...
    KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan has freed 20 Indian fishermen who spent four years in prison in the port city of Karachi for violating the country’s territorial waters, an official said Sunday. Arshad Shah, a prison official, said the group left the Karachi central prison and boarded a bus for the eastern city of Lahore. Shah said they would be handed over to Indian authorities at Wahgah border crossing. Shah said 588 more inmates were in the prison awaiting completion of legal formalities. Both India and Pakistan periodically arrest each other’s fishermen for allegedly crossing the water frontiers in search of better catch. But both sides every year release some inmates after authorities negotiate and fulfill legal formalities. The two nuclear armed south Asian neighbors, who gained independence from British colonial rule in 1947, are archrivals mainly because of disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir. The region is divided between them but both claim it in its entirety. The two sides have strained relations since India unilaterally abolished the autonomous status of its part of Kashmir in August 2019....

    Anglers in the New York Harbor reeled in massive bluefin tuna in recent months, according to new reports.  Bluefin Tuna are the largest fish of the tuna species, and they can reach sizes of up to 13 feet and 2,000 pounds, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The fish are found in the western Atlantic, from Newfoundland to the Gulf of Mexico. The New York Post reported that many anglers in the New York City area have been reeling in a significant number of the large trophy fish that weigh between 200 and 600 pounds, and fishermen have been able to catch them far closer to shore than in previous years.  NBC New York reported that the significant increase in huge bluefin tuna has led more anglers to travel to the area in hopes of catching one, with some fishermen saying they hope the large fish will return next season as well.
    Boris Johnson today told Emmanuel Macron he has 'bigger fish to fry' ahead of the G20 summit as the Channel fisheries row continues to intensify.  The PM and French President have come face-to-face in Rome for a group photo of world leaders while the bitter dispute risks escalating even further. In a round of broadcast interviews this morning, Mr Johnson warned the UK could trigger legal repercussions in the post-Brexit trade agreement as soon as next week.  But the chief of Calais port insisted this morning that Britain faces 'disaster' if Mr Macron follows through on a threat to block British trawlers from French ports.     In the latest stoking of the row, French counterparts have claimed the British trawler-men arrested for allegedly fishing in French waters without a licence are ‘pirates’ who ‘deserve everything they get’ for endangering the fish-stock. Emmanuel Montard criticised the UK scallop boats for jeopardising the livelihoods of future generations by over-fishing in the waters on the Normandy coast. The 54-year-old trawler-man is one of dozens of residents of picturesque Port en Bessin, where family...
    Four weeks after an oil spill washed blobs of crude onto Southern California's coast, surfers have returned to the waves and people play in the surf.  But fishermen still can't drop lines in the same waters.  California has prohibited fishing in an area that ranges about 6 to 12 miles off the shores of Orange County since an undersea pipeline leaked at least about 25,000 gallons of crude oil into the Pacific Ocean.  Scott Breneman, owner of West Caught Fish, slices fish for a customer at a market in Newport Beach, California on Wednesday.

    The fishermen were diving at night, so could not be sure at first what they had found in the mud of the River Musi. But as the dirt was washed away and the sun rose, the treasure's breathtaking nature must have become clear: gold and jewels from what was once the richest and most powerful empire in South East Asia. '[It's] the kind of thing that you might read about in Sinbad The Sailor and think it was made up. It's actually real,' says Dr Sean Kingsley, a British marine archaeologist whose online magazine, Wreckwatch has published a study of the finds: 'From the shallows have surfaced glittering gold and jewels befitting this richest of kingdoms.' Srivijaya is probably the greatest empire you've never heard of: known as the Island of Gold, the floating kingdom ruled Indonesia (and much of South East Asia) for more than 600 years. In the 12th century, it vanished without trace, like the fictitious island of Atlantis, said by the Greek writer Plato to have been submerged by the Atlantic Ocean. Srivijaya's treasures, even its...

    Small, glassy waves rolled up on shore Saturday morning, one week after an oil spill sent black tar clumps onto the sand here in Huntington Beach, raising fears of long-term damage to fragile ecosystems in the area and cutting off ocean access to residents, visitors and fishermen. But that didn’t stop a dozen or more surfers in dark wetsuits from running into the water for a morning session. They caught a few good waves before a lifeguard blared down from a blue tower. “Attention, surfers. Attention, surfers,” a voice bellowed through a bullhorn. “The water is currently closed due to hazardous conditions.” Huntington Beach resident Brett Simpson, 39, and Long Beach resident Ralph Rodriguez, 62, lugged their boards out of the water and across the sand, where they convened near the shower by the parking lot. “Water’s cleaner than tap water,” said Rodriguez. “There’s no oil out there. If there was oil out there I would have been the first one out of the water. I’m old, man.” One week since the public learned about the oil spill — whose...
    JOHNSTOWN, Colo. (CBS4)– Colorado Parks and Wildlife needs help clearing out the fish population in the Johnstown Reservoir in northern Colorado. Crews must clear out the fish before they can drain the water from the reservoir. (credit: CBS) They need all the fish removed by Nov. 1. So until then, there are no restrictions on fish size, species or limit on how many you can catch. (credit: CBS) The only restrictions are the times of day.

    FRENCH fishermen have vowed to blockade Calais and cut off Christmas supplies to Britain within a fortnight in a row over access to our waters. They're threatening to cause shipping chaos in the run up to the festive period in an attempt to blackmail Boris Johnson over licences. 2French fishermen are threatening to blockade Calais within two weeksCredit: AP 2They could also attempt to block the Channel Tunnel in a row over licencesCredit: Getty Skippers in the major port of Boulogne say they'll block lorries and trains heading across the Channel unless they're allowed back into UK seas.

    Over the weekend, spiny lobster farmers in Southern California began setting traps for the start of their season. On Sunday, they were suddenly prohibited from entering a swath of the Orange County coastline, and on Tuesday, the banned area was extended even farther — without word on how long fishing will remain off-limits. Their income from an entire season might have been contaminated in one of the largest oil spills in the state’s recent history. A 17.7-mile oil pipeline off Huntington Beach has hemorrhaged at least 146,000 gallons into the Pacific since the leak began, possibly Friday, immediately threatening wildlife from sea to shore — and potentially contaminating the fishing grounds and aquafarms that feed Californians and keep hundreds of commercial fishermen employed. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has placed a temporary ban on commercial and recreational fishing in an area that stretches about 20 miles from Sunset Beach south to San Clemente and extends six miles out to sea. State officials, fishermen and chefs are scrambling to warn consumers of potential dangers and, in some...
    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The death toll from Cyclone Shaheen rose to five Monday while other fishermen from Iran remained missing as the storm moved further inland into Oman and weakened. Authorities in Oman said they found the body of a man who disappeared when floodwaters swept him away from his vehicle. On Sunday as the storm made landfall, they said a child similarly drowned and two foreigners from Asia died in a landslide. In Iran, state television said rescuers found the body of one of five fishermen who went missing off Pasabandar, a fishing village near the Islamic Republic’s border with Pakistan. Earlier on Sunday, Iranian deputy parliament speaker Ali Nikzad said he feared as many as six fishermen had been killed because of the cyclone. India’s Meteorological Department, the top forecasters for cyclones that sweep across the Indian Ocean, said winds from Shaheen now gust up to 90 kph (55 mph) and would continue to weaken. It predicted the storm would weaken into a tropical depression in the coming hours. Shaheen made landfall with...
    FRANCE has threatened to drag the EU into a trade war with Britain in a rage over post-Brexit fishing rights. Paris complained its trawler men are being held "hostage" after Jersey refused to grant licences to 75 vessels. 2French fishermen blockaded Jersey in May in a row over access to watersCredit: AFP 2The Channel Island turned down a third of applications from French vessels for licencesCredit: AFP The tiny Channel Island is now bracing itself for a fresh blockade from furious French skippers. Navy gunboats have been put on high alert in case they need to be sent back in to repel another armada.   Emmanuel Macron's spokesman slammed the "totally unacceptable" decision and said Paris will "push" Brussels to take action. But eurocrats baulked at the threat of a tit-for-tat tariff war and pledged to reopen talks with Downing St on a deal. Jersey rejected a third of applications from French boats and ordered them to leave its waters within 30 days.

    After some of Paris’s demands were rejected, “French fishing should not be taken hostage by the British,” said Maritime Minister Annie Girardin.

On Tuesday, September 28, France publicly regretted London’s announcement of 12 new licenses for French fishermen to access British territorial waters. This figure is far from the demands of Paris, which requires an additional 87. “British new refusal to implement the terms of the Brexit agreement, despite working together”, Announced by the Minister of the Sea Annik Girard. “I have only one word of caution: get firm licenses for our fishermen as provided in the contract.

    Conflict continues between France and England over post-Brexit fishing. France is still waiting for the tricolor flag flying boats 6 to 12 miles off the British coast to respond to requests for Jersey, 168 Guernsey and 168 final approvals. Despite the satisfying gesture, Jersey Autonomous Government, An island located between France and Great Britain, announced on Friday that it would authorize EU boats and renew temporary licenses for those struggling to gather the necessary supporting documents. An action far removed from calming the spirits. Throughout the conditions for the UK’s exit from the EU, the access of European fishermen to UK waters was a matter of tension. Already in early May, dozens of boats Norman and Breton fishermen To defend their right to fish in this sea in the port of Saint-Helier in Jersey, London sent two patrol boats for a few hours. “In this game, it will end badly” This drastic footing led to the extension of the deadline without changing the foundations: European navies would have to give up 25% of their holdings in the British Sea by...
    We watch these pro bass fishermen on TV as they hook bass on nearly every cast, and we wonder why we can’t do that. They might weigh in 40 or 50 pounds of bass during a three-day tournament. We’re using the same types of lures and techniques, but we must cast many, many times before we luck into a nice bass. Why is this so? Are we just very inadequate at the sport? It’s true that they are excellent fishermen. They get a lot more practice than we do. But it’s also true that they’re fishing there, and we’re fishing here. They’re most often fishing some of the best bass-filled Lakes in the country, lakes where nice bass fight each other to gobble that plastic or rubber lure swimming by. Lakes in this part of the country, bordered by wooded hillsides, have few nutrients washing into them, nutrients that make a big difference in production and feeding conditions for bass. Nutrient-rich lakes produce more cover, more bait fish, bass that produce well, and live to eat well and become bigger...
    Maine's congressional delegation is urging the federal government not to approve new rules that would negatively impact the state's commercial fishing industry as they finalize protections for endangered whales. In a letter to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, the lawmakers wrote that they have a number of concerns about the National Marine Fisheries Service's proposed regulations and the plan's "ability to meaningfully protect whales and its impact on those who depend on fishing, especially lobstering, for their livelihoods." The lawmakers, which included Sens. Angus King, I-Maine, and Susan Collins, R-Maine, asked regulators to illuminate several "hasty, late-breaking changes" to the final whale protection rules. "These changes … add significant costs to the industry without corresponding gains in conservation and seriously underline conservation partnerships at state and local levels," they wrote. A major concern for the lawmakers is an addition to the final rules that would require lobstermen to mark their traps based on the locations of where they set them. The proposed rules are meant to determine whose gear might have caused an entanglement. But the lawmakers said it will force...
    MONTEREY — Unfortunately, tradition will have to wait one more year. The board of directors of the annual Festa Italia Fisherman’s Festival honoring the local fishermen of Monterey voted Saturday morning to cancel the 88th edition of their event, which was set for Sept. 10-12 at Custom House Plaza, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases caused by the delta variant. “It was really a difficult decision,” said Joe Cardinalli, vice president of the Festa Italia Foundation. “Of course, we canceled last year and we’ve been working on it, we work on it all year-round.” Cardinalli said officials had been meeting once a week for the past six weeks to plan the event and this was their drop-dead date to keep moving ahead or pull back. “Because we are stewards of the traditions, stewards of the community, we felt that for the health and safety of our volunteers and the community that this was a decision we had to make,” he said. “No one really wanted to make it, but it was something that had to be done. We’re a...

    Fishermen recently found a surprising animal swimming half a mile out at sea.  Mark Bowditch was on a mackerel fishing charter out at sea when he spotted something moving in the water. The object was a young red doe that was struggling to keep her head above the waterline. The crew got to work, rescuing the poor animal. The deer was completely exhausted by the time she had been pulled up onto the boat. Mark Bowditch said, “Initially, I just thought it was a basking shark swimming slowly across the surface. Then when I got a little bit closer, and it turned, I saw it had two ears!” Bowditch brought the boat closer so that he and his guest could pull the deer to safety. They did so by creating a lasso with their mackerel lines. After rescuing the deer and heading back to shore, Bowditch got into contact with harbor officials. Mark Bowditch’s children named the deer Bambi, and they released her near Nothe Gardens. Their release didn’t go as planned, as the deer seemed reluctant...
    . videos Culture rescues Colombia’s Rio Grande from a past of violence Honda (Colombia), Aug 18 (.) .- At six in the morning the fishermen of Honda, in the center of Colombia, go out to look for their livelihood on the banks of the Magdalena river, the main river in the country, a task with the who claim this channel, muddied by the armed conflict, as a river of life and hope. In the Rio Grande de la Magdalena, which crosses the country from south to north, the bodies, whole and dismembered, of more than 300 victims of forced disappearance have floated, and their serpentine figure follows the trail of the bloodiest periods of violence In colombia.

In the river they work all year round, by vocation and by necessity, but the best season is that...
    In the last hours a video that was shared on TikTok has gone viral, which has caused outrage among several users of social networks given the act of animal cruelty that they came to commit. The video shows 2 fishermen, Wyatt Dallison and Cody Scott, originally from West Virginia, who recorded the exact moment a shark was pulled out of the water on a Florida beach to use the animal to carry out a trivial act. In the images, one of the fishermen is seen holding the shark by the tail with one hand, while the other holds its jaw so that it remains open and thus open a can of beer. To make it, They bring the beer can close and hit it with the shark’s teeth. Some believe that he tried to stick it in the teeth of the marine predator so that he could drink the beer, but in reality he wanted to open the can and then drink the contents as quickly as possible. It all happens with laughter as the shark struggles to free...
    A group of Florida fishermen have been slammed after posting a video of themselves using a live shark's teeth as a beer can opener.   Hunters Wyatt Dallison and Cody Scott were fishing with some friends on the Florida coast when they caught the shark - believed to be a sand tiger shark.  Disturbing footage posted to Dallison's 58,000-follower TikTok page OutdoorChaos shows one pal holding the shark's jaws open while Scott smashes his metal beer can onto its teeth. The shark, which appears to be gasping for air, recoils backwards with the impaled can stuck on its bottom jaw. Eventually the animal manages to shake it off and Scott proudly picks up his Busch Light Apple can to drink from the hole. A third fisherman, who grins while he also records the controversial act, then fistbumps Scott as they both appear to laugh at the defenceless shark still being held on the beach.   
    A GROUP of "disrespectful" fishermen were slammed for gloating about pinning down a shark down and using its teeth to open a can of beer. Keen hunters Wyatt Dallison and Cody Scott filmed themselves holding the terrified fish's jaw so one of them could smash open a beer on its jaws. 5The moment 'disrespectful' fishermen pin down a shark and use its jaws to open a beer canCredit: Kennedy News / Outdoorchaos / Ti 5The disturbing footage, posted on TikTok, sparked intense public backlashCredit: Kennedy News / Outdoorchaos / Ti 5The men were out fishing on the coast of Florida when the disgusting event took placeCredit: Kennedy News / Cody Scott / Face The friends were fishing on a Florida beach when they caught what's believed to have been a sand tiger shark and decided to use it as a living can opener.

    Bolt, a sea lion named after Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt, lived up to his name. The 260-pound adult male sea lion had just been hit with a sedation dart when he bolted off from a dock in the Dana Point Harbor. The blue dart was fired by a member of a Pacific Marine Mammal Center rescue team, only the second time a team from the center had independently sedated a sea lion remotely. PMMC has been challenged with a series of entangled marine mammals this year. The entanglements often come from the animals being caught in drift gillnets and then either breaking free from them or being cut out by fishermen.

    08/05/2021 at 6:32 PM CEST Environmental groups have once again raised the alarm voice: “Atlantic salmon is in danger of extinction in Spain & rdquor;. The results of the salmon fishing season, which closed in July, use in defense of this argument. In Asturias, the main stronghold of salmon on the peninsula, 526 specimens were caught this year. They are 230 less than in 2020, and a figure that is very far from the historical maximum, the 6,893 salmon that were caught in 1969. These numbers, according to conservationists denote “A serious problem for the future & rdquor;. An assertion that fishermen do not share. Conservationists had warned just before the start of the fishing season, in April: “Salmon is condemned to disappear in Asturian rivers & rdquor;, where about 90% of all the specimens that are landed in Spain are caught. Now, they assure that the capture data has come to prove them right: “Almost no salmon left & rdquor;. “Despite our complaints, the few fish that reach the & rdquor; rivers are being wiped...
    HONOLULU - Early morning in Honolulu, yellowfin, bigeye and other types of tuna, along with swordfish, are put up for auction after being offloaded from ships overnight. Longline boats, 145 of them, operate from this port, trailing kilometers-long baited lines. These vessels mostly fish in international waters at least 400 kilometers offshore, alongside boats from Taiwan, China, Japan and South Korea. Wholesale buyers compete for the catch in an early morning auction, and a single high-quality tuna can fetch from several hundred dollars to more than $1,000. Confrontations are rare on the high seas near Hawaii, where the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command is based and the U.S. Coast Guard maintains a strong presence. But fisherman here have watched with concern as Chinese fishing vessels intimidate Philippine fisherman in waters that China claims in the South China Sea.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Headquartered on Boston’s Fish Pier, Red’s Best was founded to serve fishermen first. Host Rachel Holt meets the entrepreneur behind the business for an inside look at how they’re uniquely connecting fishermen with consumers, and using technology to create a more sustainable supply chain.
    Lawmakers in Kenya are planning legislation to ban companies from importing fish from China, the country’s Daily Nation reported Tuesday, after years of controversy involving exploitation of natural resources and reports of Beijing selling the African country poisoned fish. Silas Tiren, the head of the Kenyan National Assembly’s Committee on Agriculture — which controls fisheries policy — told the Nation that Kenya’s fish reserves are too rich for a need to import from abroad, forcing local fishermen to compete with much larger corporate entities. “I don’t see why we should import from China when we have enough fish in the country. There is a lot of potential in our waters, we must capture it,” Tiren reportedly said. The lawmaker accused China, and other unnamed foreign countries, of “fishing from our waters and later selling to us,” damaging the ability of local fishermen to sustain their families. China and Kenya, under current President Uhuru Kenyatta, have greatly expanded their economic ties. Kenya is a partner in China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a global infrastructure program in which China offers developing countries...
    PROVINCETOWN (CBS) — The coyote chased Marcy Sterlis from the race point dunes, down to the waters’ edge in Provincetown. All she had was a stick. “I was assuming it would react and leave, and it didn’t. And it totally caught me off guard, and it kept coming towards me,” she said. The coyote kept coming back at her. Two fishermen, who shot a video of the incident, heard Marcy yelling. Marcy fending off a coyote that approached her in Provincetown. (WBZ-TV) They inched their boat up to the sand to give her an escape route. “I know we had to get her out of there, had to do something. No one else was,” said rescuer Bill Kelley. Marcy scrambled into the boat, and they took her to safety. “I was terrified, and if it weren’t for two fishermen coming to get me, I don’t know what I would have done because they were the only ones there to help me,” Sterlis said. Last summer, in Provincetown, a coyote bit a beachgoer and killed a dog. Wildlife experts believe it...
    A German court has ruled that women cannot be excluded from a traditional event dating back to the 16th century.  The event sees fishermen compete to catch the biggest fish in a stream running through a Bavarian town.  The state court in Memmingen said the group that organises the town's Fischertag, or fishermen's day, must allow female members to participate in the climax of the annual summer event.  It features people jumping into the stream with nets to catch trout and whoever catches the biggest fish is crowned the 'fishermen's king'.  The 1931 statutes of the group which organises the competition states that 'to preserve the centuries-old tradition' only male members who have lived in Memmingen for at least five years are allowed to participate.  A female member who objected took her case to a district court in Memmingen and won, and on Wednesday the state court threw out an appeal by the organisers.  The state court in Memmingen said the group that organises the town's Fischertag, or fishermen's day, must allow female members to participate in the climax...
    BERLIN (AP) — A German court ruled Wednesday that women can’t be excluded from a traditional event in which fishermen compete to catch the biggest fish in a stream that runs through a Bavarian town. The state court in Memmingen said the group that organizes the town’s Fischertag, or fishermen’s day, must allow female members to participate in the climax of the annual summer event, which features people jumping into the stream with nets to catch trout. Whoever catches the biggest fish is crowned the “fishermen’s king.” The tradition is said to date back to the 16th century. The 1931 statutes of the group that organizes the competition state that “to preserve the centuries-old tradition,” only male members who have lived in Memmingen for at least five years are allowed to participate. A female member who objected took her case to a district court in Memmingen and won, and on Wednesday the state court threw out an appeal by the organizers. It found that their stated aims of service to local history, culture and environmental protection don’t justify the unequal...
    A 53-year-old man died after a pair of Jersey Shore boaters tried rescuing him earlier this week, authorities said. Stanley Zagleski III, of Carteret, was rescued by a pair of fisherman who noticed he was struggling in the Shrewsbury River near Bay Avenue around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, New Jersey State Police Sgt. Philip Curry said. The boaters pulled Zagleski onto their boat and began CPR, before dialing 911, Highlands Police Chief Robert Burton told Daily Voice. CPR continued until EMS arrived, who took over and transported the Zagleski to Monmouth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Curry said. The official cause of death and the reason Zagleski was in the water were under investigation.
    MOSS LANDING — On a cool Thursday morning this week, Calder Deyerle powered up his Boston Whaler and headed out of Moss Landing Harbor in search of the catch of the day. But this catch had no fins or tails or claws. Deyerle was hunting crab gear. Five or six years ago, more than 70 whales — mostly fin, blue and humpbacks — became caught in the lines that connect a surface buoy to the crab trap resting on the ocean floor. Because of a crash in the krill population, the whales came in closer to shore to feed on alternative food sources and right into the crab lines. Lines and traps meant for Dungeness crabs can be deadly to whales that become ensnared in the equipment, often causing dehydration, infected wounds, breathing or reproduction problems and even starvation. But efforts by Dungeness crab fishermen have dramatically reduced the number of whale entanglements. There have been none this year. The far greater threat to whales today is not from crab gear, rather from ship strikes. Deyerle is one of nine...
    WALLY the Walrus is facing deportation — after angering fishermen by capsizing and wrecking boats. The 2,000lb beast could be moved from his temporary home on the Isles of Scilly — but officials fear he may simply swim back after he is released. 7Wally the walrus hitches a rideCredit: Simon Carder/Triangle News Sources from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs told The Sun it was working with expert divers on a plan to transport him safely. However, they are also ­concerned about the welfare of the giant mammal, which normally lives in the Arctic but was first spotted here back in March. Wally’s latest UK stint came shortly before England’s Euros clash with Scotland last month, when he arrived on the Isles of Scilly, which are just off Cornwall.  He had returned after being spotted basking off France and Spain and, at first, locals were excited to see him. But now they say he has become a danger who is costing them money. Wally has caused trouble by taking marathon kips on boats — either breaking them or...

    Three fishermen were rescued off the shore of Long Island by the Coast Guard. The rescue took place around 9:30 p.m., Sunday, June 27 about 72 miles southeast of Montauk.  Coast Guard officials received a VHF radio call from a 44-foot commercial fishing vessel, the Nite Nurse, reporting the vessel was taking on water and sinking. The Coast Guard issued an urgent marine information broadcast and dispatched a Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew, an HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crew, and Coast Guard Cutter Kingfisher to the scene. The Nite Nurse crew was advised to don life jackets and ensure they had an emergency position-indicating radio beacon with them prior to abandoning the ship into their life raft. The helicopter crew arrived on the scene and located the life raft. All three fishermen were safely hoisted into the helicopter and transported to Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, where emergency medical services personnel were waiting. “This case was a success because these mariners did everything professional mariners should do to be found,” said Lt. Banning Lobmeyer,...
