This link was forwarded to me by an astute friend-

(Note: link fixed, it works)


What parallels to NC!

"There are many species of fish we used to catch before but we can't find nowadays," Jasim says.

"We are truly worried that if the fishing effort is not substantially reduced, we may lose this resource for generations to come," Mr Chowdhury says.

The fees the government receives from trawler licences are a small fraction of the profit made by the handful of companies which own the industrial fleet. 

These companies sell and trade fishing licences that were issued by the government years ago, making it difficult for the department of fisheries to control the amount of vessels operating. 

But Mr Chowdhury is worried about the impact the super trawlers could have on fish stocks and the future of fisheries management in Bangladesh. 

"These super trawlers are a threat to marine resources,'' he says. 


NOW for the difference between NC and Bangladesh....

New legislation that will give the department the power to cancel old licences is currently making its way through parliament.


...and 

Mr. Sayedur Rahman Chowdhury

Where in the HELL are our "distinguished" professors sounding the alarm in NC?

...oh yeah, feeding at the grant trough run by NCDMF and NC SeaGrant.

Don't forget the millions of dollars in CRFL grants controlled by DMF.

...and don't think for a second that the "super trawlers" mentioned in the quote above are unique.

You can find similar sized trawlers to the Sea View and Sea Wind right here in the Pamlico Sound...for example, the Jacksonville based out-of-state trawler Captain Damien tracked on AIS trawling the Pamlico Sound in July of 2018.







Vessels tracked using AIS on the Pamlico Sound the week of July 30th, 2018.
