It appears New England groundfishermen aren't alone in their distaste for catch share management. West Coast groundfishermen say they're suing the Department of Commerce over a catch share program that's slated to begin Jan. 1, 2011.

Last month, I wrote about “The Watermen,” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1715223/ a horror film being shot in Virginia in which a clan of commercial fishermen captures a crew of sport fishermen; trapped on an island, the anglers must fight for their lives.
Well, with Halloween little more than a week away, it seems only fitting to write about another horror movie being filmed that has a commercial fishing background. But it’s a horror movie of a different sort — one that’s all too real to New England fishermen.

If it's fall, it must be waterfront festival time.

Just take a look at our calendar list of industry-related events. In September alone, such festivals were held in Los Angeles, Astoria, Ore., Hatteras Village, N.C., New Bedford, Mass., and Seattle. In these and other ports all over the country, dockside festivals celebrate a region's working waterfronts.

We're about ready to celebrate a milestone here at National Fisherman. When the November issue arrives in your mailbox, we'll be blowing out the candles on the proverbial birthday cake (and keeping a fire extinguisher handy) to celebrate our 50th anniversary.

It's nice to head into the weekend sharing a little good news. Looks like Washington and British Columbia fishermen are enjoying an unexpected bonanza of salmon returning to the Fraser River.
