National Fisherman

National Fisherman - December 2012

Prospects of another late season start, price wrangling put crabbers in a pinch

Alaska & Pacific Dungeness

California Dungeness crab fishermen's season may start late again, but if landings are as robust as they were last season, it will be worth the wait.

Late one December night, the crew of a 200-foot steel tuna seiner fishing more than 700 miles north of American Samoa prepared to steam home.


A few of my favorite things

I love the fishing industry, as anyone who reads this column knows. The heart is in the people. This month we feature two of my favorite Alaska salmon fishermen, Bill Webber Jr. and Corey Arnold.


Young man and the sea

Corey Arnold is one man with one camera, two careers, and the world of fishing at his feet

By Jessica Hathaway

Corey Arnold owes a lot to his dad, Chris. The elder Arnold was a nursery man, growing and selling avocados and tropical plants. Corey didn't follow in those career footsteps, but he did turn two of his dad's treasured hobbies into a career that spans decades and the globe, even though he is only 36 years old.

Innovative design? Chix Dig It; Novi is decked for scalloping

A lot of people think there's nothing you can do to distinguish a fiberglass boat from other boats of the same make and model swinging on moorings up and down the coast.


Inside the Industry

NMFS recently released a draft action plan for fish discard and release mortality science, creating a list of actions that they hope can better inform fisheries.

We know that fishermen have to deal with bycatch by discarding or releasing unwanted catch overboard, but there is a data gap regarding how those fish survive.


A new study has identified a set of features common to all ocean ecosystems that provide a visual diagnosis of the health of the underwater environment coastal communities rely on.

Together, the features detail cumulative effects of threats -- such as overfishing, pollution, and invasive species,  allowing responders to act faster to increase ocean resiliency and sustainability.
