Long Liners Taking Recreational Quota To Toss Dead Bluefin Over The Rail

Posted on December 26, 2013 at 12:01pm 0 Comments

Hi folks, as you know there is much brewing over at National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).  The big issue on the table is how does the USA account for the tragedy of long liners mistakenly catching bluefin tuna on their hooks, and unable to land them, have to toss them over the rail, dead, for crab food as they sink to the ocean floor.  This is called Dead Discard and its an issue that needs solving.…


Celebrating Dad's Birthday At The Chicken Canyon

Posted on August 2, 2013 at 11:16am 0 Comments

(The first 50 seconds has the amazing dolphin footage)

My brother Jeff and I had the pleasure of sharing our Dad’s 70th birthday with him fishing offshore at the Chicken Canyon, 65 miles off the New Jersey coast. The weather was perfect, with light and variable winds and seas 2-3 feet. We met at the boat 3:30AM and pushed off shortly thereafter. Running out in the dark Dad…

I don't really know if they have population on our little swamp of the Mediterranean sea. Anyhow, not a lot of awareness in Isreal for that. I was wondering if Tuna products are marked here for the fish type. I will check.

John- Even though our stocks may be a bit healthier than the east coast stocks we do not see many over 200# here. They are there but we rarely catch them. Yellowfin are another story. The problem here is the Mexican Tuna boats with their helicopters and spotter planes that decimate any schools they encounter. There is a very large live Bluefin market run my the Koreans/Japanese in Mexico.

Last summer the Royal Star did a research trip and tagged and brought back live Bluefin Tuna that the Monterey Aquarium picked up at the dock with a semi loaded with tanks to keep them alive for the trip to the aquarium.

We need to do something worldwide. I am a firm believer that if you want a fish dinner you should catch it yourself.

The fish on the end of the line in the pic is a Yellowfin at Alijos Rocks of the Mexican coast.

You can post some info on my website message boards at

Email me a 170x50 banner and I will add it to the rotation on West Coast Angler and My Fishing Pics (

Hi John - I love that you are doing this because I know how passionate you are about it and I know you will make a difference. I am going to pass it on to Teresa's husband, Schalk, because as a restaurant manager on the pier, I think he could be a good ally.
If it makes you feel any better, my boyfriend doesn't eat fish at all so we are definitely not in danger of effecting the supply...
Let me know if there's anything I can do.
Much love to you and the fam - Angie

Life is Good, well maybe not for the bluefin but hopefully this effort will make a difference. I see some familiar faces here.

Anxiously awaiting the arrival of another O'malley and once again, the changing of the guard at the cpad.

Hope all is well with you and your clan--

I m not sure of the leagality of the Bluefin fishery in Mexico but I would suspect anything Mexico has their paws on. They could care less about the fishery. They let Mexican boats use seiners out at Clarion & Socorro Islands and when we had a really good Yellowfin run a few years back they had all of their boats move to the west coast and start taking as much as they could. I think that the ban on Mexican Tuna by the US was lifted a year or two ago. I also know for a fact that they are still not Dolphin-safe.

Right now we are dealing with the MLPA/MPA crap and are at risk of losing a good portion of our fisheries to recreational fishing.

Hi John!
Thank's for the comment! Bluefin is not on our menu here in Denmark very often, but we do eat a lot of tuna in Dk, fresh as well as frosen . On the other hand, the issue "Save The Bluefin" is not very big in Denmark, yet, but it could be, i guess! A lot of people are going fishing over-sees in Dk every year. Catch and release are very common among us. An investment in our children's future, i recon!
The fish on the pic is a cod. I stopped fishing cod on the banks during winter time. It is breading season for them, and i think they should have their "honeymoon" in peace! I fish on shipwreck in the North sea and deep sea for Halibut in Norway during summertime. You could find me on Facebook if interested. My name is Torben Vestergaard. Would be cool to change pics ect.
See ya!!
