Salmon Fishing explained

Is this an age thing? I started to feel the urge too a few weeks ago and so went out for the first time on my 50s Bday. I met with a few guys from the Drammen area which were very helpful getting things rolling. One fish caught - not by me though, but anyway. Less virtual than SWFF it seems as last ...

most important teaching skills

I prefer teaachers which tell me "why" and not "how" .. worst ae the ones telling you how "they" do it ... there´s alot of routes to Rome (actually all) ... the common is that one needs to know where Rome is ;-)

Cormorants

.... shooting doesn´t help. Damn hard to get these buggers as they fly high. Hunters don´t want to use their ammo on them either as there is no return in usable prey. Best is to destroy eggs by spraying them from a heli.

Plus that farmed salmon is unhealthy food. Google a bit and you will find a lot about this.

So salmon farming is a double whammy in terms of general fuck up.

WFFC 2013 in Norway corporating with salmon farm company

What I'm interested in, is the fish. And it turns out that the people who fish for them - ie us! - happen to be the most interested in their future. Fundamentally, through fishing, we become responsible for fish. We take on responsibility for their well-being, their environment and their future. Fu...

WFFC 2013 in Norway corporating with salmon farm company

Hi Marc, the background goes even a little further. The Vefsna river was "cleaned" withe rotenon (http://www.vetinst.no/Nyheter/Vel-gjennomfoert-rotenonbehandling-av-Vefsna) to fight salmon lice. Everything down from Laksforsen is illegal to fish. Still they allow for salmon farming, which is weird,...

WFFC 2013 in Norway corporating with salmon farm company

I think it is a good idea to contact the participants. I guess we all know one at least. They are maybe not fully aware that they are used to promote a salmon farming company. The timing of the nova sea press release leaves room to speculate. To me it looks like they waited on purpose until the even...
