Other Media | FiskerForum: Gearing up for tuna

Thursday, June 11, 2020

Feedback from Swan-Net Gundry (SNG) customers has been highly positive as the company’s new design concept of incorporating more mesh into the side wing panels of pelagic trawls for herring, mackerel and horse mackerel has returned impressive results.

This arrangement is designed to reduce the possibility of fish escaping through the sides of the trawls as, with current traditional designs the fish can escape through the side gaps. But by now incorporating extra mesh in the wings means closing this exit route and, importantly, this process does not alter the opening of the trawl.

At present the gaps in the side wing area can vary in length, but can range from 30 up to 250metres and SNG have addressed this problem with the design of two versions using the new ‘closed sides’ concept – one for pair trawling and the other for single boat trawling.

IN BRIEF - Maine eel fishermen have productive year, but price is low

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine’s baby eel fishermen had a productive year in the state’s rivers and streams, but the price for the eels was much lower than usual.

The fishing season for the eels, which are called elvers, ended on Sunday. Fishermen caught at least 9,650 pounds of the eels during a season in which they were limited to 9,688.

The elvers are valuable because they’re used as seed stock by Asian aquaculture companies that raise them to maturity for use as food. They were worth $525 pounds at the docks this year. That’s much more than most fish species, but a steep decline from last year’s average of $2,091.
