Seth Hogan’s report about Seaport Expo 2018 focused on the relationships that the Gloucester fishing community has as a result of just not the New England coast but strong connections with the world as well.

As an example Hogan described a minor cricis - boats didn’t go out because of the storm last week - hence NO MONKFISH FOR THE VIP DISPLAY.

Okay, okay, okay ... someone suggested the Scots - wait a minute Sefatia has had them in her Facebook friends big time for yeee-ar-ahs.

The fresh monkfish on platter was displayed in a VIP room that overlooks above the entire exhibition floor with zillions of blue cloth partitioned booths add was other seafood for City of Gloucester’s guests.

I also read that a Gloucester fisherman came in contact with Korean businessman (intentionally dropped “south”).  Although an impression was made about the Mass. lobster, verses Canadian that the Koreans buy - it would have been cool if the lobsterman had a lobster boat docked nearby.

If I had gone this year I would have like to hear the miracle of the Norwegian fishing industry - first hand - cod is back!

On Tuesday, 3/20/18 at 7:30PM The Cape Ann Cinema will show “Dead in the Water” a documentary about the perils of Gloucester Fisherman of late.  The Gloucester Fisherman’s Wives financed $65,000 for this movie produced and director former native David Wittkower,

He was a young whipper snapper when we traded trials and tribulations of filmmaking.  I was a senior whipper snapper.  

I think David moved to LA in the late 90s and HE’s HOSTING A Q&A WITH ANGELA from GFWA / THIS TUESDAY 3/20/18 7:30PM $15

This is a documentary that everyone should see.  It is very well done and an eye opener to many people of what is going on in the fishing industry.  The story needed to be told and has already received an award in one of the country's film festivals.

Ah, yes -- more propaganda for the discredited claim that the ocean is teeming with fish and it is all the government's fault that the fishing industry collapsed.

Here is a good book to learn about the history of fishing (and stock depletion) in the Atlantic over 5 centuries... The Mortal Sea by W. Jeffrey Bolster.

Great book, by all accounts -- on my list, but not yet risen to the top.

Sorry for what propaganda I’ve put out.  But it’s true that Norwegian were here 20 years ago and they spoke in Gloucester and I think New Bedford.

Their plan was to self regulate and enforce - take baby steps with sport fishing charters then ease in the small mid-size trawlers. Now you can by fresh Norwegian cod at local stores along with competitive local caught.

Cod is back -at least in Norway.

Sport Charters are on small boats and they try out Norwegian waters.   There charter boats are remenescant of Korean Church (Moonies) fleet in Gloucester if the 1980-90’s

Watching that fleet leave at night was awesome - an un-stringed necklace where many boats, 40 or so, could attack the waters to find tuna all at once over wide area.

The Moonies once thought as a threat actually educated Gloucester fisherman of their success.

So if I could have chosen a third career it would be using my brain cells of mathematical modeling. But those brain cells are 45 years old - I’ve wanted to understand NOAA’s approach at regulating the American fisheries vs Norway's

These two videos relate the enforcement of NOAA’s regulation and limit decisions - there are more videos:

Kind of extreme as pointed out by New. Bedford’s mayor:



And wow! An armed plain clothes NOAA enforcer giving a fisherman a hard time!




The real culprit are enormous fish factory ships but that’s a different topic.

The house was nearly full Tuesday night to view “Dead in the Water” but it was unfeasible for the Filmmaker to be there.

It’s the same story of quotas and limits “I could catch my limit in fifteen minutes.”  “At times I fish without a crew - it’s dangerous”. Distrust by NOAA. NOAA data and algorithms have been held close to the vest by NOAA for decades.

The filmmaker had interviews of NOAA individuals and all releases were declined.  

I think Congressman Seth Moulton was the only federal employee interviewed - one of Seth’s quotes was a winner - “NOAA told me they were studying one area and the fish are all gone. ...  I (US Rep Moulton) asked “could the fish have moved?”  NOAA responded “We didn’t consider that”

From what I understand the film will be presented elsewhere in New England - several places in Maine.  I don’t think it is too late for NOAA to okay their own footage to edit the documentary to include their input. I think the footage is “in the can” and just needs a NOAA release.                
   
Did NOAA attend this screening?

If Moulton said that he is grossly misinformed. 

Thank you for confirming for me that this was an extremely biased, inaccurate pile of steaming propaganda.

As Al Cottone noted at the end of the film, fishermen are having a hard time avoiding cod in trying to catch other fish. The big issue is the flawed science and they way the assessments are done. There is a lot of data out there that could be used as part of the assessments but the Science Center seems reluctant to change their ways.
