FISHERMENADVICE ON HOW TO CATCH FISH, NOT TURTLESNAIROBI/HONOLULU/BANGKOK, 2 August (UNEP) Fishermen who use large circular hooks baited with fish rather than squid may not only boost their catches , they may also significantly reduce the number of turtles killed and harmed in fishing gear every year.Studies, using so called “circle hooks” baited with mackerel, found that around 90 per cent fewer leatherback turtles and over 60 per cent fewer loggerhead turtles were caught compared to the use of traditional J shaped hooks baited with squid.Meanwhile the fishermen involved in the United States Atlantic longline swordfish fishery caught up to a fifth more swordfish when using the circle hooks and mackerel as bait.The importance of testing new kinds of hooks and fishing methods as a way of conserving rare and endangered migratory marine turtles is highlighted in a new booklet called “Catch Fish Not Turtles Using Longline” compiled by the Honolulu, Hawaii based Blue Ocean Institute.It has been produced in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) Regional Seas Programme and the Indian Ocean South East Asian (IOSEA) Marine Turtle Secretariat, as well as numerous fisheries and research bodies.Sea turtles are among the most extraordinary and charismatic creatures on the planet. They are some of the world’s great nomads, sometimes navigating thousands of miles between feeding and nesting grounds. Some turtles, like the olive ridley, have been around over 200 million years, once living alongside the dinosaurs.

But Clare never hit top gear and Limerick refused to surrender. John Kiely’s side responded with three scores, reducing the deficit to five points and they should have been closer before Seadna Morey halted their momentum with a score after coming up from corner back. Kelly’s penalty offered the chance to put them out of sight and the miss, and Hayes’ late strike, left Limerick closer than they should have been..
The platform, which is also tough, can be weighed down with sand or water. The attached ball return also means that balls will get lost less often and playing games with a small number of people will be easier. The goal can be used inside or outside, and by one person or more.

Was always the one saying a terrible dad, Danny said. Like, you the only one that thinks that. Used to get ticked off and say, we all on the road. “Luck at at’in Da’,fo’er props.” (Look at that one dad, four propellers). “Ay! It’s a big’in.” My father would reply, as he lay on the grass enjoying the sun on his face, a tiny portable radio close to his ear. Of course, I do not think he got much rest with three noisy kids jumping up and down every time an airplane took off or landed.
