PG Flow Solutions will supply a seawater circulation pump and engine room pumps for a new wellboat.

Aas Mekaniske Verksted ordered the circulation pump, which is designed to ensure safe, efficient and humane transportation of fish, for wellboat Ronjafisk, under construction for Sølvtrans.

“We see that Aas Mekaniske and Sølvtrans put great emphasis on animal welfare, which translates into economic gain. This is one of the main reasons for why they have chosen to go with our pump systems,” said Roy Norum, CEO of PG Flow Solutions.

Think you have some of these? If so, you could be in for a pay day.

If you fish, chances are, you have a tackle box full of old fishing lures sitting in your garage. Back in the day, a lot of lures were mass-produced and have almost no value today. However, there are a few diamonds in the rough, if you’re lucky enough. What makes looking for old fishing lure so fun is that you never know when one might pop up when you least expect it. After seeing these nine lures below, you may want to go check the garage.

It’s open season on Atlantic salmon as the public is urged to help mop up a salmon spill from a damaged net pen holding 305,000 fish at a Cooke Aquaculture fish farm near Cypress Island.

Lummi fishers out for chinook on Sunday near Samish, south of Bellingham Bay, were shocked to pull up the spotted, silvery-sided Atlantic salmon — escapees that turned up in their nets again Monday.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is urging the public to catch as many of the fish as possible, with no limit on size or number. The fish are about 10 pounds each. No one knows how many escaped from the floating pen, but the net had some 3 million pounds of fish in it when it imploded about 4 p.m. Saturday, said Ron Warren, fish program assistant director for the WDFW.

Jason was very surprised when the kitten trotted up to him meowing for help. The little fluff ball tried to climb his bag, demanding attention.

“She walked up to me and a friend as we were fishing. She tried to cross a two lane rural highway to the other side of the street where we were,” Jason told Love Meow.

Later they found another kitten who appeared to be her sibling. They suspected that they were abandoned. “(They were) too young to be separated from the mother.”

They couldn’t leave the kittens there so scooped them up and headed home.

Last weekend, Hurricane Harvey slammed into the coast of Texas and has been causing chaos ever since. The hurricane has now been downgraded to a Tropical Storm and has been dumping unprecedented amounts of rain for days. The destructive storm has claimed eight lives so far with more anticipated as the days go by.

In the Houston area alone, 30,000 people will be forced to leave their homes for more suitable shelter, and thousands more who will need more assistance. However, in spite of it, all these courageous Texans are not backing down and are stepping up to the plate to help their neighbors in need.

Girls First Time Fishing: For Snapper Off The East Coast Of Florida, With Back To Blue Adventure

Bottlenose dolphins that work together with humans to catch fish have their own distinctive whistle, one that may help them recognise each other.

Off Laguna, Brazil, fishers stand in a line in waist-deep water or wait in canoes while, farther out, bottlenose dolphins chase shoals of mullet to the shore. The fishers can’t see the fish in the murky water, so they wait for the dolphins to give a signal — like an abrupt dive or tail slap — then cast their nets.

Fishers catch larger and more fish when they work with dolphins. “Dolphins likely reap similar benefits,” says Mauricio Cantor of the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil – it might be easy for them to gobble up fish disoriented by the nets.

Virginia Tech professor Marc Edwards speaks about the Flint water crisis before the U.S. House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform in this March 2016 Flint Journal file photo.(Jake May | MLive.com)

FLINT, MI — A professor who helped expose the Flint water crisis says a single, new lead sinker placed in a water faucet can spike lead levels up to 96,000 parts per billion — more than 6,000 times the federal limit.

Marc Edwards, a professor at Virginia Tech, posted the results of new experiments conducted with water from Flint on the Flint Water Study website on Monday, Oct. 2.

The tests show a single, new lead sinker, placed in a faucet with Flint water can cause lead levels to skyrocket, while lead from a fishing sinker leaches very little lead when treated with phosphate to make the surface less reactive chemically.

The changes showed the effect of inhibitors like phosphate in water and the effect  on lead levels based on the duration of exposure.

Lead from a fishing sinker leaches very little lead — just 2 ppb — when treated with phosphate to render the surface less reactive chemically, results from the experiments show.

Australia has had tens of thousands of years of fisheries exploitation. That history reveals a staggering natural bounty, which has been alarmingly fragile without proper management. The current debate over the federal government’s new draft marine park plans is the latest chapter of this story.

Early accounts described what we can only read today as some sort of fishing Eden. The sea floor off the west coast of Tasmania was carpeted red with crayfish. Extraordinary schools of Australian salmon swelled the beaches of southern Australia — from Albany right around to Port Macquarie. Mountains of mullet migrated annually up the east coast of the continent.

Colonial writers described huge hauls of fish, caught using nets they had brought over on the First Fleet. One catch in 1788 was so large, wrote David Collins, the colony’s newly minted Judge-Advocate, that it actually broke the net. Collins speculated that if the haul had been landed, the entire catch could “have served the settlement [of over 1000] for a day”.
