    Spent 2 weeks aboard a fishing Vessel (Factory Ship) all fish fingers are is the absolute scrap they can't sell as fish.
    Haven't seen Skate for a couple of years in SA as it's listed as endangered.

    Come to Mozambique and watch the Chinese line fishing! No wonder fish are getting scarce.

    We have lots of nice Salmon (up to 40lbs) in the lower South Island rivers and power station feeder canals, but they have been declining slightly over recent years. Also large rainbow trout, with some occasional specimens of around 30lbs in the same areas. Unfortunately there are no Salmon in the North Island and the Brown and Rainbow Trout are smaller.

    We have plenty of big Barracuda down here in the South Pacific but they're not really edible, as they're usually infested with worms. Further north around Fiji, Samoa etc they're fine, ( warmer water may have something to do with it).

    Used to fish for these when it was Rhodesia.
    As always Catfish obviously need a clean from time to time due to the mud

    Yes I have nerys, and it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, not the salmon, but the way they mistreat such a beautiful fish, but that's Alaska! it's quantity not quality.๐Ÿ˜ 


    Cheers Pete

    btw, It looks like we here in England are stuck with Covid problems yet again.

    Pete,
    Have you watched any of the 'Alaska' programmes on TV where they catch salmon in nets, fish catching machines as well as by line. I like the way they talk blithely about needing hundreds to feed the dogs through the winter. It seems they feed them to the dogs as if they were ice lollies!

    I do like the way this post has got well away from Covid, the elephant in the room.

    Cheers, Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    You would have to go a long way to beat a line caught salmon, the king or queen of fishes๐Ÿ˜›
