    Trap Fishing for Cuttlefish (1996)

    October 13, 2019

    #Music plays This video film shows the development of a trap
    fishery for cuttlefish in the English Channel. The film shows the life history of the cuttlefish, how to distinguish males from females, how cuttlefish traps can be constructed, how they work underwater and how to deploy the traps from a vessel. Most cuttlefish landed in the United Kingdom
    are caught by beam trawlers. Otter trawlers target cuttlefish in a similar
    way. Gill-nets can also be used to catch cuttlefish. The largest cuttlefish migrate to inshore
    breeding grounds in the spring, in shallow areas from the Isle of Wight eastwards to Hastings. It is at these times that cuttlefish traps
    are most effective. Maturing cuttlefish are caught at various
    times on the inshore grounds all along the Channel, their size depending on the point
    reached in their life cycles. The market for cuttlefish is mainly in France
    and Spain, and much of the gear technology used for the Hastings traps is based on very
    successful French trap fisheries in the Brittany region The common cuttlefish, Sepia officinalis,
    belongs to the group of molluscs called Cephalopods, which includes squid and octopus. Cuttlefish are easy to identify by their oval
    shape and undulating side fins along each side of the main body, which is also called
    the mantle. The mantle covers a hard bony structure called
    the sepion, or cuttle bone. The cuttle bone is porous, filled with liquid
    and gas. By changing the proportion of liquid to gas
    the animal can change its buoyancy. The head has a crown made up of eight arms
    each with suction cups. These arms surround the mouth; they also hide
    two special tentacles which are much longer than the arms and have flattened ends, also
    equipped with suction cups. They are used by the cuttlefish to seize live
    prey and withdraw it so it can be held firmly. Cuttlefish have very well developed eyes and
    have excellent vision. They can change their body colour rapidly
    to blend in with the background for camouflage. Colour changes are also used for signalling
    to other cuttlefish, especially during courtship displays and mating. Cuttlefish use the two long, undulating fins
    along each side of the mantle to move slowly through the water. The direction of undulation can be immediately
    reversed, making the animal very manoeuvrable indeed. This low speed type of movement is
    exploited when setting traps. Cuttlefish have another way of moving through
    the water; they can propel themselves very rapidly over short distances by expelling
    a jet of water from a siphon tube using powerful body muscles. This is usually an escape response and is
    often combined with the ejection of a dense cloud of black ink. The ink is secreted by special glands and
    gives a smokescreen effect while the animal makes good its escape. It’s important to be able to distinguish males
    from females, because it’s common practice for fishermen to use a live female as bait
    in cuttlefish traps. This is a male. Male cuttlefish are usually darker in colour
    with much stronger body striping than a female. The outer arms that meet the head underneath
    each eye are heavily striped in males and are unstriped in females. This is a female. Females are usually smaller than males and
    have shorter, wider mantles and heads. The catch is separated into males and females.
    Males are boxed, ready for market; females are kept alive in seawater, ready for use
    as bait. This seawater must be regularly changed to keep the females in good condition. The females are placed in the traps at the last possible moment before shooting the traps. In spring, cuttlefish gather to mate in shallow
    inshore waters, usually less than 30 metres deep. These areas are often close to bays and estuaries.
    Males actively seek out females, and mating takes place in the ‘head-to-head’ position,
    when the male transfers sperm capsules across to the female. Soon after mating the female is able to lay
    fertilised eggs. Female cuttlefish lay their eggs on any suitable
    object that they can wrap the individual egg cases around. Eggs are often found in bunches
    on the bars and mesh of cuttlefish traps. Each female lays several hundred eggs over a few days. The young hatch as miniature adults and grow
    rapidly, feeding initially on small crustaceans before progressing to finfish. When feeding,
    cuttlefish either ambush their prey or pursue and grab their prey. Since cuttlefish feed mainly on live prey,
    it would be impractical to use food as the attractant in traps. This is why fishermen take advantage of the
    cuttle’s mating behaviour by using a live female as a lure. This technique entices both males and females
    into the traps. In addition, French fishermen have found that
    cuttlefish can be attracted by artificial lures White, shiny objects, such as this piece of plastic, are often put into traps for this purpose. It’s been found that females used as lures
    need to be changed on every haul. This is because the aggressive mating behaviour
    of cuttlefish can lead to injury. Aggression in the confines of a trap can lead
    to damage that may affect catch quality. Cuttles reach adulthood within 18 to 22 months
    when they are 20 to 30 centimetres in mantle length and weigh between 1 and 2 kilograms. It is these large, mature animals that are
    the target of the trap fishery. Cuttlefish breed only once, and then die.
    Those animals which don’t breed in their first year are believed to breed the following year. So – why use traps? A trap fishery for cuttlefish is attractive
    to the inshore fishermen because it can be worked on a daily basis by small vessels with
    limited engine power. Trap fishing has much less effect on the seabed
    than fishing with beam trawls, otter trawls and other heavy towed gears. Cuttles that are caught in traps don’t contain
    sand and grit, unlike animals which have been caught in a trawl. Traps are selective for large animals, and
    market demand is for large animals which usually fetch good prices, whereas trawls are less discriminating. Traps are most effective during the spring
    breeding season on inshore grounds. Some of these grounds are inaccessible to
    larger trawlers due to local regulations; the development of trap fisheries in these
    areas is therefore a logical step. Traps are especially useful for fishermen
    in Hastings who use their small inshore vessels to work trammel nets for soles and plaice. Traps catch cuttlefish when the presence of
    spider crabs on the fishing grounds prevents the use of these trammel nets. Spider crabs are very spiny creatures and
    cause a lot of damage to trammel nets set on the seabed to catch flatfish. Once spider crabs get into a net they can
    be notoriously difficult to remove. The cuttlefish trap fishery therefore presents a welcome
    alternative that can be turned to during these times. So – what kinds of traps are available? Of the many different designs of cuttlefish
    traps used around the world, there are three which have been shown to work well in the
    shallow waters of the English Channel. These three designs have been successfully
    used in the Brittany region of France. The most recent of these designs is a square,
    pyramid shape with two entrances, which was developed for use in the St. Malo Bay area. It is this design which was used for the development
    of a trap suitable for catching cuttlefish on the English side of the Channel. The French pyramid design is made of a square
    framework of round section steel bar. The base of the framework is about a metre
    wide, the top is about 70 centimetres wide and it stands about 40 centimetres tall. The framework is welded together, and to minimise corrosion, it can be either galvanised or plastic coated. The trap framework is covered with light nylon
    netting. French fishermen have found that white netting is attractive to cuttlefish,
    so this was used for the English version of the trap. A mesh size of 70 millimetres is commonly
    used in France. Using larger mesh may allow small cuttlefish to escape, making the trap
    more size-selective. Larger mesh can also allow by-catches of unwanted species like spider crabs. This makes the traps less species-selective. Unwanted species may cause damage to cuttlefish,
    possibly affecting catch quality. Smaller mesh sizes, especially with thick twines,
    get clogged easily with cuttlefish eggs and weed growth. This discolours the netting and
    obscures any visual attractants inside the trap. Smaller mesh sizes are also more difficult
    to rig onto the framework. Two cone-shaped entrances are fitted on opposite
    sides of the trap. These are generally made of wire mesh; galvanised chicken wire was
    found to be particularly effective in the French fishery and worked well in the English
    fishery. The entrances must allow cuttlefish easy access into the trap and limit the opportunity for escape. Being highly manoeuvrable animals, it’s not impossible for them to find their way out again. Because of this, new entrance designs are
    being tried continually. The trap is emptied of its catch through a
    flap in the netting. This flap is kept tightly closed while the
    trap is set on the seabed. The trap is mounted on a heavy steel skid. This skid protects the bottom of the trap
    from seabed abrasion. It ensures that the trap lands upright on
    the seabed and remains stable in use. It also makes an attachment point for a bridle line. Further protection to the framework can be
    given by covering it in rope or strips of rubber. A finished trap of this type weighs
    about 18 kilograms and can be handled quite easily by one person. #Music plays Refinements are being made continually to
    the basic trap design. The uncanny ability of cuttlefish to find their way out of the
    two-entrance trap led to the development of a trap with a third entrance which leads into
    a separate compartment, or parlour, holding the female lure. This third entrance makes
    escape more difficult from the parlour. So – how are these traps fished? Cuttlefish traps are rigged in strings or
    fleets, in a similar way to gill nets and trammel nets. The strings of traps are anchored at each
    end and the position of the string is marked with ‘dhan floats’ at the surface. The fleet length, the number of traps and
    the spacings between traps can all vary, depending on the working arrangement of the boat and
    on fishing conditions. These boats are using five fleets, each having ten traps which are spaced twenty fathoms apart. Each trap is rigged to a main ground line
    using short lengths of rope. These strops are connected to a bridle which is fixed to the trap.
    The strop which connects the trap to the main ground line is made in two sections.
    One half of the strop, about a metre long, is spliced into the ground line.
    The other end of this rope has an eye spliced into it. The other half of the strop is connected to
    the bridle on the trap. The free end of this rope has a strong nylon toggle spliced into
    it. This forms a quick-release connection, making the arrangement more flexible. The
    two halves of the strop are connected by passing the toggle through the eye splice; like a
    button in a button hole. The weight of the trap on the rope makes sure that they don’t
    come apart. At sea, traps must be stacked carefully on
    the deck. This ensures that the traps are shot in the correct order. The shooting operation
    is more difficult when space is limited. The traps are shot in a line, following the direction of the tide. They are normally left to fish for 24 hours unless bad weather prevents subsequent
    recovery. Females used as lures rarely survive periods longer than 24 hours in the traps and extended soak times will risk loss of catch quality. The recovery, or hauling operation, involves
    the use of an hydraulic line hauler. The hauler retrieves the ground line over an open-sided
    block which is suspended from a davit. As each trap reaches the surface, it is retrieved
    by a crewman and brought on board for emptying. The traps are then stacked carefully in sequence,
    ready for shooting again. Once on board, this valuable catch should
    be treated with respect. Cuttlefish should be boxed and regularly wetted
    to remove excess ink and keep them cool. Covering the boxes helps reduce the drying
    effect of the sun and the wind. To maintain catch quality, it is important that the catch reaches the market with the minimum of delay. This video film has described trap fishing
    for cuttlefish off the south coast of England. The film has been based on information and
    experience gained by Seafish gear technologists in collaboration with commercial fishermen
    from both England and France. The film has given an insight into the life
    history of the cuttlefish and how it may be exploited responsibly using traps. This method has been illustrated by a combination
    of unique underwater observations together with footage taken during commercial fishing
    trips. This film would not have been possible without
    the assistance of local fishermen at Hastings. #Music plays


    About the Las Vegas Wash

    September 11, 2019

    With years of dedicated
    research and careful restoration the Las Vegas Wash continues
    to thrive as an important component of our water system. A lot goes on here at the Wash. The SNWA monitors water
    quality, conducts bird and fish surveys,
    plants new vegetation, and coordinates public
    outreach, all to ensure the Wash is a shared
    and protected resource. The Las Vegas Wash
    is an urban river that serves as the final
    link in our water supply and is the primary drainage
    channel for the entire Las Vegas Valley. Each day, the Wash captures
    about 200 million gallons of highly treated effluent,
    urban run off, and shallow ground
    water as well as run off from occasional storms. It acts as a natural
    filter as it channels the water to Lake
    Mead, Southern Nevada’s primary source
    of drinking water. Wetlands help filter
    sediment and other impurities from its flows. The abundant natural
    resources of the Wash have drawn people to its
    banks for thousands of years but flows within the channel
    increase significantly as Southern Nevada’s population
    grew in the 20th century, causing erosion
    that drained wetlands and threatened wildlife
    habitat, water quality, and water waste infrastructure. The Las Vegas Wash coordination
    committee was formed in 1998 to help restore
    the suffering waterway. The committee
    identified areas of focus and developed recommendations
    to stabilize the Wash. Thanks to years of hard
    work by the committee and community volunteers
    the Wash is thriving today. The Las Vegas Wash is one
    of those great success stories and one that the Wash team
    is incredibly proud of. Historically you had
    this incredible resource that brought in hundreds
    of species of wildlife in the middle of the
    desert including people like the
    indigenous Southern Piu. Over time as Las Vegas
    was settled and developed and grown out the
    wetlands degraded and we lost a lot of those
    resources that we used to have. Over the last 20 years the
    Las Vegas Wash coordination committee has worked hard
    and we have reestablished those wetlands. We’ve stabilized the sediment
    and stopped the erosion and we’ve increased water
    quality and we’ve created a wonderful resource for wildlife
    and for local Las Vegans. CRYSTAL: The Wash team
    attributes some of the success to the construction of
    weirs, dam like structures that slow the flow of
    water and control erosion along the bed of the Wash. Work is underway to expand
    the historic lateral weir and complete the
    Sunrise Mountain weir, the last of 21 planned weirs. To further ensure water
    quality SNWA hydrologists routinely collect water
    samples from strategic sites in the mainstream Wash. The samples are then analyzed
    for potential impacts on water quality. Hydrologists also can monitor
    water quality in real time. We have several programs
    monitoring water quality in the Wash and tributaries
    and one of the programs is the real time water quality
    and monitoring program. Basically we use multiple
    water quality probes leaving the Wash 24 hours
    a day and seven days a week and then those
    multiple probes can record four different
    water quality parameters including temperature,
    PH, specific conductance, and dissolved oxygen. So that program gives us
    real time water quality data. Every 20 minutes they
    record a set of data. CRYSTAL: By enhancing the
    Wash the Las Vegas Wash coordination committee has
    created a variety of habitats for wildlife. The Las Vegas Wash
    wildlife management plan establishes three objectives,
    conserve native species, protect and
    enhance their habitats, and increase environmental
    awareness of these resources in the community. Biologists conduct wildlife
    surveys along the Wash in support of the plan and
    for regulatory compliance related to the
    Endangered Species Act. Public outreach
    and community involvement are key components of the
    Las Vegas Wash’s success. Hundreds of volunteers
    labor twice a year to help restore wildlife habitat and control erosion by
    stabilizing soils. The Las Vegas Wash
    coordination committee organizes green up planting
    events twice a year. To date, more than 11,500
    volunteers have planted about 115,000
    native trees and shrubs across nearly 265 acres. The Las Vegas Wash is a
    place where you can hike, bike, and walk on miles
    of designated trails. In the summer time you can
    cool off at the Wetlands Park Nature Center and catch
    striking views of the city from almost
    anywhere in the park. For more information

    Well, slap me three times and hand me back
    to my mama. Quick Kev here and I am sure you probably
    heard, it is all over the news, it is breaking the internet, it is the Famous, Fantastic,
    Fishy, Festive, Phase Four of the boat project. That is what I am saying. Now, I would like to see you say that three
    times fast. I did it in as little as 100 trys. I am proud of that. Pretty much all my life. (Whistling music in the background) Hey, what’s
    up. I am just doing a little whittling there. Yeah, well, I will just take you on a little
    tour of the famous Phase Four Boat Project. (Pretends like he is talking through a radio. And down here, we have the freshly laid carpet. We have fiberglassed that wood in. It is indestructible. The trolling motor is going right there. We have got out seats and we have a little
    storage. Going to run a strip of camo (pause), I am
    sorry, did I say camo. I think I did. I am pretty sure. Along the side. You could barely see it! We are getting close. Glasswork on the hull, painting, camo. Then, the rod box lids will be carpeted and
    hinged. The rods will go right in there like this. We did a lot of work under this deck. A lot of hours. Going to have a seat right here. It is going to be nice and comfortable. We have glued down the carpet. We have two toned going on here I thought
    it was kind of cool with black and grey. I try not to brag too much. (Next up, “How to Build a Boat”) You got to
    Get Your Quick On, that’s what I say. Gotta do it, do it, just do it, you just got
    to do it, you know. You want to build a boat, you just do it,
    okay. Just do it, you do it, you do it this way
    and you do it that way, and you do it. That is the main thing. Tip of the day: “Just do it”. (laughs a little bit) It won’t be too long
    I am going to have to get us a little Quick On out in the wilderness. Wild man! And uh, we have got some stuff coming up. I mean you might just want to hang around
    and you might even, I am just sayin’, you might want to subscribe! Because we have got some music video coming
    and it won’t be long be fishing, obviously. (Crazy Quick Approaching) I feel a crazy quick
    coming on. (You hear a swish sound and he comes back
    with long hair and a fishing rod) (Music lyrics: Eastbound and down, loaded up and truckin’,
    we’re gonna do what they say can’t be done, we’ve got a long way to go and a short time
    to get there, I’m Eastbound just watch old bandit run. Keep your foot hot on the pedal, son never
    mind them brakes, let it all hang out cause we got a run to make. The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there’s
    beer in Texarkana, we’ll bring it back (then the music fades out). Yes sir, I hate that happens. (Female voice comes in and asks, “Hey Quick
    Kev, tell us a good old fashioned campfire story from one of your bombastic fishing trips). Yeah you know, I was just thinking about the
    time that I was the most scared in the water. My buddy Robert and I were fishing the channel
    in New Smyrna (Florida, United States) and we had our surf rods and our live bait. We waded out, it was a sandy bottom, then
    it just suddenly dropped into the channel about 100 feet out. We would walk ALL the out to that drop off,
    cast as far as we could, and we were sitting there waiting for a bite. It was quiet and peaceful, nothing was going
    on. (eerie music begins to fade in). All of a sudden, literally, 3 feet in front
    of me. A SHARK FIN APPEARS! All the feeling in my body left and Robert
    and I absolutely froze completely still, we didn’t even breath (Jaws music starts to play). This fin was going right by in front of me. (Pause) Then I realized, (the Jaws music stops)
    it was a String Ray. The String Ray had come up and the tip of
    fin (the upper side of him was facing me and their under side is light), so all I saw was
    a dark tip of a fin and it was a BIG Sting Ray that had come up. I didn’t see the rest of him. And, LET ME TELL YOU WHAT! I mean that scared us to death. We just thought, “Maybe we would back it on
    up a little ways. We didn’t have to be quite that far out where
    the deep water was, we thought we would come back a little ways where we could still kind
    of see the bottom and see what was going on. Even though that was not a shark, it made
    a believer out of us. (A few pictures are shown of the pontoon boat). MAN I AM EXCITED! 21 Subscribers! Countless views! Hundreds
    of views! Kind of gets the old goose bumps a going there. (he make a sound of excitement “woo hoo”). Well alright, man I just want to thank each
    and every one of you for going along on this ride with me and the ride is fixing to get
    wild and crazy. I appreciate it, having fun, and doing what
    you love, we might have some bass pro shop footage. And one more thing, oh yeah (pause), GET YOUR
    QUICK ON! That’s what I say! (smiles and thumbs up)
    (he waves and upbeat country music starts playing as the Bloopers begin). My buddy Robert and I (camera person knocks
    over some metal pieces and makes a huge noise) He says, “thank you Jesus! What we do without the Bloopers! This is my wife Grace! Put the gun down Grace! (Quick Kev is in a book store and is posing
    with his Fishing with Latitude shirt and hat, showing off). (Female voice comes in and asks, “What did
    the frog say to the bird?” Quick Kev says, “What?” She responds, “I don’t know I can’t ‘speaks’
    frog!” He laughs and says, “You can’t even talk, what are you talking about! (music changes to fast banjo) He says Fe Fe Fe, Fe Fe Fe, Phase Four of the Fantastic, (pauses) Furry, (laughs and loses his composure). The, ………..oh no, ………. I didn’t say. Forgets what he is supposed to say. Again, forgets what he was going to say. Quick Kev having fun as Guitarzan. Points at you and says, “Get Your Quick On! That’s what I say!” (Smiles and Thumbs up!)… Sweet acoustic guitar begins to play. Quick Kev now heads to a sweet fishing spot with the birds churping and surrounded by beautiful nature early in
    the morning. (Outro plays with wavy logo and crowd cheering) Working on some more cool stuff, so stay tuned (Jaws music fades in and fades out)

    Forex Channels – How To Draw Trade & Profit for Profitable Trading Decide Overbought Oversold Prices

    August 18, 2019

    let’s talk about channels for a minute
    here we’ve got an upward trend and as we discussed previously we can draw a
    support line which represents a diagonal which is kind of guiding the price and
    the price keeps bouncing off it in its journey to the top now what we’re going
    to do is we’re going to take this diagonal and we’re going to copy it and
    we’re going to put it above the price so there it is it’s got the same angle as
    the first one and it’s sitting on one of the highs of the price so once again as
    you can see here the price is also bouncing off this diagonal as well and
    bouncing downwards the price is kind of moving in a channel or corridor now what
    are we anticipating from the price going forward well right now we are probably
    expecting for the price to bounce off the top border and then to go back up
    this is where we would enter into a buy order so once the price has bounced off
    we would wait for it to hit this bottom border of the channel we would enter
    into buy order and if the price goes in our direction once it hits the top
    border again that’s when we would close our trade so it’s important to note here
    that in an upward channel you it is recommended to trade only buy orders and
    why is that well let’s step take a few steps back for a second at this stage
    we’re anticipating for the price to go down so we could technically conduct a
    sell order but it’s not advisable for two reasons first of all we’d be trading
    against the trend and that’s something we said we shouldn’t do we should always
    trade with the trend and second as you can see here the downward movement is
    actually smaller than the upward movement so in an upward channel if you
    create sell orders you will always earn less than if you create buy orders so
    that’s another reason why an upward channel you should only trade
    by work next we’re going to look at a downward channel so here we got a
    downward trend we can draw a resistance line if we copy that line we can see
    that very often the price will also follow the copied line so it won’t break
    through it will bounce off that line and channels are very common on the forex
    market and you’ll see this from our live training on a real account further down
    in this course so here we’re expecting the price to go up then we’ll conduct a
    sell order and we’ll close our order once the price reaches the opposite side
    of the channel so once again in a downward channel it is advised to open
    sell orders because you would be in this case you’ll be trading with the trend
    and you’ll get longer movements and so those are the two main ways of training
    channels it’s actually one way but in two different types of channels and it’s
    always trading inside the channel and more often than not the price does stay
    in the channel but sooner or later of course the price will break the channel
    and that’s why there’s an alternative strategy where in this case instead of
    opening a sell order you would open a buy order and you would expect the price
    to go somewhere out of the channel you would use this strategy when your other
    analysis is telling you that this channel is getting too old and the price
    is going to break through it so when the channel is quite new there’s more
    chances that the price will stay inside when the channels been around for a
    while the chances of the price breaking out are constantly growing both
    strategies are valid depends on the situation and what your other technical
    analysis tells you so to sum up with channels Direction trade with the
    channel stay inside the channel it’s more likely that the price will bounce
    into the channel there’s an alternative strategy which is a breakthrough
    strategy and that is used when you expect the price to break free from the
    channel all right
