Bluefin Tuna Rod Fishing

The boat Lap ’Lapurdi‘ ’from the fishing port of St Jean de Luz / Ciboure started its bluefin tuna fishing campaign in June. Due to very supervised and supervised fishing quotas, he is only allowed to fish 16 Tons of tuna. This traditional and artisanal form of rod fishing is however resource-conscious and is by nature a thousand miles from that practiced by French or foreign pelagic trawlers. The fishing technique is as follows: Small reel rods are first used, with a simple lure at the end of the line, a moving boat spinning offshore to test if there are tuna in the area. Then using a sonar, but above all by observing the surface of the sea with the naked eye to detect movements of tuna close to the surface. If they are spotted, the boat stops and uses one or more rods with live bait at the end of the hook (small horse mackerel or anchovies).

Ama free diving women in Japan

Beyond their extraordinary performances, it is an admirable way of life which is particularly respectful of the environment which is threatened with disappearance. Formerly a pearl fisherman, they now dive for abalone and other shellfish. Originally, diving clothes did not exist and the "women of the sea" dived almost naked, then covered with a white cotton supposed to keep sharks away (1920), and finally in a neoprene suit (1960). Between 1960 and 1965, the quantity of abalone caught was multiplied by three. Today, they are increasingly rare despite restrictions on the fishing period and minimum size. Is it the fault of global warming?
