Coast Guard, Maryland Natural Resource Police promote safe boating practices
The Coast Guard and Maryland Natural Resource Police partnered with Maryland coastal businesses to help spread safe boating messages and tips, May 29, 2018. Being safe on the water is always paramount, but as the summer heats up, it is an important reminder to have safety equipment, like life jackets, and not boating under the influence.

The High Road: Berkshire Natural Resources Council
Inspired by the Coast to Coast trail in England or the Camino de Santiago in Spain, Berkshire Natural Resources Council is acting on a vision to create a completely hike-able Berkshires. That means you can hike to a cafe in a village and then walk to a bed and breakfast to stay the night. The Council is working to keep land to connect to a network of trails for continued use throughout the Berkshires.
Coastal Resource Assessments 2015
GoPro footage from a week's worth of assessments in Las Tres Islas (Conception, Corcuera, & Banton), the most remote island municipalities in the province of Romblon, Philippines. The assessments revealed some of the best coral reef, mangrove, and seagrass habitats in the country but also threats from crown-of-thorns, coral bleaching, and overfishing. The next steps for sustaining these resources include crown-of-thorns removal and improvements to the management plans for existing protected areas.

Catchment to Coast
This is a short video to explain some of the work being done on the Catchment to Coast project by staff at Natural Resources Kangaroo Island (NRKI) to improve the local environment. The Catchment to Coast project seeks to improve water quality in the Cygnet River, arrest the decline and promote the regeneration of seagrass beds in Western Cove, and reduce soil erosion and fertiliser runoff, leading to production benefits. The project recognises the links between these actions and improving the health of marine ecosystems in Nepean Bay.

Pakistan: Richest Country in Natural Resources. See How Rich is Pakistan in Natural Resources Follow us on http://offensivemilitary.blogspot.com/ www.www.facebook.com/pakistanaffairs2017 www.twitter.com/pakistanaffairz Pakistan is Rich in Natural Resources There is no denying the fact that Pakistan is one of the richest countries in terms of natural resources and its immense geo-strategic potential. The country's abundant wealth of resources including that of energy, agriculture, minerals, population, and geography needs no explanation, but unlike the developed countries, these have not been properly utilised due to poor management. This dismal situation is caused due to several flaws which have led to poor governance of country since its inception except some brief periods of economic prosperity. Prevalent political rivalry and instability, worsening law and order situation and rampant corruption have led to resource development impasse. A broader overview of geographic position of Pakistan reveals that it is located in South Asia and has 650 miles of coastline on the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman. The west is bordered by Afghanistan and Iran. India is to the east and China in the far northeast. The country is strategically located between South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Our country is bestowed with some of the best soil resources, for instance, natural gas, oil, hydro power potential, coal, iron, copper, salt, and limestone and so on. Our farmers produce wheat, cotton, rice, sugarcane, eggs, fruit and vegetables. We have large cattle farms which produce meat and milk in abundance. Primary industry includes textiles, food processing, pharmaceuticals, construction materials, fertilizer, and paper products. Major exports comprise textile products, rice, leather goods, sports goods, carpets, rugs, and chemicals. Pakistan imports petroleum, machinery, plastic, edible oil, iron, steel, tea, and paper. Coal reserves are estimated at 175 billion tons. This would equate to 618 billion barrels of crude oil. When compared to oil reserves this is more than twice the amount of the top four countries. Natural gas production is at a high level in Pakistan. Estimated reserves are 885.3 billion cubic meters (as of January 2009). Gas fields are expected to last for another 20 years. The Sui gas field is the largest, accounting for 26% of Pakistan's gas production. Daily production is 19 million cubic meters a day. Under the barren mountains of Balochistan and hot sands of Sindh, there is unlimited amount of oil and gas reserves not touched yet. And still further, we have fertile lands of Punjab, ready to feed a population twice as big as we are now, the best irrigation system (waiting for more water reservoirs to enrich it), and the best quality cotton and rice. Balochistan is a mountainous desert area, consisting of 3.5 lakh sq. kms. It borders Iran, Afghanistan and its Southern Boundary is the Arabian Sea with strategically important port of Gwadar on the Makran Coast, commanding approach to the Strait of Hormuz. Its total population is 7.5 million. Balochistan occupies 43.6 percent of Pakistan's total area and is least populated. Gwadar is an important district of Balochistan, having 600 Kilometres long border. Until 1958, it had been a part of the State of Oman. On December 1958, Pakistan bought it with an amount of 550 million Rupees. It was suggested as a suitable site for port in 1964 and thus in 2002, the construction of the port was initiated with the help of China. The Gwadar Port, being the third largest port of the world, is situated at the doorway of the Persian Gulf (180 nautical miles from the Strait of Hormuz through which 40% of World's Oil passes) and at the largest trade route of the world. It is due to this fact that makes it geo-strategically more important to the world powers. Rickodek, the part of Chagi (Tehsil of Balochistan), means “Hillock of Gold. Pakistan and International media has highlighted a new discussion on 'Rickodek'. It is the world's 4th largest deposit of gold and copper. It has been discovered that the mountains of Balochistan are filled up with much costly reservoirs of mineral. Nevertheless, it has also been proved that the gold and copper reserves of about $260 billion are buried under the Rickodek. But it is very unfortunate that Pakistan is dependent upon foreign companies for exploring, mining, surveying and refining of our natural wealth. Balochistan has been divided among Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. It has been overlooked since the times of the British Rulers. It is that part of Pakistan that consists of different linguistic and ethnic groups Pakistani leadership must focus on exploration of natural resources and their scientific management. Properly managed natural resources can play a vital role in national growth. Extensive geological survey is required to discover the resource potential.

Coast to Coast AM June 18, 2018. In the first half, retired professor of Climatology and now Chairman of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project, Tim Ball discussed how climate data has been manipulated and politicized. Instead of global warming, we're actually in a cooling trend, he contended, and in America, the 1930s were much warmer than the 1990s. To put things in perspective, he continued, if you look at the last 12,000 years, about 95-96% of the time was hotter than it is today, and what we've been experiencing is just natural variability.

Coast to Coast AM March 16, 2017. Retired professor of climatology and now Chairman of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project, Dr. Tim Ball, contends that climate data has been manipulated, and climate issues have focused on faulty computer modeling rather than empirical data. In a scientific debate that's become politicized, those who believe climate change/global warming is the result of man-made causes such as increased C02, accuse Ball of being a "climate change denier." But when people find out the extent to which they've been deliberately deceived on these issues, such as when data has been fabricated or altered, "then, the credibility of science is going to go out the window," he commented.

Renegades Risks and Rewards of the Napali Coast HD
Renegades, Risks and Rewards of the Napali Coast” TV Special Highlights Efforts State Parks & Enforcement Divisions Continue Focus Repeated sweeps of the Kalalau Section of the famed Napali Coast State Wilderness Park on Kauai since the first of the year, have resulted in 104 people receiving citations for unpermitted presence in the area. One man was arrested for four different violations. Under State law, only people with camping permits from the DLNR Division of State Parks can travel beyond Hanakapiai Stream, at the two-mile mark of the 11-mile-long trail. “Under my administration the DLNR Division of Conservation & Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) and the DLNR Division of State Parks are working closely together to bring Kalalau closer to its true wilderness character,” said DLNR Chair Suzanne Case. “It’s discouraging to see the illegals disrespect the ‘aina and impact cultural sites by supporting a higher number of people than the park can sustain. We want to be on the record that DLNR is serious about shutting down commercial activity which has allowed illegal campers to bring in hundreds of tons of rubbish to be simply left at Kalalau for staff to clean up and dispose of. Kalalau should be a true wilderness experience” Case added. Over the past nine months, DLNR has documented the Kalalau law enforcement sweeps of the illegal activity, in addition to the regular clean-up operations conducted with costly helicopter support for State Park staff. Video tape of these activities has resulted in the production of a one-half hour television special: “Renegades, Risks, and Rewards of the Napali Coast.” It debuts on KFVE-TV (K5) on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. with a repeat on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. KFVE General Manager, John Fink, said, “We are pleased to be able to join with DLNR in providing this important show about both safety for outdoor enthusiasts and respect for our ‘aina”. The program shows officers interacting with legal and illegal campers, many of whom were cited or arrested. It also depicts the tremendous effort and costs involved in airlifting thousands of tons of trash and human waste from the wilderness park each year. In the “risk” segment, viewers will learn about some of the dangers facing the unprepared or over-confident Napali visitor. Curt Cottrell, the administrator of the DLNR Division of State Parks, said, “There are few places in Hawaii that contain the unique and stunning natural and cultural features as those found in Kalalau and along the greater Napali Coast. The dramatic rain sculpted cliffs and the pockets of white sand beaches are likely some of the most highly photographed and promoted landscapes on the planet. Our kuleana, (responsibility) is to muster the resources to ensure that Kalalau is preserved and that people, either hiking in, viewing it from the ocean in a tour boat or on a kayak, or simply flying overhead in a helicopter see this park as a wilderness with a rich cultural history, and not one marred by trash, overuse, illegal activity, or simply bad behavior.” In the first quarter of 2016 State Parks maintenance crews gathered, bagged, and airlifted more than four tons of rubbish out of the park. In addition they shoveled 2,400 pounds of human waste from composting toilets into six large barrels that were also flown out of Kalalau. The remoteness of the Napali Coast creates a special set of challenges for both maintenance crews and conservation officers. DOCARE Chief Thomas Friel, commented, “In a perfect world we would have a 24-7 law enforcement presence at Kalalau, but given the logistics and expense involved, that’s not reasonable. What we can tell those – who in many cases have been operating illegal commercial operations at Kalalau for years – we know who you are and it’s just a matter of time before you are cited or arrested. Not only are you breaking the law but you are possibly putting your life and the lives of your clients at risk.” During filming of the TV special, DLNR recorded several jet ski operators bringing passengers and their stuff onto Kalalau Beach during extremely high winter surf. Passengers report paying the drivers between $125-$150 for a lift to or from the beach. Renegades, Risks & Rewards of the Napali Coast will be posted in its entirety to DLNR web and social media pages after its initial airing Saturday night on K5. The television station will also provide a link to the show on its website.

Sea Level Rise: Planning Scenarios for Delaware
The Delaware Geological Survey (DGS), based at the University of Delaware, and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Delaware Coastal Programs have released a new report updating sea-level rise planning scenarios for the state of Delaware. The 2017 report, which replaces a previous report from 2009, recommends planning scenarios that incorporate sea-level rise increases of 0.52 meters (1.71 feet), 0.99 meters (3.25 feet) and 1.53 meters (5.02 feet) by the year 2100. The projections are based on recent national and international assessments and academic research and represent different levels of potential sea-level rise for state agencies to consider when planning long-term activities.

Protection of Coastal Ecosystems and Marine Resource Management: Dr Kathryn McMahon, ECU
Dr Kathryn McMahon, Research Fellow in the School of Natural Sciences at Edith Cowan University (ECU), presents on ECU's Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) sub-project focusing on the Protection of Coastal Ecosystems and Marine Resource Management. This project involves ECU's Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research (CMER). Dr McMahon beings the presentation with a overview of the importance of protecting coastal ecosystems and improving our understanding of coastal ecosystems for management. Marine ecosystems have some of the most important ecosystems services to humankind, they: - protect our coastlists - provide food and habitat for humans and other organisms - cycle nutrients and control pollutions Dr McMahon describes a study undertaken 10 years ago that attempted to assess the monetary value of these intrinsic ecosystem services. The study found coastal ecosystems contributed $11 Trillion USD per year through the natural processes they provide - this figure was equivalent to the estimates for all the terrestrial ecosystems and, at the time, was just slightly less than the global Gross National Product (GNP). From this, Dr McMahon explains it is clear natural services provided by coastal ecosystems are really important, and they also benefit health and wellbeing of humans. However, globally these coastal ecosystems are degraded, with the rate they are being degraded increasing. One of the main reason for the degradation is that most humans live on the coastline. In Australia ~85% of the population live on the coastline. Additionally all our activities affect the coastline, causing issues like: - loss of habitats - over extraction of fisheries - nutrient enrichment and algal blooms To manage coastal ecosystems effectively, Dr McMahon suggests it is important to understand what they comprise and what natural services they provide. For example, an understanding of species and habitats that are significant to a coastal ecosystem, their physical location within the ecosystem, how they vary over time and how they interact are crucial to designing a marine park in the area and deciding where different protection areas will be located. This understanding is important, given key environmental factors will influence dynamics within those ecosystems. This ECU-led CRN sub-project will focus on how habitats are connected, using a variety of approaches to investigate this. The sub-project plans to: - explore how energy moves from one habitat to another - use genetic techniques to assess the connectivity of populations - looking at the role of wave energy, how it structures systems and influences connectivity ECU is partnered with the University of Western Australia for this CRN project. The Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) program is part of a suite of initiatives established by the Australian Government to reform higher education teaching, learning, research and research training. The focus of the program is on quality and excellence, collaboration, sustainability, and end-user engagement; leading to a more productive and effective university system. The CRN led by Edith Cowan University (ECU), focuses on growing research excellence at Edith Cowan University through partnership and engagement. For more information about the Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) at ECU: http://www.research.ecu.edu.au/ori/crn/ There are scholarships available for Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students to undertake postgraduate research in CRN project areas, for more information: http://www.ecu.edu.au/scholarships/scholarships-by-pathways/higher-degree-by-research/details/collaborative-research-networks-crn-program
The Plan for Opportunity
The way of life in the Mississippi Gulf Coast is intertwined with water and the environment. Protecting the natural resources of the coast is paramount to the health of the region's economy and its residents. The Plan for Opportunity is a three year collaborative planning project led by the Gulf Regional Planning Commission (GRPC). Its purpose is to make the Mississippi Gulf Coast a more sustainable and prosperous region by enhancing regional coordination. Funded by the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, the Plan evaluated six topic areas including food, housing, the economy, transportation and land use, water, and resiliency. An extensive public involvement effort was undertaken throughout the planning process. The Plan includes strategies and recommendations that can be implemented at a regional or local level. For the Plan for Opportunity recommendations to be effective, it is critical to work together. Once adopted, the Plan will lead to a more unified and cohesive region working together as One Coast.

Fossil fuels and fish in a resource colony
Canada and British Columbia continue to act like resource colonies supplying the world with raw resources. It has not always been like that we once had bustling coastal and rural communities that refined natural resources, adding value and manufacturing made in British Columbia products. So, while we chase Kinder Morgan to the bottom of the bitumen barrel, we find out that we have privatized our Pacific fisheries. I canvassed these shocking issues in Question Period [Transcript] A. Olsen:  We have the opportunity to build one of the most innovative and successful 21st-century economies of any jurisdiction in the world, yet some would have us chase Kinder Morgan to the bottom of the barrel. Aside from the risk it poses to our coastline, the Kinder Morgan pipeline does almost nothing to build sustainable, well-paying jobs in our province. Frankly, our province would be better off addressing the challenges facing other industries, such as the fisheries industry. Once-vibrant coastal communities that hummed with activity are increasingly shuttered. The jobs have moved out of these communities. In many cases, they've moved right out of our country. In 1985, the coastal fisheries employed 20,000 people in B.C. By 2015, that had fallen to 5,000. At the heart of this issue is the system of the individual transferrable quota that many in this industry have said privatized our natural resource. The quotas are now more valuable than the fish. My question is for the Minister of Agriculture. The maritime provinces have engaged the federal government in a process to transition away from the individual transferrable quotas. When will B.C. be doing the same? Hon. L. Popham:  Thank you to the member for the question. I know the member understands that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is responsible for maintaining and sustaining sustainable harvests on behalf of British Columbians, as well as Canada. We are glad to be hearing about the federal changes to the Fisheries Act. But we're also doing our job, making sure that B.C. is represented at the table. We've been working hard at that. As well, we sponsored the Fisheries for Communities Gathering this year. We sponsored it for $40,000. This was a place where people from all of our communities throughout our coast could get together and talk about what they want when they think about B.C. fisheries. We also sponsored a B.C. Young Fishermen's Gathering, which brought together 50 young fishers from across the province and talked about their future in the fisheries industry. This is an investment in our future, but it's very, very important that we represent B.C.'s view at the federal table, and we've been doing that. Mr. Speaker:  Saanich North and the Islands on a supplemental. A. Olsen:  The vision of a 21st-century economy cannot just be urban-centric. We need to talk about the opportunities we've had in this province to create good, well-paying employment that harnesses our resources and the natural innovation of British Columbians. The future for the natural resource industry and countless communities right across our province lies in adding value, not just simply exporting raw product. We're currently doing the opposite. Last week at the wild salmon forum I hosted in Vancouver, I was told that a large Chinese company recently purchased over $50 million worth of these individual transferrable quotas in British Columbia. The fish are harvested here, sent to Asia for processing and packaging and then shipped back to us. The minister said that we trust DFO to manage a sustainable fishery. The people that I met with have got serious questions about that. DFO is missing in action on the west coast. We need our provincial government to be a champion for this industry locally. My question, again, is for the Minister of Agriculture. There is an absence of federal leadership. Will this government stand up for British Columbia by facilitating an independent review of our quota licensing system? Hon. L. Popham: Again, thanks for the question. I know the member is passionate about this issue, and I can assure the member that so are we. Our ministry has provided insight and specific west coast perspective to the discussion around the proposed changes to the Fisheries Act. We have to keep up the pressure from our side, and we are doing that. The Ecotrust report that came out of the conference in January…. This report had action items specific for the federal Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. Some of these were specifically around how social, economic and cultural objectives are to be achieved in the Pacific region fisheries. We have to be at the table representing the communities that want strong fisheries. We're doing that. But I think that the member also knows that as we navigate and try and work with the federal government, it's very important to recognize that they hold most of the cards. What our job is, is to represent B.C. at that table.

California and its Natural Resources circa 1950 US Bureau of Mines
more at http://news.quickfound.net/cities/los_angeles.html Overview-summary of California natural resources as of 1950. Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California ...Flora and fauna California boasts several superlatives in its collection of flora: the largest trees, the tallest trees, and the oldest trees. California's native grasses are perennial plants. After European contact, these were generally replaced by invasive species of European annual grasses; and, in modern times, California's hills turn a characteristic golden-brown in summer. Because California has the greatest diversity of climate and terrain, the state has six life zones which are the lower Sonoran (desert); upper Sonoran (foothill regions and some coastal lands), transition (coastal areas and moist northeastern counties); and the Canadian, Hudsonian, and Arctic Zones, comprising the state's highest elevations. Plant life in the dry climate of the lower Sonoran zone contains a diversity of native cactus, mesquite, and paloverde. The Joshua tree is found in the Mojave Desert. Flowering plants include the dwarf desert poppy and a variety of asters. Fremont cottonwood and valley oak thrive in the Central Valley. The upper Sonoran zone includes the chaparral belt, characterized by forests of small shrubs, stunted trees, and herbaceous plants. Nemophila, mint, Phacelia, Viola, and the California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) – the state flower – also flourish in this zone, along with the lupine, more species of which occur here than anywhere else in the world. The transition zone includes most of California's forests with the redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and the "big tree" or giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum), among the oldest living things on earth (some are said to have lived at least 4,000 years). Tanbark oak, California laurel, sugar pine, madrona, broad-leaved maple, and Douglas-fir also grow here... The high elevations of the Canadian zone allow the Jeffrey pine, red fir, and lodgepole pine to thrive. Brushy areas are abundant with dwarf manzanita and ceanothus; the unique Sierra puffball is also found here. Right below the timeberline, in the Hudsonian zone, the whitebark, foxtail, and silver pines grow. At about 10,500 feet (3,200 m), begins the Arctic zone, a treeless region whose flora include a number of wildflowers, including Sierra primrose, yellow columbine, alpine buttercup, and alpine shooting star... In the deserts of the lower Sonoran zone, the mammals include the jackrabbit, kangaroo rat, squirrel, and opossum. Common birds include the owl, roadrunner, cactus wren, and various species of hawk. The area's reptilian life include the sidewinder viper, desert tortoise, and horned toad. The upper Sonoran zone boasts mammals such as the antelope, brown-footed woodrat, and ring-tailed cat. Birds unique to this zone are the California thrasher, bushtit, and California condor. In the transition zone, there are Colombian black-tailed deer, black bears, gray foxes, cougars, bobcats, and Roosevelt elk. Reptiles such as the garter snakes and rattlesnakes inhabit the zone. In addition, amphibians such as the water puppy and redwood salamander are common too. Birds such as the kingfisher, chickadee, towhee, and hummingbird thrive here as well. The Canadian zone mammals include the mountain weasel, snowshoe hare, and several species of chipmunks. Conspicuous birds include the blue-fronted jay, Sierra chickadee. Sierra hermit thrush, water ouzel, and Townsend's solitaire. As one ascends into the Hudsonian zone, birds become scarcer. While the Sierra rosy finch is the only bird native to the high Arctic region, other bird species such as the hummingbird and Clark's nutcracker. Principal mammals found in this region include the Sierra coney, white-tailed jackrabbit, and the bighorn sheep. As of April 2003, the bighorn sheep was listed as endangered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The fauna found throughout several zones are the mule deer, coyote, mountain lion, northern flicker, and several species of hawk and sparrow. Aquatic life in California thrives, from the state's mountain lakes and streams to the rocky Pacific coastline... As of April 2003, 118 California animals were on the federal endangered list; 181 plants were listed as endangered or threatened...

Diving and snorkelling mecca Ewens Ponds in South Australia’s Limestone Coast closes for Spring
Ewens Ponds in the South East of South Australia is a diving and snorkelling chain of ponds. Steve Clarke from Natural Resources South East explains why these ponds are so important to the Limestone Coast, and why they must be protected. During the three month break Steve and his team are completing underwater revegetation by planting Triglochin that has been grown in a nursery. Using hessian bags weighed down with limestone the plants drop to the pond floor where they will hopefully grow. Nearby Piccaninnie Ponds remains open throughout the year, so divers and snorkelers have other options, but note that permits are required. Ewens Ponds opens again to divers and snorkelers on 4 December 2017.

Natural Resources fishing | fish adventure N Eating
Natural Resources fishing | fish adventure N Eating Fishing Gear any form of equipment, implement, tool or mechanical device used to catch, collect or harvest fish. Fishermen in many parts of Bangladesh catch fish with their hands. In rural areas, in seasonal waters or beels, during winter, people can be usually seen fishing with different traditional gears while some even do so without any gear. The principal categories of fishing gears that are traditionally used in Bangladesh can be enumerated as the following: Wounding gears Such gears are spears that are thrust, thrown or discharged. The following are the traditional wounding gears: Ek Kata; Tekata I; Tekata II; Anchda; and Koch. Fishing by poisoning and explosives Sporadic reports have been filed on fishing by poisoning with certain chemicals in some areas of the sundarbans. This practice, however, is not permissible by law. #Subscribe_This_Channel_For_More_videos Cast Net Line fishing Long lines in both freshwaters and in seawater, use of Bodshi and Charee in angling rods, single lines floated in rural rice fields and beels, etc, are typical line fishing methods used in Bangladesh. In line fishing the fish is usually attracted by a natural or artificial bait. Traps Different traps made of bamboo sticks are used widely in rural Bangladesh. These are of various shaped chambers essentially having contrivances for the fishes to enter. Escape is prevented by automatic labyrinths or retarding devices. In rural Bangladesh during rainy season when there are floods people use these traps. Different traps seen in different parts of the country are Icber Chai; Bega; Duba Fund; Darkee; Unta; Tepai; Dheal; Cheng; Chari; Chandi Bair; Bana; Polo; Raboni; Anga; and Charo. Nets On the basis of shape and size, and size of mesh, location of setting in the water, and the way they are used, nets are classified broadly into the following categories: Bag net- Kept vertically open by a frame and held horizontally stretched by the water current. They can be kept set in water against the water current, as for example Behundi net and Sabadh net, Nets of similar shape but smaller in size are dredged and towed with the hand. Moiya Jal Drag net/push net- These nets are held apart with triangular bamboo frame and pushed manually. They are used in fishing in the traditional waters of beels and floodplains, locally called Thela Jal and Moiya Jal. Trawl nets are also a type of drag net. Seine net- This type of net has very long wings and a towing rope. The nets are of various lengths and come with or without bags for catching and are locally called Bedh Jal. If the size is too big, it is called Jagot Bedh. The size of the mesh depends upon the size of the fish to be caught. Cast net- a common net in Bangladesh; it is round-shaped when thrown to fully open and has got weights in the form of iron balls along a string set at the outer edge of the net. It is operated manually and used mainly in the shallows of ponds, beels, estuaries and in the coast. Lift net- The common shape is square and it is fitted with two bamboo strips arranged in cross-bars and connected at the four corners of the net. The arranged crossbars with the net is then attached with another lever for lifting the net from out of the water. The net is mostly hand-operated and portable. The net is locally called Dharma Jal. Sometimes the size could be made bigger and fixed at some strategic water areas eg Khoda Jal and Konaghar Jal. Falling net- are of various sizes and shapes depending upon the habitat where they are used and on the type of fish to be caught. A type is mainly seen in northern Bangladesh which is a bigger version of the cast net locally called Othedh Jal. The twine used for this net is heavier and the mesh is also bigger than ordinary mesh. The weights used are heavier too. This net is used to catch fish from the deeps of rivers. About 5-10 people swim and carry the net, spread it out and help it to fall in the desired location of a water body. After setting the net, fishermen wait for hours. Then they start diving in the water to catch the fish. Sometimes they bring fish out of the net or they entangle the fishes with net and leave them there before pulling the net out. Another type of falling net, locally called Chhabi Jal, is used in shallow water; it is made with nylon net and rope. . The other type of falling net is called Chak Jal. It is mainly used in rivers and beels during winter months. Gill net- Commonly seen in rural areas and used in rivers, flood plains and rice fields, Gill net is cast in shallow or deeper waters of rivers or beels. The local name is Fansh Jal. A type of this net, commonly seen in floodplains and rice fields, is locally called Koi Jal because it is generally used to catch koi and some other similar fishes . [Bengali Fish]

Kigombe Coastal Resources Management
Sand County Foundation - Tanzania is supporting the formation of a coastal community network, linking fishers with other fishers and coastal managers along Tanzania'a 800 km coastline. The Foundation aims to promote sustainable management practices by exploring current livelihood challenges, as well as the innovations and coping strategies that have been adopted by coastal villagers. Sand County Foundation's coastal communications network, initiated in October 2010, explores village resilience strategies and co-management uptake, using participatory video. Villagers are trained in the skills of using cameras, tripods, and microphones, planning a storyboard, interviewing, filming, and editing. In this way, they examine the issues and document their own stories. The village of Kigombe, on the northern coast of Tanzania, produced two films about natural resources management and their achievements in response to the challenges faced. These films will be shared with other villages and coastal stakeholders to promote dialogue and the exchange of ideas. For more information: www.sandcounty.net/international
