Daughter and Dad, Chasing Salmon in Upstate New York
Nov. 8, 2019 | The New York Times | By Ali Watkins.

If fishing requires luck, salmon fishing takes twice as much. By the time they begin their trip inland to spawn, the salmon are no longer eating. Bait is useless. Instead, a hopeful fisher must scan the waterways, look for a stray fin and cast, hoping to land their tiny hook on a fish or annoy one so much that it strikes.

Autumn anglers in these waterways are treated to double the odds. As the salmon run wanes, it is followed by a flood of steelhead trout making their own biannual trek to spawn upriver, feeding on the flesh of dying salmon as they go.......To partake in the endeavor requires a small investment. A state license can be purchased for a single day, a week or a year, and in-state residents can get a seven-day permit for $12, purchased online or at any of the town’s tackle shops. Fly fishing is most popular, but few tackle shops in the area rent gear. The better option, for hobbyists, is to book a trip with any of the region’s various guides, easily scheduled in Pulaski.

Chinese Taste for Fish Upsets Seas -
December 27, 2012 | WSJ | By CHUIN-WEI YAP And SAMEER MOHINDRU. China's Hunger for Fish Upsets Seas
Reach of Massive Fleet Cuts Into Stock, Tests Ties on Opposite Side of the World/

The territorial issues and environmental concerns echo the tensions China has faced in a number of industries, from energy to mining to agriculture, as it looks for raw materials to feed its growth. China has moved aggressively in recent years to purchase resources abroad to bolster its energy, minerals and food security, adding needed investment to increase global supplies but raising worries in Washington and elsewhere about China's sway.

China's hunger is growing at a time when around 87% of global fisheries are seen to be at full exploitation, overexploited, or depleted, according to the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization. China like other nations has signed international agreements that allow it to fish in global waters, and some fishing experts have praised Beijing for beefing up its statistics on fishing in some areas and for raising more fish in domestic farms.

A Bestselling Author Fishes in Endangered Territory:A Meal Tinged With Sadness and Thanks
July 5, 2012 | NYT | By PAUL GREENBERG.

Late June and early July mark the peak of the biggest run of wild salmon left in the world. The sockeye salmon migration of Bristol Bay, Alaska, can number more than 40 million fish, and the commercial fishing industry in the region is worth more than $400 million. During this peak salmon period, Paul Greenberg, author of the New York Times bestseller “Four Fish,” will be blogging remotely via satellite as he travels down the Stuyahok River with the Alaska outfitter Mark Rutherford. This year’s fishing trip is particularly relevant. At present the Environmental Protection Agency is weighing whether to prevent the permitting of a 10 billion-ton copper and gold mine in this remote sensitive area, something many fishermen fear could spell the end of this magnificent run. —Mark Bittman

5 seafood menu items that are harming the ocean
September/October 2009 | This Magazine | by Emily Hunter.

The commercial fishing industry is costing us more than just the price of our seafood platters. With seafood consumption at a record 16.7 kilogram per person, our appetite for fish is putting the entire ocean ecosystem at risk. But the seas aren’t the only thing in danger. We humans depend on those waters for food, income, and even our air. This is how our love of seafood is threatening ourselves as well as our blue planet.
