Hi Joey, The season’s winding down in Pigeon Cove. Here’s a one minute slice of life on the waterfront late Sunday afternoon.
Editor’s note: the season is far from over for everyone except the small part timers. We’re actually in the heart of it.

Rapid warming in the Gulf of Maine contributed to the collapse of cod fishing in New England, and might help explain why the cod population has failed to recover, even though fishing has largely ceased, according to a new study.
But the quotas, the study’s authors say, were based on population estimates that did not take into account the temperature changes and therefore were set too high. Even when fishermen stayed within the quotas, they were in effect overfishing, the researchers write in their report, which appears in the Oct. 30 issue of the journal Science.
“The failure to consider temperature impacts on Gulf of Maine cod recruitment created unrealistic expectations for how large this stock can be and how quickly it can rebuild,” the researchers write.

I ran into Lye on the breakwater, he was fishing and enjoying a day off from work. We exchanged our immigration stories of why we came to the USA. His was far more dramatic than my own. I also found that as a Vietnamese Interpreter, I found that his English was far better than my Vietnamese. Lye a naturalized US citizen, like myself, passes on the benefits to his children, for his hard work. We cherish our heritage, but Love America.
