Condolences from Homer Alaska For Heavy D’s Family and Friends

Dear Joe,

I was saddened to learn of Heavy D’s death, the news of which just reached us yesterday.


I hope you will convey the condolences of our Homer fishing community here in Alaska to his family and friends.


The wide waters of the oceans

Wrap the world around

And the strong embraces

Of Brother Fishermen reach every small dock.

We will lay a wreath and say our prayers here at our Seafarer’s Memorial on Homer Spit in Kachemak Bay, where my brother-in-law and several dear crewmen are remembered.

With our continued wishes,


Geo Beach

Video: End of the Season By Leslie Heffron

Cod’s Continuing Decline Linked to Warming Gulf of Maine Waters


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.
