Alarming West Coast Sardine Crash Likely Radiating Through Ecosystem

Before It’s News

More and more Earth Shattering news is appearing daily regarding the Fukushima disaster that goes completely ignored on all Talmud Vision Owned News Outlets. The evidence is over-whelming and hardly a peep about it is mentioned on the Idiot Box.
Scary – The commercial sardine fishery, with a wholesale value of about $32 million, has mysteriously collapsed on the west coast of B.C. The seine fleet has been unable to find a single fish.

ENE News reports the following..

Captain Corbin Hanson, Southern California, Jan. 5, 2014: [He was] growing more desperate as the night wore on. After 12 hours and $1,000 worth of fuel, [they] returned to port without a single fish. “Tonight’s pretty reflective of how things have been going […] Not very well.” […] If his crew catches sardines these days, they are larger, older fish […] Largely absent are the small and valuable young fish […] the voice of another boat captain lamented over the radio, “I haven’t seen a scratch.” […] By daybreak, Hanson was piloting the hulking boat back to the docks with nothing in its holds.

  • West Coast sardine crash could radiate throughout ecosystem
  • [T]he biggest sardine crash in generations
  • [S]cientists say the effects are probably radiating throughout the ecosystem, starving brown pelicans, sea lions and other predators
  • [E]xperts warn the West Coast’s marine mammals, seabirds and fishermen could suffer for years

  • Scarcity of prey is the leading theory behind the 1,600 malnourished sea lion pups that washed up along beaches from Santa Barbara to San Diego in early 2013, said Sharon Melin, a wildlife biologist at the National Marine Fisheries Service
  • Biologists also suspect the drop is hurting brown pelicans [which] have shown signs of starvation and have largely failed to breed or rear chicks there since 2010
  • Normally, pelicans and sea lions would adapt by instead gobbling up anchovies […] aside from an unusual boom in Monterey Bay, anchovy numbers are depressed too


My heart aches realizing the total devastation TPTB have done to our beautiful planet and it is clear they could give a Rat’s Arse what they kill, pollute, and destroy for generations to come.

Reading such horrific news daily that is never coveredon TV really stresses me out.. Because so many are detached from reality and only believe “IT” if it is said to them from TV. It is as if they have been brain washed and even mentioning of the Words “Conspiracy Theory” gets you ridiculed. MSM has deliberately created such a negative stigma to those words that you are immediately labeled a Tin-Foil Hat loon.
If only we had actual Journalism.. *SIGH*

How can so many people forget the many “Once Theories” that are now Documented FACT?

Re-Posted w/Permission (The Vancouver Sun)

A $32-million commercial fishery has inexplicably and completely collapsed this year on the B.C. coast.

The sardine seine fleet has gone home after failing to catch a single fish. And the commercial disappearance of the small schooling fish is having repercussions all the way up the food chain to threatened humpback whales.

Jim Darling, a Tofino-based whale biologist with the Pacific Wildlife Foundation, said in an interview Monday that humpbacks typically number in the hundreds near the west coast of Vancouver Island in summer. They were observed only sporadically this year, including by the commercial whale-watching industry.

“Humpbacks are telling us that something has changed,” he said. “Ocean systems are so complex, it’s really hard to know what it means. For one year, I don’t think there’s any reason to be alarmed, but there is certainly reason to be curious.”

Humpbacks instead were observed farther offshore, possibly feeding on alternative food sources such as herring, sandlance, anchovies, or krill, but not in the numbers observed near shore in recent years.

The sardine, also known as pilchard, has a uniquely fascinating history.

Sardines supported a major fishery on the B.C. coast in the mid-1920s to mid-1940s that averaged 40,000 tonnes a year.

Then the fish mysteriously disappeared — for decades — until the first one was observed again in 1992 during a federal science-based fishery at Barkley Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

With the re-emergence of the sardines came the humpbacks, around 1995, becoming so numerous in coastal waters off Vancouver Island that they supplanted grey whales as the star attraction of the whale-watching industry.

Peter Schultze, a senior guide and driver with Ocean Outfitters, said humpbacks are normally found seven to 10 kilometres or closer to shore, but this year were about 18 to 32 kilometres out. That meant for more travel time and fuel burned and less time with the humpbacks, if they were observed at all. “There were a lot of days where people got skunked.”

Overfishing had long been blamed for the disappearance of sardines from B.C. waters. But scientists today attribute the overriding cause to changes in ocean conditions that proved unfavourable to sardines.

B.C. started commercial fishing for sardines in 2002, and in 2013 had an allowable catch of about 25,000 tonnes, which compares with a total estimated population of 659,000 tonnes.

“This year was unexpected,” said Lisa Mijacika, a resource manager with Fisheries and Oceans Canada in Vancouver, noting fishing did take place in California and Oregon. “They are a migratory fish heavily influenced by ocean conditions.”

Scientists from Canada, the U.S., and Mexico will meet in December to try to find answers to the sardine’s movements.

There are now 50 B.C. commercial sardine licences, half held by First Nations.

The fishery normally operates from July to November, but not this year.

“They’ve given up looking, pulled the plug,” confirmed Lorne Clayton, executive-director of the Canadian Pacific Sardine Association. “It certainly was disappointing. It’s cost them time, fuel, and crew to go out and look, with no compensation.”

While seiners fishing close to the surface got skunked, he noted that commercial hake fishermen with trawl nets at depths of 200 to 350 metres reported catching hake “filled with sardines,” Clayton said.

“I think they didn’t come to the surface this year. Right now, it’s all speculation.”

Darling said that doesn’t explain the sudden change in humpback behaviour off the island. “If sardines were there in any number, you’d think the whales would have figured that out,” he said. “I don’t think anyone really has a bead on what’s going on.”

Clayton said the B.C. sardine fishery has a wholesale value of about $32 million, with the fish going into the canned market, as well as for reduction and oil. The loss of the fishery this year could have repercussions for next.

“Not only does it affect their livelihood but it puts a hole in the marketplace,” he said. Even if sardines come back next season, “you may have to claw your way back into the marketplace.”

Clayton said that ocean temperatures tides, plankton and light are all factors that could be influencing the sardines.

“In a given year, fishermen have to search them out to go fishing. They don’t just arrive at your boat.”

He noted that the sardine fishery also collapsed this year in South Africa. “They disappeared entirely with no evidence at all.”

Darling said society should question whether the greater value of sardines is as prey for natural predators in the ocean, including the humpbacks upon which the whale-watching industry depends so heavily.

“Would it not make sense to leave the fish that are driving the whole system and supporting virtually everything? There are some important questions to be asked about the sardine fishery.”

  1. Conspiracy theory on the Fukishima tsunami is it was caused by the HAARP weapon where a footprint similar to what the HAARP weapon leaves was found approximately 150 miles off the Japan shoreline……The same base theory was implied about the typhoon that recently struck the Philippines & its’ round was documented to the minute as guided & magnitude created by HAARP……All these supposed theories have a real habit of coming true after the realism is to late…….It’s time to wake up & realize the world Globalists are Evilists & have been doing the same thing to humanity for hundreds & actually thousands of years!!! Its simplicity’s almost comical, turn the Persecuted into the Persecutors…….Don’t slack up in all our quest for Liberty, Freedom, Justice & Truth
