Island in distress

Bornholm, a small Baltic island with a population of 50,000, seems unlikely to be reserved from the crisis which involves farmers having to adjust to reduced subsidies. The tourist industry is replacing framing, but many jobs are seasonal, and for farmers, stone masons, and fisherman, finding jobs as waiters is very difficult. Bornholm anticipates assistance from Denmark and the European Community.
Symbolically, a ballad entitled “Expect No Mercy” won first prize at a music festival on the small Baltic island of Bornholm, the eastern outpost of Denmark barring a few small islets. Bornholm, with a population of 50,000 is in distress. And there is little hope that a special government task force will be able to make much of an impact on the crisis.Continue reading

The team to 1992

THE president of the European Commission, Mr Jacques Delors, has set himself up as Mr 1992. The way he doled out the jobs among his 16 colleagues in the new commission which takes over on january 6th leaves him with no rival. The task of creating the seamless EEC market by the end of 199L, previously held by Lord Cockfield of Britain, has been split three ways. Responsibility for it all lies with Mr Delors.

This commission faces a big job: its four-year mandate leads right up to the end of 1992, when the great Euromarket is supposed to be completed. The new team has the familiar mix of former government ministers, party time-servers and technocrats. Has Mr Delors at least placed them where they can be most effective?Continue reading

A new twist for line

Fishing line that is braided is the latest advance offered by manufacturers though it is not expected to replace the monofilament lines. Evaluations of several braided fishing lines reveal that their strength is unsurpassed, but that some modifications to knot tying technique are needed.
Since March of this year, the fishing world has been swept up in growing excitement over an incredible new family of fishing lines. Claims about the performance of the lines–from unfounded rumors to the obligatory marketing hype–have bordered on the otherworldly.

These are braided lines, not monofilament, and they won’t make monofilament obsolete. Perhaps the most exotic is the one Kevlar braid from Du Pont called, appropriately, Stren Kevlar. Others in the long line of new lines include the Spectra fiber line (gel-spun polyethylene) made in the United States by Allied Signal Inc., and another Spectra product called Dyneema sold by Triple Fish Company of Ocoee, Florida. Fenwick and PRADCO are working with Japan to produce their versions of gel-spun polyethylene lines called IRON Thread and Silver Thread, respectively. Berkley and Cortland also have braided line entries.Continue reading

Gunboat diplomacy: Canada fires the first shots in what may become an all-out fish war with Europe

Canada seized a Spanish fishing trawler, the Estai, in Mar 1995, on the grounds that the vessel was severely depleting the turbot population off the coast of Newfoundland. The Estai was outside Canada’s 200-mile limit at the time of the seizure. The European Union (EU) protested the move.
It is a slime-bodied bottom-feeder–a putrid-colored fish with ugly, raised eyes that Canadian supermarkets can hardly give away. Not the sort of prize, then, that would normally be expected to bring two nations to the verge of open warfare on the high seas. But last week, as the long-simmering turbot fishing dispute between Canada and Spain boiled over into a dramatic chase across a fog-shrouded ocean, a burst of machine-gun fire and the seizure of a Spanish fishing vessel, it became obvious that these are not ordinary times. Ottawa, after all, had finally heeded demands from Atlantic Canadian fishermen and politicians to stand tall and end foreign overfishing in the waters off Newfoundland. The week may have ended in a diplomatic stalemate with Spanish trawlers threatening to resume catching turbot on the lip of Canada’s 200-nautical-mile fishing zone and Fisheries Minister Brian Tobin promising more boat seizures if they did. But his swift show of strength, at least for the moment, burnished the prestige of a minister whose department is sorely in need of any sort of high-profile victory.Continue reading
