    They DID used to commercial net calicos until the practice was banned. Calicos have now bounced back.

    White Sea Bass gillnets also obliterated that species. It has now been banned and hopefully that species comes back for our children.

    Tuna netting should be banned but since they migrate, Mexico would have to be on board. Good luck with that one.

    Funny? But True. It's what green peace does, and it works. Plus this is Southern California . Home of conservation not decimation.

    Normally I would never waste my time to reply to such nonsence
    Normally I would never reply to such nonsense but this time I feel I must. I am the owner/operator of the F/V Eileen. I am a third generation commercial fishermen and my family has been purse seining tuna for almost 100 years in Southern California. Thursday while participating in the legal sustainable tuna fishery in southern California, I was running east to an area where our spotter pilot had seen several schools of tuna. As I approached the area, there was only one sport boat near by that was chasing around breaking fish. I stopped moving east about a quarter mile short of the sport boat TNT and turned back to the west and began to follow a moving school that was hauling ass to the southwest. Whether or not the fish I was following was the same fish that was earlier breaking around the TNT, I couldn't tell you. At that time the TNT thought it a good idea to run along side me and restrict my ability to turn to port to circle the school. I blew my horn over and over trying to signal danger to the TNT but he just kept harassing me and was now joined by another boat. I continued to blow my horn thinking that they would figure out I was in the act of fishing and would back off. If these gentlemen were to understand the rules of the road, they would have seen the day shape in the rigging indicating I was in the act of fishing and harassing my vessel would be illegal . Eventually, the boats dropped back just enough that I though I had room to turn to port to circle the school. While making the turn, watching the sonar, listening to the pilot, directing the crew, blowing the horn and trying to watch for two small vessels that were harassing me, I noticed they had both come to a stop right where I needed to go. This fish was moving fast and I was running hard trying to keep up with them. When I noticed both boats were going to sit there right in my way I started slowing down but a 250 ton boat doesn't stop on a dime. Not knowing there intentions I did my best to come out of the hard circle and leave them on my port side. At that time you would think they could figure out that they had put themselves in dangerous situation.
    Although I knew that I would be able to steer clear of them I believe they both panicked and almost ran in to each other. I also have video of the entire incident and would be happy to share it with the Coast Guard or any other interested party. We're just out there trying to make a living and there is plenty of fish for all of us. And by the way, it's true, if they're not biting and we happen to get lucky and catch um, come on by always happy to help out a fellow fishermen. Good luck out there and stay safe!

    You can contact them .

    Facts are worldwide their intervention tactics work in a variety of ways.

    I'm sure if private boaters spook the tunas they will not be so easy to seine. Which means they might be available another day for some happy angler. Not for you , or your kind.
