      The 2006/7 crayfishing season on
      Tristan got underway last Tuesday, on
      Uncle Sam’s Birthday, when the Tristan
      based power boats went out on the first
      good July day.
      On Wednesday fishing continued with
      quality and quantity both reported as
      good.
      Tristan’s Crayfish are carefully monitored
      to conserve stocks, with revised
      quotas being revised annually to maintain
      a sustainable resource for future
      generations. Tristan fish are landed by
      island based powerboats, whilst the fishing
      boats fish the outer islands of Nightingale,
      Inaccessible and Gough. MV
      Edinburgh is due to depart on 12th August
      for an extended fishing trip around
      the outer islands, either catching the full
      quota in one trip, or extending the January
      2007 sailing to complete the agreed
      quota of 395 tonnes. The quota has
      been extended with 30 tonnes in comparison
      with previous year.
