An approach to retroactively estimate catches
in cases where reliable time series data are lacking applies a "re-estimation" approach to approximate historic catch time series (Zeller et al., 2006a).
Other species to have shown an increase in catches
over this period, though generally with a drop in 2004, are the Atlantic redfishes, rays, and white hake whose catches
rose from 11,000 tonnes in 1995 to nearly 19,000 tonnes in 2003.
But in every fishery the researchers studied, the number of catches
declined by about 16 percent per year.

included Michael Hall of Cramlington who had 19; Louis Baker, also from Cramlington, who caught 16; Bill Potter from Morpeth who caught 15; and John Tait from Belford who caught 13.
Because larger catches
are easier to divide up among competing interests, the councils' responsibility to allocate catches
, the report continued, "encourages them to set lax fishery limits, undermining conservation."
ALL sewin and salmon anglers should, by now, have sent to the Environment Agency (EA) a record of their catches
of sewin and salmon for the 2001 fishing season.
Holiday anglers enjoyed good sport this week, with two match catches
