UNITED NATIONS, April 21 (Xinhua) -- The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on Thursday warned of the environmental consequences of lost and abandoned fishing gear, saying the agency was making efforts to reduce the sea trash.

At present, it accounts for about one-tenth of all marine litter, translating into hundreds of thousands of tonnes annually, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said at a daily news briefing here.

""Growing concern over this problem, coupled with the increasing availability of new technologies to recover this equipment, has led FAO to begin developing international guidelines on the effective tagging of fishing gear as a way to cut down levels of troublesome sea trash,"" he said.

The abandoned fishing gear often continues to carry out the capture process, entangling fish and other marine animals in its nets, a phenomenon known as ""ghost fishing.""

What is known as abandoned, lost and otherwise discarded fishing gear makes up a significant portion of all debris in the oceans.

Past efforts to develop international guidelines have been largely fragmented. There are few systematic requirements by governments for ownership marking of gear, and no international regulations, guidelines or common practices exist for marine areas outside of national jurisdictions.

But that is starting to change, due to growing concerns of congestion in coastal waters, risks to safe navigation and accidental deaths of marine life.

In early April, an initial set of draft guidelines was discussed during a meeting of experts held at FAO's Headquarters in Rome. The results will be presented to FAO's Committee on Fisheries in July for review and direction regarding next steps.

""What we need is a simple and affordable system that permits easy identification of ownership of gear, fishery of origin and position of gear in the water,"" said FAO Fishery Industry Officer Petri Suuronen.

""The development of internationally recognized standards on marking all fishing gear will help us to better understand the reasons for gear loss and identify appropriate preventive measures.""

Currently, advances in marking technology are offering new possibilities for efficient tracking and recovery of lost gear and are changing the way the problem is being tackled.

""Fishers can also benefit from the use of new gear tagging technologies which will allow them to minimize loss of potential catch and expensive equipment, and save time searching for lost gear,"" Suuronen said.

Coded wire tags (CWTs) are being tested as a potential tool for reducing entanglements of marine mammals, turtles and other large marine animals. The nano-sized, laser-etched CTWs are implanted in fishing ropes with no effect on fishing performance but making them detectable to special sensors.

Satellite buoys with solar power are now commonly used in industrial purse seine operations, providing unlimited range and extra-long operating time. Other sensors, like Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers, can be attached to a radio buoy and used to transmit data.

Acoustic technology, which takes advantage of the sound transmission properties of seawater, also has applications in locating lost gear. Active pingers emit sounds at certain frequencies once in the water, whereas passive sonar reflectors capture and reflect sound energy back to its source.

Lights have long been an integral part of fishing gear markers for the night but today energy-efficient LEDs are being fitted with solar panels, amplifying their effectiveness.


“What is the difference between a long haired and a short haired chihuahua?” The answer to this question is actually very simple. One has a long coat of hair Authentic Dallas Goedert Jersey , the other has a short coat of hair. Other than that there is no major difference between them as they are both genetically the same breed.

The only difference in owning either long haired or short haired chihuahua will be grooming. Contrary to what you may believe Authentic Carson Wentz Jersey , a short haired chihuahua will actually shed more hair than a long haired. The short haired chihuahua require regular brushing and weekly grooming. Some owners Authentic Josh Sweat Jersey , including myself Authentic Avonte Maddox Jersey , state that a long haired chihuahua will only require monthly brushing and trimming around every two years.

I have a short haired myself and I can tell you that they do in fact shed quite a lot of hair. Sometimes I think to myself how can so much hair come from such a little dog? I have also owned a long haired chihuahua and I never had this problem. This is an easy problem to overcome. I brush my chihuahua outside once a day to rid his excess hair and give him a bath once a month.

Even though they look relatively different to each other Authentic Clayton Thorson Jersey , the long haired and short haired chihuahua are both easy to train. There are many people claiming that chihuahua’s are a difficult breed to train. I do not agree with this although Authentic Shareef Miller Jersey , chihuahua’s are a very intelligent breed and sometimes owners have a tendency to be trained by their chihuahua. I believe that many chihuahua owners are not using the correct chihuahua training and this can lead to some behaviour problems that are very hard to eliminate. The main behaviour problems that a chihuahua will have are excessive barking Authentic JJ Arcega-Whiteside Jersey , biting and nipping Authentic Miles Sanders Jersey , not obeying basic commands and bad potty training habits. These behaviour problems are easy to correct using basic training methods and consistency.

The long haired and short haired chihuahua are a beautiful Authentic Andre Dillard Jersey , intelligent and loving breed and would make a great companion to anybody including families. There is a common belief that a chihuahua is not the best dog to have around small children because of their small size and a tendency for a chihuahua to nip and bite. Socializing your chihuahua with children at a young age is the best way to avoid any biting problems as it is usually a fear.
