Whale entanglements drop, but still a threat | National

PORTLAND, Maine — The number of whales entangled in fishing gear has declined recently, but the entanglements remain a critical threat to rare species, the federal government said in a new report.

There were 53 confirmed cases of large whales entangled in gear in the U.S. in 2020, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That was a 25% decline from the previous year and a lower figure than the 13-year average, the agency said.

Entanglement in fishing gear is one of the two biggest threats to declining species of whales, particularly North Atlantic right whales, which number less than 340 in the world. The other threat is collisions with ships.

Every coastal region except Alaska saw a decrease in whale entanglements, NOAA said. The agency said it will take more research to determine the cause of the decline in entanglements, and it’s possible that the COVID-19 pandemic’s disruption of both fishing activities and data reporting could have played a role.

It’s also possible that factors unrelated to the pandemic could have played a role, as “some regions have reported large-scale environmental changes, like marine heat waves, that may also be affecting large whale entanglement rates and reporting,” the agency said in the report.

More than half the entangled whales were humpback whales, which are popular with whale watchers and have a relatively stable worldwide population. However, four of the whales were North Atlantic right whales, which are in the midst of a population decline due to recent years of high mortality and poor reproduction.

The right whales give birth off Florida and Georgia and migrate north to the waters off New England and Canada to feed. Scientists and conservationists have sounded alarms in recent years that warming waters seem to be causing the whales to stray from protected areas of ocean in search of food.

The current level of entanglements is more than whales can stand, said Kristen Monsell, an attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity, a conservation group. The group and others have pushed for tighter restrictions on commercial fishing to prevent the whales from entanglement.

“These reports show far too many endangered whales are caught in fishing gear, particularly because reported entanglements are just the tip of the iceberg,” Monsell said.

The whale runs away after being chased by the boat; The crew ‘just laugh’

a sailboat if collided with a whale After chasing it in the waters of the Beagle Channel, in the Patagonia region of Argentina. Despite being in April this year, a recording of the hit-and-run has recently gone viral.

According to the Association of Employees and Lawyers for Animal Rights (Afda), the sailboat’s crew “just laughed” when they fled. The sailboat was identified by the Argentine Ministry of the Environment and Sustainable Development as Inismara Re 34586.

In the record, it is possible to see the boat moving towards the animal. Then the sailboat collides with the whale. The hit-and-run occurred in the Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego on the Beagle Strait, which separates Argentina from Chile.

Measures to be taken against those responsible for trampling

According to the Association of Animal Rights Officials and Lawyers (Afda), the agency will take “legal action against those who hit the whale. An unprecedented incident”. “They just laughed and left the scene,” the organization said in a statement, published by the newspaper La Nacional.

according to the newspaper EarthAfda pointed out that “the lack of regulation in the field of animal welfare as a result of the incident in the Beagle Channel” in addition to pointing out the need for a law to “protect and improve the living conditions of the animals.”

The agency indicated the need for filing complaints in similar cases. Because, in this situation, in addition to the institutions monitoring the area, it is “essential in case the whales appear trapped”, which is able to identify and prove the damage caused to the mammal.

Diablo Immortal player uses premium currency shenanigans to turn old WoW tokens into a whale-killing Necromancer

First spotted by our colleagues at GamesRadar (opens in new tab), a Diablo Immortal player with the Reddit handle daymeeuhn has successfully parlayed a collection of old promotional World of Warcraft loot cards into 600 million gold, which they then used to purchase approximately $50,000 worth of Diablo Immortal rewards (opens in new tab) through the unified Blizzard ecosystem. The spree enabled daymeeuhn to create a nigh-unstoppable Necromancer that they claim has embarrassed at least one heavy-spending Diablo Immortal streamer in the game’s PvP.

Before we get too far, it’s worth pointing out that daymeeuhn may just be merely another, albeit indirect, Diablo Immortal “whale” (a term for the minority of players who make the majority of purchases in an F2P game). They had previously purchased a surfeit of WoW loot cards at BlizzCon events, spending an estimated $1,000-$2,000 in real money in hopes of turning them around for a profit. As daymeeuhn puts it, “Over the years, trying to sell them was near impossible as you get scammed on digital sales so frequently.”
