Oral History Association of Australia

The Tasmanian Committee of the Oral History Association of Australia will hold a seminar on Saturday, 7th September, featuring a couple of items that might be of interest to the wider fishing community.  One speaker is Neil Stump on the oral history project for the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council and another is Garry Kerr, a fisherman by profession and historian by inclination.  He has produced DVDs, especially on the Flinders Island traders, and is interested in wooden boats.

Some music you may enjoy

Rick Keam is well known to many fly fishers. He is an editor, fly tyer and writer of note. Rick is pedantic in all things and it shows in his music. This is laid back easy listening, so click on the links below to preview.

Science debunks myth of fish pain

The science is in - fish don't feel pain. Anglers resume your pastime. Animal-rights activists retract the propaganda. Reversing the previous popular view that fish do feel pain, a team of seven scientists conducted extensive research to determine if the nociceptor responsible for pain in humans does they same thing in fish. The first discovery was that there were very few nociceptors in fish mouths. But it was also found that the fish brain does not contain the highly developed neocortex needed to feel pain in the first place. Read the article here Science Debunks Myth of Fish Pain

Sunscreen Protection

Tasmania’s sun can be deadly - get protection

Tasmanian fishermen and boat enthusiasts are in danger of irreversible eye damage and contributing to the Australia’s reputation for the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world. This can be avaided by taking some rudimentary precautions
Australia’s has a unique climate with extreme levels of Ultra Violet Radiation (UVR). Our the love of the outdoors, and reluctance to embrace the ‘Slip Slop Slap’ mantra of the anti cancer council means two out of three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. You are four times more likely to be diagnosed with skin cancer including melanoma than any other cancer.
Suitable protection of the skin against UV damage and regular skin checks can reduce the incidence of these cancers and early diagnosis can dramatically improve the outcome once diagnosed!
