GHOST - Military Watercraft Prototype

A recent article on Gizmag.com reports on a new “super-cavitating” military vessel created by New Hampshire-based Juliet Marine Systems (JMS). According to the article, the new boat—dubbed GHOST—features special tubular foils that create a bubble of gas around the foils, all but eliminating drag. JMS states that “GHOST is a combination aircraft/boat that has been designed to fly through an artificial underwater gaseous environment that creates 900 times less hull friction than water.” PHOTOS http://boatingloca l.com/news/new-boa t-flies-through-wa ter.html  (Jan 25, 2012 | post #1)

Victory for Menhaden Declared by Anglers, Conservationists

At its annual meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, the Atlantic States Fisheries Commission’s Atlantic Menhaden Board yesterday (November 9) approved new management measures that aim to end the overfishing of menhaden and increase coastal stocks to sustainable numbers. The board voted to set a harvest target of 30% of Maximum Spawning Potential (MSP). MSP is the total number of adult menhaden in the population, under an unfished-stock scenario. To achieve this goal, the current harvest will need to be reduced by 37% when the new measures are implemented. http://boatingloca l.com/fishing/vict ory-for-menhaden-d eclared-by-anglers -conservationists. html  (Nov 14, 2011 | post #1)
