Hi everyone,

So I have some very interesting news from Dr Carabott regarding the use of a handline  (if it is illegal), and what is exactly meant by "rixa":


Dear Mr. Pulis Kristian,

No, hand line with or without floats is legal once the line diameter is observed.

“Rixa” is the Maltese translation of trolling as for frigate mackerel (tumbrel), dolphin fish (lampuka), albacore (alonga) etc…. Occasionally tuna is caught by trolling.

Hope that this helps.

Regards,
Joe



Hope this clarifies a lot of queries that were asked earlier in this thread Smiley

Le bonell jista jsir ukol bix-xlif fuq l-idejn u jistaw jintuzaw anki floats. L-importanti li l-hxuna tax-xlief jiqba skond ir-regolamenti.

Clayton...diment li izzom il-barra mill-boundary tal-fishfarms tista toqod vicin jew il-boghod kem trid.

My Question

Good afternoon Dr Carabott,

I need some clarification with regards to the allowed amateur fishing methods for Bluefin tuna. On the fishing regulations there is written that one can fish by rod, "rixa" or harpoon. Does that mean that one who is not in a financial position to buy the very expensive tuna gear (rod and reel), and thus resorts to a handline and floats, is doing something illegal? Also, can you further explain what is really meant by "rixa"...does it mean trolling?

Can you kindly clarify this point? Of course by handline I still imply that it falls within the stipulated line diameter specified by the regulations.

Thanks!

Best Regards,
Kristian Pulis

Nispera li it-tabib Carabott ma kienx qed jifmek ghal pratika fejn wiehed juza il-metodu tal-landa waqt li jkun qed irrejjex ghal-alungi.  Sa fejn naf jien, l-uzu tal landa jew fender zghir ghas-sajd specifiku tat-tonn fi-vicinanzi tal-fishfarm huwa ipprojbit.  Li kont minnek nikkonferma ma l-awtoritajiet koncernati, iggifieri fisheries.

Mela din hi mill gdied il-mistoqsija tieghi u r-risposta tad-Dott. Carabott:

My email

Dear Joe,

With reference to my previous email, can you kindly confirm that one can make use of floats (laned, fenders, etc.) to catch Bluefin tuna (even in the vicinity of a fish farm)? Again I emphasize that the proper line diameter stipulated by law is observed. What I mean by this is that instead of one making use of a rod and reel to fight and tire a tuna, a jerry can or fender is used.

I am asking this since I personally do not own any expensive tuna gear, apart from the fact that this is almost exclusively how people fish for Bluefin tuna by the fish farms.

I have also sent an email to the fisheries but I have not received a reply so far.

P.s. Sorry for any inconvenience, but I do not wish any 'surprises' i.e. heavy fines for breaking the law.

Kind Regards,
Kristian



Dr Carabott's Reply


Dear Mr Kristian Pulis,

During our meetings with the Fisheries Directorate re regulation of Amateur Fishermen Tuna License, the use of floats to tire the catch was not considered illegal provided that there is one hook and not a serious of hooks and floats as that will be a long line which is prohibited.

You can fish by the fish farms provided you are out of their perimeter marks.

Regards
Joe
