In an emergency in the middle of the sea, fishing on the high seas becomes almost the only way to get food for people in distress. You can fish in the sea with fishing rods, docks, tyrants and other impromptu tackles available in the emergency kit..
Fishing on the high seas during survival in an emergency, tackle and traps, identification of fish dangerous for eating.
Before you throw fishing tackle into the water, you need to check the fishing line for a break to see if it has lost its strength during long-term storage. In the absence of a fishing kit, fishing tackle should be made from improvised materials. Fishing line from rescue rails, casting line, tow line or a line that goes to the floating anchor, akryuchki from the rim of the drain scoop, paddle blades, cans of drinking water, etc..
from the emergency fishing kit, you must remember that silver or yellow is better to use in the daytime, and painted at night. And most importantly, do not forget to tie them to the fishing line through a metal leash. Victims should know that on sunny, hot days, the largest number of fish and other marine life is in the shadow of a financial aid, directly under the bottom of a raft or boat. There it should be obtained with fishing rods or makeshift jails made from oars and knives. But only act under the bottom of the raft should be very careful so as not to damage its skin.
High seas fishing with fishing traps.
To catch small fish from plastic bottles and cans, you can build small traps. When sharks and large marine animals approach, fishing must be stopped. It is not recommended to fish when passing large schools of fish, as predatory fish and marine animals can hunt them. In inflatable boats and emergency rescue equipment, special care must be taken when working with hooks, spinners and other sharp objects, when pulling fish with spiky fins and outgrowths from the water. It is best to pull out the fish by first wrapping it in cloth with water or cloth.
Hazardous food for distressed offshore fish.
Do not eat fish that swell when touched or are covered with spikes and sharp growths.
Do not eat fish that are not covered with scales, without side fins.
Do not eat fish with shiny gills, with lips protruding and overgrown with outgrowths, and generally all fish with an unusual appearance and bright color.
Do not eat sedentary, sluggish, foul-smelling fish, with skin ulcers and growths, hemorrhages and tumors of internal organs.
Do not eat stale and dubious fish.
Do not eat fish caviar, milk, liver, as in many tropical fish species they often contain poisons that do not break down and do not weaken even with prolonged cooking.
Unfamiliar fish should be eaten as follows. Cut the meat into thin slices, soak in water for 30 to 40 minutes, change the water and cook until tender. But it is better if there is doubt about the edibility of the fish, not to use it at all. This is especially true for maritime accidents, since any poisoning in conditions of limited water consumption is deadly. If you refrain from eating dubious fish, you do not have enough patience, then you should use the sample rule described in this article. That is, tasting it in small quantities only to one crew member. Wait 6-7 hours, in the absence of signs of poisoning, increase the serving, wait another 6-7 hours, and then there are no restrictions. All fish caught in arctic and northern european waters are fit for consumption.
