Carnon Fishing Club organizes for the benefit of the association REVES, a fishing trip for ill children

Thanks to the willingness of the club's board to carry out a "solidarity" project every year. (ULIS class, CEMEA ...) and the contacts of our president Jean Luc Naudet, that could be organised a fishing trip at sea with the association Dreams

The whole club gathered for this very unusual fishing trip, in joy and good humor but also in complete safety.

5 boats with their captains, as well as a crew of 2 to 3 members of the club, welcomed 8 children, some with their parents and the team of Agglo TV. A good half-dozen members of both associations stayed at the club premises to prepare lunch for all participants.

While the weather forecast was lousy, the conditions improved: calm sea and little wind, but a rather strong residual current.

Embarked safely, our young fishermen began to catch fishies: serrans, scorpionfish, oblades come to take a ride on board the time of a photo before returning to their natural element.

Around noon, full of air from the open sea, the children and their companions returned for lunch, and surprise, it is KIKO and the Gypsiland who will ensure the ambiance during the meal. Pizzas and chocolate cake offered by the restaurant Gusto de Lattes, a macaronade prepared by Alain, all have put a lot of heart to make this lunch a nice moment ...

From the smallest to the biggest, everyone was delighted. The pictures illustrate this feeling.

12 March 2018 - Conference on the behavior and the migrations of the bluefin tuna by Tristan Rouyer of IFRMER of Sète  

More than 20 fishermen invited by the Carnon Fishing Club and the Port of Carnon, attended this conference and appreciated the various aspects of the life of the bluefin tuna presented by this scientist, also responsible for the project POPSTAR (marking a group of 200 tunas with tags to understand their migration).

Among the many elements presented by Tristan, those concerning the ability of tuna to move during the 40 years of his life, have surprised more than one.

Its (very) fast migrations thanks to its ability to swim at 100km per hour remain difficult to understand, between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.

Monitoring (by plane) in the Gulf of Lion shows the presence and movement of juvenile tuna mattes from the surface. However, visibility limits and movements of tuna outside the area make a complementary method of monitoring essential.

It is the marking with electronic tags that inform on the trajectory of the fish throughout the life of the tag (about 1 year).

As part of the POPSTAR project, mass tagging will track individuals from the same group and track breeding and nutrition events.

Tristan presented tagging videos from Malta and the Gulf of Lions.

These explanations allowed everyone to interpret past events and make plans for the coming year.



The documents and videos presented are available in the adhering part of the Club WEB site.

Events June 2017

The members and the Carnon Fishing club have broken the Club's activity records in June 2017.

On 13th June nearly 30 members gathered at the 'Maison Familiale des Mines id'Alès at Carnon Plage to organize the two strong events of this month and all had a dinner by the beach.

On the 17th, during the "Carnon en folie" events organized by the municipality, the CFC took over 50 people for an hour fishing at sea. Despite the windy weather conditions that required the team strong efforts when docking. All the "guests" were delighted with the trip and many promised to return if the opportunity arises. In the evening the municipality organized a dinner prepared by the cheerful Carnonnais to thank the organizers of the activities and the CFC was very well represented.

On 20 June, after many joint efforts, we welcomed the Ulis class of Mauguio to allow these slightly handicapped children and their teachers to enjoy a fishing trip at sea. Great atmosphere for these children who were able to catch some fishes which were released when the size was not the right one. Lunch in common with club members and french fries ... All were delighted.

Thank you to all the members of the CFC who gave their time for these events.
