The public and anglers in Donegal have been warned to keep an eye for a rare species of salmon that has returned to Irish waters in ‘unprecedented numbers’ according to Inland Fisheries Ireland.The state agency, which is responsible for conservation and management of inland fisheries resources, has called on the anglers and members of the public to report sightings of Pacific pink salmon.Although they were first recorded in Ireland in 1973, they were very rare in Irish waters until 2017, and in the past week have been spotted in more southern parts of Norway, prompting fears they could appear in Irish waters once again. As they only have a two-year life cycle, numbers of the species have since fallen, but sightings of them returning to Irish rivers have sparked concern that they might negatively impact some of the native Irish species swimming in Irish water.Head of research and development at IFI, Dr Cathal Gallagher, said: “The potential presence of pink salmon in Irish rivers again is of ongoing concern to Inland Fisheries Ireland, as its presence in large numbers may negatively impact some of Ireland’s native species.“Despite only very limited information being currently available to assess such threats, the climatic and environmental conditions in Ireland are considered quite amenable to facilitate the establishment of Pacific pink salmon populations in Irish river systems,” he added.Pacific pink salmon are migratory species of salmon, which are native to river systems in the northern Pacific ocean, and nearby regions of the Bering Sea and Arctic ocean. The species has also established populations in rivers in the northern-most parts of Norway. and in the far northwest of Russia.Anglers who catch pink salmon are being asked to take a photograph, tag the fish, do not return the fish to the water, and keep them for the IFI, which will arrange for them to be collected.Donegal anglers urged to report sightings of ‘rare’ salmon species was last modified: June 27th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Share 00:00 /01:08 – / 3Woodlands Express is a commuter bus service that’s operated by The Woodlands Township, with the help of a federal transit grant. About 2,700 riders a day use the service to get from The Woodlands to downtown Houston. It also stops in the Med Center and Greenway Plaza. But when the buses head back to Montgomery County, they’re empty. To fill those seats, The Woodlands Township Board of Directors has approved a new reverse-commuting program. The Woodlands Director of Community Relations Nick Wolda says the buses will now start carrying people from Houston to the suburbs.“There’s really no risk on our part as far as the financial risk because these are buses already coming back,” says Wolda. But once you get riders to The Woodlands, how do you get them to the places where they work? Wolda says they plan to discuss that with some of the area’s major employers. “Those are things we’ll be working through over the next few weeks,” adds Wolda. “And we plan to launch this service once we develop and work out a lot of these details.” Woodlands Express is planning to start the reverse commuting program after the first of the year. The fare for a round-trip is currently $13. Listen X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:

Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveBegin with a plan- Not all home businesses need an official business plan, but every home business owner must spend some time planning. Before you put out your shingle, sit down and determine how much money you need to invest (and in what), your goals (short- and long-term), your marketing plan and all those pesky details. When starting a new venture in an emerging market or with an untested model, it’s important to keep costs as close to zero as possible. Those who’ve bootstrapped their company know this better than anyone. When you do bootstrapped business, you tend to work from your own house initially for few months. You play smartly with finance, and it should be very, very carefully spent. Instead of hiring developers or bringing on a technical co-founder, the entire system and workflow should be built in Google Docs — the “personal” version. Use smart and cost-effective business tools- There are a number of tools available which assist you in achieving the best possible results with minimum expenditure. These tools also assist you in defining your business and your vision and give you a reality check on the viability of your business ideas. The use of these tools means that you do not have to use your scarce money and resources in employing experts who may be useful.

The important thing is that how one can articulate a clear, logical view on how CommonBond will achieve market share in the short term as well as many ideas on how it will invest in sales and marketing efforts to enhance its competitive advantage over time. Identify the needs of your customers- For any business customers service is the most essential part. Ideally, you should identify customer needs which your business can satisfy better than your existing competitors, because of the competitive advantages of your business, which distinguish you from the rest. Most of the companies just guess about the type of products or services their customers wish for. This is why many startups fail, as they do not understand their customers’ needs and guess it wrong. Speak to your clients- When you have recognized your ideal consumers, you have two options, either you can speculate about the services or products they want or you can just go and talk to them about what type of products or services they wish for. In order to have an edge over other businesses and be successful in your business, you must talk to your clients. Ask them questions so that you can know the problem they are facing. Then, you can work on this problem, which is shared by many people, and then you can take the leap. Keep Track on everything- Make sure that you manage your business through numbers and keep track of everything. You must do it in writing and produce written documents for everything, since you will get advantages from these in the future. This way you can retain consistency and train your employees too. Identify the numbers and verify them regularly. Plus, you must make all your decisions depending on these numbers. Among these, one of the most significant estimates is the cash flow document. There are several other things to consider when it comes to set a startup, but the few tips above are highly important. When you get them right, you’re mostly on your way to establishing a strong and successful startup business. (Author is Mr. Pradeep Shukla- CEO & CO-Founder- OOFFRR App)
