Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Volume 3 Number 3


The fishing industry has had a major impact on the image and character of the Firth of Clyde and many of its coastal towns. It is a complex, traditional industry and holds great economic importance for many rural communities around Scotland’s coast, including the Clyde, as well as political influence (SSMEI, 2010). In the Clyde, fishing occurs throughout the area and the main landing ports are Campbelltown, Tarbert, Ayr and Troon and some smaller fishing ports, Greenock, Largs and Rothesay. The Clyde had once been a productive fishery for demersal, pelagic and shellfish but is now primarily a shellfish fishery. The locations of the main fishing ports in the region where landings have been recorded are shown in Figure 6.1.

The principal fisheries management legislation Acts that are applicable to the Clyde are included in Table 6.1. The list should not be considered a comprehensive list and does not include the statutory instruments implemented under the different acts throughout the years.

However, since the Buyers and Sellers regulation there has also been a dramatic increase in the levels of discarding of finfish across all age groups suggesting that the legislation has controlled landings rather than catch.

A ban on trawling in the Clyde was originally introduced in the late nineteenth century after fishery scientists at the time suggested that the Firth of Clyde fisheries were becoming depleted due to excessive trawling (Thurstan and Roberts, 2010). The Act was then amended in 1934 to include beam and otter trawling under the Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Act 1934. The closure remained in place until 1962 when the Sea Fisheries (Scotland) Byelaw (No.65) came into effect which permitted summer (1 May to 30 September) otter trawling within the Firth of Clyde except within a 3 nautical mile limit (Figure 6.1). Further legislation in 1968 (Sea Fisheries (Scotland) Byelaws no.’s 80 and 83) enabled fishing to take place throughout the year. The 3 nautical mile limit remained until 1984 (Inshore Fishing (Scotland) Act) when it was repealed under pressure from the industry during a time when demersal finfish landings were in decline. Sea angling was at one time a major sport and tourist attraction in the Clyde, which began in the 1960s. However, with the decline in catches sea angling in the Clyde is not what it used to be. SSACN blame poor fisheries policies and practices combined with political ineptitude, resulting in the removal of many gear and access restrictions in the 1980’s, to be the reason that the quality of sea angling has drastically declined. This suggestion was further supported by Thurstan and Roberts (2010) which linked the collapse of the demersal fisheries in the Clyde with the removal of the 3 nautical mile closure.

With regards to legislation applicable to the herring fishery in the Clyde, it was also prohibited to pelagic trawling for herring until 1962. In the same year a Byelaw was passed which prohibited fishing for herring by any method between midnight on Fridays and midnight on Sundays. The spawning ground for herring located on the Ballantrae Bank had originally been closed in 1860 but this was repealed in 1867. The bank stayed open to fishing until 1972 when a seasonal closure was introduced from 15 February until the 30 April each year. There was an exemption for anchored drift nets but they became included in the seasonal closure in 1977 (Bailey et al., 1986).

The measures which remain in force in order to protect the spring spawning herring are as follows;

a complete ban on herring fishing from 1 January to 30 April a complete ban on all
replica ray bans forms of active fishing from 1 February to 1 April on the Ballantrae Bank spawning grounds a ban on herring fishing between 00,00
replica ray ban sunglasses Saturday morning and 24,00 Sunday night. 6.3 Stock Assessment

ICES provides scientific advice on the management of the important commercial species of fin fish and some shellfish stocks in all areas of the north east Atlantic. For the purpose of assessment, ICES divide sea areas into sub areas and divisions. Annual Total Allowable Catch (TAC) quotas are agreed for each of the fisheries in each division. Ideally these are based on scientific advice which is given in accordance with the precautionary approach and aimed at keeping stocks above the reference point of Bpa (if this is defined for the stock). This work is summarised in the annual ICES advice. ICES is responsible for providing scientific advice on TACs and other conservation measures to the international fisheries commissions, including the EU. In addition, since 2010 ICES has given advice in relation to Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY).

The Firth of Clyde falls into Division VIa which stretches from the North Channel of the Irish Sea to 60N and west to 12W including the coast of Scotland as far east as 4W including the Clyde. For the main demersal species stock assessments are carried out at the level of VIa. Thus assessment and setting of Total Allowable Catches is carried out at the level of the ‘West of Scotland’ rather than the Clyde. The main exceptions to this are Clyde herring, Nephrops and scallops, which are assessed locally.

6.4 Pelagic FisheriesThe Firth of Clyde was once the centre of a major herring fishery which had been prosecuted in Scottish inshore waters since the 15th century (Rorke, 2005) although it has been subject to major fluctuations (Bailey et al., 1986). The biology of the Clyde herring stock has been studied since the late 1800’s following the opening of a temporary laboratory at Tarbert, Loch Fyne (Gordon and De Silva, 1980). In the past the fishery was almost entirely dependent on spring spawning herring which spawn locally on Ballantrae Bank in the Firth of Clyde until about 1969 when a new component of autumn spawning herring gradually increased in importance in landings and was predominant by 1972 (HAWG, 1978). Although autumn spawned herring formed a greater part of the Clyde population, there was no evidence of autumn spawning occurring within the Firth (Wood, 1960; Saville, 1962).

Although there had been no significant change in the abundance of the total herring population, the spring spawners had decreased in the early 1970s which was accompanied by an increase in the absolute abundance of autumn spawners. In 1979 TAC regulations were imposed on the stock in addition to a closure of the fishery from October through till May in response to the clear evidence of a decrease in the abundance of spring spawning herring (Bailey et al., 1986). The cause of this decline may be natural as it can be attributed with the reduced recruitment of the local spring spawning stock, but the effects of intensive exploitation cannot be ruled out (Bailey et al., 1986).

In Scotland, records of herring landings were kept even before the Fishery Board for Scotland was formed in 1882. The fishery was prosecuted by anchored drift net and ring netting until pair trawling arrived in 1968 and became the predominant method by 1973 (Bailey et al., 1986). Catches increased to a peak between the late 1950s and mid 1960s averaging around 14,000 t per annum after which the stock began to collapse (Bailey, 1986) (see Figure 6.2).

The Firth of Clyde is part of ICES Division VIa and in the 1970s all the herring stocks in the adjacent areas to the Clyde were at a low level. This led to Division VIa herring fishery being closed in 1978 but because of the complex origin of the Clyde herring population, ICES advised that the area be treated as a separated management unit. A small TAC of 2000t was agreed in 1979 for the area (Bailey et al., 1986) and the first analytical assessment was carried out in 1982 (Hatfield et al., 2007). Management of the Clyde has remained separate since 1979.

Landings of herring from the Firth of Clyde fluctuated about a long term average of 14,200t in the period 1893 1960, from 1960 1978 the average landings were down to 8300t and only 2400t from 1978 1984 when landings became regulated. Since 1991 catches in the Clyde have exceeded 1,000 t only once (see Figure 6.3). The reasons for the collapse of the Clyde
discount ray bans herring are not clear cut however declining spawning stock biomass, high fishing mortality and lack of recruitment to the local spring spawning stock may well have been causative (Bailey et al., 1986).

Figure 6.2 Herring landings in the Firth of Clyde (1000 tonnes) 1890 1984 (Source, Bailey et al., 1986).

Figure 6.3. Herring landings (1000 tonnes), 1955 to 2009. Spring and autumn spawning herring combined. Agreed TAC 1984 2009.

Today herring in the Clyde are exploited by a small number of local trawlers and by pair trawlers from Northern Ireland. There is not much information on the current status of the stock as catch and sampling data availability has been minimal since the early 2000s. Thus, the precise status of the stock is uncertain; the stock is low but there is currently no evident downward trend. The Clyde herring stock is recognised as a separate stock but is not currently assessed analytically.

In 2011 under the provisions of the TAC
cheap ray bans and Quota Regulations (57/2011), the European Commission has delegated the function of setting the TAC for certain stocks which are only fished by one Member State, to that Member State setting out a mechanism for how the TAC should be determined. This provision currently applies only to the Clyde Herring stock. However, as mentioned, Clyde Herring is a very data poor stock which makes this task more difficult. It has been proposed, in the absence of a detailed assessment, to set the TAC for 2011 based on the recent stability of the fishery at an average of the TAC set for the last 3 years.

Despite the management measures imposed on the Clyde herring fishery such as the closure of the spawning fishery, there is so far no evidence of recovery of the recruitment to this stock.

6.5 Demersal Fisheries

In the Clyde yields of demersal fish increased rapidly after the repeal, in 1962, of the long standing ban on trawling in the area up to 3 nautical miles from the coast. The demersal fish landings continued to increase up until 1973 when landings reached a maximum before starting to decline (Hislop, 1986). In 1984 the 3 nautical mile ban was also lifted in order to try and maintain catch levels. This proved ineffective and demersal fin fish landings continued to decline until the early 2000’s when the directed fishery effectively ceased (Heath and Speirs, 2010). In addition, the total demersal fishing effort in the Clyde had risen since the 1960’s almost entirely due to an increase in trawling for Nephrops from which there was a large by catch of whitefish. According to the Scottish Sea Fisheries Statistical Tables (SSFST), which were published annually by DAFS, the annual weights of all demersal species landed at Clyde ports, in the early 1980’s, ranged from 4,000 to 10,000 tonnes, valued at 2 5 million. In terms of value, cod and hake were the most important species in the Clyde fishery; these species composition of landings in the Clyde are unusual for a Scottish inshore fishery in that the proportion of haddock is rather small, while that of hake is relatively large.

The demersal fishery was seasonal on the Clyde grounds and most of the fishing effort took place during the winter and spring, partly because catch rates were relatively high at this time of year and partly because the area provides shelter from the winter weather. The Clyde fishery depends to a large extent on young fish and the relative importance of the principle species fluctuates from year to year in response to variations in the strength of the recruiting year class. Although there was no conclusive evidence that the Clyde populations were self contained, all the major species are known to spawn within or close to the area and tagging experiments had shown that there was not much mixing between Clyde fish and those from surrounding areas. Historically, the most important single species in the Clyde demersal fishery in terms of landings has been whiting (Gambell, 1965).Articles Connexes:

Rather than obsessing over perfectly symmetrical forms, realistic proportions and shading subtleties, Guinness seems to sketch with the impatience of an excitable 7 year old, but it precisely those imprecisions and imperfections that make his work so endearing, so whimsical. lovers will gravitate toward the Hugo Guinness for Coach Reversible Totes ($398 each at

The Hugo Guinness for Coach Coffee Cup Reversible Tote, for instance, features a black cotton canvas exterior with a white illustration of a New York City diner coffee cup and Guinness HG signature and date (as shown above at top). If you turn the purse inside out, however, the canvas design will then become the lining of an almond colored vachetta leather purse with the HG limited edition logo at top. These totes measure 13 1/4" in length, 15 3/4" in height, and 3 3/4" in width, making them roomy enough alternatives for even my fellow bag ladies. Similarly, the Hugo Guinness for Coach Boxer Reversible Tote features a black leather shoulder strap, one side covered in black leather (tucked inside the bag in the photo above), and a white cotton canvas side (shown along the exterior in the above photo) with an original Guinness linoleum print of a shrieking boxer, his hands at his sides, and his gloves practically touching his breathable shorts, the band of

Forget "The Bachelor" Ben Flajnik wimpy winery in Sonoma! The best vinos hail from France whether it the Burgundy, Rhne, Alsace, Bordeaux, Champagne or Languedoc regions. The land that cradled couture icon Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel also produced some of the most robust, flavorful, juicy grapes which, in turn, have revolutionized the cuisine arena and pleased gourmands the world over. As someone with an appreciation for the finest things in life, then, Coco Chanel would have been pleased to know that, as part of her legacy, the Chanel corporation purchases its own vineyard in the late 20th century: the Chteau Rauzan Sgla. 130 acre vineyard, located in the Margaux section of Bordeaux, was part of an expansive estate owned by Pierre de Mesures de Rauzan since 1662. In 1994, Chanel acquired the celebrated vineyard, best known for its Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots, and helped to elevate every single element of these wines constitutions from its inviting bouquet to its full bodied structure, velvety texture, comforting warmth, and delightful finish.

To celebrate its 350th anniversary, Chteau Rauzan Sgla is poised to unveil a new 2009 vintage edition of its Grand Cru Class. Hitting fine wine retailers in March, the Grand Cru Class comes in a collectible bottle bearing a label illustrated by Karl Lagerfeld, longtime creative director of the Chanel fashion house. To celebrate these landmarks, Lagerfeld offered his own rendition of the chteau itself which, with the help of York based architect Peter Marino was restored to its former glory, also paying special attention to the well manicured grounds the palatial courtyard, detailing everything from the tiled rooftop to the arched walkway, and the landscaping arrangement, with its potted shrubs, lavender flower beds, and the white frangipani blossoms positioned in between the faade windows. Einstein Mimobot is the first installment in the new "The Legends of Mimobot Series," which commemorates some of the most influential, trail blazing figures in history. And who better to kick off the series than the man behind the famous E=MC2 in 6 different storage capacities 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB (ranging in price from $22.95 to $119.95) this collectible figurine captures both the studious and the playful
discount ray bans sides of Albert Einstein. When the USB drive is covered, the caricaturesque depiction of Einstein bears a stern expression, his lids half closed, his mouth closed, and his lips fully covered by his white mustache. Once you remove the cap, however, you giggle as you see your Einstein Mimobot bearing an entirely different expression, one inspired by perhaps the most widely replicated image of the "mad scientist," the photograph Sasse snapped on March 14, 1971, the night of Einstein 72nd birthday, in which the German intellectual is depicted with his eyes widened and his tongue sticking out mischievously. Featuring authentic Marvel illustrations, the iPhone cases will protect your smartphone, much like the heroes depicted on their exteriors protected planet Earth.

The X Men collection includes three of the most colorful and dynamic designs: first, there "Battle," in which Wolverine, Storm, Angel and Jean Grey are shown facing off against Iceman (shown second from top); "Shred," in which Wolverine wields his hatchet like claws mercilessly while battling an enemy; and "Conquer," in which Gambit and Angel stand against a fiery backdrop, presumably the explosive results of Gambit ability to change latent energy into kinetic one.

The three Thor cases are also impressive, particularly "Hammer" (shown third from top), in which the Nordic warrior raises his Mjolnir hammer, a lightning storm lighting up the sky behind him. In the brutal "Destroy" design, meanwhile, Thor rumbles with the assistance of Iron Man, both having teamed up to form The Avengers. In the "Blast" case, meanwhile, we see a close up of the blond god, his mouth agape as if he were shrieking a combat call, his blue eyes bloodshot with rage, and his silver helmet with the wing details positioned atop his head.

Another three cases were designed in honor of Iron Man and Captain America, respectively, each showcasing the superhero of choice in action, with Tony Stark slipping into his armored suit and unleashing his repulsor blast as needed and Captain America clutching his star emblazoned shield while dodging enemy fire.

You Can Prevent Your Baby From Having Horrible Birth Deffects

Extra folic acid taken prior to and during the early weeks of pregnancy has been proven to decrease the chances of a baby developing an open spine (spina bifida) or having no brain (anencephalic) at birth by 70%. Just adding 100 micrograms to breakfast cereals and bread has decreased the risk by 30%.

Your body needs vitamins to function. Some vitamins your body can make.

Others you must get from foods or take as a supplement. Over 70% of babies being born without a brain with open spines can be prevented by women taking extra folic acid prior to and during the first few weeks of pregnancy. Extra folic acid taken prior to and during the early weeks of pregnancy has been proven to decrease the chances of a baby developing an open spine (spina bifida) or

Your body needs vitamins to function. Some vitamins your body can make.

Others you must get
fake Michael Kors from foods are taken as a supplement. Moms taking extra folic acid prior to and during the first few weeks of pregnancy can prevent 70% of babies from being born with open spines or no brains. Open spines result in lifetime paralysis from the neck or waist down. A babys spine and brain start forming 18 30 days after conception. This is just a few days after you have missed your period. Fifty percent of US pregnancies are unplanned. This means by the time you figure out that you are pregnant and get an appointment to see your obstetrician it
Michael Kors handbags is already too late to prevent neural tube defects (open spine or no brain). Since we have started adding extra folic acid to the breakfast cereals and bread we have decreased the risk of these catastrophic birth defects by 30%.

However we are still not adding enough to the food supply to prevent the majority of these birth defects. All women should start on 1 milligram (1,000 micrograms) of folic acid at least one month before trying to get pregnant. This can prevent over 70% of the babies born without a brain or paralyzed from the neck or waist down.

Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate not found in nature. It is a water soluble B vitamin. This means you cannot get too much or toxic levels because your kidneys throwaway any excess your body doesn’t need in the urine. Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin. Toxic levels can develop if
replica Michael Kors handbags you take too much because your body cannot eliminate the excess.

Folate is from the
Michael Kors handbag outlet Latin word for leaf, folium.

Unintended pregnancies account for over 50% of all pregnancies. By the time these women figure out that they are pregnant and get an appointment to see their obstetrician it is almost
cheap Michael Kors always too late to start folic acid to prevent these serious birth defects. Because of this fact, since January 1988 the FDA has require cereal makers and grain producers to add the equivalent of 100 micrograms (1/10 of a milligram) of folic acid to these foods. Unfortunately it takes 400 micrograms to prevent 70% of neural tube defects. One hundred micrograms prevents only 30% of the neural tube defects. The FDA was afraid higher doses would cover up other diseases. That assumption, unfortunately for babies, was false.

To get 400 micrograms of folic acid you would have to eat almost an entire loaf of bread each day. Over 50 breakfast cereals now have 400 micrograms per serving. Read the label. If it says 400 micrograms of folic acid per serving or 100% of the recommended daily allowance then that is adequate.

Most women of childbearing age should be taking 400 micrograms of folic acid or a multivitamin with at least 400 micrograms of folic acid every day. Most obstetricians now use prenatal and preconceptions vitamins containing 1000 micrograms (1 milligram) of folic acid.

In women with previous pregnancies that had babies with neural tube defects we now recommend starting at 10 times the normal dose (4 mg per

day) at least one month before stopping birth control pills or trying to get pregnant. This is been shown to reduce the chance of having another child with an open neural tube defect over 70%.

In addition to not getting adequate amounts of folic acid, approximately 5% of women with recurrent neural tube defects have an inherited defect that prevents conversion of
Michael Kors outlet folic acid to one of the
fake Michael kors handbags outlet active forms necessary for the body called tetrahydrofolate. Much higher doses of folic acid may be necessary to override this defect. A new prenatal vitamin may by pass this defect by providing the active form. Further research is necessary. If you are sexually active see your doctor. This could help you prevent an unplanned pregnancy or serious birth defects in your baby.Articles Connexes:

But after getting worse over the next few days, she suddenly freezes like a statue, eyes blank and vacant, mouth contorted in a silent scream. She just lies like this, motionless, in a hospital bed. Then finally she wakes up, and acts like she’s possessed by a goddamned alien body snatcher she’s emotionless and distant at first, then starts gouging at her eyes and/or violently sexually assaulting people."I told you not to mix NyQuil and Ambien!"

It’s not the first act of a horror movie, but a real, baffling disease that had doctors puzzled at the beginning of the 20th century. It’s called encephalitis lethargica, or the sleeping sickness, and it struck
Michael Kors outlet the world as an epidemic just after the Spanish flu died down. Nobody has any idea where it came from or where it went.

It began with victims complaining of a sore throat, right before it escalated into a goddamned living nightmare, the victims afflicted with hallucinations and madness before their bodies ultimately locked up. While sufferers appeared to be asleep, they were actually fully conscious but unable to move. Many died during this stage, but for those who recovered, the nightmare was far from over."After discussing what a pain in
cheap michael kors the ass recovery will be, his father and I have decided to pull the plug."

Survivors of the sleeping disease suffered horrifying behavioral problems for the rest of their lives, becoming excessively violent and regardless of gender somewhat rapey. On top of all this, they became emotionally indifferent, unable to recognize, for example, the beauty of art. Ten years after the epidemic struck, new cases suddenly stopped appearing, its only legacy being the alien clones it left behind.

Nearly a century later, doctors still don’t know what the hell was going on there, although
Cheap Michael Kors handbags they realize it was some kind of brain thing. One hypothesis is that the bacteria that caused the sore throat triggered an immune response that also destroyed parts of the brain, but many scientists still think a virus is the more likely culprit.

Seems a little lazy, Science.

In the meantime, the occasional case still crops up, to the scratching of many heads. Now try not to think about this the next time you get a cold, you poor bastard.

4. Jumping Frenchmen of MaineDue to either a healthy sense of humor or an absolute lack of imagination, neurologists have settled on "Jumping Frenchmen of Maine disorder" to describe the
Michael kors handbags outlet bizarre condition first documented in the northern parts of Maine by George Miller Beard in 1878. That’s when Beard noticed that a lot of the French Canadian lumberjacks of the region were, uncharacteristically, jumping and screaming like little girls at the slightest provocation."Here’s where the t HOLY PANTS SHITTING CHRIST!"

And even weirder, victims dealing with Jumping Frenchmen aren’t just easily spooked sufferers will enact basically any simple command, as long as you shout it at them suddenly, like "throw that beer" or "kick that stool" or even "punch that guy." It’s apparently due to some heightened state of suggestibility, combined with an overactive startle reflex that turns victims into short term robot slaves. And no, this is not a
replica Michael Kors outlet good thing to have when you are frequently found holding a giant axe.

The absurdly specific disease appears endemic to parts of northern Maine, and is largely restricted to those French Canadian lumberjacks, which suggests that it may be genetic, or else it’s environmental, or somehow psychological, which all together rule out practically nothing. Some victims also display signs of echolalia (automatically repeating sounds they hear), which led some to believe that they suffered from either a form of Tourette’s or being a giant parrot in a human skin suit, but investigations show it doesn’t appear related to either condition.

3. Nodding SyndromeAround 2010, a mysterious disease came
Michael Kors handbags outlet to the attention of medical professionals when it cropped up in East Africa, which is saying something, because there are so many awful diseases out there that it can be difficult to track them all. It’s called nodding syndrome, and for good reason: Victims are struck by an uncontrollable head nodding, as if they are
michael kors handbags outlet forever enjoying a catchy song that only they can hear."What is love? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me ."Articles Connexes:

Top 7 Steps In Forming A Buyer’s Co

As an individual buyer, you probably spend a lot of time comparing costs, looking through flyers for special deals, and keeping track of
Michael Kors handbags bargains or manufacturer’s "special purchase" offers. Everyone knows that buying in bulk gets you the best possible prices, but most often one individual
replica Michael Kors handbags or business finds it prohibitive to buy in bulk.

But by joining forces with other consumers and consolidating your buying power, buying in bulk becomes very affordable and manageable. More and more business people are looking into the power of "cooperative" buying in short, forming a "co op."

First of all, it belongs to the folks who use it those who have joined together to provide themselves
replica Michael Kors outlet with whatever it is they need. In other words, the "raison d’tre" for a co op is to serve the needs of its members.

Generally, the member owners share equally in the control of their organization they may meet regularly, elect directors or advisory boards from among themselves, and even hire people to manage the day to day affairs of the organization.

In any case, members are expected to invest in shares in the business in order to provide capital for the operation. This is usually accomplished through imposing an initial membership fee to join the organization, and then an annual fee thereafter to remain a member. In
cheap Michael Kors addition to the obvious benefit of having greater buying power, all net savings left after expenses are traditionally returned to
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet members either in the form
cheap michael kors of greater discounts on purchases, or annual cash pay outs in the form of dividends, or both.

Some of the steps involved in forming a co op include:

Hold a meeting, and appoint a steering or advisory committee.

Once the advisory committee has completed a survey or needs analysis, a vote can be taken on whether to proceed.

Develop a business plan, and draw up the necessary legal papers to incorporate.

Hold a meeting of all potential charter members
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet to adopt the by laws and elect a board of directors. Assign responsibilities to implement the business plan.Articles Connexes:

Downtown Partnership team up to keep downtown safe and inviting

Spokane Police is
cheap ray bans asking the community to establish a code of conduct to help make downtown a safer place to visit.

On Wednesday, the department teamed up with the Downtown Spokane Partnership to ask people what they would like to see addressed in the downtown area.

There are a variety of answers to what could make the downtown experience better. While some of those requests are personal, Spokane Police and the Downtown Spokane Partnership are focusing on some of the other issues that can be fixed.

"Make it more comfortable by addressing things that are not just crime in the downtown," Captain Judi Carl said. "There are more behavior problems that seem to be a concern down here."

Jaywalking, panhandling, littering, loitering and big groups making loud noises are some of the more common occurrences.

"Those are a lot of the pressing issues that really create a sense of un comfort," Mark Richard, president of Downtown Spokane Partnership said.

Starting May 1, police and downtown ambassadors will give out warnings in hope of getting voluntary compliance. However, if need be, police will cite or arrest people as a last resort.

Captain Carl said they’ll also offer services to transients and others living on the streets. It’s part of their plan to implement the City’s sit and lie ordinance that bans people from loitering on downtown sidewalks.

"They can look towards education, they can look toward jobs, they can find out where there are services just to improve their quality of life," Captain Carl said.

So people like Ray Tansy can have a stress free outing.

"I like to come downtown," Tansy said. "I don’t like
