IN BRIEF - Danish Parliament agrees on low-impact fishing scheme

DENMARK
Tuesday, November 19, 2019

An agreement has been reached by a broad majority of the Danish Parliament on a coastal fishing scheme which offers advantages for fishing with low-impact gear such as static nets and seine nets.

Under the scheme, fishing quotas are reserved for coastal fisheries and fishing with low-impact gears, with open and closed options, with fishermen in the open sector able to opt out after three years if they prefer not to be permanently committed.

The closed sector has been made more attractive with larger quota supplements when low-impact fishing gears are used. The open sector of the coastal scheme will be evaluated after three years.

IN BRIEF - Sustainable fishing staying afloat in developed world, sinking in poorer regions

UNITED NATIONS
Tuesday, November 19, 2019

“Fisheries are facing an important crossroad and the world needs a new vision in the 21st century”, the UN agency lead with in a press statement, echoing the main message by it’s Director General, Qu Dongyu, at the opening of a major conference on the matter, which opened Monday 18th of November 2019.

By 2050, humans will be nearly 10 billion in number, and “land alone will not feed us”, Mr. Donguy explained, thus, the world will need to increasingly rely on aquatic species to eat.

The International Symposium on Fisheries Sustainability, taking place from 18 to 21 November at FAO’s Rome headquarters, convenes researchers, business people and members of various other sectors to identify how to maximize food from the world’s rivers and oceans, without compromising the health of aquatic ecosystems.

Greenpeace oceans campaigner Jessica Desmond said they're "scraping the sea floor clean", and showed no signs of stopping.

IN BRIEF - NY Sea Grant Contributes to Marine Aquaculture Research Projects

UNITED STATES
Friday, November 15, 2019

Two important aquaculture studies on New York’s marine waters will be administered at Stony Brook University through New York Sea Grant (NYSG). These projects are part of a national suite of 42 research projects and collaborative programs supported by USD 16 million in federal funding by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to advance sustainable aquaculture in the United States.

“Aquaculture as a source of sustainable food, healthy habitat and clean water, and economic opportunity has gained considerable, and growing, national and global attention in the past several years. However, there is still much to learn. New York Sea Grant is pleased to be able to participate with diverse partners on a suite of grants supporting collaborative research aimed at understanding and informing the potential of shellfish, finfish, and seaweed aquaculture across the state,” said NYSG Director Dr. Rebecca Shuford.

IN BRIEF - Bigger doesn't mean better for hatchery-released salmon

UNITED STATES
Friday, November 15, 2019

Fish permeate the culture of the Pacific Northwest (PNW). In particular, the iconic salmon has been an important part of the region for thousands of years, from ancient Native American trade routes and legends to modern fishing and sporting. In the area of the Salish Sea—inland waterways including Puget Sound, the Strait of Georgia, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca—the cultures, economies, and technologies there are all impacted and influenced by salmon. It is no wonder, then, that salmon are of high conservation interest and constitute a large proportion of hatchery-raised fish in the region.

A recent study in the Ecological Society of America's journal Ecosphere examines hatchery practices in regard to how the Chinook salmon that are released back into the natural waterways in the PNW are affecting wild populations.

IN BRIEF - Salmon farms cut antibiotic use by 60%

WORLDWIDE
Friday, November 15, 2019

The salmon sector used 1,011.3 kilograms in 2018, a decrease based primarily on a reduction in the number of treatments required in the seawater phase of production.

This overall use equated to 6.5 mg/kg of production, slightly higher than the ambitious target of 5mg/kg established by RUMA’s Targets Task Force in 2017, but antibiotic treatments are still relatively infrequent in the salmon farming sector. The figure for 2017 was 16.1 mg/kg.

The report noted that as poikilotherms (cold blooded fish), salmon can see their health compromised by variations in the quality and composition of the water, including the presence of potentially harmful organisms such as algae and plankton.

IN BRIEF - MOWI ASA Press Release: Update on the allegations of collusion

NORWAY
Friday, November 15, 2019

With reference to the previously announced European Commission inspection which concerned possible collusion between Norwegian producers of farmed Norwegian Atlantic salmon and class action complaints in the USA related to the same matter.

Further to this Mowi has been informed that we will receive a subpoena from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in the USA where they are opening a criminal investigation involving allegations of similar conduct.   

Mowi considers that there are no basis for the EU inspection and that the class action complaints clearly lack merit and are entirely unsubstantiated. This equally applies to any criminal investigation in the US.  

Mowi will fully cooperate with the Department of Justice and will provide as requested all information in relation to our US subsidiaries.

There is no new information regarding the European Commission’s case handling.

This information is subject to the disclosure requirements pursuant to section 5-12 of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act.
