IN BRIEF - Norway’s seafood watchdog facing overhaul

NORWAY
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

Following an investigation, the global services and accounting organisation KPMG delivered a potentially crushing verdict last week on the organisation, essentially saying its systems, planning and monitoring supervision practices were not fit for purpose.

KPMG also said that management, the use of resources and some aspects of security were simply not good enough, adding that significant improvements were urgently needed.

Seafood Norway, the body which represents fishing and aquaculture companies, has welcomed the report.

Its CEO, Geir Ove Ystmark, said Norway had market access to more than 140 countries so it was vital the seafood industry had an efficient and well-functioning food inspection body to watch over catching, processing and the entire value chain in the aquaculture sector.

IN BRIEF - Norway Detects Radioactive Leak From Sunken Soviet Sub, Sees 'No Danger to People or Fish'

NORWAY
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

The Komsomolets sank 7 April 1989, after catching fire southwest of Bjørnøya in the Norwegian Sea. During the heroic attempts to extinguish the fire and save the reactor, and the ensuing ordeal in icy waters, 42 lives were lost, in one of the biggest tragedies in the history of the Soviet Navy.

The wrecked Soviet nuclear submarine Komsomolets is still leaking radioactive waste, 30 years after it sank southwest of Bjørnøya, a new report by the Norwegian Maritime Research Institute has confirmed.

This summer, the Institute of Marine Research, joined by their Russian colleagues and the Directorate of Radiation and Nuclear Safety (DSA), conducted direct research on the Komsomolets using a remotely controlled mini-sub, for the first time in thirty years.

IN BRIEF - Prawn farming extended as 90% of marine resources off Myeik archipelago depletes

MYANMAR
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

As 90 percent of marine resources in the sea of Myeik archipelago is depleting in Taninthayi Region, prawn farming is being extended, said entrepreneurs.

Local businesspeople have to pay greater attention to farming so that their businesses will not stop operation due to marine resource shortages caused by overfishing in the sea.

The extended farming plan comes as seawater prawn faming is more successful on the islands.

"We are losing about 90 percent of marine resources in the sea. So we established prawn farming. If fish and prawn catching no longer exists in the sea, people and staff from this marine industry will get into trouble. We do this mainly to prevent those businesses from ceasing operation, to improve State revenue and to ensure regional development. Our company has about 360 staff, 70 percent of whom are from Kyunsu Township. We are doing prawn farming in vacant lands and salt fields. There is little land that is being depleted. But we do crop-substitute cultivation. Last week, we planted about 80,000 trees. Currently, we are planning to plant over 100,000 saplings in Kyagyiaw," said Kyaw Lin, manager of Pyi Phyo Tun Seawater Fish Farming Company.

IN BRIEF - Fisheries war: Ireland condemns UK over hard Brexit trade deal - ‘Unmitigated disaster’

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

British waters are critical to the Irish fishing industry with the two top species - mackerel and prawns - 60 percent and 40 percent respectively dependent on UK seas. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed deliver Brexit by taking the UK out of the European Union on January 31, and giving the EU a tight deadline of before the end of next year to agree a free trade agreement with the UK. Sean O’Donoghue, the chief executive of the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation, has warned the Irish fishing industry is 30 percent dependent on UK waters.

He said Boris Johnson has “signed up for this”, which is a “good starting point”, but warned building a solid foundation does not mean a positive result will come from this.

Irish vessels, which catch around a third of landings off Britain, will continue to be able to fish in those wars for now.

IN BRIEF - Mystery solved: MPI reveals probable source of thousands of dead fish around Hauraki Gulf

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, December 16, 2019

Up to 40 tonnes of dead blue mackerel could be sloshing around in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf, a coastal fisheries expert says.

Locals have reported cleaning trailerloads of fish off the shores of Kawau Island, while numerous reports of dead fish have been received by the Ministry for Primary Industries in December 2019.

Posters on social media said birds weren't feeding on the fish - apart from pecking out their eyes.

IN BRIEF - Mekong basin's vanishing fish signal tough times ahead in Cambodia

CAMBODIA
Monday, December 16, 2019

Tbong sits in the shade of a makeshift stilt hut over the edge of Tonlé Sap lake, surrounded by curious children.

“Snake, catfish, elephant fish …” he says, his eyes crinkled against the sun. “Before, a long time ago … the lake had a lot of catfish.”

But in just one generation, everything has changed. Fish species are dwindling, plant life is dying and the entire Mekong system is breaking apart. For the children gathered around Tbong, a plentiful Tonlé Sap is nothing but a story.

Situated in the heart of the lower Mekong basin, Tonlé Sap is the largest freshwater lake in south-east Asia. The lake and its surrounding floodplains were designated a Unesco biosphere reserve in 1997 and the lake supports the breeding, feeding and harvesting of hundreds of species of fish and other freshwater produce.

IN BRIEF - FDA approves fish oil-based drug to prevent heart problems

UNITED STATES
Monday, December 16, 2019

The FDA approved the first-ever fish oil-based drug for preventing heart problems.

It's called Vascepa and is designed for high-risk patients already taking cholesterol-lowering pills. It's supposed to reduce high levels of triglycerides.

Triglycerides can play a role in the hardening of arteries, which increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Doctors say the drug reduced heart health risks by about 25% inpatient testing.

IN BRIEF - Petuna's Macquarie Harbour pen broken in storm releases 50,000 small atlantic salmon

AUSTRALIA
Monday, December 16, 2019

A fray of fishy fugitives may not be an early Christmas present to West Coast anglers, an expert has said.

About 50,000 small atlantic salmon escaped from the nets of Petuna's Macquarie Harbour farms recently, the company announced.

Petuna strategy manager Richard Miller said the fish escaped during rough West Coast weather when a pen broke from its mooring.
