IN BRIEF - New international marine co-operative hopes to bring jobs, innovation to Quebec's Lower North Shore

CANADA
Thursday, November 28, 2019

A new international marine co-operative is building its headquarters in the tiny Lower North Shore village of St. Paul's River, where it hopes to bring jobs as it seeks to make the fishing industry more sustainable.  

The International Blue Co-operative was founded earlier this month, and is made up of community leaders, researchers, policy makers and businesses from around the world, including Mexico, France and Australia.

Its goal is to promote sustainable marine practices, especially in remote communities. "We could be the hub of this and lead it," said president Kimberly Buffett.

IN BRIEF - Scotland Supports Norwegian Declaration Against Fish Crime

NORWAY
Thursday, November 28, 2019

In 2018, Norway initiated a political declaration against fish crime. On Monday, Scotland’s Fisheries Minister Fergus Ewing signed the declaration. A total of 26 countries have joined Norway’s initiative, according to Kyst og Fjord.

- We know that there, regrettably, is some serious crime in the fish industry. If we are to fight fish crime, we have to stand united. That is why I am glad that Scotland is now onboard, says Norwegian Fisheries and Seafood Minister Harald T. Nesvik.

Norway is working towards having the UN General Assembly recognise fish crime as a problem, however, the efforts have been unsuccessful so far. The international declaration is thus the only international political declaration in its area, which makes it important.

IN BRIEF - Indonesia’s new fisheries minister may go easy on trawl nets, poachers’ boats

INDONESIA
Thursday, November 28, 2019

JAKARTA - Indonesia’s new fisheries minister looks set to unwind hard-fought reforms implemented by his predecessor, in a series of moves critics say will favor large-scale fishing companies over small fishers.

Edhy Prabowo, who took office in October, previously said he would review the regulations put in place by the former minister, Susi Pudjiastuti, including bans on the use of trawl and seine nets, known locally as cantrang, and the sinking of foreign fishing vessels seized in Indonesian waters.

“For cantrang, some have asked me to allow it, while others have asked to ban it because it damages the environment,” Edhy told reporters in Jakarta on Nov. 8. “I’m going to evaluate it. I promise I will have a dialog with the people.”

IN BRIEF - NZ King Salmon faces local opposition in attempt to add pens to Pelorus Sound farm

NEW ZEALAND
Thursday, November 28, 2019

A decision on whether to add four pens to an existing salmon farm in the Marlborough Sounds has faced strong opposition.

Hearings were held in front of a commissioner in Blenheim this week, to determine whether New Zealand King Salmon could add the net pens, along with anchors and surface floats, to the Waitata Reach salmon farm in the outer Pelorus Sound / Te Hoiere.

Community groups raised concerns about the effects on the seabed and king shag seabirds. They also wanted more information about how many fish had been dying at the farm.

IN BRIEF - Damage to the Italian fishing industry due to severe weather

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, November 28, 2019

In recent weeks, repeated episodes of bad weather have swept across Italy and its islands, causing serious damage to its fishing industry.

From an initial survey of the fishing fleets affected, it is estimated that the losses in just one week - between lost earnings and problems affecting fishing and aquaculture facilities - amount to EUR 60 million. The figure could increase if account is taken of the number of fishing days lost (1 fishing boat out of 3 had to remain in port), the silted up ports and damage to boat hulls.

It is small-scale fishing that has borne the brunt of the damage, especially on the north Adriatic coast, where clam fishing has also been heavily damaged.

IN BRIEF - Study identifies climate change threat to fish diversity in Murray-Darling Basin

AUSTRALIA
Thursday, November 28, 2019

Native freshwater fish diversity in the Murray-Darling Basin could be under serious threat from climate change in coming decades, a new study has found. This loss of biodiversity could result in a further decline in the health of the Basin.

The study, which has been published in PLOS ONE, was co-led by Griffith University researcher Associate Professor Mark Kennard from the Australian Rivers Institute and visiting Brazilian PhD student Anielly Oliveira.

Also involved were Brazilian collaborators from the State University of Maringa, the Federal University of Goias and the Federal University of Technology Parana, as well as Australian collaborators from La Trobe University and the NSW Department of Fisheries.

UNITED STATES
Thursday, November 28, 2019

The North America Aquaculture market is accounted to US$ 6,432.8 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account to US$ 9,685.1 Mn by 2027.

Aquaculture has high protein content due to which it is gaining more acceptance by a larger customer base. The shift in consumer lifestyle along with inclination towards healthy food products, is also expected the growth of the market across the US. The manufacturers in the region are focusing more towards innovation and development to boost the growth of North America aquaculture market.

IN BRIEF - Fish genetic practices defended

UNITED STATES
Thursday, November 28, 2019

Critics of hatchery-raised fish claim the hatchery-rearing process affects fish genetics negatively, but Pahsimeroi Fish Hatchery Manager Doug Engemann said it’s more complicated.

At an Oct. 22 2019 panel discussion, Trout Unlimited scientist Helen Neville said raising fish in hatcheries isn’t a viable option to replace decreasing numbers of salmon in the Salmon River. She said the domestication process affects the DNA of fish because being raised in a tank adds natural selection pressures not seen in a natural environment.

Engemann, who has been with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game for 32 years, said these pressures can affect fish, but they affect some fish more than others.

IN BRIEF - PAFCO clarifies reduced operations and Bumble Bee’s bankruptcy

FIJI
Tuesday, November 26, 2019

The Pacific Fishing Company has today clarified that operations in Levuka have been reduced to a four-day working week with the challenge of albacore tuna supply affecting operations.

PAFCO’s Chair Ikbal Jannif says there is a worldwide shortage of albacore tuna which has seen their supply go from 23 thousand metric tons down to only 16 point five thousand metric tons this year.

As a result, PAFCO’s 600 full-time staff have over the last two months been earning only eighty percent of what they would normally take home because of the reduced working week.
