ZAMBIA
Wednesday, July 26, 2017

The Aquaculture Development Association of Zambia (ADAZ) has urged Government to put in place measures that will regulate the importation of fish to ensure quality products enter the market.

ADAZ chairman Fisho Mwale said there is need to safeguard the sub-sector from imports that have an adverse effect on the health of both the humans and the fish.

Mr Mwale said currently, there is an outbreak of tilapia lake virus, which has ravaged most East Asian countries.

“Zambia has been importing most of her fish from East Asia following shortages of fish in the country. Most fish coming from East Asia is [very] cheap, but is diseased fish, throw-away fish usually called rants, and it is finding its way into our market.

IN BRIEF - U.S. Senate looks to renew ‘Frankenfish’ import ban

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 26, 2017

With support from Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Congress is preparing to renew a ban on the importation of genetically engineered salmon.

On Friday 28th of July 2017, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee unanimously approved a bill funding agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for another year. Included within that budget bill, which now faces a vote of the full Senate, is a provision renewing the ban.

“This is important stuff to our local economies,” Murkowski said before the committee approved the bill.

The target of the bill is a fast-growing engineered salmon approved for human consumption by the FDA in 2015. That salmon, known as the AquAdvantage, is produced by AquaBounty Technologies. The salmon is fertilized in Canada and farmed in Panamanian pens.

IN BRIEF - Oxygen-sucking algae bloom blamed for fish die-off in south Boulder's Tantra Lake

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Boulder officials believe high heat and recent rains led to an algae bloom in Tantra Lake that killed hundreds of fish over the weekend.

The die-off alarmed residents of the nearby apartments, who worried that some kind of chemical exposure may have been to blame.

But Andy Taylor, of Boulder's Water Quality and Environmental Services, said that after an inspection of the south Boulder lake on Monday afternoon, officials believe it was algae that ultimately killed the fish.

IN BRIEF - Aquaculture environmental assessment decision has NDP’s support

CANADA
Wednesday, July 26, 2017

The provincial NDP is backing last week’s court decision requiring a full environmental impact statement (EIS) before Grieg NL’s proposed salmon aquaculture project in Placentia Bay can proceed.

In a news release, NDP Leader Earle McCurdy called the decision a significant victory for everyone who has been calling for such an assessment.

“We need jobs and development, but not at any cost,” he said.

McCurdy said the provincial government erred by not ordering the EIS in 2016, delaying the project for a year.

IN BRIEF - Scientists hope fish clues aid spinal cord injury treatment

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Edinburgh scientists hope the results of a study into the nervous systems of a species of small exotic fish could hold clues to new therapies for people with paralysing spinal cord injuries.

Edinburgh University researchers said they have uncovered a "vital mechanism" in the damaged spines of zebrafish that helps nerve connections to regrow.

Zebrafish can regain full movement within four weeks of injury.

For people, damage to the spinal cord is permanent and results in paralysis.
