IN BRIEF - Continual Improvement And Best Practices For IUU Vessel Listing Measures In Tuna RFMOs

UNITED STATES
Monday, October 20, 2014

 

To strengthen its efforts to combat IUU fishing activities, the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) requested a review the IUU Vessel Listing measures in regional fisheries management organisations responsible for tuna management (t-RFMOs). The purpose of the review was to identify deficiencies and weaknesses in the current IUU listing procedures and develop guidance on best practices to support and strengthen efforts for the conservation and management of tuna resources.

 

Overall, the t-RFMOs IUU Vessel Listing measures are largely consistent, particularly the measures adopted more recently. However there are a number of differences between the measures as highlighted in the summary table of the t-RFMO IUU Vessel Listing measures. A thorough analysis of the IUU Vessel Listing measures is provided at Part II.

IN BRIEF - Fish oil not effective in reducing irregular heartbeat: Study

CANADA
Friday, October 17, 2014

 

Researchers from the Montreal Heart Institute in Canada studied 337 patients who have atrial fibrillation. Some of them were assigned to take 4g of fish oil in a day while others were assigned to take placebo. The random assignment lasted for 16 months.

 

The researchers learned that 64.1 percent of patients who were taking fish oil reportedly showed a recurrence of experiencing atrial fibrillation. This is higher than the recurrence rate of 63.2 percent among those who were taking placebo.

Additionally, the researchers also learned that fish oil supplements do not effectively reduce inflammation which could be the reason why it lacks efficacy.

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, October 17, 2014

 

A celebrity-backed campaign to keep bluefin tuna off dinner plates and in the sea is reaping environmental rewards.

Populations of the tuna remain at historically low levels, but the numbers of Atlantic bluefin are rising for the first time in decades.

IN BRIEF - 'Fish, a cheap source of protein'

INDIA
Friday, October 17, 2014

With nearly one-fourth of the population of the country malnourished, fish can be a cheap source of protein to alleviate hunger, said, Shivakumar Magada, professor of Aquatic Biology, College of Fisheries, during the inauguration of the ‘World Food Day’ celebrations here on Thursday 16th of October 2014.

He said the country had more than INR 2 million km of rivers, canals and coastlines as well as 6.47 million hectares of reservoirs, water bodies and lakes available for fishing. “While the World Health Organisation recommends per capita fish consumption to be 18 kg, it is just 11.3 kg in India,” he said. The function followed the theme, ‘Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth’.

IN BRIEF - Europe’s new fishing rules are absolute madness

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, October 17, 2014

 

Just when the seas are full of fish again, Europe’s ban on discards means we can’t catch them, says Bertie Armstrong

 

The independence referendum was of major significance for Scottish fishing, given that it held the potential for uncertain and abrupt changes in our relationship with Europe. However, we now have the decision, the path has been chosen and it’s time to focus hard on our future.

While we know where we stand constitutionally in the UK, Europe remains hugely important for us because of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). Our industry is wrapped very tightly in the regulations comprising the policy – almost every aspect of the business has a governing rule, and, coming our way from the revision of the CFP (the new one has been in force from 1 January this year) are some serious challenges.

IN BRIEF - Caught in New Zealand, crumbed in China and packed here in Australia: 'Ridiculous' journey of Coles fish to end up on supermarket shelf

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, October 17, 2014

 

There's plenty of fish in the sea, but this one has come a very long way.

Sustainable fishing campaigners have described the extensive international journey of a Coles crumbed dory fillet from the ocean to the supermarket shelf as 'ridiculous'.

According to the packaging, these dory fillets were caught in New Zealand, then crumbed in China and then shipped back to the south Pacific, where they were packaged in Australia.

At a rough estimate, the fish would have travelled at least 17000km - possibly more - before it finally arrived on Australian supermarket shelves.

IN BRIEF - Seaweed major source of Indonesian farmers' income

INDONESIA
Friday, October 17, 2014

 

JAKARTA - Cultivation of seaweed as a major source of income for tens of thousands of Indonesian farmers is being intensified to improve their economy.

 

The Indonesian island resort of Bali was the first place where extensive commercial seaweed farming began about thirty years ago.

Since then the cultivation and processing of seaweeds has become a significant industry that provides an income to tens of thousands of people in coastal areas across the country.

Indonesia has several varieties of seaweed in abundance and their cultivation has the potential to improve the countrys economy, Ina Primiana Syinar, professor at Pajajaran Universitys Faculty of Economics stated.
