IN BRIEF - Chinese fishing technology extirpates Binh Dinh’s tunas
Friday, November 23, 2012
The Binh Dinh province has 2300 vehicles for offshore fishing, including 1500 ones for tuna fishing with which local fishermen have caught 9041 tons of fish so far this year.
Binh Dinh’s tuna had been favored by clients thanks to its high and stable quality-until the day a lot of ship owners stopped fishing with the traditional technology and begin fishing with imported high voltage lamp systems.
Van Cong Viet, a fisherman in Hai Cang ward of Quy Nhon City, the owner of two fishing boats, said that the tunas caught with the new technology have been refused by merchants. Reasoning the low quality, the merchants only pay 85,000 dong per kilo. Meanwhile, local fishermen previously sold at 137,000 dong.
South Korea and Russia signed an agreement on the 2014 fishing quota for South Korea that is a drop from 2013's figure on a request from local companies, the fisheries ministry said Monday the 21st of April 2014.
The federal government once again has delayed adopting a much-litigated regulation aimed at reducing massive fish kills at power plants, a proposal with implications for generating units in New Jersey and potentially affecting the reliability of the electric grid.
Mozambican company Empresa Moçambicana de Atum (EMATUM), set up by the government for tuna fishing, is due to start operating in 2014, the Fishing Minister, Victor Borges said in Sofala, cited by Mozambican newspaper O País.
Making fish sauce is a way of life for residents in this village near Da Nang, but can they make the traditional product successful in modern Viet Nam or around the world?
Situated at the foot of the Hai Van Pass, 17km northwest of downtown Da Nang city, Nam O village boasts pristine beaches and a thriving fishing industry. The village of 5,000 has produced fish sauce since the 19th century, and the trade still earns villagers their livelihood.
As an all-party legislative committee prepares to begin a pressure campaign to convince Ottawa to change its mind on cuts to the inshore shrimp quotas, a Memorial University think tank is equally concerned about the impact such measures will have on smaller boats. The offshore sector, or the larger boats, will be hit with only a small cut in the quota.
