IN BRIEF - Chinese fishing technology extirpates Binh Dinh’s tunas

VIET NAM
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.

IN BRIEF - University of New Hampshire launches aquaculture farming project

UNITED STATES
Thursday, September 29, 2016

Durham, N.H. – Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have launched an integrated aquaculture farming research project that aims to provide a model for integrating land-based aquaculture systems with hydroponic plant production systems that can be used locally to increase food production.  

NH Agricultural Experiment Station researcher Todd Guerdat, assistant professor of agricultural engineering, is leading the project at the Kingman Research Farm, an experiment station facility in Madbury.

“Over half of the world’s seafood is produced from aquaculture. Eighty percent of the seafood we eat here in the United States is imported resulting in nearly an annual $11 billion trade deficit for seafood alone. We need to take control of our food production systems by developing a sustainable U.S.-based aquaculture industry,” Guerdat says.

IN BRIEF - Newly introduced fish species set to replace imported salmon

FINLAND
Thursday, September 29, 2016

The Natural Resources Institute of Finland ("Luke") says that a species of fish called the nelma may be a contender for a replacement to salmon imported from Norway.

The nelma is a silver-coloured and migratory predatory fish that is well suited to being farmed. In nature nelmas or sheefish can grow to 1.5 metres in length and more than 20 kg, though the median weight for the creature is around 9 kilos.

The first nelma spawn was brought through quarantine from Russia to the Laukaa fishery some six years ago.

"The nelma is great," says Petri Heinimaa from Luke. "It's big, tasty and resilient to diseases. It's mostly found in Siberia, northern Alaska and Canada," says Petri Heinimaa from Luke.

IN BRIEF - Global fish and seafood market will see consistent healthy growth through to 2020, says MarketLine

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, September 29, 2016

 

LONDON - The global fish and seafood market has grown steadily in recent years, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8% between 2011 and 2015, according to data from research company MarketLine.

MarketLine's latest report shows that market values have increased in all regions. Global growth, however, is primarily driven by Asia-Pacific and South America, as the swelling middle classes begin to buy more expensive products through the organized retail channel. Despite this, the US is still the single largest market, and it is important for the global market that sales there continue to grow.

MarketLine analyst, Nicholas Wyatt, explains: "The US is the largest market by value for fish and seafood, accounting for 13.9% of global revenues. Value increases, while lower than in many other countries, have been driven by increased health awareness, as US public health bodies recommend eating two pieces of fish a week. Such advice is not unique to the US, and improved health consciousness is set to help the market globally in the mid to long term."

AUSTRALIA
Thursday, September 29, 2016

A controversial salmon farming project on Tasmania's east coast has been given the go ahead by the local council, pending an independent review.

Salmon producer Tassal wants to open 28 pens at Okehampton Bay near Triabunna.

The Glamorgan Spring Bay council last night voted six to one in favour of rezoning an area for aquaculture uses and constructing a jetty.

But the project cannot go ahead until an independent review ordered by the State Government is completed.

IN BRIEF - Activists protest against unsustainable tuna at Eastbourne store

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, September 29, 2016

Activists took to the aisles of an Eastbourne Sainsbury’s in a protest against unsustainable tuna on September 24 (Saturday) 2016.

Greenpeace protesters cleared the shelves of John West tuna at the Arndale Centre store in an effort to put pressure on the supermarket to drop the brand. They left signs stating that the tuna was out of stock and had ‘Gone West’ as part of a national event targeting more than 70 of the supermarket’s stores.

Will McCallum, Head of Oceans at Greenpeace said, “Sainsbury’s presents itself as a supermarket that takes ethics and sustainability seriously. “So we’re sending Sainsbury’s a message that it’s ludicrous that they source sustainable fish for their own brand tuna while continuing to stock dirty John West tuna on the next shelf.

AMERICAN SAMOA
Thursday, September 29, 2016

 

American Samoa's largest private employer, StarKist Samoa, will shut down operations during the week starting October 10th 2016 because of a lack of fish.

This was the second time in the past year StarKist Samoa had temporarily shut down due to fish supply issues.

StarKist spokesperson Michelle Faist said fewer deliveries of fish were now being made to American Samoa as a result of the closure of the high seas, US EEZs, and other traditional fishing grounds to the US fishing fleets.
