IN BRIEF - Record number of salmon return to Russian River

Friday, November 23, 2012

A record number of Chinook and Coho salmon are moving up the Russian River to spawn, an indication of rich ocean conditions necessary for those fish to survive, fisheries biologists said.

It may also be an indication that the millions of dollars being spent on habitat restoration to keep those fish from extinction may also be working.

There have been 6,348 Chinook salmon photographed as of Wednesday 21 Nov. moving through the fish ladders at the Sonoma County Water Agency's dam at Forestville, which is inflated during low river flows to create a pool for the agency's water pumping system.

IN BRIEF - Great Barrier Reef dredging report sparks fresh calls from Marine Conservation Society for dredge ban

Thursday, March 26, 2015


An environmental group has renewed its calls to ban dredging, after a report about its impacts on the Great Barrier Reef.


The report by an independent panel has found dredge plumes could have more of an impact than first thought, because sediment could travel further towards coral reefs.

The Australian Marine Conservation Society's Felicity Wishart said dredging should be banned altogether.

IN BRIEF - SeaDragon signs new agreements for shark liver oil

Thursday, March 26, 2015


SeaDragon, which manufactures fish oil for health supplements, has terminated a contract with a charter vessel that supplied deep-sea shark liver oil and signed two new supply agreements, highlighting the challenge of ensuring it can source enough raw material.


The Nelson-based company today said sales for the year ending March 31 will be about NZD 6.5 million, up from NZD 3.1 million a year earlier. Costs related to the start-up of its new refinery for producing its second product stream, Omega 3 rich fish oils used in supplements, mean it will post an operating loss in the period, it said.

IN BRIEF - Agencies weighing next steps in gillnet-replacement fisheries

Thursday, March 26, 2015


COLUMBIA RIVER — Purse and beach seine gear could be a part of the regular Columbia River commercial salmon fishery on 2015, drawing from the same pool as the rest of the fleet — even when it comes to the number of fish they can keep or handle before everyone has to stop fishing.


Whether or not the new seine fishery will exists has come down to a question of numbers. Specifically, which numbers.

After testing seine gear on the river following a mandate from Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber’s mandate to phase out the use of commercial gillnets on the mainstem of the Columbia, Washington and Oregon’s advisory group, the U.S. v. Oregon Technical Advisory Committee, initially said release morality numbers from the replacement gear (purse and beach seines) were much too high. The group said that while only 8.3 percent of wild steelhead died after being caught in beach seines and released, 34.3 percent of Chinook salmon and 38.4 percent of coho caught in the same nets died.
