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.

I regret that we were not able to reach agreements on the management and allocation of Norwegian spring spawning herring and Blue whiting with the other coastal states, says Minister of Fisheries Elisabeth Aspaker. The negotiations between Norway, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and the EU, and also Russia when it comes to herring, has been conducted this week in London.
Norway was prepared to make agreements for 2015 similar to the same agreements as for 2014, but it was not possible to achieve agreement by all other Parties on this. I regret this strongly, as it was my impression that the other Parties also wanted to have agreements in place by the end of this year, Minister Aspaker says.
Biodiversity describes the existence of species in the natural environment and the preservation of which is regarded as a major goal for environmental and economic policy. Leading companies like Sanford are looking at the environment in which they operate and the resources they exploit by assessing the breadth of the supply chain to identify natural opportunities that add value.
Pure Advantage commends Sanford for looking more closely at the relevance of biodiversity to business with a view to creating a step change in business investment in an area that is vital to New Zealand. In congratulating Sanford on their leadership, Pure Advantage Chair Rob Morrison, went on to say, " It is imperative New Zealand companies utilise the competitive advantages on offer in the natural environment and focus on extracting more value from what we currently produce rather than simplistically looking to produce more"
Herpes has devastated 26 percent of France's oyster production since the summer of 2008. Halfway around the world in Australia, the virus killed 10 million oysters in three days.
Researchers suspect climate change risks compounding the losses.
To learn more about how the virus and warmer ocean water affects Pacific oysters, researchers at CSIRO, Australia's national science agency, and the University of Tasmania are using dental gum to attach heart-rate monitors to a half-dozen of them. Another dozen Pacific oysters are wired up in an indoor lab, where light and temperature are modified to gauge changes in the oysters' physiological reactions.
