IN BRIEF - Impact of East Coast fisheries still playing out

UNITED STATES
Saturday, November 24, 2012

BATON ROUGE - If you thought Louisiana's seafood industry might get a boost from the lull in commercial fishing activity where Hurricane Sandy made landfall late last month, you were wrong.

Some seafood processors in southeast Louisiana said just the opposite is happening, that sales to buyers on the East Coast are down slightly as portions of states like New York and New Jersey continue to recover.

IN BRIEF - Fish and chip 'Oscars' casts net to Liverpool

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, May 05, 2016

There are a lot of bad fish and chips around. Confidential's most recent was a happy experience at the Layla Brasserie in the Doubletree Hilton on Sir Thomas Street.

It was, as the saying goes, small but perfectly formed: gorgeous gleaming haddock and dry, light, crispy batter; lots of homemade, piquant tartare sauce, excellent mushy marrowfats and fat chips. That's it in the picture, above.

At around GBP 12, the puffy cheeked diner might have been expecting more. This was definitely a ladies portion. Nevertheless it enabled three of us to sail through a long, long evening of cocktails and dancing with it neither getting in the way or leading to anything, er, unladylike. 8/10 if you are in the market.

Now Liverpool's fish and chip businesses, including hotels, are on the radar of an industry "Oscars" to find the best friers in the land.

The 2017 National Fish & Chip Awards launches today and says it is hoping to "hook" some from these waters.

It's not just dedicated chippies either. Anywhere that knows its way around a decent bit of batter - and that mint has no place in mushy peas - is invited to chuck their hat into the competitive ring, and that includes pubs, hotels and restaurants with proper plates and that.

IN BRIEF - Sizzling temperatures may hit seafood exports

INDIA
Thursday, May 05, 2016

With mercury levels reaching an unprecedented 45 degrees in April, the seafood industry is facing the heatdue to rising instances of premature mortality of shrimpsin the ponds. The death figures are also likely to put a dampener on exports in 2016-17.

“Due to the sizzling temperature, farmers are not opting for stocking of seeds in ponds as there are rising instances of premature mortality, especially in West Bengal, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. We are pinning hopes on the rain god. This year’s temperature is unprecedented and all states in the country are affected by the rise in mercury,” said Ajay Dash, Odisha region president for Seafood Exporters Association of India (SEAI).

Due to the heat, apart from the shrimp culture crop, sea catch is also likely to plunge, he warned.

In Odisha, shrimp mortality along the coastal Balasore district is around 50% while in Dhamra and Jagatsingpur it is around 30% and 25-30%, respectively. The exporters body said things may improve if it rains properly and the second crop may be bumper but maintained that the present scenario is gloomy.

IN BRIEF - State seeks dismissal of lawsuit over governor's admin order

UNITED STATES
Thursday, May 05, 2016

JUNEAU - A seine fisherman from Southeast Alaska and a commercial fishing trade organization have sued Gov. Bill Walker over an administrative order they say made substantial legal changes to the agency regulating entry into the state’s commercial fisheries.

Department of Law attorneys, in a court filing, responded this week asking that the case against Walker and the state be dismissed. They say only the Legislature could have legal standing to sue as it is the only entity that could argue that it had been harmed by the governor’s order.

The legal challenge came after Walker issued an administrative order in February folding functions of the Commercial Fisheries Limited Entry Commission — the agency responsible for regulating permits and entry in the state’s commercial fisheries — into the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

Walker’s administration said moving administrative and research functions, like licensing and permitting, to Fish and Game could save the state more than USD 1.3 million a year.

Fusion Marine has secured a new contract worth GBP 900,000 to supply salmon pens to Scottish Sea Farms (SSF) new site in Orkney.

Fusion Marine director, Iain Forbes, said: “We always strive to work closely with salmon producers in developing fish containment systems that meet their requirements, and Triton is a great example of such co-operation.

“We also take great pride in our after-sales support where we continually liaise with customers to ensure the most efficient operation of their equipment.

“This latest order from Scottish Sea Farms helps ensure job security at our manufacturing base and underlines the importance of fish farming in supporting our rural economy.”

IN BRIEF - It’s Fish Versus Herpes In Australian Invasive Species Showdown

AUSTRALIA
Tuesday, May 03, 2016

The great circle of life pits Earth’s creatures against each other in a constant battle of indomitable will and instinct. A lion brings down a swift-footed gazelle on an African plain. A tenacious mongoose and writhing cobra face off in a fight to the death. And now, courtesy of the Australian government, we can finally see the epic battle of natural forces we’ve all been waiting for: herpes versus carp. 

On May the 2nd of 2016, the Guardian reported that Australia’s new federal budget includes AUD 15 million (USD 11.4 million) for a national carp control plan that will unleash a version of the herpes virus on the unsuspecting fish population. Those behind the plan hope to curb the feral carp, which scientists say are heavily degrading the country’s fresh waterways, crowding out other wildlife, and disrupting carefully balanced ecosystems.

According to Mashable, the proposal caused a massive spike in interest for the oily ichthys on Monday 2nd with, #carp trending heavily on Australian Twitter, and users turning out in droves to crack wise on the subject.

IN BRIEF - Indonesia to export more fish to control price

INDONESIA
Tuesday, May 03, 2016

JAKARTA - The Indonesian government will ship more fish overseas to rise price at domestic market as output increases significantly due to decline of illegal fishing.

Indonesian Coordinator Minister for Maritime Rizal Ramli said on Tuesday evening that the government plans to add the number of sea port facilitating fish export across the country, which is expected to make the export become more effective and efficient.

"We decided to open new sea ports (for fish export) so that fish export will rise," Ramli said.

Indonesia has a large territory, but only three sea ports facilitating fish exports so that the cost of transport to the export gates is high and the period of shipment is also long, according to him.
