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 - NZ Navy and Fisheries sting finds large proportion of tuna boats breaching the rules

NEW ZEALAND
Saturday, August 27, 2016

"There was a lot of out-of-area fishing, undeclared shark catch and also unmarked floats and equipment," said Lieutenant Commander Matt Kaio of HMNZS Wellington, which returned from its mission on August 26th 2016.

As well as providing enforcement, the ship has been a valuable resource for Pacific nations that can't afford to cover such a vast area. 

"We are all about providing a sustainable fishery in the south west Pacific. And it's our responsibility as a major Pacific player to do this sort of thing," Lieutenant Commander Kaio told ONE News.

In the three-month operation the navy boarded over 100 fishing boats. Any irregularities found were passed on to the host Pacific nation and it will be up to that country to decide whether to prosecute or not.

IN BRIEF - Minneapolis sees rise in foodborne illness from norovirus, Vibrio bacteria found in oysters

UNITED KINGDOM
Saturday, August 27, 2016

City health inspectors in Minneapolis are investigating a summer increase in foodborne illnesses related to norovirus and Vibrio, a bacteria found in raw oysters.

The increases were highlighted in the city’s “food establishment” newsletter, released Thursday 25th of August 2016.

“The reason for the spike in norovirus outbreaks is not known,” the advisory stated. “The Vibrio outbreaks are due to higher concentrations of bacteria in some oyster beds during the summer.”

Cases of norovirus, a highly contagious bug that causes severe vomiting and diarrhea, are not required to be reported to the Minnesota Department of Health, but the state agency has received reports of a slight uptick that is unusual for this time of year. However, the number of cases appears nowhere near the numbers seen in peak norovirus season in the winter months, said department spokesman Doug Schultz.

IN BRIEF - Gov. puts pause on shaking up commercial fisheries commission

UNITED STATES
Saturday, August 27, 2016

Gov. Bill Walker has put a pause on an administrative order that was recently the center of a lawsuit between the state and a commercial fishing trade association.

“Rather than implementing Administrative Order 279, Governor Walker said today he would place a moratorium on AO 279 to allow for a more robust stakeholder engagement process,” a Thursday press release from the governor’s office said.

Administrative Order 279, issued in February 2016, was supposed to transfer certain administrative functions of the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. CFEC was established in 1973 by the Alaska Legislature to limit how many people can participate in the state’s commercial fisheries.

IN BRIEF - Alaska's pink salmon record broken twice in 2-day span on Kenai River

UNITED STATES
Saturday, August 27, 2016

After 42 years, the Alaska state record for a sport-caught pink salmon was broken this week. Twice.

Thomas Salas hauled a monster pink salmon out of the Kenai River near Big Eddy in Soldotna on Monday night. The California resident, who said he visits the Kenai every other year or so, was originally going to throw it back when a friend told him to hang on to it.

"(He) said, 'You gotta keep it, that might be a record,' " Salas said.

Turns out the friend was right. When the anglers took the fish to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game office in Soldotna on Tuesday morning, the 28.5-inch long fish weighed 12 pounds, 13 ounces, claiming the state record from the previous 12-pound, 9-ounce fish caught on the Moose River in 1974.

H?I PHÒNG - The European – Vi?t Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) would promote the flow of high-quality investments from the EU into the country with commitments on goods and services market access, the opening of Government procurement, investment policies and policy transparency.

The event, jointly held by EuroCham, Vi?t Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s H?i Phòng branch, and Deep C Industrial Zone, attracted more than 80 representatives from companies in the city, Hà N?i and from EU countries’ embassies in Vi?t Nam. The seminar therefore gave audiences an insight into changes in trading regulations, market access, regional implications and expectations from the European business community in Vi?t Nam.
