IN BRIEF - Verlasso Smoked Salmon by Blue Hill Bay at Fancy Food Show
Friday, January 18, 2013
MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Verlasso(r), the world's first provider of harmoniously raised fish, and Acme Smoked Fish Corporation, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based producer and distributor of smoked fish, will unveil Verlasso Smoked Salmon during the 2013 Fancy Food Show, Jan. 20-22, 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The new product will be available to retail and food industry seafood purveyors through Acme's premium, all-natural Blue Hill Bay(r) Smoked Seafood brand. Show attendees can sample and learn more about Verlasso Smoked Salmon at the Acme booth #883.
Verlasso's Harmoniously Raised difference creates a better environment for fish to grow into great-tasting salmon with a shimmery quality, full fins and bright eyes. A critical aspect of the Verlasso approach protects ocean biodiversity through an innovative solution to the depletion of our world's fisheries. Specifically, Verlasso lowers the "fish in, fish out" ratio of the salmon's diet - the pounds of wild caught feeder fish needed to produce one pound of salmon - from the industry standard of 4:1 for fish oil and fish meal to 1:1 without compromising healthy levels of Omega-3s in the salmon's diet.
Verlasso and Acme collaborated to create right-sized smoked salmon options for grocery stores, delis, gourmet and specialty stores, and select catalogue and online gourmet retailers
Local veterinary surgeon, Simon Doherty, is the first vet on the island of Ireland to be accredited as a Certified Aquaculture Veterinarian – CertAqV – by the World Aquaculture Veterinary Medical Association (WAVMA).
The need for an adequate and well-trained aquatic veterinary workforce that provides services to the aquaculture and seafood producing industries, aquatic animal owners, private industries, government agencies and others has become a global imperative – particularly in light of increasing concerns for combatting disease, seafood safety, public health and other issues.
Because of their training in multiple species of animals, veterinarians are uniquely qualified to deal with most of these issues. The WAVMA Aquatic Veterinarian Certification Programme seeks to identify the core competencies needed to practice aquatic veterinary medicine, and to recognize those veterinarians that have acquired the necessary knowledge, skills and experience through a variety of sources.
Fish quotas would deal a blow to Malta, and lead to the demise of the fishing craft, Animal Welfare Parliamentary Secretary Roderick Galdes warned on July 2016.
While we should adhere to EU regulations, Malta needed to discuss flexibility as a one size fits all policy was not appropriate for the island, he told an audience attending one in a series of the Gvern li Jisma meetings.
Mr Galdes was reacting to a question about Malta’s position on swordfish quotas. The government did not agree with quotas, he insisted, noting that the majority of the swordfish stock was netted by other countries, such as Italy.
Noting that over 90 per cent of the species in the Mediterranean was overfished, he said Malta was in talks with Environment Commissioner Karmenu Vella about the issue.
BETHEL – For the first time since 1960, for as long as the state has managed fisheries, a season's worth of salmon will travel up rivers in the Kuskokwim Delta this year with no opportunity for local residents to catch them commercially.
With no fish buyer signed up for the Kuskokwim region, the usual infusion of millions of dollars into this part of job-poor Southwestern Alaska isn't happening.
Nearly 450,000 salmon of various types have been caught on average commercially in recent years.
Not this year. The state says those unharvested fish could overload spawning grounds and hurt future runs.
The West Bengal government has proposed a new laboratory that will identify the causes of various diseases affecting the fish population.
With prawn cultivation in South 24 Parganas nearly wiped out due to the white-spot disease that has been affecting the species since the late 1980s with no sign of control, the government realised the need for a laboratory to carry out research work with the “sole aim” to learning about the causes of the disease.
Government officials said that ever since the late 1980s, when the white-spot disease wiped out the entire scope for prawn cultivation in the South 24 Parganas.
HÀ N?I — The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) will propose a new project to Prime Minister Nguy?n Xuân Phúc in connection with the recent fish deaths in four central provinces.
Under the project, vocational training and jobs will be provided to hundreds of thousands of labourers affected directly and indirectly by the mass fish deaths.
MoLISA Minister Ðào Ng?c Dung made the statement yesterday while working with local authorities in central Qu?ng Tr? Province, one of the four provinces suffering huge losses following the fish deaths in April. The other provinces that are affected are Hà Tinh, Qu?ng Bình and Th?a Thiên-Hu?.
TAIPEI - Industrial giant Formosa Plastics Group (FPG, ????) may face a fine of USD 500 million from the Vietnamese government, after investigations revealed toxic wastewater discharged from its steel complex was to blame for mysterious mass fish deaths in early April 2016.
According to local media, government office chief Mai Tien Dung told a press conference Thursday evening that Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Corp., an offshoot of FPG, was responsible for killing an estimated 70 tons of fish that began washing ashore on the beaches of four central provinces.
The company admitted fault, said the official.
According to the Chinese-language United Daily News, Taiwanese businessmen in Vietnam told reporters that the firm had been pressured into admitting to polluting the waters, in a bid to speed up the official commencement of operations.
TAIPEI - Taiwan and Japan are scheduled to hold their first dialogue on maritime cooperation in Taipei in late July 2016 to discuss issues such as fisheries cooperation and response to maritime emergencies, a foreign affairs official said Thursday.
Both sides have decided upon the date for the first meeting under a newly established Taiwan-Japan dialogue on maritime cooperation, said Tsai Ming-yaw, secretary-general of the Association of East Asian Relations, which is in charge of ties with Japan in the absence of formal diplomatic relations, at a regular news briefing.
However, he declined to reveal the precise date, saying that it, along with the venue, will be announced once the details are finalized.
If your shrimp trawl has been sitting in the shed collecting dust, you might want to pull it out this weekend before it's too late. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced Thursday the inshore shrimp season will close across most of the coast at 6 p.m. Sunday (July 3 2016).
The closure is necessitated by a marked increase in juvenile white shrimp throughout the region.
"The decision to close these waters was made to protect these developing shrimp and provide opportunity for growth to larger and more marketable sizes," the department stated in a news release.
Most of the shrimp caught during the spring shrimp season, which opens annually in May, are brown shrimp.
FOWLER, Ind. - When RDM Aquaculture in Fowler started in 2010, it was only the second shrimp farm in the state. Nearly six years later, owner Karlanea Brown said that number is rising fast.
“There are actually 11 shrimp farms in the state of Indiana right now,” Brown said. “We have the most of any other state.”
Shrimp farming is not an easy business to get into.
“They always say you’re never a true aquaculturist until you lose a million. We lost a million shrimp our first year trying to get this up and going,” Brown said. “But my husband and I are both very competitive people. We were not going to let this beat us.”
HALIFAX – A federal panel decision that recommends scrapping a northern shrimp policy that protects the pioneers of the multi-million dollar industry is dividing fisheries ministers in two Atlantic provinces.
Under the current Last-In, First-Out policy, the last entrants to a fishery off Newfoundland and Labrador are the first to leave when a quota is cut.
But the report released this week from an independent panel reviewing the policy said it does not allow the industry to adjust to changes in shrimp stocks, which have been in decline.
The report recommends replacing the policy with an allocation regime that would include proportional shares in fishing areas.
Brexit victory causes bitter-sweet reactions United Kingdom
The result of the referendum vote for the UK to leave the EU has been received with mixed feelings of 'uncertainty' for some representatives of the fishing sector and 'excitement' for Brexiting fishermen.
Northern shrimp policy could be replaced by new regime Canada
A federal advisory panel that had undertaken a review on the controversial LIFiO northern shrimp policy off Newfoundland and Labrador has recommended abolishing it and replacing it with a new way of allocating quotas.
