IN BRIEF - 352 GenSan fishers remain missing after ‘Pablo’

PHILIPPINES
Saturday, January 19, 2013

DAVAO CITY—The overall commander of the search operations for people missing 44 days after Typhoon Pablo struck the eastern part of Mindanao has called off the search.

Lt. Gen. Jorge Segovia, commander of the Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) announced the decision in a statement on Wednesday but assured relatives of the missing that he has still placed on standby all the military assets used in combing the affected areas

For the meantime, he said, the personnel involved in the search would be shifted to the ongoing relief distribution for the affected villagers and the rehabilitation of the damaged rural areas and flattened towns.

Among the missing were 352 fishermen from General Santos City, who left days or weeks earlier before the typhoon struck on Dec. 4 last year. They were aboard 47 fishing vessels that also continued to be unaccounted for.

The last incident of a survivor rescued was on Jan. 12, he said, while the last retrieved body, all at sea, was on Jan. 10.

IN BRIEF - Toxic bacteria found in seafood samples

INDIA
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

The septic waste is returning to our food. The latest indicator is the presence of toxigenic E coliin seafood samples collected from retail markets, fish farms and landing centres in Ernakulam district and neighbouring areas. The presence of E coli signifies the faecal sewage contamination in food and water.

Over the past one year, around 123 samples of fish were taken and analyzed at the Central Institute of Fisheries Technology (CIFT), which is a nationally-accredited agency by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) for testing the quality of fish.

The study team, consisting of Dr K V Lalitha, V Murugadas and Toms C Joseph, screened the fish samples, including shellfish. Pathogenic E coli was found in 23.4% of the 123 seafood samples while other strains, especially enterotoxigenic E coli (ETEC), was seen in 18.6% of the specimens.

IN BRIEF - Chile's salmon output likely to fall sharply under new rules

CHILE
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

 

Chile's farmed salmon production could drop by almost 25 percent because of stricter regulations aimed at tackling environmental crises that have decimated fish populations in recent years, government and industry sources say.

Salmon farms in the nation's misty, cool south have been mired in a boom-and-bust cycle, with production climbing during good years and then falling due to the bacterial, viral and algal outbreaks that have become increasingly common.

A massive algal bloom killed up to 20 percent of Chilean salmon this year, costing millions of dollars and likely cutting annual production to around 650,000 tonnes, a level last seen in 2011, when the industry was recovering from an outbreak of infectious salmon anemia virus.

That represents the low end of what the government expects to be a new reduced permanent range for production resulting from incoming rules aimed at reducing fish densities in pens by 27 percent, Raul Sunico, the head of the Chilean government's Subpesca fishing and aquaculture body, told Reuters.

IN BRIEF - Salmon saved from drought in 2014 returning home

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

SAN FRANCISCO - You may have noticed a lot of fishing boats lately off the Golden Gate recently. That's because there's a bounty of salmon off the coast. And that did not happen by accident.

It's the modern version of a ritual that stretches back through millennia -- setting out to sea, hoping for favor from the fish gods. One particular group of sailors has been doing this every Wednesday for 30 years. "This is tranquility. As good as it gets," one of them told ABC7 News.

They fish on a boat known as the "Wacky Jacky," captained by the queen of Bay Area fishermen. If anyone knows where those fish might be, it's Jacqueline Douglas.

IN BRIEF - Placentia Bay aquaculture project a go with 'almost unanimous support': mayor

CANADA
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

 

The mayor of Marystown says his community is one step closer to rekindling its former fishing prosperity now that an aquaculture project in the town has gotten the go-ahead.

Sam Synard said Grieg NL Nurseries, the Norway-based company that's looking at farming salmon off the coast near the town, has gone through federal and provincial environmental assessment, giving the project the green light.

"The project is a go," Synard said on CBC Radio's St. John's Morning Show. 

"There are some other conditions that need to be met, but they're very basic conditions that are attached to a lot of economic development proposals."

IN BRIEF - Nigeria'll earn over N800bn from animal feed industry

NIGERIA
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Domestically, the ani­mal feed industry has been hampered by the lack of quality feed, poor government support for farmers and unavailability of young stock. Notwithstand­ing Nigeria is estimated to rake in over N800 billion from the sector as consumption is increasing daily.

At present, the total sup­ply of all the locally produced feedstock does not appear to be sufficient to meet demands, especially with respect to the animal protein supplements that are currently imported.

The global animal feed mar­ket can be segmented into five divisions based on livestock: poultry, swine, ruminant, aquaculture and others, and the cost of their feeding is on the high side especially the pet animals, which are also known as companion animals.

IN BRIEF - Southern bluefin tuna boom reaps reward for east coast fishermen

AUSTRALIA
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

 

Southern bluefin tuna fishermen along the east coast are making the most of a booming Japanese market.

Aquaculture quotas in South Australia are being leased to the east coast long-line fishery as it proves more efficient and profitable.

Australian Southern Bluefin Tuna Association chief executive Brian Jeffries said operators were cashing in on the rejuvenated fishery and South-East Asia demand.

"The catch on the east coast of southern bluefin has gone from 30 tonnes about three to four years ago to almost 600 tonnes this year," he said.

CANADA

IN BRIEF - EU wants reduction in trawler numbers

THAILAND
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Despite expressing satisfaction with new laws to tackle illegal fishing, the European Union (EU) believes there are too many Thai fishing vessels which will deplete fish stocks if left unchecked.

Following a recent EU inspection of Thai measures to tackle Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, the EU said it was satisfied with the 2016 Fisheries Decree which aims to ensure the sustainabledevelopment of the Thai fishing industry, Adisorn Promthep, director-general of the Department of Fisheries, said.

The EU wants to see all measures under the law successfully implemented, he said. served.

IN BRIEF - Legal Sea Foods faces criticism for ‘cold fish’ ad mocking Hillary Clinton

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 27, 2016

 

Legal Sea Foods is well-known in the Boston area for its provocative advertisements. But the company stepped over the line for some people in a full-page ad poking fun at Hillary Clinton that ran in Monday’s print edition of The Boston Globe.

“We have a term for cold fish,” reads the caption underneath a portrait of Clinton sporting a thin-lipped smile. “Sushi.” The bottom of the ad also features a photo of Legal Sea Foods CEO Roger Berkowitz alongside “Berkowitz for President,” part of the company’s “#feeltheberk” campaign.

“Our ads tend to be a little bit provocative to begin with,” Berkowitz told Boston.com Monday. “This one was kind of interesting, because the blowback  — in terms of people saying there was misogyny, there was racism, there was sexism — it was such a bizarre, knee-jerk reaction.”
