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 - Work begins to develop open-ocean marine farms

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, January 23, 2017

A site off the shore of Opotiki in Bay of Plenty and another site in Pegasus Bay in Canterbury are the areas where prototype technology will be trialled.

A group of international and New Zealand scientists met with academics and members of the aquaculture industry in Nelson last week.

Kevin Heasman of the Cawthron Institute, who is leading the project team, said it was a significant stage in helping to make a planned offshore industry viable.

More than 10,000 hectares of ocean in New Zealand is already consented for marine farming, but the technology has not yet been developed to cope with such a demanding environment.

IN BRIEF - Feds declare salmon disaster for Gulf of Alaska fisheries

UNITED STATES
Monday, January 23, 2017

ANCHORAGE — The federal government has issued a disaster declaration for Alaska’s pink salmon fishery and several other salmon and crab fisheries along the West Coast.

Gov. Bill Walker requested the declaration after last year’s pink salmon harvests in Kodiak, Prince William Sound, Chignik and lower Cook Inlet came in far below forecast, the Alaska Journal of Commerce reported.

The estimated value of Kodiak’s catch in 2016 was about $2 million, compared to a five-year average of $14.6 million.

The disaster declaration granted by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on Wednesday gives Kodiak and the other Alaska fisheries the ability to seek disaster relief assistance from Congress because of the unexpected large decreases in salmon returns.

Pritzer’s declaration also covers eight salmon and crab fisheries in California and Washington state.

In 2012, Alaska received nearly $21 million in federal funds for fishery failures on the Yukon and Kuskokwim Rivers and in the Cook Inlet region.

IN BRIEF - Public views sought on proposed extension of Kaikōura coast shellfish and seaweed ban

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, January 23, 2017

The public is being asked for its views on a proposed extension to the current ban on collecting shellfish and seaweed along the Kaikoura and Cape Campbell coastlines.

A temporary emergency ban on the harvesting of shellfish – excluding rock lobster and scampi – and seaweed along the earthquake-affected east coast of the South Island, was announced by Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy, last November.

The Government also announced a $2 million package to investigate the impact of the earthquake on these fisheries.

Ministry for Primary Industries Director of Fisheries Management, Dave Turner, says scientific research on the Kaikoura coast reveals the rock lobster fishery is faring well, however, there are worrying signs for other shellfish, including kina, and seaweed species.

IN BRIEF - Crawling in crustaceans: Scientists study link between warmer ocean, booming lobster population

CANADA
Friday, January 20, 2017

Federal scientists are exploring connections between a warming Atlantic ocean and record lobster landings off southwestern Nova Scotia and in the Bay of Fundy.

Adam Cook, lead lobster research scientist for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, said those locations have seen the greatest temperature increases too.

He said there's clearly a relationship between temperatures and population but other factors are also involved in the remarkable rise in lobster landings, including a decrease in ground fish predators over the same period.

With a decade-long rise in temperatures, including record highs in 2012 and 2016, researchers at DFO laboratories in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are now studying the impact of warmer temperatures on egg production, egg quality and moult timing.
