Concerned over depleting fish wealth, the district administration has decided to initiate strict action against illegal fishing practices.
District Collector N. Padmakumar has directed the Fisheries Department to launch inspections across the district to prevent the use of unauthorised fishing nets. Stringent penalties, including fine of INR 10,000 and imprisonment up to 3 months, will be adopted against those found to be using ‘adakkamkolli’ (roughly translated as kill-all) nets.
The use of such purse seine nets are known to create widespread destruction of fish resources as its small mesh size results in numerous fish juveniles getting trapped.
The Philippines called on its Southeast Asian neighbours to unite in urging China to halt reclamation of land in the South China Sea, but the call failed to raise widespread support ahead of a regional summit.
China claims 90 percent of the South China Sea, which is believed to be rich in oil and gas. Its claims overlap with those of Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan.
Recent satellite images suggest China has made rapid progress in filling in land in contested territory in the Spratly islands and in building an airstrip suitable for military use and that it may be planning another.
FRANKLIN — Ed Robinson looks down at an empty 360,000-gallon steel and concrete tank and imagines it filled with water and teeming with California yellowtail, a subtropical fish prized in sushi bars for its smooth, buttery texture and mild flavor.
“Imagine 30,000 to 40,000 yellowtail in here. Wow!” said Robinson, CEO and chairman of Acadia Harvest, a startup company that is developing a land-based, indoor fish farm to raise black sea bass and California yellowtail.
If successful, the company will have the only commercial yellowtail fish farm in the United States. This month it made big strides toward that goal by winning two grants – USD 657,000 from the National Science Foundation to develop alternative technology to help the company build a commercial-scale operation with zero fish waste, and USD 367,500 from the Maine Technology Institute to complete work on that big tank.
The VASEP requirement came after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refused to grant the import licenses for 140 shipments of frozen shrimp found with high rates of antibiotic residues from India, Malaysia, China, and Vietnam in the first three months of 2015.
Of these, 96 shipments were imported from Malaysia, 25 from Vietnam, 13 from India, five from China, and one from Indonesia.
