IN BRIEF - Seafood innovators see the ‘glurry’ in fish guts

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, December 24, 2014

 

Alaska seafood innovators are getting serious about ‘head to tail/inside and out’ usages of fish parts, and they see gold in all that gurry that ends up on cutting line floors.

Fish oils, pet treats, animal feeds, gelatins, fish scales that put the shimmer in nail polish – “almost anything that can be made out of seafood byproducts has increased in value tremendously in the last few years,” said Peter Bechtel, a US Dept. of Agriculture researcher formerly at the University of Alaska.

CANADA

Live cold-water shrimp look bloody dropped from a net and piled together in a metal container on board the Cape Ashley.

 

It takes sweat and tears, in addition to these shellfish, to keep the boat in the water, steam it as much as 20 hours from Port aux Choix to the fishing grounds, set a trawl and pull the sloppy masses aboard, year after year.

IN BRIEF - Coveney Welcomes Ireland-Russia Bilateral on Agri-Food Issues Meeting in Moscow Discussed Meat, Diary and Seafood Sectors

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Wednesday, December 24, 2014

 

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney T.D., welcomed the outcome of December the 22nd of 2014 high-level bilateral meeting in Moscow between his Department and the Russian Authorities on agri-food issues. The meeting was held at the request of the Department and built on the recent meeting in Dublin between the Minister and the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Ireland.

Minister Coveney commented “Russia is an important market for Irish agri-food products but unfortunately this trade has been restricted by issues arising from the Russian ban on EU food and drink products as well as their audit of Ireland’s exporting plants earlier this year. Through the Irish Embassy in Moscow we have been actively pursuing a bilateral meeting for some time to complement the intense engagement which we have had with Russian counterparts over the last few months. I am pleased to hear that yesterday’s meeting continued the constructive dialogue between both sides and progressed a number of key issues”.

“We produce some of the most sought after seafood in the world so it makes sense if you live here to take full advantage of the high quality produce on offer.

IN BRIEF - Lower lobster catch means higher prices

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, December 24, 2014

 

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The 2014 lobster fishing season appears to have resulted in a lower total catch than the previous two years — meaning slightly higher prices for consumers — but it remained a productive year, lobstermen say.

 

Maine’s lobster fishery, the largest in the country, topped 125 million pounds in 2012 and 2013. The 2012 catch of more than 127.2 million pounds was the highest since record-keeping began in 1880.

Criticized for netting only the small fry in its struggle against illegal fishing, the Indonesian Military (TNI) has claimed that the vast maritime territory and lack of equipment are its biggest obstacles in catching larger boats.

 

“We are very serious in doing our job and never play games on this duty or pussyfoot [with the illegal fishermen],” TNI commander Gen. Moeldoko told reporters before attending an executive meeting at the military headquarters in Cilangkap, East Jakarta, on Monday 22nd of December 2014.
