IN BRIEF - Commission set to consider Columbia salmon policy

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

OLYMPIA — The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider updating the state’s anti-gillnet policy on Columbia River salmon management during a meeting scheduled Jan. 13-14 at the Heathman Lodge, 7801 N.E. Greenwood Dr. in Vancouver. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. both days.

Commissioners are scheduled to consider updating the next phase of a policy adopted in 2013 to restructure salmon fisheries below Bonneville Dam. The public will be allowed to provide comment on the proposed updates during the meeting.

Developed with Oregon, the policy was designed to promote conservation of salmon and steelhead, prioritize recreational salmon fishing in the Lower Columbia River, and transition gillnet fisheries into off-channel areas by Dec. 31, 2016. The policy also calls for increasing hatchery releases in these areas, while expanding commercial fishing opportunities through the use of alternative fishing gear.

IN BRIEF - Huon Aquaculture ‘not surprised’ Tassal sided with State Government on Macquarie Harbour fish farm

Saturday, February 25, 2017

THE head of Huon Aquaculture says she is not surprised Tassal has sided with the State Government in a legal stoush over the future of fish farming in Macquarie Harbour.

Huon Aquaculture initiated proceedings against regulators and the state and federal governments earlier this month over what it said was a last resort to prevent more environmental damage to Macquarie Harbour.

In a statement to shareholders yesterday, Tassal said it would join the action to protect its interests “as an operator in Macquarie Harbour”.

Tassal will take the side of the State Government and industry regulators and oppose Huon Aquaculture.

IN BRIEF - Why does aquaculture matter in NSW?

Saturday, February 25, 2017

Aquaculture has been undertaken in a number of countries around the world and has grown rapidly worldwide in the last 50 years. FAO reports that world aquaculture production increased substantially since 1950 from one million tonnes production to 67 million tonnes in 2011-12. Projections by FAO estimate that in order to maintain the current level of per capita seafood consumption, worldwide aquaculture production will need to reach 82 million tonnes by 2050.

With such an important element of food security emerging for consumers and economic benefits for communities and individuals it is important to build a full picture of this industry and understand it’s future place within the economy.

Head researcher Kate Barclay from (UTS) was commissioned to undertake research to explore the social and economic contributions of aquaculture in NSW.

IN BRIEF - Is China’s Hands-Off Approach to Fisheries Producing More Fish?

Saturday, February 25, 2017

China, the world’s largest seafood producer, has a reputation for being a fish vacuum, its trawlers sucking up nearly 15 million tonnes of fish annually, many of which are illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fish caught off the West African coast and elsewhere. Yet for the past 20 years—despite minimal management and some of the most intensive industrial fishing in the world—China has purportedly maintained high catches of key species in its own backyard, the East China Sea.

The rosy reports documenting China’s unusually resilient fisheries have long been suspect. University of British Columbia fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly concluded in 2001 that Chinese reports of continuously high catches were basically bureaucratic lies. Others suggest that China inflates its landing numbers with IUU fish caught elsewhere.

Yet a new study from researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara’s Sustainable Fisheries Group has modeled another possible explanation for China’s impressive catch data: its indiscriminate approach to fishing takes species from throughout the food web, including predators.

IN BRIEF - Ottawa to invest in 'fisheries innovation' for Atlantic Canada following EU trade deal

Thursday, February 23, 2017

With Canada's trade deal with the European Union on track to come into force provisionally within weeks, the federal government is set to announce a new fisheries innovation fund.

But don't portray this new money as a way to compensate Atlantic Canada, Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc told CBC News last week.

"I didn't say compensation. That was your word," LeBlanc said after an announcement in Vancouver last week.

"What I said is that we're prepared to work with provinces to look for a way to make our fishing industry the most innovative, productive, sustainable and globally competitive that we can."
