More and more consumers in the city seem to want to avoid haggling over fish prices with fish vendors and instead are ordering seafood online. There are at least half a dozen Chennai-based websites where orders can either be placed a day before or on the same day.
“We door deliver cleaned fresh fish to houses that are within a five km radius of fish stalls in Teynampet, Nandanam, Anna Nagar, Santhome and Chitlapakkam.

Now, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences is trying to bridge that inherent contradiction in perch.
The school is continuing to refine methods of aquaculture, or fish farming, to make it profitable. Aquaculture is likely the best option for getting more perch on dinner plates.
Further, the Fund for Lake Michigan has awarded $100,000 to the UWM Great Lakes Genomics Center — part of the Freshwater Sciences School — to sequence the DNA of perch and two other species. The idea is to develop ways to improve their health.

New Bedford is the top-grossing fishing port in the United States and has been since 1999; an enviable record and a tribute to the vision and expertise of all those involved in sustaining an industry that is constantly evolving.

Seafood processor Blue Harvest Fisheries is a big presence on the waterfront today yet the company was unknown in the city until relatively recently.

The North-West Coast should not be used as a dumping ground for destructive seals relocated from fish farms, says Liberal MP Adam Brooks.
Renewing recent calls for salmon producer Tassal to end seal relocations, the Braddon MHA said the salmon industry’s problem with the marine mammals should not be inflicted on commercial and recreational fishers in the region.
He said he planned to raise the issue with Primary Industries Minister Jeremy Rockliff and Environment Minister Matthew Groom.

Fraser River salmon returns for 2017 have been very low.
The fish heading up-river to spawn are significantly below forecast levels, so that means limited fishing opportunities for everyone.
Following conservation in terms of DFO priorities is providing Indigenous communities with food, social and ceremonial (FSC) fishery openings, which have been few so far in 2017.
"It is challenging," acknowledged Jennifer Nener, DFO Pacific Region's director of salmon management, on a conference call to offer an in-season update on Fraser salmon with West Coast media on Friday.
Complaints about the lack of recreational openings for chinook salmon have been received by DFO in the wake of its cautious management adopted for conservation reasons.
Angola is due to start exporting canned fish to the European market following the inauguration on Friday in the municipality of Tômbwa, Namibe province, of two new units for canning, freezing and preserving fish, according to the Angolan press.
Pes-Sul, the unit for production of canned fish, has two processing lines and daily production of 125,000. Its owners are considering setting up a line to produce fish paste later this year.
The Minister of Fisheries, Vitória de Barros Neto, noted that the recovery of this unit allows Angola to have canned fish produced in the country again and in the medium term to start exporting to markets such as Europe, “where our canned fish previously had a presence.”

"The most important piece of clothing to pack is good, sturdy and warm boots. There is going to be snow and ice on the deck of the icebreaker," it read. "Quality boots are key."
The Associated Press was joining international researchers on a month-long, 10,000 kilometer (6,200-mile) journey to document the impact of climate change on the forbidding ice and frigid waters of the Far North. But once the ship entered the fabled Northwest Passage between the Atlantic and the Pacific, there would be nowhere to stop for supplies, no port to shelter in and no help for hundreds of miles if things went wrong. A change in the weather might cause the mercury to drop suddenly or push the polar pack into the Canadian Archipelago, creating a sea of rock-hard ice.
