IN BRIEF - Master and vessel owner ordered to pay GBP 22,459 for fisheries offences

Friday, August 10, 2018

The court heard that in February 2017 information was received by MMOofficers that led them to investigate the landing and subsequent sale of fish that had been declared by the fishing vessel Charisma (NN111).

Through analysis of CCTV footage from Sutton Harbour in Plymouth, officers identified that the vessel had not been out to sea. The vessel owner, Graham Searle was also master of the Emma Louise (PH5557), which had been fishing at the relevant time. It became clear that the incorrect vessel had been declared as having made the landing in order for the Emma Louise to land excess Pollock over her quota limit.

Mr Searle pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing on 9 July 2018, which was adjourned for sentencing until 31 July 2018. He was ordered to pay a fine of GBP 13,295, costs of GBP 8,994.30 and a GBP 170 victim surcharge.

IN BRIEF - Start-Up to Begin Algae Cultivation at Hellisheiði Power Plant

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

The international start-up ON Power will soon be starting an algae cultivation facility at Hellisheiði Power Plant just outside of the Reykjavík capital area, RÚV reports. The company’s owners believe that it won’t be long before algae will be a viable source of protein and nutrients which can be added to a variety of food products.

On Power signed a 15-year contract with fellow start-up company Algaennovation concerning the sale of resources and property near the Hellisheiði power plant to begin their algae cultivation operation.

Microalgae are an important source of nutrients for animals in the wild and an equally viable as a source of vitamins for human beings. In the beginning, says Berglind Rán Ólafsdóttir, ON Power’s corporate market director, the company intends to cultivate microalgae as a food source for bait fish and then incrementally expand into using it in aquaculture, i.e. as food for farmed fish intended for both animal and human consumption.

IN BRIEF - Like a fish out of water: Barrels of bait spill on highway

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

NEWCASTLE, Maine - There are plenty of fish in the sea — and almost as many on a Maine highway.

The Portland Press Herald reports a truck carrying 35 barrels of bait fish tipped over Thursday in Newcastle, spilling the pungent fish all over the road and backing up traffic.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office said the 41-year-old truck driver told police he went into the breakdown lane to avoid hitting a vehicle stopped in traffic and lost control of the truck.

IN BRIEF - Sustainable aquafeed: Marine microalga co-product holds potential

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Dartmouth scientists claim to have created a more sustainable feed for aquaculture by using a marine microalga co-product as a feed ingredient. The study is the first of its kind to evaluate replacing fishmeal with a co-product in feed designed specifically for Nile tilapia. The results are published in the open access journal, PLOS ONE.

Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food sector, surpassing the global capture fisheries production in 2014. It provides more than 50 percent of the food supply to humans; however, it poses several environmental concerns. Aquaculture feed (aquafeeds) draws on 70 percent of the world’s fishmeal and fish oil, which is obtained from small, ocean-caught fish such as anchovies, sardines, herring, menhaden, and mackerel, that are essential to the lower end of the marine food chain.

IN BRIEF - Research reveals how eating more fish can improve fertility and boost sex drive

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Improving one’s sex life is considered as an important step towards ensuring overall well being. While several medical options as well as practices to apply in a relationship are recommended, simple dietary modifications can also work wonders.

Research has revealed that while a number of foods can boost libido, increasing intake of sea food can improve sex drive as well as fertility. The findings suggested that apart from having sex more frequently, couples who had more than two servings of fish a week were more likely to have a child.

Although sea food is known to be an aphrodisiac, it helps with fertility by improving semen quality, ovulation and embryo quality. Hence incorporating more fish in diet is advisable for both partners if they are hoping for a pregnancy.

IN BRIEF - US-China trade war escalates, with more taxes on seafood

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

The trade war between the U.S. and China is amping up for Alaska’s commercial fishermen.

In June, China announced its intentions to levy a 25 percent tariff to imported American seafood including Pacific salmon, cod, Alaska Pollock, flatfish, crab, shellfish and other common commonly exported products. The announcement came in response to a U.S. tariff hike targeted at imported Chinese products earlier in 2018.

The Chinese tariffs went into effect July 6, impacting imported seafood destined for consumption in China itself. Seafood shipped to China that is intended for re-export after processing, either to the U.S. or elsewhere in the world, is exempt from the increased tariff.
