IN BRIEF - Supreme Court says no to hearing UCIDA case

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, October 04, 2017

The lawsuit over whether the federal government or the state should manage Cook Inlet’s salmon fisheries won’t get its day in the U.S. Supreme Court after all.

Supreme Court justices on Monday denied the state of Alaska’s petition to hear a case in which the Kenai Peninsula-based fishing trade group the United Cook Inlet Drift Association challenged the North Pacific Fishery Management Council’s decision to confer management of the salmon fishery to the state.

Because most of the fishery takes place more than 3 miles from shore, it is within federal jurisdiction and is subject to management and oversight by a federal Fishery Management Plan. In 2012, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council passed an amendment removing fisheries in Cook Inlet, Prince William Sound and the Alaska Peninsula and placing them entirely under state management. UCIDA sued over the decision in 2013, saying the state’s management authority doesn’t comply with the Magnuson-Stevens Fisher Conservation and Management Act.

CANADA
Wednesday, October 04, 2017

MURRAY HARBOUR, P.E.I. -- Someone has stolen more than 100,000 of P.E.I.'s famous oysters.

IN BRIEF - World Bank approves USD 20 million for sustainable fisheries, marine conservation in Seychelles

SEYCHELLES
Wednesday, October 04, 2017

The conservation of Seychelles' marine resources and seafood value chains will benefit from a USD 20 million package approved by the World Bank.

The funding comes as part of the Third South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Governance and Shared Growth Project (SWIOFish3), aimed at improving the management of marine areas and fisheries in targeted zones of Seychelles, a 115 island archipelago in the western Indian Ocean.

Seychelles has already initiated a marine spatial planning exercise to expand protected areas and a fisheries management plan for the Mahe Plateau to progressively move from an open-access fishery to a more controlled fishery.

Seychelles' vice president said the World Bank package will help Seychelles achieve its fisheries management plan and its desire to capitalize on its natural resources.

IN BRIEF - India to outperform in shrimp exports in 2017: UN report

INDIA
Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Amid growing uncertainties in the seafood trade, exporters from India have now a reason to cheer as the country is expected to be the standout performer in 2017 along with Chile.
 
Indian exports is set to surge by 41 per cent more due to bumper harvesting of vannamei shrimp.

"Of the world's major seafood exporters, India and Chile are expected to be the standout performers in 2017. In India's case, bumper harvests of aquacultured vannamei shrimp is the main factor behind expectations of a INR 2.3 billion increase in Indianseafood exports in 2017," said a report by Globefish, which is a unit within the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations.

The report on seafood demand analysed the market situation until June 2017.

IN BRIEF - USD 48m fishing subsidies ‘causing more harm than good’

GHANA
Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Government subsidies in the fishing sector have been identified by fisheries stakeholders as one of the contributing factors to the overcapacity and over-exploitation of fisheries resources.

The premix fuel subsidy and tax waivers cost the Government of Ghana USD 44 million annually while outboard engine subsidy also cost the people of Ghana over USD 4.5 million a year.

The stakeholders believed that fishermen and other fisheries actors would be better off without the capacity enhancing subsidies, and that, funds used toward these programmes could be redirected to projects that promoted conservation, research, monitoring and enforcement of fisheries laws and regulations.

IN BRIEF - Atlantic Salmon Farm Was 'Due for Replacement' Before Collapse Released 160,000 Fish

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Six weeks ago a fish farm holding 305,000 Atlantic salmon — a farm the owners and state knew was aging and worn — collapsed in Deepwater Bay near Cypress Island, allowing thousands of the fish to swim into surrounding waters.

With about 160,000 of the fish leaving their nets, the incident is the second-largest release of Atlantic salmon in the state's history, this time from a site in Skagit County where the fish have been commercially raised for 40 years.

While state agencies continue to investigate the cause of the collapse and the release of those nonnative fish, the incident has raised concerns about threats to native Pacific salmon.

IN BRIEF - Net fishermen defy ban, fish in Hagåtña boat basin

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Two fishing boats full of atulai arrived on shore Monday afternoon to eager deck hands.

Thousands of silvery fish flipped and turned in the hulls, foaming up what little seawater held them. Two men held crates as another man dumped bucketfuls of fish. After a dunk and rinse in sea, the crates were lifted onto the dock and hauled off to meet giant coolers and bags and bags of ice.

Several hauls later, the boat seemed no less full of fish.

The fishermen defied a Port Authority of Guam ban on net fishing in the boat basin — an issue that became contentious after dead fish washing ashore mid-August was blamed on nets left submerged for long periods.

Atlantic salmon are native to the Atlantic Ocean and extinct in the U.S. except in the Gulf of Maine, where it is a federally protected endangered species. In Washington, Cooke Aquaculture is the only company that raises Atlantic salmon in fish farms, or net pens.
