OSLO - Norwegian cruise ship operator Hurtigruten has signed a 7.5-year deal to buy liquefied biogas (LBG) made from dead fish and other organic waste to help power its vessels, the firm said on Thursday 23.

The result is a synchronized comprehensive health standard consist of five aspects with 59 criteria. Some parts of the comprehensive standard (four aspects and 17 criteria) was then used as try-out to assess the health adequacy level of the Muara Angke fish market.

The results showed that on average the level of health adequacy reached only 39.7%. It means that Muara Angke fish market is an unhealthy fish market and needs a lot of improvement to become a healthy and hygiene fish market.

Traditional fishermen in the Danish village of Thorupstrand are pushing back against large-scale fishing operations that they say are threatening their livelihood and through that, their way of life.
Most Danish fishing villages abandoned their traditional trade after Denmark privatised fishing quotas, allowing big industrial companies to buy them out almost completely.
Thorupstrand survived as a fishing village by sharing individual fishing rights between all the fishermen there, in a jointly-managed local cooperative — an example that researchers say can be followed by small-scale fisheries in other regions of Europe too.
A new study finds that the low-cost, extreme draining of a reservoir in Oregon aided downstream migration of juvenile chinook salmon -- and led to the gradual disappearance of two species of predatory invasive fish in the artificial lake.
The study is published in the journal Ecohydrology.
The elimination of largemouth bass and crappie from Fall Creek Reservoir, about 30 miles southeast of Eugene in in the Willamette River basin, could have management implications for reservoirs that have been invaded by certain species of fish that eat other fish, according to Christina Murphy, a recent Oregon State University doctoral graduate and lead author on the study.
