MALAYSIA
Friday, July 19, 2019

GEORGE TOWN - The Penang Fishermen’s Association is not seeking compensation but wants the Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project to be cancelled, said its chairman, Nazri Ahmad.

He expressed disappointment with the state government for having given the impression that they (fishermen) would not oppose the project if fairly compensated.

“In the long-term, the compensation will not make up for our loss, ” he told a media conference here today.

He said the project would destroy their source of income, hence their livelihood.

IN BRIEF - LegaSea laments 'madness' of trying to manage NZ fisheries with property rights

NEW ZEALAND
Friday, July 19, 2019

The Quota Management System has short-changed fish, mana whenua and the public since it was established in 1986.

The system was set up with the quota owners having to pay resource rentals. This only lasted a few years. For the past 30 years the commercial fishing industry has not paid for the use of these publicly-owned resources.

"Incredibly, we gave away most of our fisheries at no charge," said LegaSea spokesman Scott Macindoe.

IN BRIEF - Spinney Creek Shellfish files new aquaculture application

UNITED STATES
Friday, July 19, 2019

ELIOT, Maine - After dropping its bid for an aquaculture expansion on the Kittery side of Spinney Creek, Spinney Creek Shellfish has filed a new application for the Eliot side, now seeking a smaller, standard lease of 2.75 acres.

The oyster company has submitted a draft application to the state Department of Marine Resources (DMR), stating it would relinquish its 12 existing limited purpose aquaculture licenses if its new request is granted. Per the application, the lease would allow for a maximum of 600 suspended cages to grow oysters and quahogs in a subtidal zone of Spinney Creek.

A scoping session was held Wednesday in Eliot, where members of the public could comment before Spinney Creek Shellfish officially submits its application, for which a hearing will likely be scheduled for late fall or winter.

IN BRIEF - Fish farm on Cape Breton reserve pairs up with Cooke Aquaculture

CANADA
Friday, July 19, 2019

The We'koqma'q First Nation in Cape Breton is partnering with fish farming giant Cooke Aquaculture to help with the sales and marketing of the reserve's Bras d'Or Lakes steelhead trout.

Since 2011, a trout farm has been in operation at the reserve. Chief Rod Googoo said it has grown to have more than 50 people work at the fish farm, hatchery and processing plant. The operation has about 60 cages in the Bras d'Or Lakes.

"We started off small and we gradually built up steam and we got bigger and we got better at what we do, and we did it over a short period of time," said Googoo, who estimates they will harvest between CAD 10-12 million of fish in 2019.

IN BRIEF - Canada Has a New Fisheries Act. How Does It Stack Up?

CANADA
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Canada has the longest coastline in the world, yet it has long been a lax outlier in fisheries management. But with an overhaul of the federal Fisheries Act now complete, the sense among advocates and fisheries experts is that the tide is about to turn.

The passage of Bill C-68 on June 21 means that for the first time since the Fisheries Act was enacted in 1868, Fisheries and Oceans Canada is required to manage fish stocks sustainably and put rebuilding plans in place for those that are depleted.

Josh Laughren, executive director of the non-profit advocacy organization Oceana Canada, says that in 20 years we may look back and see the new criteria around sustainable management and rebuilding stocks as a transformational change.

IN BRIEF - Sharing data key in fight against illegal fishing

WORLDWIDE
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Sharing data may be a vital element in ending illegal fishing—a crime currently robbing nations of approximately USD 23 billion annually while also undermining legal fisheries management and industry practices. A perpetrator of human trafficking, smuggling, human rights violations and environmental degradation, illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing poses a serious threat to the economies, environment and security of nations. A new paper examines how data sharing between countries committed to Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14), which entails ending IUU fishing by 2020, can be successfully implemented globally.

"The paper is really about creating a pathway to better implement the UN Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA) globally. This work is all about making fisheries more sustainable, marine ecosystems more resilient, and coastal nation economies healthier," said Annie Brett, André Hoffman Fellow at the Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions and World Economic Forum Center for the 4th Industrial Revolution.

IN BRIEF - Fish Sanctuary Reaping Success

JAMAICA
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

The Alligator Head Foundation, that has successfully established a fish sanctuary in east Portland, is reaping huge success in its quest to restore marine life.

Founded six years ago by Franscesca Thyssen-Bornemisza, the foundation has been integrally involved in communities across east Portland while creating job opportunities for some residents.

Speaking at the foundation’s open-day event last Friday, Thyssen-Bornemisza pointed out that it has been difficult to achieve success at the fish sanctuary as it is challenging for some fisherfolk to adapt to the necessary changes.
