IN BRIEF - Norwegian Company Casts Bid for Fish Farm; Questions raised about timing and lack of public input

NORWAY
Tuesday, June 11, 2019

If everything goes as planned, fresh fish raised in tanks on the now blighted former pulp mill site will be making its way across the West Coast in four years, opening up new avenues for economic development in a region still reeling from downturns in the once mainstay lumber and fishing industries.

At least that is the realistic best hope of officials with Nordic Aquafarms, the Norwegian company behind the proposed land-based facility that looks to ultimately produce some 25,000 tons of farmed fish a year here on the North Coast.

The clock was set in motion Feb. 11 with the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District's decision to sign a 30-year lease with Nordic amid concerns that the deal was ushered through without public input.

Last week, this newspaper reported about two studies that have warned that fish populations along Maharashtra’s coast could collapse because of overfishing and killing of juvenile fish.

Many of these species are listed as threatened in the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s list.

The Board of Directors of Mowi awarded 1.175 million options under its senior executive share option scheme with effect from 2015 to the current participants in the option scheme. The option scheme forms an important part of Mowi's long-term remuneration policy for such senior executives.

Accordingly, the number of options has been reduced to 485,743 options to comply with this provision.

On 17 June 2019, participants in Mowi's senior executive share option scheme exercised 485,743 options in Mowi, corresponding to 485,743 shares at a strike price of NOK 77.52 per share.

IN BRIEF - Response to Hector's and Maui Threat Management proposals - Seafood NZ

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, June 17, 2019

This is a complex document and we need time to consider its implications.

The industry is concerned about dolphin protection and has worked hard to minimise risk, with demonstrable success.

We are also concerned about the wellbeing of our members. Hundreds of families could be affected by these proposals. There are also implications for those who value continued supplies of fresh seafood.

We hope there is proper consultation and this is not just a whitewash.

There has been close engagement to date and the industry will continue to work constructively.

The Government also needs to be mindful of its obligations under the Deed of Settlement, which recognised the fishing rights embodied in the Treaty of Waitangi.
