IN BRIEF - Off the hook: California king salmon rebounds after drought

UNITED STATES
Friday, August 23, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — Trolling off the California coast, Sarah Bates leans over the side of her boat and pulls out a long, silvery fish prized by anglers and seafood lovers: wild king salmon.

Reeling in a fish "feels good every time," but this year has been surprisingly good, said Bates, a commercial troller based in San Francisco.

Bates and other California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in years, thanks to heavy rain and snow that ended the state's historic drought.

IN BRIEF - Climate change reduces fish species: No fish left in our seas

TURKEY
Thursday, September 12, 2019

The hunting ban started on 15 April 2019 and ended on 1 September. Fishermen said that this year's yield is less compared to 2018, said they could not find the hope.

Fishes decorating the stalls for about 15 days came to the citizens expensive, but argued that the prices of trades are not expensive. 200 years of fish stocks in 18 years, there was a reduction in the records of Istanbul University (IU) Faculty of Water Sciences Faculty Professor. Dr. Saadet Karakulak stated that anchovy and sardine will be abundant this year due to the deterioration in the ecosystem, but that large fish such as bluefish and acorn will be rare.

Professor Dr. Saadet Karakulak said that the most efficient and important sea in fishing is the Black Sea. Stating that 70 percent of hunting is in the Black Sea and there has been a serious decrease in fish stocks in recent years, Karakulak said, “There are many reasons for the decrease. One of them is over-hunting, illegal hunting and unregistered hunting. The impact of over-hunting and global warming is enormous. The increase in temperature leads to changes in the reproductive periods and migrations of fish along with the discharge systems. These have negative effects on fish. ”

IN BRIEF - Microplastics found in stomachs of mackerel caught by Thai fishermen a concern

THAILAND
Thursday, September 12, 2019

The severity of the problem of marine plastic pollution is being highlighted again as researchers have found plastics inside fish caught off the coast of Southern Thailand.

Researchers from the Marine National Park Operation Centre were originally conducting studies on marine pollution by collecting trash from the sea.

After realising that such trash might have adverse effect on the marine food chain, they decided to collect mackerel from local fishermen at the Hat Chao Mai National Park, Bangkok Post reported.

IN BRIEF - So long and thanks for the fish: EU trawlers set new course post-Brexit

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, September 12, 2019

The Beernaert family has been catching sole, turbot and monkfish in north-western Europe for at least three generations. But, because of Brexit, decades of seafaring could soon come to an abrupt end.

Benoit Beernaert, the owner of the Mare Nostrum trawler, makes half his annual catch in UK waters. And nobody knows whether his boat can continue to fish those seas after 31 October 2019.

“If I lose half my fishing ground why should I invest? It could be better to finish,” he said. Feelings don’t come into it: “I would finish, rather than go bankrupt. It’s a rational decision, it’s not an emotional decision.”

IN BRIEF - New England herring fishery restricted for several weeks

UNITED STATES
Thursday, September 12, 2019

Commercial fishing of an important species of bait fish is going to be shut down in one of its key areas in New England for about six weeks.

Interstate regulators say the Atlantic herring fishery in the inshore Gulf of Maine is nearing a quota limit and will be subject to restrictions from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31 2019. That means fishermen will not be allowed to bring the fish to land until that date.

The inshore Gulf of Maine's an area that touches coastal Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. Herring fishing's a major industry in New England, where the herring industry is centered. Fishermen sometimes catch more than 100 million pounds of the lobster bait fish in a year.

IN BRIEF - The Future Of Fish Feed Might Be Fish-Free

WORLDWIDE
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

If you’re trying to be a conscious omnivore, chances are you’re putting some serious thought into the sustainability of the animal proteins you’re eating: Were the animals humanely raised, on farms/ranches that don’t harm the environment? The next level is to think about whether the feed itself of what we eat is sustainable. But even people concerned with GMO soy used for cattle might not be thinking about what their farmed salmon are eating. 

F3 is a collaboration between nongovernmental organizations, scientists, and the private sector (backers include the University of Arizona, the New England Aquarium and the organizers of the X-Prize) to uncover new alternative feed ingredients for aquaculture that reduce or eliminate reliance on wild-caught fish. What’s wrong with fish eating fish? Well, in the case of farmed fish (hogs and poultry, too, but that’s another story), a large amount of feed for these animals relies on fishmeal and oils from small, wild-caught fish (aka “forage fish”) such as anchovies, sardines, and menhaden. And as aquaculture continues to boom — according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, aquaculture represented approximately 47% of global fish production in 2016 — the demand for fishmeal and fish oils to feed farmed fish is fast increasing.

IN BRIEF - Falmouth Selectmen OK Aquaculture Licenses For Nitrogen Remediation Program

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

The board of selectmen this week unanimously granted three aquaculture permits to Falmouth shellfishermen to grow oysters in Eel River near Washburn Island.

"We have been on a long journey to engage a public/private partnership to both promote nitrogen removal through aquaculture, and also achieve some other benefits for the community, including new commercial opportunities for local businesspersons and improving conditions for ongoing wild harvest shellfish," assistant town manager Peter Johnson-Staub said at the Monday, September 9, board of selectmen meeting.

The terms of the license agreement are different from a standard permit.

"We have some minimum standards for these farmers," Mr. Johnson-Staub said. "They have to put in enough shellfish and remove enough nitrogen so we know the town is getting as much nitrogen out of that site as we can reasonably expect."

IN BRIEF - Exploratory fishing vessel hopes to breathe new life into Nunatsiavut fisheries

CANADA
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

A new exploratory fishing vessel is looking to renew an old industry in Nain.

The Torngat I, which arrived in Nain just last week, is searching for scallop and whelk in northern waters this month.

"It's an idea to catch new species that haven't been caught in a while," said Bob Hardy, who is working as a fishing consultant for the Nunatsiavut government and Torngat Fishing Co-operative.

"It's an important project."

Hardy is working alongside some local fisherman to prove that there are viable fisheries outside of arctic char in North coast waters. This past week, they have been dropping buckets looking for whelk as well as dragging the sea floor looking for scallop, which was regularly fished for in the community until 2008 but was abandoned because of market conditions at the time.

IN BRIEF - Fukushima operator to be forced to dump radioactive waste into ocean - japanese minister

JAPAN
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

MOSCOW, Sept 10 -- The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, which in 2011 experienced the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, has no choice but to discharge a massive amount of radioactive waste into the sea since it currently has no technology for treating the contaminated water and no adequate space to store it any longer, Sputnik news agency quoted Japanese Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada as saying on Tuesday.

“We have no way but to release it (into the sea) and dilute it,” Harada said at a press briefing, as quoted by the Jiji Press.

More than a million tonnes of wastewater is currently stored in tanks at the Fukushima site, but the facility is reportedly running out of available space and expects to exhaust its capacity by summer 2022.
