IN BRIEF - Views sought on strengthening iwi aquaculture claims processes

Monday, December 02, 2019

Fisheries Minister Stuart Nash announced today a public consultation on proposed changes to strengthen the allocation and transfer process in the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004.

"Some of the current requirements are preventing several iwi from accessing and developing their aquaculture settlement assets and the proposal outlines options to strengthen processes," says Stuart Nash.

"Tangata whenua have expressed that they would like to see better access for iwi to develop their aquaculture settlement assets.

"Iwi have an important role in New Zealand's sustainable and innovative aquaculture sector as they continue to acquire and develop their interests in the industry, and improvements need to be made to support this development."

Other Media | Packaging News: Cepac registers fish and shellfish pack with the IPO

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Cepac’s corrugated cardboard composition pack for fish and shellfish has been formally registered with the Intellectual Property Office.

The Chiller Pack was developed for Scottish Shellfish by the transit packaging team at Cepac’s Rawcliffe site. The design is said to allow for dry transportation of fish and shellfish, to avoid the fresh produce sitting in water, which can compromise freshness. Traditionally, fresh seafood is transported in expanded polystyrene (EPS) boxes.

Scottish Shellfish supplies mussels and oysters to restaurants, retailers and wholesalers across the UK

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Es una victoria para Sea Shepherd. Esta ONG, especializada en la preservación de los océanos, ha conseguido que el Gobierno francés sea condenado por su falta de protección de los delfines frente a las actividades pesqueras en el Atlántico, consideradas responsables de la muerte de cientos de estos mamíferos marinos protegidos, atrapados cada año accidentalmente en las redes.

Así pues, en una sentencia de 2 de julio, el Tribunal Administrativo de París consideró que el Estado había «retrasado la aplicación de medidas concretas en vista de los episodios recurrentes, desde el decenio de 1990, acentuados desde 2016, de exceso de mortalidad de cetáceos en la costa atlántica, en particular en el Golfo de Vizcaya», incumpliendo así las obligaciones que le incumben en virtud de la legislación europea.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Supporting sustainable seaweed farming for East Africa’s coastal communities

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Climate change and unsustainable practices are threatening seaweed farming in Tanzania, an industry that employs over 25,000 farmers, of whom around 80 percent are women. To help address these challenges, The Nature Conservancy is partnering with Cargill, local governments and researchers to empower communities through increased productivity, environmental training and mentorship.

Along the Tanzanian coastline, seaweed aquaculture is an important industry to coastal women and also serves as an alternative livelihood to overharvested local fisheries. However, Tanzanian seaweed aquaculture has been stagnating recently, due to issues that include changing water-quality conditions and poor seedstock.
