IN BRIEF - How a small stretch of ocean stirred a conservation movement

Wednesday, December 04, 2019

SAVANNAH, Ga. — From the surface, these 22 square miles of water are unexceptional.

But dip beneath the surface — go down 60 or 70 feet — and you’ll find a spectacular seascape. Sponges, barnacles and tube worms cover rocky ledges on the ocean floor, forming a “live bottom.”

Gray’s Reef is little more than a drop in the ocean 19 miles off the Georgia coast, but don’t confuse size for significance. In one of his last official acts, President Jimmy Carter declared the reef a national marine sanctuary at the urging of conservationists who said its abundance of life was unique and worth saving for future generations.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Firda Seafood on the trout market: 'A perfect storm'

Thursday, August 06, 2020

Earlier this summer, Firda Seafood harvested its last salmon at its facilities in Gulen, Southern Norway. Now the owner Ola Braanaas is purely a trout farmer. It doesn’t seem to be a happy choice for him.

“In January, Russia, the main trout market, was closed. Not long after, the COVID-19 arrived, making the transport to the second-largest trout market, the United States, far more difficult. On top of this comes the reduction with the traffic light scheme,” Braanaas told Bergens Tidende.

Braanaas runs Firda Seafood, a family-owned, fully integrated salmon and trout farming company based on the west coast of Norway.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: The risks of re-floating sunken Blumar farm

Thursday, August 06, 2020

Plans to re-float a sunken salmon farm lying nearly 1,000 feet below the surface of the sea are being considered by Chilean authorities, which have warned of potential risks in such an operation.

Sixteen cages and 2,900 tonnes of dead salmon are lying on the seabed following the collapse of Blumar’s Caicura farm in heavy seas on June 27.

Alicia Gallardo, director of state aquaculture agency Sernapesca, said Blumar had sent it four proposals for the recovery of the sunken cages and the safe removal of the mass mortality, and that these were being risk assessed.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Deal or no deal?

Thursday, August 06, 2020

In a commentary on the current state of negotiations between the European Union and the UK, a spokesman for the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations, representing much of the English fishing industry, described the possibility of the UK and EU setting their own autonomous quotas for 2021 as a ‘departure that no sensible party wants.’

‘In view of these huge uncertainties, the UK is already making preparations for stand-alone arrangements for 2021 – in which access for EU fleets to fish in UK waters would be one element within an overall annual agreement. It is worth recalling that in the current EU/Norway annual agreements, without an annual fisheries agreement there is no access to fish in each other waters from 1st January.’

Other Media | iPac.Aquacultura: Lawsuits paralyze Trump's strategy to boost aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico

Thursday, August 06, 2020

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit yesterday declared federal Commerce Department regulations that would have allowed, for the first time, large-scale industrial offshore aquaculture operations in United States federal waters, to be illegal. The Court of Appeals upheld a 2018 Federal District Court decision that removes those regulations. The Trump Administration appealed the lower court decision and recently reiterated the Administration's commitment to develop commercial offshore aquaculture in federal waters. The 5th Circuit heard the case in January 2020.

The ‘Center for Food Safety’ filed the case in 2016 on behalf of a coalition of fishing and environmental organizations, shortly after the Department of Commerce issued regulations allowing industrial aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico, as the test region.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Japanese coho farmers target fresh to escape commodity prices

Thursday, August 06, 2020

Coho salmon farmers in Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture have a hard time making money when forced to go head-to-head with lower-priced imports from Chile.

To escape the price-taker role in a commodity market, a plan formulated by the Miyagi Fisheries Cooperative, the “Miyagi Prefecture coho salmon aquaculture reconstruction project,” promotes a focus on fresh products for the sushi/sashimi market to differentiate from frozen products from Chile. The prefectural fishery cooperative established the Miyagi Coho Salmon Promotion Association, based in Ishinomaki City, and registered a geographical indication for their brand “Miyagi Salmon” in 2017.
