Other Media | WWF:MSC certification of bluefin tuna fishery before stocks have recovered sets dangerous precedent

Saturday, August 01, 2020

Rome, Italy - The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), has just announced its first eco-certification of an Atlantic bluefin tuna fishery, while admitting it will take a minimum of five years for the population numbers of the species to return to healthy levels [1]. WWF opposes the certification, believing it will hinder the full recovery of one of the world’s most valuable fish stocks.

After a two-year consultation and an objection filed by WWF, the adjudicator did not uphold the objections against the MSC certification for bluefin tuna granted to a Japanese fishery.

IN BRIEF - Mass proliferation of reproductive stem cells 1 to 1700 rainbow trout hatching

Monday, August 03, 2020

The team of Professor Goro Yoshizaki (Fish Aquaculture) of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology said that he succeeded in the world's first successful growth of large numbers of reproductive cells, which are the source of rainbow trout eggs and sperm, in a test tube. Published in "Communications Biology". Eggs and sperm were made from only one male stem cell and 1700 hatched. It is steadily growing into an adult fish and is expected as a technology that enables mass production while protecting valuable fish from fish resources.

Prof. Yoshizaki explained that he would like to contribute to aquaculture production and conservation of endangered species. "A salmon or trout close to rainbow trout can be used for conservation projects in a few years. Application to bluefin tuna will be realized in about 5 years. I want to aim for."

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Nova Austral’s liquidity squeeze results in 180 million-dollar losses for bondholders

Monday, August 03, 2020

Big challenges after extensive losses.

With major coronavirus problems in Chile and its main fresh markets, the United States and Brazil, salmon prices have fallen, giving way to a significant drop in fish. Among those who have frozen salmon are Nova Austral, owned by private equity companies Altor and Bain Capital. Nova Austral, which farms at the southern tip of Chile, has also struggled with high mortality, misreporting, fines and litigation. Despite this, Nova Austral plans a significant build-up in biomass in the years ahead.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: First salmon harvested at Mowi Scotland organic site

Monday, August 03, 2020

Mowi Scotland has harvested its first organic salmon, grown in Loch Ewe. The fish will be sold under a newly created brand, the Scottish Organic Salmon Company, the company revealed in its monthly newsletter, The Scoop.

The organic harvest is the result of years of planning and collaboration with the farming, technical, processing and sales teams in Mowi Ireland, which has a primarily organic output.

Mowi Scotland technical manager Rory Campbell, who wrote a thesis on organic salmon production for a Masters in Business Administration (MBA), told The Scoop: “Everybody involved in this project has put in a great deal of time, hard work and effort, and it’s been really great to see everything finally come together with the first organic harvest at Loch Ewe.”

Other Media | FiskerForum: Illegal Greenpeace activity merits police involvement

Monday, August 03, 2020

As Greenpeace activists pull yet another carefully-timed publicity stunt by dropping rocks in the Baltic near the island of Rügen, supposedly to disrupt trawlers, sitting Member of the German Parliament and president of the German Fisheries Association Gero Hocker wants to see action from the police.

‘Introducing boulders into the Baltic Sea off Rügen violates laws and generates hazards to navigation. If you look at the marine casualty statistics, you can see that trawler losses are mainly due to fishing gear coming fast on obstructions,’ he said.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: NOAA establishes national-level criteria for observer waivers in wake of criticism

Saturday, August 01, 2020

NOAA Fisheries announced on 30 July that it has identified national-level observer waiver criteria, and that the redeployment of observers in the Northeast U.S. will begin 14 August.

The national criteria comes in the wake of Seafood Harvesters of America calling on NOAA Fisheries earlier this month to develop more consistent policies regarding observer waiver criteria. A letter sent by Seafood Harvesters of America called NOAA’s policy regarding at-sea coverage “inconsistent and unequal.”

Other Media | WorldFishing: Revolutionary invention for oyster farming

Thursday, July 30, 2020

A Polish man has invented a revolutionary device that allows for three times more oysters within the same area of seabed.

Grzegorz Skawinski’s product has a unique rotating cage system whereby oyster sacks are placed one above the other, rather than traditional farming of side by side on trestles, saving space on the seabed and increasing production.

Normally each oyster bag is turned by hand – five in a row on a trestle. Grzegorz’s system allows 16 to be turned in one rotation. The project currently in prototype stage has other benefits too.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Earnings down for Sølvtrans but it expects an increase in wellboat services demand 'as a result of production growth'

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Sølvtrans is positive about future prospects for the wellboat market despite a drop in earnings in 2019.

Wellboat company Sølvtrans, which sent the “Ronja Storm” to the Tasmanian salmon farmer Huon Aquaculture earlier this year, has announced its annual results for 2019. This shows both a fall in turnover and operating profit compared to 2018.

At the end of last year, the equity was EUR 83 million, which gives an equity ratio of 17.4 per-cent.

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Other Media | SeafoodSource: ASC translates standards for farmers in Indonesia

Thursday, July 30, 2020

The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) has converted its shrimp, tilapia, and tropical marine finfish standards – and other guidance documents – into the Indonesian language to drive more local farmers towards implementing responsible practices, ASC said in a statement on 24 July.

Indonesia is the second-largest producer of farmed fish in the world, with tilapia and shrimp being major species. ASC considers it as an important country to push for sustainable aquaculture practices.

Along with the translation of the full standards, other documents – including audit manuals and certification requirements for a single site and group certification – have also been translated into the local language, which will be followed by training courses.
