IN BRIEF - Conservationists raise alarm over wild fish killed inside B.C. salmon farms

CANADA
Thursday, June 13, 2019

A conservation charity said it's concerned by what it calls a "growing trend" of wild fish killed by the salmon farming industry on British Columbia's coast.

Stan Proboszcz, science advisor with Watershed Watch Salmon Society, said nine times as many wild fish were reported inside open-net pen farms in 2017 compared with 2011.

"We saw quite a staggering increase in incidental catch over the years," he said. "Something's wrong here if we're seeing this large increase in wild fish being killed inside salmon farms."

The society crunched the number of "incidental catches" self-reported by industry to government during harvests, fish transfers and farm relocations.

IN BRIEF - Early sockeye run greets combat fishermen on Russian River opener

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

COOPER LANDING, Alaska - In the three days leading up to the opening of the Kenai and Russian River, close to 8,000 salmon passed the Department of Fish and Games fish counter in the Russian River.

During the same period leading up to the opening date last season, fewer than 200 fish had been tallied at the same spot.

Many anglers who scouted spots late Monday night were able to quickly catch their limit of three sockeye shortly after midnight, and the good fishing continued through Tuesday morning.

By early Tuesday afternoon, crowds at on the river thinned as many anglers caught their limit in a short period. However, sections of the river near parking areas would still be best described as 'combat fishing'.

IN BRIEF - Renewables anchoring tech could be used for aquaculture

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

If successful, the initiative could help to promote the sustainable development of fish farming by allowing new sites to be located further out to sea.

Salmon farming critics claim coastal operations damage wild fish stocks, particularly through the spread of sea-lice, although the industry insists its impact on the environment is minimal.

IN BRIEF - Fisheries outcomes maximized through traditional practice

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

A new study led by a University of Rhode Island doctoral student and published in the Journal of Applied Ecology has found a possible solution to one of the biggest conservation and livelihood challenges in the marine realm.

Paul Carvalho, along with URI Assistant Professor Austin Humphries and colleagues from several other institutions, found that fishing grounds with areas that are closed to fisheries but are periodically harvested are better than fishing grounds with permanent, no-take marine protected areas.

IN BRIREF - Invasive pink salmon could return to Scottish rivers

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

A non-native species of fish could return to Scottish rivers in large numbers in 2019.

Pink salmon are native to Pacific Ocean waters but have spread to parts of northern Europe after being released into rivers in Russia in the 1960s.

Fisheries Management Scotland said 2017 saw "unprecedented numbers" of pink salmon in UK rivers.

It said due to the fishes' two-year life cycle the salmon could be seen again this year.

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

A London-based company is proposing a salmon aquaculture operation in Millinocket, Maine.

Aquaculture Management & Holding Co. said Tuesday that it is ready to begin building the plant after two years of planning and preparation. The Bangor Daily News reports that the company said earlier this year it intended to open a land-based salmon farm in the U.S. by 2022.

Steve Sanders, director of mill site redevelopment at Our Katahdin, tells the newspaper that the organization has been in discussion with several companies.

IN BRIEF - EU executive says - be ready for 'very possible' no-deal Brexit

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

BRUSSELS - The European Commission on Wednesday said a no-deal Brexit was “very much possible” as it updated its contingency preparations and told countries, companies and people to be ready for the expected economic fallout.

The European Union’s executive said it would pay particular attention in coming months to crucial areas including citizens rights, financial services, transport and fisheries, ahead of Britain’s departure from the bloc, now due on Oct.31.

Its latest review of the EU’s no-deal plans comes as Britain’s Conservative Party is picking a new prime minister to replace Theresa May, defeated by her inability to pass through the UK parliament the deal she secured with the bloc seven months ago.

IN BRIEF - Lerøy acquitted of welfare charges after ‘witch hunt’

NORWAY
Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Both the company’s Lerøy Midt division and Måsøval Fish Farming were reviewed by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority for having had very large numbers of lice on the fish at their farms in summer 2016.

The Authority wrote in a report that for Lerøy Midt the number of lice per fish during August 2016 developed to 60-100 lice per fish, and that the numbers had not been in the company’s weekly counts. According to the Authority, harvest data showed that 17% of the fish that were slaughtered were downgraded to so-called production fish because of open wounds.

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.

IN BRIEF - Lobster industry faces another deep cut in bait

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, June 11, 2019

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine - Lobster fishermen will likely have to contend with another deep cut to the availability of bait next year due to a Tuesday recommendation by a fishery management board.

Federal regulators have slashed the catch limits for Atlantic herring, which is an important source of bait for America's lucrative lobster fishery, over the past year. The New England Fishery Management Council voted Tuesday to again reduce the catch limits, this time to a little more than 25 million pounds in 2020.

The cut would reduce the Atlantic herring catch to its lowest level in decades, and less than a quarter of the 2017 total. The reduction comes on the heels of an earlier cutback that reduced this year's quota to less than 35 million pounds when the catch had been more than 200 million pounds just five years ago.
