Other Media | WorldFishing: COVID-19: Seafood is safe

Thursday, June 25, 2020

The World Health Organisation, UN Food and Agriculture Organisation and food safety agencies are seeking to reassure consumers that seafood is safe and is in no way related to the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Following an outbreak last week linked to Beijing’s largest food market, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention has ruled that salmon is not the source of infection.

In looking for the source of the new infection, imported goods have been mentioned in the media prompting experts at the Chinese National Health Commission to state of imported seafood that ‘there is no evidence so far showing salmon are the origin or intermediate hosts of the coronavirus’.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Crawfish aquaculture: a season in review

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

In the first installment of a new monthly column for The Fish Site, Professor Greg Lutz looks at how Louisiana’s crawfish farmers are faring in an extraordinary year for the sector.

This time of year, farmed crawfish season is winding down and mature animals that weren’t harvested before season’s end are already down in their burrows – hovering above tiny pools of water in sealed chambers and dreaming of eventual re-emergence in the fall, when producers re-flood their ponds to kick off the next season. For the crawfish, it’s a pretty straightforward, uncomplicated plan. One that Mother Nature has perfected over the past 200 million years.
