IN BRIEF - UAF study finds Kotzebue Sound fish mercury levels are safe for consumption

Friday, October 04, 2019

Several years ago, an interest in mercury levels in the Kotzebue Sound prompted the local village authority to commission a study from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Last month, researchers came back with good news. Mercury levels in Kotzebue-area subsistence fish are safe.

When mercury gets into water, it changes chemically and is prone to affect local marine ecosystems.

“Under perfectly ideal conditions, you can get mercury that accumulates in fish,” said Andrew Cyr, one of the UAF researchers looking at Kotzebue-area fish.

While mercury occurs naturally, it is sometimes released in larger quantities by mining.

IN BRIEF - US to get a little more fish in catch pact with Canada

Thursday, October 03, 2019

LUBEC, Maine - American fishermen are expected to get a little more fishing quota under terms of an agreement with Canada.

The countries are home to fisheries for economically important species that cross international boundaries, such as cod and haddock. They reach agreement every year about how to divide catch on eastern Georges Bank, a critical fishing area off New England and Canada.

The New England Fishery Management Council says the U.S is scheduled to get 29% of the 1.4 million pound total allowable catch of cod on eastern Georges Bank in 2020. It's also slated for 54% of the 66 million pound total allowable catch of haddock in the area.

IN BRIEF - Galway researchers create tracking tool to ease fears about shellfish

Thursday, October 03, 2019

A consortium of researchers from GMIT and NUI Galway are making people more comfortable and safer with shellfish with the world’s first tool to trace it to its source.

Lead scientist in creating this shellfish tracking tool, Dr Conor Graham of GMIT, says “In recent years consumers have become more food conscious seeking traceability of produce and while such tools exist for agriculture”.

However he added that “until now no scientifically based system existed to trace both farmed and wild shellfish produce to their source.”

IN BRIEF - Financing fish: Banks can make seafood more sustainable in these 3 ways

Thursday, October 03, 2019

Meeting the world’s growing demand for seafood is a puzzle that crosses national borders, traversing the world’s oceans and freshwater fisheries: Global fish consumption has risen twice as quickly as population growth over the past five decades, and overfishing is creating unexpected problems for humans. As a result, sustainability researchers are intensely focused on how we can meet global demand without depleting the world’s supply of fish.

And while the free market may seem like an unlikely ally to the environment, the finance sector could play a crucial role in solving seafood’s sustainability problem, finds a study published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.

The authors of the study analyzed media coverage in two major fishing trade publications and data from more than 3,000 shareholders of 160 seafood firms, and they found three major financial sector tools that could push the international fishing industry to be more sustainable: banks, stock exchanges, and activist shareholders.

IN BRIEF - Oil market and European seafood exports the big concerns as Brexit looms

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

The countdown to Brexit is on, with the month of the UK’s withdrawal from Europe now upon us.

Issues have been highlighted by businesses since the referendum vote, and with the latest leave date now on the calendar, several key concerns remain.

With two of the six UK oil refineries on the South Humber Bank, one of the biggest issues should we face a No-Deal scenario is the unfair advantage it will grant to global producers.

Britain faces a 4.7 per cent tariff on fuel exports should we leave and face World Trade Organization rules, while the UK has established a 0 per cent import rate.

IN BRIEF - Norwegians probe rise in salmon escapes

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

Seafood Norway has called on its members to carry out a thorough investigation into why so many salmon have escaped from fish farms in 2019.

The latest figure of more than 280,000 escapes in 30 separate incidents is one of the highest for many years, and seafood minister Harald T Nesvik has bluntly told the industry it is time to get its house in order.

Now the organisation which represents both aquaculture and fishing companies has said it strongly regrets the high figure.

IN BRIEF - Alaska's salmon fisheries in hot water, scientists say

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Some of Alaska's salmon fisheries are in jeopardy according to researchers who are looking at this summer's record warm water temperatures.

According to Cook Inlet Keeper Science Director Sue Mauger, early July temperatures on the Deshka river were actually higher than what climate models have predicted through the year 2069 -- 80.4°F compared to the projection of about 79°F.

The temperatures of three other Alaskan rivers outpaced their 2069 projections: the Beaver, Slikok and Funny rivers. These measurements are alarming scientists, who say the long-term health of Alaska's salmon fisheries in a changing climate could be at risk.
