IN BRIEF - Shortage of little fish for bait means big problem for lobster industry

Monday, April 01, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine - The boom times for the U.S. lobster industry are imperiled this year because of a shortage of a little fish that has been luring the crustaceans into traps for hundreds of years.

Members of the lobster business fear a looming bait crisis could disrupt the industry during a time when lobsters are as plentiful, valuable and in demand as ever. America's lobster catch has climbed this decade, especially in Maine, but the fishery is dependent on herring — a schooling fish other fishermen seek in the Atlantic Ocean.

Federal regulators are imposing a steep cut in the herring fishery this year, and some areas of the East Coast are already restricted to fishing, months before the lobster season gets rolling. East Coast herring fishermen brought more than 200 million pounds of the fish to docks as recently as 2014, but this year's catch will be limited to less than a fifth of that total.

IN BRIEF - World can plan for WA salmon

Monday, April 01, 2019

WA wild salmon is making a comeback into Great Southern supermarket aisles in fresh new cans from Mendolia Seafoods.

The cans come after years of effort to put Australian wild salmon back on the dinner table by Parry Beach fisherman Mark Shepherd.

Mr Shepherd, who supplied Mendolia Seafoods with freshly caught salmon from Denmark, said it had been a difficult journey.

“It’s a shame because labelling it as cat food has put the fish into a low level,” he said.

IN BRIEF - Royals confronted over salmon farms

Monday, April 01, 2019

King Harald and Queen Sonja experienced an unusual end to their six-day state visit to Chile over the weekend, when they were suddenly surrounded by angry demonstrators in the southern city of Punta Arenas. The royal couple took it in stride, with the monarch even claiming that it was a good example of Chile’s hard-won democracy.

“Our impression was that (the confrontration) was an expression of free speech and exchange of opinions,” King Harald told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK), which was covering the state visit that began last week in Santiago. “They (the demonstrators) must be allowed to express their opinions.”

IN BRIEF - Greek Fishermen Are Netting More Garbage than Fish

Monday, April 01, 2019

At 47, Dimitris Dalianis has never thought of himself as an eco-warrior. Like trawler captains the world over, fish has been his business. But after 30 years on the high seas the man has acquired a reputation for removing trash from the waters. "Bottles, cans, plastics, they're commonplace," he says, "I've seen dolphins and turtles out there and I know they ingest it. The sea can be cruel, it can make a man hard, but it feels good to know we are dealing with it and the crew likes the little bonus too."

Returning to land after a three- or four-day trip, Dimitris's onboard waste bin would usually be overflowing with garbage everything from plastic crates, plastic bottles and plastic sheeting to carpets and cans. The good news is; all of it will be taken to the warehouse laboratory for analysis and, if it can, be either recycled or upcycled.

IN BRIEF - Record 1,100 dolphins wash up on French shores in 2019

Friday, March 29, 2019

The dolphins’ bodies were horribly mutilated, the fins cut off.

But what shocked French marine researchers wasn’t just the brutality of the deaths of these highly intelligent mammals, but also the numbers involved — a record 1,100 have washed up on France’s Atlantic coast since January.

The mass deaths, widely blamed on aggressive industrial fishing, have alarmed animal welfare groups and prompted France’s ecology minister to launch a national plan to protect them.
