IN BRIEF - Thousands of endangered sharks slaughtered by overfishing, new report reveals

NETHERLANDS
Thursday, June 27, 2019

Amsterdam - Activists from Greenpeace International confronted a fishing vessel on June the 26th of 2019 approximately 200 miles away from The Azores as it was hauling in sharks on a longline, capturing shocking footage of the vessel’s practices [see here]. The peaceful protest saw activists unfurl a banner with the message “Sharks Under Attack” and came as Greenpeace International releases a new report that reveals lack of protection in international waters is resulting in the deaths of tens of thousands of endangered sharks each year. 

In the North Atlantic, the Greenpeace ship Esperanza documented fishing vessels which, while known to be primarily catching swordfish, in fact collectively catch four times more sharks than swordfish (by weight).[1] During the protest, the crew saw only one swordfish caught by the Spanish vessel Ameal and at least 8 sharks pulled from a line nearly 40 miles long. The shark species are currently being identified. 

“It is absolutely immoral to kill sharks and other wildlife with these terrible fishing practices. We are exposing the culprits at sea now, but we urgently need a strong treaty and tighter fishing limits to protect our global oceans,” said Will McCallum of Greenpeace’s Protect the Oceans campaign, on board the Esperanza.

IN BRIEF - Crab-in-a-lab project a sustainable and clean way to restock dwindling numbers in the wild

SINGAPORE
Wednesday, June 26, 2019

Inside a lab in Temasek Polytechnic, dozens of mud crabs are scuttling, feeding and breeding - to meet Singaporeans' insatiable appetite for chilli crab and black pepper crab.

Due to over-harvesting and bad weather conditions brought by global warming, the mud crab populations in the Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Malaysia have dwindled by 30 per cent. Many crabs are also harvested before they reach maturity, which is an unsustainable farming practice.

The crustaceans - from tiny crablets to two-year-old female crabs waiting patiently to bear eggs - are housed in the Aquaculture Research Facility within the Centre for Aquaculture and Veterinary Science (CAVS).

IN BRIEF - How Do We Sustainably Address The U.S. Seafood Deficit?

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, June 26, 2019

Seafood plays a vital part of the American diet. It provides lean protein and essential omega-3 fatty acids that are beneficial to our brain, heart, and eyes. Currently, it's recommended that we eat seafood twice a week. As demand for seafood rises in concert with a growing population, many are concerned that the majority of seafood Americans consume—about 60%—is imported. Moreover, seafood caught by Americans is often sent overseas for processing.

At Capitol Hill Ocean Week earlier this month, government, industry and science groups met to discuss the seafood deficit at a conference open to the public. The panel was moderated by Linda Cornish, president of the Seafood Nutrition Partnership, which is a non-profit organization aiming to increase seafood consumption for human health.

IN BRIEF - Iceland salmon exports soar as new aqua bill approved

ICELAND
Wednesday, June 26, 2019

The announcement comes as Iceland’s parliament, the Althing, approved a new bill on the future of the industry which includes a number of amendments. The exports success reflects the growing confidence within the sector, which has built itself up slowly under highly stringent conditions,  that it is now set to play a key role in the future economy of the country.

The Confederation of Icelandic Fishery Companies (SFS) said farmed fish (mainly salmon) now represented 10 per cent of all seafood exports, remarkable in  a country which is renowned  for  its  huge focus on conventional deep sea fishing.

SFS said: “The ratio has never been higher. Looking ahead we can safely assume that aquaculture exports will reach ISK 25 billion (around GBP 160-million) this year.  It is therefore clear that aquaculture is establishing itself as an important export industry, which is attracting  a great deal of foreign currency to the country. ”

IN BRIEF - Cooke Aquaculture collaborating on study to track sulphide levels on seabed near salmon farms

AUSTRALIA
Tuesday, June 25, 2019

The consortium – led by Cooke Aquaculture and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) with funding from the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) – is exploring how measuring sulphides on the seabed could better track the impact of biomass from fish farms at six sites in Scotland and Canada, the SAIC wrote in a press release on Monday.

The study will be supported by Nova Scotia-based Dalhousie University, the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and the new approach is expected to monitor the impact of fish farms more quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively. The consortium is also consulting the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).
