IN BRIEF - Warnings over new law to protect workers in Thai fishing industry

THAILAND
Friday, May 24, 2019

PHNOM PENH - A new law to address abuses in Thailand’s multi-billion dollar fishing industry contains loopholes, labor rights campaigners said on Thursday, warning of difficulties in enforcement.

The legislation published on Wednesday follows years of global scrutiny over abuse of Thai and migrant workers and mandates basic rights such as social security, medical care and rest periods. It will come into effect in six months.

But campaigners said the government would struggle to enforce the legislation and raised concerns that it remains vague on how any benefits would be accessed.

IN BRIEF - Small-scale Danish fishermen push back against industrial fishing

DENMARK
Thursday, May 23, 2019

Traditional fishermen in the Danish village of Thorupstrand are pushing back against large-scale fishing operations that they say are threatening their livelihood and through that, their way of life.

Most Danish fishing villages abandoned their traditional trade after Denmark privatised fishing quotas, allowing big industrial companies to buy them out almost completely.

Thorupstrand survived as a fishing village by sharing individual fishing rights between all the fishermen there, in a jointly-managed local cooperative — an example that researchers say can be followed by small-scale fisheries in other regions of Europe too.

IN BRIEF - How salmon farming can scale up sustainably

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

FEW parts of Scotland’s economy have attracted more interest over the last couple of years than aquaculture – particularly its largest constituent, salmon farming. In the past six months alone, it has been the subject of new environmental regulations, reports from ScottishParliament committees, and a subsequent parliamentary debate, and a BBC Panorama report.

Such a level of inquiry and debate is to be welcomed – if anything, it underlines the increasingly important role that aquaculture is playing in Scotland. Indeed, the sector’s latent potential was highlighted by a recent report from Highlands and Islands Enterprise, which found that the marine economy could be worth as much GBP 5 billion by 2035.
