IN BRIEF - Powered by nature: Norwegian cruise operator signs rotten fish biogas deal

NORWAY
Monday, May 27, 2019

OSLO - Norwegian cruise ship operator Hurtigruten has signed a 7.5-year deal to buy liquefied biogas (LBG) made from dead fish and other organic waste to help power its vessels, the firm said on Thursday.

Under the contract with Biokraft, Hurtigruten ships will start receiving near-daily supplies of LBG, with the first delivery taking place in 2020, it added.

The company last year said it would invest about USD 800 million to refit six vessels to partly run on the renewable fuel.

“?ur ships will literally be powered by nature. Biogas is the greenest fuel in shipping, a no-brainer for us, and a huge advantage for the environment,” Hurtigruten chief executive Daniel Skjeldam said in a statement.

The firm declined to provide a figure for the total value of the contract.

AUSTRALIA
Monday, May 27, 2019

Australian aquatic ecologists say the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP) falls short on safety and efficacy while calling for more research and funding before the deadline at the end of 2018.

Researchers were investigating whether a species-specific herpes virus, Cyprinid herpesvirus-3, could reduce numbers of European carp in the Australian waterways where the pest was detrimental to the native environment.

At the end of last year researchers were given a 12-month extension to analyse some of the research gaps identified.

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.
