IN BRIEF - No-deal Brexit can make our fisheries world leaders

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, August 23, 2019

HAT will happen to our fisheries if we reach 31 October with no deal? At one second past midnight EU time, control – or ‘competence’ in EU jargon – is automatically returned from Brussels to Westminster. This includes control of our nation’s marine resource in our Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 200 nautical miles from the shoreline (or the median point where the sea is less than 400 nautical miles wide). It then becomes the responsibility of Members of Parliament, who are under no obligation as to how they, through the Government, manage that resource apart from honouring our obligations to follow the guidelines of International Law under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

On 1 November, therefore, Westminster is in full control. There can be no excuses, no ifs or buts, or following party lines. Every individual MP is now responsible for this competency. This should be a really positive change but there is a problem. Our Parliament has shown that it can’t be trusted. It contains some members who have made remaining in the EU their principal objective. We will be starting with a clean sheet. Yet it is people like Dominic Grieve who will be in charge. The responsibility for turning fisheries into either a real Brexit success story or a complete failure rests entirely with Westminster. Will the Remainers wreck this one and only opportunity to rejuvenate our coastal communities and to become world fishery leaders in management environmentally? We will soon find out.

IN BRIEF - Illegal abalone dealers pay the heavy price for breaking fishing laws

AUSTRALIA
Friday, August 23, 2019

A police traffic stop in Morley a year and a half ago has resulted in one man being ordered to pay more than AUD 9,700 and another more than AUD 7,700 for illegally dealing in abalone.

Police handed the case over to Fisheries and Marine Officers from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, when they found a large amount of abalone on the back seat of the vehicle the men were in.

After the Police officers contacted the department, the 109 abalone were seized by Fisheries officers, who charged the men with offences related to dealing in abalone.

EN BREVE - A seafood fraud investigation DNA tested fish sold in the US. Here’s what they found

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Here’s a fishy riddle. Question: when is a sea bass not a sea bass? Answer: when it’s a giant perch. That’s the conclusion of a recent study on fish sold to consumers in the United States, which found that 20% of the samples tested were mislabelled.

The study, by Oceana, a US non-profit dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans, sampled 449 fish purchased from shops and restaurants in 24 US states and the District of Columbia. DNA testing was used to establish the true identity of the samples.

IN BRIEF - Half a billion invested in fisheries projects

OMAN
Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Muscat - Work is continuing on 10 fishery projects in Oman that have seen investments of nearly half a billion rials, as the country moves to become more self-sufficient in terms of food security.

The 10 projects have been listed in the annual report of the government’s Implementation, Support and Follow-up Unit (ISFU), which oversees the nation’s Tanfeedh programme for economic expansion.

A total of OMR487.2 million has been earmarked for these 10 projects, which will involve the setting up of aquaculture farms where marine animals can be fed and raised for food, some of which will be exported to other markets. Of these projects, five are shrimp farms and two involve abalone farming, while a fish hatchery, algae cultivation and a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) are also under development.

IN BRIEF - Closure of the Directed Federal Illex Squid Fishery

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Based on recent landings data, effective at 00:01 hours on August 21, the directed federal Illex squid fishery is closed for the remainder of the fishing year through December 31, 2019. Permit holders are prohibited from fishing for, catching, possessing, transferring, or landing more than 10,000 lb of Illexsquid per trip Vessels can land Illex squid only once per calendar day. This prohibition is required by regulation because we project that 95 percent of the 2019 annual catch limit (quota) will have been caught by the effective date. This fishery will reopen at the beginning of the 2020 fishing year, at 00:01 hours, January 1, 2020.

EN BREVE - Enabling precision aquaculture with real time data and forecasting

EUROPEAN UNION
Friday, August 16, 2019

Aquaculture is a rapidly growing industry and with the right tools, fish farmers can really reap the rewards of this method of farming.

Aquaculture can offer a high volume of product with a better economic yield for farmers while also becoming more environmentally sustainable. Aquaculture is just one way of meeting the world’s demand for high quality protein as the global population rapidly increases. Europe has been at the forefront of safety standards when it comes to aquaculture, with over 25% of the seafood consumed in the EU coming from the sector. The task of improving quality, however, does not end with the opportunity to improve methods; as waters are still at risk of threats that will need to be prevented or corrected. This means that aquaculture farmers still face many challenges, from reducing production costs and labour to losing stock to diseases and water contamination.
