IN BRIEF - Captain admits throwing illegally caught fish overboard

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 24, 2019

GREENVILLE - A fishing captain has pleaded guilty to throwing away fish to prevent the Coast Guard from seizing it.

Federal prosecutors say in a Tuesday news release that 51-year-old William Juel of South Carolina pleaded guilty to disposing of illegally caught fish.

Authorities say the Coast Guard approached his boat and boarded it in November 2017. The release says Coast Guard investigators videotaped Juel throwing fish overboard to prevent them from seizing the catch. Court documents say he was in the jurisdiction of North Carolina-based federal prosecutors.

Prosecutors say the illegal catch included a type of grouper closed to fishing because quotas had been met that year.

IN BRIEF - SSA Mourns the Passing of Founding Director, Former President, and Industry Leader Elaine Knight

UNITED STATES
Monday, July 22, 2019

Seventeen years ago, leaders of the shrimp industry from across the country’s southern coastline came together in response to what they saw as an immediate threat to the continued existence of the commercial fishery.  Volunteering their time, their money, and their reputations, these industry veterans built a national response to the challenges facing shrimpers throughout the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico.

Miss Elaine was a founding Director of the Southern Shrimp Alliance and served two terms as the President of this organization.  She was also a founding Director and the first President of Wild American Shrimp, Inc., the shrimp industry’s first national marketing initiative.  Miss Elaine served the industry in a broad range of capacities, spending several terms as the Vice-President and Secretary of the Georgia Shrimp Association, acting as part of the National Sea Grant Review Board for two terms while also participating for many years on the National Sea Grant Assessment Team, and serving as a member of the South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council for three consecutive terms, two of them as Council Chair.

IN BRIEF - India begins regulating its fisheries

INDIA
Monday, July 22, 2019

Last month, June 2019, the Indian government created its first ministry for fisheries. Although it clubs fishing together, rather oddly, with animal husbandry and dairy, the move fulfills a long-standing demand of the country’s fishing community and becomes the latest, and potentially the most important, of India’s slowly growing efforts to better regulate and manage its fisheries.

Fishing has transformed over the decades from a small-scale artisanal practice into an increasingly industrialised sector. The widespread adoption of mechanised boats helped hike India’s fish catch from an estimated 0.53 million metric tons in 1950 to 3.83 million metric tons in 2017.

Until recently, this growth was largely unregulated, leading to over-capacity of fishing boats, inter-state conflict and overfishing of some species. But as yields have slowed in the past decade, including an unexpected crash in the sardine catch, India’s coastal states have begun to take measures to make fishing more sustainable. Some are also pressing for better national regulation.

To reduce plastic use, the ministry has set up plants to produce flake ice that could be put into cool boxes for fishermen.

IN BRIEF - Fishermen's association still against PSR project

MALAYSIA
Friday, July 19, 2019

GEORGE TOWN - The Penang Fishermen’s Association is not seeking compensation but wants the Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project to be cancelled, said its chairman, Nazri Ahmad.

He expressed disappointment with the state government for having given the impression that they (fishermen) would not oppose the project if fairly compensated.

“In the long-term, the compensation will not make up for our loss, ” he told a media conference here today.

He said the project would destroy their source of income, hence their livelihood.

IN BRIEF - LegaSea laments 'madness' of trying to manage NZ fisheries with property rights

NEW ZEALAND
Friday, July 19, 2019

The Quota Management System has short-changed fish, mana whenua and the public since it was established in 1986.

The system was set up with the quota owners having to pay resource rentals. This only lasted a few years. For the past 30 years the commercial fishing industry has not paid for the use of these publicly-owned resources.

"Incredibly, we gave away most of our fisheries at no charge," said LegaSea spokesman Scott Macindoe.

IN BRIEF - Spinney Creek Shellfish files new aquaculture application

UNITED STATES
Friday, July 19, 2019

ELIOT, Maine - After dropping its bid for an aquaculture expansion on the Kittery side of Spinney Creek, Spinney Creek Shellfish has filed a new application for the Eliot side, now seeking a smaller, standard lease of 2.75 acres.

The oyster company has submitted a draft application to the state Department of Marine Resources (DMR), stating it would relinquish its 12 existing limited purpose aquaculture licenses if its new request is granted. Per the application, the lease would allow for a maximum of 600 suspended cages to grow oysters and quahogs in a subtidal zone of Spinney Creek.

A scoping session was held Wednesday in Eliot, where members of the public could comment before Spinney Creek Shellfish officially submits its application, for which a hearing will likely be scheduled for late fall or winter.

IN BRIEF - Fish farm on Cape Breton reserve pairs up with Cooke Aquaculture

CANADA
Friday, July 19, 2019

The We'koqma'q First Nation in Cape Breton is partnering with fish farming giant Cooke Aquaculture to help with the sales and marketing of the reserve's Bras d'Or Lakes steelhead trout.

Since 2011, a trout farm has been in operation at the reserve. Chief Rod Googoo said it has grown to have more than 50 people work at the fish farm, hatchery and processing plant. The operation has about 60 cages in the Bras d'Or Lakes.

"We started off small and we gradually built up steam and we got bigger and we got better at what we do, and we did it over a short period of time," said Googoo, who estimates they will harvest between CAD 10-12 million of fish in 2019.
