IN BRIEF - Updated FDA advice for women on eating fish

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued new information for women on eating fish. The document updates advice issued jointly by FDA and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2017.

The advice categorizing fish based on their mercury levels has not changed but the update further promotes science-based recommendations in Dietary Guidelines for Americans on the importance of fish in healthy eating patterns. FDA/EPA advice has been expanded and fish and shellfish now are referred to collectively as “fish” in text and a chart that highlight:

The nutritional value of fish;

IN BRIEF - ASC Response to SeaChoice Statement on Updates to the ASC Salmon Standard

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

ASC welcomes constructive feedback from all its varied stakeholders, and notes that SeaChoice continues to consider ASC’s standards more rigorous than other aquaculture certifications. However, SeaChoice’s criticism of the latest changes to the ASC Salmon Standard includes misleading inaccuracies and seeks to pre-emptively undermine the progress that will be made in addressing sealice with the new approach. The original PTI methodology was created amidst a lack of information about the actual performance of salmon farms and their use of parasiticides and as such was essentially untested.

ASC strongly believes in the importance of regularly monitoring and assessing its standards and is proud to be able to do so in this case by using data that would not be publicly available without the ASC programme. This update is based on several years of analysis of information collected through our programme and other performance data generated by governments and salmon producers across the world. We found that while PTI was an innovative solution at the time, advances in technology and knowledge since then have left it less effective.

IN BRIEF - India and Sri Lanka’s violent fight over fish

SRI LANKA
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Fishing is the economic lifeline for villages in northern Sri Lanka. But after a decades-long civil war, fishers returned to find their fish stocks depleted — and they pointed a finger squarely at neighboring India.

As people in India developed methods to increase hauls, and crossed a maritime border that was more permeable during the war, they depleted the fish stock for both sides. Now the Sri Lankan Navy is retaliating with force, making the relationship between the two communities that rely on these waters worse.

This is the latest episode of Vox Borders: India. In this episode, Vox Borders looks at how the drawing of a maritime border and lack of access to fish caused a conflict between two communities that used to live in harmony.

On the shores of Lake Malawi, a crowd eagerly awaits the arrival of a white and yellow cedarwood boat carrying its haul.

The crew of six deliver a single net of chambo, sardine and tiny usipa fish from the boat, just one of 72 vessels that land their catch every day on the beach at Senga Bay.

But overfishing and climate change have taken their toll.

Hundreds of local traders gather each morning and afternoon at Senga only to find that fish populations are falling in Lake Malawi, Africa’s third-largest body of freshwater.

IN BRIEF - An app for fishermen to identify banned species

INDIA
Monday, July 15, 2019

Fisherfolk in Ras Al Khaimah will now know if the fish they caught must be returned into the water - thanks to a new smart app that can detect 21 types of banned fish.

Launched by the Ras Al Khaimah Fishermen Society recently, the app is called 'Augmented Reality Measurement' and it can be easily downloaded on mobile phones and other smart devices.

"It runs even without an Internet connection, so fishermen can use it while they are out in the sea. It helps fishermen measure their catch and put the banned fish they caught back into the water," said Humaid Al Zaabi, deputy chairman of the society.
