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.

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; The potential health benefits of eating fish; and Recommendations from the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
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.
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.

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.
