IN BRIEF - Small-scale Danish fishermen push back against industrial fishing

DENMARK
Thursday, May 23, 2019

Traditional fishermen in the Danish village of Thorupstrand are pushing back against large-scale fishing operations that they say are threatening their livelihood and through that, their way of life.

Most Danish fishing villages abandoned their traditional trade after Denmark privatised fishing quotas, allowing big industrial companies to buy them out almost completely.

Thorupstrand survived as a fishing village by sharing individual fishing rights between all the fishermen there, in a jointly-managed local cooperative — an example that researchers say can be followed by small-scale fisheries in other regions of Europe too.

VIET NAM

NINH THU?N - The south-central province of Ninh Thu?n expects to produce 33-35 billion shrimp fry this year against 31 billion last year, the province’s Fisheries Seed Producers Association said.

The fry, mostly of black-tiger shrimp and white-legged shrimp, are sold in the province and all over the country, according to Lê Van Quê, its chairman.

There are around 450 household-scale establishments and 1,200 farms in the province producing shrimp seeds, according to its Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

IN BRIEF - How salmon farming can scale up sustainably

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

FEW parts of Scotland’s economy have attracted more interest over the last couple of years than aquaculture – particularly its largest constituent, salmon farming. In the past six months alone, it has been the subject of new environmental regulations, reports from ScottishParliament committees, and a subsequent parliamentary debate, and a BBC Panorama report.

Such a level of inquiry and debate is to be welcomed – if anything, it underlines the increasingly important role that aquaculture is playing in Scotland. Indeed, the sector’s latent potential was highlighted by a recent report from Highlands and Islands Enterprise, which found that the marine economy could be worth as much GBP 5 billion by 2035.

IN BRIEF - Shark catfish exports to US, China fall

VIET NAM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

MEKONG DELTA — Exports of Mekong Delta shark catfish to the US and China, two of the biggest buyers of the products, have dropped compared to the figure in 2018.

According to seafood exporters in the Mekong Delta, shark catfish exports have been erratic, and the demand in big markets such as China and the US has fallen.

Exports to mainland China and Hong Kong in March were worth US$39.5 million, 12.9 per cent lower than last year, while exports to the US saw a 44 per cent drop.

IN BRIEF - Bangladesh’s Fishing Ban Leaves Coastal Towns in ‘Nightmare Situation’

BANGLADESH
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

DHAKA, Bangladesh — This time of year, Mohammad Shamsuddin normally earns about USD 120 a month working with the crew of a fishing boat off the coast of Bangladesh.

But on Monday, the central government imposed a 65-day national ban on coastal fishing — the most restrictive ever in Bangladesh, a poor and densely populated country where fish play a central role in the economy and diet.

Mr. Shamsuddin, 30, promptly reduced by about a third the amount of food that he buys for himself, his wife and their three children.

“But I won’t be able to run my family for the next two months with this little amount of savings,” he said by telephone from Bhola District, about a 155-mile drive south from the capital, Dhaka. “And when the savings run dry, my life will be a nightmare.”

IN BRIEF - Extreme draining of reservoir aids young salmon and eliminates invasive fish

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

A new study finds that the low-cost, extreme draining of a reservoir in Oregon aided downstream migration of juvenile chinook salmon -- and led to the gradual disappearance of two species of predatory invasive fish in the artificial lake.

The study is published in the journal Ecohydrology.

The elimination of largemouth bass and crappie from Fall Creek Reservoir, about 30 miles southeast of Eugene in in the Willamette River basin, could have management implications for reservoirs that have been invaded by certain species of fish that eat other fish, according to Christina Murphy, a recent Oregon State University doctoral graduate and lead author on the study.

IN BRIEF - Cameroonian fish farmers set a strategy to develop national aquaculture production

CAMEROON
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Cameroonian fish farmers met on May 14 and 15, 2019, under the supervision of the Ministry of Livestock, to define a strategy to increase aquaculture production in the country, it is officially reported.

Current aquaculture production is about 15,000 tons a year for an estimated 230,000 tons of total fish production. The farmers intend to increase aquaculture to limit massive imports, which absorbed XAF114 billion in 2017.

Government’s mid-term ambition is to increase its aquaculture production to 100,000 tons per annum.

IN BRIEF - Fish inflation hits Young’s profits

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

The Grimsby based business today reported second quarter (January 1 to March 30) turnover of GBP 134.2 million, down by just over GBP 2 million on the same period 2018.

The EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) slumped from GBP 5.5 million 12 months ago to GBP 4 million 2019.

Young’s CEO Bill Showalter referred briefly to the ‘challenges associated with raw material inflation’,

There is no doubt that the cost of principal species such as cod, haddock and salmon have risen sharply over the past 12 months, placing pressure on all UK seafood processors.

IN BRIEF - Giant fish’s comeback boosts Amazon preservation efforts

FINLAND
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Several metres long and weighing hundreds of kilograms, the Amazon’s pirarucu was almost fished to extinction.

But the creation of sustainable development reserves in Brazil has ensured the giant fish — and its indigenous hunters — are flourishing again.

The resurgence of one of the world’s largest freshwater fish is the result of Brazil’s years-long efforts to combine scientific and traditional know-how to preserve the country’s rich biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods for indigenous communities in the Amazon.

Spanning more than 7.4mn acres, the Mamiraua and neighbouring Amana Sustainable Development Reserves in the upper reaches of the Amazon river were created in the 1990s by the state government.
