IN BRIEF - VN adopts EU recommendations to combat IUU fishing

VIET NAM
Wednesday, November 06, 2019

HÀ NÔI - Vi?t Nam had taken concrete steps in the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) based on the European Council's (EC) recommendations, said Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Phùng Ð?c Ti?n.

A national committee was founded in May to co-ordinate efforts made by central agencies and local authorities to combat IUU.

Vi?t Nam’s 28 coastal towns and provinces have each established their own anti-IUU units to supervise and inspect fishing activities. Fishing boats coming in and out of seaports are being asked to file reports on their cargoes, origin of product and ships' logs.

IN BRIEF - 'No proof' Greek vessel activity led to oil leak off Brazil coast: ship manager

BRAZIL
Tuesday, November 05, 2019

SAO PAULO/ATHENS - The manager of an oil tanker being probed by Brazilian authorities in connection with an oil spill off the country’s coast has found “no proof” of the vessel conducting activities that may have led to leaks on a journey between Venezuela and Malaysia.

In a statement sent to Reuters on Saturday, Delta Tankers Ltd, who manages the Greek-flagged Bouboulina ship, said a full search of the material from the cameras and sensors that all their vessels carry revealed no evidence of the tanker “having stopped, conducted any kind of ship-to-ship operation, leaked, slowed down or veered off course, on its passage from Venezuela to Melaka, Malaysia.”

IN BRIEF - Fishing vessel owner and skipper ordered to pay GBP 55,842.47 for fisheries offences

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, November 04, 2019

Ocean Venture II (S121) is an Irish registered and licensed stern trawler owned and operated by Cornelius and Ross Minihane, the directors of the Irish company Ocean Venture II Fishing Limited.

The court heard how the vessel departed Castletownbere on 17 May 2019 and Michael Harrington was master for the trip. The vessel was using two trawls, each with double codends, and during the trip fished in areas forming the Hake Recovery Zone, the Biologically Sensitive Area and the Celtic Sea Square Mesh Panel Area.

On 22 May 2019 the vessel was boarded by MMO marine enforcement officers from Ocean Osprey. The subsequent inspection found seven offences relating to inaccurate catch recording and the codends used. The master also failed to produce a stowage plan.

IN BRIEF - ASOC issues urgent call for global leaders to protect Antarctic waters

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, November 04, 2019

The Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition is calling for urgent action from global leaders to protect Antarctic waters. This week, Members of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) were unable to reach consensus on marine protections in the Southern Ocean at their annual meeting in Hobart.

"We urgently need global leadership to reflect the importance of protecting the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica. The science is settled. It is only political will preventing the creation of new marine protections in the world’s last great wilderness," said Claire Christian, executive director of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition.

CCAMLR was the first opportunity for action and political leadership following the release of the U.N.’s IPCC Special Report, which warns of the damaging impact climate change is having on the world’s oceans and polar regions. Despite this, some countries arrived at the meeting with no mandate to take action on the findings of this report by urgently supporting the designation of MPAs.

IN BRIEF - Appeal Court confirms regional councils may not override fisheries management

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, November 04, 2019

In an Appeal Court judgment issued today, it was determined that regional councils are precluded from undertaking actions for Fisheries Act purposes.

Such purposes include conserving, using, enhancing, developing or allocating fisheries resources, and also any actions to avoid, remedy or mitigate the effects of fishing on the wider aquatic environment.

Fisheries Inshore New Zealand chief executive, Dr Jeremy Helson, said: "We are pleased the Court has confirmed that fisheries management remains the concern of the Fisheries Act.

IN BRIEF - Stop herring fishery to save troubled orcas, environmental groups say

CANADA
Monday, November 04, 2019

Environmental groups are calling for the immediate closure of the herring fishery in the Strait of Georgia, citing steep declines in the herring population between 2016 and 2019.

But industry watchers can’t quite figure out their math.

Action is necessary to protect endangered chinook salmon populations and southern resident killer whales, said Ian McAllister, executive director of Pacific Wild. “Shutting the herring fishery down to let stocks recover should be the first course of action.”

He argues that the baseline for abundance set by Fisheries and Oceans Canada was set after local stocks had been substantially depleted by a decades-long industrial-scale fishery. The Pacific herring fishery was shut down for several years, beginning in 1967, after populations collapsed due to overfishing.

IN BRIEF - Global Warming Is Already Destroying New England’s Fisheries

UNITED STATES
Monday, November 04, 2019

To wake up in the Northeastern United States—as California blazes and Japan digs itself out of typhoon damage—is to experience an uneasy gratitude for all that is not burning, battered or underwater. Seven years out from Superstorm Sandy, we know not to get cocky, but there’s a relief in being able to worry about work and more pedestrian finances instead of evacuation plans, or ordering the right kind of smoke mask. It’s a small luxury in climate-didn’t-come-for-me-today compartmentalization.

But deep down, we know better. And if the national discussion hasn’t moved to climate change in the Northeast yet, it soon will. The effects are already profound—they just happen to be underwater.

Fourth-generation fisherman Al Cottone holds no illusions of being spared climate impacts in 2019.  He captains one of the 15 fishing boats still active in the waters around Gloucester, Massachusetts. Not a decade ago, there were 50. To fish in the Gulf of Maine—the ocean inlet spanning from Cape Cod up to the southern tip of Nova Scotia—is to navigate one of the fastest-warming bodies of water on the planet. “It’s not something you see with your naked eye,” Cottone told me. “But fish are definitely reacting differently, and I’m attributing it to climate change. We’re seeing them in deeper water—they’re trying to get the right temperature at depth.”

IN BRIEF - Aquaculture industry under pressure on both coasts

UNITED STATES
Friday, November 01, 2019

ELLSWORTH — Maquoit Bay in Brunswick and Puget Sound in Washington state are separated by thousands of miles, but shellfish farmers in both places are feeling some heat.

Earlier this month, a federal judge in Seattle ruled that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit that authorizes virtually all shellfish aquaculture in Washington state was void because “the Corps has failed to adequately consider the impacts of commercial shellfish aquaculture activities” as required by the federal Clean Water Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.

The court’s order could force Washington’s shellfish farmers to cease activities other than the harvest of animals already in the water until the Corps issues individual permits for each shellfish farming site.
