IN BRIEF - Washington state’s fishing industry caught in US-China trade war

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

SEATTLE — Much of the Alaskan fishing fleet is based at Fishermen’s Terminal in Seattle. 

Like the waves themselves, Washington state’s seafood industry has ridden the economic ups and downs for generations as the prices of fish and crab fluctuate.

When asked about the trade war and counter tariffs between the U.S. and China, people in the fishing industry told KING 5 more about the effects of the Trump admiration’s tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum than the U.S. exports of fish to China.

EN BREVE - Consequences of the use of pesticides in salmon farming in Chile

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Farmed salmon in Chile have long suffered from parasites that interfere with the normal development of the fish. Many of these parasites are found in moderate abundance; Caligus (Caligus rogercresseyi) are the most recognized genus and the one that causes the most epidemic outbreaks in salmon farms.

Caligus or “sea louse” is a small crustacean that attaches to the surface of the skin and gills of salmon, generating significant injuries to the fish. The presence of this parasite affects both the physical development of the salmon and the quality of the product that is ultimately exported, producing great economic losses and generating annual costs of $300 million in pest control measures. Adding insult to injury, the large amounts and variety of pesticides applied to salmon farms to control these parasites represents an important source of pollutants for southern Chile’s aquatic environment.

Over the last 20 years, there have been two massive proliferation events of Caligus, which coincided with an increase in salmon production. For the control of pests, Emamectin Benzoate (PROCLAIM ® FORTE) and Deltramethrin (DECIS FORTE) have been used orally, the frequent use of which generated resistance and loss of effectiveness. At present, baths of azametifos (Byelice®) are used, an antiparasitic that manages to diminish by up to 98% the abundance of Caligus.

IN BRIEF - The costs of poor fishery management

Monday, May 13, 2019

Indonesia’s efforts to protect its fisheries, an important food source for the world’s fourth most populous country, by seizing and blowing up foreign poaching vessels has become well known globally and is paying off.

But, poaching is not the only problem the country’s intensively fished seas face. From the moment seafood are caught by local Indonesian fishers to being served on our plates, almost 40 per cent of them are lost and wasted due to poor fishery management. That’s worth around USD 7.28 billion worth of fish products annually.

IN BRIEF - Scientists Are Warning That We Absolutely Must Not Farm Octopuses

Monday, May 13, 2019

There's no denying that keeping livestock has deeply benefited humanity over the millennia. But, while sheep and cows may have adapted well to farm life, there's one animal humans like to eat that would fare poorly in farms.

Octopuses, scientists have argued in a new essay, should never be farmed - not just because of their intelligence, but because of the environmental impacts such farms would create.

It's already started. Global demand for octopus as a food is on the rise, which last year saw prices soaring amid poor supply. Prices are expected to remain high for at least the rest of 2019.

IN BRIEF - New fishing area provides wetlands access, honors conservationists

Monday, May 13, 2019

A few years ago, a lot on the water side of North Douglas Highway was overgrown and mostly forgotten, and became a spot for abandoned cars and drug use.

On Saturday 12ve of May 2019, that lot was full of children, kites and cookies. The property, about 2.7 miles north of the roundabout, is now the Marjory and Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site, allowing anglers and hunters to access the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge easily from Douglas Island.

Allison Gillum, executive director of Southeast Alaska Land Trust — which bought and renovated the property — said the area is night and day from how it used to be.

IN BRIEF - China, new growth market for Ireland's seafood exports

Monday, May 13, 2019

DUBLIN - China has become a new growth market for Ireland's seafood exports, revealed a report obtained by Xinhua on Sunday.

The report, prepared by BIM (Irish Sea Fisheries Board in English), a state agency responsible for developing the Irish marine fishing and aquaculture industries, showed that Ireland exported a total of EUR 47 million (about USD 53 million) worth of seafood products to China in 2018, up by 68 percent compared with a year ago.

The growth in the Chinese market stood in sharp contrast with the performance of the other major export markets for the Irish seafood products.

IN BRIEF - Gulf herring quota surprisingly high, says researcher

Wednesday, May 08, 2019

An ocean researcher is questioning why the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans has set a spring herring quota in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence that is double what was caught in 2018.

DFO says the spring herring stock has been in the critical zone since 2004, and there is a rebuilding plan in the works. Last year, 600 tonnes of this fish was caught in the region. DFO set a total allowable catch this year of 1,250 tonnes.

That was surprising to Katie Schleit, a senior fisheries advisor with Oceans North.

"We're also facing increasing threats from climate change, particularly in the gulf," said Schleit.
