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

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 - Scientists Are Warning That We Absolutely Must Not Farm Octopuses

WORLDWIDE
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 - The costs of poor fishery management

TAIWAN
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.
