IN BRIEF - State seafood industry 'torn apart' by government's green agenda

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Queensland's commercial fishing industry is in danger of becoming a cottage industry and consumers are looking down the barrel of local seafood being replaced by imported product, according to the Queensland Seafood Industry Association.

New fishing regulations came into force at the start of September that build on changes to the Fisheries Act that took effect in May.

As a result, the seafood industry's peak body says their industry and the multi-generational families that earn their living from it have been torn apart by the political agenda of the state government.

After 100 years of involvement in all aspects of commercial fisheries management and consultation, QSIA president Keith Harris said they were now being excluded and ignored in matters that affect every part of their lives.

IN BRIEF - Seafood will get more attention in development of new U.S. dietary guidelines

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Federal agencies are meeting through next March to define U.S. dietary guidelines for 2020-25, and a high-powered group of doctors and nutritionists is making sure the health benefits of seafood are front and center.

For the first time in the 40-year history of the program, the dietary guidelines committee has posted the questions it is going to consider. They include the role of seafood in the neurocognitive development in pregnant moms for their babies, and in the diet of kids from birth to 24 months directly, said Dr. Tom Brenna, professor of pediatrics and nutrition at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas.

“We really got jazzed when we saw that because we wanted to figure out what the committee would find when it does its literature search on what medical evidence is out there and boy, did we find a lot,” Brenna said.

IN BRIEF - Climate crisis drives Tunisia fishing trade into troubled waters

Monday, September 09, 2019

oats gently knock together along the dock in Kelibia. The gentle melody of their wooden hulls colliding has been heard in this small Tunisian fishing village for decades. In the midday sun, fishermen feed scraps to stray cats in a scene that seems almost preserved in amber.

But the fishing trade is in its death throes here, as the pressures of the climate crisis impact on global fish stocks and put new social pressures on the fishermen themselves.

“At night sometimes, I dream of fish,” says Hafed Fayal, who has spent 30 of his 45 years at sea after leaving school to become a fisherman, taking to the waves each day on a small rubber dinghy he shares with others. “We used to get 300 dinar (£86) for 300kg of fish,” he says. “Now you’re lucky if you get 150 dinar for 35kg.”

IN BRIEF - Ministry to issue daily bulletin for fish prices

Monday, September 09, 2019

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) has announced the launch of an initiative that sets the maximum prices of fish and seafood and regulates their sale based on a mandatory bulletin.

In a statement Sunday, the ministry said the initiative is aimed at preventing unjustified price increases, cracking down on monopolistic practices and ensuring consumers’ right to purchase goods at reasonable prices.
The prices will be published daily following an auction that will take place under the supervision of the MoCI. The daily fish and seafood price bulletin will be released from Tuesday morning.

The initiative comes within the framework of the ministry's role in overseeing and regulating markets in line with its jurisdiction and taking the necessary measures to protect consumers, combat commercial fraud, promote competition and prevent monopolistic practices, the statement notes.

IN BRIEF - Mumbai’s sea will have more plastic than fish in a few years

Monday, September 09, 2019

It floats on the water, washes up on the beaches and ends up inside the bellies of our beautiful marine life. Our oceans are filling up fast with plastic, and by 2050, Mumbai’s seas might have more of it than fish, according to a study released by Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.

The study, titled ‘This Report is an Alarm For All Of Us’ highlights the appalling level of pollution in the Arabian Sea. Specifically, the report warns that:

The existence of nearly 700 marine species has been threatened due to the rising plastic pollution
Plastic pollution is also destroying the mangroves of Mumbai
In the past 70 years, our plastic consumption has increased by 99.57%!
Half of the 350 million metric tonnes of plastic has been produced in the last 10 years.
More than 50% of the plastic production is of single-use plastic which consists of low-density polyethene, high-density Polyethylene, PP, Polystyrene and PET. Methane and ethylene solar radiation produces greenhouse gases, which could further harm the environment.

IN BRIEF - Seafood Products From Kroger Have Been Recalled After Multiple Cases Of Scombroid Poisoning

Monday, September 09, 2019

Most of the time, you can tell by the smell of a food item if it has gone bad or isn’t safe to eat. Maybe the texture of it changed or it tastes off. With fish this is usually particularly evident because of its strong odor. But some Kroger customers have gotten ill from eating the supermarket’s spoiled fish and had no idea that what they were consuming wasn’t safe. There have been several cases of scombroid poisoning that was caused by Kroger’s yellowfin tuna steaks causing the FDA to issue a recall of the product, according to Today.

Scombroid poisoning is a serious condition and leads to some pretty undesirable symptoms, including flushing and rash on the face and body, sweating, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps. Health officials say that it is hard to tell just by the smell or look of the fish that it can lead to scombroid poisoning. It might not smell or even taste abnormal.
