IN BRIEF - Christmas prawn prices on the rise as drought hits supply on New South Wales north coast

AUSTRALIA
Monday, December 23, 2019

Prawn lovers are facing higher-than-normal prices this Christmas as the drought continues to have an impact on supply.

Professional Fishermen's Association CEO Tricia Beatty said the drought was taking a toll.

"It's a well-established fact that when you have drought on land, you have drought in water," Ms Beatty said.

"When you go to the land and see a farmer and his crops, you can see how they are directly impacted by the drought."

A 36-hour fish market frenzy has kicked off in Sydney, as shoppers scramble for their Christmas seafood staples.

IN BRIEF - Oslo opens way for sea farming expansion

NORWAY
Monday, December 23, 2019

Norway has mapped and identified 11 extensive new zones down its 1,650-mile long coastline that could be suitable for the future development of sea based offshore aquaculture.

The Directorate of Fisheries, which carried out the work in co-operation with the Institute of Marine Research, said the areas will probably have to go through further impact assessment before final approval.

The mapping has been limited to parts of the coast one nautical mile outside the baseline, but within Norway’s exclusive economic zone.

IN BRIEF - Norway’s seafood watchdog facing overhaul

NORWAY
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

Following an investigation, the global services and accounting organisation KPMG delivered a potentially crushing verdict last week on the organisation, essentially saying its systems, planning and monitoring supervision practices were not fit for purpose.

KPMG also said that management, the use of resources and some aspects of security were simply not good enough, adding that significant improvements were urgently needed.

Seafood Norway, the body which represents fishing and aquaculture companies, has welcomed the report.

Its CEO, Geir Ove Ystmark, said Norway had market access to more than 140 countries so it was vital the seafood industry had an efficient and well-functioning food inspection body to watch over catching, processing and the entire value chain in the aquaculture sector.

IN BRIEF - Norway Detects Radioactive Leak From Sunken Soviet Sub, Sees 'No Danger to People or Fish'

NORWAY
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

The Komsomolets sank 7 April 1989, after catching fire southwest of Bjørnøya in the Norwegian Sea. During the heroic attempts to extinguish the fire and save the reactor, and the ensuing ordeal in icy waters, 42 lives were lost, in one of the biggest tragedies in the history of the Soviet Navy.

The wrecked Soviet nuclear submarine Komsomolets is still leaking radioactive waste, 30 years after it sank southwest of Bjørnøya, a new report by the Norwegian Maritime Research Institute has confirmed.

This summer, the Institute of Marine Research, joined by their Russian colleagues and the Directorate of Radiation and Nuclear Safety (DSA), conducted direct research on the Komsomolets using a remotely controlled mini-sub, for the first time in thirty years.
