IN BRIEF - Aquaculture bill raises concern among Outer Cape shellfishermen

UNITED STATES
Monday, November 11, 2019

WELLFLEET - Hard on the heels of the town’s friendly taking of HDYLTA Trust flats and beach, Outer Cape shellfishermen met with state Rep. Sarah Peake, D-Provincetown, and state Sen. Julian Cyr, D-Truro, Friday to discuss threats to the future of the industry.

“We care about the industry, we know many of the people, and are willing to go to bat for you,” Cyr told a standing room only crowd in Preservation Hall.

The Wellfleet Shellfishermen’s Association hosted the meeting, which shellfishermen from other Cape towns were invited to attend and participate in.

IN BRIEF - Salmon harvesting jobs lost in 2018 fisheries

UNITED STATES
Monday, November 11, 2019

A new report on seafood jobs in Alaska notes that fishery harvest employment declined by 4.9 percent in 2018, erasing most of the gains seen a year earlier.

That total decline of about 407 average annual jobs brought the state’s overall employment in harvesting down to 7,924 posts, wrote state labor economist Joshua Warren in the November edition of Alaska Economic Trends, a publication of the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Salmon fisheries statewide lost 7.2 percent, or 328 jobs, over a year earlier, the major exception being Bristol Bay, where employment approached a decade high of 1,148, Warren said. Groundfish harvesting employment, which spiked a year earlier, dropped back to its previous level of about 1,195. Despite the 9.1 percent, or 120 job drop in groundfish jobs, 2018 total employment for that sector remained high relative to past years.

IN BRIEF - Salmon advocates take N.L. to court for stricter assessment of aquaculture

CANADA
Thursday, November 07, 2019

A group of fisheries and wildlife advocates were in St. John’s court Wednesday 6th of November 2019 asking for stricter environmental assessment of Newfoundland and Labrador’s expanding aquaculture industry.

The applicants say the province’s former environment minister acted unlawfully when he determined a proposed salmon hatchery project did not require further environmental assessment.

The proposed Indian Head hatchery in Stephenville would see more than 2 million salmon released into existing sea cages owned by Northern Harvest Sea Farms.

James Gunvaldsen Klaassen of the environmental law group Ecojustice argued in provincial Supreme Court that the minister’s decision was invalid because he did not consider what happens after the newly hatched fish are released into the cages.

IN BRIEF - Algal bloom in Norway and slowing supply growth in Chile to keep prices high

NORWAY
Thursday, November 07, 2019

Global harvests of farmed Atlantic salmon are expected to grow by around 4–5 percent in 2019. Norway, the world’s leading producer, started the year strongly while the Scottish sector is recovering volumes following a steep decline last year. However, higher production forecasts for 2019 made earlier in the year now seem too optimistic given the dual impact of the loss of approximately 8 million fish due to a severe algal bloom in Norway and reports of new fish health issues at farms in Chile. The more recent figure is comparable to growth rates observed in 2017 and 2018, continuing a relatively steady growth trend that is bringing some stability to the market.

Production in Norway was up year-on-year after the first quarter of 2019 and accelerated significantly in May as the arrival of the algal bloom in the north of the country prompted mass harvesting by farmers looking to save marketable fish. Although blooms have occurred before in Norway, this was reportedly the worst the country has seen in decades. The phenomenon, which can cause fish mortality through asphyxiation, occurs only when conditions are optimal but can be triggered by warming water temperatures. Total lost production, in terms of lost biomass converted to average harvested weight, amounted to some 40 000 tonnes with financial losses estimated at around NOK 2.2 billion (USD 225 million). In response, the Norwegian government will allow affected salmon farmers to apply for a fiveyear exemption from the capacity limitations connected to their salmon licenses.

VIET NAM

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.

KUALA LUMPUR - Sabah has recorded the highest number of fish bomb cases since 2014, which is 234 cases out of the total 239 cases nationwide so far, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.
