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.
YORK COUNTY - A group of citizens who have been working to ensure continued access to Maine’s oceans has formed a new coalition Protect Maine’s Fishing Heritage.
The group has been active in advocating for lobstermen who are losing acres of fishing grounds to aquaculture leases in some parts of the state. The organization also supports Maine residents who are concerned about losing access to the ocean for recreational usage.
Currently, the Department of Marine Resources grants 99 percent of all licenses and leases for aquaculture in Maine waters.

Iceland’s Food Agency, known as MAST, has told Fjarðalax ehf, owned by SalMar subsidiary Arnarlax, it can proceed with its intention to farm up to 10,000 tonnes of salmon at Patreksfjörður and Tálknafjörður, two coastal communities in the far north west of the country.
MAST has also granted Arctic Sea Farm permission to go ahead with its plan to farm up 6,800 tonnes of salmon in the same two communities.
The Food agency said it had carried out its own environmental assessment and taken into account a risk assessment carried out by the Marine Research Institute.
Scientists with the Strategic Salmon Health Initiative (SSHI) have discovered three new viruses in chinook, sockeye and farmed salmon in B.C.
One of the viruses was hitherto not known to infect fish, according to the study, published in the journal eLIFe.
The extent to which the viruses may have an impact on fish health is not yet known.
“The discovery in dead and dying farmed salmon of previously unrecognized viruses that are also widely distributed in wild salmon, emphasizes the potential role that viral disease may play in the population dynamics of wild fish stocks, and the threat that these viruses may pose to aquaculture,” the study finds.
A raft of environmental bodies have welcomed a European Commission proposal for stricter limits on Baltic Sea fishing.
The Commission’s proposed total allowable catch (TAC) for Baltic Sea fishing in 2020 falls largely in line with scientific advice on limits which will maintain fish stocks; though TACs remain higher than scientists’ recommendations for salmon, Western herring and Eastern Baltic cod, which is subject to an emergency fishing ban until the end of 2019.
The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation’s Senior Advisor Tapani Veistola said: “The scientific advice on main basin Baltic salmon clearly states that commercial landings should be 58,900 salmon. The Commission proposal of 86,575 salmon is not in line with that advice. Ministers at the October Council should follow the scientific advice on Baltic salmon, not the Commission proposal…With some Baltic stocks in crisis, the Common Fisheries Policy deadline of 2020 for stocks to be managed sustainably and in the midst of a biodiversity and climate emergency, decisions taken during Finland’s presidencies of the EU and BALTFISH [the Baltic Sea Fisheries Forum] will be crucial.”
Now the shuffling begins at Alaska fisheries offices around the state as the impacts from back and forth veto volleys become more clear.
For the commercial fisheries division of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, an USD 85 million budget, about half of which is from state general funds, reflects a USD 997,000 cut for FY 2020. Where and how the cuts will play out across Alaska’s far-flung coastal regions is now being decided by fishery managers.
“Now that the salmon season is about over we’re taking a good close look at this and what we’re going to put in the water next season. We’ve been assured we can look at our commfish budget in total and reduce the lowest priority projects,” said Doug Vincent-Lang, Fish and Game commissioner.
