IN BRIEF - Aquaculture Market Players Focusing on Better Nutrition & Feeding Technologies for Enhanced Yield

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 03, 2019

The urging need for innovative solutions in food production has led the widespread penetration of precision farming concepts, which rely on technologies such as drones, IoT connectivity, and autonomous tractors. A sister industry that is equally imperative for the global food security and less permeated by technological advances is ‘aquaculture’. However, recent surge in the popularity and acceptance of data-driven management platforms, which integrate data from myriad sources into unified cloud platform, and encapsulate complete dynamics of the aquaculture farm environment in real time, will favor growth of the aquaculture market.

TMR’s research finds that the aquaculture market was valued at over USD 750 Mn in 2018, and is estimated to record a 2.4% Y-o-Y growth in 2019. Aquaculture remains a profitable business for not only combating the global food demand, but also helping rehabilitate the oceans. Leading operators in the aquaculture market continue to leverage the viability of three key areas, namely, seaweed & bivalve aquaculture systems, offshore aquaculture systems, and on-land aquaculture systems. The study opines that the fish industry will witness a radical transformation in the foreseeable future; and with the depletion in ocean’s fisheries vis-à-vis rising demand from the global demographic, aquaculture continues to forestall challenges entailed by these and bring more farmed fishes to plates globally.

IN BRIEF - 2 Wolastoqey bands sue federal government over access to snow crab fishery

CANADA
Wednesday, July 03, 2019

Two First Nations in New Brunswick have filed a lawsuit against the Canadian government over access to the lucrative commercial snow crab fishery.

Tobique and Madawaska First Nations are seeking permanent access to snow crab fishing and damages for lost revenues dating back to 1995, when they began requesting a commercial allocation in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. 

The only year the bands got an allocation was 2017, when the quota was higher than average. The quota was raised again this year, but the two Wolastoqey bands did not get an allocation.

THAILAND
Tuesday, July 02, 2019

A political party set to form part of Thailand’s new coalition government vowed on Friday to relax laws governing the country’s multi-billion dollar fishing industry, a move labour activists warned could increase exploitation and abuse of workers.

The leader of the Democrat Party made the pledge as they met fishing vessel owners at an industry gathering in Samut Sakhon province to discuss illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.

“We will urgently amend the law and other regulations,” said Jurin Laksanawisit, who is seen as a frontrunner to be deputy prime minister and commerce minister under Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha.

UNITED STATES

A new state bill plans to expand the shellfish industry along the Crystal Coast.

One of the provisions in Senate Bill 648 would create a pilot project on the Pamlico Sound. It would open up three large-scale oystering plants along public trust waters.

Supporters of the bill say it could even bring a thousand new jobs to the East.

“To me, it’s a wonderful opportunity for eastern North Carolina,” said Republican Senator Norman Sanderson. “Our goal is to make this a 100 million dollar a year industry. We have all of the necessary ingredients to make this work.”
