IN BRIEF - Hurricane blows a hole in Chilean salmon exports

Tuesday, September 03, 2019

The slow-moving, category five Dorian - the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane on record - is bringing sustained winds of up to 165mph and may cause a storm surge of up to 23 feet (7 metres), damaging or destroying thousands of homes.

The BBC, Dorian is forecast to make a gradual turn north or north-west, taking it along the eastern US seaboard, making its landfall point, if any, uncertain.

According to the US National Hurricane Centre it will slowly weaken but remain a powerful hurricane during the next couple of days and would “move dangerously close to the Florida east coast” on Monday night through to Wednesday evening.

IN BRIEF - August 2019's export of fisheries to Bangladesh via border totals over USD 700,000

Tuesday, September 03, 2019

Myanmar exports freshwater fish, various kinds of dried fish and ginger to Bangladesh through Maungdaw border trade and the value of export in August reached over USD 700,000, according to the Directorate of Maungdaw Border Trade Camp. 

Meanwhile, import value of last month amounted to USD 2,000. 

"In August trade value amounted to USD 0.739 million. Major export items are wet ginger, chickpea and fishes such as carp and various kinds of dried fish. In late August, commodity flow decreased. Due to poor road transport, we had to export in small cars. We could not use cold storage cars and trucks. If road transport is better, we will have regular trade," said Tha Tun Sein, camp in charge.

IN BRIEF - Lab mistake leads to mass salmon slaughter

Monday, September 02, 2019

A WRONG  diagnosis by Norway’s Veterinary Authority  has led to  the unnecessary slaughter of thousands of salmon at a fish farm near Trondheim, it has been revealed.

Early last month a team from the authority thought it detected a form of pancreatic disease known as PD virus at a Måsøval owned farm at the community of Kattholmen which contained more than 700,000 salmon.  The Food Safety Authority immediately ordered the slaughter of the fish to prevent the infection from spreading.

But days into the operation it was discovered that the diagnosis was a mistake and the slaughter was stopped. It is estimated that up to 500,000 fish may have been  destroyed before the error was spotted.

IN BRIEF - Fish being dumped at sea despite EU rules

Monday, September 02, 2019

Unwanted fish are being dumped back into the sea despite new EU laws designed to stop waste, an investigation has found.

Under the recently established laws, fishermen are no longer supposed to "discard" fish when they catch more than their quota allows.

The campaign was brought to the fore by celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, who argued that the EU's quota system meant fishermen were compelled to discard fish that were too young, overfished or species for which they did not have a quota.Unwanted fish are being dumped back into the sea despite new EU laws designed to stop waste, an investigation has found.

IN BRIEF - Delicate ecosystem of fishing industry must be maintained

Monday, September 02, 2019

Fishermen aboard Shetland’s large pelagic vessels, which catch mackerel and herring, report sightings of killer whales almost every time they haul in their nets.

These magnificent mammals are rightly revered for their intelligence and speed, characteristics that allow them to feed on the fish that get away. I guess it makes a change from hunting seals.

Much like the Orcas, the pelagic men are the big beasts of the fishing industry, catching and landing large volumes of high-value fish in vessels that they have invested scores of millions of pounds in to keep them safe in wild winter seas that have of the type that the history books tell us thcclaimed the lives of too many fishermen.

IN BRIEF - Shellfish and seaweed farms are a growing industry in Alaska

Thursday, August 29, 2019

Underwater and out of sight are the makings of a major Alaska industry with two anchor crops that clean the planet while pumping out lots of cash: shellfish and seaweed.

Alaskans have applied for over 2,000 acres of new or expanding undersea farms, double the footprint from two years ago, ranging from .02 acres at Halibut Cove to nearly 300 acres at Craig.

Nearly 60% of the newest applicants plan to grow kelp with the remainder a mix of kelp and/or Pacific oysters, said Cynthia Pring-Ham, aquatic farming coordinator at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, which issues the permits. Fish and Game partners with the state Department of Natural Resources, which leases the tidal and submerged lands for farms.
