IN BRIEF - Norwegians probe rise in salmon escapes

NORWAY
Tuesday, October 01, 2019

Seafood Norway has called on its members to carry out a thorough investigation into why so many salmon have escaped from fish farms in 2019.

The latest figure of more than 280,000 escapes in 30 separate incidents is one of the highest for many years, and seafood minister Harald T Nesvik has bluntly told the industry it is time to get its house in order.

Now the organisation which represents both aquaculture and fishing companies has said it strongly regrets the high figure.

IN BRIEF - Oil market and European seafood exports the big concerns as Brexit looms

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, October 01, 2019

The countdown to Brexit is on, with the month of the UK’s withdrawal from Europe now upon us.

Issues have been highlighted by businesses since the referendum vote, and with the latest leave date now on the calendar, several key concerns remain.

With two of the six UK oil refineries on the South Humber Bank, one of the biggest issues should we face a No-Deal scenario is the unfair advantage it will grant to global producers.

Britain faces a 4.7 per cent tariff on fuel exports should we leave and face World Trade Organization rules, while the UK has established a 0 per cent import rate.

TAIWAN
Tuesday, October 01, 2019

A steel arch bridge over a bay in eastern Taiwan has collapsed with at least 11 people feared trapped or missing.

The vehicle and the road crossing on the 60ft-high bridge fell and crushed several boats in the fishing harbour below.

Footage posted on social media showed a large truck almost getting across the bridge before it tumbled backwards as the bridge collapsed into the water.

IN BRIEF - Study that showed most fish oil supplements don't measure up retracted

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

A University of Canterbury study that found there was often less omega 3s in most bottles of fish oil supplements than stated on the label has been retracted due to a miscalculation. 

The study, titled Are over-the-counter fish oil supplements safe, effective and accurate with labelling? Analysis of 10 New Zealand fish oil supplements, looked at the accuracy of product labels of the 10 most popular over-the-counter fish oil supplements.

As reported earlier today by Stuff, the paper originally found more than half the supplements weren't true to label in terms of dose and would be unlikely to live up to the health benefits claimed on the bottle.

IN BRIEF - Quebec First Nation challenging commercial lobster fishing limits

CANADA
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

LISTUGUJ, Que. — An Indigenous band in eastern Quebec is challenging the limits of its commercial fishing licence, saying the federal government should allow its members to sell lobster caught during its fall fishery in the Bay of Chaleur.

The Mi'kmaq community of Listuguj, on the Restigouche River near Cambellton, N.B., has the right to fish for lobster in the fall, but the catch can't be sold because it's supposed to be part of a sustainable food fishery — not a commercial enterprise.

The Listuguj band issued a statement Monday saying it plans to sell some of its catch to cover its costs.

"The fishery will be conducted without a licence ... but will be regulated by the community's own law and fishing plan," the band said in the statement that was aimed at getting the attention of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.

IN BRIEF - IPCC report on oceans predicts 'sweeping and severe' climate change

AUSTRALIA
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

For decades the world's oceans have been absorbing the extra heat that's come about through global warming, effectively limiting climate change, but in coming years the oceans will no longer protect us: warming waters will generate powerful storms that will swamp cities already threatened by rising sea levels, while marine heatwaves and creeping acidity will turn productive fisheries barren, creating food shortages.

Meanwhile, wildfires will sweep across the high tundra, and even ecosystems on the deep seafloor will change in composition.

Some of this is unavoidable, with a certain amount of global warming already locked in. But the coming century can be a lot less scary if we radically cut emissions within the next decade, according to the IPCC's latest report on climate change, released on Wednesday.

IN BRIEF - North Sea cod certification suspended by Marine Stewardship Council

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

North Sea cod is to lose its sustainability certification due to concerns about stock levels.

The Marine Stewardship Council said certificates for North Sea cod fisheries would be suspended as stocks were below the "safe biological level".

A "blue tick" had been awarded in 2017, meaning cod could be eaten "with a clear conscience".

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) said the suspension was "devastating" but that stock levels were "worrying".

IN BRIEF - The European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) trains Gambian fisheries inspectors

GAMBIA
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Twenty fisheries inspectors from the Republic of The Gambia received training in control techniques to fight and deter Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU).

The training ended with a practical exercise in the fishing port of Banjul, allowing fisheries inspectors from The Gambia to discover new methods of fisheries control and to become familiar with EFCA's e-learning platform.

The theoretical and practical training was organised in the framework of the PESCAO programme, financed and implemented since 2018 by the European Union.

IN BRIEF - Jellyfish thrive in the man-made disruption of the oceans

WORLDWIDE
Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Thousands of them plague our beaches to the horror of holidaymakers who dread their sting, but thanks to man’s disruption of the oceans, jellyfish are thriving.

Jellyfish have been on Earth longer than we have — they are believed to have roamed the oceans for nearly 600 million years.

But human activity, from over-fishing to plastic waste and climate change, has created an environment in which they are even more at home.

The proliferation of the jellyfish could lead to what some observers are calling the “jellyfication” of the oceans, which are facing profound changes according to a draft UN report due out on Wednesday.
