A Scottish start-up using shellfish to slash plastic pollution has won a game-changing investment from the Scottish Investment Bank and Sky Ocean Ventures.
Biotech business CuanTec is to drive the “significant” cash boost into final formulas and pilot production of its biodegradable, compostable and biodegradable food wrap.
Made from biopolymers harvested from waste shells sourced from Scotland’s aquaculture industry, the sustainable product promises an ethical alternative to single-use plastics and, its makers hope, become a go-to item for both domestic and commercial kitchens worldwide.
Diadromous species use freshwater environment for reproduction and marine as a feeding area or vice versa. While some diadromous fish species (e.g. salmonids, eel) are famous around the globe and highly valued, others attract far less attention from policy-makers, scientists, or stakeholders but are likely to make crucial contributions to complex marine, transitional, and freshwater ecosystems.
Many diadromous fish species have threatened status and suffer from environmental degradation and human-induced changes, especially in reproduction areas. The main threats to diadromous fish include migration barriers (e.g. dams), river construction, local inputs to rivers, lagoons, and estuaries (pollution, eutrophication, acidification), habitat loss, and overfishing.
The latest publication in ICES Cooperative Research Reports series, CRR No.348 Data-limited diadromous species – review of European status, updates the status and distribution of selected species that have completely or partially diadromous populations.

The fisheries union wants an emergency meeting with the federal minister to talk about a fish we do not often hear much about.
Mackerel are plentiful off some areas of Newfoundland according to the FFAW, but it says federal science has not kept up with the changing times.
Union president Keith Sullivan says it’s a cyclical fish but DFO science is confined to larval studies off Cape Breton. He says that used to work okay, but in recent years harvesters have seen large amounts of mackerel off Newfoundland’s northeast coast and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

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.

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.
