IN BRIEF - MEPA to monitor plastic usage of fishing trawlers

SRI LANKA
Thursday, December 12, 2019

Colombo - The Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA) has decided to monitor the plastic usage on single and multi-day fishing trawlers. Fishermen take 500 to 1000 1 litre bottles when they head out to sea. These steps are being taken to protect ocean life.

Attention has been drawn to only permit the carrying of 5-litre containers to the ocean. The plan is set to be put into action together with the help of the Sri Lanka Coast Guard.

IN BRIEF - Fishrot probe could take years – Kawana

NAMIBIA
Thursday, December 12, 2019

Acting fisheries minister Albert Kawana says the planned investigation into the fishing sector could take years to complete.

Kawana said people should not expect issues of maladministration, corruption and nepotism in the fishing sector to be fixed in a week, a month or a year, because some of the anomalies could require the government to amend the Marine Resources Act.

The acting minister explained at a media briefing on Monday that he was ordered by president Hage Geingob to investigate if there were any instances of maladministration, corruption and nepotism in the sector.

IN BRIEF - Brexiteer MEP's tirade leaves EU elite speechless 'When did you last speak to fishermen?'

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, December 12, 2019

A furious Brexiteer MEP has lashed out at the EU for destroying UK fisheries, claiming that many British fishermen wouldn’t be able to even buy Christmas gifts this year. MEP June Mummery took issue with the controversial EU Common Fisheries Policy - a common target for British fishermen who claim it has ruined their livelihood. Speaking at a debate at the EU's Fisheries Committee, Ms Mummery asked when was the last time any of the EU elite had bothered to speak to any fishermen face-to-face.

The MEP challenged the Fisheries Committee members to get out and "speak to the people" for themselves to better understand the state of the fishing industry.

The question silenced the room, as the Brexit Party MEP went on to outline how British waters had been left “without any fish” because of EU rules.

IN BRIEF - Iceland aquaculture exports triple

ICELAND
Wednesday, December 11, 2019

Figures for October this year, the most recent month for which statistics are available, show that the export value of farmed products of all types totalled 3.1 billion kroner (ISK) or GBP 19.6 million.

While the figures are still a long way short of the total that rivals Norway and Scotland sell overseas in an average month – and are likely to remain so – they show the country is moving up the fish farming league at an impressive rate.

Aquaculture exports were just a fraction of that figure five or six years ago.

If the current trend continues for the final two months of 2019, Iceland’s aquaculture exports are expected to reel in more than ISK 24 billion – or around GBP 152 million.

IN BRIEF - B.C. First Nation concerned Ottawa not doing enough to protect salmon stocks after Big Bar landslide

CANADA
Tuesday, December 10, 2019

High on the Chilcotin plateau in British Columbia’s Interior, the chief of a local First Nation says the traditional diet of its members is threatened by a landslide more than 150 kilometre away.

Tl’etinqox Chief Joe Alphonse, who also represents five other local nations as tribal chairman of the Tsilhqot’in National Government, says Fraser River tributaries once teeming with salmon have shown paltry returns since the Big Bar landslide was discovered in June.

“On a good year, you can run across the river on the backs of sockeye, that’s how thick our rivers are. And bright, bright, bright almost fluorescent orange colour, it’s an awesome sight,” he said.
