Killing up to 200,000 people annually, schistosomiasis is one of the most deadly parasitic diseases in the world, second only to malaria. Soon, however, prawn aquaculture could be used to control the snails that spread it – and to provide revenue for people in developing nations.
Freshwater river prawns are already widely grown as food, starting out in hatcheries and then being transferred to pens in waterways as they mature. Additionally, scientists already know that the crustaceans feed ravenously on the snails which temporarily host the "blood fluke" parasites which cause schistosomiasis.
Recently, an international research project led by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, looked at the relationship between these two factors. More specifically, the scientists wanted to know if local-scale prawn aquaculture could have an appreciable effect on snail populations. What they found was indeed promising.

Academics and experts at a post-rally discussion said best aquaculture practice can boost safe fish production and its export abroad.
They also viewed that adequate measures need to be taken to bring all the fish growers, traders, feed manufactures, sellers and others concerned under necessary training to enhance their awareness in this field.

GREENVILLE - A fishing captain has pleaded guilty to throwing away fish to prevent the Coast Guard from seizing it.
Federal prosecutors say in a Tuesday news release that 51-year-old William Juel of South Carolina pleaded guilty to disposing of illegally caught fish.
Authorities say the Coast Guard approached his boat and boarded it in November 2017. The release says Coast Guard investigators videotaped Juel throwing fish overboard to prevent them from seizing the catch. Court documents say he was in the jurisdiction of North Carolina-based federal prosecutors.
Prosecutors say the illegal catch included a type of grouper closed to fishing because quotas had been met that year.
Seventeen years ago, leaders of the shrimp industry from across the country’s southern coastline came together in response to what they saw as an immediate threat to the continued existence of the commercial fishery. Volunteering their time, their money, and their reputations, these industry veterans built a national response to the challenges facing shrimpers throughout the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico.
Miss Elaine was a founding Director of the Southern Shrimp Alliance and served two terms as the President of this organization. She was also a founding Director and the first President of Wild American Shrimp, Inc., the shrimp industry’s first national marketing initiative. Miss Elaine served the industry in a broad range of capacities, spending several terms as the Vice-President and Secretary of the Georgia Shrimp Association, acting as part of the National Sea Grant Review Board for two terms while also participating for many years on the National Sea Grant Assessment Team, and serving as a member of the South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council for three consecutive terms, two of them as Council Chair.
BELMOPAN – Eighteen border control officers from seven member States of the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM) are undergoing a four-week training course in Fisheries Prosecution and Interdiction, organized by the Barbados-based Regional Security System (RSS) in collaboration with the CRFM Secretariat, the government of Barbados, and the British Royal Navy’s Fisheries Protection Squadron.
The training, being held at the Paragon Base of the Barbados Defense Force, brings together officers of the Antigua and Barbuda Defense Force Coast Guard; Antigua and Barbuda Fisheries Division; Barbados Coast Guard; Royal Barbados Police Force Marine Unit; Barbados Fisheries Division; Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force; Royal Grenada Police Force Marine Unit; the St. Kitts-Nevis Defense Force Coast Guard; Royal Saint Lucia Police Force Marine Unit; and the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force Coast Guard.
Last month, June 2019, the Indian government created its first ministry for fisheries. Although it clubs fishing together, rather oddly, with animal husbandry and dairy, the move fulfills a long-standing demand of the country’s fishing community and becomes the latest, and potentially the most important, of India’s slowly growing efforts to better regulate and manage its fisheries.
Fishing has transformed over the decades from a small-scale artisanal practice into an increasingly industrialised sector. The widespread adoption of mechanised boats helped hike India’s fish catch from an estimated 0.53 million metric tons in 1950 to 3.83 million metric tons in 2017.
Until recently, this growth was largely unregulated, leading to over-capacity of fishing boats, inter-state conflict and overfishing of some species. But as yields have slowed in the past decade, including an unexpected crash in the sardine catch, India’s coastal states have begun to take measures to make fishing more sustainable. Some are also pressing for better national regulation.
Jakarta - The Indonesian Maritime Affairs and and Fisheries Ministry (KKP) is committed to reducing marine plastic debris by limiting singe-use plastics in fishing ports.
"The regulation has been made. We have selected plastics in fishing ports managed by the KKP, and we have put them into trash bins and plastic waste treatment devices," Bramantya Satya Murti, director general for maritime spatial management of the ministry, said on the sidelines of the Plastic Waste Parade event held here on Sunday.
To reduce plastic use, the ministry has set up plants to produce flake ice that could be put into cool boxes for fishermen.
The Quota Management System has short-changed fish, mana whenua and the public since it was established in 1986.
The system was set up with the quota owners having to pay resource rentals. This only lasted a few years. For the past 30 years the commercial fishing industry has not paid for the use of these publicly-owned resources.
"Incredibly, we gave away most of our fisheries at no charge," said LegaSea spokesman Scott Macindoe.
