IN BRIEF - Scottish political parties ‘united behind salmon sector’

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Fergus Ewing, Scotland’s Rural Economy minister, said the upshot of the committee investigations into the further growth of salmon farming was that all parties ‘together united in support behind the industry’.

The inquiries were prompted by a petition from the wild salmon lobby which wants to curb the expansion of salmon farming, which employs 12,000 people across Scotland.

Ewing pointed out to the audience, which included Scottish salmon farmers and suppliers from Norway and Sweden as well as Scotland, that the sector was still very young.

IN BRIEF - Minced fish prices soar amid increased demand abroad

JAPAN
Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Prices of imported minced fish products -- ingredients of fishcakes used in popular oden hot pot dishes in Japan -- have been soaring due to increased demand in Europe, the United States and China as well as rising logistics and personnel costs, according to Finance Ministry trade data.

The import price of minced Alaska pollock, a mainstay ingredient for fishcakes, has been on the rise since around the spring of 2017 and stood at 401 yen per kilogram in June this year, marking a 30 percent increase from two years before.

IN BRIEF - Off the hook: California king salmon rebounds after drought

UNITED STATES
Friday, August 23, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — Trolling off the California coast, Sarah Bates leans over the side of her boat and pulls out a long, silvery fish prized by anglers and seafood lovers: wild king salmon.

Reeling in a fish "feels good every time," but this year has been surprisingly good, said Bates, a commercial troller based in San Francisco.

Bates and other California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in years, thanks to heavy rain and snow that ended the state's historic drought.

IN BRIEF - Coalition Warships Attack Fishing Boats

YEMEN
Friday, August 23, 2019

Beirut – Saudi-led coalition naval forces have carried out at least five deadly attacks on Yemeni fishing boats since 2018, Human Rights Watch said today. Coalition warships and helicopters have been involved in attacks that killed at least 47 Yemeni fishermen, including 7 children, and the detention of more than 100 others, some of whom were tortured in custody in Saudi Arabia.

The coalition attacks on fishermen and fishing boats appear to be deliberate attacks on civilians and civilian objects in violation of the laws of war. Coalition officials who ordered or carried out the attacks or tortured detainees are most likely responsible for war crimes.

“Coalition naval forces repeatedly attacked Yemeni fishing boats and Yemeni fishermen without any apparent determination that they were valid military targets,” said Priyanka Motaparthy, acting emergencies director at Human Rights Watch. “Gunning down fishermen waving white cloths or leaving shipwrecked crew members to drown are war crimes.”

IN BRIEF - No-deal Brexit can make our fisheries world leaders

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, August 23, 2019

HAT will happen to our fisheries if we reach 31 October with no deal? At one second past midnight EU time, control – or ‘competence’ in EU jargon – is automatically returned from Brussels to Westminster. This includes control of our nation’s marine resource in our Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 200 nautical miles from the shoreline (or the median point where the sea is less than 400 nautical miles wide). It then becomes the responsibility of Members of Parliament, who are under no obligation as to how they, through the Government, manage that resource apart from honouring our obligations to follow the guidelines of International Law under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

On 1 November, therefore, Westminster is in full control. There can be no excuses, no ifs or buts, or following party lines. Every individual MP is now responsible for this competency. This should be a really positive change but there is a problem. Our Parliament has shown that it can’t be trusted. It contains some members who have made remaining in the EU their principal objective. We will be starting with a clean sheet. Yet it is people like Dominic Grieve who will be in charge. The responsibility for turning fisheries into either a real Brexit success story or a complete failure rests entirely with Westminster. Will the Remainers wreck this one and only opportunity to rejuvenate our coastal communities and to become world fishery leaders in management environmentally? We will soon find out.

IN BRIEF - Illegal abalone dealers pay the heavy price for breaking fishing laws

AUSTRALIA
Friday, August 23, 2019

A police traffic stop in Morley a year and a half ago has resulted in one man being ordered to pay more than AUD 9,700 and another more than AUD 7,700 for illegally dealing in abalone.

Police handed the case over to Fisheries and Marine Officers from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, when they found a large amount of abalone on the back seat of the vehicle the men were in.

After the Police officers contacted the department, the 109 abalone were seized by Fisheries officers, who charged the men with offences related to dealing in abalone.
