VIET NAM
Monday, September 23, 2019

KHÁNH HÒA – Nha Trang City has set aside a zone covering 70ha of surface water in Nha Trang Bay for cage aquaculture, according to the city’s People’s Committee.

Located in the south-central province of Khánh Hòa, the city will focus on cage farming on Trí Nguyên and Bích Ð?m islands and a 50ha water surface area between Bích Ð?m and Ð?m B?y islands in Nha Trang Bay.

Under an aquaculture plan to 2035 in the bay, approved by the city’s People’s Committee, there will be 100 floating rafts with 2,931 traditional cages in Trí Nguyên and 30 floating rafts with 1,125 traditional cages in Bích Ð?m by 2025.

IN BRIEF - Golden opportunity for fisheries research

UNITED STATES
Monday, September 23, 2019

When Dave Kjelstrup landed an internship with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department in the mid-1960s as a UND biology student, there wasn’t much for fish in Devils Lake.

As a student of John Owen, a renowned UND fisheries professor who retired in 1986, Kjelstrup spent three summers working out of the old University of North Dakota Biological Station on Creel Bay, where he learned the fisheries trade from veteran Game and Fish Department biologists such as Dale Henegar and Al Kreil.

Devils Lake in those days was more of a duck slough than a fishing destination, Kjelstrup says, but he and his Game and Fish mentors occasionally would trap perch out of reservoirs in northeastern North Dakota and stock them in Devils Lake.

IN BRIEF - Huon Aquaculture targets growth after difficult year

AUSTRALIA
Monday, September 23, 2019

Huon Aquaculture is positioned for a new growth phase after an eventful and sometimes very difficult year, chairman Neil Kearney says.

The Tasmanian-based salmon farmer's 2018-19 performance was hit by an extended run of warm temperatures affecting fish health and growth and moon jellyfish strike which killed some salmon and held back the growth of others.

"Whether farming on land or sea, the reality is that the environment exerts a significant influence over the capacity of any business to deliver growth in sales and earnings," Mr Kearney said in the company's annual report.

IN BRIEF - Nesvik demands action as salmon escapes double

NORWAY
Monday, September 23, 2019

The revelation, by the national broadcaster NRK, has sparked a major debate in Norway, with fishermen and environmentalists calling for action.

The country’s Directorate of Fisheries has admitted that the number of escapes has been rising year on year.

Last year, the figure was around 160,000, while in 2017 only 17,000 salmon escaped. Nesvik has expressed his concern at the rising numbers, but wants to hear from the industry what action it plans to take.

The communications manager of industry body Seafood Norway, Øyvind Andre Haram, agreed that the sector should have to pay when fish escape.

IN BRIEF - Tuvalu changes PM, adds to concerns over backing for Taiwan in Pacific

TAIWAN
Friday, September 20, 2019

Parliament in the tiny South Pacific country of Tuvalu elected a new prime minister on Thursday, making a change that analysts say could give China a chance to further undermine Taiwan in a region that has been a pillar of support.

The surprise change in Tuvalu has lengthened the shadow over Taiwan’s standing in the South Pacific after the Solomon Islands earlier this week cut diplomatic ties with Taiwan, leaving it holding formal relations with just 16 countries.

Having retained his seat at a general election earlier this month, Tuvalu’s pro-Taiwan leader Enele Sopoaga had been expected to keep the premiership, but the 16-person parliament instead selected Kausea Natano, whose position on Taiwan was not immediately known.

IN BRIEF - Alarm as fishing crafts and cages in Lake Victoria rises

KENYA
Friday, September 20, 2019

The number of fishing boats operating on the Kenyan side of Lake Victoria has increased from 14,365 in 2016 to 16,183 in 2019, a new study has revealed.

The number is the highest recorded since the year 2000, sparking concerns about the sustainability of current fishing activities in the lake.

The increase in the number of fishing boats was recorded across all the counties that border the lake. Also on the rise is the number of fish cages set up in the lake.

IN BRIEF - Cambodia to curb recruitment fees in bid to protect migrants from slavery abroad

CAMBODIA
Friday, September 20, 2019

PHNOM PENN - Cambodia is planning to cap hefty recruitment fees imposed by labor brokers on people seeking jobs abroad in a bid to curb illegal migration and protect workers from modern-day slavery.

More than two million Cambodians are estimated to be living and working abroad - most of them in Thailand - where hundreds of thousands of migrant workers are undocumented due to the high costs and therefore vulnerable to labor abuses, activists say.

Cambodians who migrate to Thailand through official channels pay recruitment agencies about USD 650 to facilitate the move, while those who make their own way across the border spend as little as USD 30, said advocacy group the Mekong Migration Network.

IN BRIEF - Seabridge joins study of metals on fish

CANADA
Friday, September 20, 2019

Metal pollution from mines, mills and smelters is a hotly contested issue, especially when water passing through contaminated sites leaches metals into local waterways. The issue has become a major aggravation between miners and Indigenous peoples along many Canadian lakes and rivers.

Now Seabridge Gold of Toronto and the Gitanyow Fisheries Authority (GFA) are collaborating on a project applying ‘omic’ approaches to learn more about the impact of heavy metals on aquatic ecosystems. This method will apply environmental DNA (eDNA) to the potential effects of Seabridge’s proposed KSM copper-gold mine 65 km northwest of Stewart, British Columbia.

The project is funded by Genome BC and GFA, under the leadership of Dr. Vicki Marlatt at Simon Fraser University. The team will develop and implement eDNA methods to detect the presence or absence of fish species in the Nass watershed. They will also examine the costs of using eDNA compared to traditional, labour intensive visual or fish trapping surveys.
