Other Media | SeafoodSource: Indonesian handline tuna fishery recognized as sustainable by MSC, Fair Trade

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

A small-scale Indonesian fishery has become the first in the world to achieve certification from both the Marine Stewardship Council and Fair Trade.

The North Buru and Maluku Fair Trade Fishing Association tuna fishery, which operates using one- or two-man boats to catch yellowfin tuna using hooks and lines, is now certified to MSC’s Fisheries Standard. It is the first handline yellowfin tuna fishery in the world to be recognized under the MSC program, and the second fishery in Indonesia to earn such a certification distinction.

The Buru, Maluku Province-based fishery has been involved in a fishery improvement project (FIP) since April 2013. In October 2014, the fishery was certified under the Fair Trade USA Capture Fisheries Standard, and its crew of 123 fishers were organized in nine Fair Trade associations.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Brexit uncertainty on top on coronavirus still a concern for salmon processors

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Brexit uncertainty on top on coronavirus spells trouble.

The Scottish comedian Limmy put it well. “WE’VE LEFT THE BREXIT IN THE OVEN!,” he tweeted. Jokes aside, the UK is still determined to leave the EU and with that comes the end of freedom of movement.

Now Brexit is back, warming on the kitchen table at least. On Monday, a new law to introduce a new post-Brexit immigration system for the UK was given initial approval by MPs, reported the BBC.

In January, SalmonBusiness reported that Home Secretary Priti Patel announced that the UK will not introduce a general low-skilled or temporary work route. Instead, a “points-based” immigration system which will be adapted in favour of those with higher skills.

IN BRIEF - For the Guinness World Records: The most expensive fish feed in history has been seized

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Myanmar police say they have seized a huge haul of liquid fentanyl, the first time one of the dangerous synthetic opioids that have ravaged North America has been found in Asia’s Golden Triangle drug-producing region.

In a signal that Asia’s drug syndicates have moved into the lucrative opioid market, more than 3,700 liters of methylfentanyl was discovered by anti-narcotics police near Loikan village in Shan State in northeast Myanmar.

The seizure of the fentanyl derivative was part of Asia’s biggest-ever interception of illicit drugs, precursors and drug-making equipment, including 193 million methamphetamine tablets known as yaba. At 17.5 metric tons, the yaba almost equaled the amount seized in the previous two years in Myanmar.

The U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said the scale of the bust was unprecedented and Myanmar’s anti-drug authorities had “dismantled a significant network” during a two-month operation involving police and military. Also seized were almost 163,000 liters and 35.5 metric tons of drug precursors, as well as weapons. There were more than 130 arrests.
