IN BRIEF - NZ King Salmon faces local opposition in attempt to add pens to Pelorus Sound farm

NEW ZEALAND
Thursday, November 28, 2019

A decision on whether to add four pens to an existing salmon farm in the Marlborough Sounds has faced strong opposition.

Hearings were held in front of a commissioner in Blenheim this week, to determine whether New Zealand King Salmon could add the net pens, along with anchors and surface floats, to the Waitata Reach salmon farm in the outer Pelorus Sound / Te Hoiere.

Community groups raised concerns about the effects on the seabed and king shag seabirds. They also wanted more information about how many fish had been dying at the farm.

IN BRIEF - Damage to the Italian fishing industry due to severe weather

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, November 28, 2019

In recent weeks, repeated episodes of bad weather have swept across Italy and its islands, causing serious damage to its fishing industry.

From an initial survey of the fishing fleets affected, it is estimated that the losses in just one week - between lost earnings and problems affecting fishing and aquaculture facilities - amount to EUR 60 million. The figure could increase if account is taken of the number of fishing days lost (1 fishing boat out of 3 had to remain in port), the silted up ports and damage to boat hulls.

It is small-scale fishing that has borne the brunt of the damage, especially on the north Adriatic coast, where clam fishing has also been heavily damaged.

IN BRIEF - Study identifies climate change threat to fish diversity in Murray-Darling Basin

AUSTRALIA
Thursday, November 28, 2019

Native freshwater fish diversity in the Murray-Darling Basin could be under serious threat from climate change in coming decades, a new study has found. This loss of biodiversity could result in a further decline in the health of the Basin.

The study, which has been published in PLOS ONE, was co-led by Griffith University researcher Associate Professor Mark Kennard from the Australian Rivers Institute and visiting Brazilian PhD student Anielly Oliveira.

Also involved were Brazilian collaborators from the State University of Maringa, the Federal University of Goias and the Federal University of Technology Parana, as well as Australian collaborators from La Trobe University and the NSW Department of Fisheries.

IN BRIEF - Aquaculture Market Expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027

UNITED STATES
Thursday, November 28, 2019

The North America Aquaculture market is accounted to US$ 6,432.8 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account to US$ 9,685.1 Mn by 2027.

The US is dominating the North America aquaculture market, followed by Canada. The demand for aquaculture is growing in the US, owing to increased consumer awareness related to health benefits associated with the seafood. Aquaculture has high protein content due to which it is gaining more acceptance by a larger customer base. The shift in consumer lifestyle along with inclination towards healthy food products, is also expected the growth of the market across the US. The manufacturers in the region are focusing more towards innovation and development to boost the growth of North America aquaculture market.

IN BRIEF - Fish genetic practices defended

UNITED STATES
Thursday, November 28, 2019

Critics of hatchery-raised fish claim the hatchery-rearing process affects fish genetics negatively, but Pahsimeroi Fish Hatchery Manager Doug Engemann said it’s more complicated.

At an Oct. 22 2019 panel discussion, Trout Unlimited scientist Helen Neville said raising fish in hatcheries isn’t a viable option to replace decreasing numbers of salmon in the Salmon River. She said the domestication process affects the DNA of fish because being raised in a tank adds natural selection pressures not seen in a natural environment.

Engemann, who has been with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game for 32 years, said these pressures can affect fish, but they affect some fish more than others.

IN BRIEF - PAFCO clarifies reduced operations and Bumble Bee’s bankruptcy

FIJI
Tuesday, November 26, 2019

The Pacific Fishing Company has today clarified that operations in Levuka have been reduced to a four-day working week with the challenge of albacore tuna supply affecting operations.

PAFCO’s Chair Ikbal Jannif says there is a worldwide shortage of albacore tuna which has seen their supply go from 23 thousand metric tons down to only 16 point five thousand metric tons this year.

As a result, PAFCO’s 600 full-time staff have over the last two months been earning only eighty percent of what they would normally take home because of the reduced working week.

IN BRIEF - BBC says sorry for salmon sector bias

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, November 26, 2019

The head of news at BBC Radio 5 Live, Jonathan Crawford, issued an apology after the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) complained about Campbell’s broadcast earlier in November 2019.

In two programmes, Your Call, which he presented on November 6, and then on 5 Live Breakfast the following day, he claimed the Scottish salmon sector was ‘highly polluting and unregulated’. He also claimed farms were ‘terrible for the environment’.

The SSPO refuted the claims by Campbell as wrong, misleading and factually inaccurate, and argued that he had breached the BBC’s editorial guidelines, both in terms of accuracy and impartiality.

IN BRIEF - Lower catches for Pacific halibut are in the forecast for 2020

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Lower catches for halibut appear to be in the forecast for 2020 and beyond.

At the International Pacific Halibut Commission meeting on Monday in Seattle, lead scientist Ian Stewart summarized the outlook for commercial fisheries from Northern California and British Columbia to the Bering Sea.

“In short, the model survey trends as you’ve seen from the previous presentations are down both in numbers and weight per unit of effort. And what we’ve seen from the commercial fishery’s CPUE (catch per unit of effort) is we have mixed trends, however relatively flat at the coast wide levels with some brighter spots and some not so good spots across the coast.”

IN BRIEF - Salmon diseases hit Iceland and Norway

ICELAND
Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Food safety and marine health organisations in Norway and Iceland are this week battling with suspected salmon related diseases on at least three fronts.

They involve ISA or infectious salmon anaemia at two sites in Norway and a confirmed case of IPA or the viral disease known as infectious pancreatic necrosis in Iceland.

This is thought to be the first time that IPA has been found at a salmon farm in Iceland, although it has affected halibut in the past.

The virus, which can be fatal to fish, was reported at a Laxa freshwater aquaculture site in Reydarfjordur.
