IN BRIEF - Exploratory fishing vessel hopes to breathe new life into Nunatsiavut fisheries

CANADA
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

A new exploratory fishing vessel is looking to renew an old industry in Nain.

The Torngat I, which arrived in Nain just last week, is searching for scallop and whelk in northern waters this month.

"It's an idea to catch new species that haven't been caught in a while," said Bob Hardy, who is working as a fishing consultant for the Nunatsiavut government and Torngat Fishing Co-operative.

"It's an important project."

Hardy is working alongside some local fisherman to prove that there are viable fisheries outside of arctic char in North coast waters. This past week, they have been dropping buckets looking for whelk as well as dragging the sea floor looking for scallop, which was regularly fished for in the community until 2008 but was abandoned because of market conditions at the time.

IN BRIEF - Fukushima operator to be forced to dump radioactive waste into ocean - japanese minister

JAPAN
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

MOSCOW, Sept 10 -- The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, which in 2011 experienced the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, has no choice but to discharge a massive amount of radioactive waste into the sea since it currently has no technology for treating the contaminated water and no adequate space to store it any longer, Sputnik news agency quoted Japanese Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada as saying on Tuesday.

“We have no way but to release it (into the sea) and dilute it,” Harada said at a press briefing, as quoted by the Jiji Press.

More than a million tonnes of wastewater is currently stored in tanks at the Fukushima site, but the facility is reportedly running out of available space and expects to exhaust its capacity by summer 2022.

CANADA
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

On the water, being so close to nature, soothed his soul. “It’s absolutely beautiful. I even love a good storm. There’s only a few jobs that brings out the soul in you.”

But after more than 50 years working as a commercial fisherman, the Burnaby man hasn’t seen a salmon season as grim as this year’s.

Sananin, 70, who holds a license for the area that includes the Fraser River to the west coast of Vancouver Island, hasn’t been out on the water yet.

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

North Sea herring fishery draws to a close. The UK North Sea herring fishery is now drawing to a close with most vessels expected to have finished their quota by mid-September, says the Scottish Pelagic Processors Association.

Vessels are currently focusing their attention on grounds around the east of Orkney with top quality MSC certified herring being landed to Denholm Seafoods, Lunar and Northbay Pelagic in Peterhead, and Pelagia Shetland in Lerwick.

The majority of the herring is exported to Germany, with a small percentage going to the UK domestic market.

IN BRIEF - Vietnam becomes the world's fifth largest fish exporter

VIET NAM
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Hanoi - Vietnamese exports of fish and shellfish reached USD 5.52 billion in the first eight months of the year, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development reported on Saturday.

That quantity is slightly higher than the same period in 2018, thus confirming the country as the leading exporter in South-East Asia, second in Asia and fifth in the world.

The accumulated annual income was rounded off with the income received in August (more than USD 830 million). Until the end of that month, the main recipients were the United States, Japan, China and South Korea, which accounted for almost 57 percent of purchases.

IN BRIEF - State seafood industry 'torn apart' by government's green agenda

AUSTRALIA
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Queensland's commercial fishing industry is in danger of becoming a cottage industry and consumers are looking down the barrel of local seafood being replaced by imported product, according to the Queensland Seafood Industry Association.

New fishing regulations came into force at the start of September that build on changes to the Fisheries Act that took effect in May.

As a result, the seafood industry's peak body says their industry and the multi-generational families that earn their living from it have been torn apart by the political agenda of the state government.

After 100 years of involvement in all aspects of commercial fisheries management and consultation, QSIA president Keith Harris said they were now being excluded and ignored in matters that affect every part of their lives.

IN BRIEF - Seafood will get more attention in development of new U.S. dietary guidelines

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Federal agencies are meeting through next March to define U.S. dietary guidelines for 2020-25, and a high-powered group of doctors and nutritionists is making sure the health benefits of seafood are front and center.

For the first time in the 40-year history of the program, the dietary guidelines committee has posted the questions it is going to consider. They include the role of seafood in the neurocognitive development in pregnant moms for their babies, and in the diet of kids from birth to 24 months directly, said Dr. Tom Brenna, professor of pediatrics and nutrition at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas.

“We really got jazzed when we saw that because we wanted to figure out what the committee would find when it does its literature search on what medical evidence is out there and boy, did we find a lot,” Brenna said.
