IN BRIEF - Fisheries and Oceans Canada seize hundreds of illegal and ghost trap

Thursday, February 02, 2023

Crews from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) have spent the past week collecting illegal traps and fishing gear near White Rock, B.C.

According to officials, around 60 illegal traps have been seized each day over the course of the five-day operation in Boundary Bay.

Crews collect the traps using a line and grapple hook, which is thrown over the side of a patrol boat, then dragged across the ocean floor.

They’re looking for both traps that were intentionally placed in the ocean illegally as well as traps that have been abandoned but are still active, which is referred to as “ghost gear.”

IN BRIEF - Tsukiji Outer Market, bustling like never before

Friday, March 31, 2023

The Tsukiji Outer Market in Chuo Ward, Tokyo is bustling like never before. Since the end of last year, the number of people, mainly inbound (visitors to Japan), has continued to increase.

The outer market, which is lined with many fresh fish shops and restaurants, has continued to operate even after the Tsukiji Market moved to Toyosu in Koto Ward in 2018, but it was temporarily quiet due to the new coronavirus.  Many shops went out of business.

However, due to the relaxation of border measures and the weak yen, the number of tourists, mainly inbound tourists, has increased sharply since around December last year. Long lines have formed at popular tamagoyaki, sushi, sashimi and ramen restaurants.

IN BRIEF - Poole Harbour oil spill could have serious consequences for threatened migratory salmon

Friday, March 31, 2023

UK wide conservation organisation the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), has highlighted it’s serious concerns over the impact of the 200-barrel fluid leak into Poole Harbour on protected migratory fish. The GWCT operates the Salmon & Trout Research Centre on the River Frome at East Stoke, Dorset which has been monitoring the salmon population in depth for 50 years.

A major incident was declared on Sunday 26 March 2023, when a leak occurred at a pipeline operated by gas company Perenco.

The leak coincides with the start of the sea-bound migration of vulnerable young Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and sea trout (Salmo trutta), known as smolts, from the Rivers Frome and Piddle which flow directly through Poole Harbour. The young salmon and trout hatch from eggs laid by adults in the river, where they spend between 1 – 3 years before migrating to sea from March to mid-May. Here they will feed and grow for a further 1 – 3 years before returning to the river of their birth to reproduce.

IN BRIEF - World Shipping Council Responds to Ocean Shipping Antitrust Enforcement Act: Why?

Friday, March 31, 2023

The World Shipping Council (WSC) has voiced its opposition to the bipartisan Ocean Shipping Antitrust Enforcement Act, introduced this week by U.S. Representatives Jim Costa (CA-21), Dusty Johnson (SD-AL), John Garamendi (CA-08), Josh Harder (CA-09) and Jimmy Panetta (CA-19).

The proposed legislation aims to repeal the exemption for foreign ocean carriers from federal antitrust laws and address unfair practices affecting American businesses and consumers.

According to a U.S. Department of Transportation report, the top 10 foreign-based ocean carriers, operating foreign-flagged vessels, control over 80% of the shipping market. The new act would apply antitrust laws to these carriers, allowing the U.S. to address unfair trade practices, such as unjustified rate increases, excessive fees, and unexplained schedule changes.
