IN BRIEF - Extreme draining of reservoir aids young salmon and eliminates invasive fish

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

A new study finds that the low-cost, extreme draining of a reservoir in Oregon aided downstream migration of juvenile chinook salmon -- and led to the gradual disappearance of two species of predatory invasive fish in the artificial lake.

The study is published in the journal Ecohydrology.

The elimination of largemouth bass and crappie from Fall Creek Reservoir, about 30 miles southeast of Eugene in in the Willamette River basin, could have management implications for reservoirs that have been invaded by certain species of fish that eat other fish, according to Christina Murphy, a recent Oregon State University doctoral graduate and lead author on the study.

IN BRIEF - Fish inflation hits Young’s profits

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

The Grimsby based business today reported second quarter (January 1 to March 30) turnover of GBP 134.2 million, down by just over GBP 2 million on the same period 2018.

The EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) slumped from GBP 5.5 million 12 months ago to GBP 4 million 2019.

Young’s CEO Bill Showalter referred briefly to the ‘challenges associated with raw material inflation’,

There is no doubt that the cost of principal species such as cod, haddock and salmon have risen sharply over the past 12 months, placing pressure on all UK seafood processors.

IN BRIEF - How salmon farming can scale up sustainably

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

FEW parts of Scotland’s economy have attracted more interest over the last couple of years than aquaculture – particularly its largest constituent, salmon farming. In the past six months alone, it has been the subject of new environmental regulations, reports from ScottishParliament committees, and a subsequent parliamentary debate, and a BBC Panorama report.

Such a level of inquiry and debate is to be welcomed – if anything, it underlines the increasingly important role that aquaculture is playing in Scotland. Indeed, the sector’s latent potential was highlighted by a recent report from Highlands and Islands Enterprise, which found that the marine economy could be worth as much GBP 5 billion by 2035.

IN BRIEF - Bangladesh’s Fishing Ban Leaves Coastal Towns in ‘Nightmare Situation’

BANGLADESH
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

DHAKA, Bangladesh — This time of year, Mohammad Shamsuddin normally earns about USD 120 a month working with the crew of a fishing boat off the coast of Bangladesh.

But on Monday, the central government imposed a 65-day national ban on coastal fishing — the most restrictive ever in Bangladesh, a poor and densely populated country where fish play a central role in the economy and diet.

Mr. Shamsuddin, 30, promptly reduced by about a third the amount of food that he buys for himself, his wife and their three children.

“But I won’t be able to run my family for the next two months with this little amount of savings,” he said by telephone from Bhola District, about a 155-mile drive south from the capital, Dhaka. “And when the savings run dry, my life will be a nightmare.”

IN BRIEF - Cameroonian fish farmers set a strategy to develop national aquaculture production

CAMEROON
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Cameroonian fish farmers met on May 14 and 15, 2019, under the supervision of the Ministry of Livestock, to define a strategy to increase aquaculture production in the country, it is officially reported.

Current aquaculture production is about 15,000 tons a year for an estimated 230,000 tons of total fish production. The farmers intend to increase aquaculture to limit massive imports, which absorbed XAF114 billion in 2017.

Government’s mid-term ambition is to increase its aquaculture production to 100,000 tons per annum.

IN BRIEF - Giant fish’s comeback boosts Amazon preservation efforts

FINLAND
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Several metres long and weighing hundreds of kilograms, the Amazon’s pirarucu was almost fished to extinction.

But the creation of sustainable development reserves in Brazil has ensured the giant fish — and its indigenous hunters — are flourishing again.

The resurgence of one of the world’s largest freshwater fish is the result of Brazil’s years-long efforts to combine scientific and traditional know-how to preserve the country’s rich biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods for indigenous communities in the Amazon.

Spanning more than 7.4mn acres, the Mamiraua and neighbouring Amana Sustainable Development Reserves in the upper reaches of the Amazon river were created in the 1990s by the state government.

IN BRIEF - How Bumble Bee Foods And SAP Create Blockchain To Track Fresh Fish From Ocean To Table

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Shoppers buying Bumble Bee branded tuna later this year will be able to take advantage of blockchain technology to ensure the fish they are buying is fresh and from a sustainable source.

As over-fishing and the knock-on effects it can have on ocean ecosystems becomes an increasing problem worldwide, consumers are growing more cautious than ever about where their food is coming from.

Blockchain – the technology made famous by cryptocurrency Bitcoin but with potential to be used anywhere where ledgers are used in a supply chain - has been suggested as a possible solution to this problem.
