IN BRIEF - New floating fish farm off Changi aims to produce more seafood than traditional coastal farms

SINGAPORE
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

SINGAPORE — A sustainable fish farm floating off the shores of Singapore gives a glimpse of what it is like to produce seafood with less energy and cleaner water, as the Government aims to reach the goal of producing 30 per cent of the country’s nutritional needs by 2030.

Situated 5km away from Changi Point Ferry Terminal, the facility called Eco-Ark looks to be one of the first floating closed-containment fish farms in the world, its developer said.

The farm was named and commissioned on Tuesday (Nov 19 2019).

Built and run by Singapore food producer Aquaculture Centre of Excellence Group, it uses patented technology to rear three types of fishes for consumers here: Barramundi, red snapper and hybrid grouper.

IN BRIEF - Gideon Pringle to leave Mowi Scotland

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Mowi Scotland’s high profile farming operations director, Gideon Pringle, is to leave the company, it was confirmed tonight. The search is now on for his replacement at Scotland’s biggest salmon farming company.

Pringle, who returned to Mowi in 2016 after five years as farming director of trout farmer Dawnfresh, is credited with turning around the salmon producer’s sea lice challenges.

Earlier this year, he told a Fisheries Management Scotland conference in Edinburgh that Mowi had ‘full control’ of sea lice on its farms,  and that a change of strategy, a new team and new methods had reduced parasite levels to record lows on Scotland’s west coast.

IN BRIEF - Ocean could provide over six times more food than it does today

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

LONDON - The ocean could provide over six times more food than it does now with better management and more technological innovation, scientists said on Tuesday, adding that boosting cultivation of bivalves like mussels and clams could be especially beneficial.

They estimated the oceans could provide more than two thirds of the animal protein that U.N. food experts predict will be needed to feed the world in future. Fish currently accounts for about a fifth of animal protein consumed by humans.

Cultivating food from the ocean generally has a lower impact on the climate than land-based agriculture, and is not limited by the same land and water constraints, the scientists said.

IN BRIEF - Fishing vessels pushing vaquita porpoise to extinction: U.N. treaty head

UNITED NATIONS
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

GENEVA - A rare species of porpoise is facing imminent extinction as fishing vessels appear to be flouting an international ban on them entering its last sanctuary, off the coast of Mexico, the head of a U.N. treaty said.

There are thought to be fewer than 30 vaquita porposies left worldwide, mostly due to deaths caused by entanglement in fishing nets, despite calls by conservationists and film star Leonardo DiCaprio for urgent steps to protect them.

If the small, stub-nosed vaquita goes extinct, it would be the first species subject to maximum protection under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) to vanish, raising questions about its effectiveness.

NETHERLANDS
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

A Dutch aquaculture company with plans to expand to the U.S. appears to have settled on Jonesport. Kingfish Zeeland will debut plans for a land-based fish farm to the town this week. The news was first reported by the Machias Valley News Observer.

Selectman Billy Milliken on November 15 told The Free Press that representatives of Kingfish Zeeland have been in Jonesport for “a few months” and have met with town officials during that time. Principals of the company are scheduled to unveil plans for the new facility Wednesday, November 20, at 6 p.m. at Peabody Memorial Library in Jonesport.

Kingfish Zeeland operates a land-based recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) facility in the Netherlands with an annual production of 600 metric tons of yellowtail, also known as kingfish.

IN BRIEF - Canned Tuna Maker Bumble Bee Preps for Bankruptcy Filing

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Bumble Bee Foods LLC is preparing to file for bankruptcy within days over mounting legal expenses stemming from its involvement in a conspiracy to fix prices on canned tuna, according to people familiar with the matter.

The San Diego-based company, owned by London-based private-equity firm Lion Capital, is expected to file a chapter 11 petition shortly and will put itself up for sale, the people said. Bumble Bee didn’t respond to a request for comment. Lion Capital, which bought the company in 2010 for USD 980 million, also didn’t immediately respond.

Bumble Bee pleaded guilty in 2017 and agreed to pay a USD 25 million fine for having formed a cartel with its two main competitors, Chicken of the Sea and StarKist Co.

IN BRIEF - Commercial fishing and the effects of farmed salmon are leading to the decline in numbers of the species

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, November 19, 2019

'Salar the salmon ' , a novel written by the great naturalist Henry Williamson, is one of my favourite books and I recommend it to readers.

Atlantic salmon have been swimming up our rivers for some weeks, intent on arriving at the shallow upper reaches where they will spawn from November until February.

But the aptly named 'king of fish' is in trouble for a number of reasons with only a very small proportion of those hatched returning safely to breed years later, compared with many more a decade or so ago. Furthermore, any that do make it are much smaller than those in the past.
