IN BRIEF - 90 pct of country's waters free from foreign fishermen's intrusion

MYANMAR
Wednesday, December 04, 2019

SERDANG - Ninety per cent of the country's waters is now free from intrusion by foreign fishing boats since an operation code-named “Op Naga” was launched last April, said Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub.

He said during the period, 160 foreign fishing boats were detained in the South China Sea and the Straits of Melaka, resulting in a significant increase in catches of local fishermen on the East Coast and the West Coast.

"The operation is not limited to detaining foreign fishing boats but also to prevent the use of fishing equipment such as dragon fish traps that can destroy the marine ecosystem," he told a press conference after opening a dialogue on the national fisheries industry here today.

IN BRIEF - The EU Fish Market 2019 edition is out: everything you wanted to know about the EU market for fish and seafood

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, December 04, 2019

If you want to know what fishery products are exported or imported, when and where, what is consumed and by whom, what are the main trends of the European fisheries and aquaculture sector, then have a look at the newly released EU Fish market annual report. The 2019 edition provides analyses of landings, import and export origins and destinations, along with an overview of how EU Member States’ fisheries and aquaculture sectors fit into the global picture.

How much fish do Europeans eat per year? Which are the 3 countries which consume most fish and seafood and which consume the least?

Consumption of fish and seafood in the EU was estimated at 24.35 kg per capita in 2017. On average, EU citizens ate half a kilo less compared to the previous year. Portugal remains the absolute champion in terms of per capita consumption. In 2017, the Portuguese ate 56.8 kg of fish and seafood per capita, which is more than twice the EU level. After Portugal, Spain and Malta are the countries in which most fish and seafood is eaten. Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania registered the lowest level in the EU in terms of per capita consumption. Compared with 2016, the most significant decrease in absolute terms concerned Luxembourg (-2.6 kg per capita) while the most notable growth was observed in Belgium (+2.3 kg per capita).

IN BRIEF - New green Gitte Henning

DENMARK
Tuesday, December 03, 2019

GITTE HENNING fishing company is leading the way by bringing fishing in blue Denmark into a new, green age by contracting a new, environmentally friendly pelagic fishing vessel from the Spanish shipyard Zamakona in Bilbao.

Henning Kjeldsen says he initially intended to withdraw from fishing after the sale of Gitte Henning to the Faroe Islands, as well as receiving offers for all his pelagic fishing rights. After thinking about the future, I got cold feet doing nothing, and contacted Salt Ship Design, says Henning.

Together, Henning and Salt have now designed a new, green Gitte Henning. The new fishing vessel will have a number of environmentally friendly solutions, many of them new in pelagic fishing. Throughout the design process and in the choice of equipment, the focus has been on improving quality of the fish and reducing emissions throughreduced energy consumption and efficient power production.

EN BREVE - Herring fishing to be limited off New England for months

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, December 03, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine - Federal fishing regulators are limiting the amount of herring that fishermen can catch off New England until the end of 2019.

Atlantic herring are the subject of a large fishing industry in the Northeast. They’re used for bait and food.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says it’s implementing a 2,000-pound herring possession limit per trip in the inshore Gulf of Maine until Dec. 31 2019. The agency says it’s taking the step because 92% of the catch limit in the area has been harvested.

IN BRIEF - Vietnam airs video of Chinese ship sinking fishing boat in South China Sea

CHINA
Tuesday, December 03, 2019

Vietnam has released dramatic footage showing a large Chinese ship chasing and ramming one of its fishing boats that then sank near an oil rig in contested waters in the South China Sea.

The communist neighbours have traded accusations over the May 26 sinking incident, with Hanoi decrying an “inhuman act” by China, which blamed intrusion by the Vietnamese vessel.

The footage, shot from a nearby Vietnamese vessel, show a much larger Chinese ship racing after a small wooden Vietnamese fishing boat, ramming into it and causing it to tip over and sink.

IN BRIEF - Depleted fish stocks can’t wait. The EU and Norway need to commit to ending overfishing now

NORWAY
Monday, December 02, 2019

On November the 2nd 2019's week, in a quiet street in the Norwegian harbour town of Bergen, officials from EU member states and Norway will hole up in the Fiskeridirektoratet, or Fisheries Directorate, to decide the size of the fish pie to get divided out between them from so-called “shared stocks.” This “consultation,” as it is known, happens away from public scrutiny. Yet, fishing industry lobbyists are allowed in where they get to cosy up to delegates, while civil society representatives are - quite literally - left out in the cold. These annual gatherings are even more secretive than the EU AGRIFISH council meetings, which were recently investigated by the EU Ombudsman and found to be lacking in transparency.

EU-Norway consultations consistently result in agreements to continue overfishing. This is in no small part due to a bewilderingly flawed approach: by assuming the scientific advice for maximum sustainable catches as a starting point and then negotiating upwards. The EU committed to phase out overfishing under the reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) by 2015 or, at the absolute latest, by 2020. Yet while the act of catching too many fish occurs at sea, it is inside meetings like this where overfishing is shamelessly agreed upon and approved.

On 16 December 2019 in Brussels, EU fisheries ministers will follow up on the Norway “consultations” at the annual AGRIFISH Council meeting, where quotas for the North East Atlantic will be fought over into the wee hours of the night. According to all the signs, this year they will again agree to overfish several key stocks.

IN BRIEF - Views sought on strengthening iwi aquaculture claims processes

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, December 02, 2019

Fisheries Minister Stuart Nash announced today a public consultation on proposed changes to strengthen the allocation and transfer process in the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004.

"Some of the current requirements are preventing several iwi from accessing and developing their aquaculture settlement assets and the proposal outlines options to strengthen processes," says Stuart Nash.

"Tangata whenua have expressed that they would like to see better access for iwi to develop their aquaculture settlement assets.

"Iwi have an important role in New Zealand's sustainable and innovative aquaculture sector as they continue to acquire and develop their interests in the industry, and improvements need to be made to support this development."
