Other Media | SeafoodSource: Second attempt at orange roughy MSC certification denied

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

A second attempt by Australia's orange roughy fishery certified to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standard has been thrown out by an independent adjudicator.

The decision puts to rest a fight between WWF and the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) over the certification of the orange roughy fishery, a species considered endangered, threatened, and protected under Australian law.

In 2020, U.S.-based MRAG Americas recommended Australia’s orange roughy fishery be certified as sustainable according MSC certification guidelines.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Solar lights ‘improve fish growth and feed conversion’

Tuesday, April 13, 2021

Dutch lighting giant Signify has launched new solar-powered fish-pond lights that it says increase growth and improve feed conversion ratio (FCR) in many different species, including tilapia.

The grow lights fit any pond and can illuminate for up to six hours after sunset, said the company, which markets the product under its Philips brand.

Research by the South China Agricultural University in a commercial-scale trial at a tilapia farm using 60 solar luminaires in a 7,000m² pond confirmed a 10% increase in fish growth and a 10% reduction in FCR, meaning that fish farmers need less feed per kilogram of fish, Signify said in a press release.

Egyptian leader uses channel liberation and patriotism to gain popularity

Two months after leading the Army in removing the country's first democratically elected ruler, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi made a pilgrimage to the Suez Canal. In a ceremony laden with patriotism, the former general announced a mega-project that would revive Egypt after the chaos of the Arab Spring: an expansion of the canal, one of the most powerful symbols of Egyptian national identity, worth $ 8 billion. "We must move forward, and do it firmly, to get out of the circle of poverty in which we are immersed," Sisi said then.

Otros Medios | Industrias Pesqueras: Greenpeace constata el uso de redes a la deriva por parte de Irán en el Índico

Tuesday, April 13, 2021

La salud de los recursos marinos del Índico, así como de los medios de vida de las regiones costeras de la región, están “amenazados” por la presión pesquera en alta mar, según ha advertido Greenpeace.

La ONG acaba de publicar un nuevo informe en el que alerta sobre el impacto de las redes a la deriva en el Índico o la creciente pesca de calamar “sin control”, problemas que se incrementan ante la "debilidad" de la gestión por parte de la IOTC. El informe se publica después de que la ORP concluyera su última reunión extraordinaria sin acuerdo para el yellowfin.
