Other Media | SeafoodSource: Environmental authorization granted for South Africa aquaculture project

Saturday, April 04, 2020

The South Africa Department of Environment, Forestry, and Fisheries (DEFF) has granted an environmental authorization for a sea-based aquaculture development zone nearly six years after the first one was issued and withdrawn because of protests by environmentalists about the likely negative impact of the project on the environment.

The DEFF said the authorization has been granted “following a number of specialist studies and an environmental impact assessment to determine the likely effects the proposed development would have on the environment.”

The department, which is headed by Fisheries Minister Barbara Creecy, said the EIA process “took into account inter-related socio-economic, cultural, and human-health impacts.”

Three sites named Algoa 1 near Summerstrand, Algoa 6 adjacent to Port Elizabeth, and Algoa 7 in front of Ngqura harbor – all in South Africa’s Eastern Cape – have been identified for the development of finfish and bivalve projects under the authorization.

This is the second time an environmental authorization is being granted for this aquaculture project in the last six years. The first authorization was granted in 2010, but withdrawn in 2014 in response to numerous appeals against it by various environmental and community groups.

Other Media | FishFarmer: September dates for Boston seafood show

Saturday, April 04, 2020

THE Boston Seafood show, postponed last month, is to be staged on September 23-24, the expo organisers confirmed yesterday.

The slightly shorter exhibition will take place at its usual venue, the Boston Exhibition and Convention Centre, with a three-day conference programme starting on September 22, said Diversified Communications.

The annual Seafood Expo North America had been scheduled to start on March 15 but became one of the first major seafood events to be affected by the coronavirus crisis.

The group also postponed the Brussels seafood show, Seafood Expo Global, which had been due to take place from April 21-23. Potential new dates for this exhibition, the world’s biggest seafood show, are June 23-25.

Plizga said the September dates for the Boston event were chosen in consideration of the recent escalating situation with Covid-19, the venue availability, as well as feedback from customers, and high-volume retail and food service buyers from North America.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The French Government welcomes the announcement by the EC and asks to verify that no one is left out

Saturday, April 04, 2020

The Minister of Agriculture and Food of France, Didier Guillaume, has sent a communication in which he expresses gratitude to the European Commission for its "positive response" to the demands for support "for the fishing and aquaculture sector". "During the Council of Ministers of Agriculture and Fisheries that met on March 25, Didier Guillaume and his European counterparts asked Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevicius for immediate measures from the FEMP to allow the sector to face the destabilization of its market", indicates the Ministry .
"The fishing and aquaculture industries are severely destabilized by the consequences of the health crisis that affects all the countries of the European Union," continues the Ministry, pointing out that Guillaume "welcomes the response he has just given. the European Commission and thanks Commissioner Sinkevicius for his response. "
"This proposal must be presented and adopted as soon as possible by the Council and the European Parliament, as it will allow France to rapidly develop its national support framework, in full consultation with the fishing industry and the presidents of the regions concerned," says the French Government.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Fishing and aquaculture will recover the losses credited by the crisis

Saturday, April 04, 2020

EU aid will be completed by the State. Cepesca asks for support for the fleet that continues to fish, and Spanish MEPs advocate opening them to shellfishing
It is not all that the fishing organizations demanded, but it is an economic injection, still unspecified, with which the European Commission intends to compensate the losses of fishing and aquaculture. The European Union (EU) comes to the aid of businessmen and workers whose income has fallen or disappeared as they run out of much of their clientele due to the coronavirus crisis. It will modify the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (FEMP) to compensate them for the stoppage or temporary reduction of activity, covering 75% of the losses they credit; and the rest will be provided by Spain.
The EU is also re-establishing the market intervention tool, in such a way that it will finance the storage of seafood without commercial outlet by COVID-19. The Spanish Government will be responsible for setting the minimum withdrawal price. It will also allow Spain to finance companies affected by the crisis with advances of up to 120,000 euros per firm.
Compensation for stops may be applied retroactively, from February 1, and will be available until the end of the year.

IN BRIEF - Herring spawn enters the digital age with interactive mapping

Saturday, April 04, 2020

The Alaska Department of Fish & Game has developed a pair of interactive tools to help the public stay on top of where herring are spawning in Sitka Sound. The Sitka Sound Daily Herring Spawn is a step up from the diagrams that the department has published in the past.

screen shot of ADF&G’s new interactive Daily Herring Spawn map in Sitka Sound. A similar map, the Daily Sitka Sound Herring Survey, shows the locations of major herring predators like whales and sea lions, as well as the gps track of the survey flight. (Clicking on the yellow lines will open a photo of the spawn, if one is available)

The Sitka Sound Herring Survey identifies where the major predator groups (whales and sea lions) are congregating, and shows the gps track of the ADF&G aerial survey.

The maps are still in beta development; the department is soliciting user feedback | Email comments to aaron.dupuis@alaska.gov

Other Media | The Bristol Bay Times: Cod fishery closed last week in Aleutian Islands State

Saturday, April 04, 2020

The Aleutian Islands state waters cod fishery closed last week, with 15 small boats landing about 15 million pounds in the fishery in the Adak area, down from 18 vessels last year, according to Asia Beder of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Unalaska.

The boat count was smaller because this was the first year that boats choosing to fish the Aleutians fishery couldn't go anywhere else, so some decided to fish the Dutch Harbor subdistrict instead, she said.

Other Media | The Taipei Times:More than 10,000 rare salmon recorded

Friday, April 03, 2020

The nation has 10,532 Formosan landlocked salmon in several mountain creeks, a field survey by the Shei-Pa National Park administration showed.

This was the first time that the number of the endangered species had exceeded 10,000 since the park administration started its field surveys in 1999.

The salmon, which is also known as a “national treasure fish” or Taiwanese salmon (Oncorhynchus masou formosanus), is endemic to Taiwan and at one point was close to extinction.

By the time the park agency was established in 1992, the number of Formosan landlocked salmon had dwindled to about 200.

Since 2000, the park and the Atayal community have been patrolling these creeks to protect these farmed salmon, it said.

The agency has set new conservation goals: From now to 2022, it would restore the population of salmon in the Sijielan Creek (????) and Nanhu Creek (???), and by 2022, traces of the salmon should be found in all five major tributary creeks of the Dajia River.

Salmon from the hatcheries are to be released every August, instead of March, it added.

To raise their survival rate, the fish should be at least 10cm long and released every 100m along the same creek, it said.

Other Media | MonacoTribune: This French bluetech startup is revolutionising fish farming

Friday, April 03, 2020

BIOceanOR, a startup based at the Sophia-Antipolis University Nice, has developed an “underwater weather station” which is revolutionising what we know about marine environments. It is able to monitor water quality in real time and also predict its future quality from patterns previous data has shown. It has been created to, primarily, assure the health of fish farms.

Helping fish farms

Based on the observation that “fish farms are subject to a changing, sometimes harsh marine environment which can impact reproduction”, Samuel was convinced that a more thorough, continuous control of water quality would make managing the farms easier and enable farmers to increase productivity. BIOceanOR thus developed underwater weather stations to track water quality in real time and to be able to predict it.

The device AquaREAL, which does not need to be manually operated, can measure water quality according to more than 14 physics and chemistry-based factors, such as temperature, salt levels, cloudiness, oxygen levels and pollutants. It obtains the analytical results in a few seconds.
