Satofuru Co., Ltd. , which operates the hometown tax donation site ``Satoful'', announced, ``Don't give in to the crisis! Support Japan's seafood business with hometown tax donations.

IN BRIEF - Fish farm escapes from open-net pen salmon aquaculture must stop, say Atlantic conservationists

Tuesday, September 12, 2023

Atlantic Salmon Federation issues latest call for action after finding escaped aquaculture fish; industry blames seal populations Gulf of Maine and Atlantic Canada

Salmon conservationists are in a fish flap with the aquaculture industry, accusing the sector of allowing farmed salmon to escape and endanger the last remaining wild stock in the Bay of Fundy between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia

But the fish farmers association has shot back, saying the group hasn’t proven the salmon are from the industry's sea pens, despite recent seal attacks that ripped holes in an aquaculture firm's nets.

Wild Atlantic salmon are an iconic species, long heralded by anglers and considered sacred to Indigenous communities.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) announced last week it had removed 46 escaped aquaculture salmon from the Magaguadavic River fishway in southwest New Brunswick since Aug. 1, including 10 large fish captured Tuesday, Sept. 5.

RCMP arrested and later released two men for alleged assaults on Saturday after police responded to what they described as "an assembly" at a fishing wharf in southwestern Nova Scotia.

RCMP spokesman Const. Guillaume Tremblay said police couldn't provide further details on the reason for the gathering of about 30 people, or whether there were conflicts between Indigenous and non-Indigenous fishers during the afternoon protest.

Tensions have been mounting this summer in southern Nova Scotia over unauthorized lobster fishing, and the province's fisheries minister has said he intends to increase the maximum fine to $1 million for commercial buyers who are caught selling out-of-season lobster.

As of last week, the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans said it had seized 464 traps for non-compliance with the Fisheries Act in two fishing areas in southwestern Nova Scotia known as LFAs 33 and 34.

The department also said it arrested two people from Saulnierville, N.S., in Moncton, N.B., last Wednesday and seized more than 8,000 lobsters caught in southwestern Nova Scotia, which were returned to the ocean.[...]
