IN BRIEF - Salmon Evolution seeks staff after GBP 4.5m funding round
Monday, February 11, 2019
Salmon Evolution, which plans to produce 28,800 tonnes of salmon per year on a land-based farm in Norway, has started recruiting after raising NOK 50 million (EUR 4.5m) through a private share placement to fund its first construction phase.
One of the founders, former SalMar regional manager Ingjarl Skarvøy, has led the company in the initial phase and is now moving into a role as chief operating officer to safeguard and ensure quality on the operational side. Skarvøy leads the organisation until a new chief executive joins.
“I see it as natural that I take responsibility for the construction of the operational part of Salmon Evolution where I have my expertise,” said Skarvøy.
McDonald's has introduced and quietly killed many dishes over the years (remember McDonald's pizza?), but there's a core group of items that have held their spot on the menu for decades.
Listed alongside the Big Mac and McNuggets is the Filet-O-Fish—a McDonald's staple you may have forgotten about if you're not the type of person who orders seafood from fast food restaurants.
But the classic sandwich, consisting of a fried fish filet, tartar sauce, and American cheese on a bun, didn't get on the menu by mistake—and thanks to its popularity around Lent, it's likely to stick around.
Glen Libby looks back fondly on his days as a Maine shrimp trawler, but he’s concerned about what seafood lovers will think if the shuttered fishery ever reopens.
“Shrimp? What are those?” he said. “There will be a market. But it depends how big of a market you’re talking about.”
Maine’s historic shrimp industry has been closed since 2013 because of a loss in population of shrimp off of New England that is tied in large part to warming oceans. And with a reopening likely several years away – if it ever happens at all – Libby and others who formerly worked in the business are grappling with how much of the industry they’ll be able to salvage if the time ever comes.
The Tory MP for St Austell, Cornwall, told Express.co.uk there is still a "very deep sense of betrayal" in his fishing community over the way the industry was "sold out" to the EU when the UK joined the common market. Mr Double warned the Prime Minister's Brexit deal risks of keeping the UK in the EU Common Fisheries Policy, breaking the promise made to fishermen all over the country who voted to leave the EU to take back control of UK fishing waters.
SIM cards, bluefin tuna, and intercepted intimate conversations are at the centre of the latest scandal in the fishing industry, involving the now-suspended Director Andreina Fenech Farrugia and a Spanish industry magnate. The case appears to be just the tip of the iceberg with the reports threatening to expose a wide-network of bribery and corruption in the highest levels of the industry.
What is this story all about?
Leaked phone transcripts obtained by Spanish investigative authorities have fuelled allegations that now-suspended Fisheries Director Fenech Farrugia would obtain payments targeted at using her influence to regularise fish-catches above quotas that would then be exported to the more lucrative markets of Japan, Spain, and the US.

Technology is playing an increasingly vital role in conservation and ecology research. Drones in particular hold huge potential in the fight to save the world’s remaining wildlife from extinction. With their help, researchers can now track wild animals through dense forests and monitor whales in vast oceans. The World Wildlife Fund for Nature estimates that up to five living species on earth become extinct every day, making it vital that universities develop new technologies to capture the data that can persuade those in power to act.
The British International Education Association and the Born Free Foundation hosted a conference in January to highlight the importance of technological solutions in protecting vulnerable species and ecosystems. Speakers underlined how technology can help conservation efforts: fixed-wing drones can land on water and circle high above the Indian Ocean to spot whales, rays and illegal fishing, while artificial intelligence-enabled infrared cameras are able to identify members of an individual species or human poachers, even through thick environmental cover.

Following a request from Clearwater to advance the timing of the annual audit of the fishery, today the conformity assessment body Lloyd’s Register announced its decision to undertake its annual surveillance audit of the Eastern Canadian offshore lobster fishery in compliance with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) in April.
In the interest of transparency, and to acknowledge stakeholder concerns, Clearwater welcomes the full review of the offshore lobster fishery. All stakeholders have an opportunity to participate in the audit process. The site visit for the audit will take place the week of April 8th 2019—earlier than the regularly scheduled annual review, which is typically done in June.
