IN BRIEF - Govt. eyeing huge increase in fish production: Minister

INDIA
Monday, February 11, 2019

Minister for Fisheries J. Mercykutty Amma has said that the government is targeting a three-fold increase in domestic fish production.

“The government has been implementing innovative projects to expand fish production. Projects worth ?9.5 crore have been implemented in inland fisheries sector.

The four hatcheries in the district could produce 2,50,000 freshwater fish seeds and 43,50,000 shrimp seeds. Kulathupuzha and Kanatharkulam hatcheries have already received ?4.9 crore and ?9.5 crore has been sanctioned for the second phase,” she said.

The Minister was inaugurating the distribution of financial aid to fish farmers who suffered huge damages during the floods. Various freshwater farming projects implemented by the government with 40% subsidy had yielded 3766 ton fish so far, she added.

IN BRIEF - Why the Filet-O-Fish Sandwich Has Been on the McDonald's Menu for Nearly 60 Years

WORLDWIDE
Wednesday, February 20, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - Maine shrimpers hope they haven’t seen last of an industry lost to warm seas

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - Change in market strategy penalised Bakkafrost in the fourth quarter

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

The choice to have a lower contract share while being closed out of Russia became an unfortunate coincidence for the Faroese salmon farmer.

“We are very disappointed in this fourth quarter. Looking at the whole year, Bakkafrost is reasonably good compared to the sector otherwise, but the second half has been disappointing for us.”

This is what CEO Regin Jacobsen told SalmonBusiness during Bakkafrost’s quarterly presentation at Hotel Continental in Oslo on Tuesday.

IN BRIEF - BREXIT SELL OUT: May warned she must not 'sell out' fishing industry to EU 'once again'

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - Malta’s Fisheries Director And A Mysterious SIM Card: A Beginner’s Guide To The Tuna Scandal

MALTA
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - Drones and big data: the next frontier in the fight against wildlife extinction

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, February 18, 2019

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.

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.
