IN BRIEF - Fisheries Department announces chinook fishing restrictions in B.C.

CANADA
Monday, April 22, 2019

The federal government has announced commercial and recreational fishing restrictions in British Columbia as a way to conserve chinook salmon returning to the Fraser River this season.

The Fisheries Department’s regional director general Rebecca Reid says urgent protection measures include the closure of a commercial fishery involving seven endangered stocks.

Reid says an independent committee of wildlife experts and scientists conducted an assessment last November and determined seven chinook populations on the Fraser River are endangered, four are threatened and one is of special concern.

One area salmon was considered not at risk while three others were not assessed by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada.

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, April 22, 2019

A fishing boat has sunk in Oban harbour just a short distance from the town's lifeboat station.

An RNLI boat with seven crew was sent at 05:23 to the Railway Pier but was unable to save the vessel. There was no one onboard.

A second fishing vessel tied alongside the sunken boat was moved to save it from damage.

Coastguards teams used anti-pollution booms to minimise the impact of diesel and oil leaking into the water.

VIET NAM
Monday, April 22, 2019

H?I PHÒNG - Two coast guard ships from Region 1 High Command left the northern port city of H?i Phòng on Sunday, beginning a patrol to examine the enforcement of the Vi?t Nam-China agreement on fishery cooperation in the Gulf of Tonkin.

The trip will cover a visit to and an exchange programme on Vi?t Nam’s C?n C? Island, and communications activities to increase awareness on the agreement for fishermen at sea.

Senior Lieutenant Colonel Lê Huy, deputy political commissar of the Coast Guard Region 1, said over the past 15 years since the agreement took effect, Vi?t Nam’s competent agencies and fishermen have coordinated together to maintain production and ensure marine security on the shared fishing waters between the two nations.

IN BRIEF - The fish you're eating in London might not be what it's labelled

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, April 18, 2019

When biology professor Jennifer McDonald got the DNA results back from her students' experiment on fish, a high number of the fish were not what was said on the label.  

As part of a class experiment at Fanshawe College, her students were sent to grocery stores and sushi restaurants in London to collect fish samples. 

The class extracted the DNA and compared how many samples were actually what they claimed to be.

IN BRIEF - Pink salmon expected to drive up Alaska commercial salmon harvest this season

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Expected increases in pink and chum salmon harvests are forecast to drive Alaska’s overall commercial salmon catch way up for the 2019 season, a state forecast says.

The state is predicted to see an 84% increase in its commercial salmon harvest this year by number of fish, according to the annual forecast from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The agency projects a harvest of about 213 million salmon, compared to the 2018 harvest of about 116 million. Fishing starts in May 2019.

2018 was a difficult one for some Alaska commercial salmon fisheries. It’s not out of the ordinary for a harvest to oscillate so much from one year to the next, said McDowell Group economist Garrett Evridge. Even by 84%.

IN BRIEF - Mowi buys Anglesey lumpfish farm

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, April 17, 2019

The Welsh lumpfish farmer, Ocean Matters, has been bought by Mowi Scotland, effective from April 15, the company confirmed today.

The facility, in Penmon, Anglesey, North Wales, has the capacity to produce two million of the cleaner fish, which it has been supplying to the salmon farming industry in Scotland to control sea lice.

Its main customer is Mowi, which has said it would need to deploy more than two million lumpfish by 2020.

Ocean Matters, formed in 2015 on the site of an old turbot farm, harvested its first lumpfish in 2016.

Production manager Daniel Phillips told Fish Farmer in 2017 that the facility had the potential to produce up to six million cleaner fish.

IN BRIEF - Former pulp mill town ground zero in Nova Scotia fish farms debate

CANADA
Wednesday, April 17, 2019

On Main Street in Liverpool, N.S., opponents of salmon farming wave placards at passing traffic.

The signs read, "Save Liverpool Bay! Say No! Open-Pen Fish Farms."

Some vehicles honk in support, but many others do not during a recent afternoon in the South Shore community.

The former pulp mill town is now ground zero in a renewed debate about coastal salmon farms.

"Too many fish die, there's disease. It's not a clean business and it's just not right for Nova Scotia," said Brian Muldoon.

IN BRIEF - Electric fishing definitely buried by European Parliament

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, April 17, 2019

571 against 60: with an overwhelming majority, the European Parliament adopted on 16 April the Trilogue agreement concluded on 13 February 2019 on the ‘Technical Measures’ Regulation, which includes electric fishing. The prohibition of this destructive method will become effective from 1 July 2021.

Between the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal in a few weeks and 1 July 2021, the number of trawlers authorized to conduct electric fishing will be drastically reduced from 84 to around a dozen Dutch trawlers. Furthermore, each Member State may also decide to prohibit electric fishing in its 12-nautical-mile coastal strip, i.e. 22.2 km. In France, a draft law was tabled to this effect by 126 Members of Parliament fromm all political groups. In Belgium, MEP Tom Vandenkendelaere (EPP) also wants a ban on electric fishing in Belgian waters. In the Netherlands, small-scale fishers from C-LIFE are fighting for this to be also applied, but their government is unfortunately clearly in favour of electric fishers.

IN BRIEF - Salmon industry 'paying pittance' for marine debris fines, Greens senator Nick McKim says

AUSTRALIA
Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Tasmania's major salmon farmers have paid just a few thousand dollars in fines since the State Government introduced a "zero tolerance" approach to marine debris.

Since July last year when "zero tolerance" was introduced, the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and the Environment (DPIPWE) has issued eight infringement notices for marine debris or marine farming equipment located outside marine farming lease areas.

Information provided to the Greens by Primary Industries Minister Guy Barnett at the end of last month revealed there had been seven fines issued by that time, to a total of $4075.
