The environmental organization Sea Sheperd accuses vessels of 16 meters or more, especially trawlers, of French fishing of decimating the dolphins and sharks of the Atlantic coast. According to Sea Shepherd, for a month she has been patrolling the French Atlantic coast, to witness the activity of small-scale fishing. The small ship Sea Sheperd, Le Clémentine, followed the activities of the French fishing vessel "Voluntas Dei" from Arcachon, which currently operates in Finistere (Brittany). The "Voluntas Dei" is a relatively modest 16 meter long fishing vessel giving the image of working in responsible and reasoned fishing, when it is not.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has signed an executive order establishing a commission that will provide advice on mitigating the invasion of Asian carp into the state’s lakes and river systems, according to a news release.
Asian carp were first imported to the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s and now threaten to upend aquatic ecosystems, starve out native fish and wipe out endangered mussel and snail populations along the Mississippi River and dozens of tributaries.
Nationally, state and federal agencies have spent roughly $607 million to stop them since 2004. Projects in the works are expected to push the price tag to about $1.5 billion over the next decade.
Lee signed the order Wednesday. The new Asian Carp Advisory Commission will provide its first report in October.
This non-governmental institution was founded in 1997 and since then has been dedicated to the promotion, education and leadership of responsible aquaculture.
The Chilean Salmon Industry Association A.G. (SalmonChile) and the Technological Institute of Salmon (Intesal), which is the technical arm of the union, recently joined the international organization Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA). “This - according to what was assured by SalmonChile - thanks to the work and efforts made in matters of sustainability and social responsibility that allowed the union and the more than 50 small, medium and large companies that make it up to join this network that promotes responsible aquaculture ”.
Dutch fishermen’s association VisNed has filed a formal complaint against Greenpeace following its latest stunt in dropping boulders on Dogger Bank fishing grounds. VisNed states that contrary to Greenpeace’s claims, there is no illegal fishing in the area.
The latest Greenpeace boulder publicity stunt, the latest in a long series of these going back a couple of decades, has been widely condemned by fishermen’s organisations – with many pointing out that fishing vessels are pursued relentlessly for the slightest infringement, while Greenpeace appears to be able to carry out clear infringements of the law (including the UK’s Merchant Shipping Act) without an interference from the authorities.
