IN BRIEF - Tennessee forms commission to halt invasive Asian carp

UNITED STATES
Friday, September 25, 2020

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.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Ghost nets are the most lethal plastic for marine life, according to WWF

WORLDWIDE
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Abandoned nets, protagonists of ghost fishing, are the most lethal plastic waste for marine species, says the conservation group WWF, which has launched a worldwide campaign to end this threat to life in the sea. The entity maintains that the problem is so serious that it is estimated that, worldwide, 66% of marine mammals, half of birds and all species of sea turtles have been trapped in them; some have been injured and others have died.

WWF warns that plastic is drowning the planet. He estimates that 11 million tons of that material end up in the ocean each year.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: How to meet the demand for fish products of the Chinese population?

CHINA
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Consumption continues to grow, both due to population growth and a diversification of preferences

By 2030, China will need between 6 and 18 million additional tons of fishery products to cover estimated domestic consumption, an amount that represents an increase of between 9 and 27% compared to current data. A study published in One Earth by researchers from the center Beatrice Crona, Emmy Wassénius, Max Troell and Patrik Henriksson together with colleagues from Australia, China, Canada, Malaysia and the United States, analyzes how China can cover this demand and includes three options : the first focuses on intensifying aquaculture production; the second to increase imports of fishery products; and the third to expand the fishing industry in distant waters.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Police investigating two salmon frauds, as well as other several attempts

NORWAY
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Salmon theft case in Northern Norway has grown in scope.

It’s been just over a year since an Estonian lorry driver in his 40s was remanded in custody and charged with embezzlement as well as smuggling salmon from Norway to the Baltics. The man was stopped by police at Mowi’s factory at Herøy, Nordland, on the 13th of September, just as he was about to pick up fish.

Since then, Norwegian and Estonian police have been cooperating on the investigation. In March, police confirmed that seven people had been arrested by Estonian police, charged with organised crime and fraud in connection with the case.

Other Media | The Fish Site:Why floating closed containment aquaculture could be dead in the water

NORWAY
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

The dream of operating floating closed containment aquaculture systems at sea is at risk of becoming “a dead case” in Norway, due to regulatory constraints.

This was the core message provided by Harald Sveier, from Lerøy Seafood Group, at the Smolt production of the future conference, which is taking place virtually today.

Sveier used the occasion to explain how Lerøy’s “Pipefarm” concept had been working since its development, and despite his gloomy conclusion, there were plenty of positives to be taken from the results delivered by this innovative design to date.

810,000 tonnes of imported fish will benefit from massive tariff derogations regardless of their origin, way of production, sustainability of the stock, labour standards or even if the third country has been identified by the EU for illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, according to European fishing industry bodies Europêche and EAPO.

They report that the Council of the EU will shortly approve a regulation setting autonomous tariff quotas (ATQs) for certain fishery products for the years 2021-2023.
