IN RIEF - Legislature passes resolution in defense of Southeast Alaska troll fishery

Saturday, March 25, 2023

Alaska legislators on Monday passed the Defense of Alaska Fisheries Resolution, urging federal and state officials to continue to defend the state’s fisheries, including the Southeast Alaska troll fishery, and to do everything within their power to keep that fishery open.

House Joint Resolution 5, was introduced by Rep. Rebecca Himschoot, D-Juneau, in response to a lawsuit filed by the Seattle-based Wild Fish Conservancy, to halt the Southeast Alaska troll salmon fishery, in order to provide more fish for Southern Resident orca whales in Puget Sound. Participants in the fishery as well as legislators, said a closure would be devastating for the troll fleet and have a significant economic impact on the region. 

Rep. Mary Peltola, D-Alaska, addressing participants in ComFish Alaska 2023 in Kodiak this past weekend, noted that the Southern Resident orcas are hundreds of miles away from the troll fishery and that the Alaska delegation has filed a brief challenging the lawsuit. “We will not let our Alaska small boat trollers be bullied,” Peltola said.

A recent report from a magistrate judge in Washington state recommended against allowing retention of king salmon during the winter and summer troll seasons in that fishery. A decision is pending in U.S. District Court.

IN RIEF - Ministers seek to fight organized crime in global fishery

Saturday, March 25, 2023

Organized crime in the fishery industry that endangers stocks, exploits labor and robs states of billions of dollars must be fought. This is according to officials meeting in Copenhagen on Thursday, March 23.

Around 600 million people worldwide depend on the sector for their livelihoods.

Government ministers and delegates attended a conference by the Blue Justice Initiative. The conference was backed by 60 coastal states including Brazil, South Africa, Norway and Indonesia. The goal was to jointly eliminate transnational crime in global fishery.

Many developing nations lack the basic tracking systems needed to understand the latitude of the problems, the Norwegian fisheries ministry said.

The transnational nature of organized crime makes law enforcement even harder. It can be difficult to prove that a crime took place within the maritime borders of a particular country.

IN BRIEF - Trial begins for top Moon officials regarding death of fisheries employee

Friday, March 24, 2023

The first trial of the top intelligence and security officials from the Moon Jae-in government began Friday over the death of a South Korean public employee who drifted into North Korean waters.  

The trial took place on West Sea Defense Day, which was first designated in 2016 to commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives to defend against military provocations by North Korea, in the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong in 2002, the sinking of the Cheonan warship in 2010 and the shelling of Yeongpyeong Island in 2010.

Former Blue House national security adviser Suh Hoon, National Intelligence Service (NIS) Chief Park Jie-won and Defense Minister Suh Wook appeared at the Seoul Central District Court where they defended themselves against allegations that they had tampered with and manipulated documents in order to make it look like a South Korean fisheries official was attempting to defect to North Korea.

IN BRIEF - Seychelles fisheries sector meets to discuss experimental fisheries protocol

Friday, March 24, 2023

Representatives from the Seychelles Fishing Authority (SFA), the fisheries ministry and the private sector have started discussions on draft protocol for experimental fisheries that will support fish exports from the island nation

During the half-day workshop on Thursday, stakeholders gave their inputs on developments they would like to see take place. It was also an opportunity for the private sector to establish how they can work with the authority and the ministry to develop the protocol.

An operational protocol for experimental fisheries provides step-by-step guidelines for the design and implementation of new fisheries as well as identifies new fishery resources that are under-utilised or test new fishing methods. At the moment Seychelles does not have a comprehensive experimental fisheries policy and no experimental fisheries protocol is in place.
