IN BRIEF - It’s ‘raining prawns’ in Penang

Tuesday, March 21, 2023

GEORGE TOWN: If you have been raising your eyebrows over the prices of various meats, here is some good news.

Catches from the sea by inshore fishermen in Penang are pouring in, sometimes so much that even storing them has become a challenge.

Large shrimps are especially plentiful, followed by silver pomfrets.

“During low seasons, we would receive only between 50kg and 60kg of prawns from fishermen each day.

“Since end-January, we received much more, averaging between 100kg and 200kg and up to 500kg daily,” said a fishmonger who wished to be known only as Siang at Cecil Street Market yesterday.

Siang said fishmongers were committed to buy everything caught by inshore fishermen, which has led to another challenge of storing them.

“Due to tremendous supply, we reduced the price of large prawns from RM60 per kg to as low as RM53 per kg so that people will buy more.

Inshore fishermen in the south of Penang island confirm that catches have been good, particularly large prawns and also “everyday fish” like cencaru (torpedo scad, popularly stuffed with sambal belacan and then fried throughout Malaysia).

Pak Wan, a 57-year-old fisherman in Balik Pulau, said he had not seen prawns in his net for over a year but they started returning about two weeks ago.

IN BRIEF - Fishermen’s union terms trawling ban a big step towards resource conservation

Thursday, June 08, 2023

The Matsya Thozhilali Aikya Vedhi, an independent union of traditional fishermen, has said that the annual trawling ban is an important step towards conservation of fisheries resources.

The annual trawling ban comes into effect on June 9 and will be on till the midnight of July 31. During the period, around 3,800 trawling boats, 500 gillnet boats, and 140 purse seiner boats will stay away from the waters off the coast of Kerala.

While the State government has made arrangements to provide free ration supply during the ban period, it has not come forward to provide financial aid to the affected fishermen, said a press release from the Aikya Vedi here on Wednesday. A meeting of stakeholders called by the government decided to check identity cards strictly during the ban period.

A press statement from the fishermen’s union claimed that species such as oil sardines, which had virtually disappeared over the past 10 days, had reappeared. Fish landings in Kerala stood at 6.89 lakh tonnes in 2022. While oil sardine landings stood at 3.98 lakh tonnes in 2012, the volume dropped to 3,000 tonnes in 2021. The rise in oil sardine catch in 2012 was also marked by a rise in the volume of pelagic species such as Indian Mackerel.

Other Media | FishFocus: Overfishing linked to rapid evolution of cod.

Thursday, June 08, 2023

Rutgers-led genetic analysis of Atlantic cod also shows fish, if properly managed, may rebound and provide sustainable food source.

The overfishing of codfish spanning the second half of the 20th century indicates that human action can force evolutionary changes more quickly than widely believed, according to a Rutgers-led study.

Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, a report by scientists offers the first genomic evidence that Atlantic cod evolved new traits over only decades during a period of overfishing –
