IN BRIEF - Fishermen warn against carve-up of UK waters in Brexit deal

Friday, June 15, 2018

Fishermen from across the UK have visited Westminster to warn against a repeat of the “travesty” of 1973 when they claim British waters were carved up to the advantage of foreign fishing interests upon joining the European Economic Community.

Barrie Deas, the chief executive of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations, said the fishing industry might be small but it was “emblematic” of Brexit because leaving the EU represented an opportunity to right 45 years of wrongs.

“It’s important that parliament understands what’s at stake in the withdrawal negotiations,” Deas told MPs at an industry gathering in the House of Commons. “Our priorities are above all to manage and control access to our waters and rebalance what we call an asymmetric and exploitative deal that dates back to 1973.”

IN BRIEF - Changes in fishing regulations

Friday, March 15, 2019

Because the Ballville Dam at Fremont was removed, he said the river downstream of Water Works Dam, south of the Ella Street Bridge, has the same fishing regulations as Lake Erie.

“Because the Ballville Dam came out, they had to establish a new landmark for the Lake Erie Sport Fishing District,” he said. “People will need to pay attention to the Lake Erie regulations if they’re fishing from the Water Works Dam in Tiffin downstream. All the Lake Erie regulations apply.”

Leibengood said one change to be aware of applies to the spring walleye run, March 1 through April 30 2019.

IN BRIEF - Taking the sea out of seafood

Friday, March 15, 2019

Land-based aquaculture can sound like a mirage — shrimp farms in the desert, salmon swimming "upstream" in an alpine village tank, tilapia swishing over the plains. And for a long time, ample production of sea delicacies in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) has been more dream than reality. Yet the technology and its innovators steadily have gained momentum and finally may be hitting their tipping point.

The allure of fish grown on land is easy to understand: Like all aquaculture, it reduces demand for wild fish, but unlike with sea-based pens, closed-loop RAS farms (PDF) run no risk of fish escaping to dilute the native gene pool, spread diseases or discharge waste and antibiotics into the wild. RAS farmers have near-full control over growing conditions, so they can optimize for growth and quality. And with its amenability to unlikely locations, RAS can sit near major consumer markets, providing fresh local seafood even when the shore is hundreds of miles away.

IN BRIEF - Fish More Expensive in Iceland than in Landlocked EU Countries

Friday, March 15, 2019

Running a household in Iceland is 66% more expensive in Iceland than it is in the European Union, RÚV reports. This was among the findings presented by economist Gylfi Magnússon during his talk at a conference held by the Consumer Association of Iceland and the Icelandic Confederation of Labour.

Gylfi found that even when compared with some of the most expensive countries in Europe, Iceland did not come out well. “Expenses in Iceland were 17% higher than in Denmark, which was the most expensive country in the European Union in 2017,” he remarked. “And we managed to even overtake the Norwegians in this respect, and Norway is usually the most expensive country in mainland Europe.”

Gylfi asserted that Iceland’s small market size worked against it. Many Icelandic companies, he said, are too small and inefficient. Moreover, shipping expenses aren’t always transparent and are higher in Iceland than they are in other places. He also noted that the prices of items sold in international chain stores, such as Lindex, Bauhaus, and H&M, are an average of 20% higher in Iceland than they are abroad.
