Most of the time, you can tell by the smell of a food item if it has gone bad or isn’t safe to eat. Maybe the texture of it changed or it tastes off. With fish this is usually particularly evident because of its strong odor. But some Kroger customers have gotten ill from eating the supermarket’s spoiled fish and had no idea that what they were consuming wasn’t safe. There have been several cases of scombroid poisoning that was caused by Kroger’s yellowfin tuna steaks causing the FDA to issue a recall of the product, according to Today.
Scombroid poisoning is a serious condition and leads to some pretty undesirable symptoms, including flushing and rash on the face and body, sweating, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps. Health officials say that it is hard to tell just by the smell or look of the fish that it can lead to scombroid poisoning. It might not smell or even taste abnormal.
A raft of environmental bodies have welcomed a European Commission proposal for stricter limits on Baltic Sea fishing.
The Commission’s proposed total allowable catch (TAC) for Baltic Sea fishing in 2020 falls largely in line with scientific advice on limits which will maintain fish stocks; though TACs remain higher than scientists’ recommendations for salmon, Western herring and Eastern Baltic cod, which is subject to an emergency fishing ban until the end of 2019.
The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation’s Senior Advisor Tapani Veistola said: “The scientific advice on main basin Baltic salmon clearly states that commercial landings should be 58,900 salmon. The Commission proposal of 86,575 salmon is not in line with that advice. Ministers at the October Council should follow the scientific advice on Baltic salmon, not the Commission proposal…With some Baltic stocks in crisis, the Common Fisheries Policy deadline of 2020 for stocks to be managed sustainably and in the midst of a biodiversity and climate emergency, decisions taken during Finland’s presidencies of the EU and BALTFISH [the Baltic Sea Fisheries Forum] will be crucial.”
Scientists with the Strategic Salmon Health Initiative (SSHI) have discovered three new viruses in chinook, sockeye and farmed salmon in B.C.
One of the viruses was hitherto not known to infect fish, according to the study, published in the journal eLIFe.
The extent to which the viruses may have an impact on fish health is not yet known.
“The discovery in dead and dying farmed salmon of previously unrecognized viruses that are also widely distributed in wild salmon, emphasizes the potential role that viral disease may play in the population dynamics of wild fish stocks, and the threat that these viruses may pose to aquaculture,” the study finds.
Myanmar exports freshwater fish, various kinds of dried fish and ginger to Bangladesh through Maungdaw border trade and the value of export in August reached over USD 700,000, according to the Directorate of Maungdaw Border Trade Camp.
Meanwhile, import value of last month amounted to USD 2,000.
"In August trade value amounted to USD 0.739 million. Major export items are wet ginger, chickpea and fishes such as carp and various kinds of dried fish. In late August, commodity flow decreased. Due to poor road transport, we had to export in small cars. We could not use cold storage cars and trucks. If road transport is better, we will have regular trade," said Tha Tun Sein, camp in charge.
The fisheries union wants an emergency meeting with the federal minister to talk about a fish we do not often hear much about.
Mackerel are plentiful off some areas of Newfoundland according to the FFAW, but it says federal science has not kept up with the changing times.
Union president Keith Sullivan says it’s a cyclical fish but DFO science is confined to larval studies off Cape Breton. He says that used to work okay, but in recent years harvesters have seen large amounts of mackerel off Newfoundland’s northeast coast and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The “Aquaculture Cages Market” 2019 report is presented for each solution type, application segment, enterprise size, deployment type, service and regional market. Research analysts and experts have utilized excellent market research tools such as SWOT analysis, Porter’s Five Forces analysis, PEST analysis, and Primary and Secondary research analysis to define, describe and evaluate the competitive landscape of the Aquaculture Cages Market.
There are speculations about Global Aquaculture Cages Market to strongly dominate the global economy with a substantial growth rate in the coming years. Promptly developing industry infrastructure, increased product commercialization, and drifting demands of the Aquaculture Cages are strengthening Aquaculture Cages industry’s footholds to become more influential and significantly contribute to international revenue generation.
The slow-moving, category five Dorian - the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane on record - is bringing sustained winds of up to 165mph and may cause a storm surge of up to 23 feet (7 metres), damaging or destroying thousands of homes.
The BBC, Dorian is forecast to make a gradual turn north or north-west, taking it along the eastern US seaboard, making its landfall point, if any, uncertain.
According to the US National Hurricane Centre it will slowly weaken but remain a powerful hurricane during the next couple of days and would “move dangerously close to the Florida east coast” on Monday night through to Wednesday evening.
