IN BRIEF - Seafood Products From Kroger Have Been Recalled After Multiple Cases Of Scombroid Poisoning

Monday, September 09, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - Baltic Sea fishing: NGOs welcome stricter limits, urge further action

Friday, September 06, 2019

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.”

IN BRIEF - Scientists identify new viruses in wild, farmed salmon in B.C.

Friday, September 06, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - Nesvik appointed Norway’s first seafood minister

Friday, September 06, 2019

He was appointed fisheries minister a year ago after his predecessor, Per Sandberg, resigned over a controversial trip to Iran with his new girlfriend.

Nesvik’s promotion and new title have been created to encompass Norway’s position as a multi-seafood country and as the world’s largest farmed salmon producer.

In a reference to the importance of aquaculture, he said: ‘I am happy the title has now been made official because the seafood industry is more than just fishing.

‘The seafood industry is today one of Norway’s most important industries and has the potential to grow further.

IN BRIEF - August 2019's export of fisheries to Bangladesh via border totals over USD 700,000

Tuesday, September 03, 2019

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.

IN BRIEF - FFAW Calls for Emergency Mackerel Meeting with Minister

Tuesday, September 03, 2019

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.
