A switch to double netting at two salmon farms plagued by seals has paid dividends for Scottish Sea Farms.

The farm team arriving at Swarta Skerry and Bellister in Shetland is used to seeing up to 60 seals on a nearby island between the two farms.

But thanks to a trial with double netting, there has been no seal predation since the beginning of the cycle last July.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: National Geographic calls for halt to salmon farming in key Chilean region

Tuesday, May 31, 2022

A new National Geographic documentary is advocating for the protection of a large portion of Chile's coastline from further commercial salmon-farming development.

The documentary, titled “Canoeros: Memoria Viva” (Canoeists: Living Memory), and its creators are calling for Chile's Kawésqar National Reserve to be classified as a national park, effectively halting farming in the region.

The Kawésqar National Park extends over 2.8 million hectares, making it the second-largest park in Chile.

Monday, May 30, 2022

Due to the invasion of Ukraine, the European Union (EU) included in the fifth package of sanctions against Russia the prohibition of the entry of ships with the flag of that country in the ports of the Twenty-seven. However, the restrictions, in force since April 17, "do not affect fishing vessels or vessels or cargo ships with a gross tonnage of less than 500 GT."

In addition to the fact that Russian fishing vessels can dock at all Spanish docks, those and others with the flag of countries outside the EU refuel in Spain

Other Media | The Fish Site: Thai research collaboration makes additional progress towards low-saline shrimp aquaculture

Monday, May 30, 2022

The Department of Fisheries at Khon Kaen University is carrying out a farming project with vannamei white shrimp that uses a low-saline water circulation system. The project is the collaboration between the department and Thai Union Feed Mill.

To be sustainable, shrimp farming systems need circulating water and a way to drain sewage and wastes in the pond. Waste from shrimp farming can be converted into fish feeds, while the circulated water can be treated in a closed system to reduce waste discharges in the environment.
