MALAYSIA

IN BRIEF - Fish stock, size are deteriorating in national waters

MALAYSIA
Monday, October 21, 2019

KUALA TERENGGANU - The fish stock in the country's territorial waters is now getting less and the size is getting smaller due to human greed.

Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) Fisheries Gear Technology and Fisheries Ecology senior lecturer Dr. Mohd Fazrul Hisam Abd Aziz said fishermen were able to get mega-sized fish easily 15 years ago compared to the present situation and it was one of the signs of the level of pressure on the country's fisheries stock.

One of the reasons for stock loss was illegal fishing, unreported and uncontrolled (Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU)) fishing.

IN BRIEF - BAP Launches Redesigned Website

UNITED STATES
Thursday, October 17, 2019

As part of a rebranding campaign, the Global Aquaculture Alliance on Oct. 16 2019 launched a redesigned Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) website. The refreshed BAP site is more consumer-facing, peppered with messaging that better explains the depth and comprehensiveness of the industry-leading third-party aquaculture certification program.

The new BAP site is anchored by the new BAP logo, unveiled on July 25 as the first step in a multi-step rebranding campaign that’s officially being rolled out this month with the launch of the redesigned BAP site. The rebranding campaign acknowledges the BAP program’s journey from an industry-facing solution to a publicly recognized brand.

Among the features of the new BAP site is a marketing toolkit containing assets for retailers, foodservice operators and consumers, encouraging consistent messaging about the BAP program. The new BAP site also contains a new “Where to Find” page with retail and foodservice endorser logos that are sortable by region and segment as well as a new “Our Logo” page with information about the new BAP logo.

IN BRIEF - Sawfish numbers in global stronghold are dropping, prompting calls for fishing protection

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Numbers of endangered sawfish in one of their most globally important strongholds are dropping, with conservationists calling for rules that will cut the numbers of animals being caught in commercial fishing nets in north Queensland.

In September, a two-week private expedition to monitor and tag sawfish in the Norman River, Queensland, returned without finding a single sawfish.

Sawfish are known for their distinct protruding toothed saw – or rostrum – that can detect electrical signals and movement from nearby prey before swiping at it. Some sawfish can grow to seven metres in length, with the saw accounting for about one-quarter its length.

IN BRIEF - Seafood shippers confident Brexit won't impact supplies

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Confidence in post-Brexit seafood supply from major shippers to the UK has been underlined, days from finding out whether it is deal or no deal.

Iceland, Norway and the Faroes send the vast majority of fish consumed in Britain into the seafood processing capital of Grimsby, via neighbouring Port of Immingham.

From there, via a 5,000 employee strong cluster working for operators large and small, it is dispatched to retailers, fish and chip shops and restaurants the nation over.

And port congestion – particularly in the short term – opposed to cutting off supply, is the biggest concern, with fresh supply among the most vulnerable of cargoes at risk.
