IN BRIEF - New green Gitte Henning

DENMARK
Tuesday, December 03, 2019

GITTE HENNING fishing company is leading the way by bringing fishing in blue Denmark into a new, green age by contracting a new, environmentally friendly pelagic fishing vessel from the Spanish shipyard Zamakona in Bilbao.

Henning Kjeldsen says he initially intended to withdraw from fishing after the sale of Gitte Henning to the Faroe Islands, as well as receiving offers for all his pelagic fishing rights. After thinking about the future, I got cold feet doing nothing, and contacted Salt Ship Design, says Henning.

Together, Henning and Salt have now designed a new, green Gitte Henning. The new fishing vessel will have a number of environmentally friendly solutions, many of them new in pelagic fishing. Throughout the design process and in the choice of equipment, the focus has been on improving quality of the fish and reducing emissions throughreduced energy consumption and efficient power production.

EN BREVE - Herring fishing to be limited off New England for months

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, December 03, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine - Federal fishing regulators are limiting the amount of herring that fishermen can catch off New England until the end of 2019.

Atlantic herring are the subject of a large fishing industry in the Northeast. They’re used for bait and food.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says it’s implementing a 2,000-pound herring possession limit per trip in the inshore Gulf of Maine until Dec. 31 2019. The agency says it’s taking the step because 92% of the catch limit in the area has been harvested.

IN BRIEF - Views sought on strengthening iwi aquaculture claims processes

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, December 02, 2019

Fisheries Minister Stuart Nash announced today a public consultation on proposed changes to strengthen the allocation and transfer process in the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004.

"Some of the current requirements are preventing several iwi from accessing and developing their aquaculture settlement assets and the proposal outlines options to strengthen processes," says Stuart Nash.

"Tangata whenua have expressed that they would like to see better access for iwi to develop their aquaculture settlement assets.

"Iwi have an important role in New Zealand's sustainable and innovative aquaculture sector as they continue to acquire and develop their interests in the industry, and improvements need to be made to support this development."

IN BRIEF - Depleted fish stocks can’t wait. The EU and Norway need to commit to ending overfishing now

NORWAY
Monday, December 02, 2019

On November the 2nd 2019's week, in a quiet street in the Norwegian harbour town of Bergen, officials from EU member states and Norway will hole up in the Fiskeridirektoratet, or Fisheries Directorate, to decide the size of the fish pie to get divided out between them from so-called “shared stocks.” This “consultation,” as it is known, happens away from public scrutiny. Yet, fishing industry lobbyists are allowed in where they get to cosy up to delegates, while civil society representatives are - quite literally - left out in the cold. These annual gatherings are even more secretive than the EU AGRIFISH council meetings, which were recently investigated by the EU Ombudsman and found to be lacking in transparency.

EU-Norway consultations consistently result in agreements to continue overfishing. This is in no small part due to a bewilderingly flawed approach: by assuming the scientific advice for maximum sustainable catches as a starting point and then negotiating upwards. The EU committed to phase out overfishing under the reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) by 2015 or, at the absolute latest, by 2020. Yet while the act of catching too many fish occurs at sea, it is inside meetings like this where overfishing is shamelessly agreed upon and approved.

On 16 December 2019 in Brussels, EU fisheries ministers will follow up on the Norway “consultations” at the annual AGRIFISH Council meeting, where quotas for the North East Atlantic will be fought over into the wee hours of the night. According to all the signs, this year they will again agree to overfish several key stocks.

IN BRIEF - Scotland Supports Norwegian Declaration Against Fish Crime

NORWAY
Thursday, November 28, 2019

In 2018, Norway initiated a political declaration against fish crime. On Monday, Scotland’s Fisheries Minister Fergus Ewing signed the declaration. A total of 26 countries have joined Norway’s initiative, according to Kyst og Fjord.

- We know that there, regrettably, is some serious crime in the fish industry. If we are to fight fish crime, we have to stand united. That is why I am glad that Scotland is now onboard, says Norwegian Fisheries and Seafood Minister Harald T. Nesvik.

Norway is working towards having the UN General Assembly recognise fish crime as a problem, however, the efforts have been unsuccessful so far. The international declaration is thus the only international political declaration in its area, which makes it important.

IN BRIEF - Indonesia’s new fisheries minister may go easy on trawl nets, poachers’ boats

INDONESIA
Thursday, November 28, 2019

JAKARTA - Indonesia’s new fisheries minister looks set to unwind hard-fought reforms implemented by his predecessor, in a series of moves critics say will favor large-scale fishing companies over small fishers.

Edhy Prabowo, who took office in October, previously said he would review the regulations put in place by the former minister, Susi Pudjiastuti, including bans on the use of trawl and seine nets, known locally as cantrang, and the sinking of foreign fishing vessels seized in Indonesian waters.

“For cantrang, some have asked me to allow it, while others have asked to ban it because it damages the environment,” Edhy told reporters in Jakarta on Nov. 8. “I’m going to evaluate it. I promise I will have a dialog with the people.”

IN BRIEF - NZ King Salmon faces local opposition in attempt to add pens to Pelorus Sound farm

NEW ZEALAND
Thursday, November 28, 2019

A decision on whether to add four pens to an existing salmon farm in the Marlborough Sounds has faced strong opposition.

Hearings were held in front of a commissioner in Blenheim this week, to determine whether New Zealand King Salmon could add the net pens, along with anchors and surface floats, to the Waitata Reach salmon farm in the outer Pelorus Sound / Te Hoiere.

Community groups raised concerns about the effects on the seabed and king shag seabirds. They also wanted more information about how many fish had been dying at the farm.

IN BRIEF - Damage to the Italian fishing industry due to severe weather

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, November 28, 2019

In recent weeks, repeated episodes of bad weather have swept across Italy and its islands, causing serious damage to its fishing industry.

From an initial survey of the fishing fleets affected, it is estimated that the losses in just one week - between lost earnings and problems affecting fishing and aquaculture facilities - amount to EUR 60 million. The figure could increase if account is taken of the number of fishing days lost (1 fishing boat out of 3 had to remain in port), the silted up ports and damage to boat hulls.

It is small-scale fishing that has borne the brunt of the damage, especially on the north Adriatic coast, where clam fishing has also been heavily damaged.
