IN BRIEF - Oslo to spend millions protecting aquaculture

NORWAY
Monday, October 14, 2019

 The money, along with other measures to boost the country’s fishing and aquaculture industry, was announced this week in the national budget for 2020.

The spring algae attack was one of the worst for almost 30 years, killing at least eight million salmon in the Nordland and Troms regions, leading to job losses, hitting communities hard and costing the industry hundreds of millions of kroner.

Some of the government money will be used to set up surveillance systems along the coast so fish can be moved quickly if another attack looks imminent.

IN BRIEF - Fast test to detect deadly heart disease

NORWAY
Monday, October 14, 2019

Cardiomyopathy syndrome (CMS), a fatal viral disease which causes inflammation of the heart, is known to be caused by piscine myocarditis virus (PMCV), although the triggers for the disease are not fully understood.

It can lead to heart failure in apparently healthy fish, resulting in significant stock losses, and is an increasing issue for the Scottish salmon industry.

In Norway, CMS is considered to be the biggest cause of economic losses to salmon farmers, after sea lice and handling, and cost the industry an estimated EUR 145 million in 2018.

IN BRIEF - Good Herring Fishing in Icelandic Waters | Commercial

ICELAND
Thursday, October 10, 2019

Good Herring Fishing in Icelandic Waters – A pelagic trawler belonging to Icelandic seafood and fishing company, Brim, has reported good herring fishing in IIcelandic waters.

“There has been good fishing, but the herring have started heading eastwards now so we have to go further to find them,’ said Theodór Thórðarsson, skipper of Brim’s pelagic vessel Venus, which recently docked in Vopnafjörður with 1600 tonnes on board.

They steamed 15-16 hours from fishing grounds.

‘This was different to the previous trip when we had 1300 tonnes of herring deep in the Héráðsflói Deep. We noticed then that the herring were on the move eastwards, and this time we finished up on the line between the Icelandic and Faroese EEZs – and who knows where they will be when we get out there next?’

IN BRIEF - REA projects sharing results in the most important aquaculture event in Europe

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, October 10, 2019

The EU imports approx. 65% of all the seafood and only produces 1.2% of the world aquaculture products. There is definitely a lot to do to improve these figures and that is why under Horizon 2020 several projects are funded in this field.

The Research Executive Agency (REA) manages a significant share of these projects. So far, around 20 projects with an aquaculture component have been funded under Horizon 2020 with a total EU contribution of approx. EUR 120 million.

Some of these projects are participating in this big event to share achievements and results. For instance, PerformFISH and MedAID are organising an open forum with the industry on Sustainable Solutions to Address Sea Bass and Sea Bream Farming Challenges in the Mediterranean. AquaIMPACT, FutureEUAqua and iFishIENCi are leading a joint session to present their approaches and commonalities on Sustainable European aquaculture 4.0: nutrition and breeding innovations. TAPAS is presenting their key outcome, a toolbox for assessment and planning of sustainable aquaculture.

IN BRIEF - Tuna over-fished across the globe at unprecedented rates - scientists say it’s unsustainable

CANADA
Thursday, October 10, 2019

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Humans are fishing more tuna from the ocean than ever before, and we’re venturing further than ever into open ocean to do so, but the rate at which industrial tuna fishing is increasing is unsustainable, according to a recent study published in the journal Fisheries Research.

Demand for tuna and similar species is at an all-time high. 2014 was a year of record reported landings of 7.7 million tonnes, which has since leveled off to around 7.5 million per year since.

These catch numbers reflect a 1,000 percent increase in the amount of tuna being caught today as compared to 60 years ago, and many scientists believe that these fishing practices are unsustainable.
