Other Media | WorldFishing: Fishing vessels help with krill surveys

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

The Association of Responsible Krill Fishing Companies (ARK) is using fishing vessels to monitor the status of the krill population around South Georgia.

When the seas around Antarctica freeze, the krill fishing fleet seeks the open waters around South Georgia to continue its operations. To protect the rich fauna in the region, this winter fishery is highly regulated, incorporating a precautionary quota, use of marine mammal exclusion devices, scientific observers and a 30km no-take protection zone around the island.

The British Antarctic Survey conducts annual at-sea surveys for krill, as well as studies on the foraging behaviour and breeding performance of land-based marine predators.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: SalMar applies for open sea site for 19,000t fish farm

Monday, January 11, 2021

Salmon farmer SalMar has applied for permission to site its planned Smart Fish Farm (SFF) in an area of open sea between 30 and 70 miles off the Norwegian coast.

In 2019, the SalMar subsidiary MariCulture AS received a commitment for eight development permits for testing the technology in the SFF concept, and it is this facility that is planned to be established on the site, the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries announced in a statement on Friday.

Other Media | The Fish Site: High hopes for novel acoustic feeding system

Monday, January 11, 2021

A new feeding system based on passive acoustics and artificial intelligence may improve the sustainability of the aquaculture industry.

Called the Smart System for Feeding Control (SICA), it is a non-invasive, passive acoustic system which consists of two modules: a data logger and a control unit. The data logger, which is deployed in sea cages, acquires the data through the passive acoustic sensor, which is then transmitted via the wireless communication module. The control unit then applies the machine-learning algorithms to the data allowing it to make decisions about the feeding process.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Brexit is ‘perfect storm’ for seafood exporters

Friday, January 08, 2021

Seafood exporters in Scotland have complained that “unnecessary” post-Brexit red tape is holding up lorry shipments of fresh fish to Europe.

Difficulties and errors in competing the forms that are now required for export to the EU and a shortage of vets to provide export health certificates, together with IT problems for the customs authorities in France, have been holding up consignments. It is taking longer to obtain export health certificates for both farmed salmon and vessel caught fish. The delays follow the chaos created by the pre-Christmas travel ban which was temporarily imposed by France response to increasing Covid-19 cases in the UK.

Other Media | FiskerForum: UK Fishing Industry Licks Its Wounds

Friday, January 08, 2021

After having first made plain their disappointment at the deal reached by the UK government on fishing in its negotiations with the European Union, UK federations have had a breathing space to take stock of the situation.

‘In the wake of the agreement reached with the EU on Christmas eve, our immediate task was to blunt the Government’s attempts to present the outcome on fisheries as a famous victory’ an NFFO spokesman commented.

‘In Parliament and right across the media the country and the world, through the Federation’s efforts, was made to understand that, in echoes of 1973, the UK fishing industry had again been sacrificed for other national objectives.
