IN BRIEF - Powered by nature: Norwegian cruise operator signs rotten fish biogas deal

NORWAY
Monday, May 27, 2019

OSLO - Norwegian cruise ship operator Hurtigruten has signed a 7.5-year deal to buy liquefied biogas (LBG) made from dead fish and other organic waste to help power its vessels, the firm said on Thursday.

Under the contract with Biokraft, Hurtigruten ships will start receiving near-daily supplies of LBG, with the first delivery taking place in 2020, it added.

The company last year said it would invest about USD 800 million to refit six vessels to partly run on the renewable fuel.

“?ur ships will literally be powered by nature. Biogas is the greenest fuel in shipping, a no-brainer for us, and a huge advantage for the environment,” Hurtigruten chief executive Daniel Skjeldam said in a statement.

The firm declined to provide a figure for the total value of the contract.

Monday, May 27, 2019

Earnings  from  the  sale of  fish  in Trans Nzoia County declined from KES 2.55 million in 2017 to KES 2.1 million in 2018.

The  County Fisheries Director (CFD), Jamleck  Njeru  noted that fish production also decreased from 8.5tonnes to 7.0tonnes during the period under review.

Njeru  attributed the decrease to inadequate cold storage facilities.

“We have only one cold storage facility hence most of the fish go bad which discouraged farmers,” he noted.

Speaking to KNA in his office in Kitale on Friday, Njeru noted that the deep freezer which is installed at the county
fisheries department can only support 200Kilograms of fish at a time.

IN BRIEF - Fishermen face another quota cut, could hit lobster prices

UNITED STATES
Monday, May 27, 2019

Fishermen already dealing with a dramatic reduction in the amount of a key bait fish they are allowed to harvest will likely face an additional cut next year that could drive up the price of lobster for consumers.

Regulators on the East Coast are contending with a drop in the population of herring, a key forage fish species that has been used as lobster bait for generations. Cuts in catch quota this year will mean the total haul for 2019 will be less than a fifth of the 2014 harvest, which was more than 200 million pounds.

A fishery management board is due to make a decision about the 2020 catch limits in early June. The options include maintaining this year’s levels or reducing them further, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has said in public documents.

The agency wants to avoid overfishing at a time when a scientific assessment has shown a below-average number of young herring are joining the population. Scientists have said it’s not clear why that’s the case, but two possibilities they’ve cited are climate change and an abundance of predators.

Gulf of Maine lobstermen are casting around far and wide for new kinds of bait now that federal regulators have cut herring quotas by 70 percent. Possible solutions range from the mass importation of a nuisance fish from the Midwest, to manufactured baits, to pig hides.

Fisheries managers estimate a 50-million pound “herring gap” in Maine over the next year. To help close it, they are turning to colleagues in Illinois.

IN BRIEF - Warnings over new law to protect workers in Thai fishing industry

THAILAND
Friday, May 24, 2019

PHNOM PENH - A new law to address abuses in Thailand’s multi-billion dollar fishing industry contains loopholes, labor rights campaigners said on Thursday, warning of difficulties in enforcement.

The legislation published on Wednesday follows years of global scrutiny over abuse of Thai and migrant workers and mandates basic rights such as social security, medical care and rest periods. It will come into effect in six months.

But campaigners said the government would struggle to enforce the legislation and raised concerns that it remains vague on how any benefits would be accessed.

ITALY
Thursday, May 23, 2019

Fishing industry is not only concern about sustainability, but also ensuring health quality of fish sold in markets. Therefore health quality level of fish market is critical. Fish market regulations have been issued by more than one government agency that have comparable authority. Different mandates of those institutions created a lack of comprehensive regulation on how to develop and manage healthy fish market well. This situation could puzzle existing fish market managers or fish market developers.

Author used direct qualitative comparison between existing regulations and descriptive analysis approach to formulate a comprehensive health standard for fish market development. The result is a synchronized comprehensive health standard consist of five aspects with 59 criteria. Some parts of the comprehensive standard (four aspects and 17 criteria) was then used as try-out to assess the health adequacy level of the Muara Angke fish market.

Simple check list with percentage calculation was implemented to determine the level of health adequacy of the market. The results showed that on average the level of health adequacy reached only 39.7%. It means that Muara Angke fish market is an unhealthy fish market and needs a lot of improvement to become a healthy and hygiene fish market.
