In a major effort to increase the domestic fish production in the State, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute here will implement a INR 15-crore project helping fish farmers to launch 500 cage farming units. The farmers will be offered subsidy and technical support to carry out the cage culture under the scheme, which is funded by the National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB), Hyderabad.
According to the programme, 40% of the total expense will be given as subsidy to the farmers who can conduct farming individually or in groups. Women and those from the SC/ST category will get 60% subsidy. The programme will be implemented in coastal districts of the State. Species such as sea bass, pearl spot, cobia, pompano and red snapper will be farmed.
The farmers from the coastal districts can register now at the Mariculture Division of the CMFRI to become part of the scheme. The applicants should be capable of carrying out the farming in water that is at least three metres deep during the low tide. Approval will be given only after a CMFRI team reviews the spot and various conditions of the water resources for farming, including environmental factors.
HÀ N?I - Vi?t Nam now has more opportunities to promote its tra fish exports to China, according to the Vi?t Nam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP).
China’s reduction of import duties on 221 seafood products came into effect from July 1 for members of the World Trade Organisation. Of which, the import duty would drop to 7 per cent for catfish fillets and fresh or chilled catfish from 10 per cent and from 12 per cent, respectively.
The tax reduction is an opportunity for Vi?t Nam’s companies exporting tra fish to China to increase profits. It would also promote exports, especially the exports of large traders and companies, to this country, the largest export market of Vietnamese tra fish at present.
Oyster farmers will have almost AUD 1.6 million in annual lease and licence fees waived over the next two years by the state Liberal government, who will honor Labor’s policy which was revealed prior to the state election.
The Marshall government will also aim to implement their election promise of restructuring aquaculture leases by the end of the year by amending the Aquaculture Act 2001, allowing existing aquaculture lease holders to borrow against their leases.
The policies are a response to the Pacific Oyster Morality Syndrome (POMS) outbreaks in Tasmania in 2016, which saw South Australian growers unable to import Tasmanian spat to grow on their farms.
SKIBBEREEN company, the Fresh Fish Deli, has signed an agreement worth €500,000 with SuperValu to supply its fish cakes nationwide.
The move comes following the company’s participation in the Food Academy programme, which is a joint initiative between Bord Bia, the Local Enterprise Office Network and SuperValu.
Monica Buckley co-founded the Fresh Fish Deli in 2014, and since then has built up a network of local fish suppliers.
As part of the Food Academy programme, the Fresh Fish Deli’s products went on sale in over 40 SuperValu stores in Munster and after proving popular, a nationwide deal with SuperValu’s network of 217 stores was secured.
VANCOUVER - The B.C. government is promising stronger regulations for fish processing plants following an audit of 30 facilities that revealed more than 70 per cent of them had broken rules meant to protect the environment.
While the Ministry of Environment said in a release Wednesday that most infractions were administrative issues such as failing to post proper signage, some were far more serious.
The audit, which investigated facilities that process both farmed and wild salmon, found some fish facilities have released either too much wastewater or wastewater that was too heavily contaminated into the environment, the report notes.
It’s Friday and fish is back on the menu, for all of us, not just Catholics. In the 18th century we raised our children on oysters and sprats, as befits an island. Now we import most of our fish and export most of our small catch as far as South Korea, which has a taste for our whelks. But there are two things that might change this: Michael Gove and London restaurateurs.
The Environment Secretary turbot-charged the issue of British fishermen and where they can cast their nets in a new White Paper this week. We are told we will get our territorial waters back from the EU under international law, and our fisherman’s catch will expand. Now the next question is what are we going to do with all that fish?
Gove, not always seen as the coolest kid in town, might just be about to become bang on trend. London restaurants have been throwing our fishermen a line.
The Center for Biological Diversity has sued the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for allegedly failing to protect critical habitats for four endangered mussel species known to live in West Virginia rivers and streams.
The suit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., seeks to require the Fish and Wildlife Service to specify the habitat needed for the continued survival, and eventual recovery, of the mussel species. By designating such critical habitat, federal agencies funding or issuing permits for projects in places near sites where the mussels are known to live are required to consult with Fish and Wildlife to make sure the habitat is not damaged.
Attorneys for the Center for Biological Diversity maintain that by law, Fish and Wildlife should have issued a critical habitat designation for the endangered mussels in early 2013, one year after they were granted Endangered Species Act protection due mainly to habitat loss.
