INDIA
Monday, July 15, 2019

Fisherfolk in Ras Al Khaimah will now know if the fish they caught must be returned into the water - thanks to a new smart app that can detect 21 types of banned fish.

Launched by the Ras Al Khaimah Fishermen Society recently, the app is called 'Augmented Reality Measurement' and it can be easily downloaded on mobile phones and other smart devices.

"It runs even without an Internet connection, so fishermen can use it while they are out in the sea. It helps fishermen measure their catch and put the banned fish they caught back into the water," said Humaid Al Zaabi, deputy chairman of the society.

IN BRIEF - 500 Species Of Fish Change Sex In Adulthood: Researchers

UNITED STATES
Monday, July 15, 2019

WASHINGTON - Five hundred species of fish change sex in adulthood, often in response to environmental cues, researchers have found.

"I've followed the bluehead wrasse for years because sex change is so quick and is triggered by a visual cue. How sex can reverse so spectacularly has been a mystery for decades. The genes haven''t changed. So it must be the signals that turn them off and on," said Prof Jenny Graves, one of the researchers of the study.

Bluehead wrasses live in groups, on coral reefs of the Caribbean. A dominant male with a blue head protects a harem of yellow females. If the male is removed, the biggest female becomes male in just 10 days. She changes her behavior in minutes and her color in hours. Her ovary becomes a testis and by 10 days it is making sperm.

IN BRIEF - A fish tag that knows it's been eaten is helping endangered Atlantic salmon

CANADA
Monday, July 15, 2019

New tracking devices inserted into Atlantic salmon reveal that up to 48 per cent of the critically endangered fish are being eaten while leaving Nova Scotia's Stewiacke River on their ocean migration.

The insight is the result of acoustic tags that can tell when a tagged fish has been eaten.

"It certainly is high, and it's somewhat higher than some work that was done by some colleagues of mine about 10 years ago using similar tags, but without the predation detecting capability," says David Hardie, a marine biologist with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

IN BRIEF - Scientists excited by open ocean's potential for aquaculture industry

NEW ZEALAND
Friday, July 12, 2019

The open ocean is calling to aquaculture as a new frontier, and scientists are optimistic for the future of the industry.

Cawthron Institute aquaculture scientist Kevin Heasman said open or "exposed" ocean aquaculture, which Cawthron had been studying since 2003, had "huge potential" for existing industry organisations and for newcomers who didn't have access to sheltered coastal areas.

Open ocean farming had the potential to turn vast swathes of the ocean into productive space with minimal negative impact on the environment, and potentially provide greater resilience in the face of climate change, Heasman said.

IN BRIEF - Canadian company wins approval for new lobster bait fish

CANADA
Friday, July 12, 2019

Maine’s lobster fishermen will be able to use a new species of bait fish to try to get through a herring shortage that has troubled the industry in recent years.

Lobstermen typically bait traps with Atlantic herring, but federal fishery regulators have enacted dramatic cutbacks to the catch quotas for that fish. The Maine Department of Marine Resources said Thursday it has approved the blackbelly rosefish as a new species that can be sold and used as lobster bait in the state.

The blackbelly rosefish is an abundant species that ranges from Canada to South America. Cooke Aquaculture, a New Brunswick, Canada-based company, requested Maine’s approval to sell rosefish as bait, and the company announced plans to harvest the fish off Uruguay.
