IN BRIEF - Where plastic outnumbers fish by seven to one

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Plastic is building up in the areas of the ocean where fish feed and grow, according to research.

A study found bits of plastic outnumber baby fish by seven to one in nursery waters off Hawaii.

It appears that the same ocean processes that concentrate prey for juvenile fish also accumulate floating plastics.

IN BRIEF - Fishmeal developed for sustainable aquaculture

SWEDEN
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Aquaculture in Sweden could be more sustainable if by-products from industrial feed production were used instead of wild-caught aquafeed, according to studies at the University of Gothenburg.

One of the most important challenges in aquaculture is access to fishmeal. Demand outweighs supply today due to the rapid expansion of aquaculture.

A new thesis has studied farming of the two species Atlantic wolffish and European lobster.

IN BRIEF - HiSea Project to Launch the First Prototype of a High-Resolution System Providing Data on Sea Water Quality

FRANCE
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

NICE - The EU-funded HiSea Project will reveal the first prototype of its state-of-the-art platform providing high resolution data of sea water quality, at the project's General Assembly scheduled to take place in Nice, France on November 25-26, 2019.    

During its final stage, the innovative HiSea platform will provide data on physical parameters (meteorology, waves, currents, etc.) and water quality parameters (chlorophyll, marine pollution, etc.), based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of existing partners' proven platforms such as FEWS or AQUASAFE.  

The platform is built on an end-user centred approach, involving various end-users and stakeholders from the port and aquaculture industries. They have been directly involved in the service's design, development and operation. The HiSea system is aimed at improving the operation, planning and management of a variety of marine activities, focusing on the port and aquaculture sectors.

IN BRIEF - The bacteria which will help RAS aquaculture fulfil its potential

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Nova Q sees predictability in water treatment as being of core importance to the future success of RAS aquaculture.

In the opening comments to RAS-Tec, the global Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) conference held in Washington earlier this year, AquaBounty’s Sylvia Wulf set the scene: over the next 30 years, the global demand for fish protein will double. Now, in 2019, 90% of our seas are overfished; meaning 100% of this new demand will have to be provided by farmed fish.

The recent Aquaculture Frontiers market report on RAS aquaculture from Spheric Research and UCN identified 10 areas where RAS needed to develop to fulfil its potential. Four of those challenges related to biological filters, and specifically the effective management of ammonia and nitrate in the recirculating water.

IN BRIEF - Japan's marine eco-label likely to be made international standard

JAPAN
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Japan's certification system for protecting marine resources, called Marine Eco-Label Japan (MEL), is expected to be approved as an international standard by the end of this year, government sources said.

With eco-conscious Western nations in mind, Japan hopes to promote its efforts to show consideration for the Earth, thus boosting exports of domestic fishery products.

Established by the Japan Fisheries Association in 2007, MEL is a certification system aimed at maintaining the sound operations of the fisheries industry. Certified merchants can attach labels to their products to differentiate themselves from others.

CHILE
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Chilean Multiexport Foods is developing a blockchain-based solution that will enable customers to trace the origin of its salmon sold at various outlets, just by scanning a QR code.

The firm started by salmon farmer and processor in 2017 to find ways of integrating technologies like Blockchain, Artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) with its processes.

It has created a remote feeding facility for salmon using Artificial Intelligence and a video system wherein salmon at multiple farming centers are fed from a central office, which subsequently cuts down the workforce required for manual feeding.

IN BRIEF - Processed Meat and Seafood Packaging in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – Industry Report

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Demand for easy-to-prepare food such as processed meat and seafood is continuing to rise, in accordance with the appeal of convenience. However, retail shelf space devoted to chilled and frozen processed meat and seafood remains limited. Standard brands are giving big discounts to consumers, thus posing a threat to premium-positioned brands, which are not able to compete in terms of price. This has tended to restrict investment in packaging innovation in processed meat and seafood.

Processed Meat and Seafood Packaging in United Arab Emirates report offers insight into key trends and developments driving packaging across the category. The report also examines trends and prospect for various pack types and closures: metal packaging, rigid plastic, glass, liquid cartons, paper-based containers; flexible packaging.

IN BRIEF - Parts of the ocean have seven times more plastic than fish, study finds

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, November 12, 2019

New research on larval fish, which are young members of the species, has found that they are growing up around and ingesting plastic.

The affected fish includes a range of fish species from different ocean habitats. Scientists studied them as they fed on the water's surface.

The study, by  the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and an international team of scientists, including Bangor University in the UK, found that in some cases there were seven times more plastics than there were larval fish.
