IN BRIEF - Crayfish could be next boom seafood industry with breakthrough breeding technology

AUSTRALIA
Monday, December 23, 2019

They are considered a high-end "white tablecloth" product and global demand for redclaw crayfish — native to northern Australia — is growing at a rapid rate.

Now a north Queensland company in the process of patenting technology to increase hatching rates for crayfish eggs could change the face of Australian aquaculture.

Australian Crayfish Hatchery (ACF), based in Townsville, has developed an in vitro embryo incubation method for redclaw crayfish, producing thousands of juveniles each breeding.

IN BRIEF - Oslo opens way for sea farming expansion

NORWAY
Monday, December 23, 2019

Norway has mapped and identified 11 extensive new zones down its 1,650-mile long coastline that could be suitable for the future development of sea based offshore aquaculture.

The Directorate of Fisheries, which carried out the work in co-operation with the Institute of Marine Research, said the areas will probably have to go through further impact assessment before final approval.

The mapping has been limited to parts of the coast one nautical mile outside the baseline, but within Norway’s exclusive economic zone.

IN BRIEF - Norway’s seafood watchdog facing overhaul

NORWAY
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

Following an investigation, the global services and accounting organisation KPMG delivered a potentially crushing verdict last week on the organisation, essentially saying its systems, planning and monitoring supervision practices were not fit for purpose.

KPMG also said that management, the use of resources and some aspects of security were simply not good enough, adding that significant improvements were urgently needed.

Seafood Norway, the body which represents fishing and aquaculture companies, has welcomed the report.

Its CEO, Geir Ove Ystmark, said Norway had market access to more than 140 countries so it was vital the seafood industry had an efficient and well-functioning food inspection body to watch over catching, processing and the entire value chain in the aquaculture sector.

IN BRIEF - Norway Detects Radioactive Leak From Sunken Soviet Sub, Sees 'No Danger to People or Fish'

NORWAY
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

The Komsomolets sank 7 April 1989, after catching fire southwest of Bjørnøya in the Norwegian Sea. During the heroic attempts to extinguish the fire and save the reactor, and the ensuing ordeal in icy waters, 42 lives were lost, in one of the biggest tragedies in the history of the Soviet Navy.

The wrecked Soviet nuclear submarine Komsomolets is still leaking radioactive waste, 30 years after it sank southwest of Bjørnøya, a new report by the Norwegian Maritime Research Institute has confirmed.

This summer, the Institute of Marine Research, joined by their Russian colleagues and the Directorate of Radiation and Nuclear Safety (DSA), conducted direct research on the Komsomolets using a remotely controlled mini-sub, for the first time in thirty years.

IN BRIEF - Prawn farming extended as 90% of marine resources off Myeik archipelago depletes

MYANMAR
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

As 90 percent of marine resources in the sea of Myeik archipelago is depleting in Taninthayi Region, prawn farming is being extended, said entrepreneurs.

Local businesspeople have to pay greater attention to farming so that their businesses will not stop operation due to marine resource shortages caused by overfishing in the sea.

The extended farming plan comes as seawater prawn faming is more successful on the islands.

"We are losing about 90 percent of marine resources in the sea. So we established prawn farming. If fish and prawn catching no longer exists in the sea, people and staff from this marine industry will get into trouble. We do this mainly to prevent those businesses from ceasing operation, to improve State revenue and to ensure regional development. Our company has about 360 staff, 70 percent of whom are from Kyunsu Township. We are doing prawn farming in vacant lands and salt fields. There is little land that is being depleted. But we do crop-substitute cultivation. Last week, we planted about 80,000 trees. Currently, we are planning to plant over 100,000 saplings in Kyagyiaw," said Kyaw Lin, manager of Pyi Phyo Tun Seawater Fish Farming Company.

IN BRIEF - Fisheries war: Ireland condemns UK over hard Brexit trade deal - ‘Unmitigated disaster’

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, December 18, 2019

British waters are critical to the Irish fishing industry with the two top species - mackerel and prawns - 60 percent and 40 percent respectively dependent on UK seas. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed deliver Brexit by taking the UK out of the European Union on January 31, and giving the EU a tight deadline of before the end of next year to agree a free trade agreement with the UK. Sean O’Donoghue, the chief executive of the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation, has warned the Irish fishing industry is 30 percent dependent on UK waters.

He said Boris Johnson has “signed up for this”, which is a “good starting point”, but warned building a solid foundation does not mean a positive result will come from this.

Irish vessels, which catch around a third of landings off Britain, will continue to be able to fish in those wars for now.
