IN BRIEF - Mystery solved: MPI reveals probable source of thousands of dead fish around Hauraki Gulf

NEW ZEALAND
Monday, December 16, 2019

Up to 40 tonnes of dead blue mackerel could be sloshing around in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf, a coastal fisheries expert says.

Locals have reported cleaning trailerloads of fish off the shores of Kawau Island, while numerous reports of dead fish have been received by the Ministry for Primary Industries in December 2019.

Posters on social media said birds weren't feeding on the fish - apart from pecking out their eyes.

IN BRIEF - Norway’s seafood watchdog facing overhaul

NORWAY
Monday, December 16, 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 - Mekong basin's vanishing fish signal tough times ahead in Cambodia

CAMBODIA
Monday, December 16, 2019

Tbong sits in the shade of a makeshift stilt hut over the edge of Tonlé Sap lake, surrounded by curious children.

“Snake, catfish, elephant fish …” he says, his eyes crinkled against the sun. “Before, a long time ago … the lake had a lot of catfish.”

But in just one generation, everything has changed. Fish species are dwindling, plant life is dying and the entire Mekong system is breaking apart. For the children gathered around Tbong, a plentiful Tonlé Sap is nothing but a story.

Situated in the heart of the lower Mekong basin, Tonlé Sap is the largest freshwater lake in south-east Asia. The lake and its surrounding floodplains were designated a Unesco biosphere reserve in 1997 and the lake supports the breeding, feeding and harvesting of hundreds of species of fish and other freshwater produce.

IN BRIEF - FDA approves fish oil-based drug to prevent heart problems

UNITED STATES
Monday, December 16, 2019

The FDA approved the first-ever fish oil-based drug for preventing heart problems.

It's called Vascepa and is designed for high-risk patients already taking cholesterol-lowering pills. It's supposed to reduce high levels of triglycerides.

Triglycerides can play a role in the hardening of arteries, which increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Doctors say the drug reduced heart health risks by about 25% inpatient testing.

SRI LANKA
Thursday, December 12, 2019

Colombo - The Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA) has decided to monitor the plastic usage on single and multi-day fishing trawlers. Fishermen take 500 to 1000 1 litre bottles when they head out to sea. These steps are being taken to protect ocean life.

IN BRIEF - Fishrot probe could take years – Kawana

NAMIBIA
Thursday, December 12, 2019

Acting fisheries minister Albert Kawana says the planned investigation into the fishing sector could take years to complete.

Kawana said people should not expect issues of maladministration, corruption and nepotism in the fishing sector to be fixed in a week, a month or a year, because some of the anomalies could require the government to amend the Marine Resources Act.

The acting minister explained at a media briefing on Monday that he was ordered by president Hage Geingob to investigate if there were any instances of maladministration, corruption and nepotism in the sector.
