IN BRIEF - Famed Tsukiji fish market uneasy over move to new site

CHINA
Saturday, October 06, 2018

TOKYO - After years of delays Tokyo’s 80-year-old Tsukiji fish market is closing on Saturday 6th of October 2018 to move to a more modern facility on reclaimed industrial land in Tokyo Bay.

The new, CNY 569 billion facility at Toyosu will open on Oct. 11 2018, over the objections of many working in Tsukiji who contend the new site is contaminated, inconvenient and unsafe.

“If the new place were better, I’ll be happy to move,” said Tai Yamaguchi, whose family has run fish wholesaler Hitoku Shoten since 1964.

IN BRIEF - How Nigeria Spends USD 800m On Fish Importation Yearly

NIGERIA
Saturday, October 06, 2018

Nigeria spends USD 800m yearly for importation of fishes for the country’s 3.3m metric tons fish demand, FBNQuest Capital has said.

According to FBNQuest, Nigeria since the last three years has had its domestic fish supply jump 1.2mmt, a product of government’s efforts.

In spite of Nigeria’s abundant water resources, the fisheries segment lacks access to credit as agriculture got 3.5 percent of total credit allocation in Q2 2018.

UNITED STATES

EN BREVE - Taiwanese fishing boat fined for illegal shark catch

TAIWAN
Saturday, October 06, 2018

Taipei - A Taiwanese fishing vessel found to have caught large numbers of prohibited shark species has been fined TWD 11.4 million (USD 367,194) to deter a practice that seriously undermines the nation’s fishing industry, a Fisheries Agency (FA) official said Thursday.

FA officials launched an inspection into Chin Chang No.6 (??6?), which had been in waters east of Papua New Guinea since June, after it arrived in Siaogang Fishing Harbor in Kaohsiung on Sept. 13 2018, Wang Mao-chen (???), deputy head of the FA Deep Sea Fisheries Division, said at a press conference.

The inspection discovered over 30 metric tons of silky sharks and oceanic whitetip sharks, both endangered and prohibited species, in the vessel’s hold, Wang said, adding that the illegal catch was confiscated and destroyed.

IN BRIEF - Kodiak Tanner Fishery Looks Hopeful for 2019

UNITED STATES
Friday, October 05, 2018

Signs are pointing to a Kodiak Tanner crab fishery in January 2018. Managers are still scrubbing the data from the annual survey that’s just wrapped, up but the early numbers look good. 

That looks positive for 2019 because we’ve got this big group of crab that a lot were just sublegal so that is encouraging for 2019 and we might get two years of fishing on this group of crab.

IN BRIEF - Fishing forecasts can predict marine creature movements

UNITED STATES
Friday, October 05, 2018

Do you check the weather forecast before getting dressed in the morning?

If you do, then you’re making a decision in real time, based on dynamic processes that can vary greatly over space and time. Marine animals can be similarly dynamic. They might move in response to constantly shifting ocean conditions, like currents and fronts.

That led us to wonder: Can we predict marine wildlife like meteorologists predict the weather, so fisherman can make real-time decisions on the water? Our team has been studying established tools like those used for weather forecasts, so we can develop a new program that estimates where marine species are likely to be each day. Unlike a weather forecast, our tool can’t help you decide if you need an umbrella or sunglasses, but it can help fishermen decide where to fish.
