Cooke buys Wanchese Fish Company

Michelle Miller's insight:

"The Cooke family has signed an agreement with the Daniels family for the purchase of Wanchese Fish Company based in Suffolk, Virginia US, confirming talks Undercurrent News has covered since last year.

This deal and investment into the wild fishery comes in tandem with the creation of a new company, Cooke Seafood USA Inc., which "will provide another platform for future growth within the capture fishery", Cooke said in a release on Friday morning.

Wanchese is a harvester, processor and distributor with the capacity to harvest 4,000 tons of wild scallops, flounder and other seafood products each year. Founded in 1936, it owns a fleet of 15 vessels capable of providing product fresh to the US, with process-at-sea capabilities, as well as a cold storage facility and processing plant in Suffolk, Virginia.

“This purchase is an exciting venture for us as we add a well-respected, family-owned and vertically integrated fishing company to our family’s businesses,” Glenn Cooke, CEO Of the newly formed company, said.

This brings to a close a long process. Sources told Undercurrent Cooke was looking to purchase Wanchese in November of last year."

Potential of seagrass to combating climate change

Potential of seagrass to combating climate change | Aquaculture | Scoop.it
Seagrass ecosystems could play a key role in combating climate change, researchers have discovered. The marine flowering plant also helps sustain abundant sea life and protects shorelines around the world from coastal erosion. Yet with seagrass habitats suffering rapid global decline and despite the plant's huge potential; there are currently no functioning seagrass restoration or conservation projects. Due to their shallow coastal habitat the aquatic plant is particularly prone to human disturb

“Jurassic Park of sponges” discovered in the Mediterranean Sea

Spanish researchers have published[i] in PLoS ONE the discovery of a ‘rock’ sponge reef unique in the world. The structure, of which its kind was thought to have been extinct millions of years ago, was discovered at a depth of 760 metres surrounding the top of a small seamount between Valencia and Ibiza where drilling for hydrocarbons has been planned.

Gaye Rosier's curator insight, May 31, 2015 8:57 AM

An amazing discovery but researchers fear that plans for the prospecting of hydrocarbons in the Balearic Sea may affect the unique reef discovered, which could be severely damaged before it can be properly studied.
