Nova Scotia says No to Genetically Modified Fish | Aquaculture Directory

Nova Scotia says No to Genetically Modified Fish | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Production of genetically modified fish will not be welcome in Nova Scotia any time soon, according to provincial fisheries minister Keith Colwell. 

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency on Thursday gave the green light to supermarkets to sell a type of fast-growing genetically modified salmon being developed by U.S.-based AquaBounty. Colwell told the Chronicle Herald Friday that the province is working on policy to officially ban the farming of GM fish here. 

“We really don’t want any connection with the GMO salmon. We have a system that works in the province now and that works very well, and we don’t want to interfere with something that works very well,” Colwell said.

Indian Ocean tuna commission reaches landmark decision on harvest control rules | Aquaculture Directory

Indian Ocean tuna commission reaches landmark decision on harvest control rules | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) applauds the decision by the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) to adopt much needed harvest control rules for skipjack tuna caught in the Indian Ocean. 

The agreement, reached by member states attending the IOTC annual meeting this week in La Reunion, marks a turning point in the management of tuna stocks and will support the long term sustainability of the Indian Ocean skipjack fishery. 

Rupert Howes, Chief Executive of the MSC said: “The adoption of this harvest control measure is a ground breaking moment in the responsible management of tuna fisheries globally. 

The Maldives, supported by other Indian Ocean coastal states and the International Pole and Line Foundation (IPNLF), led the efforts to ensure that a framework is put in place for improved management of skipjack stocks. We congratulate the IOTC and all involved in delivering this agreement, a critical breakthrough for sustainable management of Indian Ocean tuna fisheries.”

Northern Cod stocks slowly increasing | Aquaculture Directory

Northern Cod stocks slowly increasing | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The Atlantic cod stocks are returning, but there's still a long way to go before a large-scale commercial fishery becomes viable again. 

That's the finding of new research by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which shows that cod stocks in the Northern region are on the way towards leaving the "critical" designation. 

"The stock is still not up to the level that it was, say, back in the 1980s when we had a substantial fishery," John Brattey, a cod research scientist with DFO, said in an interview with CBC Radio's The Broadcast.

Sustainable Fisheries Partnership announces new FIP rating system | Aquaculture Directory

Sustainable Fisheries Partnership announces new FIP rating system | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) is pleased to announce a new, first-of-its-kind evaluation tool and grading system for fishery improvement projects (FIPs) that will allow the seafood industry and other stakeholders to assess the effectiveness of these initiatives. 

SFP routinely collects data on FIPs, but this new component uses that data to provide the seafood industry with an easy-to-understand snapshot of a project’s status. 

“This tool makes it even easier for our partners to see just where a FIP stands,” said Braddock Spear, SFP’s Systems Division Director. “It’s a great way to monitor a FIP’s progress toward sustainability.”

Icelandic capelin enters MSC assessment | Aquaculture Directory

Icelandic capelin enters MSC assessment | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The Iceland Sustainable Fisheries (ISF) capelin fishery has started Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) assessment, aiming to be MSC certified as sustainable and well-managed by the end of 2016. If successful, MSC certified capelin will become important within the feed sector and the Asian market. 

A commercially important species 
Capelin became a commercially important species for the pelagic fleet after the collapse of Atlanto-Scandian herring in the late sixties. Average annual catches last century were around 900,000 tonnes, which peaked in the mid 1990’s with 1.5 million tonnes. 

Capelin has since been the main pelagic fishery in Iceland for over two decades. Last decade, the annual catches fluctuated on average around 350,000 tonnes. This reduction in catch is most likely due to warmer water that has changed and narrowed the distribution of the fish.

Norwegian salmon industry will benefit from improvements in Chilean farming | Aquaculture Directory

Norwegian salmon industry will benefit from improvements in Chilean farming | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Improved biology in Chile with predictable and sustainable volume growth will benefit Norwegian salmon industry, was the key messages from Cermaq’s CEO Jon Hindar at the Seafood conference. 

Norway and Chile accounted for 80% of global supply in 2015, and other regions are too small to materially impact global market balance and prices. Hence, a prolonged negative growth scenario in Chile can lead to demand destruction for salmon unless growth in Norway can compensate.

Leading British supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer (M&S) are among a cross-sector cluster of organisations that have voluntarily signed an agreement to protect a key Arctic region from industrial fishing, by preventing suppliers from expanding cod fisheries into pristine marine waters. 

Signed by an alliance of global fishing stakeholders including the catchers, processors, retailers and foodservice, this new agreement will ensure limitations to industrial fishing while robust scientific research takes place in the largely unexplored ocean environment of the Barents and Norwegian Seas. 

The list of signatories also includes Asda, Morrison’s, McDonald's, Birds Eye and Young's Seafood.
