FINLAND: Russian sanctions hit herring industry

FINLAND: Russian sanctions hit herring industry | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Industry lobbyists say that the Finnish fishing industry is facing tough times thanks to sanctions Russia has slapped on fresh produce from the EU.

 

Finnish herring is in a particularly tight spot, as high dioxin levels mean the catch cannot be sold on to EU markets.

 

Fish processing plants in the southwest have already laid off workers as a result of the squeeze, which industry groups say is causing them difficulties.

 

“There’s now a great uncertainty about where these fish are going to go,” said Kim Jordas, Managing Director of the professional fishing industry association. “If these sanctions continue till next spring, for example, then the problems will only get bigger.”

 

Some 4,500 tonnes of fish products are currently waiting for export to Russia, but now need to go to another market. That market will in any case not be in the European Union, where the dioxin levels in Baltic herring are considered too high.

 

Parliament is to vote this week on 600,000 euros in aid for the industry.

 

That money would still need to be approved at EU level before it could be paid out, but in any case it won’t help replace the lost Russian market.

 

That money would be for stocks already in storage, and not for finding new markets. Some industry figures are pessimistic about that, saying that they are likely to end up selling their fish for lower prices.

 

“Fur farming is one realistic option, and if you think of the coming fish stocks, then it could go to Denmark as fishmeal,” said Jordas.

 

Industry lobbyist Jordas says that if the market remains flat and fishing becomes unprofitable, domestic consumers could be left without herring fillets in the supermarket.

NAMIBIA: Horse mackerel quota saved Fishcor

NAMIBIA: Horse mackerel quota saved Fishcor | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

MINISTER of Fisheries and Marine Resources Bernard Esau says the allocation of a horse mackerel quota to Fishcor, a hake fishing right holder, saved over 520 jobs.


Addressing a press conference at Lüderitz last week, Esau said he did not mind that allocating horse mackerel quotas to Fishcor - a non-right holder - contravenes the Marine Resources Act of 2000 because it is state-owned.

“I can allocate a quota to whom I want. In this case, 520 jobs were at stake. I will do all I can to save these jobs. The only whip I have are the quotas. I can reduce a quota or add to it depending on how well you are doing like getting a new factory or acquiring a vessel, irrespective of whether you are a Namibian company or not,” he said.

Esau said Fishcor needed as much aid as possible for it to operate at the optimum level and as “a responsible minister, I would rather act than let a state-owned enterprise under my ministry sink like that”.

The minister said Fishcor's trawlers suffered N$30 million damage, and that they had to sell the horse mackerel and hake quotas to raise funds to resume operations and pay off debts worth N$10 million. According to Esau, the quotas raised about N$42 million.

“We are here for development and not for destruction,” he said, shooting down allegations that he was misusing his ministerial powers.

On the appointment of the new Fishcor board, Esau said they considered abilities in finance, and that he had consulted other stakeholders.

“I handpicked and appointed them based on the State-Owned Enterprise Governance Act of 2008, which gives me the power to appoint board members and its chairperson. This Act is above the Fishcor Act. I exercised my right as a minister.

“The appointment of a new leadership and the allocation of a quota was done to save 520 jobs and ensure that Lüderitz and the economy at large continue benefiting from activities of the Fishcor group,” he said.

Esau denied having interest in any fishing company, saying all the allegations were being made by people out to get him.

Fishcor acting chief executive officer Mike Nghipunya echoed the minister's sentiments, saying his the company has not only saved jobs but also contributed to the Lüderitz economy.

Fisheries permanent secretary Ulitalah Hiveluah said the factory underwent a major refurbishment since May this year. Speaking to The Namibian yesterday, two workers expressed gratitude at the prospect of keeping their jobs and having been able to still get paid at the time when the factory was shut down. By Ndanki Kahiurika

CANADA: Okanagan sockeye restoration successful with decade-long effort

CANADA: Okanagan sockeye restoration successful with decade-long effort | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

In an increasingly warmer world, probably the last place you would expect to see salmon thriving is in the middle of a desert.

 

But this fall, a record number of sockeye salmon – more than 300,000 – swam up the Okanagan River, where they will soon start to lay their eggs in a landscape where cactus, rattlesnakes and sagebrush flourish.

 

The fish reach the heart of the desert, passing through Canada’s warmest lake en route, by migrating up the Columbia River before entering the Okanagan River, south of Osoyoos.

 

For more than a decade, the Okanagan Nation Alliance has been working with tribes in Washington State, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the province of British Columbia to restore the Okanagan sockeye run.

 

And their success has been so remarkable that calling it a miracle in the desert wouldn’t be much of a stretch.

 

“In the mid-nineties, the lowest we saw on the spawning grounds was 1,500 to 2,000 sockeye … and that started the focus on restoration,” said Howie Wright, program manager for Okanagan Nation Alliance fisheries department.

 

“This year has been the highest [sockeye return] on record to the Columbia River. About 615,000 are returning to the Columbia, of which about 85 per cent are coming back to the Okanagan,” he said. “What we’re expecting is 150,000 to 250,000 on the spawning grounds [just north of Osoyoos] … so we’re expecting a pretty good return,” said Mr. Wright.

 

In addition, he expects 15,000 to 40,000 to spawn in the Okanagan River near Penticton and in Skaha Lake, as the sockeye push their range farther up the watershed.

 

Over the summer, 45,000 to 50,000 sockeye were harvested in native and sport fisheries in Osoyoos Lake, which until recently has been better known as a place to go water skiing than fishing.

 

This summer, 50 to 70 sports fishing boats could be seen on the lake most mornings.

 

The Okanagan Nation Alliance – which had “lake to plate in less than 24 hours” as its marketing motto – found a ready local market, with the top chefs at valley wineries vying to outdo each other with fresh, wild salmon offerings.

 

The Okanagan Nation Alliance brought the sockeye back by restoring habitat in the Okanagan River, improving water management and working with the Colville Confederated Tribes on the U.S. side of the border, who both provided funding for work in Canada and pushed public utilities in Washington and Oregon to release water from dams to benefit migrating salmon.

 

None of that would have amounted to anything, however, had it not been for the remarkable adaptability of the Okanagan sockeye.

 

Pacific salmon usually need cold water to survive. In the Fraser River, for example, whenever the temperature climbs above 18 degrees C, fish become increasingly weak and susceptible to die-offs.

 

But not in the South Okanagan, where the sockeye have demonstrated a heat tolerance that has allowed them to migrate through waters that routinely hit 22 degrees C.

 

“They are biogenetic powerhouses … they seem to be just at the right body size and fat content to be able to last four months in the Okanagan,” said Mr. Wright of the fish, which arrive in July and spawn in October.

 

This fall, native fisheries managers will be collecting salmon eggs to fill the trays in a new hatchery that opened this weekend on the Penticton Indian Band reserve lands.

 

The hatchery has the capacity to handle eight million eggs.

Mr. Wright says the plan is to keep building sockeye stocks in the Okanagan lakes, and to restore chinook, coho and steelhead populations, too. Judging by what the Okanagan Nation Alliance has accomplished so far, it looks like this remarkable recovery has just begun.
