Federal Agencies announce proposal creating US Seafood Traceability Program - Aquaculture Directory

Federal Agencies announce proposal creating US Seafood Traceability Program - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The National Ocean Council Committee to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing and Seafood Fraud announced its proposal for creating a U.S. seafood traceability program — the next step the U.S. government is taking to ensure that global seafood resources are sustainably managed and not fraudulently marketed.

 

The proposal, a major step forward in combating illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, aims to trace the origins of imported seafood by establishing reporting and filing procedures for imported fish and fish products entering U.S. commerce.

 

“Traceability is a key tool for combating illicit activities that threaten valuable natural resources, increase global food security risk and disadvantage law-abiding fishermen and seafood producers,” said Kathryn D. Sullivan, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “We are asking the seafood industry, trade and consumer sectors, our international partners and the conservation community to help guide us in creating an effective, efficient program.”

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) celebrates its project partners’ success at the Scottish Enterprise Life Science Awards - Aquaculture Directory

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) celebrates its project partners’ success at the Scottish Enterprise Life Science Awards - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

A SAIC project has won the coveted Innovative Collaboration Award at the Scottish Enterprise Life Science Awards 2016.

 

The winning collaboration is a multi-party applied research project being conducted by the Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling, led by Professor Hervé Migaud, with support from the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre, leading salmon producers Marine Harvest Scotland and Scottish Sea Farms, and feed manufacturer BioMar.

 

Launched in June 2015, the 42-month project is developing the sustainable farming and deployment of wrasse, a 'cleaner-fish' used on salmon farms to control sea lice. SAIC awarded grant funding of £831,530 to the project, leveraging contributions worth £3.01m from industry and academia.

 

The SE Life Science awards recognise the leading organisations, people and projects in the Scottish life sciences sector. In a globally-recognised sector that employs some 35,000 people and contributes over £3.5 bn a year to the Scottish economy, competition for the awards is tough.

 

“The strength and expertise in Scotland’s life sciences sector is outstanding, so winning this award is huge,” commented Heather Jones, CEO of the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre. “And given that ‘innovation’ and ‘collaboration’ are probably the two words we most use at SAIC, we’re delighted that the award won was the Innovative Collaboration Award.

Premieres at the most important industry gathering fish international grows to 270 exhibitors from 22 nations - Aquaculture Directory

Premieres at the most important industry gathering fish international grows to 270 exhibitors from 22 nations - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The European fish industry meets in the Bremen exhibition halls from Sunday 14 to Tuesday 16 February. At the 15th fish international experts from 22 nations will not only be looking at the latest products and preparations but also at successful marketing strategies.

 

Apart from that the focus will be on new technologies for aquaculture, for processing and for sales. “Interest in Germany’s only trade fair for fish and seafood has grown noticeably”, says a pleased Sabine Wedell, Project Manager at Messe Bremen. Compared to 2014 the number of exhibitors has risen by about 40 to 270. Among the international participants the largest group is the Netherlands with 28 exhibitors, followed by Spain with 20 exhibitors.

 

Since the first event 28 years ago fish international has upheld its reputation as an important meeting place of the industry. This year the symposium “Prospects for the Seafood Industry” will have its debut there. Experts like Hubertus von Wedel (Director of Marketing at Deutsche See) and the trend scout Andrew Fordyce will present new marketing strategies as well as innovative product and packaging ideas.

 

fish international does not only offer a whole host of products and ideas but also the necessary technology for production and trade. A new feature at the fair is the “Smoke House” where experts like Ralf Harms (chef at the marine fish cooking studio in Bremerhaven) or the shooting star of the street food scene, Michael Wickert from Berlin (Glut & Späne), will present innovative recipes and product applications using smoked fish.

 

“The young, hip cuisine is already on its way from the street into the restaurant”, Sabine Wedell tells us. Transgourmet Seafood as the largest exhibitor at fish international will have among its exhibits products for street food – for example pulled salmon.

FDA bans Imports of Genetically Engineered Salmon - For Now - Aquaculture Directory

FDA bans Imports of Genetically Engineered Salmon - For Now - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Genetically engineered salmon won't be hitting U.S. dinner tables anytime soon. Two months after federal regulators approved the nation's first genetically engineered salmon for human consumption, the Food and Drug Administration on Friday issued a ban on the import and sale of the fish until the agency can publish guidelines for how it should be labelled.

 

The FDA's action was prompted by language in a sprawling federal spending bill passed by Congress recently, which instructed regulators to forbid the sale of genetically engineered salmon until the agency finalizes rules about how it should be labeled -- a process that potentially could take years.

 

In November, after a prolonged regulatory battle, the FDA approved the AquAdvantage salmon, produced by Massachusetts-based AquaBounty. The Atlantic salmon contains a growth hormone gene from a Chinook salmon and a gene from the ocean pout -- a combination to help it grow large enough for consumption in 18 months instead of the typical three years. The agency initially said it could require additional labelling of genetically engineered foods only if "there is a material difference -- such as a different nutritional profile" between the altered food and its natural counterpart. In the case of the AquAdvantage salmon, FDA found no such differences.
