JAPAN: Vietnam lifts radiation inspection on Japanese food imports

JAPAN: Vietnam lifts radiation inspection on Japanese food imports | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

TOKYO - Vietnam lifted earlier this month a radiation inspection requirement for fresh food imported from Japan, ending the measure taken after the Fukushima nuclear meltdown in 2011, according to the agriculture ministry.

 

The measure, removed Sept. 1, had required that all imported fresh food originating from Fukushima, Ibaraki, and Tochigi prefectures be checked for radioactive materials and that samples of fresh food items from other parts of Japan be checked for radiation. Vietnam no longer considers the measure necessary, the ministry said Tuesday.

 

Japan's Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi had asked the Vietnamese authorities to lift the regulation during his visit to the country in May.

Algeria - New Shrimp Farming Project in Sahara Desert, S. Korea technical leader... | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

By 2014, there will be a new technology that allows marine shrimp farming in the middle of the Sahara desert. South Korea is the main leader of this project, as it agreed to funnel its technology and capital into the desert-based cultivation of shrimp.

This shrimp farming project is part of the economic cooperation partnership between Korea and Algeria, and the success of the project can further cement bilateral relations. The shrimp farming project in Algeria’s Saharan desert had officially begun on May 20th, said the Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MIFAFF).

CANADA: CFIA can’t eradicate salmon virus

CANADA: CFIA can’t eradicate salmon virus | FOOD TECHNOLOGY  NEWS | Scoop.it

In the wake of four recent major outbreaks of the deadly infectious salmon anaemia (ISA) in Atlantic waters surrounding Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has said that it can’t eradicate the disease.

 

Karen Crocker, spokesperson for the St Mary’s Bay Coastal Alliance, said: “The Canadian and provincial governments must immediately put in place programmes and policies which will prevent yet more serious outbreaks of this pernicious disease.”

 

ISA been shown to create a 90% mortality rate in Atlantic salmon and can also infect cod, herring and brown trout.

 

Outbreaks in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in 2012 and 2013 resulted in CFIA ordering the slaughter of more than one million salmon along with huge compensation claims.

 

Scientists are saying that the four most recent outbreaks involve previously unknown versions of the virus.

 

In the most recent outbreak, New Brunswick-based Cooke Aquaculture announced that it would be selling two million pounds of its ISA contaminated salmon on the consumer market - there is as yet no known evidence it can affect humans.

 

Scientists say that the most effective short-term method for ISA prevention in open pen net salmon farms is adherence to strict siting guidelines for cages. The problem is that the siting guidance, which requires a minimum spacing of three kilometers between salmon feedlot sites, is often ignored.

 

According to some, complaints to the Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture (NSDFA) about the dangers of overcrowding have been ignored.

 

More than 100 organisations recently appealed to Nova Scotia premier Darrell Dexter for a moratorium on salmon farm development until the disease is under control - they want the Nova Scotia government to suspend the initial stocking of the Jordan Bay site scheduled for this spring until comprehensive bio-security regulations are put in place.
