ISAFE2 - 2nd International Symposium on Aquaculture and Fisheries Education | Hassan | Scoop.it

The 2nd International Symposium on Aquaculture and Fisheries Education (ISAFE2) jointly organized by Asian Fisheries Society (AFS) and Shanghai Ocean University (SHOU) will be convened on SHOU campus at Lingang New City in Shanghai from Wednesday 22nd to Friday 24th April, 2015.

 

The ISAFE2 will once again bring educators, students and training agencies from across the aquaculture and fisheries industries, teaching institutions and education regulatory agencies to discuss many critical issues pertaining to the needs of the industry on the one hand and the issues confronting the training, academic and education regulatory agencies in ensuring a sustainable well-educated industry sector on the other hand in the Asia-Pacific (AP) region.

 

The theme for ISAFE2 is “Better Education, Better Professionals, Better Industry”. The symposium will discuss issues highlighted during ISAFE1 and on-going issues confronting aquaculture and fisheries education in the AP region. It will:

   ● Discuss the current status of aquaculture and fisheries education in the AP countries with special reference to

     √ Curricula and courses;

     √ Accreditations, quality and certification; and

     √ Collaboration and partnership.

   ● Examine the existing and future linkages between AFS and regional educators with international agencies and institutions.

  ● Explore the on-going development of distance education and its impacts on the delivery of aquaculture and fisheries education. Presentation and working language in the symposium will be English. Welcome to Shanghai Ocean University and the fabulous city of Shanghai in April 2015!

SRI LANKA: Sri Lanka, India ministerial level talks on fisheries issue on August 29

SRI LANKA: Sri Lanka, India ministerial level talks on fisheries issue on August 29 | Hassan | Scoop.it

Colombo: Officials from the governments of Sri Lanka, India and Indian state of Tamil Nadu will meet in New Delhi on August 29 to hold a round of official level talks to find a solution to the nagging fishermen's issue.

The officials will meet to discuss sustainable methods of fishing in the waters between Sri Lanka and India.

 

The two countries are expected to find an amicable solution to the thorny issues of fishermen from both countries crossing into each other's territorial waters and subsequent arrests of the fishermen by the authorities on both sides.

 

The spokesman of Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Narendra Rajapaksa has said that Director General of fisheries Nimal Hettiarachchi, Advisor to the Minister Dr. S Subasinghe and Additional Solicitor General Suhada Gamlath will participate in the discussions.

The two countries held ministerial level talks on the issue in January of this year.

 

Following the ministerial level talks on the fishermen issue, representatives of the fishermen's associations in Sri Lanka and India met on two occasions, first on January 20 in Chennai and later on May 12 in Colombo to iron out a solution among themselves to share the resources in the seas between the two countries. However, the second round of discussions ended without reaching any agreements.

DOCUMENT: Status of the World Fisheries for Tuna 2013

DOCUMENT: Status of the World Fisheries for Tuna 2013 | Hassan | Scoop.it

There are 23 stocks of the major commercial tuna species worldwide (6 albacore, 4 bigeye, 4 bluefin, 5 skipjack and 4 yellowfin stocks).

 

This document summarizes the results of the most recent scientific assessments of these stocks, as well as the current management measures adopted by the RFMOs. In addition, this report ranks the status and management of the 23 stocks using a consistent methodology in terms of three factors: Abundance, Exploitation/Management (fishing mortality) and Environmental Impact (bycatch).

 

In 2011, the catch of major commercial tunas was 4.22 million tonnes. Fifty-seven percent of it was skip- jack tuna, followed by yellowfin (26%), bigeye (10%) and albacore (5%). Bluefin tuna accounts for only 1% of the global catch.

 

Globally, 65% of the stocks are at a healthy level of abundance, 26% are overfished and 9% are at an intermediate level. In terms of exploitation, 39% of the stocks are experiencing a low fishing mortality rate, 22% are being over-exploited, and 39% have a high fishing mortality that is being managed adequately.

 

When viewed from the point of view of total catch, 94% of the catch comes from healthy stocks.This is due to the fact that skipjack stocks contribute more than one half of the global catch of tunas, and they are all in a healthy situation. In contrast, most bluefin stocks and 3 out of 6 albacore stocks are overfished, but combined they make a relatively small fraction of the total catch.

INDIA: Boat operators, fisheries experts to meet on Aug. 30

INDIA: Boat operators, fisheries experts to meet on Aug. 30 | Hassan | Scoop.it

The rise in the cost of fishing operations and fish production cost across the country were grave concerns for the fishing industry in India.

 

Fisheries experts and boat operators will meet here on August 30 and 31 under the aegis of All India Mechanised Fishing Boat Operators’ Association to discuss, among other things, their worries about increasingly poor remuneration from fishing expeditions and dwindling fish catch.

 

The two-day programme was being organised as part of the Boat Operators’ Association annual conference, said the General Secretary of All Kerala Fishing Boat Operators’ Association Joseph Xavier Kalappurakkal here in a statement.

 

He said the rise in the cost of fishing operations and fish production because of increasing diesel cost and the lack of uniformity in build and size of boats across the country were grave concerns for the fishing industry in India.

 

He said it was high time that an all-India standard was evolved for the manufacturing of boats with the capacity of the engines and the boat’s dimensions being taken into consideration.

 

The programmes are scheduled at the CIFNET Conference Hall, Fine Arts Hall Road. Minister for Fisheries and Ports K. Babu will inaugurate the programmes. K. V. Thomas, MP; S. Sarma, MLA and national president of FIFI Y. G. K. Moorthi are expected to be present.

EVENT: 25–30 May 2014, Queensland, Australia - International Symposium o Fish Nutrition and Feeding (ISFNF2014)

EVENT: 25–30 May 2014, Queensland, Australia - International Symposium o Fish Nutrition and Feeding (ISFNF2014) | Hassan | Scoop.it

Welcome to ISFNF 2014

 

Australia is proud to be hosting the 16th International Symposium on Fish Nutrition and Feeding (ISFNF XVI), the premier international forum for researchers, academics and industry concerned with the nutrition and feeding of aquatic animals. This biennial event will see several hundred attendees from around the world converge on the tropical city of Cairns for five days between 25–30 May 2014, adjacent to Australia’s magnificent Great Barrier Reef and the fabulous Daintree Rainforest.


High quality contributions are now being sought on key ‘Themes’ that progress the development of science in the nutrition and feeding of aquatic animals and that stimulate innovation in the world’s growing aquaculture industries. As aquaculture now supplies more than half the world’s edible seafood, development of sustainable feeds that support the growth of this industry and the ever present challenges of global food security will become increasingly important. Symposia such as the ISFNF are critical in meeting these challenges as they provide a forum for contributors to present research and innovative technologies that will ultimately play an important role in meeting the challenge of supplying increasing quantities of feed to the burgeoning aquaculture sector.

An event not to be missed by researchers, academics and industry – ISFNF XVI will be an opportunity to discuss and debate the current and looming issues faced by the fish nutrition sector and to develop innovative and novel ways to overcome them.

As with most ISFNF events there will be plenty of opportunity to network, socialise and collaborate during both formal and informal functions. We consider this element of the Symposium to be so important that we have planned a ‘gap day’ in the middle of the structured program to encourage all participants to network and to provide an opportunity to explore this amazing part of the world.

So, on behalf of the ISFNF 2014 Organising Committee, we look forward to seeing you in Cairns, on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
