                                   TAMING THE BLUE FRONTIER

                   Conservation Magazine, University of Washington 

http://conservationmagazine.org/2009/04/taming-the-blue-frontier/

Ten thousand years ago, humans made the shift on land from hunting and gathering to farming. Now the same transformation is taking place at sea....

   Many of today’s coastal fish farms have decimated habitat and spread disease into local fish populations. Making matters worse, fish farms represent a net drain on populations of wild fish, which are often caught just so they can be ground into feed for salmon and other species.

   Despite these concerns, a shift is underway. Some members of the environmental community are concluding that widespread aquaculture must be pursued if we are to save the oceans and feed the planet. Aquaculture production must double by 2050 just to keep up with per capita demand. But merely scaling up current methods would only exacerbate the problems.

   In other words, the world needs new, sustainable aquaculture practices, and it needs them fast. It took 10,000 years for domestic agriculture to transform the land, but viable ocean farming schemes must be developed in one one-hundredth of that time if they are to forestall the oceans’ demise. This urgency is spurring some leading environmentalists and scientists to lend their knowledge and support, instead of their opposition. In a recent lecture, the renowned marine ecologist Jeremy Jackson discussed the threat of overfishing and announced, “the most important scientific challenge we now face is how to make aquaculture ecologically sustainable.”... http://conservationmagazine.org/2009/04/taming-the-blue-frontier/

 ▶ SALMON FARM 'KILLING OFF WILD STOCK'  "...since 1989 (we have known) that the collapse of sea trout populations in West Highland Scotland was being driven by the large numbers of sea lice associated with the cage rearing of salmon. “It is a problem which continues to get worse and also greatly depletes salmon populations in fjordic systems.
   “Efforts to reduce sea louse numbers to levels which do not threaten the wild fish have failed dismally, despite the large-scale use of dangerous chemicals which ultimately threaten the valuable lobster, prawn and crab fisheries of the Highlands and Islands.
    “Add to this assault on sea trout and salmon populations the effects of bacterial and virus disease and the widely reported problem of genetic introgression. Healthy wild sea trout and salmon populations cannot exist in the presence of the cage-reared salmon.”  http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotland/top-stories/salmon-farms-killing-off-wild-stock-1-3382113

▶ SCOTTISH FISH FARMERS USE RECORD AMOUNTS OF PARASITE PESTICIDES. Farmers have been forced to increase amount of chemicals as the sea lice parasite becomes resistant to treatment AQUA FARMS CRAM FISH INTO SMALL SPACES (#CAFOs) The chemicals used are highly toxic to many marine species, especially crustaceans. The treatments use organophosphates, which attack the nervous system of sea lice and teflubenzuron, which interferes with their ability to grow shells. Marine scientists have shown the chemical is extremely threatening to young lobsters, crabs and prawns, Staniford said.... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/sep/10/scottish-fish-farmers-parasite-pesticide

 

NPR, January 3o, 2012 -- INSANITY - CATCH FISH TO FEED FISH!
 ▶ WILD PACIFIC MACKEREL STOCKS THAT FEED FARMED SALMON IN MASSIVE DECLINE.

Farmed salmon, that ubiquitous pink fish decorated with ribbons of fat, can thank the forage fish of the southern Pacific ocean – like anchovy and jack mackerel – for their calorie-rich diet. Indeed, more than 5 pounds of jack mackerel typically can go towards raising one pound of farmed salmon. But that food supply – and the ocean ecosystem that supports it — may be in peril, according to a new report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. According to scientists the ICIJ spoke to, "supertrawler" fishing vessels from Asia, Europe and Latin America have contributed to a 63 percent decline in jack mackerel stocks since 2006. At the current rate of overfishing, the world's stock of jack mackerel, which is largely located off the coast of Chile, could collapse soon.

- ▶ ENCLOSING THE AQUATIC COMMONS IN BRAZIL - AQUACULTURE: THE PARTITIONING OF BRAZIL'S OCEAN AND RIVERS THREATENS SMALL-SCALE FISHING FAMILIES. The federal government has implemented a plan for privatizing water resources that can then be used by private companies for fish farming, and its objective is to produce 20 million tons of fish annually through aquaculture. Privatizing the water in this way enables companies to intensively produce one type of fish in an area, without the fish having to compete with other species for food and space. Raising fish through aquaculture, however, requires the use of countless chemicals and has led to the displacement of small-scale fishermen and women. http://truth-out.org/news/item/27824-the-partitioning-of-brazil-s-ocean-and-rivers-threatens-small-scale-fishing-families

FREE RANGE FISH: THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROMISE OF OPEN OCEAN FISH FARMS? open ocean fish farms may be the solution to a whole range of environmental problems. Not the crowded, close-to-shore pens where fish are trapped like caged chickens, requiring doses of antibiotics which leak, along with the concentrated wastes, into surrounding water. But submersible net pens, more than 150 feet apart, where ocean currents disperse waste, and fish swim and live in the closest possible approximation to their natural habitat.

        CAN WE DOMESTICATE WILD FISH -- AND SHOULD WE?'

Fish Swim Freely In the Ocean Playing A Crucial role in the natural bio ecosystem that supports life on our  planet.  When the ocean is out of balance, so is the planet...playing a major part in climate change.

Factory-Farming Fish in cramped, almost motionless quarters cannot be healthy and breeds a more, bigger, faster profit mentality as great expense to both the health of humans, fish and environment.

Fed with either depleted ocean wild stock or gmo soy unnatural foods, they are not bred by natural selection as they would in the wild but highly inbred in captivity. Just as hatchery bred fish was not the answer for depleted wild salmon runs and the dam devastations , neither is this human interference with natural selection for the food we consume.. They also are fed antibiotics and require pesticides for lice that must be used when raised in confined cages in large quantities which the fish ingest and we eat.

This is another huge, corporate animal corporate factory farming business where the bottom-line and profits drives decisions and, as with the mega pig and chicken factory farms, where profits override the welfare and health of the animals "produced" for human consumption, here we have NO regulations, NO Oversight, NO labeling in place.

Corporate trawlers have already emptied out and wrecked our oceans.

WE MAY BE THE LAST GENERATION TO CATCH FOOD FROM THE OCEANS http://sco.lt/8uHn7Z

 

So... what are we eating?  Have we simply sacrificed our oceans for another huge global corporate business that writes its' own laws and keeps fed on the glowing public relations wheel until we have completely ravaged the environment, nature, and her natural, crucial biodiversity to the point of extinction and humans get sicker and sicker along with the planet? Deforestation, resource extractions, poisoning of our soils, water and food, massive extinction of our animals and wildlife...all for the bottom line...have created a massive imbalance in our biosphere producing climate change..remember this.  Perhaps, this time, we can get ahead of the game and create a truly sustainable, legal value-based practice that is for the good of all species on this planet, not just for Wall Street @pdjmoo

USDA RELEASES FINAL GMO LABELING STANDARD

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Thursday announced its long-awaited rule on the labeling of foods containing genetically engineered, or GMO, ingredients. Just don't expect the letters GMO to appear on these products.

Under the new "National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard," such items will feature the term "bioengineered" or BE foods.

 ▶ FDA CLOSER TO APPROVING BIOTECH SALMON, CRITICS FURIOUS 

Critics say the new salmon is a "dangerous experiment" considered as a new "animal drug application" not food, and have pressured the FDA to reject it. They say the FDA has relied on outdated science and substandard methods for assessing the new fish. "We are deeply concerned that the potential of these fish to cause allergic reactions has not been adequately researched," said Michael Hansen, a scientist at the Consumers Union. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/21/us-usa-fish-gmo-idUSBRE8BK16O20121221?feedType=RSS&feedName=healthNews
