PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The herring fishing industry in the Northeast qualifies for federal assistance because its 2019 season has been declared a disaster.
The federal government has the ability to declare a “fishery disaster” when adverse circumstances in a fishery cause economic hardship. A recent scientific assessment of the herring population found that the species population has fallen, and tighter fishing quotas have made herring fishing more difficult.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced the disaster declaration on Monday. The fishery will be eligible for disaster assistance, and some fishery-related businesses might also qualify for federal loans, the commerce department said.
Herring fishermen caught more than 200 million pounds of herring (90,718 MT) as recently as 2014, but the 2019 catch was less than 25 million (11,339 MT). The fishery is based mostly in Maine and Massachusetts.
The commerce department said the allocation of money will be determined soon.

The use of a particular oil-based vaccine to prevent pancreas disease (PD) in farmed salmon has been linked to the incidence of skeletal deformity in the fish.
The vaccines cause a transient defect in the vertebral growth zone, known as cross-stitch vertebrae, according to new research from Nofima. How the environment impacts further growth of the vertebrae will decide whether a deformity develops or not.
