IN BRIEF - Fishery groups reminded to apply to £145k salmon fund

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Fishery and community groups aiming to save Scotland’s iconic wild salmon have been urged to bid for a share of a £145,000 funding pot.

Salmon Scotland has issued a reminder to organisations and projects that they have until March 31 to apply to its ‘wild fisheries fund’.

The fund is part of a £1.5 million commitment from Scotland's salmon farmers to support the conservation, restoration, and sustainable management of wild salmon populations.

Projects which receive grants will aim to stem the decades-long decline in wild fish numbers through habitat protection, protection from predators, and restocking programmes.

Habitat loss and rising river temperatures – primarily due to climate change – have impacted on wild salmon and sea trout populations throughout the UK and all over the Scottish coastline.

Earlier this year, Frosta, a leading German manufacturer of frozen products, launched NPD vegan fish fingers across major German retailers, after three years of development.

Additionally, despite the overall frozen fish market sharply declining sales, Frosta’s fish sticks were “the darlings of the public,” becoming an increasingly popular choice among consumers, reported the company.

Described as “indistinguishable” from the classics, the vegan product targets the growing flexitarian consumer in Germany. It is manufactured at an exclusive production line at Frosta’s facility in the seaside town of Bremerhaven.[continues...]

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — A lawsuit filed by a Washington oyster farmer accusing a former county deputy of falsifying an arrest report and urging a person to lie during a domestic-violence investigation has been settled for $250,000.

CHILE
Tuesday, June 06, 2023

Close to a thousand vessels, the majority associated with the aquaculture industry and passenger transport in the southern southern zone of the country, are potential objects of transformation of their energy generation systems to incorporate alternative sources that complement diesel consumption.

A study that has just finished at the Universidad Austral de Chile allows this campus to provide shipowners with advice for the design and implementation of these hybrid systems that contribute to reducing the emissions of polluting gases from the combustion of fossil fuel and allow savings of operational costs.
