IN BRIEF - Russian fishermen are increasing their capelin catch in the Barents Sea

Wednesday, March 15, 2023

According to the industry monitoring system, by March 14, 2023, the capelin catch in the Northern Fisheries Basin amounted to 21 thousand tons, or 85.4% of the national quota of the Russian Federation, which is almost 17% higher than in 2022.

Based on the results of the 52nd session of the Joint Russian-Norwegian Fisheries Commission (SRC, October 2022), the national quota of Russia was agreed in the amount of 24.6 thousand tons and distributed among 21 Russian users of aquatic biological resources.

During the reporting period, 5-6 vessels were fishing in the exclusive economic zone of Russia and one vessel in Norwegian waters.

The catches are dominated by capelin of good size: males - 17-17.5 cm, females - 15.2-15.5 cm.

IN BRIEF - FAO | Small pelagics: Capelin

Wednesday, March 15, 2023

Iceland’s Marine and Freshwater Research Institute (MFRI) has recommended a sizable cut in the capelin fishing in Icelandic waters for the 2022/2023 season. 

For the 2021/2022 season, MFRI originally suggested a total allowable catch (TAC) of 400 000 tonnes, but later revised this upwards to 904 000 tonnes, amount which at a later stage was reduced to 869 600tonnes.

For the 2022/2023 season, MFRI suggested a TAC of 400 000 tonnes. But again, they revised this advice in the course of the year down to just 218 400 tonnes. This would represent a 75 percent reduction from the final TAC of 2021/2022.

Russian and Norwegian scientists have agreed on a slight reduction in the Barents Sea capelin quota for 2023. The capelin stock has grown very little over the past 12 months, and they consequently suggested that the TAC be reduced from 70 000 tonnes in 2022 to 62 000 tonnes in 2023. This quota is divided between the Russian Federation and Norway, with 40 percent for the Russian Federation (24 800 tonnes) and Norway 60 percent (37 200 tonnes). The Russian Federation and Norway continue their dialogue on fishing quotas despite the conflict in Ukraine.

IN BRIEF - Viruses infecting shrimp farms in the Pacific and Gulf of Mexico are being monitored

Wednesday, March 15, 2023

White spot virus affects shrimp size

Farmed shrimp production is an important source of income for Mexican aquaculturists, but this activity is threatened by infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHHNV) and white spot virus (WSSV) infection, which negatively affect the health of crustaceans and cause serious economic problems.

Faced with this situation, the Laboratory of Immunology and Molecular Biology of the Cinvestav Unit Mérida, headed by Rossanna Rodríguez Canul, has carried out studies in conjunction with other institutions in the country, both in the Pacific and the Atlantic, with the purpose of observing the health conditions of the farmed and wild-sourced shrimp.

In addition, the laboratory is monitoring the north coast of the Yucatan peninsula and has found that two species of wild shrimp are infected with IHHNV in a port in the state of Yucatan, which suggests the need for more exhaustive epidemiological studies on these species. virus in the Gulf of Mexico.

Inspired by a personal aversion to peeling prawns

In the interview, one of the students candidly shared that the inspiration behind the useful contraption came from a personal aversion to peeling prawns.

The students hoped that the device can also help children and the elderly who have trouble deshelling prawns.

Made using a 3D printer

Using a 3D printer and with the support of their teacher, their vision was brought to life.

The group had tried and failed a total of seven times, before coming up with a feasible design that could be successfully constructed.

IN BRIEF - PNG to implement new standard certification for fishing crews: Association

Tuesday, March 14, 2023

PAPUA New Guinea is to implement new standard certification for fishing vessel crews, says Fishing Industry Association president and chairman Sylvester Pokajam.

It launched the fairness, integrity, safety and health standard certification on Friday.

The standard certification was developed to make sure that fishing vessel crew members were treated fairly in terms of their welfare.

Pokajam said it cost US$50,000 (about K171,268) to get the certification but that it was worth the investment, as it was like buying into the premium market.

“This certification is a step forward (as) the European Union will only buy Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified fish now,” he said.

“It took us a little over two years from 2018 to 2020 to attain this certificate from the MSC.

“All members of the association will now enjoy the benefits of the market.”

All association vessel are covered under the certificate.

The annual fee for the certification is US$15,000 (about K51,380).

National Fisheries Authority executive manager, licensing and information system Leban Gisawa said the standard was important in promoting best practices for fishing vessel crews, saying that labour laws needed to protect them too.
