“In the long-standing dispute about the Parliament’s powers as co-legislator in the domain of fisheries policy, the Advocate General of the Court of Justice (ECJ) on Thursday supported the Parliament’s plea that the Council was wrong in splitting the proposal for a multiannual cod plan and adopting part of it single-handedly in December 2012, side-lining the Parliament. The contested regulation “was adopted on the wrong legal basis”, he writes, concluding that the law should be annulled.”

Vol 119 - GRP smallWomen participate in all segments of the seafood industry, including fishing, farming, trading and selling, monitoring and administration. But the widespread lack of consideration for their role and work in the seafood industry is, in many respects, disadvantageous to them and ultimately bars them from participating fully and equitably in the industry.

The primary aim of this report is to increase awareness of business leaders and policy makers, to expand their knowledge and sensitization about the value women bring to the seafood industry, and to encourage them to consider each time they develop a new project or a policy: “Have we not overlooked women?

“The main Bluefin Tuna fishing season runs from 26 May to 24 June; this is when large vessels, purse seiners, are allowed to fish for Bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean and the Eastern Atlantic. This year, for the first time since the establishment of the Bluefin tuna recovery plan in 2006, there is a marked increase in the quota that the European Union is allowed to fish (over 9,372 tonnes). This is due to the progressive recovery of the stock, as demonstrated by scientific evidence, which led to an increase of 20% of the overall quota for Bluefin tuna. European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, said: “Bluefin tuna, an emblematic stock nearing collapse, is back to life. For the first time in almost a decade, our fishermen can benefit with an increased quota. Sustainability and good management pay off. We must continue on this route.”

Mysterious giant sharks may be everywhere

index“They can be as big as great white sharks, but that’s about as far as the comparison goes. Their maximum speed is a lethargic 1.7 miles per hour, many are almost blind, and they are happy to eat rotting carcasses. They may be common throughout the ocean, but you’ve probably never heard of them. Meet the Greenland shark.”

Hong Kong Says No to Shark Fin Soup

The welcome news comes from a survey conducted by the Social Sciences Research Centre of the University of Hong Kong. The work was done in collaboration with BLOOM, a marine conservation organization, and supported by The Pew Charitable Trusts, as a follow-up to a similar study in 2009.”

Warm-blooded fish traps its own heat in the deep

_83018484_83018483“The large and colourful opah has become the first known “warm-blooded” fish, as scientists discovered it can regulate the temperature of its whole body.

The opah traps warmth from its flapping fins, which are well insulated by fat.

It uses that heat to keep its heart, brain and other organs warm while it swims to depths of hundreds of metres.

Other fish like tuna can warm specific body parts, boosting performance at key times, but whole-body “endothermy” has not been observed in a fish before.

The research is published in the journal Science.”

journal.pone.0122809.g003“Pursuit of the triple bottom line of economic, community and ecological sustainability has increased the complexity of fishery management; fisheries assessments require new types of data and analysis to guide science-based policy in addition to traditional biological information and modeling. We introduce the Fishery Performance Indicators (FPIs), a broadly applicable and flexible tool for assessing performance in individual fisheries, and for establishing cross-sectional links between enabling conditions, management strategies and triple bottom line outcomes. Conceptually separating measures of performance, the FPIs use 68 individual outcome metrics—coded on a 1 to 5 scale based on expert assessment to facilitate application to data poor fisheries and sectors—that can be partitioned into sector-based or triple-bottom-line sustainability-based interpretative indicators. Variation among outcomes is explained with 54 similarly structured metrics of inputs, management approaches and enabling conditions. Using 61 initial fishery case studies drawn from industrial and developing countries around the world, we demonstrate the inferential importance of tracking economic and community outcomes, in addition to resource status.”

When Humans Declared War on Fish

10FISH-master675“ON Friday we humans observed V-E Day, the end to one part of a global catastrophe that cost the planet at least 60 million lives. But if we were fish, we would have marked the day differently — as the beginning of a campaign of violence against our taxonomic classes, one that has resulted in trillions of casualties.

Oddly, the war itself was a great reprieve for many marine species. Just as Axis and Allied submarines and mines made the transportation of war matériel a highly perilous endeavor, they similarly interfered with fishing. The ability to catch staple seafoods, like cod, declined markedly. Freed from human pursuit, overexploited species multiplied in abundance.”

Peixe morto apanhado no rio Tejo

Há uma semana era a espuma junto ao açude de Abrantes e Barragem de Belver. Na passada terça-feira, 12 de Maio, foi a vez do presidente da Câmara Municipal de Mação, Vasco Estrela, denunciar o aparecimento de centenas de peixes mortos junto à Barragem de Belver. O autarca de Mação explicou à Lusa que o episódio “não é de hoje nem pontual”.

Vasco Estrela revelou que a autarquia tem recebido “de forma recorrente queixas dos munícipes sobre os maus cheiros da água do rio Tejo, para além do fraco caudal e do seu mau aspeto, de cor acastanhada e com bastante espuma. Ao que tudo indica, os peixes mortos ficaram retidos nas grelhas que impedem os resíduos e lixo de entrarem nas turbinas de produção de eletricidade.

O presidente de Mação revelou ainda que a eventual fonte de poluição das águas do Tejo não estará em território português, já que os peixes terão vindo mortos ao sabor da corrente. “Isto não pode continuar assim”, afirmou o autarca à agência Lusa, adiantando que vai ser apresentada uma queixa na Agência Portuguesa de Ambiente (APA) para que a entidade investigue o que é que se está a passar no maior rio nacional.

De referir que os peixes, alguns com mais de três quilos, segundo testemunho de um pescador local, foram retirados esta terça-feira por funcionários da EDP, que trabalham na Barragem de Belver/Ortiga, sendo depois enterrados em valas abertas com recurso a uma retroescavadora. Contudo, sabe-se terá sido entregue na APA uma outra informação que poderia levar à realização de análises efetuadas à água do Tejo ou mesmo amostras desta. Algumas pessoas contactadas revelaram que poderá estar em causa falta de oxigénio nas águas do rio.

bc-sitec23nw1BC Hydro will test fish for mercury contamination this summer on the waterways connected to a massive hydro dam reservoir. The study is being launched in response to concerns raised by First Nations, who say their food fishery has been ruined.

The plan highlights how little has been done to understand potential health risks of mercury contamination stemming from the dam’s construction in 1968. It has been 15 years since a sample of fish in the Williston reservoir was checked, and 25 years since fish in any of its tributaries were tested.

Status of marine fish stocks (CSI 032/MAR 007)

image_xlarge“Approximately 60% of commercial fish landings comes from stocks that are assessed with Good Environmental Status (GES) information. Strong regional differences exist, where the Mediterranean and Black seas remain poorly assessed.

Around 58% of the assessed commercial stocks are not in GES. Only 12% are in GES for both the level of fishing mortality and reproductive capacity. These percentages also vary considerably between regional seas.

The use of commercial fish and shellfish stocks in Europe, therefore, remains largely unsustainable. Nevertheless, important signs of improvement for certain stocks are being recorded in the North-East Atlantic Ocean and Baltic Sea.”

A report published today by Greenpeace exposes widespread fraud involving Chinese companies fishing in West Africa, both with vessels flying the Chinese flag and vessels operating under joint ventures. Based on information obtained by Greenpeace primarily in Senegal, Guinea Bissau and the Republic of Guinea (Conakry), the report shows that China’s biggest distant water fishing company, the China National Fisheries Corporation (CNFC), as well as other Chinese companies, have systematically under-declared the gross tonnage (GT) of their fishing vessels for years.

“Studland Bay is an unlikely battleground. The sandy shore, part of England’s southern coastline, is both a beauty spot and the site of “the most popular naturist beach in Britain”. More importantly forNature-ists, the seagrass that thrives in the bay’s shallow waters is home to rare sea-horse populations. But keeping it that way is a growing challenge, because Studland is also a playground for the wealthy and powerful, including some yacht-club members who like to anchor their boats there, to the possible detriment of the natural habitat.”

Mar: assim não vamos lá – Ricardo Serrão Santos

“Considero-me um privilegiado por ter nascido numa época em que pude usufruir do mar ainda com um sentido de aventura. E por viver numa nova época em que o conhecimento e as tecnologias permitem olhar profundamente. Atualmente, estamos a desvendar os segredos das mais ínfimas moléculas e até o modo de funcionamento dos mega-ecossistemas.

Durante a minha vida, tive a sorte de estar envolvido no estudo do grande Atlântico a bordo dos mais modernos navios oceanográficos. Realizei mergulhos a grandes profundidades em submersíveis tripulados. Tive a sorte de viver numa época onde a cooperação científica estava a crescer sob a égide do “Direito Internacional do Mar”, que apela a uma utilização sustentável e pacífica dos oceanos, baseada no conhecimento científico. Durante esse tempo, uma geração de cientistas inventariou a biodiversidade marinha, estudou a conectividade e os complexos saldos biogeoquímicas envolvidos no funcionamento dos ecossistemas marinhos. Ao longo de 30 anos, experimentei a singularidade, a diversidade e a fragilidade destes ecossistemas oceânicos. Durante este período, aprendi também como as atividades humanas tiveram impactos na estrutura, diversidade, função e serviços dos ecossistemas marinhos.”

Green Growth in Fisheries and Aquaculture

512015031m“This report summarises the current situation in fisheries and aquaculture, observing that in many parts of the world these sectors are at risk and do not reach their full potential. However, the prospects for sustained growth are good if reforms along the lines suggested by the OECD Green Growth Strategy are undertaken. The report emphasises the need for a strong, science-based approach to stock management for resource sustainability, combined with a transparent and reactive policy development cycle to ensure that fisheries deliver maximum possible benefits. The report shows that improved regulation to deal with environmental externalities and space competition is key to unlocking future growth potential of aquaculture.”
