“Cetmar Foundation and its partners in the ClimeFish project this week presented in Scotland the first prototype of the decision-taking support tool on the effects of climate change on fisheries and aquaculture.
This new software, which will be effective in the spring of 2019, will provide information on the different species analyzed by ClimeFish experts through the 16 case studies that are being developed within the framework of the project.
It will also incorporate the suggestions made by the agents interested in each fishery or farming, with which they are working together.”

“Written by Kevin Bailey, a marine fisheries biologist, Fishing Lessons is a small book with an urgent plea for readers, seafood consumers, and society in general to pay more attention to the challenges faced by artisanal fisheries, where much of the fish used for human consumption is caught. Although definitions vary among countries, artisanal fishers usually rely on small, owner-operated boats of less than 12 meters and deploy in coastal waters a variety of gears to catch fish for local sale rather than for their own consumption.”

Turning Birds into Spies Against Illegal Fishing

“Drones, spy planes, and satellites dot the sky, tracking elusive subjects on land and at sea. Sometimes their targets are military operatives or shady characters. In other cases, the technologies have been adapted by scientists to uncover the secrets of wild animals. Ecologist Henri Weimerskirch has combined the two. In a novel study, the scientist turned wild wandering albatrosses into spies, using the animals’ natural movements to track illegal fishing.”

“In 1999, Cabo Pulmo, Mexico, was “an underwater desert,” says marine ecologist Enric Sala. The region’s fishing industry had depleted the waters of fish and nearly its entire marine ecosystem. So the fishermen made a radical decision: to stop fishing entirely. They created a national park in the sea, a massive no-fishing zone across the whole depleted area. Ten years later, Sala says, “what had been an underwater barren was now a kaleidoscope.” Fish had returned en masse, as had large predators and underwater flora.”

Resultado de imagem para nature journal logo“Approximately 5.25 trillion plastic pieces are floating at the sea surface. The impact of plastic pollution on the lowest trophic levels of the food web, however, remains unknown. Here we show that plastics release dissolved organic carbon (DOC) into the ambient seawater stimulating the activity of heterotrophic microbes. Our estimates indicate that globally up to 23,600 metric tons of DOC are leaching from marine plastics annually. About 60% of it is available to microbial utilization in less than 5 days. If exposed to solar radiation, however, this DOC becomes less labile.”

UK, Ireland top EU countries ignoring scientific advice on Atlantic fishing“The UK and Ireland are ignoring scientific advice on fishing limits in the Atlantic, getting around EU quotas by increasing their overall catch to unsustainable levels, according to new research.
A report by the New Economics Foundation (NEF) found that Ireland, the UK, Belgium, and the Netherlands have the highest percentage of their fishing quotas for 2018 in excess of scientific advice.
In terms of the total tonnage of catch, the UK is the worst offender, at 79,893 tonnes above scientific advice, followed by Ireland, the Netherlands, Denmark and Spain, it says.”

“I’m still fairly new to the fisheries game in New England, but one thing I’ve learned is that the New England Fishery Management Council isn’t exactly a risk-averse group. In fact, they seem to gravitate towards risk when long-term gains are measured against short-term sacrifices. This is especially evident in the groundfish fishery.
New England’s groundfish fishery is a particularly tricky one to manage, and I don’t envy those who are faced with the task. But when it comes to Atlantic cod—still persistently overfished and subject to overfishing in the Gulf of Maine after 28 years of management – you just have to ask, what are they thinking?”

Using a wider analytical perspective, researchers can disclose a more diverse picture of development opportunities, threats, and conflicts for small scale fisheries than researches commonly do.

How To Take The Risk Out Of Sustainable Fishery Investments

Resultado de imagem para forbes“We are missing a huge opportunity to solve global overfishing and food security problems around the world for the billions of people who depend on seafood for their survival and the oceans for their livelihood. If managed sustainably, wild fisheries have the potential to yield more fish in the water, more food on the plate and more prosperity for fishing communities, but a large funding gap—about $200 billion—exists to finance the transition to sustainable fishing. Risk is a key barrier to attracting this scale of capital—as investors seek to understand and prepare for risks inherent in fishing businesses.”

Vulnerable birds will be unable to shift their breeding seasons as the climate warms, according to a study carried out by Scottish scientists.
Rising sea temperatures in coming decades could create a mismatch between breeding periods and times when prey is most plentiful. “

Overfishing of krill is disrupting Antarctic food chains

Ice floating on the sea in Antarctica.“Krill oil, rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, is a popular nutritional supplement around the world. However, according to a recent report from Greenpeace, growing demand is fueling commercial fishing in Antarctica’s icy waters that could make it harder for all kinds of polar marine life to survive climate change threats.
A tiny cold-water-living crustacean, krill isn’t eaten by humans. It is fished in parts of Antarctica’s Southern Ocean to make nutritional supplements as well as pet, livestock, poultry, and aquaculture feed. But polar marine wildlife—including penguins, seals, whales, fish, and birds—also depend on krill as a major part of their diet. The Southern Ocean teems with an estimated 379 million metric tons of krill.”

Our model, calibrated with data from multi-vessel and aircraft surveys, predicted at least 79 (45–129) thousand tonnes of ocean plastic are floating inside an area of 1.6 million km2; a figure four to sixteen times higher than previously reported. We explain this difference through the use of more robust methods to quantify larger debris.”

Unprecedented attention is now focused on the mountains of waste plastics accumulating in our oceans and the environmental damage they wreak. It’s forcing business and research institutions to speed up their search for viable material alternatives – biodegradable plastics or plastics made from waste or sustainable bioproducts.”
