Fisheries Council of Canada Says Government Secrecy on New Fisheries Law Threatens Jobs, Investment

SEAFOODNEWS.COM  [SeafoodNews] October 19, 2017

The 102 year old Fisheries Council of Canada just finished their annual meeting in Ottawa this week and many members expressed concern about the Canadian government's lack of responsiveness to the seafood industry.  

A new fisheries law is being proposed in Parliment, and under the Canadian system, once the party with the parlimentary majority introduces legislation, it is generally passed exactly as written.  But the industry has gotten very little response from the goverment regarding what significant changes might be in thebill, other than a statement that it will likely be the most significant fisheries legislation in Canada in two generations...

SEAFOODNEWS.COM  [SeafoodNews] - October 19, 2017

More overseas companies eager to tap into China’s seemingly insatiable appetite for imported seafood has resulted in Asia’s largest seafood show setting yet another record for square meters of exhibit space.

“Once again this year, most of the growth in the show is due to an increase in the amount of exhibit space in the overseas halls,” says Peter Redmayne, president of Seattle-based Sea Fare Expositions, Inc...

MSC Responds to Criticisms of PNA MSC Tuna Using Vessels That Target both FAD and Free Swimming Fish

SEAFOODNEWS.COM  by John Sackton - October 19, 2017

The Marine Stewardship Council is responding to the criticisms the On the Hook Campaign has made about PNA Tuna .(SeafoodNews October 16th)       

When the PNA purse seine tuna fishery was first certified more than five years ago, it was the first purse seine tuna certification by the MSC.  The certification was only for free swimming tuna, but vessels were allowed to target both free swimming schools and FAD tuna in the same trip, so long as the catches were segregated.

In an widely distributed opinion piece, also published in Seafood News on October 16th, Dr. Megan Bailey laid out the criticism, which was that it was misleading to tell consumers that their tuna was sustainable if the same vessel that caught their MSC tuna also caught tuna that the MSC would not certify...

Newfoundland Snow Crab Survey Likely to Show Further Decline According to DFO Biologists

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [The Telegram]  by Ashley Fitzpatrick October 16, 2017

Once labelled a nuisance, snow crab are now key to Newfoundland and Labradors fishing industry, accounting for $274 million of $708 million in landed value in 2016. And that success story has become a problem.

Higher crab prices are masking lower quota. Shellfish numbers are falling off, with no relief in sight.

Aboard the Canadian Coast Guard ship Vladykov this week, crabs captured in Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) traps were being pulled from the water, dumped into orange, plastic baskets, pulled out, measured and categorized before being dumped back. These were among the last of the crab checked for the 2017 inshore survey, ongoing since May.

Bering Sea Pacific Cod Quota May Drop by a Third for 2018

The data is still preliminary, but a reduction in the catch of Bering Sea Pacific cod for 2018 is all but inevitable. The question is how much, and an early look at survey numbers indicate that it will be about a third lower than 2017. 

The reduction is not as stark as estimates for the P-cod Gulf of Alaska TAC, where preliminary data suggest three sequential year classes of P-cod did not survive to ages 2 or 3 due to conditions brought about by the Blob in 2014-2016. Biologists are estimating that once the data has gone through the model and been peer reviewed, there may be half to two thirds less than last year...

Lawsuit Documents Show Pattern of Collusion Between Commerce and Rec Fishery

Three additional documents have emerged as part of the lawsuit filed against the U.S. Commerce Department that show an intent to end-run normal channels of public comment and regulated processes for regional council activities, only to serve the needs of the sports fishing industry.

The lawsuit, filed by Ocean Conservancy and the Environmental Defense Fund last July, focused on mismanagement of the Gulf Red Snapper fishery, but documents released last week show the recreational industry expects a level of allowance that flies in the face of the legal requirements of the Magnuson Stevens Act, and the processes for managing fisheries that is contained within it.

The documents are part of a 70-page package submitted by the government in response to the plaintiff’s lawsuit. They show clear intent to receive special treatment when it comes to taking more of the annual catch, and broader influence on choosing who sits on the regional management councils ...

The Head of NOAA Fisheries, Chris Oliver, has called for a major paper on IUU fishing published in Marine Policy to be retracted in its entirety due to egregious factual errors and misreporting as regards US fisheries.

The paper, Estimates of Illegal and Unreported Seafood Imports to Japan,  was funded by the Walton Family Foundation (WFF).The lead author, Ganapathiraju Pramod conceived the design, conducted the study, analyzed information and drafted the paper. He has made a career out of constructing a model of trade in illegal fisheries, and has previously published a paper claiming up to 32% of US Fisheries Imports are from IUU fish.

He used the same basic methodology in both papers.  First, he develops estimates for trade flows, including fish processed in 3rd countries.  Then he searches for all possible indications of IUU fishing from news accounts, literature citations, government and fisheries association reports, consultants reports, NGO reports, Oral or Written interviews, and finally, peer reviewed academic papers.

He takes the mishmash of sources and assigns a weight to IUU fishing in each major sourcing area...
