Other Media | FishFarmer: Producers must do better, says welfare group

Thursday, November 30, 2023

Animal welfare campaign group Compassion in World Farming has published a “scorecard” rating the major salmon farmers on their performance – and it argues there is still “a long way to go”.

The Scorecard has evaluated the public policies of eight salmon producers, representing more than 50% of worldwide salmon production, in terms of their transparent reporting of key welfare issues. These are based on assessments made from publicly available company information, rated across 13 welfare parameters including stocking density, humane slaughter, sea lice infestations and mortality. Each parameter is marked independently with the resultant comparison table being based on a five-colour scale, from red to green.

IN BRIEF - Nigeria’s aquaculture has $296bn annual revenue potential – WAS

Thursday, February 22, 2024

The World Aquaculture Society (WAS), African chapter, in the West African region, says Nigeria’s aquaculture sector has the potential to generate an annual revenue of 296 billion dollars.

Mr Lanre Badmus, Director, West African Region, WAS , said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.

Badmus, who lauded President Bola Tinubu’s administration for creating the Ministry of Blue economy and Marine, noted that if well harnessed the sector would increase income generation for the country.

He explained that the opportunities in the maritime sector if well tapped had the potential of generating resources in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.

“The untapped potential of Nigeria’s blue economy can be worth 296 billion dollars, significantly boosting the overall GDP of the country.

“Knowledge, capacity and operational capability should be explored across five primary innovative themes, which include but not limited to technology, scientific, social, political and governance, physical and economic growth,” he said.

IN BRIEF - Russia threatens UK’s cod and haddock supply as Putin pulls out of decades-old fishing deal

Moscow says deal has been struck after UK imposes more sanctions on Russia

Russia is pulling out from a landmark fishing deal struck with Britain in 1956 as a response to further sanctions imposed by the UK.

The deal allowed British vessels into the rich fishing grounds of the Barents Sea, the coast of the Kola Peninsula and along the coast of Kolguyev Island.

The agreement was made in London by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev in May 1956 at a turning point in the Cold War.

In the same year, he denounced Josef Stalin, proposed peaceful co-existence with the West and even visited Britain in April.

Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the State Duma lower house of parliament, said in a statement: “When Nikita Khrushchev accepted this deal in 1956, it is difficult to say what guided him but it was definitely not national interest.

“The British need to study some proverbs: ‘Russians harness the horse slowly, but ride it fast’.”

It comes as Britain on Wednesday imposed sanctions on six individuals in charge of the Arctic penal colony where Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny died last week.

Since the invasion began, Britain has repeatedly placed sanctions on Russia with increasing severity. The sanctions were declared as economic war by Duma, despite the country’s economy growing by 3.6 per cent last year.
