Monday, September 11, 2023

State fisheries officials are advising commercial harvesters to confirm their market prior to fishing, as Prince William Sound purse seine fisheries are anticipated to close for the season next Friday, Sept. 15.

Monday, September 11, 2023

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Customer Services (VDACS) - International Marketing Division sponsored a seafood promotional event bringing in international chefs, food critics and writers to visit a blue catfish processing plant on Aug. 30 in Hampton, Va.

The group toured the processing plant of L. D. Amory Company Inc. one of only three blue catfish processing plants in the state.  Meade Amory of Armory Seafood explained to the group that during the 1970s and ‘80s blue catfish were introduced to the James, Rappahannock and York river basins as a new recreational fish by the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources.

IN BRIEF - A Danish fisherman cost the F/V 'Astrid' too much... three quarters of a million!

Sunday, September 10, 2023

Only two of the crew of five satisfied the Participant Act's requirements for residence. It was one too little. As a result, a catch value of three quarters of a million was confiscated.

The Directorate of Fisheries  carried out an inspection upon landing from the fishing vessel Agderbåten Astrid at Myre Fiskemottak AS on 28 February this year. As part of the control, it was investigated whether the requirements of the Participating Act for the crew's place of residence were met

Advance notice of confiscation was read on the same day that the directorate sent it, without any objections to the notice. As a result of this, the Directorate of Fisheries decided in July to confiscate the value of the catch harvested on the trip in question, a total of NOK 754,422.75 (U$D 70,635).[...]

IN BRIEF - Chinese scientists discover 'sea granary' in Antarctica

Saturday, September 09, 2023

Recently, the Chinese Antarctic scientific expedition team discovered a sea area rich in marine biological resources on the edge of Antarctica , which can be called the "sea granary" of Antarctica.

According to reports, there are at least 10 species of fish, 2 species of birds, and several species of seals and whales living in this sea area. Among them, Antarctic krill reserves are particularly abundant, estimated to be as high as 1 billion tons.

Krill are considered a keystone species by scientists, vital to the Antarctic food chain and a major source of nutrition for whales, seals, penguins, seabirds, squid and fish.

At the same time, Antarctic krill has extremely high nutritional value and has a tonic effect on weak bodies, pregnant women and children. Because of its large biomass and high nutritional value, Antarctic krill is known as the "gold mine of the sea" and is regarded as the "future granary" for mankind to alleviate the resource crisis.

Today, as global marine life faces threats from human activities, Antarctica's ecosystem remains pure and stable due to its scarcity. Scientists call for sustainable management and protection of this precious resource to ensure its long-term use and create a better future for future generations.
