* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 4 new features this week:

Invasion From the Deep: Jellyfish Swarms
From the dark depths of the open oceans vast blooms of jellyfish are descending unforseen upon coastal waters worldwide, reports Adam Anson for TheFishSite. As the frequency of these invasions increases, the threat to both tourism and fisheries alike becomes evermore evident, but what has triggered this increase and what can be done to stop it?
Ocean Sensor Technology
As fish farm units (cages) get bigger, producers are using various techniques and equipment to better manage their stocks, says a report in the CONSENSUS brochure: 'Towards Sustainable Aquaculture in Europe'.
Production Methods for Atlantic Salmon
Rapid increases in production have led to falling prices, which in turn have put increasing pressures on producers to limit costs. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations explains how the different systems of production work.
Fishmeal Market Report - November 2008
In the third quarter of the year, fishmeal production was characterized by very limited catches, a normal feature for this period of the year, reports FAO Globefish.
Schering Plough Aquaculture.
