Old Industries Get New Looks

85 years old and still going strong, the World Organisation for Animal Health celebrated it's anniversary by renewing and strengthening their commitments. The Assembly proceeded to elect a new President of the Assembly of OIE Delegates. Dr Correa Messuti from Uruguay was elected President for a three-year term of office.

Restructuring was also on the cards for fish farming company NIREUS. A change was announced in the Board of Directors of the Norwegian listed company MARINE FARMS ASA, in which the group controls, directly and indirectly, 33.34 per cent. A new set of objectives was approved amongst the major shareholders.

Bold changes were also made by Clearwater Seafoods Limited Partnership this week, having agreed on a CA$57 million loan to bear interest at market rates and be secured by mortgages and charges on all property. Clearwater currently has outstanding debt facilities of approximately CA$95 million.

* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 4 new features this week:

Cracking the Demise of Oysters
Oysters were once a dominant feature in temperate estuaries all around the world, but centuries of intensive fishing has decimated their populations. Now, renewed awareness of their importance has gained limelight, and aquaculture may play an essential role in their survival, writes Adam Anson, TheFishSite.
Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation Annual Report
2008 was a significant year in the history of the Scottish salmon farming industry, not least because of the continued growth in production, but also because it is now widely recognised that production standards have improved. Adam Anson, TheFishSite, summarises this annual report by the Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation.
A Little Science, a Lot More Fish
Lives of Nepal's subsistence fish farmers dramatically improved with help from an MU professor, some science and vertical cages, writes Randy Mertens, Missouri University.
Fishmeal Market Report - May 2009
In 2008, the fishmeal production in the world’s major producing countries declined somewhat, writes Helga Josupeit in this Food and Agriculture Organisation Globefish report.
