Editorial: Tilapia - Not So Sustainable

Tilapia - the so called 'sustainable' fish - are causing problems for native fish in the islands of Fiji.

A new study suggests that tilapia are eating the larvae and juvenile fish of several native species, putting their populations at risk.

Water around Lundy Island, off the coast of Devon, has become England's first Marine Conservation Zone under the Marine and Coastal Access Act. The area had previously been a marine nature reserve.

The British Columbia Salmon Farmers Association has been defending the nutritional values of farmed salmon after recent media attention slammed the health benefits of it.

With negotiations before Christmas coming to a halt, talks between Norway and the EU have recommenced over total allowable catches in the North Sea, with both parties confident that an agreement will be reached over the next week.

Norway is accessing the Chinese salmon market in anticipation of World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. The Trade and Industry Minister went to Beijing earlier this week to launch a year long marketing programme to publicise Norwegian salmon.
