Editorial: Talks Fail To Solve Mackerel Dispute

Three days of talks began last week between the EU, Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, in a bid to solve the ongoing mackerel dispute.

Whilst some called the talks constructive, the situation was not resolved and a second meeting has been planned.

Global standards addressing the potential negative impacts of abalone farming on the environment and society have been finalised by the Abalone Aquaculture Dialogue.

The new standards aim to minimise the key impacts associated with abalone farming.

To date, certification standards have been completed for bivalves, pangasius and tilapia; standards for shrimp, freshwater trout, salmon, seriola and cobia, are expected to be finalised by mid-2011.

Around 7,000 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico have been re-opened between the Florida-Alabama state line.

Slowly areas of the Gulf have been re-opened since July to commercial and recreational fishing, following careful consultation with the US Food and Drug Administration.

The total area re-opened represents about three per cent of federal waters in the Gulf and 29 per cent of the current closed area.
