Sydney Rock Oysters shrinking due to coastal acidification

Sydney Rock Oysters, found in the waters of Australia and New Zealand, are getting smaller due to coastal acidification, a new report has found.

A Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) study carried out by Scottish and Australian scientists at two commercial oyster farms in Wallis Lake and Post Stephens, both in the mid-north coast of New South Wales, confirmed that the oysters' diminishing size and falling population is due to acidification from land and sea sources.

Ocean acidification has been reported globally, while coastal acidification from the land, as freshwater runoff from acid sulfate soils, is driven by rising sea levels and flooding also decreases environmental pH.

Biomin announces support for MycoSafe-South to combat mycotoxins in Sub-Saharan Africa

Biomin, the global leader in mycotoxin deactivation, has recently announced its involvement in a three year, nearly US$1 million project to tackle mycotoxin-related food safety issues in sub-Saharan Africa.
 


The MycoSafe-South project aims to identify safe-use options for aflatoxins- and fumonisins-contaminated food and feed, to reduce human exposure to fungi-produced mycotoxins from animal protein sources, and to promote education and awareness efforts to understand mycotoxin-associated health risks in humans and animals. The research outcomes focus on human and infrastructural capacity building, and awareness building through on-site training of community, nutritionists, veterinarians, small-scale subsistence farmers and commercial farmers.

AFIA applauds FDA decision to extend some FSMA compliance inspection time frames

The American Feed Industry Association praises the Food and Drug Administration's announcement yesterday to extend its deadlines and inspection timeframes for when certain-sized facilities should come into compliance with some Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA) rules and regulations.
 


By extending the deadlines, the FDA will have more time to release the final FSMA guidance documents and train its inspectors, while the regulated animal food industry will have greater opportunity to perform the necessary retrofits to animal food safety plans and processes to ensure full compliance with federal regulations.

"Throughout the rulemaking process, AFIA has asked the agency to take a staggered approach to implementation to allow the industry time to focus on current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) implementation and also to receive the necessary guidance to properly implement the hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls (HA/PC) requirements," said Leah Wilkinson, AFIA's vice president of public policy and education. "AFIA applauds the agency for continuing to offer this staggered approach and flexibility as the industry implements these broad sweeping regulations."

Global Salmon Initiative marks five year anniversary

Five years ago today, a group of salmon farming CEOs decided to take a risk on a new approach to shaping a sustainable future for the industry – collaboration.

The Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) was the vision of those CEOs, who decided that the usual models of change weren’t working effectively, and something different was needed in order to see significant improvements in sustainability.
  



Betting instead on a model of pre-competitive collaboration and increased transparency, the GSI members set ambitious targets of achieving the highest environmental and social standards (as set by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council [ASC]), sharing expertise and knowledge to promote accelerated change at speed and at scale, and – likely the biggest risk of all – sharing their progress via a publicly available and transparent reporting platform.

Chile’s Council for Transparency orders salmon producers to reveal amount of antibiotics used

The Council for Transparency (CPT in Spanish) ruled in favour of Oceana for the very first time, ordering salmon producers to reveal information on the amount of antibiotics used by salmon farms during 2015, 2016 and 2017, after 18 of 24 companies refused to provide the information requested in February this year by marine conservation organisation Oceana, arguing that the dissemination of this data "would put them at risk in the competitive, economic and commercial perspective".
 
Image credit: Oceana

This represents a change of criteria in the CPT, since it had historically denied the provision of information and it was only made available through court proceedings. On this occasion, according to the organisation's decision, the companies that were against providing the information did not prove that its disclosure "affects the commercial and economic rights of the companies", adding that "there is public interest related to the knowledge of such information because it is linked to a matter that can compromise public health".

Funding for Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association

An investment of $460,000 is being made in equipment aimed at improving the effectiveness, quality and sustainability of New Brunswick's fisheries and seafood sector.

The funding will help the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association with the purchase and installation of two real-time monitoring buoys equipped with sensors. Data collected from the buoys in Passamaquoddy Bay will be used to support decision-making for the aquaculture industry and for matters of concern to other marine users, such as fishers and tourism operators.

LípidosToledo SA began in 1996 as a family business and under the guidance of a group of professionals with extensive experience in the Animal Nutrition field. 

From the outset, the company's mission has been to provide its clients with personalised service and efficient, natural products that are able to meet the demands of the sector.

The facilities allow the manufacture of nutritional products, liquid and powder based phytobiotic additives, nutraceutical products and nutritional and specialty products without any risk of the products becoming cross contaminated.

In 2010, Lípidos Toledo SA acquired a large office space at C/ San Romualdo 12-14 in Madrid, Spain where all logistics work is carried out. This enables Lípidos Toledo SA to fulfil its objective of manufacturing products of the highest quality and providing its clients the best service.

Wenger company profile



From small-town entrepreneur to worldwide leader. With a little ingenuity and a lot of hard work, brothers Joe and Louis Wenger founded Wenger Mixing Company in a small Kansas (USA) town in 1935. They went on to design a machine that blended molasses with dry feedstuffs and produced pellets in 1948.

Theirs was the first extrusion cooking system and the basic technology for all commercial extruders used today.  The Wenger brothers' novel idea created a worldwide industry. And, seventy-five years later, Wenger Manufacturing, Inc. is still a family-owned business committed to groundbreaking innovation in the extrusion market.

AquaChile, one of Chile's largest salmon producers, had recently struck a $255 million deal to purchase two smaller Chilean fish farming operations, boosting the company's access to the Magallanes region of Patagonia, a prime area of cold water ideal for salmon rearing.

Several salmon producing companies in Chile have moved to consolidate in recent months as demand and prices for salmon have increased and Chilean operations recover from several years of devastating outbreaks of red tide and salmon-specific viruses.
