Government planning to repeal animal welfare codes
Poultry industry to oversee chicken-farming standards as ministers move to create industry-led deregulation. Conservative ministers are planning to repeal an array of official guidance on animal welfare standards, starting with a move to put the code on chicken-farming into the hands of the poultry industry.

Liz Truss, the environment secretary, is overseeing moves to scrap the statutory codes on farm animal welfare and move to an “industry-led” guidance as part of her department’s deregulatory agenda. [ so industry funds its own regulatory body, lol! ] [...] Other sectors that could get control of their own guidance include the cattle, sheep and pig farming industries. //&! Poultry deregulation plans risk bringing back dark days of food scares. History shows problems start when food companies police themselves: think salmonella, BSE, foot and mouth, swine flu - - Privatisation move! Austerity. Self-regulation.

Obama climate initiative: Supreme Court calls halt - BBC News
this is akin to taking plaster to fix a crumbling high rise: limiting the emissions and putting cost on emissions for one industry, seen as heavies polluter in public eye ... while livestock industry is biggest +50% of them all. // what is needed is a carbon tax that also includes environmental and ecological cost (ie deforestation, water pollution from pig waste - livestock farming) and if we are already there, what about antibiotic-resistance? A Marschall Plan for the future of earth and its occupants. A future for us. // If and import doesn't have a carbon tax, tariffs have to be enacted on imports based on their damage to environment, ecology and carbon emissions. ... // economic damage & public health problems and health inequality in the future is deferred taxation for the next generation // Obama isn't bold enough. Not Utopian enough.

Fischfangquoten: Weniger Makrelen für deutsche Fischer - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mehr Hering für deutsche Fischer - und weniger Makrelen: Die EU-Staaten haben sich auf die Fischfangquoten für die Nordsee im Jahr 2016 geeinigt. Umweltschützer zeigen sich unzufrieden. [...] Grundlage für die Quoten sind Vorschläge der EU-Kommission, die sich wiederum auf die Empfehlungen von Wissenschaftlern stützt. Die Umweltorganisation Oceana zeigte sich mit dem Ergebnis allerdings unzufrieden. "Die Lücke zwischen Politik und Wissenschaft bleibt bestehen", teilte sie mit. Damit sei die nachhaltige Nutzung der Fischbestände bedroht. [ wenn selbst Oceana kritik uebt, und in Cowspiracy schlecht weg kommt, dann klafft da eine weite luecke. Wer sind ueberhaupt die Wissenschaftler? bezahlt von der lobby? ]

Study finds unsafe mercury levels in 84 percent of all fish - CBS News
A new study from the Biodiversity Research Institute in Maine found that 84 percent of fish have unsafe levels of mercury. That poses a health risk for humans, exceeding the guidelines for eating certain kinds of fish more than once a month.

"Many of the tuna fish we eat, for example, swim in the South China Sea, and that's mercury pollution that comes into cans and into our pantries every day,"

The proposed U.N. treaty calls for: filtering mercury emissions out of burning coal; cutting mercury use in gold mining; reducing its use in manufacturing of electronic switches and batteries.

AFP: Overfishing pushes tuna stocks to the brink: experts
The Atlantic bluefin species, which can live to 40 years old and grow to more than four metres (13 feet) long, is in the gravest danger of disappearing with stocks estimated in some areas to have halved over four decades.

It is so highly prized by sushi-loving Japanese that a 269-kilogram (592-pound) fish went for a record 56.49 million yen ($737,000 at the time) in January auctions.


The global tuna industry is an economic juggernaut, with fishing in the Pacific Ocean alone -- accounting for 65 percent of the global commercial catch -- worth around $5.5 billion a year.

Toshio Katsukawa, a fisheries expert from Mie University in Japan, said only urgent international cooperation could safeguard the future of the Pacific bluefin tuna.

"Immediate action is necessary" because the risk of commercial extinction is immediate, Katsukawa said.

Overfishing has hurt the Gulf's economy, report says - Houston Chronicle
The study by Ecotrust, a Portland, Ore.-based conservation group, found that Gulf states, including Texas, lost $13 million annually between 2005 and 2009 because of fewer recreational fishing trips targeting severely depleted red snapper.

The amount represents money that was not spent on boat rentals, charter fees, tackle and bait and other direct expenses.

The group estimated the losses increased to $33 million a year when spending on restaurants, hotels and other related businesses is included.

The Gulf region also lost millions each year because of overfishing of gag, gray triggerfish and greater amberjack, the study found.

The Pew Environment Group, which paid for the study, said the findings make the economic case for extending federal law that requires science-based annual catch limits to rebuild fisheries stocks.
