The board's recommendations will outline an RFID-based system for fulfilling EU regulations for tracking the seafood supply chain, beginning in 2013

Dec. 27, 2011—The Swedish Board of Fisheries is designing the policy framework, due out in mid 2012, for an RFID system to trace fish from the time they are caught until it reaches the consumer. Once the framework is in place, the board will begin selecting technology partners for the system. 

................... The governance matters that need to be settled are not small, particularly questions of how data will be exchanged across borders. "If Swedish fishermen are fishing in Danish waters, send the catch to Germany, where the fish is made into filets and is exported to France, a French consumer must be able to ask his retailer where the fish came from," Hild explained. "So you need to go from France, to Germany, to Denmark, to Sweden in a second to find that information. That's a big challenge." .......

Crabbers get a boost in bairdi Tanner quotas

LAINE WELCH Image via Wikipedia FISHERIES Published: November 7th, 2009 10:10 PM Last Modified: November 7th, 2009 10:12 PM KODIAK -- Kodiak and Alaska Peninsula crabbers got some good news last week -- bigger catch quotas for bairdi Tanner crab, a mid-January fishery important to local economies. Bairdi are the larger cousins of the better-known opilio Tanners, or snow crab. The bairdi boost stems from a big pulse of new crab recruits that biologists have been tracking for years. "That is what's fueling the increase in the harvest this year. We're just getting the very beginning of that year class," said.........

Danish commandos 'monitoring hippies' on Arctic offshore rig #artcticloons

Image by Steve Rhodes via Flickr Alaska Dispatch | May 31, 2011 Armed Danish commandos have (possibly) been summoned to monitor Earth-loving "hippies" clinging to the underbelly of an Arctic deepwater oil rig  off the coast of Greenland , sources say. The environmental non-governmental group  Greenpeace  has published  statements and  video  showing its activists aboard two ships that are attempting to "interfere" with oil exploration going on in the Davis Strait, 100 miles west of Greenland. This business has in turn prompted the Kingdom of Denmark to launch two ships and a few helicopters to monitor the Greenpeace interference. The  Leiv Eriksson  is the source of all this Arctic bait and switch. British oil company  Cairn Energy  is attempting to drill four wells at depths of at least 5,000 feet this summer in "iceberg-strewn sea" with the 53,000-ton offshore oil rig, which has made its way to Arctic waters after a month of failed attempts by Green
