During many years the tons of uncontrolled fish piled up in our markets and homes. To solve this situation and avoid the mislabeling and confusion we must create a system to control the other percent of imported food in order to avoid serious diseases. Loaded with mercury Since we were little kids we were thought that fish is good for us because it is rich in omega 3 fats which will do wonders for our health. Nowadays in this modern society where pollution has reached its highest point we can’t be sure that the food and especially the fish we consume are 100% healthy and clean. Tests conducted by Geological Survey have shown that tuna is high in mercury which may kill a person.
The Hawaiian monk seal, or Monachus schauinslandi, was one of the original species to be placed under the Endangered Species Act that was enacted in 1973. As of 2010, the population of the monk seal is approximately 1,100, with an annual decrease of approximately 4.5%. The Hawaiian monk seal is primarily found on the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands that are made up of coral reef atolls, seamounts, banks, and shoals. This is due to the fact that the monk seals primarily forage on the barrier reefs of the atolls, on submerged reefs, and on banks further from the atolls (Curtice et al, 2011). The monk seals primarily like to look for food on the surface of the ocean floor and will search for food in depths up to 500 meters.
Usually, they spawn in large groups where they become highly vulnerable to commercial fishing. The estimated relative batch fecundity is more than 90 eggs/g of female’s body weight. Bluefin tuna Aquaculture: The farming of Atlantic bluefin tuna began as early as the 1970s by Canadian fishermen who captured young fish and raised them in pens. The development of tuna farming continued in order to meet the growing demand for tuna in Japanese market. Cages are used for tuna fattening with the target to grow tuna to reach hundreds of kilos, which fetch premium prices in Japan.
In some parts of the world, abalone has been considered a luxury food and served in special occasions such as weddings. Depending on cultures and preferences, abalone may be consumed live and raw, used in sushi, or served steamed, salted, boiled, or chopped. Capture fishery: The high value abalone fishery used to be the main production system supporting the livelihood of many fishermen especially in Asia. Because of variety of reasons, abalone world fishery witnessed a considerable decline from 16,800 tons in 1980 to around 7,200 tons in 2015. Abalone aquaculture:According to FAO statistics, abalone farming was in the early phase during the 1980s whereas their world aquaculture produced only 228 tons in 1980.
Along with this, most large seafood industries manage their own farming organization with aim to produce fresh, frozen, smoked or even canned before selling to local or international markets. (Boziaris, 2014) In the U.S., the packed for fish or shellfish products that have been canned differ each year between 500 million to a billion pound with tuna, salmon and clam as the major products. (Sea Grant,
Many fish can live on minimal nutrition with old or stale flake foods, but this poor nutrition is a chronic stress. A variety of well-preserved dry foods as well as freeze-dried, fresh, and frozen foods specifically designed for individual species are necessary to prevent chronic nutritional stress. The size, metabolic rate, temperature of the fish’s environment is extremely important to the amount of food a fish eats . Smaller fishes generally have a higher metabolic rate than large fishes so that means the small fishes generally eat proportionately more. Some researchers have calculated food intake for some species.
For example, according to the article Polynesian Migrations, “Over the span of 800 years, Polynesians have explored over 16 million square miles of ocean and have settled in every habitable island in the Pacific. They brought their world view with them when they arrived in Hawai`i by voyaging on canoe from the southern Pacific (primarily the Marquesas), settling the islands circa 300-60.” This clearly proves how rich and special Hawaiian history is because without these people, Hawaiian culture would never have existed. These Polynesians were the creators of all Hawai’i, and to carry on all of the knowledge that they have brought with them such as, how to navigate, how to fish, how to make different medicines, and so much more is an honor and should be something that is respected and brought to people’s full attention, not forgotten. It’s these kinds of special moments in history that make an event such as this one worth
Therefore the best alternative to reduce the excess inventory is to launch a ‘Limited Edition Campaign’ in which the excess inventory can be cleared in a short span of time as compared to the other alternatives. The cost incurred in expansion or acquisition is relatively higher than the cost incurred in launching this campaign, by doing this the customer base would increase naturally for Neptune’s seafood products. The demand can be met by the available excess inventory without reducing the price or eroding the brand image of the
The bongo net, then towing 30 minute sub-surface from each station. Figure 2: Bongo net (mesh size 500 µm, mouth diameter 0.3m and length 1.3m). v. Sukumaran et al., (2014) use a cast net measuring 2.5 m long, with a mesh size varying from 7 mm at the base and 15 mm at the apex was employed in the collection of fish throughout the period of study and the net was hauled 10 times during every collection at the sampling site. vi.

Dungeness crab (Metacarcinus magister) Introduction: The Dungeness crab, Metacarcinus magister (formerly: Cancer magister), is also known as market crab, and San Francisco crab and belongs to the family Cancridae. The common name of this species comes from the port of Dungeness, Washington. This species is among California’s most popular shellfish and is one of the largest edible crabs along the Pacific Coast of America. The estimated maximum life span is from 8 to 13 years. Geographical range and habitats: The geographical range of Dungeness crab extends from Alaska's Aleutian Islands to Point Conception, California.
