毎年少なくとも5000万匹の #サメ が商業漁業で混獲として殺されています。 過去数十年でサメの90%が失われました。 シーフードを食べることは、サメや他の #sealife の殺害の一因となります。

#Whales & #dolphins are facing many manmade existential threats: depletion of food by overfishing, drop in birthrates due to industrial pollution, killing by discarded fishnets & plastics etc

Over 300,000 #whales and #dolphins are killed as bycatch in #fishnets every year. People eating #seafood is the reason that fishing trawlers go to sea & cause these deaths of whales & dolphins. #Boycott #seafood. It’s #seas #piracy

Every year at least 50 million #sharks are killed as #bycatch in commercial #fishing. 90% of sharks have been lost in the last few decades. Eating seafood contributes to the bykill of sharks and other #sealife.

In the #LongFoodMovement report, we're reminded that the world’s 30 million artisanal #fishers and workers provide nearly half of the #fish we eat (@IPBES, 2019).

But with #climatechange & island/ocean grabbing, small-scale fishers & their communities are in peril.

🧵Thread 👇🏾
Island/#ocean grabbing is likely to intensify as countries seek to solidify their influence, their #food supply chains, & their global sourcing and distribution networks. For example, in the #RedSea region, conflicts over fish & other marine resources threaten rich #biodiversity.
Meanwhile, in the South China Sea, said to
have some of the highest marine #biodiversity on earth, #China has been building airstrips, ports & other facilities on disputed islands & reefs, w/ the apparent aim of establishing military bases (cf. Ives,
2016).

Andrew #Marr Show: Frustrating to see Dominic #Raab dodge answering the real questions about the effects of #Brexit on the UK #fishing industry, just like Boris last week. 1. The export issues are not just teething problems, they are due to a fundamental systems shift 1/-
2. The increase in quotas will only go to a select group, the vast majority of vessels and therefore coastal communities will see no benefit. Some will be worse off due to new restrictions on the quota swapping system 2/-
3. What about restricting foreign access to the 6-12 mile zone off the British coast? The government said this was a red line and for many UK fishermen this was going to be the most important benefit from Brexit. Nothing has changed and Raab didn't answer the question 3/-

#China #Yangtze #Hunan #enviorment #fishing

A total 10-year fishing ban now applies in the pivotal waters of the Yangtze, China's longest river, starting on Friday, according to the central government strategy. Image
Urbanization and shipping along the Yangtze River have resulted in the decrease or loss of marine ecosystems for decades. According to an expert, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides have also contributed to the river's contamination.
Also situated in the middle reaches of the river, Hunan Province closed and demolished all 39 illegal wharves along the mainstream Yangtze River while restoring the ecological ecosystem there. About 1,300 hectares of forest have also been planted by the province along the river.

1/8 Under this historic trade agreement with the EU – the first based on zero tariffs/quotas EVER agreed by them – 🇬🇧regains control of our laws, borders, money, trade and waters. 🇬🇧 has the political and economic independence on 1 January 21 that was voted for in 2016.
2/8 On 1 January 2021, 🇬🇧 leaves the #CFP and becomes an independent coastal state. Something that, from the very start, the EU insisted could NOT happen. They tried to get the status quo tied into the original Withdrawal Agreement – we stood firm against that.
3/8 EU 'insisted' on maintaining status quo on #fishing with early calls for a 40-year adjustment period! 5.5 yrs is a huge climb-down for them compared with our opening compromise of 3 yrs. And, in that time, 🇬🇧 will receive a transfer of 25% of quota (15% in first year).

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."

"... our three #Sea Services have watched with alarm the growing #naval #power of the People’s Republic of #China & the increasingly aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation.

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."
"We witness firsthand their increasing sophistication and growing aggressiveness. ... The People’s Republic of #China represents the most pressing, long-term strategic threat."

#China #PapuaNewguinea #PNG #Bejing #DaruIsland #fishing

China's Ministry of Commerce has announced that Fujian Zhonghong Fishery Company has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Papua New Guinea Government
to build a $204 million "comprehensive multi-functional fishery industrial park" on the island of Daru under its Belt and Road Initiative. Daru is one of the few Torres Strait Islands that are governed by Papua New Guinea rather than Australia.
Former PNG government adviser Jeffrey Wall said it was a lot of money to spend in a small community not known for commercial fish stocks. For Australia and the USA the Daru island agreement between PNG and China is a threat as the Daru islands are not even 200KM away.

With no foreseeable end in sight, #Israel’s blockade on #Gaza not only runs afoul of international #law, but it has also already been on the radar of the #UN and #humanrights groups for well over a decade.

Today, few #Palestinians remain in the #fishing trade – and about ninety-five percent of these live below the #poverty line, with little hope of improvement.

Just as with the last three major Israeli incursions into #Gaza, #Israel’s stated motive – to stop incoming projectiles – conceals a long-term ambition: to seize more land with fewer #Palestinians on it.

I slept for fourteen or fifteen hours today after sleeping six the night before. Sleep is one of the most important things when you live with #bipolardisorder -- too much and you sink into a depression. Too little and...
...you are the obnoxious life of the party. So my body fought off the mania by blasting me with an excessive night stupor. It made it hard to engage for very long with people on my online bipolar support group. Perhaps it was for the best given that I was such dismal company.

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

There has been much action lately around #seafood #traceability, and last weekend I was eating #BlueHarborFishCo Albacore #Tuna - and noticed the claim on the can that they could track all the way back to the boat, and had a @MSCecolabel on the can. #fishery 1/n Image
I was interested if a company could really go all the way back to the boat, so I looked on the blueharborfishco.com web site for fishing boat information. Here it discussed @MSCecolabel and that the trace back is "to a certified sustainable source and #fishing practice" 2/n Image
I was getting suspicious - #seafood #traceability back to the boat? I thought I would check the @MSCecolabel web site for information about this #Tuna #fishery - only 1 MSC web page has the MSC-C-54143 code, and that is a 279 page report that mentions this code 1 time 3/n Image
