FIS - Worldnews in Brief - IN BRIEF - Increased efforts to save crayfish after plague spreads to another Dorset river -

Crayfish plague has been found on Dorset’s River Allen following an investigation by the Environment Agency and Dorset Wildlife Trust.

Until recently the river Allen’s native white-clawed crayfish population, one of the few remaining in Dorset, has managed to remain free from disease but dead and distressed crayfish were recently spotted in the river in July 2014.

Samples were sent to the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science for disease analysis and they have now confirmed that the crayfish are infected with crayfish plague.

“The crayfish plague is carried by non-native American signal crayfish, which are not susceptible to it and are present in many of our Dorset Rivers.

It is transferred to new waters either through the movement of the signal crayfish or by water and/or damp equipment that has come from waters that contain signal crayfish. It is not clear yet how the disease reached the River Allen,” said Andy Martin for the Environment Agency.

CHILE Tuesday, August 12, 2014, 00:40 (GMT + 9)

The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (SERNAPESCA) ensures that in Chile there are no diseases considered as being high risk for farmed trout, such as viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS), alphavirus infection (SAV) and infectious haematopoietic necrosis (IHN), among others.

SERNAPESCA reported that the preliminary results of an investigation initiated in September 2012 confirmed that nonspecific clinical findings detected in farmed trout are not attributable to any of the diseases listed by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) for this resource.

Although the mortality recorded this year is lower than in the same period in 2013, SERNAPESCA indicated that it will continue reporting on the progress of the study.

"As it was established by the Diagnostic Trial Manual for OIE Aquatic Animals and after analyzing about 1,000 samples, at present it is possible to rule out that we are experiencing one of the diseases considered as high risk for this species," deputy director of Aquaculture Service Alicia Gallardo pointed out.

The NDP's plans for the banana industry

The Unity Labour Party (ULP) administration must take the blame and responsibility for the demise of agriculture and more so the death of the banana industry in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The ULP government has deliberately set out to systematically destroy the banana industry; thus, making our hard working and honest farmers dependent on the government so that they can control them whenever the general elections are called. Early in the life of this administration, the government took control of the Banana Growers Association. The government then removed the credit facility which was established to assist farmers with their inputs; hence, making it extremely difficult for them to purchase fertilizer, insecticide and other inputs.
