The Winding Glass: We Need a New Magnuson Act to Deal with Climate Change Impacts on Fisheries

[The Winding Glass is an opinion and commentary column from SeafoodNews Founder and Publisher John Sackton.]

50 years ago fisheries were in crisis.  The prevailing international law allowed no national control of ocean activities beyond 12 miles.  

Similar fishing situations were occurring around other coastal nations. 

The key features of the Magnuson-Stevens Act passed in 1976 were regional councils,  the best available science, and to involve all stakeholders in the council and decision-making process.

Today we are facing a new crisis...

How Much U.S. Seafood is Imported? New Paper Challenges Conventional Thinking

Story note: Max Mossler studied environmental perception & policy in grad school. He thinks a lot about how other people think about the planet. He is the managing editor at Sustainable Fisheries UW.

According to the latest science, 35-38% of seafood consumed in the U.S. is produced domestically, meaning 62-65% is imported.

The commonly quoted statistic that “90% of seafood consumed in the United States is imported” is out of date and should stop being cited. In this post, I explain the origins of the 90% myth...

The Winding Glass: If Your Only Tool is Anti-Trust, Everything Looks Like Price Fixing

This week Euclid fish launched a US class action price-fixing suit against the major salmon companies.

Several tuna executives have pled guilty as well, and currently, Chris Lischewski, former CEO of Bumble Bee...

Highly Ironic That Export Award from Gov’t Went to Maine Company Most Hurt by Seafood Tariffs

[The Winding Glass is an opinion and commentary column from SeafoodNews Founder and Publisher John Sackton.]

The danger of an escalating trade war with China for the seafood industry runs on two tracks.  For importers, especially of tilapia, the prospect of a permanent 25% tariff will force a major reshuffling in the category.  Unless the exemption on taxing products from the US processed in China is revoked, other items like pink salmon, twice frozen cod and pollock, and processed flatfish which are...
