Fortune Fish Int'l Makes Five of its Executive Managers Partners in the Company 

Fortune International, the parent company to Fortune Fish & Gourmet, has made five members of its executive management team partners and co-owners of the company. Fortune’s Danielle Charette, Dominick Gattuso, Wally Lezniak, Mark Palicki and Suad Tanovic are now partners and co-owners of the Illinois-based seafood distributor. “These new partnerships recognize the company’s most senior management team and acknowledge their hard-work and commitment,” said Sean J. O’Scannlain, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fortune Fish. “Each of these individuals brings unique talents to our business and I look forward to their sustained strong leadership as we continue to grow in the years ahead”.

Lobster fishermen in Prince Edward Island want to slow down the scheduled increases to minimum carapace sizes and have those increases applied to the spring fishery. The Prince County Fishermen's Association proposed a motion that if LFA 25 is required to go up in carapace length, then the spring districts 24 and 26A should have to follow suit. The PCFA is also working with a group of fishermen in New Brunswick who want to slow down the increases in LFA 25.

In other news, a Newfoundland crab fishermen withdrew an appeal challenging a decision by Canada's federal fishery managers to take away his commercial fishing license. The fisherman, Kirby Elson, had refused to obey a DFO requirement that he exit a so-called "controlling agreement" with two Newfoundland and Labrador fish processors. Federal fishery authorities said the agreement violated the owner-operator policy that prevents individuals or corporations other than the license holder to control the use of the license.

Meanwhile, Australian investigators believe imported bait shrimp from China is behind the first ever white spot outbreak to reach the country. The bait shrimp were tied to Chinese supplier Sino. AUstrlaian officials suspended the import license for Sino last week. Additionally, some seafood importers were found guilty of deliberately tampering with what are supposed to be random samples of imported shrimp. The guilty parties could be forced to pay $3 million to clean up the outbreak at the southeast Queensland farm sites where the white spot was detected.

Finally, researchers at UCLA and Loyola Marymount University published a study that found mislabeled seafood at sushi restaurants in Los Angeles. The study suggests that the mislabeling was intentional even though the investigation didn't turn up a shred of hard evidence to support the claim. "It’s irresponsible to publicly opine about fraud happening at the supplier level when this particular research provides no evidence to demonstrate that,” said the National Fisheries Insitute's Lynsee Fowler in response to the study's claims.

Urner Barry and Seafood News will be traveling to San Francisco for the NFI's Global Seafood Market Conference. We look forward to catching up with all of those in attendance throughout the week. Safe travels to everybody and have a great weekend.
