Women’s education in the spotlight at the port of Saint John (Canada)

The Maiden, an ocean racing yacht, with an all-female crew, will call at Saint John from 3 to 13 August 2022. Their mission is to raise funds in the communities they visit, to promote access to education for girls and young women. Sponsored by the global leader in logistics, DP World, the Maiden left Dubai in January on a three-year voyage. The yacht will call at Pugsley Slip, in the middle of Saint John, close to the container village. Members of the public will be able to meet the crew and attend a variety of events on the theme of women’s role in the field of science. A fundraising dinner will be held at the Marco Polo cruise terminal on 9 August.

Busan (South Korea): the city prepares to host the next World Expo

Busan is one of the last candidate cities still in the running to host the 2030 World Expo With one year to go until the winner is announced, the city looks in good shape to see of its rivals (Rome, Riyadh, Odessa and Moscow), despite never having previously staged an event of this scale. The port city hopes to gain an edge over other candidates thanks to its status as a hub of environmental innovation, a symbol of Korean reconstruction, and a model for growth and democracy for developing countries.

Preparing ports for offshore wind? Examples in Australia and the USA

Between 5 and 20 km²: that is the area needed to build and maintain a next generation offshore wind turbine. Ports need to contend with this spatial requirement, while also thinking about the supply chain for spare parts. That is why GeelongPort (Australia) is behind plans to earmark 25 hectares to storing and preparing wind turbine components. At least one dock will be dedicated to this kind of traffic. The aim is to establish the port as a shipping hub for the whole State of Victoria. It’s a similar story in Rhode Island (USA), where a dock has been reinforced and extended by 70 m. In area terms, 13 hectares have been set aside for storage and pre-shipping. The rear bases of the offshore wind industry will be first and foremost those ports with available land.

Mukilteo (USA): the city and port adopt a joint project to regenerate the waterfront

Last week, Mukilteo municipal council and the Port Everett planning commission unanimously approved plans to redevelop the waterfront district. The project aims to make the area more accessible for pedestrians, create a centre for Snohomish culture and the environment, and restore easy access to the sea for local residents. The waterfront will become an important hub for the region and a symbol of cooperation between the city and port.

In Zhejiang (China), aquaculture is becoming sustainable by providing composite food for farmed fish

In Zhejiang (China), aquaculture is becoming sustainable by providing composite food for farmed fish  

In its declaration published at the United Nations Conference on the Oceans, the FAO reported a shocking finding. Over 31% of the world’s fish stocks are poorly managed or overexploited. Currently, the prospects for sustainable ocean fishing are not looking good. The FAO is calling for more efforts to develop aquaculture, which represents the biggest potential source of food to feed the planet by 2050. However, fish farming – and in particular fish feed – needs to be made more sustainable. For example, salmon, which are very popular with consumers, are fed with juvenile fish or other less popular species. In Zhejiang (China), more and more fish farms are testing the use of composite feeds made partly from soya and partly from offal (i.e. parts that are unfit for consumption). This is expected to prevent the travesty of catching fish to feed other fish. But composite feeds also reduce aquaculture costs, potentially cutting the price of a tonne of feed from $1500 to just $150.
