Melbourne show dates, Singapore forum focus on piracy, Hainan heats up

This week, there is a huge diversity in our news and features.

Japan's fish markets are suffering from the fishing fleet's devastation after the 11 March earthquake and tsunami, and the local infrastructure will have to be rebuilt from the ground up. This is interesting in light of the local and world focus on Sustainable Seafood, from wild sources and via aquaculture.

Queenstown New Zealand will be welcoming delegates to the New Zealand marine industry conference, 23 to 25 March, focusing on remaining competitive, innovative and punching well above its weight internationally.

There's a heap of new products for sail and motor, as well as news of an end of season clearance at Andrew Short Marine at Taren Pt in NSW.

If you've not noticed, as well as running our own features stories, we will run your press releases on You can read the details of how that works in a story below.

There are plenty of other stories in the pipeline, so pop back later in the week, or as often as you need a fix of marine news from around the globe.

Have a great week!

HAWC 11M building in Hong Kong
Guy Nowell,,
