AP Investigation Fish billed as local isnt always local

Posted on by

first_imgMONTAUK, N.Y. – Even after winter storms left East Coast harbours thick with ice, some of the country’s top chefs and trendy restaurants were offering sushi-grade tuna supposedly pulled in fresh off the coast of New York.But it was just an illusion. No tuna was landing there. The fish had long since migrated to warmer waters.In a global industry plagued by fraud and deceit, conscientious consumers are increasingly paying top dollar for what they believe is local, sustainably caught seafood. But even in this fast-growing niche market, companies can hide behind murky supply chains that make it difficult to determine where any given fish comes from. That’s where national distributor Sea To Table stepped in, guaranteeing its products were wild and directly traceable to a U.S. dock — and sometimes the very boat that brought it in.However, an Associated Press investigation found the company was linked to some of the same practices it vowed to fight. Preliminary DNA tests suggested some of its yellowfin tuna likely came from the other side of the world, and reporters traced the company’s supply chain to migrant fishermen in foreign waters who described labour abuses, poaching and the slaughter of sharks, whales and dolphins.The New York-based distributor was also offering species in other parts of the country that were illegal to catch, out of season and farmed.Over the years, Sea To Table has become a darling in the sustainable seafood movement, building an impressive list of clientele, including celebrity chef Rick Bayless, Chopt Creative Salad chain, top universities and the makers of home meal kits such as HelloFresh.“It’s sad to me that this is what’s going on,” said Bayless, an award-winning chef who runs eight popular restaurants and hosts a PBS cooking series. He said he loved the idea of being directly tied to fishermen — and the pictures and “wonderful stories” about their catch. “This throws quite a wrench in all of that.”As part of its reporting, the AP staked out America’s largest fish market, followed trucks and interviewed fishermen who worked on three continents. During a bone-chilling week, they set up a camera that shot more than 36,000 time-lapse photos of a Montauk harbour, showing no tuna boats docking. At the same time, AP worked with a chef to order fish supposedly coming from the seaside town. The boat listed on the receipt hadn’t been there in at least two years.Reporters also tracked Sea To Table’s supply chain to fishermen abroad who earn as little as $1.50 a day working 22-hour shifts without proper food and water.“We were treated like slaves,” said Sulistyo, an Indonesian fisherman forced to work on a foreign trawler that delivered fish to a Sea To Table supplier. He asked that only one name be used, fearing retaliation. “They treat us like robots without any conscience.”Sea To Table owner Sean Dimin emphasized his suppliers are strictly prohibited from sending imports to customers and added violators would be terminated.“We take this extremely seriously,” he said.Dimin said he communicated clearly with his customers that some fish labeled as freshly landed at one port was actually caught and trucked in from other states, but some chefs denied this. Federal officials described it as mislabeling.____A century ago, small-scale fisheries dotted America’s coasts and fed the country’s demand for seafood. But as time passed, overfishing, strict government regulations and outsourcing to developing countries changed the industry, making it nearly impossible for local fishermen to compete.The U.S. seafood market is worth $17 billion annually, with imports making up more than 90 per cent of that. Experts say one in five fish is caught illegally worldwide, and a study last year by the University of California, Los Angeles and Loyola Marymount University found nearly half of all sushi samples tested in L.A. didn’t match the fish advertised on the menu.Sea To Table offered a worry-free local solution that arrived from dock to doorstep by connecting chefs directly with more than 60 partners along U.S. coasts. While its mission is clear, scaling up to a national level while naming specific boats and docks is currently unrealistic. Still, the company is predicting rapid growth from $13 million in sales last year to $70 million by 2020, according to a confidential investor report obtained by the AP.As its business expanded, AP found Sea To Table has been saying one thing but selling another.For caterers hosting a ball for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who had successfully pushed through a law to combat seafood mislabeling, knowing where his fish came from was crucial.The Montauk tuna arrived with a Sea To Table leaflet describing the romantic, seaside town and an email from a salesperson saying the fish was caught off North Carolina. But the boxes came from New York and there was no indication it had been landed in another state and driven more than 700 miles to Montauk. A week later the caterer ordered the Montauk tuna again. This time the invoice listed a boat whose owner later told AP he didn’t catch anything for Sea To Table at that time.“I’m kind of in shock right now,” said Brandon LaVielle of Lavish Roots Catering. “We felt like we were supporting smaller fishing villages.”Some of Sea To Table’s partner docks, it turns out, are not docks at all. Their seafood was advertised as “just landed” from wholesalers and retailers like Santa Barbara Fish Market — which also has imports — and Red’s Best in Boston. Both collect seafood at harbours and companies up and down their coasts.Sea To Table also promoted fresh blue crab from Maryland in January, even though the season closed in November. In addition, the company said it never sells farmed seafood, citing concerns about antibiotics and hormones. But red abalone advertised from central California are actually grown in tanks — it’s been illegal to harvest commercially from the ocean since 1997. Rhode Island and Washington state also supply aquacultured seafood, such as oysters and mussels.Dimin said farmed shellfish “is a very small part of our business, but it’s something that we’re open and clear about.” When asked to provide evidence that the company has been transparent about its use of farmed shellfish, he paused and then replied, “There’s nothing to hide there.”However, days later, he said he decided to drop aquaculture from his business because it contradicts his “wild only” guarantee.Private companies that mislead consumers, clients and potential investors could face lawsuits or criminal liability. Both the Food and Drug Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are charged with enforcing laws to prevent fish fraud. Sellers who know, or even should have known, that fish is mislabeled could be found guilty of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government, mail fraud and wire fraud. The crimes carry potential fines and jail time.Carl Safina, an award-winning author and leading marine conservationist at New York’s Stony Brook University, said companies that prey on consumers’ good intentions “deserve to be out of business immediately.”A half dozen commercial fishermen and dealers in various regions of the country voiced concerns and, in some cases, anger about Sea To Table. Others have lashed out in the past using social media. Most spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern for their safety and their businesses in an industry where relationships often overlap.Eric Hodge, a small-scale fisherman from Santa Barbara, said he considered partnering with Sea To Table a few years ago. He quickly changed his mind after seeing canary rockfish on the distributor’s chef lists when the fish was illegal to catch. He also learned Sea To Table was buying halibut from the fish market, which relies heavily on imports. He said he spoke to the company about his concerns.“Honestly, they know. I just don’t think they care,” Hodge said. “They are making money on every shipment, and they are not going to ask questions. And in seafood, that’s a bad way to go about it because there is so much fraud.”___The idea for Sea To Table began with a family vacation to Trinidad and Tobago more than two decades ago. Following a fishing trip there, Michael Dimin and his son, Sean, eventually started shipping fresh catch from the Caribbean nation to chefs in New York. Later, they shifted their model to work exclusively with small-scale American coastal fishermen.Restaurants and other buyers demanding sustainable products were drawn to the company by a marketing campaign that provided a story not just about where the fish came from, but the romantic image of an American pastime. And they were willing to pay a lot — sometimes more than $20 a pound — for high-end species.The New York Times, National Geographic, Bon Appetit magazine and many others singled out Sea To Table as the good guys in a notoriously bad industry. Larry Olmsted, author of the bestselling book “Real Food, Fake Food,” recommended it as an answer to fraud in a Forbes article.After learning about the problems, Olmsted said he was disappointed, and that it made no difference to him if part of the business was legitimate: “It either is reliable, or it’s not.”Sea To Table partnered with sustainability giants such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Marine Stewardship Council and the James Beard Foundation, which collaborated on events and referred to the distributor as an industry favourite. They expressed concern that suppliers who knowingly mislabel catch will damage the movement.Sea To Table’s products are sold in almost every state, reaching everywhere from Roy’s seafood restaurants to Tacombi taco chain. It can be found at eateries inside the Empire State Building in New York and Chicago’s O’Hare airport, direct to consumers from its own website and even on Amazon for home cooks to order. In addition, more than 50 college campuses such as Yale, Ohio State and the University of Massachusetts have signed up. So have some of the biggest make-it-yourself meal kits, including Home Chef and Sun Basket, a rapidly growing market that Sea To Table says generates a third its revenues.Whether they know it or not, a company spending money at any point in a long chain that begins with an abused fisherman and ends with a diner is inadvertently supporting the problem. Customers who responded to AP said they were frustrated and confused.“Not ok,” Ken Toong, who is responsible for UMass Dining, said of Sea To Table. “We believed them.”____AP’s investigation began with one of Sea To Table’s nearby suppliers. Located on New York’s eastern coast beyond the posh Hamptons, Bob Gosman Company opened in Montauk as a mom-and-pop clam shack more than six decades ago.Now run by cousins Bryan and Asa Gosman, it is a small empire sitting on a multi-million dollar property. Oceanfront restaurants, shops and motels bustle with tourists in the summer. And its fish market, where 70 per cent of the tuna is imported, has become one of the biggest wholesalers in the area.Gosman’s gets most of its tuna along with other species from a place in the state where fish can always be found, regardless of the season: The New Fulton Fish Market. The nine-acre refrigerated warehouse just outside Manhattan is the second-largest facility of its kind, moving millions of pounds of seafood each night, much of it flown in from across the globe.Beautiful maroon slabs of imported high-grade tuna were on display for several nights in December, January and February, as well as other times throughout last year, when AP reporters roamed the market. The frigid building buzzed with workers on forklifts zigzagging across slick concrete floors, stacking orders waiting to be picked up.In the early hours, often between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., boxes of fish bearing foreign shipping labels from all over the world were arranged into piles with “Gosman” scribbled across them in black marker. They were later hoisted onto a waiting truck with the same name.After a three-hour drive east, the AP watched the loads arrive at the company’s loading dock in Montauk, just as the sun was rising on the tip of Long Island.The tuna, swordfish and other species were then ferried inside Gosman’s warehouse. They came from Blue Ocean in Brazil, Vietnam’s Hong Ngoc Seafood Co., and Land, Ice and Fish in Trinidad and Tobago. Occasionally, boxes showed up from Luen Thai Fishing Venture and Marshall Islands Fishing Venture, part of a Hong Kong-based conglomerate that’s a major supplier of sushi-grade tuna. Despite recent conservation partnerships, Luen Thai has a checkered past, including shark finning and a bribery scandal that resulted in the jailing of a former Cook Islands marine resources minister in 2016.Bryan Gosman said Sea To Table stressed it would not take imports. But with no yellowfin tuna landed in New York during the coldest winter months — which a federal official confirmed — it was impossible to provide high-quality loins from Montauk.“So in the beginning, there were times when we were trying to hustle around fish,” Gosman said. “Buying fish at different places, so it could be a legitimate business plan that they’re trying to follow.”Eventually, with Dimin’s blessing, Gosman said he started getting fish from as far away as North Carolina and trucking it up to New York.They stopped that arrangement in March. Gosman said it wasn’t profitable. Dimin said they wanted to avoid the “complexity of communicating” their sourcing.Meanwhile, in the dead of winter, AP had turned to a chef to order $500 worth of fish on their behalf. Sea To Table provided a receipt and verbal assurances that the seafood — which arrived overnight in a box bearing the company’s name and logo — had been landed in Montauk the day before.The invoice even listed the “Standin Up” as the boat that caught it. But the vessel’s owner said it was in another state at the time, hundreds of miles away.“I know my name is being used,” said Robert Devlin, who was upset by the news. “A lot of people do fraud that way.”The AP also shipped tuna samples supposedly from Montauk to two labs for analysis: Preliminary DNA testing suggested the fish likely came from the Indian Ocean or the Western Central Pacific. There are limitations with the data because using genetic markers to determine the origins of species is still an emerging science, but experts say the promising new research will eventually be used to help fight illegal activity in the industry.Bryan Gosman said they keep Sea To Table’s fish separate, but acknowledged there’s always a chance some imported tuna can slip through with domestic.“Can things get mixed up? It could get mixed up,” he said. “Is it an intentional thing? No, not at all.”___The investigation didn’t end in Montauk. One of the boxes in Gosman’s stack at the Fulton fish market was stamped with a little blue tuna logo above the words “Land, Ice and Fish,” out of Trinidad and Tobago.This is where the AP traced companies in Sea To Table’s supply chain to slave-like working conditions and the destruction of marine life.The global seafood industry is known for providing cheap fish that comes with another price. Unscrupulous foreign companies operate with virtually no oversight in vast swaths of international waters, as AP reported in a series of stories in 2015. Those reports helped free more than 2,000 enslaved fishermen in Indonesia.Though it’s nearly impossible to tell where a specific fish ends up, or what percentage of a company’s seafood is fraudulent, experts say even one bad piece taints the entire supply chain.On learning that Sea To Table’s supply chain could be tracked to businesses engaged in labour and environmental abuses, Dimin said it was “abhorrent and everything we stand against.”He said he was temporarily suspending operations with two partners to conduct an audit.During the investigation, reporters interviewed and obtained written complaints from more than a dozen current and former Indonesian fishermen — including Sulistyo — who were connected to companies in Sea To Table’s supply chain.Sulistyo said his trawler plied waters between Africa and the Caribbean. Occasionally, it stopped in Trinidad and unloaded swordfish, yellowfin and bigeye tuna at Land, Ice and Fish.Some crew members who docked there said they were beaten and forced to work when they were sick or hurt. At times, they said, migrant workers died on board and were tossed in the freezer with their catch while the boat continued to fish.“You are out 500 miles or a thousand miles from shore, he is the law at that point,” John Duberg of Land, Ice and Fish said of individual captains. “And if he feels he has a misbehaving crew member, he may have to take disciplinary actions.”Marine life was treated with even less respect. Some men said they were ordered to pull in as many sharks as they could catch and slice off their fins, which are a delicacy in Asia. The bodies were tossed back into the ocean, a practice banned by many countries.Whales also were killed, their heads sometimes chopped off and their teeth extracted as good luck charms. The workers showed photos and videos of fishermen posing with mutilated sharks and whales. While some men appeared to celebrating, others said it left them feeling sickened.Sulistyo endured the abuse and long hours for a year before jumping to another ship in 2017, demanding to be taken to port. He returned to Indonesia and was classified as a victim of trafficking by the International Organization for Migration.After hearing that just 30 pounds of tuna could be sold in America for more than $600 — the amount Sulistyo earned during his entire year of work — he stared at the ground in disgust.“I want to say to the Americans who eat that fish, please appreciate what we did to catch this fish with our sweat, with our lives,” Sulistyo said. “Please remember that.”____AP journalists Julie Jacobson in New York and Niniek Karmini in Jakarta, Indonesia contributed to this report.last_img read more

UN envoy calls on Somali Parliament to resolve internal disputes

Posted on by

26 April 2010The top United Nations envoy to Somalia today appealed to members of the nation’s Parliament to put aside their infighting and to instead focus on meeting the population’s needs and bolstering security. “I am following, with great unease, the unhelpful debate about parliamentary issues now taking place in Mogadishu,” Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, said in a press release.Although, he said, he recognizes the need to address the question of parliamentarians’ salaries, “at the same time, I deplore the time and energy wasted on arguments which could be devoted to resolving more pressing issues at hand,” which also include implementing the March agreement struck between the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and Ahlu Sunna wal Jama, an opposition faction previously opposed to the transitional authority.Mr. Ould-Abdallah voiced hope that Government and parliamentary leaders will be able to patch up their differences and tackle tasks affecting Somalis both within and outside the country.He said that he plans to meet with Ambassador Claude Heller of Mexico, who chairs the UN sanctions committee for Somalia, when the body visits the region.The committee, the Special Representative said, will bring up the issue of impunity, “which has long been a devastating factor in the Somali crisis,” during its meetings with representatives from the Governments of Somalia and Kenya.He also took note of last week’s meeting of the International Contact Group (ICG), the United Nations-backed group supporting peace and reconciliation in Somalia, which welcomed efforts by the TFG to reach out to opposition groups willing to join the peace process.In a communiqué at the end of the gathering held at the headquarters of the League of Arab States (LAS) in Cairo, the body that it was particularly encouraged by the 15 March an agreement between the Government and Ahlu Sunna wal Jama.“The ICG recognises this agreement as a possible blueprint for future cooperation with other groups and calls for the TFG to intensify its outreach efforts to those committed to peace and stability,” the communiqué noted after the Group’s latest meeting, chaired by Mr. Ould-Abdallah.With 1.4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), some 570,000 refugees in the region and nearly 3 million people dependent on humanitarian aid, Somalia – which has been devastated by factional fighting and without a functioning central government since 1991 – remains the setting of one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. read more

Golf course operator fined 50K after worker injured

Posted on by

A corporation that owns and operates golf courses has been fined after a young worker was injured by a wood chipper.Clublink Corporation ULC pleaded guilty on Thursday to violating the Occupational Health and Safety Act.On May 27, 2015, two workers were operating a wood chipper at RattleSnake Point Golf Club Limited in Milton.The first worker started the chipper and began feeding wood while the second looked for a place to put down a coffee cup. The worker placed the cup near a vent on the back of the chipper, and tried to feel if air was coming out of the vent that would knock the cup over. The worker’s hand was pulled into the vent and injured.An investigation by the Ministry of Labour determined that a guard should have prevented access to the vent and was not in place at the time of the incident.The court also imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge that is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime. read more

County urges residents to use recycling bins

Posted on by

Anyone using plastic bags to hold their recyclables may be receiving a note from the county.The Norfolk County Public Works department has put together a door hanger to leave at homes that use bags for their recycling rather than the county approved bins.The plastic bags make it challenging at the processing centre, slow down the process altogether, and are considered a single use plastic.“The province and the federal government are really working on single use plastic, both have committed to eliminating it,” said Merissa Bokla, supervisor of waste management. “Those plastic bags are single use and are creating more waste.”The backside of the door hanger includes a diagram of which items you can recycle and which need to go in the garbage bins. Some of the most common items that need to be thrown away but often end up in the recycling bins are potato chip bags, pet food bags, mulch and fertilizer bags, coffee cups and lids, children’s toys, garden hoses, and frying pans and baking sheets.While putting all of your recycling into bags is not accepted, large amounts of grocery bags can be bundled together into one grocery bag that’s tied shut. Shredded paper can also be tied in a small plastic bag and placed in the bin with the rest of the items.Residents that require a recycling box can either pick one up at the County Administration Building (50 Colborne St, Simcoe), Delhi Administration Building (183 Main Street, Delhi) , Langton Administration Building (22 Albert St, Langton), or at the Material Recovery Facility (28 Grigg Drive, Simcoe).Residents can pick up one tall box and one small box per address at no cost.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Resolute to close Georgia newsprint machine despite better demand environment

Resolute to close Georgia newsprint machine despite better demand environment by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted May 5, 2016 7:25 am MDT Last Updated May 5, 2016 at 1:12 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Resolute Forest Products is permanently shutting one of its U.S. newsprint machines even though demand is showing signs of stabilizing after years of dramatic decreases.The Montreal-based pulp, paper and lumber producer said a machine at its mill in Augusta, Ga., isn’t competitive because of the high U.S. dollar. About 100 jobs will be affected by the closure.The move, announced Thursday, will leave Resolute with three newsprint machines in the U.S., along with seven in Canada whose competitiveness is helped by the lower loonie.Demand for newsprint has fallen by double digits annually in recent years as readers increasingly turn to digital media.While long-term market conditions remain challenging, the pace of the decline in North American and global markets decelerated to five per cent in the first quarter, giving Resolute hope that demand will level out.“We believe that we may be close to the floor that we were expecting three years ago (and) we’re certainly a lot more encouraged by the numbers that we are seeing,” CEO Richard Garneau said during a conference call on Resolute’s first-quarter results.Resolute (TSX:RFP) recently announced price increases for newsprint in the United States amid reductions in industry capacity and improvements in demand.“We have certainly a better outlook to indicate profitably could be better in the coming quarters,” Garneau told analysts.The company also announced a loss of US$8 million, or nine cents per share, in the first quarter ended March 31 — an improvement from a loss of US$33 million or 35 cents per share in the first quarter of 2015. Sales fell to $877 million from $920 million, but the impact was offset by the positive impact of a weak Canadian dollar and lower expenses.Excluding special items, Resolute had an $18-million loss in the first quarter or 20 cents per share — little-changed from a year earlier.Resolute had been expected to lose 22 cents per share in adjusted earnings on US$902 million of revenues, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters. read more

DNA tests have confirmed the remains of Scott Van Zyl inside a crocodile. Thursday 20 Apr 2017, 9:46 PM DNA TESTS PERFORMED on the carcass of two crocodiles shot dead in Zimbabwe have confirmed that they contains the remains of a missing hunter.An investigator told the BBC that within the crocodiles were the remains of missing South African Scott Van Zyl.Van Zyl disappeared while on a hunting safari last week, and investigator Sakkie Louwrens said that he was killed on the banks of the Limpopo river in southern Zimbabwe.Louwrens, who is the director of South African NGO The Heritage Protection Group, said Van Zyl had gone on a hunting trip on the border between the two countries with a local tracker and a pack of dogs.Van Zyl and the tracker went off in different directions in search of crocodiles, and the alarm was raised when the dogs returned to their camp without him.He was traced to the river bank, where his discarded rucksack was found.Louwrens said: “Permission was given for three Nile crocodiles in the area to be shot, and one of them contained Mr Van Zyl’s remains.Subsequent DNA tests have proved the remains to be those of Mr Van Zyl.The hunter was married, and had two children.The deaths of four people were linked to attacks by crocodiles in Zimbabwe in the past year.Read: Russia moves to ban ‘extremist’ Jehovah’s Witnesses by seizing group’s propertyRead: One police officer killed, one wounded in Paris attack Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Le rover Curiosity bientôt prêt à rallier Mars

Posted on by

first_imgLe rover Curiosity bientôt prêt à rallier Mars La Nasa termine la préparation de son rover Curiosity et effectue les derniers réglages avant son départ pour Mars, d’ici la fin de l’année. La mission du rover Curiosity a coûté 2,5 milliards de dollars. Initialement prévu pour 2009, plusieurs problèmes techniques avaient obligé la Nasa à repousser de deux ans l’expédition martienne. Ce rover, alimenté par une pile nucléaire, aura pour objectif de déterminer si la planète rouge a un jour abrité la vie. Pour accomplir sa mission, Curiosity est doté des instruments les plus sophistiqués qui soient. Pourtant, le rover n’est finalement pas équipé de la caméra HD en trois dimensions mise au point en partenariat avec le réalisateur James Cameron. La Nasa a justifié ce choix en indiquant que le temps manquait pour pouvoir correctement tester la lentille de l’appareil. Toutefois, Curiosity reste le rover le plus complet et le plus complexe jamais mis au point. Le 5 avril 2011 à 20:01 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Five years later, the franchise is coming to an end, and will hold its last panel at Comic-Con Friday evening.The latest “Sharknado” TV movies haven’t had as much bite ratings-wise as before, and now they’re ending.According to TVLine, Syfy has decided to conclude the franchise with the sixth film. “Sharknado 6” will have a time travel theme and bring back stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Vivica A. Fox.The original campy TV movie swam into pop culture history in 2013 — thanks to fans who couldn’t get enough of its plot about a cyclone causing flying sharks to attack Los Angeles and they live-tweeted it into infamy.The 2014 sequel, “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” pulled in major ratings with 3.9 million viewers, but that number dropped by more than half by the time the fifth movie, “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming,” debuted in 2017.In studio to tell us more about “The Last Sharknado” is Director Anthony C.

Israeli court blocks governments natural gas plan in blow to energy firms

Posted on by

first_imgIsrael’s Supreme Court blocked a controversial plan to develop the country’s natural gas fields on Sunday, dealing a blow to energy companies operating in the eastern Mediterranean and drawing fire from the government.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached a deal last year with Texas-based Noble Energy and Israel’s Delek Group that would leave them in control of the country’s largest gas field, Leviathan, while forcing them to sell smaller, yet sizable, assets.The agreement also provided an outline for the next decade, with the government committing to leave taxes, export quotas and other regulation unchanged, and the companies agreeing to develop Leviathan at an accelerated pace.The court, however, said the government was not in a position to make such long-term commitments on regulations and blocked the plan on those grounds.That commitment “that binds the government to the outline, including no changes in legislation and opposing legislative initiatives for 10 years – cannot stand,” the court said in its ruling.It gave the government a year to come up with an alternative arrangement or the outline will be cancelled.“The (court) decision’s negative consequences on the development of the gas market, on energy security, on the Israeli economy and on the lost revenue for the state of Israel and its citizens, could be very tough, and even irreversible,” said Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz.Noble and Delek have held off on developing Leviathan until the deal with the government was approved, but had planned to start production in 2019.The deal reached by the government would have also encouraged new energy companies who have been waiting for regulatory uncertainty to clear up before investing in exploration.However, it also drew a lot of opposition including from public advocacy groups and opposition lawmakers, who said it would still have left Noble and Delek in control of too much of Israel’s gas.Steinitz said he still hoped the government would find a way to encourage development of the offshore gas fields, and would explore its options in the coming days.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
