North Atlantic tropical cyclones usually form in the northern hemisphere summer or fall. Tropical cyclones can be categorized by intensity. Tropical storms have one-minute maximum sustained winds of at least 39 mph (34 knots, 17 m/s, 63 km/h), while hurricanes have one-minute maximum sustained exceeding 74 mph (64 knots, 33 m/s, 119 km/h).[1] Most Atlantic tropical storms and hurricanes form between June 1 and November 30.[2] The United States National Hurricane Center monitors the basin and issues reports, watches and warnings about tropical weather systems for the Atlantic Basin as one of the Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers for tropical cyclones as defined by the World Meteorological Organization.[3]
Tropical disturbances that reach tropical storm intensity are named from a predetermined list. Hurricanes that result in significant damage or casualties may have their names retired from the list at the request of the affected nations in order to prevent confusion should a subsequent storm be given the same name.[4] On average, 10.1 named storms occur each season, with an average of 5.9 becoming hurricanes and 2.5 becoming major hurricanes (Category 3 or greater). The climatological peak of activity is around September 10 each season.[5]

>> WWF offers apology and removes tra fish from their consumer red list

>> Vietnam Fisheries Association asks WWF to apologise

>> WWF temporarily removes tra fish from consumer red list

>> Ministry declares WWF assessment inaccurate, seeks answers

>> Vietnam asks for clarification of WWF’s assessing methods

>> WWF's disapproval of Vietnam's major seafood exports stirs strong opposition

Vietnam’s Fisheries Directorate signed a long-term cooperation agreement with the WWF on tra fish sustainable development on Dec.17.

Under the memorandum of understanding, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) pledged to support Vietnam in achieving the Aquatic Stewardship Council (ASC) certification for sustainable development. The certification is regulated by the WWF and the Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative in 2009.

Accordingly, WWF will finish preparations for the assistance work in the first half of 2011, including the organisation of seminars and training courses for Vietnamese fish farmers and processors, to create a consensus among them in applying ASC standards.

At the signing ceremony, Mark Powell, the International Global Seafood Leader of WWF, said ASC shows new progress in tra and basa fish breeding. However, Vietnam needs more time and efforts to achieve the certification. He also pledged to seek financial sources to support Vietnam to earn the certification.

According to the MOU, Vietnam will attain sustainable development international certificates for 25% of exported tra fish between 2011 and 2012, with 10% to be certified by ASC.

The target by 2015 is to have 100% of exported tra fish achieving international standards on sustainable development, with half being certified by ASC.

Nguyen Huu Dung, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers said the WWF’s goal to help Vietnam gain ASC certification in the future is in line with Vietnam’s goals and cooperation should be no problem.

The Fisheries Directorate reported that WWF officially removed Vietnamese tra fish from its consumer red list on December 17 and encourages buyers to continue buying the product.
