WINDHOEK, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Namibian government's decision to close off the Walvis Bay Production Area for mussel harvesting after mussel samples from the production area were confirmed for diarrheic shellfish poison, has brought mussels sector trade in the area to a halt.

According to traders, the once thriving mussels business was much slower.

Peter Schneider, Manager of Kuiseb Marine Farming who runs a mussels business said that operations have come to a standstill. Kuiseb Marine Farming had to close doors for operations for three months because of the poisoning.

"We cannot harvest mussels at all during this time. This means that there is no product coming in and there aren't products to sell either, unless we have stock left over from before," said Schneider on Friday.

The situation is expected to persist as there are no solutions in sight and traders have to wait until the time the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources declares mussels fit for consumption.

"What we can do from our side is to harvest as much mussels as possible during the periods we are allowed to in efforts to build up on our stock," said the mussels trader and farmer.

The mussels sector generates about half a million Namibian Dollars (about 37,000 U.S. dallars) in revenue per year with five tons of mussels harvested in a month.

WELLINGTON Josh McRoberts Jersey , Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- Renters and poorer families in New Zealand are much more likely to say it is hard to keep warm than those who own their own homes or earn more money, the country's statistics department Stats NZ said on Friday.

Just under one-third of all New Zealand households in 2015--16 reported that they experienced some energy hardship, the Stats NZ said in a statement.

Energy hardship means people struggle to afford their power bills Jose Juan Barea Jersey , or spend a larger part of their income on power, or often feel cold. This energy hardship figure is based on a variety of indicators developed from the Household Economic Survey (HES), Stats NZ said.

Energy hardship was much more common for households with lower incomes Jason Kidd Jersey , it said, adding that around two-thirds of low-income households experienced one or more energy hardship indicators, including being unable to pay power bills on time Harrison Barnes Jersey , putting up with feeling cold a lot, having major problems heating the home, and spending a large proportion of after-housing income on energy.

The data showed that renters are more likely to experience energy hardship Dirk Nowitzki Jersey , with 44 percent of renting households reporting at least one energy hardship indicator compared with 22 percent of households who owned their own home.

"There has been growing concern about the health and well-being impacts of living in a cold, damp home, especially for infants and retired people Devin Harris Jersey ," the department said.
