IN BRIEF - 352 GenSan fishers remain missing after ‘Pablo’

PHILIPPINES
Saturday, January 19, 2013

DAVAO CITY—The overall commander of the search operations for people missing 44 days after Typhoon Pablo struck the eastern part of Mindanao has called off the search.

Lt. Gen. Jorge Segovia, commander of the Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) announced the decision in a statement on Wednesday but assured relatives of the missing that he has still placed on standby all the military assets used in combing the affected areas

For the meantime, he said, the personnel involved in the search would be shifted to the ongoing relief distribution for the affected villagers and the rehabilitation of the damaged rural areas and flattened towns.

Among the missing were 352 fishermen from General Santos City, who left days or weeks earlier before the typhoon struck on Dec. 4 last year. They were aboard 47 fishing vessels that also continued to be unaccounted for.

The last incident of a survivor rescued was on Jan. 12, he said, while the last retrieved body, all at sea, was on Jan. 10.

IN BRIEF - Relaxation of seafood ban: government recommends five more exporters to EU for clearance

EUROPEAN UNION
Saturday, May 30, 2015

 

The Government has recommended five more seafood exporting companies to the European Union (EU) for the lifting of ban. An EU delegation is in Pakistan to what Federal Minister for Ports and Shipping Kamran Michael said assess the available seafood stocks as Islamabad had short-listed the names of five more local exporters to undergo the Union's quality standards test for the lifting of ban.

 

Two exporters already have got an EU nod for the export of seafood products to the European market. "We have sent to them (EU) five new names which are expected to be approved this month," the federal minister told a briefing here at Marine Fisheries Department (MFD) Wednesday. Vowing to address all the lingering issues the fishermen were facing, the minister said soon seven Pakistani companies would be exporting seafood products to the EU markets.

While fish exports already had started from Gwadar port, the resumption of seafood exports to Europe was a good sign for the country's economy, the federal minister said. The minister said a regional office of MFD and a laboratory would be set up by July at Gwadar at a cost of Rs 46 million to deal with the fishing related certification issues in the provincial district. A similar facility was already working in Peshawar to check the seafood smuggling to the neighboring countries.

IN BRIEF - SeaDragon sinks into the red on rising factory cost

NEW ZEALAND
Saturday, May 30, 2015

 

SeaDragon, which manufactures fish oil for health supplements, sank into the red in the latest financial year as ballooning costs for its Omega-3 fish oil refinery offset sales that more than doubled.

 

The Nelson-based company reported a loss of NZD 2.8 million, or 0.19 cents per share, in the 12 months ended March 31 2015, from a profit of NZD 431,000 of 0.04 cents, a year earlier, it said in a statement. The company had already signalled it would likely be in the red this year, reflecting a NZD 3.2 million increase in the cost of building the refinery. SeaDragon also wrote down the value of its Squalene by-product Alkoxyglycerol by NZD 905,000, which it's retaining to try and squeeze residual fish oil in 2016.

Sales soared to $6.3 million from NZD 3.1 million a year earlier, and SeaDragon said it had secured more Squalene raw material supplies, which should ensure revenue in 2016 will improve.

IN BRIEF - 600 jobs could be at risk as Young's Seafood battles to keep GBP 100 million contract with Sainsbury's

UNITED KINGDOM
Saturday, May 30, 2015

 

Grimsby seafood giant Young's is understood to be in a fierce battle to keep a huge GBP 100 million fish processing contract with Sainsbury's, with hundreds of jobs and even a factory on the line should it be lost.

 

The Telegraph has learned it is competing with world-leading salmon farming business Marine Harvest to retain the supermarket's own-label work, after the Norwegian-owned global player moved into processing, buying factories in Scotland and Poland.

All parties involved are bound by strict confidentiality terms, and unable to comment, but sources close to the Ross House business told of the huge risk attached to any shift away from Grimsby.
