Other Media | The Fish Site: Why live tanks are the future of oyster storage

AUSTRALIA
Friday, January 22, 2021

Keeping oysters in live tanks rather than in the water where they’re grown helps reduce double-handling, ensures quality and opens up potential new markets.

Ask most battle-scarred oyster farmers where the best place to store their oysters is, and they’ll tell you the same water that they’re grown in. Obviously. But younger farmers are changing their tune.

Four years ago, Ewan McAsh, the co-founder of SmartOysters*, wouldn’t have dreamt of keeping his stock anywhere but the river. But after installing his first live tank in 2016 he became a convert.There are now three tanks in operation on his farm and he plans on adding seven more in the next 12 months.

MOROCCO
Friday, January 22, 2021

The capture of anchovies and sardines are two fundamental fisheries for Andalusian purse seiners. For the fleet in the Gulf of Cádiz, the agreement between the European Union and Morocco is key. “Our fishing ground is looking very good and we anticipate quota increases for both species next year, but for their good health it is very important to be able to fish in Morocco and give fishermen another alternative. It is important that the periodic reviews that the EU makes of its pacts are positive and that the agreement is keep, especially for the Barbate purse seine and for the bottom longline of that locality or of Conil and Algeciras.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Extra Quota Should Go Where It’s Needed

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, January 21, 2021

The NFFO argues that additional quota secured by the UK under the terms of the agreement with the EU should be used primarily to address cases where acute quota shortages threaten the viability of fishing vessels.

In a letter to Secretary of State George Eustice, the NFFO states that some areas of the fishing industry have already seen the emergence of sharp elbows and insularity about how to allocate the modest increases in additional quota secured by the UK under the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

CHILE
Thursday, January 21, 2021

A shutdown of salmon processing plants because of increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases in the island province of Chiloé in Chile could actually make the situation worse, a salmon farmer has warned.

Yesterday 53 new Covid-19 cases were confirmed in Chiloé, according to a report by the Los Lagos regional health ministry, a drop compared to the 117 cases announced on Monday.
