Other Media | The Fish Site: Why Europe should be taking seaweed aquaculture seriously

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, January 20, 2021

How and why seaweed aquaculture should be promoted in Europe is the subject of a new recommendation from the EU’s Aquaculture Advisory Council.

There is a growing appreciation of the benefits – social, economic and environmental – that seaweed aquaculture can bring about and the new publication sets these out clearly and concisely.

Increased seaweed cultivation in EU waters gives substantial potential for a new source of biomass for food, feed and industrial uses. In addition, the production process provides relevant ecosystem services, such as nutrient and carbon sinks and habitats for marine microlife and fish reproduction.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Brexit chaos compensation will be £23m, PM says

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Scottish seafood exporters have called for more details after Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared to promise a £23m compensation fund for businesses affected by customs chaos following the end of the Brexit transition period.
The Prime Minister’s pledge came on a day of protest as more than 20 lorries, representing angry seafood exporters, staged a go-slow protest in Whitehall. The protest went off peacefully although the Metropolitan Police said 14 people, all either drivers or passengers, have been reported for Covid-related offences.
Boris Johnson said: “Where business, through no fault of their own, have experienced bureaucratic delays, difficulties getting their goods through and when there is a genuine, willing buyer on the other side of the Channel, and they’ve had a problem, then there’s a £23m compensation fund that we’ve set up and we’ll make sure that they get help.”
