Other Media | WorldFishing: Bycatch donations aid food security

Thursday, November 12, 2020

A new study of a bycatch donation programme in Alaska highlights its value in cutting waste, while addressing food security and social value.

In 1996, NOAA Fisheries and the North Pacific Fishery Management Council established the ‘Prohibited Species Donation Program’ to make it possible for fishermen to donate some bycatch to hunger relief organisations. Jordan Watson, NOAA Fisheries biologist at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center and author of the study suggests that the programme could serve as a model to help mitigate waste around the world.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Lerøy Seafood Group sees revenue, profits fall for Q3

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Lerøy Seafood Group, co-owners of Scottish Sea Farms, today posted a fall in third quarter revenue of NOK 329 million (£27.5 million).

Salmon was not the main culprit, however. The company said the most significant factor behind the lower earnings was pressure on the whitefish market resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, and the change in catch composition compared with Q3 2019.

Lerøy is not only one of Norway’s largest salmon farmers, it also operates a powerful trawler fleet whose main catch is cod, haddock and saithe, along with a major seafood processing business.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: MSC calls on the Spanish market to enhance the offer of certified sustainable fishing tuna products

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Despite the fact that our country is a powerhouse in tuna, tuna from certified sustainable fishing is not present in a significant way on the supermarket shelves. Tuna is one of the most popular fish traded around the world, either canned or fresh. However, fishing it sustainably can be challenging.

To shed light on the sustainability of this species, the Marine Stewardship Council, a non-profit organization that has been working to safeguard life at sea for more than 20 years, has published a new edition of the MSC Sustainable Tuna Guide, now in Spanish.
