Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: FAO analyzes the impact of COVID-19 and estimates that catches will decrease slightly in 2020

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Aquaculture production will decline slightly for the first time in years

The pandemic sets the pace for the world economy and fisheries and aquaculture are not marginal sectors. "Global catches are expected to decline slightly in 2020 as overall there is reduced fishing effort due to COVID-19-related restrictions on fishing vessel crews and poor market conditions," he says FAO.

But fishing is not the only sector affected. The organization points out that "fish supply, consumption and commercial income are expected to decline this year due to the impact of containment restrictions on demand, logistics, prices, labor and business planning"

IN BRIEF - Mackerel sushi production starts in Fukui

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

The production of a winter delicacy, fermented mackerel sushi, has begun in a mountainous area of Fukui Prefecture on the Sea of Japan coast.

A group of eight people gathered at a facility in the town of Kitadani on Sunday to prepare the preserved food for the year-end and the New Year.They stuffed 360 mackerels, each measuring about 40 centimeters long, with rice mixed with ginger, vinegar and koji mold, which helps the fermenting process. The fish was then placed in containers.

The group plans to prepare 1,800 pieces of sushi, which is 100 more than it made last year. It expects demand to rise, as people are spending more time at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. The group says it will put its products on sale in mid-December, mainly at local roadside facilities.

Other Media | Fisker Forum: Tensions Grow Ahead Of NEAFC Gathering

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

With NEAFC due to meet this week, tensions are already rising around Norwegian tactics concerning stocks in Areas I and II, notably redfish and Greenland halibut.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

After the entry of the United Kingdom into the European Union, the distribution of the waters was almost complete between the British and their European neighbors, a situation that could take a turn if London and Brussels do not reach a Brexit agreement.

The United Kingdom has, like the rest of the countries, an exclusive economic zone (EEZ), which is 200 miles along its coasts, except when two States are separated by a lesser distance, such as between the United Kingdom and France in the canal. de la Mancha, where the waters are delimited by international law and various criteria depending on the area.
