Other Media | FiskerForum: A New Voice For Ireland’s Fishing And Seafood Sectors

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Saturday, February 06, 2021

A new organisation established to represent all sectors of Ireland’s fishing, seafood and ancillary service industries has a number of agendas – and high on the list is seeking recognition by government and the Department of Marine that the seafood industry in Ireland requires their urgent intervention to redress the devastating effects of Brexit.

The Irish Fishing & Seafood Alliance (IFSA) has already been endorsed by some of the country’s largest and most prominent industry groups and is a self-funding, non-profit organisation, not constrained by any existing regional political divisions, nor is it divided by differing industry sector interests.

CHILE
Friday, February 05, 2021

Initiative financed by the Innovation Fund for Competitiveness of the Regional Government of Coquimbo, will formulate new foods for fish grown in the northern part of the country, based on the study and generation of flours from by-products of the fishing and aquaculture industry, such as molluscs and crustaceans . In this way, the project promotes the development of circular economy initiatives in the area.

"We seek to provide added value to these biological remains because they have high levels of nutrients that are feasible to be used in the manufacture of animal feed," explains Dr. Pedro Toledo, academic at the Universidad Católica del Norte and project director.

IN BRIEF | Norwegian salmon makes a splash in Spain and the Netherlands

NORWAY
Friday, February 05, 2021

Demand for salmon is increasing in many parts of the world, which is why Lerøy has expanded beyond its home market. Now Norwegian salmon products are also being made in the Netherlands and Spain.

The whole world wants salmon, and that is what it will get. Salmon, cod, fish cakes and coated products are all produced, caught and processed locally in Norway for the domestic market, but a growing quantity is also processed overseas. It is both sold locally and exported.

As well as increasing the turnover of a Norwegian company, this creates jobs in other countries. Last but not least, it gives even more people access to healthy, sustainable seafood.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Could cucumbers help salmon sector grow by 20 percent?

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, February 05, 2021

A project exploring how sea cucumbers could help minimise the environmental impact of fish farming - and in turn allow the aquaculture sector to grow - has received vital investment.

Blue Remediation has secured a £46,449 funding package from the UK Seafood Innovation Fund, with additional support from the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC), to conduct a three-month feasibility study that will assess the efficiency of sea cucumbers in absorbing aquaculture waste.

Bioremediation – the process of using living organisms to remove pollutants and toxins – is commonly used in agriculture to restore polluted soil.

NORWAY

A huge floating enclosed salmon farm concept is to be looked at again by Norwegian authorities following an appeal.

MALDIVES
Friday, February 05, 2021

Horizon Fisheries, Blueyou Trading, and Fair Trade USA, the partners behind the world’s first ever dual-certified seafood product, are in the process of rolling out an expansion plan with Maldivian fishing communities and global retailers, according to a 3 February press release.

The dual certification involving the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Fair Trade labels, which was achieved in 2017, signifies that the tuna caught using pole-and-line gear by the fishing communities from five islands in the Maldives is sustainably managed, and that fishers are treated in socially equitable ways.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Linking Trade And Fisheries Opens Opportunities

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, February 05, 2021

The UK’s only remaining distant waters fishing vessel is left with few fishing opportunities following the turmoil of Britain’s departure from the European Union, and UK Fisheries’ Advisory Board Chairman Sir Barney White-Spunner wants to see more fishing diplomacy, now that fishing access and trade are clearly linked.

He pointed out that up to the end of 2020, Hull-registered factory trawler Kirkella was able to fish in Greenland, Norway and Svalbard for cod and haddock.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Canary Islands start the bluefin tuna catch season one month in advance

SPAIN
Thursday, February 04, 2021

Until now, the Canarian fishermen had to endure a month without directing their gear to the bluefin tuna because, despite the fact that the species was already passing by its coasts in February, the season did not begin until March. But this year things have changed. The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries published two resolutions yesterday in the Official State Gazette (BOE) that aim to "substantially improve the conditions of the bluefin tuna fishery with respect to previous years."

The decision to advance the campaign for this highly migratory species by one month and open it on February 8 is one of those improvements.
