Othe Media | SeafoodSource: On Election Day in the US, much hangs in the balance for the seafood industry

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, November 04, 2020

Tuesday, 3 November is Election Day in the United States, and the results of the national election could have a significant impact on the nation's seafood industry and the global economy.

Thus far, the tenure of U.S. President Donald Trump - who is up for reelection to a second and final four-year term - has been marked by both positives and negatives for the seafood industry. The Trump administration instigated an ongoing trade war with China by placing tariffs on Chinese goods in July 2018, a move that China reciprocated by placing its own tariffs on U.S. goods – including seafood.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: The EU plans to further open its market to Chinese tuna loins without tariffs

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, November 04, 2020

Germany raised the proposal to 40,000 tons, after Poland requested 80,000

There are the Spanish tuna boats that chirp. So much effort that they have put into exhibiting their social sustainability and so much effort made to improve the fishery and advance towards environmental sustainability, differentiating themselves from other fleets under suspicion, so that now the EU comes and it occurs to them to consider the possibility of crossing the door even further Asian tuna loins, those caught by boats identified for illegal fishing and, what is worse, for labor exploitation and for violating human rights.
