Other Media | NZ Herald:Maritime tensions: China's 'dark fleet' now targeting waters near Japan

Wednesday, July 29, 2020

It's been a gruesome mystery for years: the wrecks of wooden boats crewed only by skeletons found adrift in the Sea of Japan, which is also known as the East Sea.

But these 'ghost ships' have become a macabre spectre: More than 150 washed ashore last year alone. Some are split in half. Others are empty, but eerily intact. Some carry dead crews. A few hold steadfastly silent survivors. All were clearly North Korean.

Japanese authorities assumed the poverty-stricken fishers had sailed too far for too long in a desperate hunt for increasingly scarce fish. Or that they were defectors from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's authoritarian regime.

Other Media | Aquaculture iPac: Spanish aquaculture has shown a significant degree of resilience to the situation caused by COVID-19

Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Representatives of the aquaculture sector, through APROMAR; capture fisheries, processing, and retail fishmongers, among others, participated this past Friday in a webinar organized by the Technological Platform for Fisheries and Aquaculture (PTEPA) to address the current situation in which these sectors are found as well as the innovative solutions put in place to adapt to the new times.

In this framework, Javier Ojeda, manager of the Spanish Aquaculture Business Association (APROMAR), who started - as did the other speakers - highlighting the essential role, not only of the primary sector but of the entire value chain in supply of food in the market during the state of alarm, wanted to draw attention to the fact that the resilience shown by the aquaculture sector could be verified "with satisfaction".

Other Media | The Fish Site: US catfish industry enters a new era

Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Despite severe economic challenges over the years, the US catfish farming industry is now advancing again thanks to new technologies and production strategies - including the use of split ponds.

Industry advocates point out that the country’s catfish farmers are now producing their fish on less land for lower costs, while also reducing environmental impacts.

Many of the pioneers in US catfish farming were already aquaculture veterans, having been involved for years in pond culture of buffalo fish in Arkansas and surrounding states. By the late 1950s at least two buffalo farms in Arkansas had also started producing channel catfish.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Proposed US tariffs on EU seafood products nearing end of consultation period

Wednesday, July 29, 2020

A bevy of seafood products from the European Union could be the target of new tariffs by the United States, stemming from a dispute over European subsidies for Airbus.

Starting in October, several mainly premium goods from the E.U. – such as Scotch whisky, cashmere, cheeses, and others – have carried a 25 percent tariff, with salmon and other seafood products barely avoiding a tariff in the trade spat. The tariffs stem from U.S. criticisms of what it calls over-subsidization of Airbus by European governments, with the World Trade Organization (WTO) allowing the U.S. to take USD 7.5 billion (EUR 6.3 billion) in retaliatory tariffs, BBC news reported.

IN BRIEF - Focus on primary industry job growth welcomed by seafood industry

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

The launch yesterday of the Ministry for Primary Industries’ (MPI) new website on jobs is welcomed by the seafood industry.

The Opportunities Grow Here website was launched by Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor and aims to encourage New Zealanders into jobs in the primary sector.

Seafood New Zealand Chief Executive, Jeremy Helson says traditionally it has been difficult to fill jobs in the industry, particularly seagoing positions, and this will be a great resource for employers.

Fishers, farmers and growers will be essential to spearhead the export-led growth that will be needed to cushion the economic effects on New Zealand post COVID-19.

The New Zealand seafood industry employs around 20,000 people and generates more than $2 billion in export revenue.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Ireland raises alarm bell for Brexit deal

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Irish fishermen face a "serious and deadly threat" to their livelihoods if a trade deal on Brexit cannot be reached this year, new Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary said. A large potential loss of fishing areas for fishermen, currently shared with the UK in the event of a no-deal scenario, shows the magnitude of the threat. Calleary highlights the critical need to reach an agreement on time.

“The situation is serious, and I met the fishing organizations and the processing organizations, it was actually my first meeting. It is a very deadly threat to their livelihoods and their future, "Calleary said.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Port of Bilbao incorporates into its services the first dual-propulsion tug built in Spain

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

The first dual-propulsion tug built in Spain already operates in the Port of Bilbao. With the name of "Ibaizabal Quince", it is a unit powered by liquefied natural gas and diesel. The ship was baptized in a ceremony that included various authorities, among other authorities, from the Basque Government's Minister for Economic Development and Infrastructure, Arantxa Tapia. The tug has involved a great engineering effort, due to the novelty of the design and represents "an important step to advance the provision of even more sustainable ships", indicates Bilbao Port.

The “Ibaizabal Quince”, built in the Murueta Shipyard, is owned by the Ibaizabal Towing Company, holder of the license to provide the port towing service in the Port of Bilbao.

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

The world’s largest buyer of salmon has been hit by Covid-19.

The big talking point in the salmon market on Friday was unconfirmed information that Mowi-owned Morpol was affected by the coronavirus. Morpol is the world’s undisputed largest buyer of salmon, with a total processing capacity of 150,000 tonnes annually.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: New eye-in-the-sky service for fish farmers

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Aquaculture technology supplier Umitron has launched a web-based service to allow fish farmers to monitor ocean data.

PULSE provides a high-resolution map view of a range of water quality parameters which are updated daily. The service utilises satellite remote sensing technology to provide the accurate, near real time measurements.

Umitron, based in Singapore and Japan, said its system gives fish, shellfish, and seaweed farmers an easy way to regularly monitor changing water conditions, enabling them to make key decisions about when to feed, plant, or harvest their crops as well as manage risks such as high water temperatures or harmful algae blooms.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Thai Union welcomes news shrimp rating

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Thai Union Group has welcomed the latest rating for its Thai farmed shrimp from Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, which shows the country’s positive progress to reach a 'Yellow Good Alternative' rating.

Shrimp farming methods in Thailand have improved since Seafood Watch made its last assessment, prompting the change in rating from ‘Red’ to ‘Yellow’. Thai farmers now manage their water quality more effectively and have reduced their water exchange with the environment.
