PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A major fishery off New England will be slowed down considerably in September in an attempt to protect the fish’s population.
Atlantic herring are the target of a large fishing industry. They’re used for food as well as bait. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the inshore Gulf of Maine’s fishery for herring will be effectively shut down until Sept. 30.
The fishery is being shuttered for the month because fishermen are approaching a quota limit, the agency said. The shutdown began Aug. 23.
The herring fishery has been subject to tighter quotas in recent years because of concerns about the health of the fish’s population. Fishermen typically caught more than 100 million pounds of the fish per year earlier this decade, but caught only 24.7 million pounds last year.
A determination to educate its customers on the importance of eating locally produced seafood has got new U.K. fishmonger business Cormacks Seafood off to a flying start.
Opened on 28 July in Totnes, Devon, the start-up shop is one of many seafood businesses in the United Kingdom to have turned its head to the domestic market using locally landed fish and shellfish. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, around 80 percent of the country’s seafood was exported, while most of the seafood consumed in the market was imported.

The Norwegian state has lodged an appeal after losing a court case involving Hav Line’s farmed salmon factory ship Norwegian Gannet, which was used by Mowi Scotland during a period when it was harvesting more fish than its processing facilities could handle.
In November 2018, on the day before the vessel’s naming ceremony, the then fisheries minister Harald Nesvik reversed the Norwegian Food Safety Authority’s decision that Hav Line’s operation to harvest and process fish and take them directly to a distribution centre in Denmark was legal.

Interest in tank-based shrimp production systems has been increasing in recent years in North America and Europe, while it's also slowly gaining traction in tropical regions too.
Factors driving this trend include proximity to markets and the ability to offer fresh product to consumers. This strategy reduces the need for cold chain middlemen, in both developed and less-developed regions. Questions of resource availability, especially land and water (in this case brackish or saline water) have also sparked interest in tank-based shrimp farming in tropical regions.

Companies expect a change in trend in the third quarter
The value of Vietnamese pangasius exports fell by 29.8% in the first half of June compared to the same period in 2019, to 612.3 million dollars. The cause, the pandemic.
