Other Media | SeafoodSource: Waitrose stands by Indian Ocean yellowfin tuna, but urges IOTC to reduce catches

Friday, November 06, 2020

United Kingdom supermarket chain Waitrose & Partners will continue to source yellowfin tuna from fisheries in the Maldives and Sri Lanka, but is calling on the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) to adopt a rebuilding plan for the stock.

As previously reported by SeafoodSource, a number of retailers and food companies have announced in recent weeks that they would be reducing the amount of yellowfin tuna that they are sourcing from the Indian Ocean amid concerns about overfishing. According to a statement issued by Waitrose, it would instead be working collaboratively with fishers, suppliers, governments, NGOs and other stakeholders to demand that improvements are made to the fishery’s management.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Food and industry chiefs in Brexit plea

Friday, November 06, 2020

The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation has joined with other leading bodies in the country’s food and drink sector in a plea to the Prime Minister for more time to deal with the impact of Brexit.

In an open letter to Boris Johnson the industry chiefs express concern that uncertainty over Brexit is compounding pressures on the industry as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The letter says: “What we do in the next 60 days is critical to the survival of many food, drink, farming, fishing and seafood businesses and the supply chain and jobs they support.”

It warns that the “fallout from a no-deal would be catastrophic” and calls for a six-month grace period in which the rules that will require those selling products to Europe to produce export health certificates and other documentation would be suspended or relaxed.

IN BRIEF - Astilleros Murueta will build a freezer fishing room for a subsidiary of Royal Greenland

Thursday, November 05, 2020

Astilleros Murueta will build a fourth freezer fishing vessel for the Greenlandic shipowner Qaleralik, a company owned by the Royal Greenland group, reported Pymar, the association of private shipyards.

The ship, which will have the shipyard number C-326, will be the fourth ship manufactured by Murueta for the same shipowning group and will have a construction period of 26 months. The first two were delivered last year and the third is under construction.

The new vessel will be an 82-meter-long fishing-freezer factory, with capacity for 30 people. The design has paid special attention to maneuverability in icy waters, as it will operate in eastern and western Greenland, the Labrador coast, Iceland and the northeast Arctic.

In addition to the capture, processing and freezing of fish, it includes a system for packaging and marking the product for its subsequent distribution and commercialization in real time, while the vessel is working.

To assume the assignment, Murueta has obtained financing and the guarantees of ICO, Bankinter and Pymar. The guarantees granted by Pymar have been through the Naval Guarantees Fund, an instrument in which the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, the Basque Government and the Xunta de Galicia participate, among others.

IN BRIEF - Nodosa has launched the freezing trawler Montelourido

Thursday, November 05, 2020

The marine shipyard Nodosa Shipyard launched yesterday the vessel "Montelourido", a latest generation deep sea freezer trawler specialized in catching squid in the South Atlantic that will be used by the Ferralemes company. Precisely three years ago Nodosa delivered the ship "Monteferro" for this same shipowner group, a boat with similar characteristics that highlights its inverted bow, especially designed for working conditions in rough seas.

The variations of this new unit with respect to the previous one are in the freezing and cellar capacities, as well as in the engine power, which are substantially increased. This was precisely the main challenge for this new ship, as it was about increasing capacities without changing the tonnage volume, of less than 1500 GT. The new boat also benefited from the innovations that have appeared on the market in the last three years, once again placing special emphasis on all those that result in comfort for the crew, respect for the environment and energy efficiency. Thus, with 63.70 meters in length by 12 in beam, the "Montelourido" will be at the forefront of equipment and systems to make it a benchmark in its sector.

The Nodosa shipyard is located in a prominent place in the construction of this type of vessels after the delivery this year of the “Argos Cíess” for the Pereira Group, the “Terranova Island” for Pesca Baquero, in addition to five larger trawlers reduced for the Netherlands and another two for Germany.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Huon extends retail reach throughout Australia

Thursday, November 05, 2020

Tasmanian farmer Huon has increased its presence in the retail market following by supplying Australian grocery chain Woolworths with a new range of RSPCA-approved frozen salmon.

Woolworths, which is not linked to the now-defunct UK chain of bargain stores, has more than 1,000 outlets in Australia and New Zealand. Its parent company, Woolworths Group Ltd, is the largest company in Australia by revenue.

The move by Woolworths follows an announcement by Huon two weeks ago that Australia’s other grocery store giant, Coles, had begun stocking four of its RSPCA-approved salmon products in its outlets across New South Wales. Between them, Woolworths and Coles control around 80% of the grocery market in Australia.
