Othe Media | SeafoodSource:Japan’s fisheries white paper outlines measures to boost fisheries in FY2020

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Japan recently released a comprehensive white paper on fisheries that contains extensive plans to boost its fisheries and fishing industry in the hopes of reversing negative trends.

Japan’s fishing industry has been in a long decline since the loss of access to the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the United States, and a sharp reduction in quota for Russian waters in the early to mid-1980s. Those losses prompted a government-sponsored rationalization fleet reduction. Effort was shifted to sardines in Japanese waters, but the stock soon collapsed, never to return to such high levels.

The number employed in fishing has also been declining.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Investigation examining MSC suspension of Zoneco Group scallop certification continues

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

A resolution has yet to be found for the suspension of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification of Zoneco Group Co’s scallop fishery.

A dispute between the seafood company and the third-party accreditor overseeing the certification saw China’s first MSC fishery certification suspended earlier this year. In January of 2020, the first notice for suspension of fisheries certificate came due to a contractual issue between the certifying agency Acoura – a unit of U.K. based Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) – and Zoneco (also known as Zhangzidao), the MSC noted in a statement to SeafoodSource.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Russian Pollock plant gears up for September start

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Commissioning equipment has begun at the Russian Pollock factory being built by the Russian Fishery Company (RFC) in Primorsky Territory in the Russian Far East, ahead of a 1st September commissioning date for the new factory.

The Russian Pollock factory is the largest fish processing enterprise in Primorsky Territory, built under the Russian government’s investment quotas programme to boost the fishing and shipbuilding sectors.

‘Large-scale construction is possible entirely due to investment quota program. I am confident that investment construction is today the most effective and only possible way for our fishing industry to become a driver for the development of coastal regions and individual industries,’ said Gleb Frank, Chairman of the Board of Directors of RFC.

Other Media | Global Aquaculture Alliance: Ascending U.K. prawn farms now riding out the coronavirus storm

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Despite the unprecedented disruption caused by COVID-19, the UK’s two commercial shrimp farming ventures continue to capitalize on the market’s growing demand for trustworthy, locally produced food

Brits love shrimp. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. In the United Kingdom, the word “shrimp” tends to refer to the small brown species Crangon crangon, which is common to the country’s coasts. As delicious as these are, the shrimp most coveted by U.K. consumers are better known in the market as “prawns,” mainly comprising the sweet, coldwater Pandalus borealis, caught in the Barents Sea and fisheries around Iceland, Greenland and northern Canada, and also the larger, widely farmed warmwater white-legged and black tiger varieties, Penaeus vannamei and Penaeus monodon, respectively.
