Other Media | FiskerForum: MSC Suspends Pelagic Fisheries Certification

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, December 02, 2020

The lack of effective international quota sharing agreements is cited as the reason for the Marine Stewardship Council’s decision to suspend MSC certification for blue whiting and Atlanto-Scandian herring fisheries from 30th December.

A year ago, certification for NE Atlantic mackerel was suspended with the same justifiction. This latest suspension affects eight certificates covering EU, Norwegian, Icelandic, Russian, Faroese and Greenlandic, fisheries, plus those that become UK fisheries as Britain becomes a coastal state in its own right from 1st January.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Criticism from member states and COVID delay ratification of the EU-Mercosur agreement

EUROPEAN UNION
Tuesday, December 01, 2020

France, the Netherlands and Austria have already announced that they will not ratify the EU Mercosur agreement, if Brazil does not improve its environmental actions. Some NGOs have also complained about the lack of measures to protect the Amazon rainforest, according to Efeagro-

For this reason, the entry into force of the agreement - with the aim of forging a trade zone between the EU27 and the Mercosur countries, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay - will be complex.

The procedure for ratifying the agreement is being criticized, with some even questioning the content of the trade agreement. In particular, Brazil's environmental policy is being questioned by some member states.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Lower demand in the HoReCa segment puts Multiexport Foods in the red

CHILE
Tuesday, December 01, 2020

More fish but less demand.

The Chilean salmon farmer Multiexport Foods posted its Q3 results dated end of September with an operating income of USD 106 million, down 21 per-cent than reported in the same period in 2019.

EBIT reached minus USD 18.0 million, compared to USD 5.5 million in Q4 2019. It said that this was mainly explained by lower sales prices.

The effect that the pandemic has had on lower demand, mainly in the HoReCa segment (hotels, restaurants and catering), as well as the higher production in Chile with a growth of 15.4 per-cent for the quarter compared to the same period of the year last year, are the main factors that explain the drop in prices,” wrote Multiexport.

SPAIN

Other Media | SeafoodSource: FAO: Farmed fish price increases to outpace those for wild species

WORLDWIDE
Tuesday, December 01, 2020

Increased demand for seafood and slowing growth of fisheries and aquaculture production will see prices increase by almost a quarter over the next 10 years, projects the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Its report “The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2020,” (or SOFIA 2020), expects total fish production to rise from its current level of 179 million metric tons (MT) to around 204 million MT in 2030. While this will represent an increase of some 15 percent, by comparison, for the period 2007-2018 that rate of growth was a much more dynamic 27 percent.
