SPAIN
Monday, July 13, 2020

The Ricardo Fuentes Group has inaugurated new facilities in Huelva. This business group operates in more than twenty countries, it has allocated 1.4 million euros in a new space for wholesale and the production of fishery products. The 1,000 square meters of surface make up a shellfish cooker.

After a few months of uncertainty on land and sea, fishing companies take up positions on the Huelva dock. Some of them take important steps towards their growth, which is a sign that good winds blow. This is the case of the Ricardo Fuentes e Hijos Group which, since yesterday, has had modern facilities in front of the new fish market in Huelva, reinforcing its presence in the Andalusian community, where Cádiz, El Puerto de Santa María is already very close to the fish market of the largest fishing port in Andalusia: Isla Cristina.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Carrefour signs an agreement with the Roquetas de Mar fish market to distribute swordfish

SPAIN
Monday, July 13, 2020

Carrefour has reached an agreement with the Almería fish market in Roquetas de Mar to buy 70 tons of swordfish until the end of the year. This amount represents the total quota of four boats, so the agreement with Carrefour "ensures the viability of these boats and their crews," the hypermarket chain said in a statement.

The measure is part of the chain's support policies with the Spanish fishing sector, among which are other actions such as the agreement, through Puerto Celeiro, with a group of Spanish shipowners to buy and market 200 tons of hake of skewer and fine whiting, during the past month of June.

Other Media | The Fish Site: A light clean for sensitive marine instruments

WORLDWIDE
Monday, July 13, 2020

An innovative antifouling device uses UV light to prevent mussels and barnacles – as well as algae, bacteria, and other microorganisms – from encrusting underwater sensors used in fish farms.

Biofouling, the accumulation of unwanted material on solid surfaces under water, can lead to the detriment of function, impeding or even interfering with aquaculture operations. For example, biofouling on nets is known to reduce oxygenation levels in pens, while even thin biofilms of algae can provoke misleading results by measuring equipment.

Relating to the latter, the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW) has developed a new antifouling UV spotlight.

IN BRIEF | New dates confired for 13th edition Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition and awards

ICELAND
Monday, July 13, 2020

Mercator Media Ltd has confirmed that, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 13th edition of the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition (Icefish) will now be held 15-17 September 2021.

Marianne Rasmussen-Coulling, Events Director of Mercator Media Ltd, explained the decision, “Given the global restrictions on travel and the effects that social distancing requirements will have on the operation of the exhibition, the team at Mercator Media has been examining alternatives and seeking the opinion of exhibitors. There is also the added uncertainty surrounding further possible government actions and restrictions, both in Iceland and abroad. We would all prefer that this was not the case, but in the circumstances, we believe rescheduling to 2021 is now the best option for exhibitors and visitors.”


Other Media | FiskerForum: EU co-operation with Mauritania to continue

EUROPEAN UNION
Monday, July 13, 2020

The EU has extended the protocol to the existing Fisheries Partnership Agreement (FPA) with the Islamic Republic of Mauritania for one year.

The protocol promotes responsible fishing and sustainable management of fishing resources, including enhanced transparency measures, according to the European Commission, which states that the extension ensures continuity in co-operation and further progress towards sustainable fishing.

The fisheries partnership agreement with Mauritania is the largest mixed agreement for the EU both in financial terms and in terms of fishing opportunities. Under the current framework with Mauritania, the EU fleet is authorised to fish in Mauritanian waters for shrimp, demersal fish, tuna and small pelagics, up to around 287,000 tonnes per year.

WORLDWIDE
Friday, July 10, 2020

In a recent webinar hosted by the aquaculture technology investment firm Hatch, an international panel of aquaculture leaders connected virtually to discuss the importance of sustainability in the industry and the space innovation on that front, now and in the future.

“The world now produces more than 155 million tons of seafood every year. Around 55 percent of that comes from aquaculture. As our population is growing, demand continues to rise, and within the next 50 years we will have to grow more seafood than we have ever grown in the entire existence of mankind,” said Moritz Mueller, the head of marketing and communications at HATCH. “At the same time, understanding the limits of our oceans and protecting them, in order to keep our planet healthy is an essential task.
