IN BRIEF - Fishermen warn of ‘mayhem’ on seas in event of no-deal Brexit

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Fisherman Michael Cavanagh has no doubts about the potential for violence on the high seas in the event of a no-deal Brexit at the end of the month.

The Greencastle-based skipper , says that just after the initial March 29th deadline passed, an Irish crew fishing for crab off Scotland got a nasty shock, even though there had been an extension.

“They went to haul their pots, but 400 of them had already been hauled and the eye (which crabs crawl through) had been cut out of all the pots. And it wasn’t Boris Johnson who did it.”

PORTLAND, Oregon - Allied Market Research recently published a report, titled, "5 Major Aquaculture Market by Fish Type (Pompano, Snappers, Salmon, Milkfish, Tuna, Tilapia, Catfish, Seabass, and Others): Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018–2025".

Increase in fish production to meet food supply, technological advancements in the field of aquaculture, and rise in demand from livestock and fisheries have boosted the growth of the global 5 major aquaculture market. However, surge in temperature and water pollution hampers the market growth. On the contrary, evolution in inland fishing and use of more sustainable technology in aquaculture is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the near future.
