Other Media | The Fish Site: Women in aquaculture: Sophie Ryan

Saturday, November 21, 2020

When talking to people about the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI), one of the most common questions I get asked is how did a young woman end up being CEO of a global organisation mainly dominated by men?

So, I thought I’d share some of my experience of working with salmon farmers and to share how good, and sometimes unexpected, things can happen.

GSI is a global CEO-led organisation, committed to using collective action to have a positive impact. The mission is not just to significantly improve the sustainability performance of salmon farming but to do so through greater collaboration and transparency.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The European Commission will present an evaluation on electric fishing before the summer of 2021

Friday, November 20, 2020

At the last session of the Fisheries Committee of the European Parliament, an ICES report on electric fishing was presented, which in recent years was developed mainly in the Netherlands. The approval of the Regulation of Technical Measures meant the prohibition of this fishing gear, in part due to pressure from NGOs.

The ICES report, advanced by IP, points out that electric fishing poses a minimal risk to the benthic community and that it helps reduce unwanted catches. Before the presentation of the text by Mark Dickey-Collas, president of the ICES advisory committee, a representative of the European Commission pointed out that before the summer of 2021 an evaluation of the first year of application of this regulation will be published.

Otros medios | WorldFishing: New working groups focus on UK Shellfish

Friday, November 20, 2020

Three new groups have been formed to provide a forum for industry, regulators and researchers to improve the management of shellfish fisheries around the UK.

The Shellfish Industry Advisory Group (SIAG) is focused on the strategic issues and is covering trade issues, competition for marine space and the management measures that need to be in place to ensure the sustainable management of individual species.

A key priority for the SIAG is the development of a National Shellfish Fisheries Plan. Barrie Deas, chief executive of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations and chair of the SIAG, said that shellfish was the UKs most valuable fishery. “In 2019 over 137,000 tonnes of shellfish were landed in the UK, at a value of over £370 million,” he said.
