ICELAND
Thursday, November 19, 2020

Iceland Seafood International (ISI) last night completed the acquisition of the specialist Irish smoked salmon products company Carr & Sons in a deal worth almost £6 million. The official purchase price is €6.5 million or 1 billion Icelandic kroner (ISK).

In parallel with the acquisition of Carr & Sons, Iceland Seafood has also acquired a 33 per cent share in the fish processing plant Oceanpath in Ireland for 9 million euros, (equivalent to ISK 1.5 billion). Sixty percent of the purchase price will be paid in cash and 40 per cent in new shares in Iceland Seafood.
Oceanpath, which acquired a 67 per cent share in the business in March 2018, will now be wholly owned by ISI. The move will make Oceanpath the largest producer of fresh seafood in Ireland.

Inshore fishermen will close the website through which they sell on the 27th

Halloween, Black Friday, Cyber Monday ... Except Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving), globalization has filled a commercial calendar like the Galician calendar with North American appointments, which previously hardly knew more than Rebaixas, Offer or Liquidation. Castilianized as Black Friday, the day that was previously held on the last Friday in November has expanded to occupy a fortnight of the month and has been adding more and more commercial sectors. The fishing boat was not going to be less.

DENMARK
Thursday, November 19, 2020

The last hope for a UK-EU trade and fisheries deal before the New Year is fading, jeopardizing food exports to the UK and leading to billions of dollars in losses. Thus. Danish fishermen and food companies are preparing for a hard 'Brexit that can mark a before and after and subject to tight tariffs and overwhelming bureaucracy.

Negotiations have stalled and the prospect of light winds over the Brexit negotiations now appeared to be replaced by gusts of hurricane force and even darkening storm clouds.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Irish court action challenges EU fishing quota system

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, November 19, 2020

With European Union fisheries ministers getting ready for their annual quota-setting negotiations next month, an Irish environmentalist group has been given leave by the High Court for a judicial review aimed at challenging the E.U. regulations setting 2020 fishing quotas under the bloc's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

The Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE) said it’s taking the action (a judicial review is a High Court review or examination of legislation or the decisions of lower courts) because of the E.U.’s failure to meet its own legally defined deadline of ending overfishing in all stocks by 2020.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Chinese fishery firm signs deal with Papua New Guinea

CHINA
Wednesday, November 18, 2020

A Chinese fishing company has signed an agreement to invest in a new fisheries-focused industrial park in Papua New Guinea.

Fujian Zhong Hong Yu Ye Co. signed the agreement with Papua New Guinea Fisheries Minister Lino Tom, and Taboi Yoto, governor of PNG’s western province, to invest in the construction of the Comprehensive Multifunctional Fishery Industrial Park. Details of the new fisheries industrial park remain scant but may sync with a local government quest for increased value add activity in tuna.

Headquartered in the capital Port Moresby, the National Fisheries Authority has sought investors to build out its tuna processing industry, with much of the catch traditionally shipped to Japan and South Korea, as well as to processing plants in the Philippines.

Out of the 23 restaurants, 11 were largely operating on a takeout only basis due to an indoor dining restriction that the state of California enacted at the beginning of July.
