Other Media | Korea News Plus: Green Grass CEO Shin Seung-ho & medical foods

Sunday, August 09, 2020

Green Grass founding CEO Shin Seung-ho appears to be a genuine entrepreneur. The farmer-turned-businessman has attempted to develop foods, which cure diseases over the past 18 years.

On the belief that “diseases caused by bad foods should be healed by good foods,” Shin has pulled out all the stops to make the “good foods,” otherwise called “medical foods.”

His tenet is to optimize the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio _ he tries to come up with foods, which are high in omega-3s. Toward that end, he created a dedicated brand of “Sunseo Omega-3.”

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Global Tuna Alliance calls for a 25 percent reduction in yellowfin tuna catches

Sunday, August 09, 2020

The Global Tuna Alliance, a body that works with Friends of Ocean Action to eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing in tuna fisheries, has published independent management advice and proposals for action for the Indian Ocean yellowfin. In a new report, the Global Tuna Alliance calls for a 25% reduction in catches to help rebuild the overfished stock in two generations.

Leading scientists agree that the Indian Ocean yellowfin tuna stock is overexploited and has been subject to overfishing since 2016. Management measures implemented by the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) have not been effective for the recovery of the population, despite indications that this stock could collapse around the beginning of 2024. Many fishing fleets are not subject to catch reductions and have increased their catches.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Pelagic catcher for Donso owners

Sunday, August 09, 2020

When the original supplier for the hull of new German-flagged, Swedish-owned pelagic trawler Kristin NC-336 unexpectedly dropped out, this brought both bad news and good for the owners and Karstensens Skibsværft, which expected to complete the new vessel for its Donsö-based owners.

As the hull construction was switched to Karstensen’s own yard in Poland, the delay also coincided with changes in German regulations relating to fishing vessel capacity, with the allowable tonnage limit raised from 800 to 1000gt, making it possible to extend Kristin’s capacity before construction had begun.
