Media Statement: Fisheries Act fails to deliver UK environmental leadership

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

UK Environment Lawyer Sarah Denman:

"The UK Government championed the Fisheries Act as the key piece of Brexit legislation to ensure world-leading sustainable fisheries management. But it fails to deliver on this promise.

“Without a legal requirement for fishing at sustainable levels in line with scientific advice, there is no way to ensure the health of our oceans and prevent overfishing. And by failing to make sustainability the key objective of the Act, the Government missed the opportunity to support both marine life and the coastal communities that depend on it.

“It’s now critical that future fisheries policy prioritises sustainability and marine protection if the UK has any hope of delivering on its ‘world leading’ environmental promises.”


Other Media | SeafoodSource: Multiexport gets Dow Jones Sustainability Index rating for second consecutive year

CHILE
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

For the second year in a row, Puerto Montt, Chile-based salmon farmer Multiexport Foods has been invited to form part of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), one of the most important rankings when it comes to environmental and social governance (ESG) issues, the company announced in a statement.

Multiexport Foods improved its ranking 6 percentage points when compared to last year’s version of companies with the best sustainability management in the “Food Products” industrial sector. The recognition comes just a few days after Multiexport was included in Coller FAIRR 2020, another important ESG indicator that reviews the main protein-producing companies, in which the salmon company ranked fifteenth globally.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: A report by Apromar shows the difference between Spanish aquaculture and the rest

SPAIN
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Between two great masses of land and water, Spain is the gateway to Europe and the bridge to Africa. Its geographical location and its peninsular layout make Spain a privileged environment. A country rich in flora and fauna, with a special emphasis on life in the water. And all this, thanks to its more than 8,000 km of coastline and its 9 large rivers. Not to mention the lakes, reservoirs and tributary rivers. All together constitute the aquaculture fish culture water of Spain.

The Spanish aquaculture sector is already a benchmark on a European and global level. Despite the strong competition suffered by fish from other countries such as Turkey, the cultivation of aquatic species in Spain does not stop growing.

Furthermore, the United Kingdom and Greece are the only countries that exceed the Spanish aquaculture data in production volume, according to the latest APROMAR report.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Spain and France make a common front in defense of a 'satisfactory agreement' with the United Kingdom

EUROPEAN UNION
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

The fisheries administrations of France and Spain have shown their union in the face of the challenge posed by Brexit in terms of fishing. It was evident in the bilateral telematic meeting that the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, held with the new French Minister of the Sea, Annick Girardin, last Friday.

The ministers of Spain and France agreed on the need to reach a "satisfactory agreement" on fisheries, the MAPA highlighted in a press release. For this, they trust that the new Cabinet of the British Prime Minister will show "a greater rapprochement between the United Kingdom and the European Union."

Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: The consumption of fishery products in Spain between 2015 and 2019 falls from 25.9 to 22.5 kilos person / year

SPAIN
Monday, November 23, 2020

During the last five years, the consumption of fishery products in Spain has fallen 3.4 kilos per person and spending has fallen 5.9 euros per capita. In the period 2015-2019, the highest consumption occurred in 2015, with 25.9 kilos per person; while the highest spending also took place in 2015, with 201.0 euros per consumer.

In the family of fishery products, the evolution of per capita consumption during the 2015-2019 period has been different for each type of product, although in all cases there is a decrease. Regarding the demand of 2015, while fresh and frozen fish, and shellfish, molluscs and crustaceans, there were significant decreases; consumption of canned fish is practically constant.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Fish farm fire sparks mass escape

AUSTRALIA
Monday, November 23, 2020

At least 50,000 salmon have escaped into the wild following a fire at fish farm in southern Tasmania.
Huon Aquaculture said the fire broke out late last night (UK time), melting part of the pen and allowing the fish to slip through into the open sea.

“The fire damaged approximately a third of a pen, burning through and melting the pen infrastructure above and just below the waterline,” the company said in a statement.

Peter Bender, Huon Aquaculture CEO, said the fire melted the infrastructure and has resulted in a fish loss at Huon’s Zuidpool lease.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Danish Industry Welcomes New Minister

DENMARK
Monday, November 23, 2020

The Danish Fishermen’s Association has welcomed the appointment of Rasmus Prehn as the country’s new Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Rasmus Prehn.

The appointment comes at a tumultuous point, as the industry sees itself as under threat on all sides from a government that seeks to impose increasingly strict regulation, the looming unknown quantity of the approaching Brexit, and the problems resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rasmus Prehn replaces Mogens Jensen who resigned last week in the wake of the mink cull scandal and the ensuing protests that took place in Copenhagen this weekend as farmers and fishermen congregated in the capital to make their feelings known.

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

NORWAY
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.
