Otros Medios | Industrias Pesqueras: Oceana critica que la nueva Ley de Pesca de Reino Unido permitirá que la sobrepesca continúe

Saturday, November 14, 2020

El proyecto de Ley de Pesca de Reino Unido concluyó ayer en el Parlamento británico su trámite legislativo “mientras las esperanzas de que el Reino Unido lidere el camino hacia la pesca sostenible se desvanecen”, asegura la ONG Oceana en un comunicado. El documento legal incluye “un escaso compromiso legal para pescar de manera sostenible”, a pesar de haber sido “muy elogiado” por los ministros como la oportunidad del Reino Unido para mostrar “la gestión pesquera ‘estándar de oro’ como estado costero independiente después del ‘brexit’”. Oceana critica a los ministros “que se han inclinado ante la presión de la industria pesquera para permitir que continúe la sobrepesca, en lugar de establecer obligaciones legales para poner fin a la sobrepesca”.

IN BRIEF - Herring fishery to slow down for rest of 2020

Friday, November 13, 2020

ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) — The New England herring fishery is slowing down for the rest of the year because fishermen are approaching their quota for the fish.

Fishermen will be unable to fish for or possess more than 2,000 pounds of herring per trip in the inshore Gulf of Maine until Dec. 31, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has ruled. The rules went into effect on Wednesday.

Herring are the subject of a large fishery on the East Coast, but the industry has struggled in recent years due to a decline in population. Fishermen caught less than 25 million pounds of the fish last year after catching more than 96 million pounds during the previous year.

Friday, November 13, 2020

At the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg, the launching ceremony of the MT1112XL longliner processor Marlin, commissioned by Globus LLC, founded by a partnership of fishing collective farms of the Arkhangelsk Region, took place.

“The program for the most powerful renewal of the fishing fleet became possible thanks to the decision of the President of the Russian Federation, who signed the law “Quotas in exchange for investments ”. Thanks to this law, 53 new fishing vessels are currently being built at domestic shipyards. I want to thank everyone for the fact that, despite the lack of confidence in the competencies of our shipyards, you showed by your work that everything is possible, ”Ilya Shestakov said in his speech.

The “Marlin” is designed for longline fishing - the safest for the aquatic ecosystem, having a minimal impact on the seabed and allowing you to fish strictly specific species of fish without damaging other types of aquatic biological resources, while preserving the food base and juvenile fish. The longline vessel will be equipped with a modern fish processing plant capable of handling the catch and producing various types of frozen fillets, as well as canned liver and cod roe.

Marlin targets cod, haddock, catfish, halibut, perch, ruff and flounder in the North, Norwegian and Barents seas.
