Other Media | EuropaAzul: MSC calls on the Spanish market to enhance the offer of certified sustainable fishing tuna products

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Despite the fact that our country is a powerhouse in tuna, tuna from certified sustainable fishing is not present in a significant way on the supermarket shelves. Tuna is one of the most popular fish traded around the world, either canned or fresh. However, fishing it sustainably can be challenging.

To shed light on the sustainability of this species, the Marine Stewardship Council, a non-profit organization that has been working to safeguard life at sea for more than 20 years, has published a new edition of the MSC Sustainable Tuna Guide, now in Spanish.

120,000 tonnes of salmon were exported in October worth NOK 6.5 billion.

In October, seafood was exported worth NOK $ 10.4 billion (NOK $ 1 = US $ 0.11). This is a decrease in value of 5 percent, or NOK 573 million, compared to October last year.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: FAO analyzes the impact of COVID-19 and estimates that catches will decrease slightly in 2020

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Aquaculture production will decline slightly for the first time in years

The pandemic sets the pace for the world economy and fisheries and aquaculture are not marginal sectors. "Global catches are expected to decline slightly in 2020 as overall there is reduced fishing effort due to COVID-19-related restrictions on fishing vessel crews and poor market conditions," he says FAO.

But fishing is not the only sector affected. The organization points out that "fish supply, consumption and commercial income are expected to decline this year due to the impact of containment restrictions on demand, logistics, prices, labor and business planning"

IN BRIEF - Mackerel sushi production starts in Fukui

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

The production of a winter delicacy, fermented mackerel sushi, has begun in a mountainous area of Fukui Prefecture on the Sea of Japan coast.

A group of eight people gathered at a facility in the town of Kitadani on Sunday to prepare the preserved food for the year-end and the New Year.They stuffed 360 mackerels, each measuring about 40 centimeters long, with rice mixed with ginger, vinegar and koji mold, which helps the fermenting process. The fish was then placed in containers.

The group plans to prepare 1,800 pieces of sushi, which is 100 more than it made last year. It expects demand to rise, as people are spending more time at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. The group says it will put its products on sale in mid-December, mainly at local roadside facilities.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

Other Media | Fisker Forum: Tensions Grow Ahead Of NEAFC Gathering

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

With NEAFC due to meet this week, tensions are already rising around Norwegian tactics concerning stocks in Areas I and II, notably redfish and Greenland halibut.

‘Norway’s aims are maximising quota share for own fleet, sometimes with very generous bilateral arrangements with the Russian Federation that serve mainly to strengthen Norway’s quota claim,’ commented a spokesman for the European North Atlantic Fisheries Association (ENAFA) which represents EU-based fishing companies with long track records of operating in distant waters, including the Barents Sea.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: How will the situation for fishermen change if there is no Brexit deal?

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

After the entry of the United Kingdom into the European Union, the distribution of the waters was almost complete between the British and their European neighbors, a situation that could take a turn if London and Brussels do not reach a Brexit agreement.

"If there is no agreement, each will have to settle for their own," says the National Committee of Marine Fishermen and Marine Cultures (CNPMEM), which represents French fishermen.

The United Kingdom has, like the rest of the countries, an exclusive economic zone (EEZ), which is 200 miles along its coasts, except when two States are separated by a lesser distance, such as between the United Kingdom and France in the canal. de la Mancha, where the waters are delimited by international law and various criteria depending on the area.
