Thai Union has partnered with conservation organisation The Nature Conservancy (TNC) on a commitment to full transparency in its global tuna supply chains to help combat illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: WWF: Mediterranean fisheries need far greater protection

Thursday, March 04, 2021

Protecting 30 percent of the Mediterranean Sea in specific areas will reverse the declining fish stock trend seen in the region and support the recovery of the wider ecosystem, according to new analysis compiled by WWF scientists.

While the E.U. last year pledged to protect 30 percent of land and sea areas by 2030, currently only 9.68 percent of the Mediterranean Sea has been designated for protection, with only 1.27 percent deemed as effectively protected. In its “30 by 30: Scenarios to recover biodiversity and rebuild fish stocks in the Mediterranean” report, WWF maintains that fish stocks will continue to decline if unsustainable fishing and other industrial activities continue.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: COVID-19 weighs on the import and export capacity of fishing in Spain

Wednesday, March 03, 2021

The value of exports fell by 13%; that of imports, 14.5

The pandemic has not prevented Spanish exports from the agri-food, fisheries and forestry sectors from improving, in global terms, in 2020. The “COVID Report - Foreign Trade, situation of the agri-food and fisheries sector” puts the value of 40,997 million euros in exports registered in the period between the months of April to December 2020, compared to 39,905 million in the same period of 2019. It is 2.7% more.

However, the news for fisheries is less positive: both exports and imports have fallen.
