Other Media | The Fish Site: Could cucumbers help salmon sector grow by 20 percent?

Friday, February 05, 2021

A project exploring how sea cucumbers could help minimise the environmental impact of fish farming - and in turn allow the aquaculture sector to grow - has received vital investment.

Blue Remediation has secured a £46,449 funding package from the UK Seafood Innovation Fund, with additional support from the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC), to conduct a three-month feasibility study that will assess the efficiency of sea cucumbers in absorbing aquaculture waste.

Bioremediation – the process of using living organisms to remove pollutants and toxins – is commonly used in agriculture to restore polluted soil.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Second chance for floating enclosed salmon farm plan

Friday, February 05, 2021

A huge floating enclosed salmon farm concept is to be looked at again by Norwegian authorities following an appeal.

Friday, February 05, 2021

Horizon Fisheries, Blueyou Trading, and Fair Trade USA, the partners behind the world’s first ever dual-certified seafood product, are in the process of rolling out an expansion plan with Maldivian fishing communities and global retailers, according to a 3 February press release.

The dual certification involving the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Fair Trade labels, which was achieved in 2017, signifies that the tuna caught using pole-and-line gear by the fishing communities from five islands in the Maldives is sustainably managed, and that fishers are treated in socially equitable ways.

Friday, February 05, 2021

The UK’s only remaining distant waters fishing vessel is left with few fishing opportunities following the turmoil of Britain’s departure from the European Union, and UK Fisheries’ Advisory Board Chairman Sir Barney White-Spunner wants to see more fishing diplomacy, now that fishing access and trade are clearly linked.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Canary Islands start the bluefin tuna catch season one month in advance

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Until now, the Canarian fishermen had to endure a month without directing their gear to the bluefin tuna because, despite the fact that the species was already passing by its coasts in February, the season did not begin until March. But this year things have changed. The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries published two resolutions yesterday in the Official State Gazette (BOE) that aim to "substantially improve the conditions of the bluefin tuna fishery with respect to previous years."

The decision to advance the campaign for this highly migratory species by one month and open it on February 8 is one of those improvements.

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Sonapesca analysis shows that, although there are products that have had an increase in sales abroad, there are other markets in which there is a decrease due to the consequences of Covid-19.

Wednesday, February 03, 2021
