Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: FAO warns that the impact of COVID in the sector could be extended in the long term

Tuesday, February 02, 2021

COVID-19 and its “serious” effects on the fisheries and aquaculture sector are to a large extent centering the debates taking place in the framework of the 34th meeting of COFI, the FAO Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture, which runs until Friday. The delegations addressed a new report on the impact of the pandemic on fishing from which it can be inferred that, once the official statistics are closed, a decrease in fisheries and aquaculture production will be certified.

At the outset, the report indicates that "fish supply, consumption and commercial revenues for 2020 are expected to have decreased due to restrictions.

Other Media | The Fish Site: 'Designer algae' could make bivalve hatcheries 10 times more efficient

Tuesday, February 02, 2021

A way of creating ‘designer’ algae that could increase the efficiency of production of shellfish larvae for the aquaculture industry has been developed by scientists in Scotland.

The Scottish mussel aquaculture industry currently produces around 8,000 tonnes a year using wild larvae and is therefore reliant on a successful spawning year. This method is also a limiting factor in the expansion of the industry, which has the potential to become a major part of Scotland’s economy.

However, scientists at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) have discovered a new way of farming larvae in a hatchery by feeding them with algae which have been selected and grown in a laboratory for optimal growth.

Other Media | FiskerForum: MPA Fishing Ban – Another Industry Sell-Out

Tuesday, February 02, 2021

The NFFO has hit back at the Marine Management Organisation’s announced intention to outlaw towed gears in the Dogger Bank SAC and the majority of three other offshore MPAs, describing the move as a ‘further sell-out of fishing’.

Describing the announcement as a shocking development, with a decision following zero consultation with those affected, NFFO assistant chief executive Dale Rodmell commented that the knock-on effects of what he called a brutal approach will lead to displaced fishing effort.

‘We have worked with managers and government conservation advisors for more than a decade on this site.

Tuesday, February 02, 2021

Neil Hornby takes charge of the UK Center for Environmental Sciences, Fisheries and Aquaculture

Neil Hornby has taken over from him as the new CEO of CEFAS (Center for Environmental Sciences, Fisheries and Aquaculture), the UK scientific body.

An objective that, after 'Brexit', acquires even more relevance.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Seafood exporters see positive signs in China despite COVID concerns, shipping crunch

Monday, February 01, 2021

Seafood exporters are predicting a recovery in the Chinese seafood market this year after a bruising 2020.

China’s economic outlook improved last week, after it reported overall GDP growth of 2.3 percent for 2020, after a strong recovery in the fourth quarter. The country has weathered the last year better than most large Western economies, which spent far more on support to laid-off workers, compared to a Chinese emphasis on virus control measures. Whereas the U.S. economy declined by 23 percent in GDP compared to the same period last year and the Eurozone economy declined by 21 percent.
