IN BRIEF - Russian authorities stop imports of salmon from a Belarusian company on suspicion that it comes from Denmark

Thursday, September 14, 2023

Rosselkhoznadzor (The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision) suspended the supply of fish products to Russia from the Belarusian manufacturer RitMark LLC. The reason for the temporary restrictions is the import of products from raw materials of unknown origin, the department reports.

Rosselkhoznadzor, in connection with the ongoing supply of fish products to Russia from raw materials of unknown origin from the Belarusian production workshop of RitMark LLC, has decided to introduce temporary restrictions on the import of goods from this enterprise.

At the same time, the Danish competent authority did not confirm the authenticity of the issued veterinary certificates.

IN BRIEF - San Diego fishing industry working to hook more customers

Thursday, September 14, 2023

Many local restaurants aren't getting their fish from local fishers. The San Diego Fishermen's Association got a $300,000 federal grant to change that.

People who have been around San Diego for several decades will remember the familiar sight of scores of tuna boats docked along the Embarcadero.

But, by the 1980s, the industry had moved to the calmer waters of the western Pacific, and the tuna boats disappeared.

There is still a fishing industry in San Diego, and some fishermen here still catch tuna. But today it’s much more diverse.

“We got 150 to 200 boats in San Diego Harbor.  We harvest about 50 species of fish, and we don’t have a really organized way of marketing it to the public," said Pete Halmay, the president of the San Diego Fishermen's Working Group, part of the San Diego Fishermen's Marketing Association.

Recently, the association started working with the San Diego Regional Policy and Innovation Center to secure a $300,000 grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture to boost the local fishing industry.[...]

IN BRIEF - The technology company Satlink receives the Tuna Awards 2023 award for its circular economy project 'ReCon'

Thursday, September 14, 2023

Launched in December 2022, its goal is to recover buoys with echo sounder technology used in tropical tuna fishing and recondition them for scientific and environmental projects.
Madrid – The Spanish technology company Satlink received the Tuna Awards 2023 award last night, in the Blue Transition category, for its circular economy 'ReCon' Project to recover buoys used in tropical tuna fishing.
The presentation of these awards, promoted by Anfaco-Cecopesca and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA), took place in Vigo, in an event chaired by the general director of Fisheries Management, Ignacio Gandarias, and the councilor of the Sea, Alfonso Villares.
“Pioneer and unique in its field”, according to Iván Alonso, president of Anfaco and in charge of presenting the award, the 'ReCon' project has become one of the most important in the world, and marks the roadmap for the future of fishing sustainability, by recovering and reconditioning the echo sounder buoys used by the tropical tuna purse seine fishing fleet for scientific and environmental purposes, such as marking and monitoring marine litter, scientific studies or prevention of natural disasters, among others.[...]

IN BRIEF - St. Mary’s fish plant a ‘success story,’ says Mayor

Thursday, September 14, 2023

The past year has been something of a roller-coaster ride for St. Mary’s residents with regard to the newly re-opened fish plant. After the initial excitement of receiving a crab processing license last year, the town has met some frustrating setbacks this season. However, things are finally looking up again for the town, said Mayor Steve Ryan.

Obtaining the processing license was a major and protracted ordeal for St. Mary’s last year. The Province has long had a moratorium on the creation of new licences because of the overcapacity created in the 1970s and 1980s, when politicians handed out processing licences like bingo cards, which contributed to the conditions that caused the cod moratorium.

So, it was questionable whether St. Mary’s would even get a licence. In fact, the plant had had licences to process several species, but as the ownership of the facility changed hands over the years, the licences were eventually lost. With a new owner in place for the plant, Mayor Ryan and others lobbied hard to get a crab processing licence back for St. Mary’s because of the economic benefits that plant jobs would bring to the community.

This year, with the licence finally in place, came a new obstacle: the stalemate between the province’s harvesters and processors over the price to be paid for crab at the wharf.[...]

IN BRIEF - Government hold secret meeting on expanding commercial fishing bans

Thursday, September 14, 2023

Earlier this year, both the State and Federal Governments imposed bans on commercial fishing, and recently held a secret meeting to propose additional bans that would impact Queenslanders.

The government has introduced bans on commercial fishing practices, including the prohibition of Gillnets from the Great Barrier Reef by mid-2027 and reductions in the allowable catch limits for Spanish Mackerel.

David Bobbermen, CEO of the Queensland Seafood Industries Association, told Peter Gleeson on Drive, “Under the veil of secrecy the Queensland Government has been working away, toiling away, trying to put the knife in the back of Queensland commercial fisherman yet again…”

“From the department’s own website there will be at least 300-400 direct and indirect fulltime equivalent jobs lost…it represents nearly $20 million a year to the regional towns and communities throughout Queensland, so it’ll be quite devastating…” Mr. Bobbermen continued.
