OTHER MEDIA | SeafoodSource: Fishing reps call on EU to take action against Norwegian fishing practices

Friday, July 05, 2024

Irish fishing representatives and E.U. advisory councils are seeking to tie Norway’s access to the E.U. market – which buys around 70 percent of Norway’s farmed salmon annually – to negotiations over fishery quotas, arguing that the Norwegian seafood industry should not be able to enjoy such large access to the E.U. while also fishing unsustainably in European waters.

The Irish Fish Producers Organization (IFPO) specifically wants to stop Norway’s practice of setting unilateral quotas for North Atlantic mackerel stocks – a practice IFPO said continues to endanger the stock’s sustainability.

IN BRIEF - Fish waste is proposed to be processed into bio humus using larvae

Thursday, July 04, 2024

Scientists from the Institute of Biology, Ecology, and Agrotechnology of Petrozavodsk State University (IBEAT) have developed a technology for processing fish waste into bio humus using the larvae of the tropical fly 'Hermetia illucens'. The larvae themselves can also become valuable raw materials for the feed and cosmetic industries.

IBEAT scientists suggest that fish processors use larvae to dispose of fish waste as a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional disposal methods. In the report, the scientists point out that during the digestion process, the larvae grind up the waste, extracting all the nutrients from the organic matter and reducing its volume by 80%. The output of the product is biohumus, which can be supplied to agricultural enterprises, and larvae, which can be further processed to extract Omega-3 and other useful substances.

The currently existing alternatives - waste incineration and burial - are both energy-consuming and expensive, pollute the environment, and leave an unpleasant odor at disposal sites. At the same time, waste processing by larvae does not harm the environment, is inexpensive, and allows you to get a valuable feed product, omega-3 acids, and vermicompost.

IN BRIEF - Morocco increases octopus quota by 19% for the upcoming season

Thursday, July 04, 2024

Morocco has announced a significant increase in its octopus quota for the upcoming season compared to last year, setting it at 17,200 tons, up 19%, Undercurrent News reports.

The total allowable catch for the season has increased in all fisheries sectors.

Morocco and Mauritania had recently announced that the octopus fishing season would begin on July 1. The announcement came as stocks fluctuated and demand in Europe increased as the summer tourist season began.

Morocco and Mauritania account for the majority of frozen octopus imports to the EU.

Sources say that octopus stocks in Italy are almost depleted, while in Spain there are still some left. Stock levels in these Mediterranean countries are currently the main influence on market dynamics and price fluctuations.

An industry expert told Undercurrent News that octopus prices are rising, an improvement he attributed to the "peak summer season," a period marked by increased consumption.
