Tuesday, March 07, 2023

In addition to the EU Action Plan for fishing, the deployment of offshore wind power contemplated in the Maritime Space Management Plans (POEM) was another of the issues addressed in the last plenary session of the Galician Fisheries Council.

The Minister of the Sea, Rosa Quintana, regretted that this planning "lacks" in its design the "necessary dialogue with the autonomous communities and the sectors involved" and that it does not properly guarantee, as she explained, the compatibility of the implementation of this industry with the fishing activity and the preservation of the ecosystem.

IN BRIEF - Highlighting advantages of landing in Shetland

Monday, March 06, 2023

Land in Shetland, a joint campaign by Lerwick Port Authority and Shetland Islands Council to encourage more skippers to land their catches in the isles’ fish markets, has launched the first in a series of promotional videos along with a dedicated website.

At this time of high fuel prices, there are clearly significant cost and carbon footprint savings to be made from landing in Shetland.

New state-of-the-art fish markets in Lerwick and Scalloway have substantially increased daily landing capacity and the modern infrastructure, including its efficient chilling, ensures best quality of produce is maintained.

More than half of all the fish landed in the UK comes from within 100 nautical miles of Shetland, and with such first-class facilities and support services available, it makes clear sense to land in Shetland.

The videos, featuring fishing skippers and port and industry representatives, highlight the benefits to boats:

  • Time and money saved from reduced steaming to fishing grounds
  • Electronic auction with prices as good as if not better than markets elsewhere in Scotland
  • Easy berthing and fast, efficient landing into chilled markets
  • Ready availability of support services such as ice, boxes, engineering
  • Carbon footprint reduced.
