Other Media | FiskerForum: Extra Quota Should Go Where It’s Needed

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, January 21, 2021

The NFFO argues that additional quota secured by the UK under the terms of the agreement with the EU should be used primarily to address cases where acute quota shortages threaten the viability of fishing vessels.

In a letter to Secretary of State George Eustice, the NFFO states that some areas of the fishing industry have already seen the emergence of sharp elbows and insularity about how to allocate the modest increases in additional quota secured by the UK under the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Chile: Covid shutdown 'could make things worse’

CHILE
Thursday, January 21, 2021

A shutdown of salmon processing plants because of increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases in the island province of Chiloé in Chile could actually make the situation worse, a salmon farmer has warned.

Yesterday 53 new Covid-19 cases were confirmed in Chiloé, according to a report by the Los Lagos regional health ministry, a drop compared to the 117 cases announced on Monday. However, the situation is of great concern to residents, mainly in the salmon processing centre of Quellón, where MPs have requested that the salmon farming plants temporarily suspend operations to reduce infections.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Why Europe should be taking seaweed aquaculture seriously

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, January 20, 2021

How and why seaweed aquaculture should be promoted in Europe is the subject of a new recommendation from the EU’s Aquaculture Advisory Council.

There is a growing appreciation of the benefits – social, economic and environmental – that seaweed aquaculture can bring about and the new publication sets these out clearly and concisely.

Increased seaweed cultivation in EU waters gives substantial potential for a new source of biomass for food, feed and industrial uses. In addition, the production process provides relevant ecosystem services, such as nutrient and carbon sinks and habitats for marine microlife and fish reproduction.
