IN BRIEF - Stopping Somalia's pirates by building a fishing industry

SOMALIA
Thursday, January 09, 2020

Not so long ago, the coast of Somalia was plagued by pirates.

At the peak of the problem, in 2011, there were 237 incidents of piracy off Somalia and the Gulf of Aden (the sea separating Somalia and Yemen), accounting for more than half of all such incidents worldwide. The pirates would often hold shipping crews hostage for ransom. Somali piracy cost an estimated $6.6 billion in 2011 in international naval activities, maritime security, insurance and other costs.

A couple of years earlier, a group of Danish businessmen and journalists decided they might be able to help. They founded an NGO called FairFishing to "turn Somali pirates into fishermen" and improve lives on the Horn of Africa by building up local businesses and creating jobs in sustainable fishing.

They weren't alone in seeing the potential of Somalia's fishing industry. The country has the longest coastline in Africa and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates it has the potential to sustainably catch 200,000 tons of fish per year, over six times more than the most recent catch estimates.

IN BRIEF - Strength measurement affects activity of jigging squid fleet

ARGENTINA
Tuesday, January 07, 2020

The S.O.M.U. (Union of Maritime Workers United), as a result of not having received answers about the request for a basic salary increase, it started an activity stoppage starting at 6 pm last Friday, which affects the foal vessels, the employers of CAPA, CEPA, INDEPENDENT COMPANIES and other Chambers.

Given this situation, trade unionists and businessmen said that the Ministry of Labor would probably decree the mandatory conciliation on Monday.

The squid season begins on January 10 and for this the conflicts must be resolved beforehand so as not to cause damage to the workers and the fishing activity.

IN BRIEF - Indonesia mobilizes fishermen in stand-off with China

INDONESIA
Tuesday, January 07, 2020

In an unusually strong statement, President Joko Widodo told reporters: “There is no negotiation when it comes to our sovereignty.”

The stand-off since last month in the northern Natuna islands, where a Chinese coastguard vessel has accompanied Chinese fishing vessels, has soured the generally friendly relationship between Jakarta and Beijing.

Indonesia’s chief security minister, Mahfud MD, told reporters that around 120 fishermen from the island of Java would be sent to the Natuna islands, some 1,000 km (600 miles) to the north.

“We want to mobilize our fishermen from the north coast and maybe in turn from other areas to operate by fishing there and other things,” Mahfud said.

Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country, said last week it was sending more warships to the area.

IN BRIEF - Study shows impact of climate change on fishing economy

UNITED STATES
Monday, December 23, 2019

With the Gulf of Maine warming faster than 99% of the world’s oceans, it makes sense there would be impacts on fish stocks and the fishermen who depend on them for a living.

While several studies have demonstrated that marine inhabitants are on the move trying to find cooler water, the data on how climate change is affecting fishermen has been hard to come by. Other factors — cuts to fish quotas, the closing of more areas to fishing, and gear changes to rebuild fish stocks or protect endangered species such as the right whale — also could affect the fishing industry and disguise the impact of ocean warming.

EUROPEAN UNION
Monday, December 23, 2019

The 2018 implementation report of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) is now available. It summarises EMFF implementation across EU countries and sea basins according to specific topics during the period 2014-2018. The report is based on data provided by the Member States in 2019, covering the period from January 2014 to December 2018.

In terms of activities, the report shows that most funding went to data collection on fisheries and aquaculture activities (EUR 362.4 million committed) which helps improve stock assessments and understanding of the state of these sectors, including socio-economic conditions.  Control and enforcement (EUR 293.5 million committed) and productive investments in aquaculture (EUR 241.5 million) came in the second and third positions.
