Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Vietnam: electronic diaries and software to improve traceability

Friday, January 15, 2021

The Asian country is still under the threat of the yellow card for IUU fishing.

Vietnam, which remains under threat from the EU's yellow card for illegal fishing, is advancing its strategy to improve fisheries management and the traceability of its products. Vasep, the association of exporters, has announced that the Government is implementing new software to optimize electronic traceability in the seafood supply chain and is committed to introducing electronic diaries to improve the record of catches.

The administration of the Asian country recalls that the traceability of fishery products is now a mandatory requirement of the market, both internationally and domestically.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Seafood sector pleads for breathing space as red tape strangles exports

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Scotland’s seafood sector today repeated an urgent call for a six-month “grace period” from red tape which is causing huge problems for exports to Europe.

Marketing group Seafood Scotland said the impacts of adapting to a complex new bureaucracy at the end of the Brexit transition period have been widespread. Issues from computer failures to lack of clarity on paperwork have rendered some Scottish companies’ efforts to export seafood all but impossible.

The Scottish salmon sector appears to be faring better than the caught fish and shellfish sectors, partly because it primarily comprises large companies with enough resources to tackle complicated paperwork.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: UK government blamed for seafood border disruptions

Thursday, January 14, 2021

The inability of the U.K. government to establish a trade agreement with the E.U. well before the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December, 2020, and a failure to include a bedding-in period that would have allowed exporters to adjust to the new demands, are the main reasons why seafood businesses are encountering disruptions at the border, according to Scottish Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing.

On 24 December, negotiators from the E.U. and the U.K. reached an agreement on a new partnership, which set out the rules that have applied between the two parties since 1 January, 2021.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Norway to reduce EU Cod Quota for Svalbard by 10,631 tonnes in 2021

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Norway has reduced the cod quota for the European Union in the Svalbard by 10,631 tonnes in 2021 which could cost the EU fishing industry by €800 million over the next 20 years.

News of the drastic cut has come to light in a communiqué between Europeche, the European North Atlantic Fisheries Association (ENAFA) and the European Association of Fish Producers Organisations (EAPO) to the EU Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen.

The Svalbard Zone is a protected area of 200 nautucal miles around the coastline of Svalbard. In December it was reported by Norwegian newspaper Nationen that Norway was going to give the EU a quota of 34,864 tonnes in the Zone along with 7,500 tonnes of other fisheries.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Regulatory breakthrough for Europe's insect producers

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Mealworms, which are increasingly being farmed as aquafeed ingredients, have been deemed safe for human consumption this week by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

The decision still has to be confirmed by the European Commission's Health Directorate General, which will give the final authorisation for market approval in the European Union.

According to mealworm producer Ÿnsect, it is the first insect species to receive a positive safety evaluation for human consumption in the world, offering hope for the growth of the entire insect farming industry. It is also, they say, a recognition that mealworm ingredients are premium products, as they have been deemed to be “food grade” before other insects which are still only used in animal feed.

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

France’s Minister of the Sea Annick Girardin was quick to announce measures to support French fishermen following the Brexit deal, while laying out some of the implications for the French fishing fleet as a level of activity is maintained in UK waters in the terms of the agreement.

Between now and 1st June 2026 to reach a 25% reduction in its fishing allocations in UK waters, but until then the French fleet maintains its access to the UK EEZ as well as the 6-12 mile zone for non-quota species, including bass, squid and scallop.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Chilean export volumes up but earnings down in 2020

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Chile exported 7% more salmon and trout in 2020 than the year before but overall export revenue fell by 14% as prices in key markets plummeted because of the impacts of Covid-19.

According to figures from the country’s Customs Service, Chile – the world’s second-largest producer of farmed salmon – exported 779,000 tonnes of salmon and trout worth US $4.39 billion, whereas in 2019 salmonid producers exported 725,000 tonnes of fish worth $5.13bn.

In the most recent edition of Salmon Industry Commercial Outlook - produced by statistics provider DataSalmon and Fish Farming Expert’s Chilean sister publication, Salmonexpert – DataSalmon product manager Fernanda Clément says the large 2020 harvest is mainly explained by high average weights.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Shortage of containers makes salmon freight more expensive

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Scarcity of containers and rapidly increasing freight rates presents challenges to logistics.

Exports of frozen salmon skyrocketed after flight cargo was decimated during the coronavirus period. Chile in particular has large frozen stocks of salmon, and increasing volumes of fish must be shipped in containers to the markets in the US, Europe and Asia.

The pandemic has increased online shopping, ranging from books to toys and medical devices. Most of it is produced in factories in Asia. Asian countries produce much more than they import. Empty containers are being left in the receiving countries and the result is a precarious shortage of containers in Asia, reports the news site Dagens Næringsliv.
