Other media | MundoAcuicola: Fishing industry and NGOs react to Fisheries Report 2020

Thursday, April 08, 2021

Although several resources show positive signs, different species of hake that are caught both in the central and southern areas remain depleted or overexploited.

The law provides that Subpesca report annually on the evolution of 27 resources, without prejudice to the fact that the report provides information on a total of 44 fisheries. In fact, the report operates as a barometer that reflects the condition of fish, mollusks, algae and crustaceans on which the fishing sector operates.

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Shrimp Insights: India, Indonesia, and Vietnam all poised for continued growth

Thursday, April 08, 2021

Despite setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing competition from Ecuador, Asia’s top shrimp exporting nations should expect continued growth, according to a top shrimp market analyst.

Willem van der Pijl, who founded the Seafood Trade Intelligence Portal (STIP) in 2013, formed Shrimp Insights, a consultancy aimed at the shrimp sector, in June 2020. He recently published a series of blogs on his site looking deeper into the shrimp industry in India, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

India, the world’s top shrimp exporter, had a difficult year in 2020, with production and export performance severely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The South Asia nation is estimated to have produced between 650,000 and 700,000 metric tons (MT) of shrimp last year, down from 780,000 to 800,000 MT in 2019.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Saudis unveil plans for the largest fish hatchery in the Middle East

Wednesday, April 07, 2021

Plans to construct a hatchery capable of producing 70 million fingerlings a year in the Saudi Arabian model city of NEOM are gathering pace, following the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the NEOM company and Tabuk Fish Company.

The MOU was signed in the presence of the country’s Minister of Environment, Water and Agriculture, Abdulrahman Al-Fadhli, and relates to the construction of a hatchery with the capacity to produce 70 million fingerlings, which would make it the largest in the Middle East and North Africa region, according to the Saudi Gazette.

The hatchery will focus on improving the production of finfish species endemic to the Red Sea and aims to contribute to achieving the Kingdom's goal of producing 600,000 tonnes of seafood a year by 2030.

‘I’m particularly pleased that at the end of March a series of changes to simplify the Export Health Certificates system came into effect.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Western Australia calls for local labelling

Wednesday, April 07, 2021

The WA (Western Australia) Fishing Industry Council (WAFIC) is calling for clear seafood labelling, including state of origin, in the food service sector.

All seafood sold in the retail sector must be labelled to identify its country of origin and country of origin labelling is mandatory in packaged retail seafood. However as soon as the food is cooked and sold those laws disappear, making it difficult for consumers to distinguish between sustainable Australian seafood and non-sustainable seafood imported from other markets. WAFIC is keen to see improvements in labelling for cooked seafoods - including those served in restaurants.

Drama continues on Tuesday.

The Dutch cargo ship “Eemslift Hendrika” is sailing without a crew, in the sea northwest of Ålesund, Western Norway. The crew evacuated the ship on Monday night.
