World fisheries and aquaculture production in 2022 is expected to increase by 1.5%, to 184.6 million tonnes. It is the main data extracted from the "Food Outlook" report that FAO has just launched and in which it is explained that growth in the aquaculture sector recovered in relation to last year, by 2.9 percent, to the 92.2 million tons. However, this figure must be taken with caution, clarifies FAO, since the costs of inputs maintain a long-term growth path which, together with other factors, such as the cost of energy, are contributing to a slowdown in growth of 0 .2% year-on-year.
The fishing association Cepesca asks the Government to extend the aid to deal with the consequences of the war in Ukraine, “even more so -says Javier Garat, general secretary of the association-, if we take into account that the rise in the price of fuel has practically already eaten the bonus of 20 cents per liter and the fishing sector is once again approaching a situation that is difficult to sustain”. This affirmation has also been transmitted by Coincopesca.

Sales at Morrisons supermarkets slumped 9.5 per cent in the 12 weeks to May 15
The private equity owners of Morrisons are sounding out buyers for a portfolio of its warehouses, fisheries and food manufacturing plants that is expected to fetch more than £600 million.
Clayton Dubilier & Rice (CD&R) is marketing the assets in a proposed sale-and-leaseback transaction designed to drive up returns from its £7 billion leveraged buyout of Morrisons.
While suitors have not yet been told the composition of the portfolio, it is expected to include about two dozen assets. Morrisons owns nine distribution centres and 20 food manufacturing sites across the Midlands, the north and in Scotland. Sources said the assets were being marketed by BNP Paribas and Knight Frank.
