Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: The gold standard of plant-based ‘seafood’

ITALY
Tuesday, October 13, 2020

A new certification programme has been created for “seafood” created entirely from plants.

The certification is the result of cooperation between the World Sustainability Organisation (WSO) and the Good Food Institute (GFI) and will be part of the WSO’s Friend of the Sea programme under a new “Golden Standard”.

It allows plant-seafood companies to certify products according to sustainable criteria of the WSO’s Friend of the Earth agricultural standards. Plant-based meat products will receive a comparable standard from Fried of the Earth.

Other Media | FiskerForum: KFO: UK can't have its cake and eat it

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, October 13, 2020

The UK cannot expect to retain the privileges of membership while blocking its erstwhile European colleagues from its waters, and doubling its catch, according to Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation (KFO) CEO Seán O’Donoghue, who said it would be rank hypocrisy for the UK to expect to slam the door and keep the gains it enjoyed while part of the EU.

He commented that the complexity of moulding Britain’s future relationship with the EU is nowhere more evident than in fisheries, and is adamant that the UK should no longer benefit from the additional fishing opportunities it was granted after joining the EEC in 1973, particularly when the total allowable catches and quotas were decided in the early eighties.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Short Herring season comes to an end.

ICELAND
Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Brim’s pelagic vessels have finished this season’s fishing for Atlanto-Scandian herring.

The Venus and Víkingur are both now in Reykjavík, ready for their next assignment which could be Icelandic summer-spawning herring or blue whiting.

Bergur Einarsson, skipper of Venus, said that the Atlanto-Scandian herring season had been short and sharp. ‘Fishing went very well and there was a lot of herring there,” he said. “Fishing grounds were no more than 60 to 80 nautical miles from Vopnafjörður. The weather was fine and the herring in top condition, and we can say that production ashore dictated how quickly we fished.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Companies and scientists develop mussel-proof offshore wind power

SPAIN
Monday, October 12, 2020

These bivalves and other organisms like false barnacles and algae endanger the cables that carry electricity to the ground.

Neither activists nor fishermen, the great threat that looms over the future of wind energy is a small bivalve that delights the Galicians: the mussel. This mollusk that colonizes the rafts of the Rías Baixas is the worst enemy to be faced. facing the wind industry. The sector aims to cover half of Europe's electricity needs in the medium term. Of course, to achieve this they will have to find a formula to prevent the cable runs of the platforms that support the wind turbines from becoming mussel-growing areas.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: The European Commission and the United Kingdom exhaust this week the last possibilities according to Brexit

EUROPEAN UNION
Monday, October 12, 2020

The European Commission meets this Thursday and Friday with Brexit as one of the central topics of the conversation and with fishing as the central axis of negotiations that still have not reached port.

The negotiations focus the meeting of the European Council this Thursday, a few weeks before the distribution of fishing quotas. The European Union and the United Kingdom are now facing the final stretch of the negotiations for an agreement to exit the British.

Time is running out and the sector faces in the short term the period in which the member states must focus their efforts on negotiating the TACs and quotas for next 2021, so the Vigo fishing is already appealing to establish a new transitional period as an option more viable in 2021 without any agreement.

“We take our commitments to responsibly sourced fish very seriously and have not stocked yellowfin tuna on our shelves for over seven years. We are concerned that Indian Ocean stocks are not being managed effectively and protocols put in place by the IOTC to improve levels are not being enforced,” Co-op’s head of food policy, Cathryn Higgs, said.
