165,000 euros were paid for one of 208 kilos, very little compared to the 1.5 million paid a year ago for another of 276 kilos
Not an auction as mediatic as the first of the year in Tokyo (Japan) has been spared the impact of the pandemic. This Tuesday, around 165,000 euros have been paid at the Toyosu fish market for a 208 kg bluefin tuna, at 790 per kilo, reports the Efe agency. Although for common humans it is still an exorbitant price, in that market it is very little compared to the 1.5 million euros paid a year ago for a 276 kilos copy, at 5,434 euros per kilo.

Hull-based fishing company UK Fisheries fears that a lack of fisheries deals with Norway, Greenland, Faroes will scupper the fleet.
‘The EU deal is done, but for English distant waters fishing the future is anything but certain. Kirkella is tied up in Hull. Right now, we’re not supporting jobs upstream or downstream. We’re not generating wealth in the form of inward investment and UK taxes,’ a representative of the company said, and asked if the UK government will do the deals needed to keep our crews at work in 2021.

The British organization NFFO has published a statement in which it recognizes that after the association agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU “our immediate task was to stop the Government's attempts to present the result of the fishing as a famous victory” since it considers that "the UK fishing industry has again been sacrificed for other national objectives." Beyond considering fishing as the part sacrificed to achieve a commercial agreement, NFFO considers that what has angered the fishing industry has been, precisely, "the attempt to present the meager profits as a leap forward, as a state independent coastal ”.

The Xunta has approved 94 activity management programs that will incorporate 137 shellfishmen
