Other Media | Fish Farmer: Farmers challenge Norway’s ‘traffic light’ scheme

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

A major civil court case has opened to test the legality of Norway’s controversial fish farming traffic light scheme.

Expected to last up to two weeks, the hearing was triggered by 25 salmon and trout companies, mostly based in the south west of the country, who claim not only that they are being robbed of their livelihood, but that the country is losing out on its second most valuable export.

The scheme, they also argue, will also impact on many coastal communities who depend on aquaculture for jobs and social amenities.

Tuesday, February 09, 2021

Russia’s antitrust regulator, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), has opened a case against the Pollock Catchers Association (PCA) and several of its members over allegedly anticompetitive conduct.

The plaintiff in the case is the Russian Fishery Company (RFC), which has been in conflict with PCA since late last year, when it was ousted from the association.

According to FAS case documents, the PCA possibly violated a clause in section 11 of Russia’s federal law regulating competition, Vedomosti reported. The clause prohibits businesses or business associations from blocking companies' market access.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Dutch postcode lottery commits to MSC Funding

Tuesday, February 09, 2021

The Dutch Postcode Lottery has pledged an annual sum of €500,000 to support the Marine Stewardship Council for a further three years.

With the FAO reporting a further increase in overfished stocks, the drive to move to more sustainable fishing globally is critical. Approximately 60% of wild marine seafood is caught in the global south providing food, income and livelihoods for millions.

“Fishing is an essential source of income and food for hundreds of millions living in communities across the lower income countries, but there is an urgent need to accelerate the spread of sustainable fishing practices if these precious natural resources are to be protected for future generations,” said MSC chief executive, Rupert Howes.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Indignation among tuna boats over the importation of 35,000 free tons from China

Tuesday, February 09, 2021

The Spanish tuna vessels do not give credit to the facilities of the EU to China. The EU continues to give more options to Chinese tuna loins by giving 35,000 tonnes duty free to send to Europe.

Despite all the work to maintain the social sustainability of the species and the effort made to differentiate itself from other fleets under suspicion, the EU manages to give more permits to Asian tuna loins, caught by boats indicated for illegal fishing and, what is worse , for labor exploitation and for violating human rights.

Other Media | MundoAcuicola: Sernapesca triumphs in Courts in defense of fisheries and aquaculture sustainability

Monday, February 08, 2021

Sernapesca achieved important triumphs in Courts in defense of the country's fisheries and aquaculture sustainability.

The National Service of Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Biobío region, began at the end of last year, a sanctioning process against a union of artisanal shipowners in the region, for catching sardines and anchovies, despite having been notified in a timely manner of not counting with balance of fishing quota available. The illegal extraction carried out in the second capture period of last year, corresponded to a surplus of 1,406 tons of common sardine, and 530 tons of anchovy.

The union filed an appeal for protection against Sernapesca in the Concepción Court of Appeals, alleging illegal and arbitrary action by the supervisory body.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Netherlands Fleet Opposes UK's New MPA Plan

Monday, February 08, 2021

The two main representative organizations of the Dutch fishing fleet have sent separate communications in which they show their rejection of the United Kingdom's plan to veto certain fishing gears, including trawling, in four Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). Both the Netherlands Fishermen's Association (Nederlandse Visserbond) and VisNed point out that this decision affects the country's vessels. The project is currently in the process of consultation and the British employers' association, NFFO, has already been against it.

The Dutch Fishermen's Association begins its statement with irony, stating that the British fishing fleet is seeing the birth of "a green spirit" in the Government of Boris Johnson after "a disappointing Brexit".
