Monday, October 12, 2020

SalMar and Lerøy Seafoods, two of Norway’s largest salmon farming companies, are reporting lower harvests for the third quarter of this year.

In a trading update Lerøy said it slaughtered 44,200 tonnes of salmon and trout in three months between July and September, compared with 46,000 tonnes in the same period last year, the company announced in an Oslo stock exchange announcement.

However, its volume for the year as a whole is higher than last year, and so far this year the company has harvested 122.500, compared to 115.400tonnes in the same period in 2019.

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

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.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: UK retailer refusing to sell yellowfin tuna until overfishing is addressed

Monday, October 12, 2020

United Kingdom retailer Co-op has pledged not to sell any own-brand or branded yellowfin tuna in its stores until stocks in the Indian Ocean are managed sustainably.

The announcement comes ahead of the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission’s (IOTC) annual meeting in November, which Co-op hopes will address the issue of overfishing.  

“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.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: RFC, ousted from Russia’s MSC client group, intends to get certified on its own

Friday, October 09, 2020

Radical proposals made by the Russian Fishery Company (RFC) on the development of the Russian seafood sector led to the loss of a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification by the company.

In September, RFC was expelled from the Pollock Catchers Association (PCA) – the MSC’s client group in Russia. Now the company plans to apply for the certification independently.

RFC, owned by Gleb Frank –a young entrepreneur who entered the seafood industry just a few years ago with big investment plans – shook up the segment in summer 2020 by rolling out a few proposals to reform the management of fisheries in Russia.
