Other Media | aqua.cl: They deliver the last report of the year on the Chinese squid fleet

Monday, January 04, 2021

A total of 99 Chinese flag vessels move off Chile, without fishing in national waters, towards the Atlantic

As it has been doing since September, the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca) continues to monitor the situation of the vessels of the Chinese fleet that caused concern over fishing operations carried out near the coasts of several South American countries, to the north of Chile.

The head of Fisheries Inspection of Sernapesca, Pablo Ortiz, delivered on December 31 the thirteenth report, noting that, according to the satellite surveillance report, 99 vessels are moving off the coast of our country, at navigation speed constant, which confirms that they are not carrying out fishing operations.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Portugal assumes the presidency of the EU with important challenges for fisheries

Monday, January 04, 2021

Portugal assumed the rotating presidency of the European Union (EU) on Friday, January 1, 2021, for the fourth time in its history.

The main objective it assumes is the adaptation of the Community fishing fleet and the implementation of the agreement reached with the United Kingdom by the EU. It should be remembered that the negotiation of the 2021 catches in Brussels, last December, resulted in an agreement highly criticized by the sector in recent years. The pact of the EU Fisheries Ministers lowered catches in Atlantic Iberian waters for species such as hake (-5%) or sole (-20%) and cut the days spent by Mediterranean vessels by 7.5% .

Other Media | FiskerForum: Trawler's nightmare 19-month refit

Monday, January 04, 2021

When Russian Far East fishing company Dobroflot sent its trawler Yuzhno-Morskoy to a Chinese shipyard for what was expected to be a four-month refit, nobody expected the crew to have to spend 19 months there.

Now Yuzhno-Morskoy is back in its home port, following a long battle to get the work completed and the trawler released from the Chinese shipyard.

‘It’s an example of integrity, professionalism, patience and perseverance of the entire crew,’ a spokesman for the company said, commenting that the trawler was steamed to the yard in China in the summer of 2019 for scheduled maintenance.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Strong year-end for AKVA group

Wednesday, December 30, 2020

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Contradictions block the way to a WTO deal on ending fishing subsidies

Wednesday, December 30, 2020

There are very different and contradictory ambitions motivating the key players in the current World Trade Organization negotiations on a deal that would end harmful fisheries subsidies.

Those differences will have to be squared before any deal emerges out of the talks, which have been held over more than 20 years, and which are set to resume on 18 January, 2021.

While all member states at the WTO say they’re committed to a deal on ending capacity-enhancing subsidies, China and Russia are simultaneously ramping up fleet enhancement initiatives that stand in contrast to the goals of the negotiations.

Other Media | FiskerForum: BREXIT deal falls short of promises

Wednesday, December 30, 2020

The deal between the EU and the UK on fisheries falls very far short of the commitments and promises that were made to the industry by those at the highest level of government, according to Scottish Fishermen’s Federation chief executive Elspeth Macdonald.

‘It does not restore sovereign UK control over fisheries, and does not permit us to determine who can catch what, where and when in our own waters. From 1st January 2021, the EU fleet has full access to the UK EEZ for what is essentially six years, as fisheries are managed on an annual basis,’ she said.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Restricted antibiotics and sulphites are rife in US shrimp imports

Wednesday, December 30, 2020

A case study from Louisiana suggests that most shrimp products that are imported into the US contain antibiotic residues and sulphites, violating the country’s labelling and regulatory standards.

A recent paper published in Aquaculture Reports suggests that shrimp imports to the US are falling short of consumer safety standards. Researchers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana went to multiple grocery stores in the region and purchased a variety of fresh and frozen shrimp products originating from Vietnam, Thailand, Ecuador, China, India, Indonesia and Bangladesh. They then screened the shrimp for sulphite exposure and veterinary antibiotics that have been banned in the US.

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Nichirei takes hit on seafood segment, still boosts profit

Tuesday, December 29, 2020

Tokyo, Japan-based Nichirei Corporation’s second-quarter results show that the while the company did well overall, the company’s seafood segment took a hit from COVID-19.

For the six months ending 30 September, 2020, Nichirei’s overall sales were off by 3 percent, while operating profit rose by 12 percent. However the firm's marine products segment saw a sales drop of 11 percent – the largest in the company – due to slow restaurant demand amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The segment suffered an operating loss of JPY 28 million (USD 270,377, EUR 221,339). In the same period last year, it eked out an operating profit of JPY 49 million (USD 472,891, EUR 387,404).
