The implementation of the Russian government’s ambitious plan to upgrade its national fishery fleet through an investment-quota incentive program – which ties quota allocations to investments in new ships at Russian shipyards – is likely going to be delayed, as companies in the country aren’t capable of constructing the vessels in timeframe outlined in the program's bylaws.
The incentive program was launched by the government in 2016, and allocates additional quotas for some species to certain companies, if those companies have a ship of certain specifications built at a Russian shipyard within six years. The additional quota is given to the company for 15 years, but only upon the commissioning of the vessel.

The solution was for a to team to drive over 1300 kilometres to have the cages put together and then picked up by a Russian tugboat.
“COVID-19 brought with it a great deal of uncertainty about our activities, both on the customer side and the supplier side. All the measures that were implemented, either by the government or the municipalities, changed our surroundings in such a way that we had to create some scenarios of situations that could potentially arise,” said Petter Jørgensen to SalmonBusiness.

Higher than normal landings volumes of whole prawns and prawn tails due to good fishing throughout 2019 had already begun to have negative effects on market prices during the first quarter of 2020, before the effects of the lockdowns in domestic and export markets fully took hold.
Throughout April and into May, most nephrops vessels have been tied up and most factories have remained closed.

The introduction of grouper aquaculture in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could be “economically sound, environmentally beneficial, and socially enhancing”.
So concludes a newly published study into the potential impacts of culturing orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides). One of the most popular fish species in the UAE, the paper notes, it “has been pushed to the brink of extinction” by overexploitation of wild stocks, making the case for developing an aquaculture sector for the species all the more relevant.
