Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Federation Delegation Makes the Case to Minister on Fuel Costs

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, May 20, 2022

The four federations representing England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland recently met with Fisheries Minister, Victoria Prentis MP to underline the crisis engulfing the fishing industry caused by the high cost of fuel.

The federations emphasised that fuel costs are currently at a level that jeopardises the viability of parts of the fleet. This has been offset - for the time being – to some degree by high fish prices, but the industry is caught in an inherently unstable and fragile balance.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: China paid €7 more per kilo for salmon than Poland

POLAND
Friday, May 20, 2022

Historically large price gap.

Norway’s largest salmon buyer, Poland, is not known for paying too much for the fish. The large Polish processing plants run high volumes and have a tough cost focus. They also have extensive use of long-term fixed-price contracts.

The latter is a key reason why Poland paid €7.8 per kilo (delivered the Norwegian border) for salmon last week – well below the average price of €9.5, according to export statistics from the Norwegian Seafood Council.

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, May 20, 2022

The U.K. government’s intention to introduce new legislation that makes swift changes to the post-Brexit rules surrounding the checking of goods at the Irish border has drawn fire from Scotland’s seafood industry, particularly the farmed salmon sector.

U.K. Foreign Secretary Liz Truss told the House of Commons on 17 May that the Northern Ireland Protocol, introduced in 2021, had caused unforeseen problems, including “unnecessary bureaucracy” for goods moving between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

SPAIN
Thursday, May 19, 2022

The Shtandart, a replica of the 18th-century frigate of Russian Tsar Peter I the Great, has been anchored since this afternoon in the Baiona marina. Its presence under the Russian flag has not gone unnoticed in the town due to misgivings about the invasion of Ukraine and the restrictions that have been imposed, also in maritime traffic, but it is not the first time that this 34.5-meter sailboat of length by 6.9 meters of breadth anchors in the estuary. She is a ship that acts as a school ship, in which a crew made up of students and sailors of different nationalities navigates.

SPAIN
Thursday, May 19, 2022

The Government's star measure in fisheries matters, in development since 2020, has materialized. The Council of Ministers has approved the draft Law on Sustainable Fishing and Fisheries Research that will update the regulation in force since 2001 with the aim of strengthening the triple, economic, social and environmental sustainability of fishing in Spain. The norm establishes new criteria for the distribution of quotas in order to optimize their use; commitment to strengthening scientific knowledge through the application of an ecosystem approach; and establish new measures of a social nature aimed at groups such as rederas and shellfish gatherers, as some of the key measures.
