IN BRIEF - World Shipping Council Responds to Ocean Shipping Antitrust Enforcement Act: Why?

Friday, March 31, 2023

The World Shipping Council (WSC) has voiced its opposition to the bipartisan Ocean Shipping Antitrust Enforcement Act, introduced this week by U.S. Representatives Jim Costa (CA-21), Dusty Johnson (SD-AL), John Garamendi (CA-08), Josh Harder (CA-09) and Jimmy Panetta (CA-19).

The proposed legislation aims to repeal the exemption for foreign ocean carriers from federal antitrust laws and address unfair practices affecting American businesses and consumers.

According to a U.S. Department of Transportation report, the top 10 foreign-based ocean carriers, operating foreign-flagged vessels, control over 80% of the shipping market. The new act would apply antitrust laws to these carriers, allowing the U.S. to address unfair trade practices, such as unjustified rate increases, excessive fees, and unexplained schedule changes.

IN BRIEF - Miyagi Coho Salmon production expected to reach 14,500 tons

Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Landing of "Miyagi Coho Salmon Special"  to end at the end of June

The cumulative production volume of Miyagi-farmed Coho Salmon this season (March to July 2012) is expected to be 14,500 tons, down 20% from the previous season. 

This is due to a decrease in the amount of young fish brought to the sea surface fish ponds. Furthermore, the seawater temperature at the sea surface fish farms from the beginning of the year to early spring was 5 to 6 degrees higher than usual, which resulted in extremely poor growth and an average size that is one size smaller than usual. 

The growth rate, which has been good in recent years at 12 to 13 times, is also likely to be lower than average.

Among the farmed coho salmon produced in Miyagi Prefecture, only those that are processed to preserve freshness when landed, such as by "ikejime" (killing the fish alive) or "nerve-killing", are certified as the highest quality brand, "Miyagi Salmon."[....]
