Other Media | EuropaAzul: UK fishermen call it a 'mockery' to extend the CFP by one year

Thursday, December 17, 2020

Fishermen in the UK call the EU's demand to extend the Common Fisheries Policy for a year "gross ridiculous". Scottish fisheries chiefs have clashed with authorities after "hearing that the EU is trying to extend the Common Fisheries Policy by up to one year."

The EU is seeking a one-year extension of the current agreements under the Common Fisheries Policy if no agreement is reached, something that Boris Johnson will not accept. But Elspeth Macdonald, executive director of the Scottish Fishermen's Federation, said the requests were "ridiculous" and "totally unacceptable to the Scottish fishing industry."

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Losses mount among Chile's leading salmon-farming firms

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Three of Chile’s largest seafood farming operators have posted their third-quarter results for 2020.

During the third quarter, Chilean salmon farming company Nova Austral’s revenues increased 26 percent to USD 39.7 million (EUR 32.8 million) when compared to the same period in 2019, mainly due to higher volumes sold and partially offset by lower market prices, the company reported to the Oslo stock market, where it is traded publicly.

However, cost of goods sold outpaced the revenue increase, increasing by 32 percent year-over-year to USD 37.3 million (EUR 30.8 million), which the company attributed to higher volumes sold (3,000-plus tons versus Q3 2019).

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: SuperSmolt maker plays down significance of BioMar court ruling

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Another shot has been fired in the long-running conflict between fish health products supplier STIM and feed giant BioMar over the latter’s right to sell a specialist feed to aid salmon smoltification.

STIM chief executive Jim-Roger Nordly today played down the importance of a county court ruling allowing BioMar to sell its Intro Tuning feed, which STIM (formerly Europharma) claims is a copy of its patented SuperSmolt FeedOnly product.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Labour shortage fears for Norway’s seafood sector

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Employers in Norway’s fishing and seafood sector are worried about being able to get enough workers through the country’s long winter months.

Businesses are hoping that the 195,000 Norwegians currently on the unemployment register or looking for work can help to fill the gap, as well as reduce the risk of Covid infected people coming in from abroad.

Labour and Social affairs minister Henrik Asheim, Fisheries and Seafood Minister Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen and Hans Christian Holte, director of NAV which looks after employment issues, have just met with industry leaders in a bid to solve the problem.

Other Media | aqua.cl: FAO: Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries overcome overexploitation

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

While most stocks remain overfished, this is the first time in several decades that the GFCM has been able to report some positive trends.

After several decades of increasing man-made pressures on the ecosystems and fishery resources of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, the most recent data suggest that overexploitation of the essential fishery resources of the region appears to be finally being overcome.

This was stated in the report "The state of fishing in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea" (SoMFi 2020) published this Monday, December 14, where it is mentioned that although 75% of fish populations are still subject to overfishing, this percentage has decreased by more than 10% between 2014 and 2018.

The report was prepared by FAO officials from the Secretariat of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM)

Other Media | Fish Farmer: UNESCO highlights lack of funding for ocean research

Tuesday, December 15, 2020

Lack of funding is hampering the development and implementation of marine research and its valuable applications, according to a report published by United Nations agency UNESCO.

The Second Global Ocean Science Report, published by UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), finds that on average, states devote only 1.7% of their research budgets to sciences of the ocean (0.03% to 11.8%, depending on the country). This is much less than other fields of scientific research, which is “incomprehensible”, the report says, considering the fundamental role of the ocean in regulating the climate and its rich biodiversity.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: WTO talks on fishing subsidies deal to resume 18 January

Tuesday, December 15, 2020

Formal World Trade Organization negotiations on ending harmful subsidies to fisheries will recommence in the week beginning 18 January.

Talks hit another impasse earlier this month, with gaps in a text circulated at the WTO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, proving too great to overcome.

Consultations between the negotiating parties will continue between now and the recommencement of negotiations, according to Colombian Ambassador to the WTO Santiago Wills.

Tuesday, December 15, 2020

The non-profit organisation EAT has entered into a partnership with marketing group the Norwegian Seafood Council to promote increased consumption of seafood in a bid to contribute to a shift in global food systems to include more food from the ocean.
