The SFPA would like to remind all exporters to the USA that Live Bivalve Molluscs* and Frozen Unprocessed Bivalve Molluscs are not currently approved for export from Ireland to the USA. If these products are exported to the USA, they will be rejected at the Border Control Point and will either need to be destroyed at the Border Control Point or reimported into Ireland at significant cost to the exporter.

The only Bivalve Molluscs which can be exported to the USA are cooked or processed Bivalve Molluscs. Exports to the USA do not require an export health certificate however exporters must be registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and pre-notify export consignments using the FDA online system.

IN BRIEF - Alert of the risk to the health and safety of a fishing boat in Vigo

Monday, May 08, 2023

It is a trawler that docked at the Chapela docks at the end of April

The International Federation of Transport Workers (ITF) warns that the fishing boat "Santa Isabel" docked in Vigo puts the health and safety of its crew at risk. Built in 1972 and sailing under the Belize flag, it is a trawler that docked at the Chapela docks at the end of April.

Before the arrival of the vessel at the port of Vigo, the federation received a request for advice and help through the ITF FishSupport service. The crew members alleged that they had not received their salaries and that they feared they would be repatriated upon arrival at port without receiving their money. When the ITF acknowledged receipt of the claim and contacted the workers, they said they did not know the port they were going to and were afraid of reprisals for asking for help.

In the search for information about the vessel and its origin, ITF discovers that it is a vessel accused of illegal fishing by NGOs and that it presumably comes from Montevideo. The ITF sends an inspector on board, in this case the area inspector, Luz Baz, to verify the scope of the claim and the conditions on board. During her visit, frustrated by an alleged Spanish representative of the company, she was unable to get close to the crew, but she was able to verify the general state of the ship and the absolutely substandard habitability conditions. Therefore, the ITF urges the immediate detailed inspection of the vessel.

IN BRIEF - Labor Shortage Threatens Kuwaiti Fishing Industry; Urgent Action Is Needed

Monday, May 08, 2023

Kuwaiti Federation of Fishermen head Dhaher Al-Soyyan urged officials to act quickly to prevent the fishing sector from collapsing due to a severe labor shortage.

Since fishing seasons are approaching, Al-Soyyan emphasized that entry visas should be opened for fishermen. Many boats lack workers due to a lack of workers. Failure to address the labor shortage will result in a shortage of local marine products and a fish price rise. Since fishing labor isn't readily available on the local market, Al-Soyyan urged officials to ease the suffering of license holders by allowing replacement workers to be recruited.

IN BRIEF - Southeast Alaska king salmon fishery is in limbo after orca lawsuit rulings and appeals

Monday, May 08, 2023

A federal judge in Washington state issued a ruling this week that threatens to shut down trolling for king salmon in Southeast Alaska this summer.

The ruling comes in a lawsuit filed three years ago by a Washington-based conservation group called Wild Fish Conservancy that aims to protect a small population of orcas.

The lawsuit centers ons whether Alaska fishermen should be allowed to harvest king salmon, which are considered essential prey for the Southern Resident killer whales.

KCAW’s Robert Woolsey has been following the lawsuit from Sitka, in the heart of the Southeast salmon troll fishing region, and says whether the king fishery will be closed this summer remains uncertain.
