Other Media | Fish Farmer: Canadian seafood exporters welcome UK trade deal

CANADA
Wednesday, November 25, 2020

Seafood leaders in Canada have this week welcomed the signing of a temporary free trade deal with the UK.

The agreement means there will be no tariffs on farmed or wild caught fish exported to Britain next year.

Tariffs on Canadian seafood to the European Union were abolished earlier this year under the Canada-Europe Trade Agreement (CETA).

Paul Lansbergen, president of the Fisheries Council of Canada, said: “It cements the access that we’ve currently enjoyed under CETA. The UK is our fifth largest single country export destination, so it is important for our sector and we’re pleased that this transitional deal was reached.”

Media Statement: Fisheries Act fails to deliver UK environmental leadership

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

UK Environment Lawyer Sarah Denman:

"The UK Government championed the Fisheries Act as the key piece of Brexit legislation to ensure world-leading sustainable fisheries management. But it fails to deliver on this promise.

“Without a legal requirement for fishing at sustainable levels in line with scientific advice, there is no way to ensure the health of our oceans and prevent overfishing. And by failing to make sustainability the key objective of the Act, the Government missed the opportunity to support both marine life and the coastal communities that depend on it.

“It’s now critical that future fisheries policy prioritises sustainability and marine protection if the UK has any hope of delivering on its ‘world leading’ environmental promises.”

Other Media | EuropaAzul: A report by Apromar shows the difference between Spanish aquaculture and the rest

SPAIN
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Between two great masses of land and water, Spain is the gateway to Europe and the bridge to Africa. Its geographical location and its peninsular layout make Spain a privileged environment. A country rich in flora and fauna, with a special emphasis on life in the water. And all this, thanks to its more than 8,000 km of coastline and its 9 large rivers. Not to mention the lakes, reservoirs and tributary rivers. All together constitute the aquaculture fish culture water of Spain.

The Spanish aquaculture sector is already a benchmark on a European and global level. Despite the strong competition suffered by fish from other countries such as Turkey, the cultivation of aquatic species in Spain does not stop growing.

Furthermore, the United Kingdom and Greece are the only countries that exceed the Spanish aquaculture data in production volume, according to the latest APROMAR report.
