IN BRIEF - TRIBUNE: 'French fishing in danger'

FRANCE
Monday, May 27, 2024

Members of the Merchant Marine, Fishing and Pleasure, and Navigation and Oceanology sections of the Marine Academy - Gérard d'Aboville, Francis Baudu, Jean-François Bernicot, Serge Beslier, Alain Biseau, Marc Chevallier, Bernard Datcharry, Patrick Geistdorfer, Olivier de Kersauson, Alain Laurec, Bernard Mazuel, Frédéric Moncany, Marc Pajot and Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée - wanted to express their concern about the crisis in the sector.

The current crises, covid, and Ukraine, have shown the importance of ensuring the security of the nation's supplies and our food sovereignty. The role of maritime transport is obvious but that of maritime fisheries is less so.

Media campaigns aimed at demonizing so-called “industrial” fishing in general and trawling in particular place the debate on a much more emotional than rational terrain.

It seems important to us to remember that a large part (60%) of French fishing landings comes from trawling, an activity practiced almost exclusively by vessels over 12 meters long which some describe as " industrial" . That the trade balance in seafood products is very largely in deficit (4 billion euros), and that aiming to eliminate large trawler boats would only aggravate this deficit (unless consumption decreases drastically, which does not seem to neither possible nor desirable).[Continues...]

CANADA
Monday, May 27, 2024

The overall total economic benefit of the salmon farming industry to First Nation communities is estimated to be $120 million.

Failure to renew the current salmon farming licenses, Robinson warned, could result in significant economic losses for the Kitasoo Xai’xais Nation, including approximately $2.82 million in economic output, $2.8 million in employment income, and 60 jobs.
