IN BRIEF - BFAR reopens Visayan Sea for commercial fishing

PHILIPPINES
Wednesday, February 19, 2020

CEBU — The Visayan Sea is now open for commercial fishing after the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources lifted on Saturday, February 15, the temporary fishing ban it imposed November last year for the spawning season of sardines, mackerels, and herrings.

BFAR-7 closed a portion of the Visayan Sea to commercial fishing on November 15 to allow the mackerels, sardines, and herrings to flourish during the spawning season.

Sardines and herrings are known in the Visayas as tamban or malalangsi and tuloy, respectively, while mackerel is locally known as tamarong or anduhaw.

Among the coastal areas that bounds the Visayan Sea are Bogo City and the towns of San Remigio, Daanbantayan, Medellin, Santa Fe, Bantayan, and Madridejos.

The Visayan Sea, which is one of the country's largest fishing grounds, is surrounded by the islands of Cebu and Negros to the south; Masbate to the north; Panay to the west; and Leyte to the east. (FREEMAN)


IN BRIEF - Vietnam looks to South Korea, Thailand for guidance on EU inspection process

VIET NAM
Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Vietnam’s southern province of Kien Giang is planning to dispatch a delegation to South Korea and Thailand to learn from the experiences of the two countries in abiding by the European Union’s requirements for eliminating illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

The local Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is seeking permission from the province’s leaders to carry out the trip, in advance of the upcoming inspection by the European Commission scheduled for June, Nong nghiep Viet Nam reported last week.

The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries had sent inspectors to Vietnam in November 2019 to review the yellow card imposed in October 2017. Kien Giang was chosen as a key province for the inspectors to evaluate the implementation of recommendations made by the E.C.

The E.C. lifted the yellow card on South Korea in 2015 and on Thailand in 2019 in recognition of their progress in tackling IUU fishing.

PRESS RELEASE: Global Squid Market will be more than US$ 11.6 Billion by the end of year 2025

WORLDWIDE
Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Worldwide demand for squid has increased due to its high nutritional content. As a food source, squid is a vital source of protein, high vitamin, and mineral content and healthy fats. The unique biology of Squid Market requires a different management approach than other fisheries. Squid Market exhibit very fast growth and short life spans. Squid play an essential role as a mid-tropic level species, in which they transfer energy to the food chain.

Healthy eating trends and growing health awareness increases the demand for fish and seafood. The potential impacts of climate change inshore squid and rising squid prices are the main hurdles to this market. According to Renub Research, Global Squid Market will be more than US$ 11.6 Billion by the end of year 2025.

The world market size of squid mainly focuses on key regions like the United States, European Union, China, Japan, Korea, India, and Southeast Asia. The boom in squid will have interesting consequences both for their ecosystem and for human society. Spain was the fourth largest importer of squid in the world. Spain not only has the largest Squid processing industry in Europe but also has a high per capita consumption and a high per capita expenditure on Squid products.

Asian countries continued to demand more squid and could divert supplies globally. China and Japan are the leading importers in the Asian region, and they are looking for other squid suppliers. Imports of Squid by the world's nations have also increased dramatically, and total imports of squid is increasing year on year with Indonesia, Spain, and the United States of America are the leading suppliers. Consequently, squid supplies may be very tight in the coming years due to high prices.

Frozen squid is popular in southern European markets such as Spain and Italy. Imports are dominated by prepaid squid and almost every market in South East Asia has increased its imports in recent years. Major shares of domestic landings in Japan, China, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan are also marketed locally as fresh, mainly squid products.

Renub Research report titled “Global Squid Market By Import (Spain, Japan, Italy, China, Republic of Korea, Others), Export (China, India, Spain, Peru, Thailand, Other Countries) Production, Consumption, Products (Fresh, Frozen & Prepared), Value Chain Analysis & Forecast” provides a complete analysis of global Squid market.
