The Atlantic shoreline of Clew Bay in County Mayo, Ireland, looks both pristine and wild in the giant photo billboards at the Xanadu Hotel in Guangzhou, one of China’s wealthiest cities. At a recent Irish seafood marketing event at the hotel hosted by Irish product-marketing agency Bord Bia, and broadcast on the Chinese Weibo social media platform, the images displayed alongside captions describing a “Green Isle” of pure waters that feed oysters, lobsters, and shrimp.

IN BRIEF - Russia refuses to hold annual fishery talks with Japan

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

NHK has learned that Russia has notified Japan that it cannot hold annual talks this year aimed at ensuring the safety of Japanese fishing vessels when they operate near the four islands.

Russia controls four islands, Japan claims its rights to them. The Japanese government claims that these islands were illegally occupied after World War II.

The Japanese Embassy in Moscow said it received a unilateral notification from the Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday.

Such annual negotiations are based on an agreement between the governments of the two countries, concluded in 1998. It protects fishery workers operating near these islands from being detained by the Russian authorities.

Official representatives of the Japanese embassy called Russia's step deplorable. They also said they would urge Moscow to start negotiations soon to allow fishing vessels to start fishing operations as quickly as possible this season.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Inshore fleet catches drop but their value rises

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

The fish marketed in the Basque brotherhoods has decreased by 4.7% in volume and the value of sales has increased by 16.2%, based on data from the Basque Government Fisheries Observatory. The drop registered in the volume of sales has been noted in the latest annual results of the Basque brotherhoods, which show download figures 4.7% lower than those of the previous year. However, the sales figure for 2022 has increased by 16% compared to 2021.

This fact is due to the fact that all the species, except hake, have strengthened their prices at the auction, as a consequence of the price inflation of the last year. Above all, it is important to highlight the price increases registered in the bonito del norte (17%), mackerel and starling (37.2%), anchovy (27.5%) and sardines (17.5%).
