IN BRIEF - Breaking the cycle of the illegally sold tuna market

SOUTH AFRICA
Wednesday, December 04, 2019

Tuna season, which falls between October and mid-January, and picks up again between April and May, sees the local market being bombarded with tuna at a giveaway price. Despite the illegal trade of recreationally caught fish, recreational catches will sell between R25/kg to R40/kg per fish, presenting itself as a favourable option to local restaurateurs, some of whom become reluctant to pay between R75/kg to R95/kg for quality, legally caught tuna.

“Unfortunately some restaurants choose the illegal route rather than supporting those that go above and beyond to operate within the law and produce a high end product for the consumer,” explains Kurt Hill, operations director at Cape Fish located in Paarden Eiland.

Identified as a key contributor to the problem are the local, annual tuna competitions, where recreational anglers and vessel owners enjoy large catches of tuna – the surplus which is sold into the market at a reduced price to make a profit, undercutting commercial fisheries.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Canary Islands allocate 8.7 million euros to offset the costs of fishing and aquaculture operators

SPAIN
Friday, August 07, 2020

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Government of the Canary Islands has announced the subsidies for the 2019 campaign aimed at compensating the additional costs borne by the operators of certain Canary Islands fishing and aquaculture products included in the Operational Program for Spain of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund 2014-2020.

The aid, valued at 8.7 million euros, is aimed at operators in the fishing, breeding, processing and marketing of certain fishery and aquaculture products in the Archipelago. And they are destined to subsidize the commercialization by air and sea, fresh and frozen, outside the Archipelago, of artisanal fishing products; the production and marketing of industrial fishing in the Canary Islands; the transformation of fishery or aquaculture products from the islands.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Ecologists regret the presence of Irish ships on the Basque coast

SPAIN
Friday, August 07, 2020

The ecological group Eguzki regrets once again the presence of pelagic trawlers near the coast. "We have come to count up to seven Irish ships, although the total number of ships is likely to be higher." A sample of its activity could be seen on Sunday afternoon in the port of Ondarroa: a beautiful bloody swordfish with its dorsal fin broken as a result of pelagic nets. "Those networks that swallow everything, be it a commercial, non-commercial or protected species," denounce the ecologists.

Fishing with pelagic nets is prohibited both in Spain and in the waters of the Basque Country by their respective administrations, mainly because they catch and drag everything that gets in their way and generates a lot of discard.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Japanese government preparing to launch 'Go To Eat' campaign

JAPAN
Thursday, August 06, 2020

From 21 July and running until 8 August, Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF) has been recruiting organizations and restaurants to participate in the "Go To Eat" campaign. The campaign aims to stimulate demand in the food and beverage industry for a limited time by subsidizing part of the cost of dining out.

Restaurants have been hit hard as customers have refrained from eating out as a way of limiting the spread of COVID-19. After dropping to as low as 10 percent of the previous year’s revenue, many eating establishments have been able to rebound to about 50 percent. However, spacing tables more widely to meet social distancing guidelines has put limits on capacity.

Other Media | The Fish Site: How reliable are aquaculture sustainability certification schemes?

WORLDWIDE
Thursday, August 06, 2020

Researchers are raising concerns over the scope of current sustainability certification schemes in the aquaculture sector – saying that they could be overly focused on environmental and governance indicators.

A recent study published in the journal Global Environmental Change has reviewed the metrics and methodology of eight global sustainability certification schemes for aquaculture: ASC, GLOBAL GAP, Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), BRC Global Standards, International Featured Standards (IFS), Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation (SSPO), Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), and Friend of the Sea (FOS).

Other Media | BBC News: The islands that want tourists as well as fish

FAROE ISLANDS
Thursday, August 06, 2020

Hundreds of miles from its nearest neighbour, the remote Faroe Islands are surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Fishing has always been a way of life, and fish accounts for 90% of all exported goods. But coronavirus is hitting efforts to increase tourism.

The drive to the village of Glyvrar is nothing less than dramatic.

The road from the airport winds past mountains and fjords, and passes through tunnels cut into hillsides and burrowed under the sea.

Glyvrar is home to the Faroe Islands' largest firm, Bakkafrost - which farms salmon.
