Other Media | FiskerForum: Demonising A Whole Industry

Tuesday, March 02, 2021

French fishermen have hit back at NGOs, providing figures to counter claims put forward by environmental groups concerning accidental cetacean catches, and dismissing some claims as being no more believable than fairy tales.

France’s National Fisheries Committee (CNPMEM) has issued a statement listing some of the misconceptions being peddled by NGOs and accusing those behind the campaign concerned with dolphin catches of making efforts to denigrate the significant efforts made by the industry, and to demonise an entire profession.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Illegal trade in Africa’s high-value marine products escalating

Tuesday, March 02, 2021

Only six of the 30 African countries with sea cucumber resources have reported total catch their export totals over the past decade, despite an escalating trend of underreporting and illegal trade of it and other high-value marine species in the region.

According to a report by TRAFFIC, an international non-governmental organization that campaigns against illegal trade in wild animals and plants, the current illegal trade in high-value marine products between Africa and Asia –  especially of species like seahorse, sea cucumber, and fish maw – is flourishing. That illegal trade is decimating the species’ populations and denying several coastal communities means to a livelihood, the report found.

A technical operation for the validation of access authorizations to British ports

The logistics between the United Kingdom and the European Union have been complicated after the 'Brexit'. Operators prefer to call at Community ports, read broadly Ireland, and from there access the continent via ferry. Neither the procedures nor the bureaucracy are clear, and the schedules are also a challenge. Now, Spain has announced that it streamlines the procedures for unloading at UK ports. The General Secretariat for Fisheries has announced that it has launched a technical operation for the validation, during weekends and holidays, of the port access authorizations of Spanish vessels that intend to access the ports of the United Kingdom.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: COVID-19 strengthens home meal replacement trend in Japan

Saturday, February 27, 2021

“Nesting behavior” has taken hold in Japan due to COVID-19, resulting in people eating out less.

It’s a trend that is only expected to intensify as Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama, Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo, and Fukuoka prefectures extend their state of emergencies, which were due to lift on 7 February, for another month. While the declarations are in place, the government is asking restaurants and bars to close by 8 p.m.

Instead of eating out, many consumers have been turning to fast food, take-out, and more frequently, to home meal replacement for convenience in Japan, with the latter option known to feature seafood in sushi and tempura formats, among other options.
