Other Media | FiskerForum: King Crab Quota Increase Recommended

Monday, November 09, 2020

Scientists at Norway’s Institute of Marine Research have recommended an increase in the 2021 king crab quota to 1780 tonnes from this year’s 1530 tonne quota. Outside the quota-regulated area, the recommendation is for free fishing.

Management objectives for king crab are to maintain a long-term fishery in a limited area in Aust-Finnmark, and at the same time to limit the spread of the species as much as possible outside this area. A relatively high level of fishing effort is expected, but not so much as to endanger the stock’s stability.

IN BRIEF - Sernapesca delivered its fifth report on the situation of the Chinese squid fishing fleet

Sunday, November 08, 2020

Valparaíso - Last Friday, from the Service's Satellite Monitoring Center, the National Director of Sernapesca, Alicia Gallardo Lagno, delivered her fifth report on the situation of the Chinese fishing fleet that has moved through the Pacific Ocean, approaching the coasts from various South American countries.

Recounting the situation, the Deputy Director of Fisheries, Fernando Naranjo, pointed out that four weeks ago there were 340 Chinese vessels in fishing operation north of our maritime territory, off Peru, which caused concern among national fishermen. Fifteen days later, the closest vessel to our shores was 260 miles from our exclusive economic zone. And on October 30, it was observed that part of the vessels began to move northwest, probably back to their home port in China.

The rest of the fleet remains off the Peruvian coast, and the closest ship to Chile was today 433 miles away. For all this, the low risk condition is maintained, regarding a possible illegal incursion into our waters.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Food and industry chiefs in Brexit plea

Friday, November 06, 2020

The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation has joined with other leading bodies in the country’s food and drink sector in a plea to the Prime Minister for more time to deal with the impact of Brexit.

In an open letter to Boris Johnson the industry chiefs express concern that uncertainty over Brexit is compounding pressures on the industry as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The letter says: “What we do in the next 60 days is critical to the survival of many food, drink, farming, fishing and seafood businesses and the supply chain and jobs they support.”

It warns that the “fallout from a no-deal would be catastrophic” and calls for a six-month grace period in which the rules that will require those selling products to Europe to produce export health certificates and other documentation would be suspended or relaxed.
