Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Aquaculture has improved food security, says UN

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Aquaculture has expanded fish availability to regions and countries with otherwise limited or no access to the farmed species, often at cheaper prices, leading to improved nutrition and food security.

That’s one of the conclusions in the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report, The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, published today.

In his foreword to the report, FAO director-general Qu Dongyu writes that since 2015 the numbers of undernourished and malnourished people have been growing, and innovative solutions were required to produce more food, ensure access to it, and improve nutrition.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Eastern Tuna and Billfish Fishery on track for MSC blue tick

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Australia’s Eastern Tuna and Billfish Fishery is on track to be certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council in late August. The Public Comment Draft Report was published on 27th May this year, representing another significant milestone on the journey to receive MSC certification.

‘Gaining MSC certification validates the sustainability of the ETBF fishery and proves that our food producers are stewards of ocean sustainability,’ said David Ellis, CEO of Tuna Australia.
‘The certification will provide Tuna Australia members with a number of benefits, including access to new markets and premium prices.’

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Vietnam endorses free trade agreement with EU

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Lawmakers in Vietnam’s National Assembly on 8 June have approved a decision to create a free trade deal with the European Union that is expected to open a way for more seafood products to flow into the E.U.

The European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is expected to enter into force from August, Tuoi Tre Online reported 8 June.

The European Parliament endorsed the deal with Vietnam on 12 February and the European Council approved it on 30 March.

The agreement, the “most modern, comprehensive and ambitious agreement ever concluded between the E.U. and a developing country,” will abolish 99 percent of customs duties between the two sides over the next 10 years.

IN BRIEF - MSC response to the UN state of the world’s fishing and aquaculture report 2020

Monday, June 08, 2020

Marine Stewardship Council Chief Executive, Rupert Howes, said:

“The world’s appetite for seafood is greater than ever. But if we are to continue to meet future demands, we must accelerate the uptake of sustainable fisheries management globally.   

“Over a third of fisheries (34.2%) are operating at unsustainable levels, with this trend continuing to worsen slightly. But there are encouraging signs. For species where effective management has been implemented, such as Skipjack tuna, Alaska pollock and Atlantic cod, there have been improvements in stock recovery.   

“The global seafood industry has already moved at speed to adapt to the disruption of the coronavirus pandemic; when we emerge from this crisis it is vital that we ‘build back better’ with sustainability at its heart.  

“We know what works: establishing science-based management regimes, ending harmful subsidies, effective harvest control rules and clamping down on illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing.  

“The call from the FAO to ensure that all fish stocks are managed within biological sustainable limits is welcome. This is essential to safeguard seafood supplies. The MSC provides a benchmark and tools to help fisheries all over the world achieve this.”

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: SOFIA 2020: Capture fisheries hold the pulse and grow 3.5% to 96.4 million tons

Monday, June 08, 2020

World production of fisheries and aquaculture totals 172.7 million tons, an increase of 5.8%

For the third consecutive year, world wild capture fishery production has grown again. In total, capture fisheries generated 96.4 million tonnes in 2018, compared to 93.1 million tonnes in 2017, according to the 2020 update of the SOFIA report, The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, which FAO launched today coinciding with the celebration of World Oceans Day. Capture fisheries production grew in one year -from 2017 to 2018- 3.3 million tons, 3.5% more, a growth driven by marine fishing. While catches in inland waters represent 12 million tons (11.9 million in 2017), the catch in marine waters was 84.4 tons, compared to 81.2 in 2017.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Russia exploring move into Antarctic krill fishery

Monday, June 08, 2020

Russian government officials have set their sights on expansion into the Antarctic krill fishery as part of a national strategy to increase domestic seafood production.

Growing Russia’s krill catch is a significant part of a strategy crafted by Ilya Shestakov, chairman of the Russia’s Federal Agency for Fisheries, to reach the country’s goal of doubling the country’s revenues from seafood exports. Recently, the agency’s representatives have begun promotion of the concept in Russian media and at industry events.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: 'We are actually happy not to be a tourist attraction this year'

Monday, June 08, 2020

Many seafood stores around Europe are suffering and will be challenged during the missing tourism season to stay afloat. But local Copenhagen fish shop is relieved to not have to serve foreign tourists this summer.

HAV.dk is a fish shop located in the heart of Copenhagen. Right by the most trafficked metro stop, that connects all parts of the town. Here a closed glass square was built on top of the remains of the local greens market. The food square “Torvehallerne” is known for attracting lots of tourists during the summer season. A place to take a small bite of all the Danish goods, and to buy more to take home. This year will be different.

Other Media | FiskerForum: No-Fishing zones threatened for UK waters

Monday, June 08, 2020

In spite of having what the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations described as a ‘world-beating Marine Protected Areanetwork,’ the UK authorities are being urged to ban fishing across a series of Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMAs), advocated by the government-sponsored Benyon review.

According to the NFFO, the the review panel, which included a number of leading MPA lobbyists, undertook only minimal engagement with fishing bodies.

‘This comes as a hammer blow for fishing communities having to cope with the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainties of the Brexit negotiations,’ said NFFO assistant chief executive Dale Rodmell.
