IN BRIEF - Toyosu market to reopen to public today

Monday, June 08, 2020

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government will reopen the Toyosu wholesale food market, which replaced Tsukiji, to tourists today.

The move comes after the market in Koto Ward shut tourists out for about three months to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.

At each entrance, visitors will be asked to undergo temperature checks and disinfect their hands with alcohol-based sanitizers. Visitors without masks will be refused entry.

Market workers and visitors will use separate passageways at the facility.

The metro government will increase security guards at the viewing area for the market's popular tuna auction and in the zone where sushi and other restaurants are situated to prevent crowding.

Before the pandemic, lines were common in front of popular restaurants, but that practice will end after the reopening.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Steering the States towards sustainable offshore aquaculture

Thursday, June 04, 2020

Danielle Blacklock, who was recently appointed director of NOAA’s Office of Aquaculture, talks to The Fish Site about how to ensure the US develops a sustainable offshore aquaculture sector, what the country can learn from other nations and how the sector is coping with COVID-19.

In one way or another I have been involved with the aquaculture sector for over a decade. I worked as a professional cook as a way to put myself through school and I was drawn by the idea of growing something – raising a product tide to table. Working in aquaculture allows me to support several things I am passionate about, including coastal economies, increasing domestic seafood and feeding our communities.
