Other Media | FiskerForum: Movement for South Atlantic RFMO gathers strength

Thursday, June 04, 2020

Two Spanish fishing industry organisations have signed a landmark agreement with a body based in Argentina which actively promotes the establishment of sustainable management for the South Atlantic, the only sea area in the world that does not have a relevant Regional Fisheries Management Organisation (RFMO).

OPRAS – the Organisation for the Protection of South Atlantic Fishery Resources – is based in Argentina and promotes sustainable management for FAO Zone 41, which has been under increasing pressure from Asian squid fleets operating along the edge of the Argentinian EEZ where there have been recurring flashpoints.

Thursday, June 04, 2020

A Panel gathers data and indicators from the food systems of more than 230 countries and territories.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and the Alliance for a Healthier World at Johns Hopkins University have presented a new easy to use online tool designed to help decision makers understand their food systems, identify their mechanisms of change and decide how to manage them.

IN BRIEF - Rosrybolovstvo: 'Within four years we will get a completely different quality of the crab fishing fleet'

Thursday, June 04, 2020

On June 2, at the shipyards of Nakhodka Ship Repair Yard JSC (NSRY), a solemn ceremony of laying eight crab fishermen under the investment quota program was held. In videoconference mode, the ceremony was attended, in particular, by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev and Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Vasily Sokolov.

“Today, at the Nakhodka Shipyard, the first series of vessels for the extraction of crab is laid. This is a fairly large order. Quite a long time ago, the company did not receive orders of this volume. This order took place thanks to the decision by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin to introduce the mechanism of “quotas in exchange for investments”. Six buildings are laid for the Antey group of companies and two buildings for the Pacific Fisheries Company. I want to wish good luck to all participants in the process: the shipbuilders, for whom this is a large order, the opportunity to expand their competencies and give a new impetus to the development of their enterprise, and the fishermen who are waiting for these vessels to continue working and catch crabs. This is to some extent a symbolic moment. Because the money of fishing companies operating in the Far East went to other countries. It is important to turn the tide, to ensure that the money earned on the territory of the Russian Federation remains in our country. We have been talking for a long time about the need to revive shipbuilding, today this is happening. The flagship is the Zvezda shipyard, which is being built next to Vladivostok in Nakhodka. But it is necessary to maintain and develop all existing enterprises. I hope that the vessels at the NSRZ will be built on time and with good quality, ”said Yuri Trutnev. But it is necessary to maintain and develop all existing enterprises. I hope that the vessels at the NSRY will be built on time and with good quality”, said Yuri Trutnev.

Thursday, June 04, 2020

The celebration coincides with a particularly complex moment for the sector given the impact of COVID-19

On the occasion of the celebration, today June 3, of the Global Exhibition Day, the world association that brings together the main organizers of fairs and exhibitions has recalled the "key" role of these events in the "reconstruction of economies". The celebration of this conference, which reaches its fifth edition and reaches 109 countries around the world, coincides with a particularly complex moment for the sector. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced events to be postponed and, in the worst case, to be suspended. A situation that the naval and fishing sector has suffered directly.

Kai Hattendorf, CEO of UFI, the Global Association for the Exhibition Industry, recalls that "as the world prepares to recover financially from the COVID-19 pandemic, fairs and venues are key."

IN BRIEF - Production statistics for fisheries and aquaculture, with minimum catches of saury and salmon

Thursday, June 04, 2020

Changes in the marine environment and increasing global catch have affected a variety of fish species. According to fisheries and aquaculture production statistics released at the end of May, the catches of saury, salmon and squid in 2019 were the lowest since the start of the statistics. Compared to peak times, saury decreased by 92%, salmon decreased by 80%, and squid decreased by 94%.

On the other hand, sardines and yellowtails are on the rise. Sardine increased 2.5% year-on-year and passed the mackerel to become the top catcher. The total production volume in 2019 was 4.16 million tons, down 6% from the previous year. Most fish species are sardine, second mackerel, scallop, third bonito, fourth tuna, and fifth pollock.

Thursday, June 04, 2020

The ongoing annual meeting of the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s parliament, which began on 22 May, has been dominated by discussions on the impact of the coronavirus, which forced the postponement of the meeting from its original dates in March.

But within the corridors of the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, where delegates meet once a year to rubber stamp laws drafted by the Communist Party, delegates from the fishing industry to the NPC were on the hunt for government backing for deals and carve-outs. Among them was Xia Yong Xiang, director of the Daishan Fishery Cooperative in Daishan, part of the massive east coast metropolis of Zhoushan, which has traditionally been China’s largest fishery port since the country started sending vessels to distant waters in the 1980s. Xia has been pushing for government subsidies to be refocused on Chinese vessels operating in the North Pacific and the Indian Ocean – which would help his firm, since many of its 600 vessels work those waters.

Other Media | Foodnavigator: Hooked on salmon: ‘World’s first’ shredded plant-based alternative eyes European market

Wednesday, June 03, 2020

Swedish start-up Hooked is developing what it claims to be the ‘world’s first’ plant-based shredded salmon product. The aim? To meet the ‘rapidly increasing’ demand for seafood with healthy, tasty, and planet-friendly alternatives, the founders tell FoodNavigator.

Hooked was founded by Swedish entrepreneurs Emil Wasteson and Tom Johanson early last year after Johanson’s sister took the plunge into veganism. “There existed very few products and none that tasted good, or had the same nutritional value as traditional seafood,"

Upon further research, the duo became increasingly concerned at the state of the seafood industry. “It became obvious that the current seafood industry is environmentally unsustainable, and that seafood consists of more toxins than ever before.

“With the booming of plant-based foods, we saw a great market potential as well as an opportunity to make a large social impact.”
