Otros medios | WorldFishing: New working groups focus on UK Shellfish

Friday, November 20, 2020

Three new groups have been formed to provide a forum for industry, regulators and researchers to improve the management of shellfish fisheries around the UK.

The Shellfish Industry Advisory Group (SIAG) is focused on the strategic issues and is covering trade issues, competition for marine space and the management measures that need to be in place to ensure the sustainable management of individual species.

A key priority for the SIAG is the development of a National Shellfish Fisheries Plan. Barrie Deas, chief executive of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations and chair of the SIAG, said that shellfish was the UKs most valuable fishery. “In 2019 over 137,000 tonnes of shellfish were landed in the UK, at a value of over £370 million,” he said.

Castilianized as Black Friday, the day that was previously held on the last Friday in November has expanded to occupy a fortnight of the month and has been adding more and more commercial sectors.

Thursday, November 19, 2020

The last hope for a UK-EU trade and fisheries deal before the New Year is fading, jeopardizing food exports to the UK and leading to billions of dollars in losses. Thus. Danish fishermen and food companies are preparing for a hard 'Brexit that can mark a before and after and subject to tight tariffs and overwhelming bureaucracy.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Irish court action challenges EU fishing quota system

Thursday, November 19, 2020

With European Union fisheries ministers getting ready for their annual quota-setting negotiations next month, an Irish environmentalist group has been given leave by the High Court for a judicial review aimed at challenging the E.U. regulations setting 2020 fishing quotas under the bloc's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

The Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE) said it’s taking the action (a judicial review is a High Court review or examination of legislation or the decisions of lower courts) because of the E.U.’s failure to meet its own legally defined deadline of ending overfishing in all stocks by 2020.
