Other Media | The Fish Site: Restricted antibiotics and sulphites are rife in US shrimp imports

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, December 30, 2020

A case study from Louisiana suggests that most shrimp products that are imported into the US contain antibiotic residues and sulphites, violating the country’s labelling and regulatory standards.

A recent paper published in Aquaculture Reports suggests that shrimp imports to the US are falling short of consumer safety standards. Researchers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana went to multiple grocery stores in the region and purchased a variety of fresh and frozen shrimp products originating from Vietnam, Thailand, Ecuador, China, India, Indonesia and Bangladesh. They then screened the shrimp for sulphite exposure and veterinary antibiotics that have been banned in the US.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Hake, rooster and monkfish will keep the distribution key without being affected by the Brexit agreement

SPAIN
Tuesday, December 29, 2020

The 25% cut in the average value of the catches that Community fisheries catch in British waters and that the EU has given to continue having access to those Gran Sol fishing grounds for five years does not affect important species such as hake, monkfish and rooster that will keep the distribution key, like the xarda or verdel, horse mackerel and lily or blue whiting.

This is the main basis that the Minister of Fisheries Luis Planas maintains, to say that “it is a good agreement” and that he stated hours after the signing of the agreement, maintaining that “the Spanish fleet will continue its activity in British waters under conditions similar to the current ones »

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Scotland’s salmon farmers appeal for priority access to Channel crossings

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, December 29, 2020

Three days before the UK leaves the EU, Scotland’s salmon farmers, are demanding seafood consignments at the Channel crossings are given priority by the UK Government.

The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation, the trade body for Scotland’s salmon farmers, say it is imperative that the UK Government delivers on its commitment to prioritise perishable seafood. Channel crossings to France have been chaotic since Sunday 20th December.

The UK Department for Transport has plans to prioritise seafood and day-old chicks, allowing these products to be fast-tracked through the Channel crossing points, by-passing queues of lorries waiting to get into France.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Mixed reaction for Brexit trade deal

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, December 28, 2020

Relief at one end of the UK seafood and fishing spectrum – with dismay and accusations of a sell-out at the other. That is the contrasting reaction to the news on Christmas Eve that Britain had finally reached a trade deal with the EU.

The announcement was broadly welcomed (with reservations) by the Scottish Salmon Producers’ Association, whose members arguably had the most to lose under a no-deal scenario.

But the main UK fishing organisations have said they are deeply disappointed at the outcome, claiming they will only receive a fraction of what they were promised in the Leave campaign.

DENMARK
Monday, December 28, 2020

The Danish fleet has traditionally caught 40% of its fish and derives 30% of catch values from UK waters – and under the deal struck between the EU and the UK, the Danish industry can expect to lose heavily as quotas are transferred to the British fleet.

‘We expect fishermen to lose their livelihoods, and this will be a heavy blow to Denmark, and to North and West Jutland, where fishing plays a key role and is the lifeblood of many local communities.
