Other Media | SeafoodSource: Aquafeed companies issue ultimatum: Fix North Atlantic blue whiting issues or we'll stop buying it

Wednesday, February 01, 2023

The North Atlantic Pelagic Advocacy Group (NAPA)has declared its members will cease buying North Atlantic blue whiting if upcoming negotiations dont' bring its total allowable catch (TAC) back into recommended levels.

Skretting, Cargill, and BioMar, all major aquafeed companies that are NAPA members, said without any action by coastal states to reduce fishing pressure on North Atlantic blue whiting, they will stop buying the species completely. The three businesses said that sustainable feed is essential to the sustainable development of aquaculture – and the current lack of sustainable fishing pressures on the species poses a problem.

Burela producers call for action before the damage is irreversible

The paradox is served. Bottom longlining, the gear that has the least impact on the seabed of those prohibited between 400 and 800 meters in 87 areas of the northeast Atlantic, is the one that has suffered the most damage of all. And the skewered hake, a demersal species where it exists, the most affected by an execution regulation designed to protect deep-sea species, such as sea bream, ling, palo or black scabbardfish.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Port of A Coruña registers a growth in port traffic of more than 25%: fishing, the only sector that decreases

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

The Port of A Coruña has registered an overall growth in port traffic of over 25%, its third best year. In the year 2022, 14.9 million tons of merchandise were moved in the Coruña docks, compared to 11.8 million in 2021, which implies "the greatest growth in the Spanish port system," says the Port Authority.

Despite the fact that, in general, all sectors are recovering, the fishing sector closed 2022 with similar figures to 2021. In fresh fishing, it fell by -0.88%, going from a total of 28,331 tons to 28,082. remains concerned about the great obstacles it faces, such as the price of fuel and, above all, the European Union's quota policy, which seriously affects species with great prominence in the Lonja de A Coruña", maintains port.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Mowi gets another tick from ASC

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Mowi’s salmon farm off the island of Muck has become its 26th Scottish site to earn Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) accreditation in the space of around three and a half years.

Until July 2019, Mowi Scotland’s practice of growing around half of its smolts in freshwater lochs made ASC certification of marine sites impossible because the ASC’s Salmon Standard required smolts to be raised in on-land facilities.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Stepping up technology in the Indonesian seaweed sector

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Pak Asdar Marsuki is working closely with seaweed farmers in South Sulawesi, where MARI Oceans – a community development vehicle – is trialling new technologies in a bid to optimise farming operations.

MARI Oceans tries to support on-farm business development, starting from providing seeds, financing, production facilities, then providing knowledge, and upgrading the skills of farmers. MARI also provides facilities for harvesting, post-harvesting, providing facilities for processing to packing, and inclusive market intermediation. Eventually, I hope to be able to have a processing unit as well, which could provide added value.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Alaska’s Red King Crab Savings Area to remain open for fishing, despite population crash

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Pollock trawlers will be allowed to fish in Alaska’s Red King Crab Savings Area this season, despite a mysterious mortality event that has resulted in the cancelation of the red king crab season in the largest U.S. state.

In October 2022, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game canceled all snow crab, red king crab, and blue king crab seasons for 2022-2023, after trawl surveys showed a continuing crash in abundance. The winter red king crab season in Alaska’s Bering Sea was also canceled in 2021-2022. In response, the Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers had petitioned NOAA to close the Red King Crab Savings Area
