Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Peru encourages nearly 5,000 fishermen to request the approved bonds to mitigate the economic impact on the sector

Thursday, February 22, 2024

The Ministry of Production (Produce) of Peru calls on potential beneficiaries of the Artisanal Fisherman's Bonus to go to the offices of the Banco de la Nación to receive the subsidy approved by the Peruvian Government with the aim of mitigating the economic impacts as a result of the El Niño Phenomenon and anomalous waves. The deadline to collect this aid ends on February 28.

So far, 29,596,000 Peruvian soles, more than 7,173,600 euros, have been distributed to benefit more than 42,280 on-board and non-board artisanal fishermen, within the framework of the economic recovery plan “Con Punch Peru”.

A study commissioned by the European Parliament's Fisheries Committee takes stock of existing selectivity practices in EU fisheries, identifying progress made and avenues to be explored to achieve better results.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Bakkafrost banking on better biological performance in 2024 after challenging year

Thursday, February 22, 2024

Glyvrar, Faroe Islands-based Bakkafrost Group delayed harvests planned for last year in both the Faroes and Scotland until early 2024, and the company said it hopes improved biological performance elicits a solid – albeit delayed – harvest and turns around what was a disappointing end to 2023.

For FY 2023, the company’s revenues amounted to DKK 7.14 billion (USD 1 billion, EUR 957.8 million), and its operational earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) totaled DKK 1.5 billion (USD 217.3 million, EUR 201.2 million). Harvests, meanwhile, amounted to 73,006 metric tons (MT) gutted weight.

IN RIEF - Shifting pollock spawning complicates fisheries management in Gulf of Alaska

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

Right about now, millions of walleye pollock are gathering in the Shelikof Strait, near Kodiak Island. They mass there every year towards the end of winter to prepare for spawning. 

And soon, scientists will follow them to do their annual winter trawl survey. 

“It’s timed to be there and survey the pollock just prior to the peak of spawning,” said fisheries biologist Lauren Rogers, with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “So that timing of when pollock are going to be migrating to the spawning grounds or away from the spawning grounds is then going to be particularly important for that survey.”

Fisheries biologist Lauren Rogers (NOAA)

But the timing of pollock spawning is becoming more unreliable, as human-caused climate change warms the ocean. That means the scientific surveys that are used for fisheries management could become unreliable too.

Between 2017 and 2019, surveys done by the Alaska Fisheries Science Center across the Gulf of Alaska produced wildly different estimates of pollock biomass. Summer surveys across the feeding grounds showed near-record lows, while the winter survey in Shelikof Strait showed record highs.[...]

IN BRIEF - Fisheries eyeing China as an ideal market: MD

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

The National Fisheries Authority (NFA) sees China as an ideal market for Papua New Guinea to take advantage of and open.

Managing director Justin Ilakini said trade with the Chinese market would favorably impact the development of PNG's non-tuna sector.

Ilakini said that while the European Union remains a key market in terms of value and quantity, greater returns are being seen in the tuna industry.

However, 98 percent of the people who participated were engaged in other fishing activities, such as fishing coastal and continental or aquaculture.

Ilakini also noted some stagnation in investment in the country's tuna industry over the past eight years for reasons beyond his control.

He said there has been a slow but strong indication of investment interest, especially with the return of ships.

He attributed this positive step to the government addressing policy and regulatory constraints.

"Those are positive signs, but when it comes to investing, it takes time to slowly build trust," he said.

"Currently, we have about 200 fishing companies at various levels and various sectors; and bringing aquaculture in terms of farmers, there are thousands."

Ilakini said the fishing sector is currently valued at around K5 billion in terms of money generated.

IN BRIEF - Quang Nam develops logistics services for offshore fishing, combat IUU fishing

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

Developing logistics services for offshore fishing is a key solution that the central province of Quang Nam will implement this year to fight illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and promote sustainable fisheries development.

Quang Nam (VNA) – Developing logistics services for offshore fishing is a key solution that the central province of Quang Nam will implement this year to fight illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and promote sustainable fisheries development.

According to Tich, the provincial administration has invested thousands of billions of VND to renovate and upgrade Tam Quang and Tam Giang fishing ports in Nui Thanh district, Hong Trieu fishing port in Duy Xuyen district, Tam Phu fishing wharf port in Tam Ky city, and Thanh Ha port in Hoi An city.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Concern in the French fleet over possible new closures in the Bay of Biscay

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

Yesterday, Tuesday, February 20, the fishing ban for professionals in the Bay of Biscay ended. All boats over 8 meters can now resume normal activity.
