Friday, November 24, 2023

Chairman of the Fish Union Alexander Panin took part in the final meeting of the Committee of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the development of the agro-industrial complex.

Alexander Panin in his speech outlined systemic industry problems and proposed including a number of issues in the Committee’s work plan for the next year. 

These are, in particular:

1?) On the effectiveness of the food labeling project ·      

2?) On reforming the procedure for attracting labor migrants

3?) About the name of products during their production according to GOST, technical specifications (TU) and organization standards (STO)

4?) About changes in customs duties

5?) On measures of state support for domestic fish processing

6?) On the unification of national codes of classification of economic activity (OKPED) with codes of the commodity nomenclature of foreign economic activity (TN FEA).

As Alexander Panin noted, changes are being introduced in the industry field that significantly complicate the work of the Russian fisheries industry.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: RFMOs embracing harvest strategies, but they remain difficult to implement

Friday, November 24, 2023

Numerous NGOs have been pushing for regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) to adopt harvest strategies as a means of effectively managing seafood stocks, but even their fiercest advocates admit the path toward their adoption isn’t easy.

A harvest strategy is a method in which RFMOs and other fisheries managers develop predetermined actions that trigger when stock assessments, catch data, and return on effort – among other metrics – reach certain thresholds. In recent years, RFMOs have been adopting them because they help eliminate the political wrangling that would otherwise dilute scientific advice.

IN BRIEF - Harmful algae killed 1,500 tons of salmon in the Reloncaví Estuary

Thursday, November 23, 2023

  • One week after the start of the emergency, 100% of this volume has already been withdrawn and sent to fishmeal production plants.
  • "Coordination has been more efficient than in previous contingencies," Sernapesca stated.

The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service reported this Wednesday that the "contingency due to harmful algal blooms" that began a week ago in the Reloncaví Estuary, in the Los Lagos Region, left a balance of 1,500 tons of dead salmon.
Sernapesca explained that although the emergency affected nine farming centers, 60 percent of this mortality (890 tons) was concentrated in just one concession.
To date, in addition, all of the dead specimens have already been removed from the centers and transferred to reduction plants for the production of fishmeal: 95% to plants in Los Lagos and the remaining 5 percent to the Biobío Region.
At this time "a drop in the concentration levels of the microalgae Thalassiosira pseudonana has been recorded in the area", which allows the emergency to be considered over.

Widespread mismanagement and government-sanctioned overfishing of capelin and herring threaten economic and ecological sustainability

VANCOUVER, unceded and traditional homelands of the Musqueam and the Squamish - In the face of accelerating climate change, Oceana Canada's 2023 Fishery Audit, launched on World Fisheries Day, exposes Canada's persistent mismanagement and failure to rebuild depleted populations, harming marine life, coastal communities, the seafood economy and our planet.

Now in its seventh year, the Fishery Audit assesses the current state and management of Canada’s fish stocks, tracks annual progress and provides recommendations to meet federal policy commitments to return abundant wild marine fish populations to Canada’s oceans.

“Once again, less than a third of Canada’s marine fish and invertebrate populations can be considered healthy and nearly 40 per cent of fisheries lack enough information to assign the health status needed to properly manage them,” said Rebecca Schijns, Fishery Scientist, Oceana Canada.[...]
