Other Media | The Fishing Daily: New Biodegradable Materials for a More Sustainable Tropical Tuna Fishery

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

  • In collaboration with the AZTI Technology Centre, validation tests have commenced on new floating and submerged fish aggregation devices developed by Zunibal.
  • The tests have initiated with an initial phase in a tropical, semi-controlled environment at the IATTC Achotines Laboratory facilities in Panama. Concurrently, real-condition tests are underway with 210 devices distributed between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans to assess their effectiveness.
  • The two solutions integrate a bio-based and compostable material, offering an innovative alternative that significantly reduces waste generation and promotes the sustainability of tuna fishing.

IN BRIEF - Container freight rates soar. Over $1,000 increase for North America and $600 in Europe

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Container freight rates from Asia to Europe and America are rapidly increasing

On the 10th, container freight rates from Asia to the West Coast of North America exceeded $4,000 per 40-foot container, an increase of more than $1,000 from before China's Labor Day (1-5 days) holiday. May 1st is the renewal period for the service contract (SC) for North American routes, but there are few examples of increases at this time. The tide is changing, with not only North American routes but also increases in shipping to northern Europe and the Mediterranean Sea.

As of October 10, freight rates compiled by the Shanghai Shipping Exchange (SSE) are $4,393 to the west coast of North America and $5,562 to the east coast of North America. Compared to April 26, just before the Labor Day holiday, prices to the West Bank increased by $791, and prices to the East Coast increased by $901. Compared to the previous day on the 19th, prices have actually increased by $1,300 to $1,400 for both coasts.

On European routes, where prices are rising along with North America, prices for Northern Europe as of May 10th are $2,869 per 20-foot container (up $569 as of April 26th), and prices for the Mediterranean are $3,915 (up $680 as of April 26th). Shipments to Europe are also being affected by tight space due to shipments being brought forward in preparation for the prolongation of the Red Sea crisis.

IN BRIEF - New muscle suit for fishing sites - reduces burden and provides support

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Innophys Co., Ltd. (Hachioji City, Tokyo, president: Naotaka Otokawa), a venture company originating from Tokyo University of Science, delivered three assist suits developed by the company to JF Akita in February of this year.

Approximately two and a half months have passed since the trial introduction, and we have received positive feedback from fishermen and market participants, saying, "The strain on my lower back has been reduced" and "I can really feel the support it provides."

The company's assist suits have been used in the nursing care, agriculture, construction, and logistics fields, but this is the first time that they have been tested for full-scale implementation in the fishing industry.

A person in charge of the Akita Prefectural Fisheries Promotion Center contacted the company and asked if they would like to conduct a demonstration experiment with a view to introducing it to fisheries workers, and the company received an inquiry about the "Muscle Suit Soft-Power", which reduces the burden on the lower back by 35%. A total of three machines were delivered, including one Muscle Suit Soft-Light, which protects the waist like a corset and eases the burden of work. [....]

IN BRIEF - In election year, Peltola walks complicated path on fisheries and drilling

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

U.S. Rep. Mary Peltola of Alaska this spring unexpectedly pulled her support for a Republican-led bill that seeks to pave the way for more oil drilling in the state, opening her up to criticism from opponents who claim she’s supporting a pro-Biden agenda.

It was the latest in a series of moves by the Democrats that led to a mix of reactions from conservation and tribal groups and resource development advocates.

Peltola late last month backed the controversial Donlin Gold prospect, joining Alaska Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan in a friends-of-the-court legal brief expressing support. That effort drew criticism from a tribal group in the region, and praise from industry trade groups. They called the Southwest Alaska mine one of the state’s “most important and necessary economic development projects.”

Also on May 1, Peltola introduced legislation in the House to stop the Pebble copper and gold mine in the Bristol Bay region that’s home to the world’s largest commercial sockeye salmon fishery. That move drew widespread applause from conservation and tribal groups, and opposition from the mine developer.[continues...]

Other Media | Faro de Vigo: The 'Furor' teaches how to stand up to illegal fishing in the largest maritime exercise in West and Central Africa

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

The Maritime Action Vessel (BAM) Furor, built by Navantia in its shipyard in Ferrol, is immersed in the maritime security exercise Obangame Express 2024, which takes place between May 11 and 16 in the waters of the Gulf of Guinea. The maneuvers in which the Galician vessel participates will serve to evaluate the role it plays together with the rest of the forces present, promoting its "interoperability" to increase the deterrence capacity of the coastal countries against illegal fishing, piracy, illicit trafficking and other maritime threats. It is the largest maritime exercise in West and Central Africa.
