IN BRIEF - SQUID: Chinese government-PRODUCE meeting shocks fishing industry

Monday, May 29, 2023

The journalist Rafael Rey, of the Willax Television program 'Rey con Barba', has made public in Peru that on May 2 the Chinese ambassador, together with a commercial and economic team, held a meeting with the Vice Minister of Fisheries to discuss the issue of the cihna jig fleet and the entrance to the peruvian port.
Since Peru required foreign vessels wanting to use its ports to carry an additional satellite system in 2020, only five Asian vessels have installed the device.
Instead, half of the foreign fleet has preferred to bear the cost of returning to Chinese ports or staying longer at sea.
Representatives of the Peruvian fishing sector fear that control regulations in Peru will be relaxed due to pressure from China.
Already last April, the artisan leaders in northern Peru dedicated to giant squid fishing were forced to pause their celebrations for Holy Week because they were informed that the Ministry of Production had "secretly" designated a multidisciplinary work group to discuss modifications to the Supreme Decree. No. 016-2020-Produce.

IN BRIEF - Trollers, state file new appeal in lawsuit to halt SE Alaska salmon fishery

Monday, May 29, 2023

Plaintiffs want to end program to provide more salmon to endangered whales

A new appeal has been filed in a fisheries case rooted in the alleged impact of the Southeast Alaska commercial salmon troll fishery on endangered Southern Resident killer whales (SRKW) in Puget Sound.

The Alaska Trollers Association (ATA) on Monday asked the U.S. District Court for Western Washington to deny a plea from the Wild Fish Conservancy (WFC) in Seattle to end an already funded prey increase program intended to provide more salmon to the endangered killer whales. The WFC continued litigation to halt the commercial salmon troll fishery, contending that halting that fishery would provide more fish in Puget Sound for then endangered whales.

The WFC argues in its motion that “any risk of adverse impacts to SRKW from vacatur of the prey increase program has been largely negated by the court’s partial vactur of the incidental take statement (ITS) authorizing the commercial harvest of Chinook salmon-the activities that necessitated the mitigation in the first place.”

Monday, May 29, 2023

With approximately a million tons exported annually, Indonesia is the largest tuna producer in the world. More so, Indonesia is a key player in responsible sourcing practices as a significant portion of its tuna is caught by traditional tuna fisheries using ‘one-by-one fishing’ methods.
