IN BRIEF - Kodiak’s trawl fleet heads out for pollock, about 30 vessels expected to be fishing

UNITED STATES
Thursday, January 23, 2020

Kodiak’s trawl fleet is heading out to the fishing grounds to catch pollock in a fishery that opened Jan. 20.

Julie Bonney is the Executive Director of the Alaska Groundfish Data Bank, which represents trawlers and processors.

She says the trawlers are looking at lower quota level this year.

“The pollock quotas this year are about 20 percent less than last year. We’ve got about 30 vessels that will be fishing out of Kodiak.

“And everybody’s really interested to see what the catch rates will be and the grade of fish, just because it’s been so cold and snowy. The past four of five years the fishery’s really taken off on the 20, and done well. But this year it might be delayed somewhat just because of the colder regime that we are working under right now.”

IN BRIEF - Fish farmers anxious as Norway faces political turmoil

NORWAY
Thursday, January 23, 2020

NORWAY’S fish farmers were nervously looking over their shoulders yesterday as the prospect of a general election and a possible left leaning Labour led government loomed.

The country has been plunged into political crisis after the Progress Party decided to leave Erna Solberg’s Conservative coalition administration.

The storm centres on a decision to allow a woman who was a member of Islamic State back into the country.

The anti-immigrant Progress Party, which is led by finance minister Siv Jensen, said the woman’s seriously ill young son can return, but not the mother.

IN BRIEF - Brexit Party MEP causes more confusion by saying 'British fishers shouldn't be punished for their Brexit stance'

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, January 23, 2020

Brexit Party MEP June Mummery isn't as well known as her colleagues like Nigel Farage and Ann Widdecombe but in the past week has become infamous for her comments on Brexit and the fishing industry.

On Monday, she confused many people after appearing to realise that by leaving the European Union, Brits will no longer be able to hold those people in Brussels responsible for what happens to 'Britain's waters.'

You could have been forgiven for thinking that this 'lightbulb' moment from a Brexiteer would have been the last we would have heard from her, as, after all, Brexit is going to happen on January 31.

LAND based salmon farming company Pure Salmon has chosen France to site its biggest facility to date.

The €175million plant will be built in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, the seafood gateway to Europe, and aims to produce 10,000 tonnes of salmon a year.

The new state-of-the-art unit will be fully integrated from hatchery and grow-out to processing and smoking. Construction of the site is due to start in Q4 2020, with the first harvest of market size salmon expected in 2023.

IN BRIEF - Crackdown on importers of illegal fishing gear

TANZANIA
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

 DAR ES SALAAM (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian authorities on Sunday declared a special crackdown on importers of illegal fishing gear saying the malpractice affected the fisheries industry in the east African nation.

"The government has reinforced inspection and control at all entry points to ensure that not a single illegal fishing gear is imported into the country," said Luhaga Mpina, the Minister for Livestock and Fisheries.

"Importers of illegal fishing gear are warned against involvement in the malpractice. Those who are implicated in the malpractice will face the full force of the law," warned Mpina on a visit to Nyotaventure Fishnet, a fishing gear factory based in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam.

Mpina said fishing gear that was produced locally were of high standard and urged manufacturers of the fishing gear to produce in bulk.

Recently Mpina visited fishermen in parts of Lakes Nyasa, Victoria and Tanganyika, and along coastal areas of the Indian Ocean where they complained to him that imported illegal fishing gear was posing a threat to the country's fishing industry.

The fishermen complained to the minister that illegal fishing gear was being sold openly across the country and no efforts were insight to control the situation.


IN BRIEF - Italian restaurant chain ASK is fined £40,000

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

A High Street restaurant chain has been fined £40,000 for misleading customers by selling a lobster dish that was made largely of white fish.

ASK Italian, which boasts 112 restaurants across the UK, described its £14.95 Aragosta e Gamberoni dish as 'lobster and king prawns in a creamy tomato sauce with a hint of chilli'.

But a Trading Standards inspection revealed the dish contained just 70p worth of lobster, which only accounted for 35 per cent of the dish. 

Inspectors found 34 per cent of the meal was a mix of white fish called surimi, which is often used to make crab sticks, and was styled to look and taste like lobster. 

Azzuri Restaurants Limited, which trades as ASK Italian, was fined £40,000 after admitting misleadingly describing food at Swansea Magistrates Court.

IN BRIEF - Increasing quality of seafood products for better competitiveness

VIET NAM
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The prices of material pangasius fish have declined for a long time, causing several farmers in the Mekong Delta provinces to suffer huge losses.

Mr. Cao Luong Tri, a farmer in Cho Moi District in An Giang Province, said that this year is considered to be the gloomiest year for fish farmers in the Mekong Delta provinces when the price of pangasius fish merely fluctuated from VND18,000 to VND20,000 per kilogram, causing a loss of VND3,000-VND5,000 per kilogram for farmers. This situation is totally different from that in 2018. Due to low prices and poor consumption, he decided to hold more than 700 tons of his pangasius fish.

Some fish ponds in Dong Thap, Vinh Long, Ben Tre provinces and Can Tho City have also passed the harvest time with the weight of some fish up to 1.3-1.4 kilograms per fish but factories still neglect to buy. At the present, although it is the end of the year, the price of material pangasius fish has dropped to around VND17,500-VND18,000 per kilogram, depending on payment method.
