IN BRIEF - Canned Tuna Maker Bumble Bee Preps for Bankruptcy Filing

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Bumble Bee Foods LLC is preparing to file for bankruptcy within days over mounting legal expenses stemming from its involvement in a conspiracy to fix prices on canned tuna, according to people familiar with the matter.

The San Diego-based company, owned by London-based private-equity firm Lion Capital, is expected to file a chapter 11 petition shortly and will put itself up for sale, the people said. Bumble Bee didn’t respond to a request for comment. Lion Capital, which bought the company in 2010 for USD 980 million, also didn’t immediately respond.

Bumble Bee pleaded guilty in 2017 and agreed to pay a USD 25 million fine for having formed a cartel with its two main competitors, Chicken of the Sea and StarKist Co.

Otros Medios | EuropaAzul: Francia condenada por la muerte de cientos de delfines por la pesca en la costa atlántica

FRANCE
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Es una victoria para Sea Shepherd. Esta ONG, especializada en la preservación de los océanos, ha conseguido que el Gobierno francés sea condenado por su falta de protección de los delfines frente a las actividades pesqueras en el Atlántico, consideradas responsables de la muerte de cientos de estos mamíferos marinos protegidos, atrapados cada año accidentalmente en las redes.

Así pues, en una sentencia de 2 de julio, el Tribunal Administrativo de París consideró que el Estado había «retrasado la aplicación de medidas concretas en vista de los episodios recurrentes, desde el decenio de 1990, acentuados desde 2016, de exceso de mortalidad de cetáceos en la costa atlántica, en particular en el Golfo de Vizcaya», incumpliendo así las obligaciones que le incumben en virtud de la legislación europea.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Supporting sustainable seaweed farming for East Africa’s coastal communities

TANZANIA
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Climate change and unsustainable practices are threatening seaweed farming in Tanzania, an industry that employs over 25,000 farmers, of whom around 80 percent are women. To help address these challenges, The Nature Conservancy is partnering with Cargill, local governments and researchers to empower communities through increased productivity, environmental training and mentorship.

Along the Tanzanian coastline, seaweed aquaculture is an important industry to coastal women and also serves as an alternative livelihood to overharvested local fisheries. However, Tanzanian seaweed aquaculture has been stagnating recently, due to issues that include changing water-quality conditions and poor seedstock.

Othe Media | SeafoodSource:Japan’s fisheries white paper outlines measures to boost fisheries in FY2020

JAPAN
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Japan recently released a comprehensive white paper on fisheries that contains extensive plans to boost its fisheries and fishing industry in the hopes of reversing negative trends.

Japan’s fishing industry has been in a long decline since the loss of access to the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the United States, and a sharp reduction in quota for Russian waters in the early to mid-1980s. Those losses prompted a government-sponsored rationalization fleet reduction. Effort was shifted to sardines in Japanese waters, but the stock soon collapsed, never to return to such high levels.

The number employed in fishing has also been declining.
