IN BRIEF - Consultation on group division in the coastal fleet length
Wednesday, November 25, 2020
The norwegian supreme legislature has decided that the coastal fleet shall be divided according to actual length, not legal length. This is in line with the government's proposal in the quota report. In today's system, it is the boat's legal length that determines what kind of group it belongs to.The goal is to make the quota system simpler and clearer
"This is an important simplification measure because we now get a division according to how long the boats actually are", says Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen.
The concept of legal length shows how complicated the quota system has become over the years. A boat that has a home length of ten meters can have an actual length of more than ten meters. The reason may be, for example, that the rights a fisherman has "hang" with from the fisherman's old vessel, and that he or she has now got a new vessel that is shorter or longer.
How the change will be implemented is now sent out for consultation.

Brazilian soybean suppliers for the salmon industry, CJ Selecta, Caramuru and Imcopa / Cervejaria Petrópolis, will implement a 100% deforestation-free soy value chain. It is a "bold and historic" commitment that sets a new benchmark for sustainable supply chains and is in stark contrast to the large Brazilian soy traders, Mowi explains on his website. The measure affects all seeds that have been planted since August 2020.
As a result of the measure, the majority of the global farmed salmon industry, including the entire European salmon sector, will source soybeans from Brazilian suppliers whose soy value chains are 100 percent free from deforestation and conversion.

Minister for the Marine, Charlie McConalogue has said that he will be fighting tooth and nail at the European Fisheries Council meeting to get the best deal possible for Irish fishermen in the wake of a poor Brexit agreement for the fishing industry.
Speaking on the Donegal based Highland Radio Nine-til-Noon Show, he told presenter Greg Hughes that he was not happy that Ireland had lost fishing quota but insisted that it was better than the situation where there could have been a no deal. He said:
“I had worked very closely, and the government had worked very closely with the fishing industry right throughout the process of the negotiations in terms of putting it at very strong national approach to both working with their European counterparts.

Scottish seafood exporters have called for more details after Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared to promise a £23m compensation fund for businesses affected by customs chaos following the end of the Brexit transition period.
The Prime Minister’s pledge came on a day of protest as more than 20 lorries, representing angry seafood exporters, staged a go-slow protest in Whitehall. The protest went off peacefully although the Metropolitan Police said 14 people, all either drivers or passengers, have been reported for Covid-related offences.
Boris Johnson said: “Where business, through no fault of their own, have experienced bureaucratic delays, difficulties getting their goods through and when there is a genuine, willing buyer on the other side of the Channel, and they’ve had a problem, then there’s a £23m compensation fund that we’ve set up and we’ll make sure that they get help.”

The Scottish food exporting industry was promised friction-free access to European markets after Brexit.
Its most valuable export, shellfish, goes almost entirely to France, Spain and the Netherlands.
But mistakes, poor direction and last-minute regulations have all contributed to problems, leaving shellfish rotting in their containers.
Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from Glasgow, Scotland.
European aquaculture assumes significant losses due to the pandemic that are putting the viability of many companies at risk. In Spain, those harvested in 2020 are judged as "serious losses" due to hotel closures and the drop in tourism.
They also noticed low prices due to imports of fish from Turkey and Greece, or salmon from Norway. The aquaculture employer Apromar released a balance of the sector, which highlights the impact of the coronavirus and the "unstable scenario" for 2021.
Spanish fish companies maintained their activity during the confinement, as an “essential sector”, but “the operational complications and the volatility of the markets have been difficult challenges to overcome”, according to Apromar.
