Friday, November 27, 2020

It allegedly received more than half a million euros in exchange for granting permits to foreign companies to export lobster larvae and hatchlings

Indonesian authorities filed charges against the Minister of Marine Resources and Fisheries, Edhy Prabowo, on Wednesday for allegedly accepting bribes, along with fifteen other people, worth 4.8 million Indonesian rupees (580,000 euros), in exchange to grant permits to foreign companies for the export of lobster larvae and hatchlings.

Prabowo, who was arrested on Tuesday upon arrival at Jakarta International Airport from the United States, would have spent 750 million rupees (44,500 euros) on luxury items during his stay in Hawaii, said the vice president of the Commission to Eradicate Corruption of Indonesia (KPK, for its initials in Indonesian), Nawawi Pomolango.

IN BRIEF - Al Jazeera: Scottish fishing industry faces crisis over EU shipping delays (video)

Monday, January 18, 2021

The Scottish food exporting industry was promised friction-free access to European markets after Brexit.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: European aquaculture in serious losses due to Covid-19

Monday, January 18, 2021

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.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: ASC expands Think Fish Week campaign to Central Europe

Monday, January 18, 2021

Engaging with consumers on the topic of responsible aquaculture is becoming an increasingly important role for the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), which stepped up its promotional campaign efforts in the latter months of 2020, as it celebrated its 10th anniversary.

The ASC now was more than 1.6 million metric tons (MT) of aquaculture products under certification, with Norway, Chile, and Vietnam accounting for the largest volumes. In terms of products, salmon has the largest share, with just over 1 million MT certified, shrimp is in second place with 242,000 MT, and tilapia comes third, with nearly 106,000 MT certified.

Other Media | The Fish Site: How a shrimp farming 'mafia' is displacing Indian fishing communities

Monday, January 18, 2021

The increase in shrimp farming around Chilika Lake in India’s Odisha state has not only been destroying the area’s ecology but also affecting the livelihoods of several thousand fishermen.

For the past five decades, Jogi Behera has been a fisherman on Chilika Lake, the largest coastal lagoon in India and also the largest brackish water lagoon in the world.

The 60-year-old, who lives in Balipatapur, laments that his catch has been dropping with each passing year, due to illegal shrimp farming around the lake.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Scottish Fishing In Crisis

Monday, January 18, 2021

Describing the current situation as a ‘full-blown crisis,’ Scottish Seafood Association chief executive Jimmy Buchan has told the UK and Scottish governments to get a grip, and fast, ‘before severe and lasting damage is done.’

Two weeks into 2021 and with little sign of improvement, he commented that there has been a lot of direct engagement between the industry and ministers and civil servants in recent days, and plenty of soothing words about resolving ‘teething troubles.’

‘But these are not minor impediments to trade. The industry in Scotland has basically ground to a halt and businesses that employ hundreds of people in communities around our coastline are losing money. In some cases they are close to going under,’ he said.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Fishing resilent despite Covid, says EU

Monday, January 18, 2021

Sustainable fishing has helped the EU fishing fleet remain profitable in 2020 despite the challenges of the global Covid-19 pandemic, according to a report by the European Union.

The 2020 Annual Economic Report on the EU Fishing Fleet states that more sustainable fishing and lower fuel costs helped to mitigate the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic.

The European Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevicius said that the report showed that ‘sustainability pays off’. “During times of crisis, our fishing fleets must stay on the path of sustainability. It builds resilience and accelerates economic recovery,” he said.

Friday, January 15, 2021

A long-term business partnership and the ability to provide a turnkey installation are the key factors in the choice of Carsoe to design, produce and install the new complete processing plant on board Ocean Prawns’ new trawler.
