Other Media | SeafoodSource: New FISH Standard for Crew offers labor certification for global fishing vessels

Thursday, January 07, 2021

A new, accredited third-party certification program, the FISH Standard for Crew, seeks to ensure that fish sold all around the world is harvested by crews who are ethically hired, treated with respect, paid properly, and allowed fair access to address grievance.

Developed by a diverse group of experts in fish harvesting, with added insight from various labor non-profit organizations, the voluntary and independent standard will be open to wild-capture harvesters of all sizes. Its scope is built upon four pillars represented by the name "FISH": fairness, integrity, safety, and health.

An 11-person board of directors currently oversees the FISH initiative, with Brim Chief Human Resources Officer Fridrik Fridriksson serving as chair.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Scottish Seafood Association Statement on seafood export delays

Thursday, January 07, 2021

Jimmy Buchan, chief executive of the Scottish Seafood Association, said he was extremely disappointed that just a few days into 2021 his members who export to the EU were being hit by unnecessary delays.

“Trucks laden with fresh seafood are being held up in central Scotland due to problems with customs barcodes and lack of veterinary service capacity. Instead of representative samples being removed from trucks and checked, entire trailers are being emptied so that every box and label can be checked.

“Combined with computer problems on both sides of the English Channel, this is a worrying sign for the days and weeks ahead when the flow of produce will get much greater.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Can drones help to reduce oyster mortality?

Thursday, January 07, 2021

A $1 million project that aims reduces losses in the shellfish aquaculture industry through the use of unmanned vehicles is underway at North Carolina State University.

The researchers plan to use small fleets of unmanned vehicles to monitor water quality in areas that are difficult and dangerous for people to access.

It’s a step, they say, that could help the state’s shellfish farming sector grow into a $100-million-a-year industry by 2030.

The researchers say the project will provide valuable data to inform management decisions that are key to unlocking sustainable growth of nearshore production of shellfish in North Carolina and beyond.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: At 790 euros per kilo of bluefin tuna in the first auction of the year in Tokyo

Wednesday, January 06, 2021

165,000 euros were paid for one of 208 kilos, very little compared to the 1.5 million paid a year ago for another of 276 kilos

Not an auction as mediatic as the first of the year in Tokyo (Japan) has been spared the impact of the pandemic. This Tuesday, around 165,000 euros have been paid at the Toyosu fish market for a 208 kg bluefin tuna, at 790 per kilo, reports the Efe agency. Although for common humans it is still an exorbitant price, in that market it is very little compared to the 1.5 million euros paid a year ago for a 276 kilos copy, at 5,434 euros per kilo.
