Hull-based fishing company UK Fisheries fears that a lack of fisheries deals with Norway, Greenland, Faroes will scupper the fleet.
‘The EU deal is done, but for English distant waters fishing the future is anything but certain. Kirkella is tied up in Hull. Right now, we’re not supporting jobs upstream or downstream. We’re not generating wealth in the form of inward investment and UK taxes,’ a representative of the company said, and asked if the UK government will do the deals needed to keep our crews at work in 2021.
‘Does it intend to? As of now we don’t know when, or even if, we will be able to put to fish off Norway, our main fishing ground for decades.’

People of all ages – particularly young children and pregnant women – have been recommended to eat seafood at least twice a week in revised guidelines published by the United States Departments of Agriculture (USDA) and of Health and Human Services (HHS).
For the first time since the 1985 edition, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA), which are refreshed every five years, address the nutritional needs of babies and toddlers under two.
The guidelines recommend that seafood can and should be introduced to children when they are around six months old.

The Organization continues to take as an example the EU agreement with Norway
The British organization NFFO has published a statement in which it recognizes that after the association agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU “our immediate task was to stop the Government's attempts to present the result of the fishing as a famous victory” since it considers that "the UK fishing industry has again been sacrificed for other national objectives." Beyond considering fishing as the part sacrificed to achieve a commercial agreement, NFFO considers that what has angered the fishing industry has been, precisely, "the attempt to present the meager profits as a leap forward, as a state independent coastal ”.

The Xunta has approved 94 activity management programs that will incorporate 137 shellfishmen
Until 2019, shellfish workers worked with short roadmaps. At the end of each year, the work plan for the next 365 days was approved and, after these, the tasks were set for another 365. But the Consellería do Mar, in charge of giving approval to the exploitation plans, decided to change the system to have a longer-term forecast. Thus, it extended the plan from 2019 to 2020 and in 2021 it has approved its first Marisqueira Exploitation Plan for the next three years, which was published in the Official Gazette of Galicia on December 31.

A total of 99 Chinese flag vessels move off Chile, without fishing in national waters, towards the Atlantic
As it has been doing since September, the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca) continues to monitor the situation of the vessels of the Chinese fleet that caused concern over fishing operations carried out near the coasts of several South American countries, to the north of Chile.
The head of Fisheries Inspection of Sernapesca, Pablo Ortiz, delivered on December 31 the thirteenth report, noting that, according to the satellite surveillance report, 99 vessels are moving off the coast of our country, at navigation speed constant, which confirms that they are not carrying out fishing operations.
Portugal assumed the rotating presidency of the European Union (EU) on Friday, January 1, 2021, for the fourth time in its history.
The main objective it assumes is the adaptation of the Community fishing fleet and the implementation of the agreement reached with the United Kingdom by the EU. It should be remembered that the negotiation of the 2021 catches in Brussels, last December, resulted in an agreement highly criticized by the sector in recent years. The pact of the EU Fisheries Ministers lowered catches in Atlantic Iberian waters for species such as hake (-5%) or sole (-20%) and cut the days spent by Mediterranean vessels by 7.5% .
When Russian Far East fishing company Dobroflot sent its trawler Yuzhno-Morskoy to a Chinese shipyard for what was expected to be a four-month refit, nobody expected the crew to have to spend 19 months there.
Now Yuzhno-Morskoy is back in its home port, following a long battle to get the work completed and the trawler released from the Chinese shipyard.
‘It’s an example of integrity, professionalism, patience and perseverance of the entire crew,’ a spokesman for the company said, commenting that the trawler was steamed to the yard in China in the summer of 2019 for scheduled maintenance.

There are very different and contradictory ambitions motivating the key players in the current World Trade Organization negotiations on a deal that would end harmful fisheries subsidies.
Those differences will have to be squared before any deal emerges out of the talks, which have been held over more than 20 years, and which are set to resume on 18 January, 2021.
While all member states at the WTO say they’re committed to a deal on ending capacity-enhancing subsidies, China and Russia are simultaneously ramping up fleet enhancement initiatives that stand in contrast to the goals of the negotiations.
