Otros Medios | EuropaAzul: La industria de harina de pescado arrasa con las especies del banco canario-sahariano

Thursday, October 08, 2020

La vida de los pescadores del llamado banco pesquero canario-sahariano, uno de los más productivos del planeta gracias a la corriente fría de las Islas Canarias que produce afloramientos de aguas profundas muy ricos en nutrientes para una gran diversidad de pesca, principalmente cefalópodos, está en peligro debido a la sobrexplotación de especies para su utilización como harina. En pocos años, esta actividad ha entrado en declive a causa de la industrialización y la explotación intensiva de la pesca por flotas de otros continentes.

Other Media | aqua.cl: They seek to regain market: SalmonChile partners activate marketing campaign in China

Wednesday, October 07, 2020

After the start of the health crisis, imports in the Asian country fell sharply due to the possibility of contagion from Covid-19. Today, this situation has been changing gradually, but there are still resentments about products from other nations. For this reason, SalmonChile and its associated companies created a communication campaign aimed at reassuring and re-enchanting the Chinese consumer.

Since the beginning of the health emergency, the Chilean salmon industry has been concerned about its exports to the more than 100 markets where this product is marketed.

In this scenario, the first destination that caused concern in our country was China, where Covid-19 originated, where imports fell sharply due to the attempt to contain the spread of the virus.

Other Media | FiskerForum:MSC: No agreement– No certification

Tuesday, October 06, 2020

North Atlantic fisheries for Atlanto-Scandian herring are threatened with the loss of crucial MSC certification due to what the MSC sees as longstanding failures to reach international agreement on catch levels.

The MSC’s warning has been issued ahead of national representatives coming together this month to discuss the division of next year’s fishery, which follows ICES advice for 2021 North Atlantic pelagic fisheries that was published recently.

‘Four MSC-certified Atlanto-Scandian herring fisheries in the Northeast Atlantic are at a high risk of losing their MSC certificates on 30th December 2020, due to lack of an international agreement on how to manage catch levels between different nations,’ the MSC states.
