Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Anasol anticipates the disappearance of the 'great sun' fleet in case Europe gives in to the United Kingdom

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

The fleet prefers a "no agreement" rather than agreeing to a pact like the one that Brussels would have proposed at the last minute

Anasol, the Association of Shipowners of Fishing Vessels in the Gran Sol -integrated in ARVI, the Cooperative of Shipowners of Vigo- has also wanted to make clear its concern about the possibility that Europe will finally give in to the interests of the United Kingdom in fisheries in the last section of the negotiation. The organization, directly affected by the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU, regrets that after "four years of negotiations, a long period maintaining a unitary position defended by the negotiator Barnier", the entry into play of the Commission may involve "the sacrifice of the community fishing fleet ”.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Price hike just before the Christmas weekend

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

Differentiated salmon prices in the last short week before Christmas. The highest price is achieved by the fish that is to be delivered on Christmas Eve and the first day of Christmas.

With only three packing days next week, the supply side will be noticeably tightened. This means, as usual, increased salmon prices for the Christmas celebration.

“A lot of fish will be packed this weekend. It is around 40 kroner (EUR 3.8). But packing on Tuesday and especially Wednesday, is more popular, so then it will be more expensive. So it might be a two or three price system. 42 kroner (EUR 4.0) on Tuesday, and Wednesday 44-45 kroner (EUR 4.2-4.5) for 3+ kg.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Coronavirus lorry ban hits UK seafood exporters

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

The port of Dover has been closed to lorries and ferry passengers following a travel ban imposed by the French government on Sunday. The ban, in response to a surge in Covid-19 cases associated with a new strain of the virus, has hit seafood exports from the UK.

The ban applies to all ferry and Eurotunnel passengers, and “accompanied freight” – that is, all roll-on, roll-off lorries, the main form of transport for all fresh produce. Only unaccompanied freight – containers – is still entering and leaving the UK.

Kent Police have put Operation Stack in place to manage queued lorries, and part of the M20 motorway in Kent has been closed.
