Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Danish fleet creates an ‘app’ to record the catch of protected species

Saturday, May 09, 2020

The Danish Fisheries Association (DF, for its Danish acronym) has announced the creation of a mobile 'app' that fishermen can install on their phones to record the catch of protected species. To date, an electronic journal was used for this registration, which reported greater problems for operations. The application will record the position of the boat and will have the possibility to send images.

This initiative has been funded by MSC through its fund, and will also be used by fisheries organizations in Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany.

"New technology can help promote sustainability, which is so important to Danish fisheries. As fishermen, we take care of nature, most Danish fishing is MSC certified, and the app is our new green initiative, ”says Kenn Skau Fischer, director of the Danish Fisheries Association.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: As fishing moratorium kicks in, China looks for ways out of coronavirus slump

Saturday, May 09, 2020

May Day may be a traditional Chinese holiday to mark global proletarian solidarity, but it’s also become an important date for the country’s seafood traders and importers. The first of May is the day that the country’s domestic waters are closed to fishing until 1 September.

The annual moratorium, enforced more zealously every year, has led to a surge in demand for replacements for favorites like croaker, ribbonfish, mackerel, and turbot. The moratorium has been foreshadowed this year with public trials of those caught illegally fishing in the Yangtze, which was closed to fishing this year for 10 years.

Despite the shutdown of domestic fishing creating an opening in the market, imports of seafood into China remain depressed as a result – both directly and indirectly – of the coronavirus. Seafood imports dropped 28 percent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2020 as social distancing efforts and tighter spending from consumers over economic concerns have tamped down seafood-buying in China.

Friday, May 08, 2020

Covington, WA--The Northwest Aquaculture Alliance (NWAA) has issued an opinion piece regarding the recent lawsuit against NOAA by the Wild Fish Conservancy (WFC) that will effectively prevent Chinook salmon trolling in Southeast Alaska effective July 1, 2020.
