IN BRIEF - Why a long-established sushi restaurant bought MSC certified bluefin tuna

Monday, December 21, 2020

Matsuno Sushi, a long-established high-class sushi restaurant on the Omori coast in Tokyo, was the first to purchase this tuna, which was sold at a high price of 6800 yen per kilo.

This fall, the first MSC-certified "Pacific bluefin tuna" was shipped to the Toyosu market →

Yoshinori Tezuka, the young manager of the restaurant, is one of the young sushi chefs who is also considered abroad as a 'reference' as a sushi chef

"In the future, considering the world market, I think it is important for old Japanese sushi restaurants that have a culture of eating raw fish to be aware of sustainability."

Friday, December 18, 2020

Negotiations for the UK's exit from the EU

The European Parliament warns that it will not vote this month on any agreement signed after the 21st

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Atlantic, North Sea, Mediterranean, and Black Sea fishing opportunities agreed to for 2021

Friday, December 18, 2020

Agreements on next year’s catch limits for more than 200 commercial fish stocks in the Atlantic, North Sea, Mediterranean, and the Black Sea have been reached by European Union fisheries ministers following two days of intense negotiation at the annual Agrifish Council meeting.

As more than 100 of the stocks in the Atlantic and North Sea have historically been co-managed with the United Kingdom, and given the ongoing E.U.-U.K. negotiations on their future relationship, ministers agreed to set provisional quotas for the fish stocks shared with Britain.

The provisional quotas are designed to ensure the continuation of sustainable fishing in the concerned areas until consultations with the U.K. are concluded, the European Council said.
