Othe Media | SeafoodSource: ASMI plans for smaller budget in 2021

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

The budget for the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) will be smaller for the 2021 fiscal year, though it won’t be due to cuts made as a result of the coronavirus. Rather, the natural and gradual reduction in funding is a result of how the group managed the spending of a grant it received in 2019, ASMI said.

Last year, ASMI received USD 7.5 million (EUR 6.64 million) from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Foreign Agriculture Service’s Agricultural Trade Promotion program. The funding was intended to decrease the negative effects of international trade barriers and, as a result, the 2020 fiscal year was ASMI’s highest budget year since 2016.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Mayors mutiny over salmon tax

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

THE mayors of at least 70 local municipalities along the Norwegian coast are demanding a ‘fair share’ of any new salmon tax imposed on the country’s aquaculture industry.

The government has announced proposals for a tax of NOK O.40 (40 øre or cents) per kilogramme on salmon, trout and rainbow trout which is expected to produce annual revenues of at least a billion kroner (£85 million) for fish farming communities which they maintain could produce considerably less income than what they receive under the present Aquaculture Fund. Then they were being paid up to 85 per cent of revenues from sales and auction fees, which they claim could drop down to 25 per cent under the new proposals. ‘This would represent a significant reduction and we cannot accept that,’ they say, suggesting their share should be at least 60 per cent.

Other Media | FiskerForum: VÓNIN’S ZENITH reaches for height

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Vónin’s new groundfish trawl has already shown some promising results on saithe, haddock and redfish.

Vónin’s Bacalao trawls have been a longstanding part of the company’s gear inventory, and while the original design has been refined and optimised over the years as new materials and technology have become available, the basic Bacalao design has remained in place.

Instead of another round of upgrading this tried-and-tested trawl design to achieve more headline height, Vónin’s gear designers have gone for something new and have come up with the Zenith trawl after a process of simulation, flume tank testing and sea trials with the full-scale prototype of the new trawl.

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Trump vows to escalate lobster trade war with EU, Canada, China

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

At a fisheries roundtable discussion in Bangor, Maine, U.S.A., on 5 June, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a proclamation to allow commercial fishing in the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. The change falls short of eliminating the monument entirely, and does not lift a prohibition on gas and oil drilling in the area, but rather is "taking down a no-fishing sign," according to Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt, who was at the table for the discussion.

President Barack Obama created the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts monument in 2016. President George W. Bush was the first to apply the act to the seafloor, when he declared the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument in Hawaii in 2006.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Aquaculture has improved food security, says UN

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Aquaculture has expanded fish availability to regions and countries with otherwise limited or no access to the farmed species, often at cheaper prices, leading to improved nutrition and food security.

That’s one of the conclusions in the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report, The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, published today.

In his foreword to the report, FAO director-general Qu Dongyu writes that since 2015 the numbers of undernourished and malnourished people have been growing, and innovative solutions were required to produce more food, ensure access to it, and improve nutrition.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Vietnam endorses free trade agreement with EU

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Lawmakers in Vietnam’s National Assembly on 8 June have approved a decision to create a free trade deal with the European Union that is expected to open a way for more seafood products to flow into the E.U.

The European Parliament endorsed the deal with Vietnam on 12 February and the European Council approved it on 30 March.
