Other Media | The Fish Site: Why Europe should be taking seaweed aquaculture seriously

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, January 20, 2021

How and why seaweed aquaculture should be promoted in Europe is the subject of a new recommendation from the EU’s Aquaculture Advisory Council.

There is a growing appreciation of the benefits – social, economic and environmental – that seaweed aquaculture can bring about and the new publication sets these out clearly and concisely.

Increased seaweed cultivation in EU waters gives substantial potential for a new source of biomass for food, feed and industrial uses. In addition, the production process provides relevant ecosystem services, such as nutrient and carbon sinks and habitats for marine microlife and fish reproduction.

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Minister for the Marine, Charlie McConalogue has said that he will be fighting tooth and nail at the European Fisheries Council meeting to get the best deal possible for Irish fishermen in the wake of a poor Brexit agreement for the fishing industry.

Speaking on the Donegal based Highland Radio Nine-til-Noon Show, he told presenter Greg Hughes that he was not happy that Ireland had lost fishing quota but insisted that it was better than the situation where there could have been a no deal.  He said:

“I had worked very closely, and the government had worked very closely with the fishing industry right throughout the process of the negotiations in terms of putting it at very strong national approach to both working with their European counterparts.

Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: 100% deforestation-free Brazilian soybeans for the European salmon industry

BRAZIL
Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Brazilian soybean suppliers for the salmon industry, CJ Selecta, Caramuru and Imcopa / Cervejaria Petrópolis, will implement a 100% deforestation-free soy value chain. It is a "bold and historic" commitment that sets a new benchmark for sustainable supply chains and is in stark contrast to the large Brazilian soy traders, Mowi explains on his website. The measure affects all seeds that have been planted since August 2020.

As a result of the measure, the majority of the global farmed salmon industry, including the entire European salmon sector, will source soybeans from Brazilian suppliers whose soy value chains are 100 percent free from deforestation and conversion.
