“During the pandemic we implemented a change that will be extremely positive for our salmon customers. It is a new operating model through which all salmon exported by LATAM Cargo is now exclusively served at Andesur Cargo. This will allow us to provide you with greater benefits in terms of service, quality and efficiency ”, is one of the points highlighted by the commercial manager of the company in Chile.
The greatest impact that all airlines worldwide have experienced has been the decrease in capacity as a result of the restriction to operate passenger flights. To put this in perspective, only during the month of October the LATAM Group plans to operate between 24% and 26% of its capacity compared to the same period in 2019.

What inspired you to devote your life to the wellbeing of the oceans?
I probably have a bit of a unique perspective in the ocean space, because I've literally grown up in it. I could swim before I could walk and learned to dive with scuba from my grandfather, Jacques Cousteau, at the age of seven.

The UK cannot expect to retain the privileges of membership while blocking its erstwhile European colleagues from its waters, and doubling its catch, according to Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation (KFO) CEO Seán O’Donoghue, who said it would be rank hypocrisy for the UK to expect to slam the door and keep the gains it enjoyed while part of the EU.
He commented that the complexity of moulding Britain’s future relationship with the EU is nowhere more evident than in fisheries, and is adamant that the UK should no longer benefit from the additional fishing opportunities it was granted after joining the EEC in 1973, particularly when the total allowable catches and quotas were decided in the early eighties.
