Other Media | aqua.cl: LATAM Cargo and the pandemic: 'Our priority, from the first moment, was to protect the supply of salmon'

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

“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.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Major Japanese sushi chain ditches human staff and launches 'contactless' outlets

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

AI, QR-codes, and non-touch screens. It’s the end of staff service for Kura Sushi.

NHK reports that the Japanese conveyer belt sushi chain Kura Sushi has launched an outlet in Tokyo, where customers don’t have to interact or talk with any staff.

In light of the COVID-19, the chain has upped sanitary measures. That means customers can order and pay on a screen, without even touching it, due to sensors that can read finger movements. Furthermore, AI cameras pick up the number of plates consumed.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Unlikely champions of aquaculture: Alexandra Cousteau

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

The scion of the Cousteau dynasty discusses the benefits of restorative aquaculture, the importance of connecting consumers with aquatic farmers and her new initiative, Oceans 2050.

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.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: The gold standard of plant-based ‘seafood’

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

A new certification programme has been created for “seafood” created entirely from plants.

The certification is the result of cooperation between the World Sustainability Organisation (WSO) and the Good Food Institute (GFI) and will be part of the WSO’s Friend of the Sea programme under a new “Golden Standard”.

It allows plant-seafood companies to certify products according to sustainable criteria of the WSO’s Friend of the Earth agricultural standards. Plant-based meat products will receive a comparable standard from Fried of the Earth.

Other Media | FiskerForum: KFO: UK can't have its cake and eat it

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

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.
