Other Media | WorldFishing: Short Herring season comes to an end.

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Brim’s pelagic vessels have finished this season’s fishing for Atlanto-Scandian herring.

The Venus and Víkingur are both now in Reykjavík, ready for their next assignment which could be Icelandic summer-spawning herring or blue whiting.

Bergur Einarsson, skipper of Venus, said that the Atlanto-Scandian herring season had been short and sharp. ‘Fishing went very well and there was a lot of herring there,” he said. “Fishing grounds were no more than 60 to 80 nautical miles from Vopnafjörður. The weather was fine and the herring in top condition, and we can say that production ashore dictated how quickly we fished.

Monday, October 12, 2020

These bivalves and other organisms like false barnacles and algae endanger the cables that carry electricity to the ground.

Neither activists nor fishermen, the great threat that looms over the future of wind energy is a small bivalve that delights the Galicians: the mussel. This mollusk that colonizes the rafts of the Rías Baixas is the worst enemy to be faced. facing the wind industry. The sector aims to cover half of Europe's electricity needs in the medium term. Of course, to achieve this they will have to find a formula to prevent the cable runs of the platforms that support the wind turbines from becoming mussel-growing areas.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: The European Commission and the United Kingdom exhaust this week the last possibilities according to Brexit

Monday, October 12, 2020

The European Commission meets this Thursday and Friday with Brexit as one of the central topics of the conversation and with fishing as the central axis of negotiations that still have not reached port.

The negotiations focus the meeting of the European Council this Thursday, a few weeks before the distribution of fishing quotas. The European Union and the United Kingdom are now facing the final stretch of the negotiations for an agreement to exit the British.

Time is running out and the sector faces in the short term the period in which the member states must focus their efforts on negotiating the TACs and quotas for next 2021, so the Vigo fishing is already appealing to establish a new transitional period as an option more viable in 2021 without any agreement.
