Other Media | EuropaAzul: Post-Brexit bureaucracy chokes Scottish fisheries

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Many Scottish fishermen have stopped exports to European Union markets after the post-Brexit bureaucracy destroyed the system that used to put fresh prawns and scallops in French stores just over a day after they were harvested, according to newspaper The Globe and Mail.

Fish exporters say their businesses could become unviable after the introduction of health certificates, customs declarations and other formalities added days to their delivery times and hundreds of pounds to the cost of each load.

The business owners said they had tried to send small deliveries to France and Spain to test the new systems this week, but it took them five hours to obtain a health certificate in Scotland, a document that is required to apply for other customs formalities.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Shortage of containers makes salmon freight more expensive

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Scarcity of containers and rapidly increasing freight rates presents challenges to logistics.

Exports of frozen salmon skyrocketed after flight cargo was decimated during the coronavirus period. Chile in particular has large frozen stocks of salmon, and increasing volumes of fish must be shipped in containers to the markets in the US, Europe and Asia.

The pandemic has increased online shopping, ranging from books to toys and medical devices. Most of it is produced in factories in Asia. Asian countries produce much more than they import. Empty containers are being left in the receiving countries and the result is a precarious shortage of containers in Asia, reports the news site Dagens Næringsliv.

Other media | MundoAcuicola: They collect 240 years of climate information on the Antarctic Peninsula

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Using biomarkers, a multidisciplinary team of scientists was able to collect palaeoceanographic data from the Bransfield Strait, one of the Antarctic areas most affected by climate change.

In recent years and in an accelerated way, the Western Antarctic Peninsula has suffered several variations in its temperature. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Southern Ocean has largely absorbed the atmospheric heat generated by anthropogenic activity, the analysis of this phenomenon and how it is affecting the biodiversity present in the place is essential.

To understand the impact of environmental variables in the Southern Ocean, a multidisciplinary team of researchers carried out a long history of paleoceanographic information in the Bransfield Strait, located between the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands.

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Chile exported 7% more salmon and trout in 2020 than the year before but overall export revenue fell by 14% as prices in key markets plummeted because of the impacts of Covid-19.

In the most recent edition of Salmon Industry Commercial Outlook - produced by statistics provider DataSalmon and Fish Farming Expert’s Chilean sister publication, Salmonexpert – DataSalmon product manager Fernanda Clément says the large 2020 harvest is mainly explained by high average weights.
