Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: Mercamadrid remains closed but hopes to open tomorrow

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

The Filomena snowstorm, which since Friday has seriously affected a large part of mainland Spain with consequences of special consideration for the capital, Madrid, has forced Mercamadrid's activity to close. The central market in Madrid, the main one in Spain in terms of wholesale fish marketing, did not open on Saturday and it will not open on Monday either. Its reopening is expected for tomorrow, Tuesday, after the work of the UME (Military Emergency Unit) during the weekend has allowed the accesses as well as internal roads of the market to be cleared of snow.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: The Canary Islands are uncertain about the low tuna quotas and prices

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

The catch limitations for the Canary Islands fleet are of concern to the islands' fishing sector. The situation worries since 35 pole-and-line tuna vessels have assigned 2,328 tonnes for this year. The artisanal fleet, which has included vessels that can only fish tuna, have given it 236,258 kilos: "It is a tactic that was done with good intention, but it has gone wrong and there are many families affected," says the president of IslaTuna

The year of the start of the coronavirus pandemic exposed Canarian professional fishing to subsist by selling their products at low prices. In 2021, the scenario for one of the activities considered essential does not improve and is surrounded by uncertainty.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Concern in the European Parliament about the impact that the 'postbrexit' agreement will have on the fishing fleet

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

The Commission reassures Parliament by explaining that the European fleet may continue to fish in British waters beyond 2026

MEPs from different political groups on Monday showed their concern about the agreement on fisheries reached between the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom last December and asked Brussels for clarification on many of its points.

In the first debate held in the European Parliament on this pact, which took place in the Fisheries Committee, the deputies valued that the parties reached an agreement on December 24 on their future relationship, but insisted that the provisions on fishing do not seem guarantee the security and stability that the European fishing sector needs.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Scottish salmon producers urge government to address Brexit border disruptions

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Scotland’s salmon sector is calling on the U.K. government to help resolve delays to exports destined for E.U. markets following the introduction of the new border rules established in a Christmas Eve agreement, with implementation beginning on 1 January, 2021.

According to the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO), dozens of truckloads of fish have failed to leave Scotland on time since the full Brexit regulations came into force, with confusion over paperwork, the extra documentation needed, and IT problems all contributing to the delays and hold-ups.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The ‘Brexit’ lives its first conflict in fishing: an Irish fishing boat is intercepted by the Scottish Navy

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

It only took 8 days in 2021 for the first fishing conflict as a result of ‘Brexit’. The Royal Scottish Navy reportedly intercepted an Irish fishing vessel operating in the vicinity of Rockall's rock. This islet, 27 meters wide, is located on the limits of the British EEZ and its sovereignty is disputed by the United Kingdom, Ireland (which does not recognize British sovereignty), the Faroe Islands and Iceland due to the importance of their fishing bank.

“Ireland's Foreign and Agriculture, Food and Marine Ministers are fully aware of the interactions between an Irish fishing vessel and a Marine Scotland patrol vessel in recent days.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Fishing vessels help with krill surveys

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

The Association of Responsible Krill Fishing Companies (ARK) is using fishing vessels to monitor the status of the krill population around South Georgia.

When the seas around Antarctica freeze, the krill fishing fleet seeks the open waters around South Georgia to continue its operations. To protect the rich fauna in the region, this winter fishery is highly regulated, incorporating a precautionary quota, use of marine mammal exclusion devices, scientific observers and a 30km no-take protection zone around the island.

The British Antarctic Survey conducts annual at-sea surveys for krill, as well as studies on the foraging behaviour and breeding performance of land-based marine predators.
