Wednesday, July 08, 2020
Despite the turbulent economic climate, Netherlands-based The Kingfish Company is expanding - and charting new waters in the USA.
While many producers of high-end seafood have struggled under the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, The Kingfish Company – the new corporate identity for Netherlands-based Kingfish Zeeland, which recently embarked on an ambitious international expansion programme – is emerging from it in fine fettle.
Not only is the yellowtail kingfish producer on schedule and on budget with the construction of its Netherlands RAS expansion (which will double its current capacity), it has also just submitted its first permit notice for the construction of a 6,000-to-8,000-tonne RAS in Maine, USA. The company is on target to hit its long-term 20,000-tonne production goal across its EU and US sites. CEO Ohad Maiman explains to The Fish Site that it’s been an interesting journey.

The European Commission's main priority at the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) meeting was to address how to manage the yellowfin tuna population in the Indian Ocean through the adoption of a new management measure for aggregating devices. of drifting fish (DCP), as well as approving an action to reduce the catch of skipjack tuna. In this sense, the EU regrets that the IOTC "has not been able to agree on any of these aspects" and considers that "an opportunity for the sustainable management of the Indian Ocean fisheries has been lost".

The Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC), which held its annual meeting from 16 to 20 May, 2022, is once again being criticized by ocean-focused non-governmental organizations, which are claiming it failed to take sufficient action to conserve tuna stocks.
