Thursday, May 19, 2022

The Shtandart, a replica of the 18th-century frigate of Russian Tsar Peter I the Great, has been anchored since this afternoon in the Baiona marina. Its presence under the Russian flag has not gone unnoticed in the town due to misgivings about the invasion of Ukraine and the restrictions that have been imposed, also in maritime traffic, but it is not the first time that this 34.5-meter sailboat of length by 6.9 meters of breadth anchors in the estuary. She is a ship that acts as a school ship, in which a crew made up of students and sailors of different nationalities navigates.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Approved the new Fisheries Law: the Government's commitment to triple sustainability

Thursday, May 19, 2022

The Government's star measure in fisheries matters, in development since 2020, has materialized. The Council of Ministers has approved the draft Law on Sustainable Fishing and Fisheries Research that will update the regulation in force since 2001 with the aim of strengthening the triple, economic, social and environmental sustainability of fishing in Spain. The norm establishes new criteria for the distribution of quotas in order to optimize their use; commitment to strengthening scientific knowledge through the application of an ecosystem approach; and establish new measures of a social nature aimed at groups such as rederas and shellfish gatherers, as some of the key measures.

Other Media | Ipac: Five UN agencies will seek to transform food systems with the intention of improving health, nutrition

Thursday, May 19, 2022

Every year, unhealthy diets cause eleven million deaths and an additional 420,000 people die from unhealthy foods.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: European exporters avoiding China due to pricing, access problems

Thursday, May 19, 2022

There are signs that European exporters are turning away from the Chinese market, according to numerous seafood executives interviewed at the 2022 Seafood Expo Global in Barcelona, Spain in late April.
