Friday, June 11, 2021

And this year he wanted to start with the calenda, the same day that June started. The bonito from the north also marks the beginning of the summer, as before the Burela festivities set the beginning of the coast. Today, all that has changed, and the eagerness to bring the first Thunnus alalunga to port has advanced the departure of the ships almost as much as the large distribution does with Christmas.

In the past few weeks there has been wide press coverage of Norway’s unilateral decision to increase its mackerel quota in excess of the shares that were previously agreed in the now expired 2014 coastal States Agreement.

Hilton Seafood UK has received an award for trialling and adopting an electric stunner for farmed whiteleg shrimp, which delivers a more humane method of slaughter than immersion in ice slurry.
The company was the winner of the best innovation category of Compassion in World Farming’s Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards, which were presented today.
Hilton Seafoods (HSF) is one of the largest distributors of fresh seafood in the UK and it supplies over 100 million vannamei shrimp a year to Tesco. Shrimp are traditionally slaughtered using ice slurry but, in a bid to improve animal welfare, in June 2020 the company trialled an Optimar electrical stunner - which had been modified for use on shrimp - at a farm in Vietnam in collaboration with Amanda Seafood.

Skretting’s parent company, Nutreco, has a 12.5 per-cent stake in Roxel Aqua, which is now changing its name to Blár.
In March, Norway’s Directorate of Fisheries Fisheries announced that it had granted Roxel Aqua support in its complaint that the concept of Octopus could not be granted development permits as it did not meet the requirement for significant innovation.
