In recent days, many media have echoed a story that 'grossly mode' came to headline that microplastics had been found in aquaculture sea bream and sea bass. A very simple and absolutely erroneous view if one does not go further, is that those microplastics "found" in farmed sea bream and sea bass and analyzed in a scientific study published by ULL researchers in the journal Polymers, refer to microplastics found in the gastrointestinal tract of these species (which is discarded for consumption), and in no case in the muscle or skin of the fish, and therefore without any risk to the consumer.

As the push of offshore wind farm surveys continue, Irish fishermen have been reminded that they are under no legal obligation to move their fishing gear unless they wish to do so and are compensated for their actions.
The reminder comes from Cork-based maritime solicitor Dermot Conway of Conway Solicitors, following his engagement by fishermen who developed concerns over information they were receiving regarding proposed offshore wind farm developments.
The Fishing Daily contacted Mr Conway after we were approached by a vessel owner in the area who said that were being ordered to move off their fishing grounds for offshore windfarm surveys. Source: The Fishing Daily | Read the full article here
A Norwegian company that plans to farm mountain trout – a variant of brown trout – on land has received positive feedback from authorities.

The shipowners' group Europeche rejects the accusation of "alleged illegal fishing by EU vessels does not make sense in light of last week's Compliance Committee at CAOI demonstrating the compliance of our fleet". According to the shipowners, "the report uses unreliable data based on estimates and assumptions to unfairly accuse the EU tuna fleet of non-compliance with the rules."
As negotiations on tuna stocks advance at a forced pace at the 26th session of the IOTC, one country has referred to the "Fishing outside the lines" report, mainly accusing EU fleets of illegal fishing
The NGO ClientEarth continues its legal process to challenge the "unsustainable fishing limits agreed between the EU and the UK for 2022". According to the organization, the parties allowed fishermen to catch fish populations that have the "zero catch" recommendation from scientists to try to recover them from extinction. Thus, ClientEarth's lawyers have submitted a request for the Council of Fisheries Ministers of the EU to review its decision and if it refuses to modify it, they will ask the Court of Justice of the EU to rule.
