Other Media | EuropaAzul: «The closure of fishing zones is going to generate problems of cohabitation of fleets»

Monday, September 26, 2022

The closure measure of the 87 fishing zones is going to generate more problems than those relating to the bottom trawling fleets and others to which the measure is being applied. In fact, the shipowners of Ondarroa have described the closure of vulnerable marine ecosystems (VME, in English) as a "hammer blow", as ordered by the EU Commission. According to Kiko Marin, from the Ondarroa Producers Organization, «a good part of the areas that are closed are in the cliffs (usual fishing areas for fixed gear vessels, such as longliners and flyers.

IN BRIEF - In Russia they propose to ban the production of canned fish

Tuesday, December 05, 2023

The Fish Union came up with a proposal to ban the production of canned fish according to technical specifications (TU), which are subject to GOST standards in the country.

These are, for example, sprats in oil or natural saury. This initiative was announced during an open meeting of representatives of Rosselkhoznadzor and the fishing community, which the publication “Veterinary and Life” organized at the site of the VII International Fishery Forum in St. Petersburg.

Sergei Gudkov, head of the consumer market development department of the Fish Union, began his speech with a problem: Russians eat little fish, and the level of its consumption is declining. According to the Fishing Union, fish consumption in Russia has decreased by 30% since 2013. “No other food product has undergone such critical changes, and we attribute this to two reasons,” said Sergei Gudkov. One of them is the increase in the cost of fish raw materials, which is higher than inflation, in contrast to meat and dairy products. But this is not the main reason for the sharp decline in fish consumption, the speaker noted. “We came to the conclusion that the reduction in consumption is most influenced by the quality of products,” said a representative of the union.

IIN BRIEF - Peru’s anchovy quota is nearly half fulfilled, but El Niño begins to affect subsequent fishing

Monday, December 04, 2023

Peru is one month into its second anchovy fishing season. As of November 20, a total of 802,346 tons had been caught in the central and northern regions, accounting for 48% of the total quota (1.68 million tons). Industry insiders remain cautiously optimistic about the remaining 52% quota.

Only 27 days into the fishing season, a warm "Kelvin wave" appeared in the fishing area, affecting the normal operations of fishing vessels.

The Peruvian National Marine and Hydrological Service (ENFEN) stated that the intensity of El Niño events has decreased recently, but it still has a certain impact. As summer approaches, changing ocean conditions are causing industry insiders to worry about remaining quotas. In addition to the Kelvin wave problem, rising seawater salinity in Peruvian waters has also slowed down fishing progress.

In Peru, fishmeal prices remain relatively high, while fish oil prices, which had hit record highs earlier this year, edged further higher due to low production. Currently, the price of CIF China's special-grade fishmeal is US$2,150/ton, the asking price of high-quality fishmeal is US$2,100/ton, and the price of standard-grade fishmeal is US$1,820/ton. Fish oil prices have reached new highs, with recent trade prices at $9,600/ton.

The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food has announced the closure of the sardine fishing campaign, effective from 00:00, Friday 01 December 2023, for the purse seine fleet in the Gulf of Cadiz and the Northwest Cantabrian fleets using highly selective sardine-directed gear, such as “racú” and “piobardeira.” The campaign concludes with a final quota of 22,582 tonnes, the highest in recent years.

The entire sardine-dedicated fleet successfully completed the authorised fishing period, thanks to the optimisation mechanism implemented since October 15. This mechanism maximised efficiency in quota utilisation by distributing the remaining unconsumed quotas to the entire fleet.[...]

Monday, December 04, 2023

Norway and the EU have signed a new seafood deal which is expected to lead to an increase in salmon trade.

Much of the deal simply confirms a continuation of the current arrangement, but the big winners are likely to be Norway’s salmon farmers.

Norway’s new Fisheries Minister Cecilie Myrseth said that the EU remains her country’s most important market for seafood, adding that several duty free quotas for important products would continue but the new agreement would also open new quotas for processed and smoked salmon and frozen shelled prawns.
