IN BRIEF - Japan Eyes Tighter Bluefin Tuna Catch Management

JAPAN
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

Tokyo (Jiji Press)--Japan's Fisheries Agency is planning to oblige fishery operators to report the number of Pacific bluefin tuna they catch while toughening penalties for a breach of the obligation to prevent illegal fishing.

The agency thinks it necessary to strengthen the management of tuna in response to the revelation in 2021 of the illegal distribution of bluefin tuna caught off Oma, Aomori Prefecture, northeastern Japan.

On Tuesday, the agency obtained approval of draft legislation needed to take the measures at a meeting of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. It hopes that the legislation will be enacted during the current parliamentary session ending in June.

The reporting rule will target bluefin tuna weighing 30 kilograms or over. Fishery operators will be obliged to report the exact number of such bluefin tuna caught to local governments, in addition to the total catch volume as currently required.

Fishery operators will also be obliged to create and keep records of the names of fishing vessels, the dates of landing, and the weight of each fish.

IN BRIEF - Putin signed a law accelerating the receipt of tax deductions for fishermen

RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law allowing for faster receipt of tax deductions for fees for the use of aquatic biological resources.

Changes to the Tax Code of the Russian Federation will make it possible to apply the deduction not a year after the development and processing of aquatic biological resources, but after the extraction or catching of aquatic biological resources and the production of products with high added value from them. At the same time, funds within the established amount of the deduction will be retained in the circulation of fish producers - payers of the collection.

Vladimir Putin and Sergei Mitin

“Companies could receive such a deduction only in the third year after processing the catch. Now this period will be shortened. It will be possible to apply for the deduction based on the results of the extraction and processing of biological resources and apply it when applying for the next permits. The transfer of unused deductions to the next year also continues,” Sergei Mitin, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Agricultural and Food Policy and Environmental Management, commented on the document.

In addition, restrictions on the one-time use of the deduction within 2 years by fee payers are eliminated. And the period for applying the deduction is 2 calendar years, according to the new law.
