IN BRIEF - Milko Schvartzman on '... a Southwest Atlantic fisheries management pact'

Thursday, April 25, 2024

“Everything that is preyed on at mile 201, from a biological point of view, is as if it were preyed on at mile 199, within the EEZ of Argentina”

“Argentina must work on the creation of a South Atlantic Conservation Commission. If progress is not made in regulating what is currently an environmental and human rights crime, soon we will not have species to protect because the fishing ground will have collapsed, something that has not yet happened by miracle." "Argentina is already a member of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR/CCAMLR), where it votes and approves the allocation of capture quotas within the Georgias and Sandwich Islands, which are Argentine EEZ according to the National Constitution, therefore there is no aspect "that affects the claim of sovereignty over the Malvinas that prevents the creation of a fishing conservation and regulation area in international waters, where there is no sovereignty dispute, but there is an environmental tragedy."

Mentioned Milko Schvartzman, expert in marine conservation and illegal fishing.

Other Media | Industriss Pesqueras: Opagac urges the European Union in relation to the Chinese fleet: 'The time has come to act forcefully'

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

Following the publication of the report by the Environmental Justice Foundation, EJF, on the systematic abuses committed on board the Asian country's fleet in the southwestern Indian Ocean between 2017 and 2023, the Spanish tuna fleet grouped in Opagac has asked the European Union to take action. “If the EU allows imports of fish caught by this fleet for the consumption of European citizens, it is becoming an accomplice in this type of crime,” denounces Julio Morón, managing director of Opagac. "The time has come to act decisively against a fleet supported mainly by government subsidies, whose growth and practices are uncontrolled, as the EJF report corroborates, and which, furthermore, represents a serious threat to fish stocks and coastal communities in the areas in which it operates, generally economically vulnerable and highly dependent on its fishing resources.”

New Label Rouge rules will enable bigger fish to be sold under prestigious mark

New rules have been agreed that will enable Scottish farmers to sell more prestigious ‘Label Rouge’ salmon in France and other European markets.

The French quality mark, which comes with a stringent set of standards, has been updated to allow farmers to implement modern solutions to improve salmon health and welfare while maintaining taste and quality. Changes includes the ability to export larger fish of between six and eight kilograms, paving the way for increased sales of premium salmon – particularly in the sushi sector.

IN BRIEF - Bluefin tuna from Spanish natural location, new catch coming soon

Tuesday, April 23, 2024

The wild bluefin tuna fishery in southwestern Spain, which has a 3,000-year history dating back to ancient Roman times, will soon welcome a new catch.
The large-scale emplacement has already been completed and the first captures could be seen later this month. Tokyo Seafoods Co., Ltd. (Chuo-ku, Tokyo, president: Ryusei Yamakoshi), a specialized seafood trading company with the largest purchasing share, has been involved in this site for almost 40 years.
To make Japanese consumers more aware of the rare bluefin tuna caught in the Atlantic Ocean, the company plans to actively disseminate information through social networking sites (SNS).
According to Tsuyoshi Sugiura, director of the company's tuna group, Spain's natural bluefin tuna, which is caught in fixed locations on a large scale, is said to have "exceptional natural flavor and color appearance," and is mainly used in Sushi restaurants in Japan. It is said to have strong support not only from consumers but also from some food supermarkets.

IN BRIEF - Twins together in the dock

Tuesday, April 23, 2024

STELLENDAM - The sister ships BL 936072 'Madeleine' and BL 937550 'Pax Dei II' together in the dock of Padmos in the Inner Harbor of Stellendam. 

The identical cutters under the French flag were built by main contractor Padmos and put into service at the beginning of 2021 and in the summer of 2022 by the De Boer families from Urk and Wattez from France. The skippers of both vessels are the cousins ??of the same name, Teunis de Boer. The first vessel in this series was also for the T. de Boer & Zonen family: the UK 124, also skippered by Teunis de Boer.

A joint docking was planned for next month, but now the dock occupancy has been exchanged with the UK 224, which is undergoing a major refit including repowering at Padmos.

Last week we steamed again to the French home port of Boulogne. The ships fish almost exclusively in the Channel. Due to the strong wind, the majority of the fleet stayed ashore on Monday.

IN BRIEF - Squid fishing boost for troubled fleet

Tuesday, April 23, 2024

From British and French waters in the Channel, Dutch trawl fishermen follow the squid migration towards the North Sea in the autumn. 

The UK-153 'Lub Senior' caught a fish hold fifty miles west-northwest of IJmuiden in early March. Vismagazine was informed about this new winter fishing.

On Thursday evening, March 7, the UK-153 approaches the fish auction quay in IJmuiden around 10 p.m. The depth of the impressive flyshooter (illustration) suggests a good catch.

The excellent European squid or common squid (Loligo vulgaris) was caught that week barely fifty miles west of IJmuiden. “We have more than 3,400 kilos of squid on board,” says skipper Frits Korf as the first stacked fish boxes are lifted from the fish hold onto the quay.{....]
