Wednesday, June 07, 2023

Earlier this year, Frosta, a leading German manufacturer of frozen products, launched NPD vegan fish fingers across major German retailers, after three years of development.

Additionally, despite the overall frozen fish market sharply declining sales, Frosta’s fish sticks were “the darlings of the public,” becoming an increasingly popular choice among consumers, reported the company.

IN BRIEF - Lawsuit alleging ex-deputy falsified arrest report settled for $250K

Tuesday, June 06, 2023

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — A lawsuit filed by a Washington oyster farmer accusing a former county deputy of falsifying an arrest report and urging a person to lie during a domestic-violence investigation has been settled for $250,000.

Gerardo Rodarte, the owner of Samish Gold Seafoods, sued Skagit County and former deputy Joseph Gutierrez in 2020, after Rodarte was acquitted by a jury of domestic-violence assault charges, The Seattle Times reported.

The charges were based on the deputy’s sworn statement and reports. Court documents show Gutierrez, who was fired in 2018 over allegations of having sex while on duty and failing to aid other officers during a jail escape, refused to testify at trial.

OTHER MEDIA | The Fishing Daily - Faroe Islands announce restrictions on Russian fishing vessels

Tuesday, June 06, 2023

The Faroe Islands will implement comprehensive restrictions on access for Russian fishing vessels to Faroese ports, the island’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Industry and Trade has announced.

In a statement the Ministry said:

“The National Government intends to tighten restrictive measures against Russia. This will be done, among other things, by putting in place comprehensive restrictions on the access of Russian fishing vessels to Faroese ports. This means that the ports will be blocked for all activities that are outside the fishing agreement between the Faroe Islands and Russia. This is expected to limit Russian activity in Faroese ports to around 70 percent compared to what it has been in the last year.”

Although the restrictions will be in place, this means that the Faroe Islands will continue to be a central hub for transhipment and transhipment of the majority of the Russian catch of fish in the North Atlantic.

IN BRIEF - ‘They are stealing what should be ours’: Chinese trawlers are emptying West African fishing grounds

Monday, June 05, 2023

As China’s global fishing net widens, artisanal fishermen off the coast of Ghana see their catches plummet and go to bed hungry

The wooden canoe is painted with scriptures. They’re meant to bring good fortune to the craft’s fishermen and protect against the dangers of the Atlantic – sky-high ocean waves, creatures of the deep and, increasingly, industrial Chinese trawlers.

“Colleagues have drowned when their canoes have capsized in the wake of trawlers. But the Chinese don’t care,” says Samuel Otoo, one of the canoe’s two crewmen.

In the early hours of the morning, before the heat begins to press, the fishermen set off from Jamestown, a small port outside Ghana’s capital, Accra. They return at 3pm in one piece, having encountered several trawlers, but the fishermen fear their days in the business are numbered.

This is because the Chinese vessels, far superior in size and capability than the artisanal fishermen of Ghana, are not only causing capsizes and deliberately destroying the nets of rival boats – they’re also bleeding the ocean dry of its fish.

IN BRIEF - Japan Govt Calls for Boosting Food Security for Seafood Goods

Monday, June 05, 2023

Tokyo, (Jiji Press)--A Japanese government annual report on Friday underlined the importance of strengthening food security for fishery products amid growing risks triggered by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The fishery industry white paper noted the risk of Japan's stable supplies of fishery products being jeopardized due to soaring import prices of such goods and related production materials in the wake of recent developments in international society.

Japan's imports of fishery products from the top five countries accounted for over 50 pct of its overall imports of such goods in 2021, the report said, pointing out that the high dependence on a few specific nations is a challenge for Japan.

Russia was the third-largest exporter of fishery products to Japan in 2021, before the start of the aggression of Ukraine in February 2022.

Among fishery products consumed in Japan, some 40 pct of cod roe and salmon roe, and about 30 pct of sea urchin were from Russia.

IN BRIEF - Federal and Queensland governments promise a gillnet-free Great Barrier Reef by 2027

Monday, June 05, 2023

Gillnets are set to be completely banned from the Great Barrier Reef by mid-2027, the federal and Queensland governments have jointly announced.

The fishing practice has been identified as a significant danger to multiple threatened and protected marine species, including dugongs, dolphins, turtles and some sharks.

The state and federal governments announced more than $160 million in funding to reduce high-risk fishing activities around the Great Barrier Reef, including net fishing.

There are about 240 gillnet licenses on the east coast, with about half of those in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

"The removal of gillnets in net-free zones on the reef has already helped boost local fish populations," federal environment minister Tanya Plibersek said in a statement.
