IN BRIEF - Reuse of discarded PET fishing nets, completion of Japan's first resource recycling facility

JAPAN
Wednesday, May 31, 2023

The fishing net recycling facility built by the JF Tachiura Fishery Cooperative in Hirado City, Nagasaki (Chairman Shuji Kamogawa) utilizing the Ministry of the Environment's subsidized project was completed, and the opening ceremony was held on the 27th. This is the first dedicated facility in Japan to ship discarded polyester (PET) fishing nets collected from purse seine fleets, the main fishing industry of the fisheries cooperative, as recycled raw materials. We aim to establish and expand recycling, including exit strategies.

A solvent cleaning device developed by Kentec Co., Ltd. was installed at the Tateura Fishing Net Washing and Recycling Facility. To efficiently remove resin that reinforces the surface of a fishing net in order to increase the durability of the fishing net.

Toshihiko Nishikawa, general manager of the Alliance Management Department at Teijin Limited, a joint venture and a major textile manufacturer, said, "This washing process was important in order to sufficiently remove impurities and make it easier to manufacture processed products." Unlike nylon fishing nets, PET fishing nets are difficult and costly to recycle, and are mainly disposed of as industrial waste. The value as a resource was discovered by succeeding in recycling raw materials with few impurities.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Seafish Begins Formal Industry Consultation to Revise Levy Structure

UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, May 17, 2024

Seafish, the public body that supports the UK seafood industry to thrive, has started formal consultation with its levy payers and the wider seafood industry on proposals for a new levy model.  

Levy is due on the first sale of seafood, both domestically landed and imported, in the UK. It is not charged on farmed salmon, trout, and freshwater fish species because these species are excluded by primary legislation. Nor is it currently charged on canned, bottled and pouched seafood products.

IN BRIEF - China overtakes Korea in global shipbuilding competitiveness

CHINA
Thursday, May 16, 2024

China overtook Korea in overall competitiveness in the shipbuilding industry in 2023, according to the report titled “Comprehensive Competitiveness of the Shipbuilding Value Chain and New Directions for Korea’s Maritime Strategy” released by the Korea Institute for Industrial Economics and Trade (KIET) on May 13. This marked the first time that China has beaten Korea in the shipbuilding sector since 2020 when the institute began to release related reports, according to BusinessKorea.

According to the report, China’s overall competitiveness stood at 90.6 in 2023, 1.7 points ahead of Korea’s 88.9, amid the world’s growing shipbuilding dependence on China and China’s, Japan’s, and Korea’s growing shares of the world’s shipbuilding market. Korea had an advantage over China in research and development (R&D), design, and procurement, but its gap with China narrowed and it lost ground to China in production. Korea was also overtaken by China in the aftermarket (AM) for ship maintenance and repairs and in the service and demand sectors, the institute analyzed.

Among single shipyards, Samsung Heavy Industries, HD Hyundai Heavy Industries, Hanwha Ocean, and HD Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries ranked first through fourth in terms of order backlogs in March. However, when looking at shipbuilding groups, CSSC, the largest state-owned shipbuilding group of China, topped the list by a wide margin. Other Chinese state-run enterprises such as COSCO and China Merchant were also in the top 10 club.
