Wednesday, May 31, 2023

New Irish €26.8 million investment under Brexit Processing Capital Support Scheme.

Ireland’ Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue, has announced details of a €26.8 million investment in 44 seafood processing projects which are helping drive transformational change in the sector.

The Seafood Capital Processing Scheme is funded by the European Union under the Brexit Adjustment Reserve (BAR). Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s seafood development agency, administers the scheme on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, which provides for up to €45 million in funding to the seafood processing sector.

Announcing details of the investment on European Maritime Day, Minister McConalogue said:

“The Processing Capital Support Scheme is providing significant investment in seafood processing enterprises, which employ some 4,000 people in rural coastal communities.

“This scheme is supporting seafood processing industry to develop their enterprises, navigate the challenging trading environment and support jobs in this important sector.

“I am pleased to highlight Brexit Adjustment Reserve funding opportunities available to the Irish seafood processing sector as Europe’s marine community come together on European Maritime Day.”

IN BRIEF - The Scottish Pelagic Industry-Science Data Collection Programme has published its 2023 Annual Report

Friday, April 12, 2024

The Scottish Pelagic Industry-Science Data Collection Programme (SPISDCP) is a collaboration between the Scottish Pelagic Fishermen’s Association, UHI Shetland and the Marine Directorate of the Scottish government.

Within the programme, crews onboard Scottish pelagic fishing vessels undertake sampling of their catches in two ways: self-sampling, whereby vessel crews measure the length and weight of a sample of fish in the catch; and co-sampling, whereby crews collect frozen samples of fish for scientists onshore to carry out biological sampling of length, sex, maturity and ageing.

The data collected provide valuable biological information for each of the targeted species, highlighting patterns and changes in distribution and size of fish in the catch. In January 2022 the co-sampling scheme was adopted under Scotland’s national sampling programme to become the main mechanism for collecting biological data on the catches of pelagic fish to be used in stock assessments.

The annual report provides a summary of the data collected across the herring, mackerel and blue whiting fisheries, from the start of data collection in July 2018, up to the latest collation of data in September 2023, and is intended as an overview of the current dataset to date.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: LDAC asks Brussels to penalize Norway for its 'aggressiveness' against EU fishing interests

Friday, April 12, 2024

The organization considers it necessary to act in the face of the political shift in Norway after Brexit on issues such as cod or mackerel.

The Long Distance Fleet Advisory Council proposes eliminating Norwegian fishing products from the tariff quota regulations and putting sustainability back at the center of fishing relations between both powers.

Norway has historically been a strategic partner for Europe in fishing matters, and not only because the community market is a priority for the great Scandinavian fishing and aquaculture power, which directs up to 27.4% of production to the EU.
