IN BRIEF - Maersk Finalizes ECO Delivery Deal with Amazon

Monday, September 25, 2023

Maersk ECO Delivery reduces global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions footprints through certified low emission fuel for ocean shipping as an alternative to fossil fuels

Florham Park, New Jersey – A.P. Moller - Maersk (Maersk) and Amazon have finalized a 2023-2024 agreement for the transport of 20,000 FFE containers using green biofuel through Maersk’s “ECO Delivery” ocean product offering. Maersk estimates this purchase will contribute to a reduction in 44,600 metric tons of CO2e vs standard bunker fuel, roughly equivalent to 50 million pounds of coal burned. This is the fourth consecutive year that Amazon and Maersk have arranged container shipping using low GHG fuel options.

The ECO Delivery biofuel option offers emission reductions that enable immediate and externally verified GHG savings for customers, without compensatory measures like offsetting. This year, Amazon will benefit from a new feature of the ECO Delivery product which will be enabled by also using green methanol in addition to the bio diesel as a second green fuel* in the vessel fleet. ECO Delivery is using primary data for fuel consumption in the methodology to report emissions savings with greater precision, inclusive of other greenhouse gases in addition to the CO2.[...]

IN BRIEF - Shrimp exports could total 3.4 billion dollars

Saturday, December 09, 2023

Hanoi (VNA)-Vietnam could reach about 3.4 billion dollars from shrimp sales abroad by the end of this year, a year-on-year decrease of 21 percent, as predicted by the Vietnam Seafood Processors and Exporters Association ( VASEP).
The same source reported that Vietnamese shrimp exports in November recorded 310 million dollars, a year-on-year increase of 3.5 percent. With that sum, the income from sending this item abroad during the first 11 months amounted to 3.15 billion dollars, a figure that represented a drop of 22 percent compared to the same period in 2022.
The main receiving markets for this product from Vietnam are the United States, China, Japan, the European Union and South Korea.
Shrimp exports remain dominated by price competition amid global oversupply and low sales values.
According to VASEP assessments, demand for shrimp in Southeast Asia and the Far East is expected to improve at the end of the year thanks to Christmas and the Lunar New Year. Prices could increase during that period.

Friday, December 08, 2023

Fishermen have been catching and selling blue fin tuna from UK waters on a trial basis.

A pilot fishery started in August, with seven of 10 licences going to fishermen in Cornwall and two in Devon.

The species is newly returned and stocks have been increasing in recent years, with researchers and the government closely monitoring levels.

They can be 10ft (3m) long, weigh more than 1,000llbs (454kg) and some this year have sold for more than £3,000.

IN BRIEF - Pacific saury catch reached 20,000 tons at the end of November for the first time in three years

Friday, December 08, 2023

Zenma Sanma announced the total of saury landings for the 2023 fishing season as of the end of November. The amount of fish landed was 24,046 tons (35% increase compared to the same period last year), returning to the 20,000-ton level for the first time in three years since the 2020 fishing season (final 29,566 tons). However, because the average unit price was 30% lower, the value of the fish landed was 10,007,971,000 yen (3% decrease), lower than the previous fishing season.

In November, a single month increase of 8,575 tons (25% increase) was achieved. In addition to being visible off the coast of Sanriku in late October, schools of fish have been seen off the Sea of ??Okhotsk in Hokkaido, and for the first time in a long time, a major fishing ground has been formed in the waters near Japan. For the past two years, only large vessels were able to fish for saury, mainly in international waters, but small and medium-sized vessels are now able to fish for saury for the first time in three years.

The total was about 14,000 tons, including about 6,000 tons from the Sea of ??Okhotsk fishing grounds and about 8,000 tons off the coast of Sanriku.

IN BRIEF - COP23: good news for marine species and climate action in the Mediterranean

Friday, December 08, 2023

WWF celebrates today’s decision by Mediterranean countries gathered at the 23rd COP of the Barcelona Convention in Portoroz (Slovenia) to increase the protection of six threatened species of sharks and rays by prohibiting their landing and put in place better conservation measures for three others.

This is a crucial step forward for the protection of these species, especially in a region that has the highest percentage of sharks and rays threatened with extinction globally. It’s also an important contribution to the achievement of the 30% protection target of the CBD Global Biodiversity Framework.

To make this even more effective, we agree with the need to assess and mitigate the possible adverse socio-economic impacts of the decision and work with communities to support potentially required transitions, and secure incomes and livelihoods.

WWF also welcomes the decision to establish a Regional Activity Center for Climate Change in Türkiye aimed at increasing regional collaboration to accelerate action to address the impacts of climate change.
