IN BRIEF - Chinese squid catch and imports are up, but domestic consumption is down

Monday, December 11, 2023

China has long been fishing overseas for squid, especially outside South America, and the catch has increased in 2023.

China's squid production is estimated to reach 757,000 tons in 2023. At the same time, squid imports into China increased to 350,000 tons. tons during the first nine months of 2023, compared to 334,000 tons for the same period in 2022. But squid exports from China are expected to fall 10 percent to about 500,000 tonnes in 2023.

However, domestic consumption of squid does not increase. On the contrary, it is falling, and this creates a problem for traders who are left with growing inventories. Thus, the outlook for the Chinese squid market is quite bleak.

IN BRIEF - International forum agrees to increased quota for large Pacific bluefin tuna

Monday, December 11, 2023

An international commission managing fisheries in the western and central Pacific Ocean has decided to increase the annual quota for large bluefin tuna next season.

The agreement was reached at an annual meeting of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission. The meeting was held in the Cook Islands from last Monday through Saturday.

The commission discussed how to manage the regional stocks of high-end bluefin tuna, which is a popular sushi topping.

Japan's Fisheries Agency says the meeting unanimously agreed to special measures for next season proposed by Japan and other member nations.

The agreement called for expanding the quota for large bluefin weighing 30 kilograms or more, while decreasing that for smaller fish weighing less than 30 kilograms.

The agency says that with the agreement, it now plans to increase the quota for the government-managed off-shore bluefin catch, using round haul nets and drift nets, by more than 400 tons from this season to 4,820 tons next season.

The agency plans to formally decide on the figure as early as next week. This will be the first increase in two years.

The agency also plans to propose at the next year's meeting to regularly expand the quotas on the grounds that bluefin stocks in the region have been recovering.

IN BRIEF - Landings down up to 50 to 75% in opening days of lobster fishery

Monday, December 11, 2023

The only record landings being caught so far this year in the southwestern Nova Scotia lobster fishery are on the low end of the scale.

“The inside boats, the catches are okay. But the outside boats fishing 45, 50 fathoms, (there's) been nothing. It’s been a disaster,” said Lockeport buyer Mike Cotter of Cotter’s Ocean Products.

Fishermen in Lobster Fishing Area (LFA) 33, where the season opened on Nov. 26, “have been able to move their gear inside, and hopefully with the price they’re going to make a season out of it,” Cotter said.

The opening shore price of $10.50 a pound is about the only bright spot so far this season. Last year, the season opened at $7.50.

“The price is helping out a lot,” said Cotter.

In neighbouring LFA 34, where the season opened on Dec. 2 following five days of weather delays, “the catches are way, way down," Cotter said.

"I was talking to people in Meteghan, Brier Island, Pubnico. The inside boats are catching a few but they’re still down 20 to 30 percent. Some areas are down 50 per cent,” said Cotter.

Dan Fleck project manager for the Brazil Rock 33/34 Lobster Association, said in LFA 34 fishers fishing offshore from the 25-to-50-mile line, are reporting catches are down as much as 75 per cent.[...]

IN BRIEF - Thousands of dead sardines off the coast of Japan cause uncertainty

Monday, December 11, 2023

Specialists indicated that it is not known why thousands of dead sardines appeared on the coast of Japan.
Residents and marine life specialists were baffled when thousands of dead sardines appeared on the coast of Japan, which caused uncertainty because it is not known why this number of fish lost their lives and ended up on the shore of the Japanese Sea.
According to the information consulted, the events occurred on the coast of Hakodate, in Hokkaido, the northernmost main island of Japan, where last Friday a huge amount of dead sardines appeared on the shore of the beach. Authorities recommended not consuming these fish.
The fact surprised fishermen and specialists because they pointed out that they had never seen such a number of dead fish in the area, although it is known that massive amounts of dead species washed up on the shores of the sea. The mystery increases after it has not been possible to specify under what circumstances these fish died.[...]

IN BRIEF - New England's shrimp fishery, victim of climate change, to remain closed indefinitely

Monday, December 11, 2023

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — New England's long-shuttered shrimp business, which fell victim to warming waters, will remain in a fishing moratorium indefinitely, fishery regulators ruled last week.

The shrimping business was based mostly in Maine and produced small, pink shrimp that were a winter delicacy in New England and across the country. The industry has been in a moratorium since 2013 in large part because environmental conditions off New England are unfavorable for the cold water-loving shrimp.

That moratorium will remain in effect with no firm end date, a board of the regulatory Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission voted Friday, Dec. 1. The board stopped short of calling the move a permanent moratorium because it included a provision to continue monitoring the shrimp population and consider reopening the fishery if the crustaceans approach a healthy level.

But it was clear board members saw little chance of a future for a fishery that once provided a beloved seafood item that appeared on restaurant menus and in seafood markets every year around Christmas.[...]

This announcement took place during the commemoration of the 43rd Fishermen’s Day at Dharubaaruge yesterday evening.

The initiative aims to ensure that every fishing vessel has at least one crew member certified as a “rescue diver.” The President underscored the high priority accorded to fishermen in the Administration’s Manifesto.

In addition to this, plans were unveiled to establish a dedicated agency for advertising and promoting fish products to foreign markets under a unique Maldivian brand. President Dr. Muizzu outlined both ongoing and future initiatives geared towards enhancing the welfare and prosperity of fishermen.

During the ceremony, President recognized the achievements of individuals in the fisheries sector by presenting 19 awards as part of the Fishermen’s Day prizes.

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.
