IN BRIEF - Japan Eyes Tighter Bluefin Tuna Catch Management

JAPAN
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

Tokyo (Jiji Press)--Japan's Fisheries Agency is planning to oblige fishery operators to report the number of Pacific bluefin tuna they catch while toughening penalties for a breach of the obligation to prevent illegal fishing.

The agency thinks it necessary to strengthen the management of tuna in response to the revelation in 2021 of the illegal distribution of bluefin tuna caught off Oma, Aomori Prefecture, northeastern Japan.

On Tuesday, the agency obtained approval of draft legislation needed to take the measures at a meeting of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. It hopes that the legislation will be enacted during the current parliamentary session ending in June.

The reporting rule will target bluefin tuna weighing 30 kilograms or over. Fishery operators will be obliged to report the exact number of such bluefin tuna caught to local governments, in addition to the total catch volume as currently required.

Fishery operators will also be obliged to create and keep records of the names of fishing vessels, the dates of landing, and the weight of each fish.

IN BRIEF - Bluefin tuna from Spanish natural location, new catch coming soon

JAPAN
Tuesday, April 23, 2024

The wild bluefin tuna fishery in southwestern Spain, which has a 3,000-year history dating back to ancient Roman times, will soon welcome a new catch.
 
The large-scale emplacement has already been completed and the first captures could be seen later this month. Tokyo Seafoods Co., Ltd. (Chuo-ku, Tokyo, president: Ryusei Yamakoshi), a specialized seafood trading company with the largest purchasing share, has been involved in this site for almost 40 years.
 
To make Japanese consumers more aware of the rare bluefin tuna caught in the Atlantic Ocean, the company plans to actively disseminate information through social networking sites (SNS).
 
According to Tsuyoshi Sugiura, director of the company's tuna group, Spain's natural bluefin tuna, which is caught in fixed locations on a large scale, is said to have "exceptional natural flavor and color appearance," and is mainly used in Sushi restaurants in Japan. It is said to have strong support not only from consumers but also from some food supermarkets.

IN BRIEF - Twins together in the dock

NETHERLANDS
Tuesday, April 23, 2024

STELLENDAM - The sister ships BL 936072 'Madeleine' and BL 937550 'Pax Dei II' together in the dock of Padmos in the Inner Harbor of Stellendam. 

The identical cutters under the French flag were built by main contractor Padmos and put into service at the beginning of 2021 and in the summer of 2022 by the De Boer families from Urk and Wattez from France. The skippers of both vessels are the cousins ??of the same name, Teunis de Boer. The first vessel in this series was also for the T. de Boer & Zonen family: the UK 124, also skippered by Teunis de Boer.

A joint docking was planned for next month, but now the dock occupancy has been exchanged with the UK 224, which is undergoing a major refit including repowering at Padmos.

Last week we steamed again to the French home port of Boulogne. The ships fish almost exclusively in the Channel. Due to the strong wind, the majority of the fleet stayed ashore on Monday.

IN BRIEF - Squid fishing boost for troubled fleet

NETHERLANDS
Tuesday, April 23, 2024

From British and French waters in the Channel, Dutch trawl fishermen follow the squid migration towards the North Sea in the autumn. 

The UK-153 'Lub Senior' caught a fish hold fifty miles west-northwest of IJmuiden in early March. Vismagazine was informed about this new winter fishing.

On Thursday evening, March 7, the UK-153 approaches the fish auction quay in IJmuiden around 10 p.m. The depth of the impressive flyshooter (illustration) suggests a good catch.

The excellent European squid or common squid (Loligo vulgaris) was caught that week barely fifty miles west of IJmuiden. “We have more than 3,400 kilos of squid on board,” says skipper Frits Korf as the first stacked fish boxes are lifted from the fish hold onto the quay.{....]

JAPAN
Tuesday, April 23, 2024

Japanese scallops, known as hotate, are highly accredited for their flavor, size, and quality. Aiming to expand the international market for hotate, the Japan Scallop Export Promotion Association (J-Hotate) will present Japanese scallops at the 2024 Seafood Expo Global event in Barcelona, at the end of April.

WORLDWIDE
Tuesday, April 23, 2024

"The European economy has left behind it an extremely challenging year, in which a confluence of factors severely tested our resilience"

At the beginning of 2023, economists predicted the U.S. was either in – or would soon be in – a recession, while the E.U. faced similar predictions of slowed growth and high inflation.

Now, a year out, it’s clear that some of those predictions weren’t entirely accurate.

Just a year ago at this time, Alimaket reported on the collaboration agreement between the plant-based specialists Grin Grin Foods and Angulas Aguinaga to develop and industrialize a new product in the category of vegetable analogues of fish.

IN BRIEF - New rules for saury catch quota and 10% reduction this year to 225,000 tons

JAPAN
Monday, April 22, 2024

The 8th annual meeting of the North Pacific Fisheries Commission (NPFC) was held for four days from the 15th to the 18th at the Osaka Prefectural International Conference Center.

Regarding the management of saury resources, it was agreed that from this year, for the first time, fishery management rules will be introduced to calculate the total allowable catch (TAC) according to the resource level. However, the TAC calculated from the latest resource levels is subject to fluctuations of up to 10% compared to the previous year, and in 2024 it is set at 225,000 tons, a 10% decrease from the previous year.

The conference was attended by nine member countries and regions, including Japan, Taiwan, China, and Russia. A press conference was held after the meeting.
