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

UNITED KINGDOM
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.

IN BRIEF - EBFA welcomes postponement of vote on total closure of 10% of EU fishing grounds

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, May 23, 2024

Until the next meeting of the EC Member States Coordination Group (MSCG) which will be in October 2024.
 
Statements by Iván López Van Deer Veen, president of the European Bottom Fishing Alliance (EBFA): “We are very happy with the decision taken today to postpone the vote to close 10% of the waters to fishing. We think it is great news that the Member States have asked for more time to better study the measures and wait for the information that needs to arrive and, above all, to study it patiently. We know that Spain has also agreed with this decision and therefore we are very satisfied and, furthermore, we believe that it is fair, since we are in an electoral period and it should be in any case after the formation of the new Parliament when decisions are made. decisions of this magnitude, and of course in important bodies and not in minor technical bodies. "It is a decision that would have a tremendous impact on the viability of European fishing and therefore should not be taken behind Parliament's back."
 
Many Member States have expressed that, due to the important implications for the fleet and food production, a decision cannot be taken lightly and therefore extensive consultations and discussions are necessary, especially with stakeholders in the fishing sector.

Last January, the Council of Ministers approved the draft Law on the Prevention of Food Losses and Waste, a norm that was already in the Senate during the last legislature, but which declined due to the dissolution of the Cortes Generales. This second opportunity for the Law will impose specific obligations on the agents of the food chain and, additionally, will consolidate the business opportunity that different B2B and B2C actors involved in surplus management have been exploiting.

SPAIN
Thursday, May 23, 2024

The urgent call for attention launched by the European Bottom Fisheries Alliance (EBFA) has had an effect. The EU countries had been summoned yesterday to comment on the proposal to ban all human activity - including fishing - 10% of all fishing grounds to protect the seabed. It was about moving forward in the application and setting of objectives within the framework of the marine strategies directive, but the fishing industry did not consider the current time, on the eve of the elections to the European Parliament, to be the best time to give a push to a process that dates back to 2008
