IN BRIEF - Uptick in Local Diversified Seafood Production

Friday, May 31, 2024

The National Fisheries Authority (NFA) is reporting an uptick in diverse fisheries production out-turns, including for sea cucumber and sea moss (a species of algae).

Principal Director of the NFA’s Capture Fisheries Division, Stephen Smikle, says the Authority welcomes this level of engagement by local producers.

“In recent years, we have seen a rise in non-traditional products like sea moss and sea cucumber, which [are] produced primarily for export, and we have had some level of increased production in conch and lobster,” he said.

Mr. Smikle told JIS News that these products are considered fish under the law and, as such, the industry and its operations must be regulated.

According to a Polaris Market Research Report, the global sea moss industry was valued at US$2.58 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 1.8 percent by 2032.

Aquatic plants are defined as fish under the Fisheries Act.

Persons interested in harvesting and/or growing sea moss, require a license from the NFA.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The yellow card to Senegal endangers the future of the fishing agreement with Europe

Friday, May 31, 2024

Generalized concern in the Spanish fishing sector about the possible consequences that the yellow card for illegal fishing that the European Commission has just issued to Senegal may entail, with direct implications for the interests of the fleet that fishes under the protection of the EU-Senegal fishing agreement. as well as for the set of mixed Galician and Andalusian societies present in the African state. If the Senegalese Government does not agree to improve its compliance and control guarantees, and reinforce its commitment to the fight against illegal fishing by correcting the “serious deficiencies” argued by Brussels, the yellow card could become a red one. And with this, the closure of the community market to all fish landed in Senegalese ports and processed in its factories.
