Other Media | iPac.aquacultura: Mussel and seaweed farms offer potential benefits for fishing

Monday, April 29, 2024

Today, much is known about the benefits that, from an environmental point of view, the cultivation of bivalve mollusks and seaweed offers, which are potentially sustainable food sources. However, very little is known about the effects of these crops on fish populations. Starting from this conception, researchers from the Marine Biological Association (MBA) and the University of Exeter have teamed up to determine whether these aquaculture sites help or can hinder the abundance and diversity of fish.

To do this, the researchers carried out a study on two integrated mussel and seaweed farms in Cornwall.

India was the 12th main destination for Brazilian agricultural exports last year, with shipments of US$2.9 billion

Brazil will be able to export farmed fish (aquaculture) and captured fish (extractive fishing) to India, the Ministry of Agriculture said in a statement. The opening of the market was confirmed by Indian authorities to the Brazilian government this Friday.

Last year, India also authorized the import of Brazilian açaí powder and açaí juice.

In the first quarter of this year, Brazil exported more than 12 thousand tons of fish to around 90 countries, with revenue of US$ 193 million, 160% more in the annual comparison. “We remain committed to expanding the presence of Brazilian agricultural products on shelves around the world. This strategy not only opens up more international opportunities for our products and demonstrates confidence in our health control system, but also strengthens the domestic economy”, said Mapa's Secretary of Commerce and International Relations, Roberto Perosa, in the note.

IN BRIEF - Milko Schvartzman on '... a Southwest Atlantic fisheries management pact'

Thursday, April 25, 2024

“Everything that is preyed on at mile 201, from a biological point of view, is as if it were preyed on at mile 199, within the EEZ of Argentina”

“Argentina must work on the creation of a South Atlantic Conservation Commission. If progress is not made in regulating what is currently an environmental and human rights crime, soon we will not have species to protect because the fishing ground will have collapsed, something that has not yet happened by miracle." "Argentina is already a member of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR/CCAMLR), where it votes and approves the allocation of capture quotas within the Georgias and Sandwich Islands, which are Argentine EEZ according to the National Constitution, therefore there is no aspect "that affects the claim of sovereignty over the Malvinas that prevents the creation of a fishing conservation and regulation area in international waters, where there is no sovereignty dispute, but there is an environmental tragedy."

Mentioned Milko Schvartzman, expert in marine conservation and illegal fishing.

Other Media | Industriss Pesqueras: Opagac urges the European Union in relation to the Chinese fleet: 'The time has come to act forcefully'

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

Following the publication of the report by the Environmental Justice Foundation, EJF, on the systematic abuses committed on board the Asian country's fleet in the southwestern Indian Ocean between 2017 and 2023, the Spanish tuna fleet grouped in Opagac has asked the European Union to take action. “If the EU allows imports of fish caught by this fleet for the consumption of European citizens, it is becoming an accomplice in this type of crime,” denounces Julio Morón, managing director of Opagac. "The time has come to act decisively against a fleet supported mainly by government subsidies, whose growth and practices are uncontrolled, as the EJF report corroborates, and which, furthermore, represents a serious threat to fish stocks and coastal communities in the areas in which it operates, generally economically vulnerable and highly dependent on its fishing resources.”
