IN BRIEF - Government training fisheries staff but only 43pct now working in sector

Thursday, May 18, 2023

Portugal’s ministry of agriculture and food on Wednesday assured that it is training professionals in fisheries, but that “only 43% said they are now in employment,” after ship owners in the western Algarve complained about the lack of training.

In a written response to questions from Lusa, the ministry said that the Centre for Professional Training in Fisheries and the Sea (For-Mar), between 2018 and 2022 “trained 2,727 people in introductory courses in the career of fishing (“Sea Fishermen and Anglers”)”.

According to the ministry, “six months after the end of the courses, former trainees of the sea fishermen and anglers courses were surveyed in order to know, among other things, if they had found work in the fishing sector,” and, “according to the responses obtained,” “only 43% said they were working in the sector, which shows that the sector cannot absorb a good part of the former trainees”.

IN BRIEF - Australian authorities coordinate multinational search for capsized Chinese fishing vessel

Thursday, May 18, 2023

CANBERRA (Xinhua) -- Australian authorities have identified a large area in the Indian Ocean where they will focus the search for a capsized Chinese fishing vessel.

A spokesperson for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) told Xinhua on Thursday that, based on drift modeling, a remote 12,000 square km zone has been identified to search for the vessel.

A Chinese deep-sea fishing vessel capsized on Tuesday in the central Indian Ocean, which has so far left 39 people on board missing, including 17 Chinese mariners, 17 Indonesian mariners and five Philippine mariners.

China's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the Ministry of Transport, and Shandong Province have activated emergency response mechanisms to organize the rescue work. On-site rescue is underway.

IN BRIEF - As crab standoff drags on, idle Triton fish plant workers plead for help

Thursday, May 18, 2023

In Triton, a fish plant that would normally be well into its fifth or sixth week processing crab sits silent, while its 120 employees — like hundreds of others across Newfoundland and Labrador — wait for the snow crab season to start.

Plant worker Rita Lush said this year is the hardest workers have ever had in the four-plus decades she's worked at the Ocean Choice International facility.

"Our plant workers are suffering," said an emotional Lush on Wednesday, gathered with several co-workers outside the plant. "We're all worried about each other.… We're a family, and someone needs to do something for us. Our community is suffering."

Fellow plant worker Doretta Strickland — also the local plant union president and a vice-president of the Fish, Food & Allied Workers union — said the workers need help. Employment insurance is running out for many, she said, and that's affected the broader community, with people saving their money rather than spending in the community.

"It's serious stuff when you don't know if you're going to have enough money now in the days to come for EI," she said. "Everybody's EI cutting off. Every week it's someone different. And our community's not going to survive."

Like Lush, Yvonne Short has worked at the plant since it opened — and if the machines don't start running soon, she said, she doesn't know what she'll do.

IN BRIEF - Frozen sockeye prices continue to slide

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Lots of frozen sockeye carryover from the 2022 season are pushing down wild salmon prices across the board.

The massive record-breaking sockeye season from 2022 continues to have a major impact across the entire salmon complex.

The most immediate is the general weakening on frozen sockeye. With the upcoming season about a month away, there is pressure to move through older inventories. Many market participants report heavy discounting among some sellers to incentivize sales and keep things moving.

Sockeye 2-3 lb. frozen fillets at the start of 2023 were at an average price of about $9.25/lb. Prices started to fall at the beginning of February and continue to do so. Pricing is currently at $7.75, down 16.2% in only three months.
