Uvesco continues to promote local food and welcomes the first anchovies of the 2023 campaign, coming from the ports of Santoña and Hondarribia, which are already in the fishmongers of BM Supermercados.
With these first specimens, captured at dawn and highly valued for their high quality, this year's campaign begins. In total, between yesterday and today, Friday, more than 2,500 kilos have been distributed in all BM fishmongers, which add up to nearly 250 sections served.
The BM fishmongers model also allows us to bet on sustainability, by working directly with Cantabrian ports and fish from our coasts, and on excellence in service, with attended fishmongers that allow the customer to have the product they want at all times.
Land in Shetland, a joint campaign by Lerwick Port Authority and Shetland Islands Council to encourage more skippers to land their catches in the isles’ fish markets, has launched the first in a series of promotional videos along with a dedicated website.
At this time of high fuel prices, there are clearly significant cost and carbon footprint savings to be made from landing in Shetland.
New state-of-the-art fish markets in Lerwick and Scalloway have substantially increased daily landing capacity and the modern infrastructure, including its efficient chilling, ensures best quality of produce is maintained.
More than half of all the fish landed in the UK comes from within 100 nautical miles of Shetland, and with such first-class facilities and support services available, it makes clear sense to land in Shetland.
The videos, featuring fishing skippers and port and industry representatives, highlight the benefits to boats:
Time and money saved from reduced steaming to fishing grounds
Electronic auction with prices as good as if not better than markets elsewhere in Scotland
Easy berthing and fast, efficient landing into chilled markets
Ready availability of support services such as ice, boxes, engineering
A one-day stakeholder consultation at the Crown Beach Resort in Rarotonga was held to discuss an upcoming project related to tuna fisheries in the region.
This Green Climate Fund (GCF) funded project is being developed, and this stakeholder consultation was to make sure relevant project activities are in line with the needs of the Cook Islands in regards to tuna fisheries.
Te Ipukarea Society attended the one-day workshop alongside individuals representing Ministry of Marine Resources (MMR), The Pacific Community (SPC), Conservation International (CI) as well as local fishermen including some from the outer islands.
CMA CGM posted a 3.6% year-on-year drop in fourth quarter revenue to $16.89 billion, while earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) came in at $5.69 billion, down 30.9% from the previous year.
Market conditions in the transport and logistics industry continued to deteriorate in the second half of 2022, the group said, citing geopolitical tensions, macroeconomic uncertainty, and a sharp decrease of freight rates.
To address these challenges, CMA CGM said it reinvested almost 90% of its 2022 net profits in its industrial assets and capabilities, strengthened its balance sheet and enhanced its financial flexibility.
Full year revenue for 2022 stood at $74.5 billion, a 33% increase from 2021, while EBITDA came to $33.3 billion, up 44.2% year-on-year.
The Alaska House of Representatives voted 35-1 on Wednesday to approve a letter urging state and federal officials to fight a lawsuit that could shut down a major king salmon fishery in Southeast Alaska.
The resolution has broad bipartisan support in the Alaska Legislature, where lawmakers view the issue as one about an outside group attacking Alaskans’ way of life.
Since 2020, the Washington state-based Wild Fish Conservancy has been fighting the National Marine Fisheries Service in court, arguing that the agency acted illegally when it approved a 2019 document that provides Endangered Species Act coverage for all of Southeast Alaska’s salmon fisheries. That document allows fishermen to catch salmon also sought by endangered species.
Those whales consume king salmon (Chinook salmon / Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) that live part of their lives in Southeast Alaska waters, and king salmon are highly prized by fishermen. Commercial trollers, mostly in small boats, use hooks and lines to catch kings to sell.
McDowell Group, now known as McKinley Research Group, has estimated that 1,450 fishermen — including crew and boat owners — participate in the Southeast troll fishery, which has an economic impact of $85 million.About 44% of that economic activity is from the king salmon harvest, McDowell estimated.
On 2 March, Ghana announced its commitment to achieving 100 percent transparency across its commercial fisheries by 2025.
The announcement came less than a year after the European Commission issued a second yellow card to the West African nation, a warning that could result in the banning of its products from the European marketplace.
Ghana will install video cameras, remote sensors, global positioning systems, and electronic monitoring system hard drives on fishing boats to ensure activities are effectively monitored and valuable data collected.

Crabbers across Southeast Alaska set out Feb. 12 for the region’s commercial tanner crab fishery, facing reportedly low prices, but a strong stock estimate.
Fifty six boats registered for the season, which began a few weeks after Kodiak crabbers went on strike over low prices. Kodiak processors offered around $3 per pound, according to a report in journalist Nat Herz’s newsletter, Northern Journal. That’s below half of last year’s prices, which climbed up to $8.
“We haven’t received any fish tickets so I don’t have what the price is this year but there have been other published articles that have stated it will be less,” state fisheries biologist Zane Chapman said in an email to the CVN, referring to the Southeast fishery.
Fisheries managers are keeping the season open for an additional day, they announced right before the opener. That means “core” areas, like Berner’s Bay, were open for six days; they closed on Sunday. “Non Core” areas, including much of the Lynn Canal, were open through noon Feb. 23. Some other areas will stay open until the end of March.
