Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Argentine industry alerts the Government of crisis due to the mobilization of stevedoring in Puerto Deseado

Wednesday, November 15, 2023

The Argentine fishing employers' association, brought together in the Inter-Chambers of the Argentine Fishing Industry, has conveyed to the country's Undersecretary of Fisheries, Carlos Liberman, its "concern" about the serious crisis generated in the fishing terminal of Puerto Deseado, where a labor conflict of the Local stowage is negatively affecting squid landings in the most important campaign of the year for Puerto Deseado. The pressure from the unions, whose “irrational attitude” according to the sector has prevented the normal export of the resource, has led numerous shipping companies not to enter this port.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: European fish oil producers push Scotland to rethink ban on sandeel fishing

Wednesday, November 15, 2023

European Fishmeal and Fish Oil Producers (EFFOP) has warned the Scottish government to carefully consider the consequences of its proposal to cease all sandeel fishing in the country’s waters.

Recognizing that European sandeel fishing has historically been an important resource within the fishmeal market, the EFFOP claims an abrupt closure of the fishery in Scotland might disrupt supply chains, impact jobs, and negatively affect local economies.

Other Media | FishFocus: UK seaweed farming industry will need public trust to succeed

Wednesday, November 15, 2023

Attitudes towards the UK’s emerging seaweed farming sector and lessons to learn from other aquaculture industries have been documented and analysed in a new report.

The Social Licence for Seaweed Farming project, led by the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban and funded by WWF, has used the findings to produce resources for would-be seaweed farmers to improve social licence, a term given to an activity that has gained public trust and backing.

IN BRIEF - Greek and Chinese companies own 34% of the global fleet’s cargo capacity

Tuesday, November 14, 2023

The global fleet of cargo carrying ships consists of around 61,000 ships with a deadweight capacity of about 2,200 million tonnes. The ships owned by Greek and Chinese shipping companies contribute 34% of the total fleet’s deadweight tonne capacity, according to BIMCO.

Although consolidation has been significant within the container shipping segment, the overall shipping market is still very fragmented, and the average shipping company only owns a few ships. Over time, key shipping nations have, however, emerged. Some have since lost importance due to shifts in global trade, but Greece has remained the world's foremost shipping nation.

More recently, China’s importance as a shipping nation has grown and Chinese shipowners now jointly control the world’s largest merchant fleet. The country also currently owns the second largest fleet of cargo carrying ships.

Measured by cargo capacity, Greek shipowners control the world’s largest fleet of cargo carrying ships. In total, they control 19% of the cargo carrying capacity and maintain a particularly high share within the dry bulk, tanker, and gas carrier sectors.[...]

IN BRIEF - Global shrimp production will decline by 1% in 2023

Tuesday, November 14, 2023

The shrimp aquaculture industry in Asia entered the low production season in November-February; the full season in Latin America will last until February-March.

Total farmed shrimp production in 2023 is expected to be about 5.6 million tons, down about one percent from 2022. The 2024 forecast calls for a recovery of 4.8 percent from that volume.

In international trade, China is likely to maintain a strong import trend in the last quarter of 2023 to cover the high consumption season in December, January and February. However, in the United States of America, any increase in consumer demand will be met by imports from Latin America due to lower logistics costs.

Inflation is falling in all major European countries. However, traders are reluctant to start buying for the Christmas period as demand for crustaceans, including shrimp, remains weak.

Shrimp demand in Southeast Asia and the Far East is expected to improve by the end of the year due to Christmas, Gregorian New Year and Lunar New Year celebrations between December and February. Prices will strengthen during this period when overall production is seasonally low. [...]

IN BRIEF - Combating overfishing: Council adopts revised rules for the EU’s fisheries control system

Tuesday, November 14, 2023

Today the Council gave its final green light to the revision of the EU’s fisheries control system, modernising the way fishing is controlled.

Around 70% of the existing rules for controlling fishing vessels are updated by the newly adopted regulation, which will help ensure that EU vessels and other vessels fishing in EU waters follow the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

The main changes introduced include:

  • vessel monitoring systems (VMS) and electronic recording of catches: to ensure compliance with the CFP, all fishing vessels will be tracked via a VMS and all catches will need to be recorded via electronic means; in the case of certain small-scale coastal fishing vessels under 9 metres in length, exemptions from the VMS requirement may be granted until 31 December 2029
  • remote electronic monitoring tools will be used in the case of larger vessels to ensure that unwanted catches are not being discarded at sea in violation of the ‘landing obligation’, but instead brought to land
  • recreational fisheries: recreational fishers catching specific species will need to record and report their catches via an electronic system; while, initially, a limited number of species will be covered, the number may increase based on scientific advice
  • revision of the sanctioning system: a comprehensive list of serious infringements of CFP rules is established at EU level; member states must ensure that perpetrators are subject to effective, proportionate and dissuasive administrative sanctions; additionally, or as an alternative, criminal sanctions may be used
  • improved digital traceability along the supply chain: it will be easier to trace fresh fishery and aquaculture products; in the case of processed products, this will be done following a Commission study on the available solutions and after a five-year transition period

IN BRIEF - EU and Neighbourhood countries commit to enhanced fisheries management control in the Mediterranean and Black Sea

Tuesday, November 14, 2023

Among the main measures, the EU and neighbouring countries agreed within the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) to launch new tools to keep track of the activities of all fleets fishing in the Mediterranean and the Black Seas and sharing the various multiannual management plans (MAPs). The new mechanism will follow up on cases of non-compliance through appropriate and proportionate measures. To consolidate joint efforts in the Mediterranean and make sure the measures deliver on the ground, a European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) patrol vessel will be deployed permanently still this year.

At the 46th annual meeting of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM), which took place between 6-10 November in Split, the EU and neighbouring countries agreed to reinforce the level playing field in control and management of fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Seas. This is a key step in ensuring that all operators involved in fisheries follow the same standards, based on the principles of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

Thanks to the efforts of the EU and more than 12 other coastal states, the GFCM unanimously adopted a total of 34 shared measures. The EU will support the implementation of the measures and the GFCM 2030 Strategy with an annual grant of €8 million.

IN BRIEF - Turkish aquaculture exports surpass $1.4 bln in 10 months

Tuesday, November 14, 2023

A recent statement from the Aegean Exporters' Associations underscored Türkiye's prowess in aquaculture exports, revealing a total of $1.404 billion for the 10-month period of 2023, with a remarkable 68 percent coming from the Aegean region.

Diving into the specifics of aquaculture product exports, sea bass emerged as the frontrunner with an impressive $435 million, followed by sea bream at $353 million, salmon at $315 million and trout at $96 million.

The report highlighted that 73 percent of sea bass and 78 percent of sea bream were exported fresh, while 74 percent of salmon exports were frozen.

U.K. ranked first in fresh sea bass exports with $29 million. The Russian Federation was by far the leading country for frozen salmon and frozen trout exports with a demand of $158 million.

In a significant development, Sinan Kiziltan, Chairman of the Sector Board of the Turkish Aquaculture and Animal Products Exporters' Associations, has unveiled the industry's remarkable performance and set a 2024 target that will escalate from the current year-end projection of $1.7 billion to an ambitious $2 billion.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: EU shipowners hope that Iccat will agree to increases in the quota for their species

Tuesday, November 14, 2023

The summit of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna (Iccat), with representatives from 79 countries, has been launched to debate the rules for the exploitation of tunas and related species in this ocean, some of special interest for the Spanish fleet , such as northern albacore, bigeye tuna, swordfish, tropical tunas and quenlla or blue shark. The representatives of the tuna fleet seek to know if the quota of their tropical species increases and those of the Galician surface longline that depend on blue shark fishing will be expectant of the regulations that are adopted for the management of the species
