Members of the Chilean Senate have resumed examination of a bill that seeks to extend a block on the approval of new salmon farms until 2030.
The bill was first presented last year by parliamentarians Ximena Órdenes and Alfonso de Urresti, “taking into special consideration the fragility of ecosystems, in a climate change scenario that is having effects on the environment”.

The North Atlantic Pelagic Advocacy Group (NAPA), speaking as a collective of businesses with a major share of Northeast Atlantic pelagic purchasing, has aimed an open letter to Ministers, challenging them to address shortfalls in management of North-east Atlantic pelagic stocks.
Just a reminder from the global marketplace for seafood: we want to see sustainable fishing in the North-east Atlantic. NAPA is directly invested in the responsible, science-driven management of Northeast Atlantic mackerel, Atlanto-scandian herring and North East Atlantic blue whiting.

Japan has been importing more Humboldt squid from Peru in recent years, mainly for use in processed products that formerly used domestic Japanese flying squid.
The first year that Japanese Customs reports imports from Peru under the harmonized tariff code 0307.43.030 is 2017. The code covers Japanese flying squid (Todarodes pacificus), jumbo flying squid (Dosidicus gigas, also called Humboldt squid), Japanese squid (Loliolus spp.), shortfin squid (Illex spp.) and sparkling enope squid (Watasenia scintillans).

“Prices have been going sideways for several weeks in a row. There is no upswing. 46-49 kroner (EUR 4.6-4.9) at 3-6 kg, I think,” said a salmon importer to SalmonBusiness. “It has been the same price for three weeks in a row, so there is no difference,” he added.
“At best stable, but I think it is rather on the downside. I see falling prices. It is probably the fifth week with optimism at the beginning of the week and stable or down towards the end of the week. Unsold fish in Oslo. Prices sound very similar last week, but there is downward pressure.”
