Other Media | SeafoodSource: Domestic pangasius consumption campaign struggling to gain traction in Vietnam

Thursday, January 26, 2023

Vietnam, the world’s largest producer and exporter of pangasius, has begun concentrating its sales pitch for its top fish export on a new market – its own.

With more than USD 2.4 billion (EUR 2.2) in export sales in 2022, pangasius was Vietnam’s number-two seafood export by value behind shrimp at USD 4.3 billion (EUR 4.1 billion). Most of the country’s pangasius is farmed in the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam. Despite challenges,

Other Media | WorldFishing: Tesco fish packaging project

Thursday, January 26, 2023

UK retail giant Tesco has announced it is to start using discarded plastic collected from coastal areas in its packaging for fresh fish products.

From next week, many of the supermarket chain’s fresh salmon, haddock, cod and seabass lines will be sold for the first time in trays that contain at least 30% recycled coastal plastic collected from beaches, coastlines and coastal communities around the Mediterranean Sea.

The move into the new packaging is expected to remove around 500 tonnes of plastic from the environment each year and reduce the amount of so-called “virgin plastic” required in the packaging.

IN BRIEF - EPP Group Fisheries Committee on 'The state of play in the implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy and future perspectives'

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Quotes from EPP Group Fisheries Committee coordinator, Mr Gabriel Mato, in the debate on the presentation of his draft report on "The state of play in the implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy and future perspectives" that took place today in the Fisheries Committee of the European Parliament:

"The future Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) needs a paradigm shift from rigid and unrealistic targets to pragmatic and achievable objectives. The objectives of the current CFP are too focused on environmental considerations. It is equally vital to ensure food security, much needed especially now in times of geopolitical crisis, and a positive social and economic return for fishermen and coastal communities. Therefore, the CFP reform must aim to achieve a rebalancing of its objectives by strengthening the socio-economic and food security dimensions.

Fisheries must gain its position as a strategic sector in producing healthy and high quality food.

We must promote the CFP as a policy model for ocean governance and defend the interests of the EU fisheries sector in international fora. It is vital to maintain the EU operators' competitiveness, by guaranteeing a level-playing field for all operators at global level. Imported seafood products must be subject to high environmental and social standards, similar to those applied in the Union.

We need to develop specific measures for fisheries and aquaculture for the outermost regions and give them the possibility to renew their artisanal fleets.

I hope that this report will set solid foundations for an ambitious and fair reform, where fishermen, aquaculture producers and all related industries will be in the centre of the policy."

IN BRIEF - ARVI is part of the CIRCAZUL project

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

CIRCAZUL, 'Towards a Circularity of Inorganic Waste from the fishing sector in the context of Blue Growth', integrates fishing organizations (ARVI, the Vigo Fishermen's Guild, OPROMAR, FAAPE, FACOPE, Sanlúcar Guild), AGAPA, the Agency Port Authority of Andalusia, ports of General Interest (Port of Vigo and Port of Marín) and regional ports (ports of Punta Umbría, Isla Cristina, Motril, Estepona) and 3 Knowledge Spaces (CETMAR, the Port Authority of Vigo and the University of Cádiz) of Galicia and Andalusia.
The general objective of the CIRCAZUL project is to prevent and combat marine pollution by capitalizing on existing information and knowledge, developing and demonstrating waste collection and recovery systems (especially plastic) from the fishing sector, and promoting alliances between different sectors and agents. These objectives are in line with the principles of the circular economy and with the zero pollution objectives of the Green Deal.
The results of the project will be applied and transferred to other regions through the Interterritorial Communication Platform for Knowledge Spaces on Blue Growth, as well as through specific communication actions that will facilitate the implementation of current legislation, contributing to some healthy marine ecosystems that allow the development of a blue economy.
