IN BRIEF - Astilleros de Bermeo builds a new fishing vessel for the Armintza fleet

Sunday, February 25, 2024

It is an artisanal vessel that will focus on capturing greenfish, bonito, hake and sea bass.

The Basque inshore fleet has a new fishing vessel in its ranks. This is the Beti Itsasoko, a boat made of polyester by the company Astilleros de Bermeo. The construction of a new boat constitutes news that is as new as it is positive for the Basque fishing sector. And since the fleet of Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa undertook a profound renovation of its ships at the end of the last century and the beginning of the current one, hardly any new additions have been registered. Astilleros de Bermeo built a fishing vessel for shipowners in the port of Donostia in 2020 and the Lekeitio minor gear fleet incorporated a new vessel in 2019 to replace an older one.

Two brothers from Armintza, Iñaki and Jon Mendizabal, owners of the Itxasoko Lorea II, a polyester fishing boat with 25 years of sea experience behind them, decided to take the step to undertake a new construction that has materialized with the recent launching of the Beti Itsasoko.[...]

IN BRIEF - Fishing and aquaculture among the seven economic activities that lead growth in Nicaragua

Sunday, February 25, 2024

The Monthly Index of Economic Activity (IMAE) closed last year with an expansion of 4.8 percent, which gives an idea of where the economic growth rate that the Central Bank of Nicaragua is about to make official will be, whose projection has kept it between 4 and 4.5 percent.
The report on how each of the 16 main activities ended up performing shows that only fishing and aquaculture ended up negative, with a minus 16.7 percent. This despite the fact that in December the activity managed to expand 1.4 percent, "due to the greater production of farmed shrimp and capture of lobster and other fishing products, particularly sea cucumber and crab."
In fact, farmed shrimp exports closed the year with a sharp drop in income. According to data from the Ministry of Development, Industry and Commerce, these shipments decreased last year -25.9 percent in volume and 33.7 percent in value.
Another product closely related to the IMAE of aquaculture and fishing figures is lobster, which together with exports of whole fish managed to grow. Lobster expanded 34.2 percent in volume and 3.8 percent in value. Fish grew 2.8 percent in volume and 3.6 percent in value.
And although these last two seafood products ended up growing, the truth is that income from shipments of farmed shrimp weighs more on the activity with 110.7 million.

Friday, February 23, 2024

U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order on 22 December expanding a U.S. ban on Russian seafood to include imports of Russia-origin seafood products that were processed in third countries.

IN BRIEF - Nigeria’s aquaculture has $296bn annual revenue potential – WAS

Thursday, February 22, 2024

The World Aquaculture Society (WAS), African chapter, in the West African region, says Nigeria’s aquaculture sector has the potential to generate an annual revenue of 296 billion dollars.

Mr Lanre Badmus, Director, West African Region, WAS , said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.

Badmus, who lauded President Bola Tinubu’s administration for creating the Ministry of Blue economy and Marine, noted that if well harnessed the sector would increase income generation for the country.

He explained that the opportunities in the maritime sector if well tapped had the potential of generating resources in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.

“The untapped potential of Nigeria’s blue economy can be worth 296 billion dollars, significantly boosting the overall GDP of the country.

“Knowledge, capacity and operational capability should be explored across five primary innovative themes, which include but not limited to technology, scientific, social, political and governance, physical and economic growth,” he said.

IN BRIEF - Russia threatens UK’s cod and haddock supply as Putin pulls out of decades-old fishing deal

Thursday, February 22, 2024

Moscow says deal has been struck after UK imposes more sanctions on Russia

Russia is pulling out from a landmark fishing deal struck with Britain in 1956 as a response to further sanctions imposed by the UK.

The deal allowed British vessels into the rich fishing grounds of the Barents Sea, the coast of the Kola Peninsula and along the coast of Kolguyev Island.

The agreement was made in London by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev in May 1956 at a turning point in the Cold War.

In the same year, he denounced Josef Stalin, proposed peaceful co-existence with the West and even visited Britain in April.

Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the State Duma lower house of parliament, said in a statement: “When Nikita Khrushchev accepted this deal in 1956, it is difficult to say what guided him but it was definitely not national interest.

“The British need to study some proverbs: ‘Russians harness the horse slowly, but ride it fast’.”

It comes as Britain on Wednesday imposed sanctions on six individuals in charge of the Arctic penal colony where Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny died last week.

Since the invasion began, Britain has repeatedly placed sanctions on Russia with increasing severity. The sanctions were declared as economic war by Duma, despite the country’s economy growing by 3.6 per cent last year.
