Based on a proven Incat Crowther design, the 25-metre catamaran has a range of innovative features and equipment to help its crew monitor and protect sensitive coastal areas while having minimal impact on the environment.

Designed to accommodate 12 crew and 16 passengers in six sleeping quarters, the main deck features three of the vessel’s sleeping quarters, five bathrooms, a large mess, an outdoor dining area, galley and a conveniently located storeroom.

The upper deck features an office and operations control room with a day head and an ensuite cabin for the captain. The large wheelhouse has been designed to optimise the captain’s line of sight, while the upper deck also provides storage for a tender and jet ski – both readily available for fast deployment via a strategically positioned crane.

The General Secretariat of Fisheries has summoned the Mediterranean fleet to explain its plan to recover at least 6% of days of fishing activity in the Mediterranean compared to the cut adopted by the Council of Minister of Fisheries last December, within the application of the Multiannual Plan for the Mediterranean.

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

Australian seafood companies are increasingly targeting the U.K. market following the free trade agreement (FTA) between the two countries, which entered into effect 31 May 2023.

The FTA brought an immediate end to tariffs on many Australian seafood exports, resulting in a “significant, positive impact” on most product categories, with savings realized on both importer and supplier sides, according to Ana Nishnianidze, the Australian Trade and Investment Commission’s (Austrade) trade and investment commissioner for the U.K. and Ireland.

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

In the coming weeks, research will begin at the University of Maryland facilities where the use of Bioled photoperiod systems and remote control technologies is being considered.

The Chilean company Bioled has R&D as a fundamental pillar of its work. This is how, throughout its 18 years of life, it has led 18 research projects (practically one per year) and of which eight have been fully financed by the company and ten have been co-financed by Corfo instruments.

As part of its international expansion plan and analyzing the characteristics of soil cultivation systems, Bioled has started a research project with the University of Maryland (United States) to study how irradiance interferes in the control of growth and maturity . early in the culture of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in full-cycle RAS systems.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: 90% of the value of trawl catches is concentrated in 50% of EU fishing grounds

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Fishing with mobile bottom contact gear in European waters is spatially limited to “basic fishing grounds” that concentrate 90% of the catch value and cover 50% of European marine areas (Baltic Sea, the Great North Sea, the Celtic Sea and the Bay of Biscay and the Iberian coastal areas), taking into account data from the period 2017-2022. However, the spatial location of these fishing grounds – starting from a grid cell definition of 0.05º latitude × 0.05º longitude, from 25 km2 to 36ºN to less than 13 km2 to 66. ºN–, varies from year to year, has concluded the ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea) in a new advisory carried out on behalf of the European Commission.
