IN BRIEF - 'Space octopus' sold at a store in Oita Airport, developed by 'Bakusou SAKI'

Tuesday, May 30, 2023

The founder of this collaboration product is Mr. “Bakusou Saki”, who belongs to Yoshimoto Kogyo and is active as a “desert runner” who continues to challenge desert marathons around the world. She moved to Oita in 2014 as part of Yoshimoto Kogyo's "Living Entertainer" project, and is engaged in community-based performing arts and community contribution activities.

In 2019, when he suffered from altitude sickness at a race held in the highlands of Chile, which was his second attempt at a desert marathon, he thought, "If I'm going to die anyway, I'd rather eat meat and fish." A desire to develop portable meals arose.

Seeing the news that Oita Airport was certified as the first spaceport in Asia, I sensed the potential for the future, and moved from Oita City, where I lived until then, to Kunisaki City. After 2 years of development and research with the cooperation of local Kunisaki Bussan, we commercialized "Space Octopus His Spacy Flavor".

IN BRIEF - IUU fishing remains major maritime threat in Gulf of Guinea – Expert

Tuesday, May 30, 2023

Barthelémy Blédé, a key Expert in the Support to West Africa Integrated Maritime Security Project, said Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) fishing remains one of the most feared maritime threats in the Gulf of Guinea.

This is due to the detrimental effects of IUU on the economy, food security, employment, and marine environment, as well as its links to transnational organised crime, he said.

Mr Blede said this in a presentation on IUU fishing at the ongoing two-week course on Maritime Security and Transnational Organised Crime (MSTOC), organized by the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) with support from the German Government.

He indicated that the actions devoted to IUU fishing were thwarted by many challenges, including weak cooperation, a lack of transparency and corruption.[continues...]

IN BRIEF - Fishy situation in local aquaculture industry

Tuesday, May 30, 2023

Unpaid suppliers, fish cargoes that go to waste or are unsuitable when they reach their destination and are forced to be sold at lower prices, successive management changes and funds whose fate is unknown are just some of the elements that paint the picture today at Avramar.

This is the so-called “national champion” created four years ago, after the acquisition by Andromeda Seafood of Selonda and Nireus, with the participation of the Amerra and Mubadala funds.

A potential collapse of the company would have much greater consequences for the entire Greek fish farming industry and the sectors involved, ranging from suppliers to transport companies.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: 'Incredibly high' inflation adding GBP 833 to average UK family’s grocery bill, impacting seafood sales

Tuesday, May 30, 2023

The rate of inflation for prices of seafood sold at retail in the U.K. continues to rise, with chilled seafood plummeting as a result, and even shelf-stable, or ambient seafood, suffering a decline in sales.

The rate went from 1.2 percent in September 2022 to 6.8 percent in March 2023, Watson noted, citing NieslenIQ data. As a result, U.K. retail seafood sales dropped 1.2 percent to GBP 4.08 billion (USD 5.1 billion, EUR 4.7 billion) from the end of Q1 2022 through Q1 2023, according to Richard Watson, market insight analyst at Grimsby, U.K.-based trade organization Seafish. Overall seafood sales plummeted 7.5 percent by volume over that period.
