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 the countdown to the celebration of World Oceans Day on June 8, the two institutions formalize a strategic alliance to promote sustainable fishing and the preservation of marine life. The BIOPARC of Fuengirola, Valencia and the Gijón Aquarium become platforms for education and awareness of the population towards responsible consumption.
Madrid - As we enter the days leading up to the celebration of World Oceans Day, on June 8, the BIOPARC Foundation and MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) have signed a collaboration agreement to promote sustainable fishing and ocean conservation . This alliance is one more step in the BIOPARC's commitment to the preservation of nature and wildlife, the promotion of environmentally friendly practices and the protection of marine ecosystems. The agreement formalized by both organizations will promote the responsible consumption of fish and seafood, through the dissemination of information on the MSC blue seal and good environmental practices. To this end, joint initiatives will be carried out to raise awareness and educate the public on the importance of opting for food of certified origin, highlighting the positive impact it has on marine biodiversity.
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...]
Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and FisheriesFishery and aquaculture production statistics
The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries released the fishery and aquaculture production statistics for 2022 on the 30th. The production volume (approximate figure) of the fisheries and aquaculture industry decreased by 7.5% from the previous year to 3,858,600 tons. It broke the 4 million ton mark, breaking the record low since the current survey began in 1956.

In the marine aquaculture industry, the harvest of yellowtails decreased by 15% from the previous year to 110 tons.[continues...]
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.
Chile: Low prevalence of bacterial diseases and sea lice are characteristics of salmon farming in this region, which aims for a premium product, based on sustainable production.
The salmon farming industry is an active protagonist of the economy of the Magallanes Region. For many, salmon farming is an opportunity for well-being, for a present and a future that translates into quality of life.
According to the report "Radiography of the Magellan salmon farming industry", prepared by the Magallanes Salmon Farmers Association in mid-2022, it is indicated that the salmon industry in that region has 3,665 direct collaborators

Aquaculture has seen enormous progress in recent decades and is destined to produce the majority of the ever-growing demand for aquatic food.
The sector now needs an updated set of governing principles that ensure that it expands and intensifies, embracing modern technologies, in a way that is environmentally and socially responsible, economically viable, and able to meet the needs of present and future generations. This need is outlined in a set of articles published this week by leading experts in the field, arising from the latest Global Conference on Aquaculture Millennium +20 held in Shanghai
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.
