Other Media | SeafoodSource: Decimated UK shellfish industry scrambling for government help

Thursday, February 15, 2024

Post-Brexit export regulations implemented by the E.U. and domestic red tape have rattled the U.K. shellfish industry, which is scrambling for solutions to lock down a reliable export market, according to the Shellfish Association of Great Britain (SAGB).

U.K. shellfish exporters have been hit hard by an E.U. policy to only allow entry to imported bivalves – such as mussels, oysters, cockles, clams, and scallops – produced E.U.-designated Class-A waters, or purified or depurated prior to shipment.

IN BRIEF - If Mexico does not eliminate restriction on shrimp exports, Honduras will go to the WTO

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

The minister of the Secretariat of Economic Development (SDE), Fredis Cerrato, announced that if Mexico does not remove the restrictions on shrimp exports to the state of Sinaloa, Honduras would go to the World Trade Organization (WTO).
“If it is not changed to this extent, we would have to go to an international body like the WTO, we want to avoid it because it takes too long,” he declared.
Cerrato explained that they will wait for the National Association of Aquaculturists of Honduras (ANDAH) to present the document requesting the elimination of the restriction.
The border has been closed for a week and has caused great losses, because there are already farms that are not operating, especially small producers, he commented.
The official indicated that the farms do not have large capacities to export and fill containers, they only maximize employment and allow entry to a significant number of workers in the southern zone.
On Monday and Tuesday of the week that has just begun, it is expected that the document presented by the legal representative of ANDAH will be in the hands of a judge.

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

The Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries has developed area-based modeling for five main commodities to accelerate the development of sustainable aquaculture and boost the production of Indonesia's main export commodities.

"The development prioritizes the principles of environmental sustainability as well as the absorption of local workers," said Tb Haeru Rahayu, Director General of Aquaculture, in a statement from his ministry on Tuesday.

"It is hoped that from the modeling development program and revitalization of shrimp ponds, there will be an increase in Indonesian shrimp exports to US$2.1 billion in 2024," he added.

Rahayu said that modeling for seaweed cultivation has also been developed in Wakatobi district, Southeast Sulawesi.

IN BRIEF - First Nations group criticizes federal fisheries department

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

An Indigenous-led group is criticizing what it says is the "gross mismanagement" of aquaculture in British Columbia by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), as it calls for a separation of its regulatory and promotional responsibilities.

The First Nations Wild Salmon Alliance says the department is mired in conflict of interest stemming from its dual role, which the group's chairman Bob Chamberlin described as like "marking your own homework."

Chamberlin says the group wants the department to stick to its primary obligation of looking after the environment and fisheries, and to implement "a truly independent" scientific body to help inform government decisions affecting marine life in B.C.

A spokesperson for the DFO said in a statement that scientific integrity guides and shapes how it generates advice to inform decision making, including through impartial peer review.

IN BRIEF - Report: West Africa Considered a Future Fisheries Conflict Hotspot

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

Eleven West African countries are designated as future fisheries conflict hot spots. These places could see clashes over marine resources in the next six years due to fish stocks depleted by illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

According to a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) report, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria, the Republic of the Congo, Senegal, and São Tomé and Príncipe are highly likely to experience future conflict between foreign industrial trawlers, artisanal fishermen and local fishing communities.

Other such designated areas on the continent are Mozambique and Somalia.

China, which commands the world’s largest distant-water fishing fleet, is by far the worst IUU fishing actor in Africa and across the globe. Of the top 10 companies engaged in illegal fishing globally, eight are from China, according to the Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC).
