IN BRIEF - Argentine Naval Prefecture detected two ships that were sailing from Malvinas without authorization

Monday, April 15, 2024

As part of the work carried out by the Argentine Naval Prefecture, as the national Maritime Authority, to monitor and control the country's maritime spaces, its coast guard GC-28 Prefecto Derbes, in collaboration with its Maritime Traffic and Coast Guard Vessel Services, achieved the detection of two ships that sailed from the Malvinas Islands without the corresponding Argentine authorization.

With this context, the Force warned that two vessels ("BEAGLE", Chilean flag, apparently towing the fishing vessel "AN FONG NO.136", Taiwan flag) were sailing at reduced speed within the country's Exclusive Economic Zone, through from the city of Comodoro Rivadavia, 245 nautical miles from the coast.

The aforementioned vessels have the particularity of having set sail from the Malvinas Islands simultaneously, with identical routes, which suggests that the tugboat could be providing assistance to the fishing vessel “AN FONG NO.136” (IMO 9777979).

It should be noted that, according to decree 256/10, consistent with Ordinance 01-10 of the Prefecture, any ship or naval device that intends to transit between ports located in the Argentine continental territory and ports located in the Malvinas Islands, Georgias del South and South Sandwich must request prior authorization issued by the competent national authority.

IN BRIEF - Farmed coho salmon from Kuji starts at 20% higher price

Monday, April 15, 2024

  • Increased production from previous plan to 660 tons Iwate
  • First shipment of farmed coho salmon “Kuji-raised Amber Salmon” this year Kuji City

Approximately 1,500 "Kuji-raised Amber Salmon" coho salmon farmed off the coast of Kuji City were shipped for the first time this year.

"Kuji Raised Amber Salmon'' is coho salmon raised through an aquaculture project that the Kuji City Fisheries Cooperative Association has been working on for the past three years.

They were raised in a cage set up in Kuji Bay, and at 6 a.m. at the fishing port, a boat returned from the cage and landed about 1,500 fish.

The landed coho salmon was about 40 centimeters in size, and because it was grown in a natural environment, it was full of fat, and was handed over to a seafood processing company for 900 yen per kilogram.

Fishing cooperatives in various regions are starting to farm salmon. The Kuji City Fisheries Association is also increasing production of this "Amber Salmon" and promoting branding, with the aim of shipping 660 tons by July this year.

Satoru Umanai, head of the private aquaculture section of the Kuji City Fisheries Cooperative Association, said, "We were worried about the effects of the continued rough weather and low seawater temperatures, but we are happy to see that they are growing well.''
