IN BRIEF - Global squid fishing/expanding operations in unmanaged waters

Monday, March 13, 2023

Yearly operation of squid fishing boats (2017-2020)

An analysis of satellite imagery and automatic identification system (AIS) vessel tracking data shows that squid fishing vessels are expanding their operations in the world's uncontrolled seas. On the 10th, US time, the results of the research were published in the US scientific journal "Science Advances." 86% of squid fishing vessels operate outside exclusive economic zones (EEZs) or in waters not managed by Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs), reducing fishing effort by 68% in the four years surveyed from 2017 to 2020. It is said that it is increasing. Although it does not fall under direct illegal operations, it points out the need for comprehensive global countermeasures against management gaps in operations, including the negative impact on resources.

Researchers led by Professor Catherine Seto of the University of California, Santa Cruz have investigated the current state of the world's squid fishing industry using the Global Fishing Watch (GFW), the University of Wollongong's Australian National Center for Marine Resources Security, and Fisheries Research.·Compiled as a thesis in cooperation with the Education Agency (FRA). We track and analyze the movement of fishing lights using satellite image sensors (VIIRS) that can detect nighttime light (visible and infrared), and the movement of squid fishing boats around the world from AIS data.

IN BRIEF - Joint development of crab sticks that do not use surimi

Monday, March 13, 2023

A new series of topical next-generation seafood "like a fish"! Joint development of plant-based “Maru Kanikama”

Azuma Foods Co., Ltd., entered into a business alliance with Fujimitsu Co., Ltd. for the sale of a new series that pursues not only commitment but also taste, Kamaboko) was jointly developed.

Is the expression "tastes better than the real thing" correct? Kani-flavored kamaboko (commonly known as Kanikama) is always cited as a representative example of processed food alternatives, but when asked about the industry, it seems that there is a supply shortage of fish paste, which is the raw material. The shortage of raw materials for "surimi" accompanying the global increase in demand for marine products gave us the motivation to "challenge" the concept of the "Maru Fish" series, which aims to provide sustainable products.

Fujimitsu Co., Ltd. is a long-established kamaboko manufacturing company that has been in business for over 130 years. They have outstanding manufacturing technology and experience cultivated over many years, but they cannot survive without a stable supply of surimi raw materials. When thinking about delicious crab stick products looking ahead to the next 100 years, they decided to try to develop and manufacture “just like crab sticks” .

Crab? ! Crab bite? plant base? ? I made "Kanikama" with 100% vegetable base.
