Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Europe reduces the means of production and Spain suffers the greatest consequences

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

The European Union governs its fishing activity based on the Common Fisheries Policy. The initial objectives of this policy were to preserve fish stocks, protect the marine environment, ensure the economic viability of the Union's fleets and provide consumers with quality food. The community contribution is being lost and imports already reach 70% of the supply on the market. The successive reforms have not achieved their objectives and the means of production continue to decline. The global panorama does not correspond to the community panorama.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Shaken up but not stopped

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Icelandic fish farmer Matorka has overcome losses and damage caused by volcanic earthquakes, although it may yet choose to leave its treasured site

There is a lot for fish farmer Matorka to like about Grindavik. The water it extracts from boreholes in the volcanic rock at its land-based farm on the Icelandic peninsula is warmed by lava to almost 10°C, perfect for the Arctic char it grows.

The site is also supplied with clean geothermal electricity, and it is close to an airport and a seaport for easy export.

(emptyOther Media | EuropaAzul: Advances to address fish discard transform the industry

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

New research on the use of waste is transforming the food and cosmetics industries, promoting the circular economy and creating new jobs.

In the food and cosmetics industry, sustainable resource management and waste minimization are increasingly priorities. A paradigmatic example of this trend is the innovative approach to the reuse of fish waste, which could revolutionize not only these industries, but also contribute significantly to the circular economy.

IN BRIEF - NOAA: 'What Happened to All the Alaska Snow Crabs?'

Monday, April 29, 2024

A few years ago, snow crab populations in Alaska collapsed. Hear how NOAA biologists solved the mystery of what happened to them

In October 2022, the Bering Sea snow crab season was canceled for the first time in U.S. history. Snow crab populations crashed unexpectedly and officials had no choice but to close the fishery. The next year, it happened again. 

The decline of roughly 10 billion crabs hit fishermen hard and the entire industry was impacted—from distributors, to processors, to consumers. The value of the fishery went from $227 million to $0 in just 2 years. Making it all the more confounding was that snow crabs were abundant just a few years prior. So ... what happened?

In our new episode, we'll speak with Dr. Cody Szuwalski, a research fishery biologist and stock assessment scientist at NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center. He is the lead author of a study examining the snow crab collapse. Tune in as we hear how NOAA biologists cracked the case of the mysterious Alaska snow crab collapse, what likely caused it, and why it matters.

IN BRIEF - Dirk Parlevliet (1926-2024)

Monday, April 29, 2024

KATWIJK - From the very beginning to the large global fishing group that Katwijkse Parlevliet & Van der Plas has become, Dirk Parlevliet has been able to experience it all. He passed away 'in peace' last Wednesday, aged 97.

The story has now become part of Katwijk's fishing history. In 1949, Parlevliet and his partners Jan and Dirk van der Plas started a herring business with nothing more than an old truck and a few tens of euros in start-up capital. In 1959 the first ship was purchased: the KW 171 'Jan Maria', with a number and name that would regularly appear in the shipping company's history. This also applies to P&P's first freezer trawler, which came into service in 1967: the KW 170 'Annie Hillina', named after the wives of Dirk van der Plas and Dirk Parlevliet.

Parlevliet was a striking, energetic personality, who, with an entrepreneurial spirit and the necessary courage and flair, helped lay the foundation for what would become one of the largest fishing companies in the world. The new management, with son Diek as the current CEO, took office in the 1980s, after which the group began an even more rapid growth and expanded far beyond national borders. Parlevliet senior remained very involved in the case until the very end. He played a prominent role at the launching of the BX 792 'Jan Maria' early last year.

Co-founder Dirk van der Plas died in 1999. Both names continued to live in the current KW 172 'Dirk Dirk'. The new trawler under Katwijk's number that will soon be launched in Turkey will again be named 'Annie Hillina'.

IN BRIEF - Fiji and Japan renew partnership for sustainable fisheries

Monday, April 29, 2024

Fiji and Japan reaffirmed their longstanding partnership in the fisheries sector with a significant equipment donation and pledge for future collaboration.

Japan handed over three excavators, three trucks valued at $1.5 million to the Ministry of Fisheries and Forestry.

Japanese Ambassador Rokuichiro Michii also announced a $10 million commitment to procure a new research vessel and ice machine for the Ministry, bolstering food security initiatives across Fiji.

Minister for Fisheries and Forestry Kalaveti Ravu emphasized the role of aquaculture in ensuring the long-term viability of the fisheries sector.

“The Ministry has always believed that aquaculture holds the key to ensuring fisheries sustainability and solidifying fisheries development which can provide sustainable and consistent income from our aquaculture commodities.”

Ravu noted the potential for the partnership to extend beyond Fiji’s borders.

“This resource will enhance the ability of aquaculture farming communities to put food on the table and mete the economic needs , furthermore this assistance will boost fisheries and forestry development activities in neighboring communities and open opportunities for further collaboration.”

Ravu says this collaborative effort between Fiji and Japan positions them to make significant strides in achieving sustainable fisheries practices and ensuring food security in the region.
