Other Media | Fish Farmer: Index shows slow progress on sustainability and rights

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Three aquaculture operators and an aquafeed producer are among the top five performers in the 2021 Seafood Stewardship Index, reflecting leading practice on traceability, human rights and sustainability. Overall, however, the latest Index finds the seafood industry wanting in terms of disclosure, due diligence and action on issues such as working conditions.

The Thai Union Group, one of the world’s biggest businesses for wild-caught and farmed seafood, was ranked number one thanks to its commitment to traceability and due diligence, governance and social responsibility.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Judge tosses Subway 'fake tuna' lawsuit

Monday, October 11, 2021

A federal judge has dismissed a class-action lawsuit claiming Subway Restaurants’ tuna sandwiches and wraps did not contain any actual tuna.

The lawsuit was filed on 21 January, and subsequently gained national media attention when a New York Times report claimed its lab testing didn’t find evidence of tuna DNA in the company’s sandwiches. At the time, the company defended its tuna products, and DNA testing experts contacted by SeafoodSource confirmed that the tests used by The New York Times wouldn’t have been adequate to detect tuna DNA.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Sailors closer to their families thanks to the flat rate at sea

Monday, October 11, 2021

Communicating from the high seas by satellite phone cost so much that in fishing boats it was only used in exceptional cases. They are still notably more expensive than a call with conventional media, but they have become cheaper as technologies have advanced and, also, competition between operators. And the last great leap has been the flat rate in satellite telecommunications. Breaking distances, it marks a milestone in the social sustainability of fishing because it brings sailors closer than ever to their families and loved ones.
