Ground-breaking illegal fishing accord soon to enter into force | Aquaculture Directory

Ground-breaking illegal fishing accord soon to enter into force | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
FAO Port State Measures Agreement set to become binding law 

Illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing is about to become much more difficult thanks to the imminent entry into force of the Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA), a ground-breaking international accord championed by FAO. 

Now that the required threshold has been reached, with 30 Members having formally deposited their instruments of adherence, the count down to the entry into force of the PSMA is underway and on 5 June 2016 the world's first ever binding international accord specifically targeting IUU fishing will become international law. 

Collectively, the 29 countries and the European Union, which signed as a single party, have formally committed themselves through their instruments of adhesion to the Agreement account for more than 62 percent of worldwide fish imports and 49 percent of fish exports, which were $133 billion and $139 billion respectively, in 2013.

ASC invites stakeholders to comment on Group Certification methodology | Aquaculture Directory

ASC invites stakeholders to comment on Group Certification methodology | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The ASC has published the latest draft of the Group Certification methodology and is currently seeking public comment on the new approach. 

Public consultation period: 20 May - 20 June 2016 

As the majority of global aquaculture production is done by small to medium-sized farmers, it is vital to ensure that the ASC programme evolves to accommodate farms of all sizes. Group certification is an opportunity to expand the number of farms eligible to participate in the certification scheme. 

The project is a key milestone in the ASC's mission to move the industry towards environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

Conservation group’s claims slammed | Aquaculture Directory

Conservation group’s claims slammed | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
A campaign launched by a Northern Hemisphere conservation group targeting the New Zealand fishing industry is based on inaccurate allegations, Seafood New Zealand Chief Executive Tim Pankhurst says. 

Nabu International is calling on fast food chain McDonald’s to drop New Zealand fish to “save Maui dolphins”. “McDonald’s use New Zealand hoki. Maui dolphins are not found in the deepwater where hoki are caught, Mr Pankhurst says. 

“Nabu claimed a Maui dolphin death through fishing was suppressed. This is false. We invite them to correct the record. 

“Conservation measures for the prevention of Maui dolphin captures are working, with no sightings or captures of the dolphin in more than 1961 observer days since 2012.

Friend of The Sea Launches new International sustainable shipping standard | Aquaculture Directory

Friend of The Sea Launches new International sustainable shipping standard | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Friend of the Sea has recently launched the new international certification for sustainable shipping. Two large global shipping companies, GreenSea and Seatrade, audited by the third party auditor BMT Surveys, were found compliant with the Friend of the Sea criteria and have achieved the certification. 

“Merchant shipping is currently carrying more than 90% of international trade. Although some shipping companies have already implemented several strict sustainability measures, there are still many of them which don’t even comply with the minimum requirements,” explains Paolo Bray, Founder and Director of Friend of the Sea. 

“This is why an international certification for sustainable shipping – such as Friend of the Sea - is fundamental for producers and retailers to easily select environmentally friendly shipping companies. This is even more important for companies which claim sustainability of their seafood’s origin.”

NY-based fund takes control of Andromeda fish farming | Aquaculture Directory

NY-based fund takes control of Andromeda fish farming | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Andromeda is set to be the first Greek aquaculture company to be sold to an international fund, and it is believed that the local fish farming sector’s two biggest players, Selonda and Nireus, may be fated to follow a similar course. 

On Monday Global Finance, the group controlled by Angelos Plakopitas, announced the sale of 90 percent of its holding in Andromeda to the Amerra Capital Management LLC fund, which is based in New York. 

Although the price has not been announced, market sources cited by Undercurrent News – an international website specialising in seafood developments – say that this amounts to eight times Andromeda’s profits in 2015. 

The Greek company’s earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation amounted to 6.5 million euros in 2014, while the 2015 financial results have not yet been issued. On a group level, sales amounted to 111.8 million euros in 2014.
