    Scottish Producers Organisations have agreed with Scot Gov to restrict vessels fishing activity. We see foreign static gear vessels gaming the situation by moving into the areas vacated by Scottish vessels. Gaming at this time is beyond belief and very wrong

    The Council of Argentine Fishing Companies (CEPA) reports that 55 crew of Solimeno SA’s trawler Luca Mario have been tested for Covid-19 and given the all-clear.

    CEPA has been making efforts to make this known, seeking to reassure the general public, as well as putting the minds of crews and their families at rest.

    In Argentina fishing is rated as an ‘essential activity’ and as such is expected to continue operation through the pandemic. CEPA states that it will continue to comply with strict requirements, working to protocols agreed with industry unions.

    41 of Luca Mario’s 55 crew were brought in by coach from outside Mar del Plata, and the protocols in place include provision of secure accommodation for crew members not resident locally during the pre-departure period.

    ‘Tests were carried out in compliance with the protocols agreed with the authorities and unions of the sector, which recommend that crews working in the deep-sea freezer sector undergo health checks, and this includes screening to rule out the presence of Covid-19,’ a CEPA spokesman said.

    Seafood pivotal for rebuilding Norway’s economy

    The seafood industry is expected to play a key role in getting Norway’s economy and workforce up and running again in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    ‘For Norway and other seafood nations, this is a real opportunity for a blue revolution and illustrate the real meaning of sustainability – social, economic and environmentally. Seafood can be an important part of the solution in terms of rebuilding communities, creating jobs and responsible and low-carbon footprint food production,’ said Norwegian Seafood Council CEO Renate Larsen.

    She commented that as society is now slowly gradually opening up after successfully curbing the spread of the virus in Norway, the job of how to get the economy back on track has started in earnest. In the past week, Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Fisheries Minister Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen have been meeting representatives from the seafood industry to discuss what role it should play in rebuilding the economy.

    During the Corona crisis, the Norwegian seafood industry has been fully operational, as it is classified as essential for food security. Exports of salmon, cod and other seafoods have also been relatively stable, but with large differences between species, products, and markets.

    ‘The world is awakening to a new world order after this crisis, and we will feel the repercussions for a long time, both in terms of economic uncertainty and in our everyday choices. But the world will move on, we still have a mountain to climb when it comes to tackling climate change and food security, and investments into responsible seafood production is part of the solution,’ Renate Larsen said.

    ‘In Norway we are in a very fortunate position to be in the financial situation to boost industry and to get new and sustainable projects off the ground in the seafood sector quickly after this crisis. It can be a huge opportunity for the seafood industry, not just in Norway, but also in many of our important export markets, where jobs are created in processing, distribution and sales.’
