The city of Zadar in Croatia has a long history of tuna fishing, especially in bluefin. Many of its best-skilled fishermen have spread across the globe. Croatia intends to reconnect with its diaspora at the upcoming Meeting G2.5 conference which will be held in November 2019 in Zagreb.
Croatian-owned businesses from around the world will be present at the conference. Also, former Army General Ante Gotovina, now a successful entrepreneur, will give an inside view into his bluefin farming company, Pelagos, from Zadar via a live-stream connection. The farm harvests young bluefin which are bred under controlled conditions in underwater cages.
Philippines’ 21st National Tuna Congress themed ‘The Tuna Industry: Embracing Technologies and Sustainable Strategies’ will be held from September 4-6. The event will take place at the SM Trade Halls in General Santos City.
The three-day conference will be kicked off with the 21st Tuna Congress Caravan making the rounds in city streets beginning at the General Santos Fish Port in Tambler, in the early morning of Sept. 4, 2019, and finishing at SM City General Santos for the 21st Tuna Congress Mass. Thereafter, the 21st Tuna Congress Trade Exhibit will be opened to the public.
The main topics of the congress will be on the following: Electronic Monitoring, Surveillance, and Control; Catch Documentation and Traceability; Emerging Technologies for Processors; and Commodity, Market and Stock Assessment.
Crusoé Foods, a Spanish company located on the northern coast of the Brazilian state of Ceará in São Gonçalo do Amarante, wants to maintain the agreements made with the country’s government to expand its business in the region. This would allow the company to build a factory each for tuna packaging and fishmeal production.
Maia Júnior, Secretary of Economic Development of Brazil, will agree to the new plans if the country is appropriately compensated.
Crusoé Foods is a brand owned by the Spanish group Jealsa Rianxeira S.A.U., which manufactures and markets canned seafood globally.
