In a bid to ensure the production of canned tuna in the region meets the required standard, specialised training has been organised in Levuka by the European Union-supported Development of Tuna Fisheries in the Pacific Project (DevFish2). The 18 participants include cannery and fish inspectors from Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands who are part of the thermal processing and regulatory audit training. DevFish2 is implemented by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and DevFish officer Jonathan Manieva said the training was timely and critical as the tuna processing industry in the Pacific region experienced growth.

The Permanent Secretary (PS) in the Ministry of Livestock Development and Fisheries, Dr Yohana Budeba, has asked the public to use sea food, such as sardines, to fight malnutrition. The PS was speaking in Dar es Salaam yesterday (27 November) at the opening of Fish for Trade Awards - Commending Friendly Fishing in Tanzania. Organized by the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC) Smartfish Programme with support from the European Union’s 10th European Development Fund, the phase II project brought together various participants from across the country.

Next month, the EU is to take a decision on extension of the sanctions against Russia. According to various sources, the EU is preparing a six-month extension. The Russian inspection service has made a video about the service's working methods. Also, pears were intercepted that are possibly illegal, the inspection launched an additional investigation. Russia is importing more from Serbia. Turkish export hardly seems to profit from the boycott.
