Focus on Fishing and Aquaculture

Focus on Fishing and Aquaculture

Fish farming vessels dominate this week's featured vessels for review. Two of the vessels are aquaculture support workboats for operators in Scotland while one is a large-capacity fish breeding vessel that a Chinese conglomerate will deploy in offshore waters close to home and even in other parts of the world. Also featured is a shrimp trawler that a Spanish owner will operate in Argentine waters.

Trawling • Longlining • Seining • Potting • Aquaculture • Mariculture

Lastly, Baird Maritime will once again feature an excerpt from Swimming with Fishes, the published detailed memoirs of noted fishery biologist Dr Bob Iversen. As with the other chapters of his excellent book, Dr Iversen shares his personal experiences and insights on the broader world of marine life and related sciences.

Remember to visit Baird Maritime regularly to get the latest on the global fishing and aquaculture industries.
