Focus on Fishing and Aquaculture


We take another closer look at the global fishing and aquaculture industry, particularly on the many types of vessels therein. Our reviewed vessels for this week will include a fish farm workboat and a seiner/trawler for Norwegian customers and a new type of harvesting facility built for China’s offshore waters.

Trawling • Longlining • Seining • Potting • Aquaculture • Mariculture

Also featured are three new fishing vessels for operators based in Russia. These are designed for catching various species from herring and pollock to crabs and shrimp along the country’s northern and eastern regions.

The fishing and aquaculture industry continues to demonstrate innovation to help ensure food security, and readers are assured that key examples of this innovation will comprise some of the regular features on Baird Maritime.
