Shorter scallop season,” said Kevin Stoltz, president of the Pacific Marine Fisheries Society. “It was disappointing to see some of the catch that had been in their 바카라사이트system before the storm.”
The scallop fishery in Japan includes about 700,000 tons, or about 5 percent of the annual catch. The scallops are caught primarily in waters that are very shallow and cold.
About 60 percent of the catch from Japan in January was far larger than the typical catch of the same date in 2008, the International Ocean Federation’s Global Marine Outlook database showed.
According to data provided by the IWLC’s IJN Gro바카라사이트up, Japan has about 90,000 to 100,000 catch in this season. The numbers from Japan’s northern regions were much lower, but there were some in areas outside of Japan, such as Indonesia.
Japan, however, was unable to maintain a high level of catch in recent months due to high currents. It was the first time this season Japan had been unable to maintain a minimum level of catch, according to the IJN Group’s Global Marine Outlook d바카라사이트atabase.
The region, which is known as the Pacific, is the largest in the world, accounting for about 90 percent of the world’s fish species.
