The environmental organization WWF has published a report on the occasion of World Food Day prepared by the NGO with the collaboration of Agrocampus Ouest (France), the University of British Columbia (Canada), the Charles Darwin Foundation (Galapagos) and the Institute Nacional de Pesca (Ecuador) which reveals that "half of the world's fish production is at risk due to the climate crisis." I can see the full report here (in English).
This is because small-scale fishers, who account for half of the world's fish production, "are disproportionately affected by the consequences of a warmer ocean."
The coronavirus crisis, now surpassing 10 months in length in China, is accelerating longer-term trends that have been developing in the country’s seafood marketplace for nearly a decade.
China typically sends millions of tourists around the world during the National Day holiday, which took place 1 October this year. But with international travel restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of those who typically would have traveled abroad stayed home, visiting local tourist attractions instead.

A company that uses fish cage collars to create floating solar energy plants is planning to list on Norway’s Merkur Market to raise money for expansion.
Ocean Sun has previously conducted tests of the concept at a salmon farm run by Scottish Sea Farms co-owner Lerøy on Osterøy outside Bergen.
The company’s aim was to provide supplementary clean power for fish farms that don’t have access to shore power and are reliant on greenhouse gas generating diesel generators. Ocean Sun uses a cage collar with a plastic sheet stretched across which supports the solar panels.

ICES has recommended that there should be no fishing for capelin in the Barents Sea next year. In compliance with the Norwegian-Russian harvesting regulation, the Norway-Russia Fisheries Commission will set a zero quota.
Acoustic survey work in the Barents Sea is the key tool for evaluating the state of the stock, and researchers at the Institute of Marine Research estimate a spawning stock of capelin at 545,000 tonnes. Taking into account predation by cod and other species, as well as other factors, the researchers have to forecast how much will be left by 1st April – and for next year the outlook isn’t seen as strong enough to support a fishery.

Aller Aqua has discovered a new way of feeding fry which improves growth and reduces early mortality and deformities.
The importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in the nutrition of larvae and fry is well-documented and PUFAs have been a focus area when developing fry feeds at Aller Aqua.
Phospholipids, derived from krill oil or purified fish oil, are essential for maintaining membrane homeostasis, gene expression, hormone synthesis, neurological development and inflammatory response and research has shown that PUFAs presented as phospholipids are digested and metabolised more efficiently than PUFAs in other lipid classes.
