Norway is looking at measures to overcome what it feels is a "big challenge" in the form of the under-profitability of its shrimp fleet. Fisheries minister Per Sandberg believes an increase in fishing effort is biologically justifiable, and his department is looking at measures to increase efforts in the Barents Sea. Currently, there is a requirement that shrimp trawlers of more than 19.81 meters need a permit to fish in the Barents Sea.
Papua New Guinea (PNG)'s new policy to end discounts on tuna fishing fees will see foreign-owned canneries based on the island forced to close -- some soon -- one source told Undercurrent News. In a recent market update the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) noted PNG fishing industry association president, Sylvester Pokajam, had been claiming the six canneries were threatening to close if they could not continue to get subsidized fishing and be allowed to take fish offshore.
India's shrimp exporters are seeing a quiet market as of mid-January, with little demand meaning prices are flat, even as harvests begin to dry up, sources told Undercurrent News. Early in December, sources had predicted raw material prices would tick up into the new year, as shrimp harvests came to a close. This has not panned out, with prices either flat or trending down in December and so far in January. Neither the US nor China seems to be buying in any great quantities.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
