Kefalonia takes over Selonda seabass, seabream farm as Greek farming sector reshuffles

Greek group Kefalonia Fisheries (Kefish) took ownership of Selonda's divested seabass and seabream farm in May just months after Andromeda finalized its mega-merger.

The new farm gives Kefish 3,000 metric tons of additional capacity, and more than doubles its existing production, CEO Lara Barazi-Geroulanou told IntraFish, with potential to expand further down the line.

Survey: Travelers Say No to Quarantine Measures on Arrival

According to the survey carried out last month, more than half (58 percent) of those polled said they were “somewhat or very likely” to restrict their initial travel to domestic journeys.

Hindering travel, according to the report, is the possibility of quarantine with 86 percent saying they were “somewhat or very concerned” about being quarantined while traveling and 69 percent claiming that they would not consider traveling at all if it involved a 14-day containment period.

Greek Passenger Ferries to Resume Nationwide Service May 18

In one more sign of the country returning to normalcy, passenger ferry service will resume throughout Greece on Monday, May 18.

However, new guidelines include requiring passengers to wear face masks and to follow social distancing practices.

These guidelines will remain in place until June 15, after which they may be relaxed.

Government backtracks on French quarantine exemption

The government has denied that travellers from France will be exempted from the planned coronavirus quarantine measures.

Under the plans announced last weekend, people arriving from abroad must isolate themselves for two weeks.

Those with nowhere to stay will be obliged to isolate in accommodation provided by the authorities.

Initially, a joint statement from the British and French governments said no quarantine measures would apply.

"No quarantine measures would apply to travellers coming from France at this stage; any measures on either side would be taken in a concerted and reciprocal manner," says the statement, which was published on the government's website on 10 May.

But today, the prime minister's spokesman insisted there was no French exemption.

In his address to the nation on Sunday, the prime minister said: "I am serving notice that it will soon be the time - with transmission significantly lower - to impose quarantine on people coming into this country by air."

The government later clarified that the rules would apply not just to air passengers, but also those arriving by other means of travel such as train or ferry.

Following Mr Johnson's speech, No 10 confirmed a reciprocal deal with the government in Paris meant restrictions would not apply to passengers from France, but that was ahead of today's apparent u-turn.

OK, so BoJo is now saying quarantine will apply to all (er, except certain business people, maybe) whether they arrive by 'plane, train or automobile and there's no exception for the French, or 'turds' as BoJo called them.
