Other Media | SeafoodSource: Seafood Industry Australia CEO Jane Lovell resigns

Thursday, April 09, 2020

Seafood Industry Australia (SIA), the national body that represents the wild catch, aquaculture, and post-harvest sectors, announced on 9 April the resignation of its chief executive officer, Jane Lovell.

Lovell was hired as the group’s inaugural CEO in September 2017. The industry group gave no reason for the departure, but said the resignation was “effective immediately.” On her LinkedIn page, Lovell is listed as the CEO of Melbourne, Australia-based Organic Systems and Solutions, a private company working on development and certification of organic products, but neither Lovell nor the company confirmed the appointment.

The resignation comes at a difficult time for SIA’s members, as the coronavirus crisis has resulted in the evaporation of exports to China, a top destination for Australian seafood, as well as a collapse of prices in the domestic market. Lovell had helped lead negotiations with the federal and various state governments to get help for industry members. Earlier this month, Australia’s government approved an AUD 110 million (USD 67 million, EUR 61 million) aid package focused on keeping the industry afloat and helping it to revive its exports.

Other Media | FishFocus: Scottish fleet Successfully completes annual blue Whiting fishery

Thursday, April 09, 2020

Scottish fleet successfully completes annual blue whiting fishery. The Scottish fleet has successfully completed its annual blue whiting fishery in the North Atlantic to the West of Ireland and Scotland.

About a quarter of the Scots pelagic fleet engages in the fishery each year, with catches landed into Killybegs in Donegal, and Peterhead. Some of the Peterhead landings were destined for the human consumption market in West Africa.

For Scottish mackerel and herring fishermen, blue whiting forms an important annual eight week fishery that generally starts in February. For those factories that process blue whiting, it fills-in what would otherwise be a quiet period when there is no mackerel and herring fishing going on.

Blue whiting is technically difficult fishery to operate in, and skippers need to exhibit great skill and perseverance when fishing.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Visionary fish vet helps Faroes stamp out Covid-19

Thursday, April 09, 2020

A veterinary scientist in the Faroe Islands has been credited with helping to halt the spread of Covid-19 in the archipelago by adapting tests previously used to detect infectious salmon anaemia (ISA).

The archipelago has had no reported deaths from the virus and this has, in part, been attributed to the work of Debes Christiansen, the head of department at the National Reference Laboratory for Fish and Animal Diseases, who adapted his lab to undertake tests for coronavirus back in January.

Since then, the islands have managed to test almost 10 percent of the 61,000 residents. And, by quarantining all those who had been in contact with those who tested positive, the spread of the virus has been halted.

Christiansen's story has now been celebrated in the mainstream media around the world and he told the Guardian that adapting the ISA test for humans was fairly straightforward.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Cooke brings Invergordon feed facility back into production

Thursday, April 09, 2020

PRODUCTION at the former Skretting feed plant in Invergordon has been restarted under its new owners, Cooke Aquaculture.

The Canadian company acquired the site on the Inverbreakie Industrial Estate in September 2019 following its closure in April last year.

Through its subsidiary, Northeast Nutrition Scotland, Cooke has worked closely with former employees to resume operations at the mill.

The company revealed that production of fish feed restarted in January, with the first batch rolling off the production lines and delivered within four months of it acquiring the plant.
Northeast Nutrition Scotland has re-hired 22 people, most of whom were made redundant when the mill closed last year. In all, around 100 jobs were lost, and more staff are expected to be taken on as production steps up.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Drive to mantein seafood production and exports

Thursday, April 09, 2020

In the face of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Norwegian wild fisheries and aquaculture are both considered of key importance. According to the Norwegian Seafood Council, government, industry and the transport sector are working to maintain the production and supply of seafood from Norway.

‘We have seen a real drive to keep Norwegian seafood production and exports going amid the Corona pandemic. Producers and their customers all over the world are finding solutions and overcoming hurdles to deliver nutritious and top-quality seafood, despite the crisis. So far, production levels and catches are at a relatively normal level,’ said Seafood Council CEO Renate Larsen.

Many markets are reporting increased demand for processed and pre-packed seafood, as well as products with longer sell-by dates, such as clipfish and frozen fish. But the logistics are challenging and efforts are being made to maintain all shipments and cargo activities to ensure a steady supply of Norwegian seafood.

Currently the main challenges are related to the closure of the restaurant segment globally, while there is still considerable uncertainty related to future demand and logistics. There is a noticeable tendency towards a gradual normalisation in Asian countries such as China and South Korea.

Other Media | The Narwhal: Fisheries and Oceans Canada pulls at-sea observers from fishing boats due to coronavirus pandemic

Thursday, April 09, 2020

Fishermen rely on observers to keep the industry honest. Now they’re worried about maintaining a level playing field

The Canadian government has removed observers from all fishing vessels for at least 45 days due to COVID-19.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s at-sea observer program monitors what is caught and what is discarded by ships engaged in many major fisheries. The observers are stationed aboard fishing vessels and report what they see to the government.

The new order came into effect on April 2.

Fishermen say they were not consulted or informed ahead of the announcement.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Brussels makes reservations to cover the cessation of activity of shellfish workers on foot

Thursday, April 09, 2020

Spanish MEPs demand that the group not be left out of aid

The European Parliament's Fisheries Committee yesterday analyzed the aid package proposed last week by the European Commission to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus in the fisheries and aquaculture sector. After a two-hour debate with the commissioner of the branch, Virginijus Sinkevicius, through a videoconference riddled with continuous technical problems, the need to modify some of the points in order to support the Executive's approach was evident.

The Spanish MEPs insisted again on the importance of opening these grants to shellfish, but the Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries hides that shellfish are not victims "of a mandatory social distancing of safety and that they do not have great costs infrastructure »to exclude the sector from temporary cessation and loss of income aid.
