Other Media | Fish Farmer: Shutdown ‘puts more than 1,500 jobs at risk’

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

The Canadian federal government’s decision to close salmon farms in the Discovery Islands region of British Columbia will put 1,535 jobs at risk and the state’s economy will take a hit of CAN $139.1m. Those are among the findings of a report from economics consultancy RIAS, commissioned by the BC Salmon Farmers Association (BCSFA).
In December last year, Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard Minister Bernadette Jordan ordered all salmon farms in the region removed by June 30, 2022.

The farms have also been blocked from restocking, starting immediately.The BC Salmon Farmers strongly oppose the decision, which the federal government says was taken in response to calls from local First Nations and environmental groups.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Biden wants 25 percent funding increase for NOAA

Friday, April 16, 2021

U.S. President Joe Biden has called on Congress to give the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration a more than 25 percent increase in funding for the 2022 fiscal year.

In a letter to Senate Appropriations Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) on 9 April, Acting Director for the Office of Management and Budget Shalanda Young requested USD 6.9 billion (EUR 5.8 billion) for the agency. That’s USD 1.4 billion (EUR 1.2 billion) more than the agency received for this current budget year.

More than half of the increase is tied to additional investments in climate research that would give support the work of regional and local decision makers and help make U.S. communities more resilient toward climate change.

IN BRIEF - Maine university joins international aquaculture project

BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) — A Maine university will play a role as the American representative in a new international aquaculture project funded by the European Union.

The University of New England says it will be a part of the AquaVitae Consortium, which is aimed at speeding up development of sustainable aquaculture in countries along the Atlantic Ocean. The European Union is funding the $8.9 million project through the Horizon 2020 program.

Thursday, April 15, 2021

With the pace at which the construction of new land-based salmon farms is progressing, one can get the impression that there are few challenges that remain when it comes to RAS technology. For the technology provider Krüger Kaldnes, however, the increasing number and size of the facilities creates incentives to solve challenges that must be solved in order for the facilities to become sustainable.

Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) has been around for decades.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Norway salmon exports to UK worth 30% less in Q1

Thursday, April 15, 2021

The value of salmon exports from Norway to the UK dropped by 30% in the first three months of this year compared to the same period in 2020, the deputy chief executive of Seafood Norway has said.

Trond Davidsen blamed both Brexit and strict Covid measures for causing difficulties but said the flow of goods was now working more smoothly.

Although Norway is not in the EU, the end of the Brexit transition period at the end of 2020 meant the country’s trade relations with the UK were no longer regulated by the European Economic Area (EEA) agreement which governs trade between EU member states and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
