IN BRIEF - Japan Govt Calls for Boosting Food Security for Fishery Goods

JAPAN
Friday, June 02, 2023

A Japanese government annual report on Friday underlined the importance of strengthening food security for fishery products amid growing risks triggered by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The fishery industry white paper noted the risk of Japan's stable supplies of fishery products being jeopardized due to soaring import prices of such goods and related production materials in the wake of recent developments in international society.

Japan's imports of fishery products from the top five countries accounted for over 50 pct of its overall imports of such goods in 2021, the report said, pointing out that the high dependence on a few specific nations is a challenge for Japan.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Russian Competition Drives Down Prices for Norwegian King Crab

NORWAY
Thursday, June 13, 2024

Several factors have led to a nearly halving of prices for both fishermen and exporters in a short period of time. Fishermen are currently experiencing significantly lower kilo prices for king crab in June compared to May.

One key factor is the availability of blue crab from Russia in the market. Live blue crab is being delivered at a significantly different price than the red king crab from Norway. Additionally, Russia has announced an earlier start to king crab fishing in the Barents Sea, moving the start date from 01 September to 01 July. This introduces a new player during a time when Norwegian actors have traditionally operated alone, further driving down prices on the global market.

IN BRIEF - Japan-Asia routes are fully booked for the next month.

JAPAN
Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Priority was given to high-cost cargo from China and other countries, and cuts in service

Space shortages are becoming serious on Japan-Asia routes. Although it depends on the shipping company and route, according to people involved, bookings cannot be made until mid-July, about a month from now. It seems that the reduction in allocations for Japanese cargo is having an impact, with high-cost cargo from China and other sources being given priority. 

Some shipping companies are considering reducing the number of intra-regional routes to and from Japan to redirect ships to routes to and from China and other core routes that are also expected to be highly profitable.
