IN BRIEF - Miyagi Coho Salmon production expected to reach 14,500 tons

Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Landing of "Miyagi Coho Salmon Special"  to end at the end of June

The cumulative production volume of Miyagi-farmed Coho Salmon this season (March to July 2012) is expected to be 14,500 tons, down 20% from the previous season. 

This is due to a decrease in the amount of young fish brought to the sea surface fish ponds. Furthermore, the seawater temperature at the sea surface fish farms from the beginning of the year to early spring was 5 to 6 degrees higher than usual, which resulted in extremely poor growth and an average size that is one size smaller than usual. 

The growth rate, which has been good in recent years at 12 to 13 times, is also likely to be lower than average.

Among the farmed coho salmon produced in Miyagi Prefecture, only those that are processed to preserve freshness when landed, such as by "ikejime" (killing the fish alive) or "nerve-killing", are certified as the highest quality brand, "Miyagi Salmon."[....]

IN BRIEF - Good catches of Loligo, Illex, hubbsi hake and toothfish

Friday, June 14, 2024

The first season of Loligo squid this year, in the waters of the Falkland Islands, was completed within the established time, in contrast to what happened in the second season of 2023 when it was decided to close early for reasons of stock conservation, as reported by the Fisheries Department of the Islands.
The average catch per vessel, per day, was among the lowest for the first seasons since 2020, but higher than any other first season, prior to 2019.
Until the third week of May, the total catch of Illex squid for this year has been the highest since 2021 and the second highest since 2015.
Once again, the largest catch of varieties with scales has been that of hake and although it is the lowest since 2020, it is also the highest between the period from 1989 to 2018. As for the rock cod, (patagonotothen ramsayi) its volume catch has been the highest since 2016, but with a discard of 90%.
Finally, the average catch of toothfish per vessel has been the highest since statistics have been kept.

Izumisawa Suisan is first to obtain ASC certification for the species

Friday, June 14, 2024

China is tapping into Pakistan as an alternative seafood supplier, with tensions ramping up between it and its primary trading partners.

On 1 June, an air shipment of fresh mullet from Pakistan arrived in Kashgar, a city in China’s Xinjiang region, according to China Daily. The mullet was imported by Xinjiang Huizhou Import and Export Trading Co., which distributes seafood out of the Kashgar Comprehensive Bonded Zone Cross-border e-Commerce Exhibition and Trading Center. The facility, which was opened in late 2023, is being touted by local officials as “Central Asia’s fresh and cold chain food import portal,” offering access to China’s westernmost region.
