New Zealand fishing companies Moana New Zealand and Sanford have announced that they have entered into a long term arrangement involving Sanford’s North Island inshore fishery.
Subject to various conditions being met, including approval from the New Zealand Commerce Commission, Moana will acquire Sanford’s Annual Catch Entitlement (ACE) for much of its quota of North Island inshore species. Moana will also take over the catching, processing and selling of fish utilising this ACE. Inshore fisheries are those out to 12 nautical miles from the New Zealand coast.
Settlement is expected to occur later in 2023, after the conditions are met.
Moana is well placed to take on the additional catch and processing volumes with a proven track record of success in inshore operations, perishable goods supply chain management, and upgraded facilities built with growth in mind.
Forecast for season A 120 yen lower than previous season B, but still high
The price of this year's A season (first half) of frozen Alaska pollock surimi from the United States, which is the main ingredient of fish paste products, is expected to gradually decrease for each grade after this spring.
Price negotiations between local producers and importers are likely to be 100 to 120 yen lower per kilogram than in the second half of the 2022 B season.
Due to the expansion of international demand for surimi and the depreciation of the yen, the surimi produced in the same country rose to a record high in the fall and winter of 2022.
