Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Shellfish: imports supply what Galicia no longer produces

Monday, January 16, 2023

510 shellfish banks, with an occupation of more than 81 million square meters. This is the estimate made by the Baixura Technical Unit of the Department of the Sea of the Galician potential to produce shellfish in 2006, data that is included in the Galician Economy Report (2019-2020) of the IDEGA of the University of Santiago de Compostela.

The figure is not updated, explains the Department to IP, due to the complexity involved in covering the study of the different banks and the variety of resources that are extracted in Galicia.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Price of Japan’s top tuna highlights country’s recovery from Covid-19

Monday, January 16, 2023

The top bluefin tuna sold during the first auction of the year at Tokyo’s Central Wholesale Market in Toyosu reached JPY 36,040,000 (USD 274,120, EUR 256,785), carrying on a tradition started at the market’s former location in Tsukiji and signaling some recovery from the pandemic.

The high price has nothing to do with the actual value of tuna, nor with its relative scarcity. As in years past, it’s a PR stunt and a reasonably inexpensive way for the purchaser to get worldwide name recognition.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Oslo Stock Exchange rejects NTS rebels plea

Monday, January 16, 2023

A GROUP of rebel NTS shareholders have lost their fight to prevent the delisting of the company until they receive a better share price.

The Oslo Stock Exchange (Oslo Børsen) on Friday rejected their complaint, effectively saying they did not have a strong enough case and has now delisted the shares.

The protest was brought by NTS shareholder Hans Martin Storø who called for the delisting of the company from the Oslo Stock Exchange to be halted with the support of the Øie family which also claimed the share price SalMar is paying was too low.

Monday, January 16, 2023

The world’s biggest salmon farmer, Mowi, made an operating profit of approximately €1.005 billion in 2022, 92% more than the €522.6 million made in 2021, despite harvesting a slightly smaller volume of fish.

Mowi harvested 464,000 gutted weight tonnes of fish in 2022, it said in a market update today. That is marginally less than the 465,600 gwt harvested the year before.

Mowi harvested 130,500 gwt of Atlantic salmon globally in the fourth quarter of last year, slightly higher than the 127,000 gwt guided in its Q3 2022 report.
