Other Media | SeafoodSource: Strong returns in Japan, but eel market still struggling

Thursday, May 14, 2020

The number of eels caught in Japan rose sharply in the most recent fishing season, covering the period from November 2019 to the end of April 2020, according to a Fisheries Agency report.

Glass eels, or elvers, are juvenile eels that are caught and raised to full size in grow-out ponds located in 19 prefectures across Japan. The top prefectures in terms of stocking amount of elvers are Kagoshima, Aichi, Miyazaki, and Shizuoka.

A new report from Japan’s Fisheries Agency titled, “The Situation and Measures Regarding Eels,” reveals that even though Japan’s domestic catch has improved after years of declines, the market for eel has fallen drastically as Japan’s restaurants have been forced to curtail service as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Portugal will provide financial coverage to all temporary stoppages by COVID-19 until the end of the year

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

The Government of Portugal has confirmed through its publication in the Diário da República that aid for the temporary cessation of fishing will cover the maximum period authorized by the EU: until December 31. The Ministry of the Sea has published the “Portarias” that regulate the granting of aid within the FEMP for multi-purpose vessels, purse seine and coastal trawling. In all three cases, temporary stoppages will be financed from March 18 to the end of the year.

Following the criteria established by Brussels, it is fixed as a basic condition that the eligible ships have operated at least 120 days in the two years. In order to stimulate the delay of stops and thus guarantee the supply of the food chain, the stoppage of vessels can be carried out in a single period or in interpolated periods, provided that, cumulatively, they do not exceed a maximum 60 days.

The #FishToYourDoor campaign started by Seafood Cornwall is introducing a new initiative, with hefty discounts for NHS staff.

With more than 40,000 customers reached within the first few days of the campaign in early March, #FishToYourDoor has gone from strength to strength, and continues to add new merchants to its growing list of sellers with delivery capacity, and promoting fishermen selling direct from their boats.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Why China should reform its aquaculture extension system

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

China’s aquaculture extension system – which has been the main engine for growing the country’s aquaculture sector over the last 40 years – must overcome problems such as “insufficient funding, outmoded staff structures, and inefficient management systems” in order to ensure the long term prosperity of the sector.

This is the conclusion of a new study into the role of the extension system, which can be traced back to the 1950s, when the government required aquaculture experts to study technology for seaweed farming and fish farming in ponds, and provided technical guidance to aquaculturists through state-owned aquaculture farms.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Mowi Scotland earnings hit hard by fish health issues

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Mowi Scotland’s operating profit fell by 84% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same period last year as the salmon farmer continued to tackle problems with disease and climate-related issues.

Operational earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) were €5.7 million in January to March, down from €35.8m in Q1 2019, Mowi revealed in its Q1 report. EBIT per kilo was €0.63 (€2.27).

The first quarter harvest volume was 9,036 tonnes gutted weight (Q1 2019: 15,787 tonnes). Volumes were negatively impacted by a challenging biology in 2019 continuing into the first quarter of 2020 and lower production, reported Mowi.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Seafood pivotal for rebuilding Norway's economy

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

The seafood industry is expected to play a key role in getting Norway’s economy and workforce up and running again in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘For Norway and other seafood nations, this is a real opportunity for a blue revolution and illustrate the real meaning of sustainability – social, economic and environmentally. Seafood can be an important part of the solution in terms of rebuilding communities, creating jobs and responsible and low-carbon footprint food production,’ said Norwegian Seafood Council CEO Renate Larsen.

She commented that as society is now slowly gradually opening up after successfully curbing the spread of the virus in Norway, the job of how to get the economy back on track has started in earnest. In the past week, Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Fisheries Minister Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen have been meeting representatives from the seafood industry to discuss what role it should play in rebuilding the economy.
