IN BRIEF - MOWI ASA Press Release: Update on the allegations of collusion

NORWAY
Friday, November 15, 2019

With reference to the previously announced European Commission inspection which concerned possible collusion between Norwegian producers of farmed Norwegian Atlantic salmon and class action complaints in the USA related to the same matter.

Further to this Mowi has been informed that we will receive a subpoena from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in the USA where they are opening a criminal investigation involving allegations of similar conduct.   

Mowi considers that there are no basis for the EU inspection and that the class action complaints clearly lack merit and are entirely unsubstantiated. This equally applies to any criminal investigation in the US.  

Mowi will fully cooperate with the Department of Justice and will provide as requested all information in relation to our US subsidiaries.

There is no new information regarding the European Commission’s case handling.

This information is subject to the disclosure requirements pursuant to section 5-12 of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act.


IN BRIEF - Conflicted Norwegian proposals for NEAFC ban on combination shrimp gear

NORWAY
Thursday, November 14, 2019

A proposal presented by Norway with support from Russia at the annual NEAFC meeting this week takes aim at the use of collecting bags to gather catches of fish filtered from shrimp trawls.

The Norwegian proposal would lead to the use of combination shrimp trawl gear being outlawed in ICES sub areas I and II, and re-opens discussion on a subject that has been pursued within NEAFC since 2015.

Norway tabled similar proposals in 2017 and 2018 on banning the use of collecting bag in shrimp fisheries with a reference to sustainability and emphasis on protection of juvenile fish. In 2017 the Norwegian NEAFC delegation announced, during a plenary session at the annual meeting, that they would carry out own study on the selectivity of collecting bags.

IN BRIEF - Strike brings more disruption to Chilean salmon plants

CHILE
Thursday, November 14, 2019

Some salmon processing plants in Chile were closed again earlier this week during a one-day general strike against widening levels of inequality in the country.

Salmon plants in Quellón, the processing hub on the island of Chiloé, and in the port town of Calbuco on the mainland, have been closed intermittently because of civil unrest, but appeared to be getting back to normal on November 2019.

On Tuesday, however, managers at several plants in Quellón decided to suspend operations ahead of a protest march in the commune.

IN BRIEF - Fishing companies donate millions to new Kongsberg Fishery Simulator in Greenland

DENMARK
Thursday, November 14, 2019

A first of its kind in the Kingdom of Denmark, the K-Sim Fishery simulator will enable students to gain vital competence in diverse fishery situations, including aft deck operations, and is scheduled for installation in 2020.

Introduced by Kongsberg Digital in 2018, K-Sim Fishery is based on sophisticated K-Sim Navigation simulator technology, with added functionality and instruments specific to commercial fishing, including Kongsberg Maritime (Simrad) echo sounders, sonars and trawl monitoring systems.

Reflecting Kongsberg Digital’s ability to adapt to customer requirements, the new K-Sim Fishery simulator will be built upon one of Greenland Maritime Center’s existing K-Sim Navigation bridge simulators. The upgrade will include a highly detailed fishing vessel model with advanced hydrodynamic modelling for ultimate realism in behavior and a new customized sailing area to accommodate exercises in Greenland waters.

IN BRIEF - Over 50% of UK consumers want to eat more seafood

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, November 14, 2019

Seafish, the public body that supports the £10bn UK seafood industry, published its results looking at UK consumers’ attitudes and behaviours regarding seafood. It commissioned the ‘State of the Nation’ research as part of its work to drive further seafood consumption in the UK.

The findings of the research reveal that only one third followed the NHS public health recommendation to eat two portions of fish a week. However, over half (55%) of consumers would like to eat more seafood. The research also uncovered some key consumer attitudes and preferences around seafood, with findings showing that that 70% of the fish buying public think that sustainability is important and that telling consumers about the specific health benefits of fish would encourage over 70% of them to eat more.

Greg Smith, head of marketing at Seafish, said, “The State of the Nation project contains some of our most important research to date, helping us better understand UK consumers.

IN BRIEF - Where plastic outnumbers fish by seven to one

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Plastic is building up in the areas of the ocean where fish feed and grow, according to research.

A study found bits of plastic outnumber baby fish by seven to one in nursery waters off Hawaii.

It appears that the same ocean processes that concentrate prey for juvenile fish also accumulate floating plastics.

IN BRIEF - Fishmeal developed for sustainable aquaculture

SWEDEN
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Aquaculture in Sweden could be more sustainable if by-products from industrial feed production were used instead of wild-caught aquafeed, according to studies at the University of Gothenburg.

One of the most important challenges in aquaculture is access to fishmeal. Demand outweighs supply today due to the rapid expansion of aquaculture.

A new thesis has studied farming of the two species Atlantic wolffish and European lobster.

IN BRIEF - HiSea Project to Launch the First Prototype of a High-Resolution System Providing Data on Sea Water Quality

FRANCE
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

NICE - The EU-funded HiSea Project will reveal the first prototype of its state-of-the-art platform providing high resolution data of sea water quality, at the project's General Assembly scheduled to take place in Nice, France on November 25-26, 2019.    

During its final stage, the innovative HiSea platform will provide data on physical parameters (meteorology, waves, currents, etc.) and water quality parameters (chlorophyll, marine pollution, etc.), based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of existing partners' proven platforms such as FEWS or AQUASAFE.  

The platform is built on an end-user centred approach, involving various end-users and stakeholders from the port and aquaculture industries. They have been directly involved in the service's design, development and operation. The HiSea system is aimed at improving the operation, planning and management of a variety of marine activities, focusing on the port and aquaculture sectors.
