THE Norwegian government appears to have relented to pressure and agreed to pay the country’s fish farming communities millions of kroner extra under its new salmon tax plans. Last week in an unprecedented revolt up to 70 regional mayors protested to Oslo that its new proposals would leave them at least a billion kroner worse off than under the current Aquaculture Fund scheme.
The country’s fish farming companies are still not happy that they have become victims of a new tax, but agree that this latest charge is preferable to the 40 per cent levy on profits proposed by an independent committee last November, a move which has since been rejected. In its place Oslo came up with a plan last month to levy NOK O.40 (40 øre or cents) per kilo on all salmon and trout produced.

The Murmansk Sea Fishing Port saw a drop in activity during May this year with no blue whiting products landed at the port last month.
While in April fishing companies had landed 60% of their catches to the port, this figure fell to around 30% last month, as a roll-back in Covid-19 restrictions in European ports meant that more production was landed elsewhere.
As a result, there were only landings of demersal fish and shrimp in Murmansk during last month as 47 fishing vessels landed catches.

When Remøy Management needed a process boat, they came to Moen Marin with a challenge: Is it possible to put a processing facility on a service catamaran? Moen flipped around, and the answer was yes. “This is an innovative way of doing it, and the result contributes unique flexibility,” said Torfinn Hansvik, Technical Manager at Moen Marin, in a press release.
The market for process boats are hot these days. An increasing share of the aquaculture industry see the process boat as a solution to challenges related to profitability and fish welfare.
