Other Media | The Fish Site: Cyclone and pandemic prove doubly destructive for shrimp farming in West Bengal

Friday, June 12, 2020

Cyclone Amphan has compounded the miseries of the shrimp industry in Bengal, which was already reeling under the severe blow of the coronavirus-related lockdown.

“It was not a cyclone but a monster that had come to devour our lives and livelihood. Our mud houses are submerged underwater and floating polythene sheets and household items are the only remains of the devastation. We managed to survive nature’s fury, but our source of income is gone forever. We have lost our shrimp farming for a very long time. We have to literally beg for survival,” rued Jaba Mondal, 39, who broke down twice while recounting her ordeal.

Other Media | WorldFishing: PPE for fisheries in Peru

Friday, June 12, 2020

Future of Fish has launched a new campaign in partnership with fishers from La Islilla, Peru, to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to fishers and seafood workers.

Non-profit organisation, Future of Fish, has launched ‘PPE for fisheries’ a new campaign to support fishers and seafood traders in three small fishing villages with protective gear and sanitation supplies.

“For more than three months we have been without our work, fishing... we have to continue somehow. What we want is to support the wellbeing of our whole community,” said Roberto Carlos Vite Bayona, mayor of La Islilla.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: FAO predicts lasting negative effects for seafood from COVID-19

Friday, June 12, 2020

The biannual Food Outlook report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, released earlier this month, is predicting that seafood will see lasting impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, including reduced demand and pricing.

The report had a special focus this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted supply chains, forced the cancellation of industry trade events, and lead to widespread restaurant closures. This year's report contains a special feature, analyzing whether or not the COVID-19 disruptions to supply chains will result in a global food shortage.

As a result of COVID-19, the FAO report forecast that globally seafood production will be down 1.7 percent, or three million metric tons (MT), and the trade value of seafood will decrease by USD 5.8 billion (EUR 5 billion).

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Chinese market undergoing drastic change through coronavirus crisis

Friday, June 12, 2020

Market research consultancies have been working hard to assess the actionable lifestyle trends and developments emerging in China in the wake of its coronavirus lockdown.

Even as home-bound Chinese turn to convenience cooking and take-out – which even before the coronavirus had been a popular option in major Chinese cities – market research consultants interviewed by SeafoodSource seem divided on the extent of the opportunity for frozen and processed seafood products in the Chinese marketplace.

Recent corporate financial reporting suggests major potential for the frozen and processed seafood sector in China.
