IN BRIEF - Skandia launches new smoked salmon recipes

Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Skandia presents two new references of its smoked salmon: with cinnamon and ginger and the Scandinavian recipe.
All of the company's smoked products are made using natural beech wood smoke and do not contain sugar. Likewise, dry salt is always added by hand and never injected.
In addition, selection at origin and controlled traceability guarantee that the fish has not been treated with antibiotics and fed without GMOs. “Our salmon comes from raw materials that have never been frozen, always fresh. This makes the texture always juicy and the flavor fresher,” the company explains.

IN BRIEF - University of Stirling study could lead to improved mussel production

Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Innovative new research by the University of Stirling’s Institute of Aquaculture could help improve mussel farming practices and lead to increased production.

Blue mussel aquaculture is an important sustainable and eco-friendly way of producing a protein source, but the industry has been facing challenges resulting in production fluctuations.

Mussel farming has a low impact on the environment because they require no food, grow on ropes and, by nature of being bivalves, they even clean the water around them. They also sequester carbon from the atmosphere in their shells.

The University of Stirling study saw scientists take samples from farms on Scotland’s Atlantic coast before carrying out genetic analysis.

Researchers discovered regular genetic mixing changes local populations. The findings could help mussel farmers with site selection, stocking strategies, and management practices.

This could lead to more consistent production and improved profitability for the mussel farming industry and contribute to the overall health and resilience of marine ecosystems in Scotland.

Researchers also found that the southwest coast is particularly important for growing mussel populations, meaning that some areas act as net sources (south) or sinks for mussel populations (north).

Other Media | EuropaAzul: New trends drive fish consumption

Tuesday, February 13, 2024

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute rides the wave and launches an effective marketing campaign in Japan.

Similarly, the current rise in popularity of onigiri (traditional Japanese rice balls) is paving the way for a further increase in demand for seafood.
