Other Media | SeafoodSource: Fast-growing seafood restaurant chain opens in Wuhan

CHINA
Wednesday, January 27, 2021

A high-end Chinese seafood restaurant chain has opened its 40th outlet in Wuhan, where the COVID-19 virus emerged last year.

The Xu Ji outlet was opened with fanfare and flowers at a commercial building in the Hankou district and is the second in two months opened by the Xu Ji operation, owned by Hunan Xu Ji Catering Management Co., a firm established in 1999.

The company hasn’t its goal, announced in 2018, of opening 50 restaurants by the end of 2020, but the expansion is proof the businessman behind the chain, Xu Guo Hua, has grand ambitions for the franchise. Xu increased his Xu Ji restaurant count from 22 in 2018 by focusing on fast-growing regional cities like Xi’an and Wuhan, where operation costs are lower and competition is less intense than in Beijing or Shanghai.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Iceland on track to break record for farmed fish exports

ICELAND
Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Preliminary figures suggest that Iceland set a new record for the export of aquaculture products last year.
Iceland’s two main farmed fish exports species are salmon and Arctic Char.

The total figure is expected to be around ISK 29bn (£164.3m) a year on year, an increase in nominal terms of 17 per cent.
The figure will be seen as impressive in a year dominated by coronavirus and a pandemic which has shut thousands of restaurants around the world, hugely disrupting salmon sales.

The export figure for December ( which also includes agricultural products), is ISK 4.8bn (£27.4m), an increase of 58 per cent on the final month of 2019 when currency fluctuations are taken into account, but when there was no pandemic.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: 'Only the imagination limits where salmon production in closed-containment systems in the sea will be in 3, 5, years

NORWAY
Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Akvafuture welcomes new aquaculture strategy.

Earlier this month, Norway’s Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen announced a new aquaculture strategy. The strategy will look at solutions to the challenges of lice, escapes and high mortality. A new scheme is also being drawn up to get more salmon farming into closed containment facilities.

“We want a development that also facilitates closed containment facilities. Customers are increasingly demanding documentation of sustainability and the environment, and although we know that Norwegian farmed salmon is one of the healthiest things you can eat, some are increasingly overlooked,” the Minister of Fisheries has previously told E24.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Study into marine by-products traceability

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, January 26, 2021

HSSMI and MarinTrust have begun a three-month feasibility study, funded by the UK Seafood Innovation Fund’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS), to define a traceability system for the UK’s marine by-product supply chain.??

Marine by-products such as head, fins, skin and bone are increasingly used in fish oils and cosmetics and, most importantly, in feed for farmed fish and seafood. The challenge is to find the ideal traceability system for such a fragmented and paper-based supply chain.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: 'We must have access to Norwegian waters now!' demands Danish fisheries

DENMARK
Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Danish fishermen have gotten off to a bad start in 2021, writes the Danish Fish Producers Organisation.

The trade agreement between the EU and the UK at Christmas 2020 will cost the fishery up to DKK 1.5 billion (€201.6 million) in lost fishing quotas. At the same time, the protracted negotiations meant that no agreement has been reached between the EU and Norway on fishing by 2021, and therefore the Danish fisheries have not yet been given access to be able to fish in Norwegian waters.

Today, Monday, EU fisheries ministers will meet to discuss fishing opportunities in 2021, and action is urgently needed in relation to the lack of access to Norwegian waters.
