Other Media | The Fish Site: Kingfish moves across the pond

NETHERLANDS
Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Despite the turbulent economic climate, Netherlands-based The Kingfish Company is expanding - and charting new waters in the USA.

While many producers of high-end seafood have struggled under the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, The Kingfish Company – the new corporate identity for Netherlands-based Kingfish Zeeland, which recently embarked on an ambitious international expansion programme – is emerging from it in fine fettle.

Not only is the yellowtail kingfish producer on schedule and on budget with the construction of its Netherlands RAS expansion (which will double its current capacity), it has also just submitted its first permit notice for the construction of a 6,000-to-8,000-tonne RAS in Maine, USA. The company is on target to hit its long-term 20,000-tonne production goal across its EU and US sites. CEO Ohad Maiman explains to The Fish Site that it’s been an interesting journey.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Uber, Stop & Shop add grocery delivery services, with seafood continuing sales increase streak

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Grocery e-commerce sales spiked, and fresh, frozen, and shelf-stable seafood sales grew again in June, as U.S. consumers continued to shift their food buying from foodservice to retail.

U.S. online grocery sales climbed 9 percent in June to USD 7.2 billion (EUR 6.4 billion), according to a new Brick Meets Click/Mercatus Grocery Survey. Fully 45.6 million households used delivery and pickup services to fulfill a larger portion of their grocery needs, Brick Meets Click/ Mercatus said in a press release. The increase was almost entirely driven by a 9 percent increase among shoppers in the over-60 age segment since May.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Pelagic sector invites Greenpeace collaboration

EUROPEAN UNION
Tuesday, July 07, 2020

The Pelagic Freezer-trawler Association (PFA) has extended an invitation to Greenpeace UK, pointing out that the NGO has published inaccurate and misleading information as part of its campaign group on fishing activity in Marine Protected Areas.

According to PFA president Gerard van Balsfoort, the report comes as an unwelcome surprise, not least as the Greenpeace UK report contradicts a Memorandum of Understanding the PFA and its member companies signed with Greenpeace in the Netherlands in August 2016, lasting for ten years.

Vietnam’s push towards organic agriculture could impact aquaculture output, creating market space for organic aquaculture.
