Friday, May 29, 2020

Industria Entrevientos arises from the joint venture between Blumar and Multiexport Foods.
In the vicinity of the intersection of Avenida Frei and Ruta 9 Norte, the facilities of the new Entrevientos salmonid processing plant were erected, which will be jointly operated by Blumar and Multiexport Foods.

According to an interview published by the Salmonexpert website, the executive estimates that the plant will start operating during the second half of June of the current year and includes all the infrastructure necessary to process 3,500 tons of raw material per month, for a production of fresh and frozen fillet and whole fresh and frozen HON product, which will be packaged and shipped to their destination market.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: COVID-19 accelerating negative trends for pangasius sector

Friday, May 29, 2020

The coronavirus has delivered a large blow to Vietnam’s pangasius sector, which was already hurting before the pandemic.

Vietnam has not recorded any COVID-19 deaths through the crisis, and the entire country has only seen around 300 cases of the disease due to the extensive preventative measures it took beginning in January. But while most of social and economic activities in Vietnam have been brought back to a “new normal” since late April, disruptions in foreign markets, tangled supply chains, and suppressed demand have hurt its seafood export sector, upon which the country’s pangasius traders depend heavily.

Thursday, May 28, 2020

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada-based AC Covert is rolling out new seafood boxes available for home delivery in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Russian shipyard delays put investment quota programs at risk

Thursday, May 28, 2020

The implementation of the Russian government’s ambitious plan to upgrade its national fishery fleet through an investment-quota incentive program – which ties quota allocations to investments in new ships at Russian shipyards – is likely going to be delayed, as companies in the country aren’t capable of constructing the vessels in timeframe outlined in the program's bylaws.

The incentive program was launched by the government in 2016, and allocates additional quotas for some species to certain companies, if those companies have a ship of certain specifications built at a Russian shipyard within six years. The additional quota is given to the company for 15 years, but only upon the commissioning of the vessel.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: 1300 km trip and quarantine: Aquaculture equipment makers work out how to deliver salmon cages to Russia’s closed border

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

When Russia closed its borders because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Norwegian company Helgeland Plast had to rethink how to delivering salmon cages to its neighbours in the east. The solution was for a to team to drive over 1300 kilometres to have the cages put together and then picked up by a Russian tugboat.

“COVID-19 brought with it a great deal of uncertainty about our activities, both on the customer side and the supplier side. All the measures that were implemented, either by the government or the municipalities, changed our surroundings in such a way that we had to create some scenarios of situations that could potentially arise,” said Petter Jørgensen to SalmonBusiness.
