Other Media | The Fish Site: Planet Tracker launches seafood transparency database

Thursday, December 08, 2022

Planet tracker has launched a new database that identifies the companies most exposed to sustainability risks across the $1.8 trillion seafood supply chain.

The report finds that only 8 percent of the hundred largest seafood companies – both listed and private – disclose the exact seafood species they are invested in for their entire portfolio. And, according to the Think Tank, this lack of transparency presents a major risk for investors and lenders, preventing an accurate assessment of risk and opportunity.

IN BRIEF - Norwegian salmon remains popular in France

Wednesday, December 07, 2022

The success of the Norwegian origin on salmon is undeniable. Worldwide, its consumption amounts to 500,000 tonnes for 5 billion euros, in the first half of 2022. In France, 70% of the salmon consumed comes from the fjords of Norway, mainly fresh, then smoked and frozen. Ready meals show growth of 13% in 2021 compared to 2020.

The holidays are naturally a pivotal period, especially with smoked salmon. In December 2021, the French consumed more than 4,000 tonnes of this flagship product, compared to just under 3,000 tonnes fresh. A market where supermarkets are largely doing well, with more than 70%, against 15% for hard-discount.
