Other Media | The Fish Site: Ghana aims to ramp up farmed catfish and tilapia sales

Monday, July 27, 2020

Plans to promote Ghana’s aquaculture industry may have been postponed due to the outbreak of Covid-19, but the organisers are optimistic that an inaugural event will go ahead next year instead.

The sector had planned at three-day Fish Expo West Africa in August to bring together fish farmers and other service providers across West Africa to showcase their products, participate in knowledge sharing seminars and to discuss joint projects. A National Tilapia and Catfish Week was also on the cards, during which tilapia and catfish would have been widely promoted.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Brussels updates COVID19 and the Green Deal its blue economy goals in the Atlantic

The European Commission has just updated its action plan to achieve a “sustainable, resilient and competitive blue economy in the Atlantic area of the EU”, that is, the coastal areas of France, Ireland, Portugal and Spain.

The update of the plan comes at a time of social and economic uncertainty, with the development of new EU-funded programs to promote economic recovery and the negotiation of the next EU financial framework for the period 2021-2027. Through the update of the plan, the aim is to “give new impetus” to the Atlantic maritime strategy, helping to strengthen the recovery of the participating countries. In addition, the objectives of the Green Deal are included.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Salmon hot dog? Kvarøy takes on the challenge

Friday, July 24, 2020

Kvarøy Arctic will be launching a line of frozen salmon hot dogs and salmon burgers across the United States next month. But as the company found out, the reason most U.S. consumers have never seen a salmon hot dog for sale before is that they were extraordinarily difficult to develop, according to Kvarøy Strategic Development Consultant Jennifer Bushman.

“The challenges were many – from the casing to the other ingredients – so that we could get the snap of a classic American hot dog with the nutrition of salmon,” Bushman said.

Other Media | FiskerForum: SNG’S Successf pelagic gear re-think

Friday, July 24, 2020

Adding new sections of mesh to the sides of pelagic trawls has been such a success during the albacore tuna season that Swan Net Gundry is now busy with orders for the same type of gear for trawls used in the herring, mackerel and horse mackerel (scad) fisheries.

There has been highly positive feedback from seven vessels fishing with SNG gear during the current Bay of Biscay tuna season, and the addition of these extra netting panels to close off what had previously been escape routes has been very successful, without altering the configuration of the gear.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Peruvian fishing industry is 'underpinned' as a benchmark for economic recovery

Friday, July 24, 2020

The Peruvian fishing industry has designed strict biosafety protocols both for the maintenance stage and for the operation in fleet and plant, for which more than 41.3 million soles have been invested. The president of the Sociedad Nacional de Pesqueria (SNP), Cayetana Aljovín, explained that this has made "the fishing sector a benchmark for other industries in the implementation of security protocols."

And in this emergency context "fishing will underpin the badly battered national economy by contributing around 1 billion dollars in foreign exchange for the country, as a result of exports of fishmeal and fish oil," he stressed.
