IN BRIEF - Stock assessments show Maritime lobster population strong, fishery sustainable

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Lobster populations off all three Maritime provinces remain strong and the $1.7-billion fishery is sustainable, according to the latest assessments from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO).

It's good news for coastal communities, but warming ocean temperatures caused by climate change is a potential cloud on the horizon.

Adam Cook is a DFO biologist who tracks lobster populations along the Scotian Shelf and Bay of Fundy — waters that support nearly 3,000 commercial licence holders in 12 lobster fishing areas (LFAs).

Cook and his colleagues recently posted stock assessments for 2022. He said all LFAs in the Maritimes are in a healthy zone for stock status.

"Which suggests there's still enough lobster to not raise any sort of conservation concerns. The commercial biomass is doing quite well," Cook said.

It's the same story in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence, although DFO's stock assessments for five fishings area in that region have not been posted.

Other Media | SalmonExpert: Salmon farmers ask the authority to regulate aquaculture on the high seas

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Over the next few months, the long-awaited talks announced by the Government are expected to begin, in order to develop a new Aquaculture Law, separating it from the Fisheries area.

The current Chilean legislation does not consider a specific regulation for the operation of aquaculture on the high seas, therefore, in practice salmon farming centers operate on the AAA (areas suitable for aquaculture) that already exist and it is necessary that the concession of aquaculture has been previously granted, since today access to new concessions is closed, in the regions of Los Lagos and Aysén since 2020 and in Magallanes since 2016.

IN BRIEF - US Alaska Surimi Price Reduction

Monday, May 22, 2023

Forecast for season A 120 yen lower than previous season B, but still high

The price of this year's A season (first half) of frozen Alaska pollock surimi from the United States, which is the main ingredient of fish paste products, is expected to gradually decrease for each grade after this spring. 

Price negotiations between local producers and importers are likely to be 100 to 120 yen lower per kilogram than in the second half of the 2022 B season.

Due to the expansion of international demand for surimi and the depreciation of the yen, the surimi produced in the same country rose to a record high in the fall and winter of 2022.
