Other Media | SeafoodSource: Assessors must reconsider parts of potential bluefin MSC certification

Monday, June 29, 2020

An independent adjudicator, analyzing formal objections to the potential Marine Stewardship Council certification of the Usufuku Honten East Atlantic bluefin tuna fishery, has upheld one of the four objections presented.

The objections were presented by the World Wildlife Fund and The Pew Charitable Trusts in January, after the assessment body, Control Union Pesca Ltd., recommended that the fishery be certified in December 2019. Of the four objections, the independent adjudicator upheld objections to the evidence used to conclude how long bluefin tuna take to grow and reproduce, according to a release from MSC.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Where’s the return on the EU’s aquaculture investment?

Monday, June 29, 2020

The latest statistical analysis shows that the EU’s attempts to step up and revive aquaculture production have proved to be costly, and have had very limited results. We investigate why this might be the case.

Recently we took an in-depth look at the lack of uptake of tuna farming technology in the Mediterranean region, and what we found inspired us to investigate whether there is a commonality between the depressing status of closed-cycle tuna farming in Europe and the status of fish farming in the European Union (EU) in general.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: The rising tide of on-land salmon farming

Monday, June 29, 2020

Authorities in Norway have now granted licences for almost 90,000 tonnes of harvest-size salmon a year to be grown in on-land plants, while in the United States recirculating aquaculture systems may account for more than 360,000 tonnes annually by 2030.

With major on-land volumes also planned in China and projects on the drawing board in other parts of the world, financial analysts have estimated that between 500,000, and 730,000 tonnes of salmon a year will be produced on land by the end of the decade.

Friday, June 26, 2020
