Other Media | FiskerForum: Greenland's Successful live cod season

Monday, July 20, 2020

Supplies of live cod from coastal fishermen have been so abundant that Royal Greenland’s factory and the wellboat used for live fish collection have struggled to keep up.

The live cod season has been so strong that factory trawler Sisimiut has been brought in to take some of the live cod, relieving the pressure on the company’s factory in Maniitsoq, which has a capacity to process between 300 and 400 tonnes per week.

‘Around a hundred fishermen currently have about 2000 tonnes of live cod in net cages along the coast, from Maniitsoq in the north to Paamiut in the south. As there is a lot of fish and these are long distances, the well boat Maniitsoq can’t keep up with transporting the fish to the factory in Maniitsoq.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Covid knocks 25,000 tonnes off Ecuador’s shrimp exports in two months

Friday, July 17, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic reduced Ecuadorian shrimp exports by 25,000 tonnes in just two months in the first quarter of the year according to recently published statistics.

Speaking at a webinar organised by Adisseo this week, Laurence Massault from BioMar Ecuador, outlined how the pandemic had affected the country’s shrimp production, with shortages of processing workers meaning that peak harvests could not coincide with the new and full moons - the times when the shrimp shells are hardest. As a result harvest had to be spread evenly across the lunar cycle.
