Other Media | SalmonBusiness: This will change the salmon farming supply industry over the next decade

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Plans for two million tonnes of land-based salmon will bring radical changes to the entire industry.

10-15 years ago, recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) were a Danish industry. A small number of Danish companies traveled the world building facilities. Mostly smolt sites, but eventually also some smaller harvest-sized fish farms. What the fish farms had in common is that they did not make money. The fish had sky-high fixed costs, as total production costs were distributed in quite a small amount of kilos.

At the time, the salmon price was between EUR 3 and EUR 3.5 per kilo. Land-based production costs were much higher. Sea cage farmed salmon could be produced considerably cheaper. RAS was not competitive.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Russia considering drastic measures to deal with pollock glut

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Russia’s pollock season, which began on 1 January, is in serious jeopardy as its primary market, China, has shut out Russian imports, citing COVID-19 safety measures.

Russia sells to 61 percent of its national seafood exports – worth nearly USD 3.3 billion (EUR 2.74 billion) – to China, with Russia's pollock exports to China worth USD 580 to USD 600 million (EUR 482 to EUR 499 million).

The Chinese market became significantly harder for Russian seafood companies to access after Chinese customs authorities announced in January they had found strains of live COVID-19 on the packaging of seafood imported from Russia. In response, China said it would increase the frequency and thoroughness of its inspections of imported Russian seafood.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Iceland’s Capelin Season Gets Underway

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

This year’s capelin season has finally started for the Icelandic fleet, with the first landings to Neskaupstaður, Vopnafjörður and the Westman Islands. Fishing has been in the Meðallandsbugt area west of Ingólfshöfði. These are the first landings of fresh capelin in Iceland since 2018, as both 2019 and 2020 seasons were zero-quota years.

With a limited quota this year, fishing is focused on landing for production ashore, and there has been no real hurry for the fleet to get to work.

Other Media | WorldFishing: Nowhere to catch, nowhere to land

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Five industry stakeholders are calling for urgent action to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, a practice which costs the seafood sector up to US$36.4 billion annually.

The five groups, which together represent more than 150 companies, are Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship, the Global Tuna Alliance, the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation, the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability, and the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative.

In their ‘Statement on Traceability and Port State Measures’, the groups call on governments to implement control measures aligned with the FAO’s Agreement on Port State Measures, an international treaty that requires port inspections and other measures to prevent IUU catch from being brought ashore.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Fishermen have to be content with sardines on the first day of the Verdel campaign

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

The fishermen could not find the long-awaited mackerel they hoped to capture, on the first day of the official campaign for the species. The wind played a trick on them and they had to be content with catches of sardines, "quite fat", at a price of 1.50 to 2.10 euros-kilo. However, the inshore fleet can be calm because instead of 65% of the total allowable catches (TAC) - as agreed by the Ministers of the Twenty-seven last December - they will be able to fish 72% in this first quarter, which has meant a relief for the sector, which was already seeing a very short campaign.

Other Media | aqua.cl: Subpesca requests technical information from IFOP for number of fish

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Additional data on this topic will be made available to the public in a webinar to be held this Wednesday.

As a matter of urgency, the Undersecretariat of Fisheries and Aquaculture (Subpesca) requested technical information from the Fisheries Development Institute (IFOP) to assess the possible causes of fish stranding off the coast of the south-central zone of the country.

According to preliminary IFOP data, varazones are events that usually occur in spring and summer, due to the rise of water masses with very low oxygen content (anoxic) towards the coast.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: MSC wants to boost the consumption of certified fish: Spain is at the bottom of Europe with half a kilo per person

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

MSC's Spanish subsidiary, Marine Stewardship Council, has achieved the involvement of more than 50 entities, among which are companies from the fishing sector, distribution and research organizations, to promote the week “Mares para siempre”. The initiative wants to promote the practice of certified sustainable fishing and the consumption of products obtained "by means of respectful techniques" with the preservation of maritime ecosystems.

To do this, it will organize a scientific forum; take the campaign to secondary schools; will take new actions at the point of sale; and will organize a gastronomic event with chef Diego Guerrero, among other actions.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness:Grieg avalanche clean up: No holes have been reported

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Norway’s Directorate of Fisheries and Grieg Seafood have given an update after the avalanche which hit part of a salmon farm.

On Monday, an avalanche hit parts of Grieg Seafood’s fish farm Stjernøya, Finnmark, Northern Norway.

No employees were injured. The site had a total of 1.2 million fish, with an average size of about 3.7 kilograms. The fish are healthy and do not have ISA, according to Grieg Seafood.

The site was also hit by an avalanche in 2018, prompting a mountain safety company to warn against the location. Grieg Seafood informed SalmonBusiness that the plan was to move the site in the summer.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Irish fisheries infringement penalties not incompatible with EU legislation

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has ruled that Irish legislation which penalises infringements of fisheries controls is not incompatible with EU legislation.

The CJEU made the ruling in a case where a Dutch skipper challenged the forfeiture of his fishing vessels catch and fishing gear worth €399,000 when he was convicted of illegal fishing offences after his UK-registered vessel was intercepted by the LE Samuel Beckett on 11 February 2015 during a sea fisheries protection patrol.

The fishing vessel was escorted back to Cork Harbour where the skipper was charged by Gardaí and appeared before the Cork Criminal Court in June 2015.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: FAO: COVID-19 likely to bring further disruptions to seafood in 2021

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Fisheries and aquaculture sectors globally have been hit hard by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and could face further disruption in this year as lockdowns affect supply and demand, according to a report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

The information paper, “The impact of COVID-19 on fisheries and aquaculture food systems” – which was featured at the 34th session of the FAO’s Committee on Fisheries (COFI) earlier this month – reports fish supply, consumption, and trade revenues are all expected to have declined in 2020 due to containment restrictions, while global aquaculture production is expected to fall by some 1.3 percent; the first drop recorded by the sector in several years.
