Friday, February 12, 2021

Seafood Industry Australia (SAI) and Women in Seafood Australasia (WISA) have teamed up to launch a mental health and well-being pilot programme for commercial seafood industry workers.

Supported by AUS$600k in government funding, the Stay Afloat Australia trial has seen the appointment of three ‘trusted advocates’ in the targeted locations of Darwin in NT, Lakes Entrance, Victoria and Newcastle, NSW.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Seafood Disruption Scheme draws fire

Thursday, February 11, 2021

The UK government’s compensation for seafood businesses affected by the twin challenges of Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic opened for applications this week, amid criticisms that it excludes many of those worst affected.

The UK-wide Seafood Disruption Support Scheme will provide up to £23m in financial assistance to businesses that suffered a financial loss because of delays related to the export of fresh or live fish and shellfish to the EU during January 2021. The fund will be paid retrospectively to cover losses incurred between 1-31 January 2021.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Norway sets preliminary sandeel advice at 110000 tonnes for 2021

Thursday, February 11, 2021

Three strong year classes plus signs of another good year mean that Norwegian Marine Research Institute recommends a historically high preliminary quota for sandeel in 2021.

Last summer, the sandeel quota was a record 250,000 tonnes. That was after the researchers were able to increase their quota council twice from 70,000 to 110,000 to 250,000 tonnes.

The researchers highlighted several years with solid year classes combined with relatively modest hosting which is the reason why that for the high preliminary quota. Also, 2020 was also a year with a lot of zooplankton in the sea which feeds sandeels.

Six ways of helping to ensure that the global seafood industry – covering both fisheries and aquaculture – become more sustainable were outlined in a new report which has been published by the United Nations this week.

Over three calls, 50 stakeholders from policy, business, science and finance discussed how the sustainable development of the seafood sector can be accelerated.

The first meeting focused on the role of measurement, including the tools and means to enable effective comparison of seafood companies.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Norwegian salmon prices fall as shuttered restaurant trade takes its toll

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

Norway’s seafood exports fell by a double-digit percentage in January 2021 compared to 2020, largely the result of ongoing downturns related to COVID-19.

Norway exported NOK 8.1 billion (USD 941.5 million, EUR 786.1 million) worth of seafood products last month, some 16 percent or NOK 1.6 billion (USD 185.8 million, EUR 155.3 million) less than it sold to overseas markets in January 2020, with reduced demand for salmon accounting for much of the downturn. Reduced exports of trout and fresh cod compared to the record month of January 2020 also contributed to the lower earnings.
