IN BRIEF - How salmon farming can scale up sustainably

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

FEW parts of Scotland’s economy have attracted more interest over the last couple of years than aquaculture – particularly its largest constituent, salmon farming. In the past six months alone, it has been the subject of new environmental regulations, reports from ScottishParliament committees, and a subsequent parliamentary debate, and a BBC Panorama report.

Such a level of inquiry and debate is to be welcomed – if anything, it underlines the increasingly important role that aquaculture is playing in Scotland. Indeed, the sector’s latent potential was highlighted by a recent report from Highlands and Islands Enterprise, which found that the marine economy could be worth as much GBP 5 billion by 2035.

IN BRIEF - A Nova Scotia fisherman made a one in a million catch

CANADA
Friday, May 29, 2020

As a reporter living near the ocean in Nova Scotia, I get to see some incredible marine life as when people make discoveries along the coastline. I've seen my share of whales, came within an arm's length of a great white shark, but never had I seen an albino lobster.

Until now.

Lobster fisherman AJ Francis tells me "It was the last trap on the trawl and I saw something white," from aboard his boat docked at the Pictou Landing wharf.

The start of lobster season had to be delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions, but for Francis, it certainly started out with a bang.

Albino lobsters are considered to be 1 in 100 million, the rarest of the rare.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Mediterranean tuna prices expected to drop this year

FRANCE
Friday, May 29, 2020

As the tuna season in the Mediterranean opens, this year’s fishery should look positive as the 4781 tonne quotas for the French purse seine fleet have close to pre-recovery period levels of 4677 tonnes back in 2007.

Prices for red tuna (bluefin) are expected to be lower this year, as fishing is hit by the uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘Prices were close to €10 per kilo in 2019, with no significant difference prices between line-caught and seine-caught fish.’

According to PO Sathoan, which represents trawlers, small scale vessels and around half of the French Mediterranean tuna fleet, the recovery of the tuna fishery hasn’t happened by accident, but is the result of efforts by all sectors of the industry in adhering to ICCAT scientists’ advice.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: China’s domestic salmon sector facing pressure from bad economy, Norwegian imports

CHINA
Friday, May 29, 2020

China’s economy is weakening, and that could spell the end of the country’s fledgling marine salmon sector.

In April, the CKGSB Business Conditions Index (BCI) registered a score of 42.2, up less than one percentage point from March (41.3), but well below the 50-point mark, which suggests a positive reading. The latest monthly reading of the index, compiled by the respected Beijing business school of the same name, comes with a warning for the future.

“From this, we can tell that the economy is still extremely weak,” the BCI report said. “Without strong government policy intervention, economic growth is unlikely to be very positive going forward. Indeed, if by the end of the year, GDP growth is above zero, this will be considered a decent result.”
