IN BRIEF - Danish Parliament agrees on low-impact fishing scheme

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

An agreement has been reached by a broad majority of the Danish Parliament on a coastal fishing scheme which offers advantages for fishing with low-impact gear such as static nets and seine nets.

Under the scheme, fishing quotas are reserved for coastal fisheries and fishing with low-impact gears, with open and closed options, with fishermen in the open sector able to opt out after three years if they prefer not to be permanently committed.

The closed sector has been made more attractive with larger quota supplements when low-impact fishing gears are used. The open sector of the coastal scheme will be evaluated after three years.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Industry leaders say transparency is key to global aquaculture sustainability

Friday, July 10, 2020

In a recent webinar hosted by the aquaculture technology investment firm Hatch, an international panel of aquaculture leaders connected virtually to discuss the importance of sustainability in the industry and the space innovation on that front, now and in the future.

“The world now produces more than 155 million tons of seafood every year. Around 55 percent of that comes from aquaculture. As our population is growing, demand continues to rise, and within the next 50 years we will have to grow more seafood than we have ever grown in the entire existence of mankind,” said Moritz Mueller, the head of marketing and communications at HATCH. “At the same time, understanding the limits of our oceans and protecting them, in order to keep our planet healthy is an essential task.

Other Media | Fish Farmer:Major expansion from Icelandic salmon company

Friday, July 10, 2020

ICELAND’S determination to be a major player in salmon farming has taken another big step forward with the announcement that the company Fiskeldi Austfjarða hf, which trades under the name Ice Fish Farm, has received provisional clearance to add another 7,000 tonnes of biomass in the east of the country.

The company already has an operating licence for just over 20,000 tonnes at two locations in the region. This latest development will be centred on a small former fishing community known as Stöðvarfjörður, situated 385 miles east of the capital Reykjavik and which has fewer than 200 inhabitants. Since the loss of conventional fishing most of its young people have left for brighter lights so the investment will almost certainly be welcomed as an important economic boost.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Austral's newbuild heads south

Friday, July 10, 2020

The latest addition to the Austral Fisheries fleet, the new Cape Arkona, is heading around the world for Fremantle in Australia after leaving the Båtgygg yard at Måløy in Norway, with a delivery trip of more than a month ahead.

This unique fishing vessel is designed to be able to switch between three fishing methods in a single trip. While it will fish primarily with longline gear for Patagonian toothfish in the Southern Ocean, Cape Arkona also has capacity to fish with traps and is rigged to trawl for icefish.

The 66.90 metre, 15 metre beam Cape Arkona’s arrangement has been developed between the owners, designers Skipskompetanse and Båtbygg. The hull was built by Marine Projects in Gdansk and brought to Måløy for completion.

Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: With a volume of 6,340 tonnes, organic aquaculture production in Spain maintains its production in 2019

Friday, July 10, 2020

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has released the 2019 Provisions Statistics of organic production in Spain. General data confirms the trend of sustained growth and the consolidation of the organic production sector (agricultural and animal) in Spain, which lead our country to lead the EU.

The big data that Spain manages has little to do with aquaculture, whose organic production in 2019 was 6339.86 tons (which includes fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants). Conventional production in 2018 for all species was 348,395 tons, which shows the meager nature of organic production.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Austevoll Seafood’s conglomerate discount narrows

Thursday, July 09, 2020

Increasing willingness to price pelagic business.

On Monday this week, SalmonBusiness reported the conglomerate discount for Austevoll discount has increased, meaning that the fishing company was worth less than its Lerøy shares.

In fact, Austevoll Seafood’s large scale fisheries activities at the week’s entrance on the Oslo Stock exchange had a negative value of EUR 200 million.

Although the article did not involve any recommendation, it could form the basis for a so-called long/short-trade, where investors would buy Austevoll and sell Lerøy. It would thus be a market neutral trade, with one betting that the gap in pricing between the two shares is going in – regardless of how the stock exchange generally develops.
