Other Media | iPac.Aquacultura: Lawsuits paralyze Trump's strategy to boost aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico

Thursday, August 06, 2020

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit yesterday declared federal Commerce Department regulations that would have allowed, for the first time, large-scale industrial offshore aquaculture operations in United States federal waters, to be illegal. The Court of Appeals upheld a 2018 Federal District Court decision that removes those regulations. The Trump Administration appealed the lower court decision and recently reiterated the Administration's commitment to develop commercial offshore aquaculture in federal waters. The 5th Circuit heard the case in January 2020.

The ‘Center for Food Safety’ filed the case in 2016 on behalf of a coalition of fishing and environmental organizations, shortly after the Department of Commerce issued regulations allowing industrial aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico, as the test region.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Japanese coho farmers target fresh to escape commodity prices

Thursday, August 06, 2020

Coho salmon farmers in Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture have a hard time making money when forced to go head-to-head with lower-priced imports from Chile.

To escape the price-taker role in a commodity market, a plan formulated by the Miyagi Fisheries Cooperative, the “Miyagi Prefecture coho salmon aquaculture reconstruction project,” promotes a focus on fresh products for the sushi/sashimi market to differentiate from frozen products from Chile. The prefectural fishery cooperative established the Miyagi Coho Salmon Promotion Association, based in Ishinomaki City, and registered a geographical indication for their brand “Miyagi Salmon” in 2017.

Trout farmer and processor Roger Hofseth does not see the need for emergency measures for trout.

On Monday, it was announced that the Norwegian seafood association Sjømatbedriftene, by chief executive Robert Eriksson, are asking the Minister of Fisheries for help against what is feared to be a market collapse for trout. In a letter to Minister of Fisheries Emil Ingebrigtsen, Eriksson proposed a 20 per-cent increase in the maximum allowed biomass (MAB).

“I simply fear that the market balance will be destroyed if nothing is done,” Eriksson told SalmonBusiness.

“Governments need to take action now to stop disease outbreaks in shrimp farms,” said Anton Immink, aquaculture director at SFP. “Disease disrupts the reliability of supply chains, threatens seafood sustainability and jobs, and continually costs the industry billions of dollars each year.”
