Other Media | SeafoodSource: Fish welfare must take higher priority, Salmon Group says

Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Salmon Group, a large network of family-owned fish farming and aquaculture companies that collectively represent 12 percent of the overall production volume in Norway, recently released the report “Fish welfare in fish farming – What is that?" which challenges the commercial salmon-farming industry to aim much higher and be far more closely aligned on issues related to the well-being of these fish throughout their lifecycle. In an interview with SeafoodSource, Salmon Group Chief Advisor Fish Health and Nutrition Ingebjørg Oddsdotter Sævareid said that while there has been a strengthened focus on fish welfare recently.

IN BRIEF - Zanzibar secures $3 bln from Turkish firm to boost seafood business

Monday, November 30, 2020

Turkish investors to finance ambitious project in Indian Ocean archipelago of Tanzania, East Africa

A Tanzanian firm has sealed a $3 billion deal with a Turkish investment firm to develop modern fish processing facilities and a landing port, local officials said Saturday.

The investment in Zanzibar-based Salmin Fisheries by Northland Capital Investment is part of the government’s “blue” economy policy to give the ailing fishing sector a new lease on life, said Abdullah Kombo, Zanzibar’s minister for blue economy and fisheries.

He hailed the move as a milestone for the economy of the semi-autonomous Indian Ocean archipelago, and provide employment opportunities and markets for artisanal fishers.

Salmin Ibrahim, the company’s executive director, said the project is aimed to support small-scale fishers, adding: “The investors are willing to disburse the funds so that this ambitious project can take off as planned.”

The blue economy is one of the flagship sectors that Hussein Mwinyi, Zanzibar’s new president, has vowed to invest heavily in.

Deep-sea fishing, fish farming, and fish processing are some of the areas the East African government is seeking serious investments for to support struggling fishing communities.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: 'The pandemic will lead to enormous changes in the market and consumer patterns'

Monday, November 30, 2020

Atlantic Sapphire CEO and founder Johan Andreassen believes the coronavirus can be an advantage for the land-based salmon.

“The pandemic will lead to enormous changes in the market and consumer patterns. Here in the United States, we see a big push to focus more on proper nutrition and good health. People note that there is a link between overall health and how sick one becomes from the virus. Seafood consumption in general in the US is significantly up after the coronavirus,” Andreassen told the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.

Andreassen added that he believes that increasingly more expensive air freight during the pandemic reinforced his argument that being close to the market will produce good earnings.

Tor Andre Rønning, senior engineer with Norwegian firm Cflow, said the company had developed its new patented Flowline design concept based on prioritising the main functions of the fish handling system.

“This means reducing bends, valves, lifting height, and piping to a minimum on the more frequently used routes,” explained the engineer in a press release.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Fisheries Act Does Not Compensate For Loss Of EU Seafood Market Access

Monday, November 30, 2020

Following the transition of the UK’s Fisheries Bill in to law as the 2020 Fisheries Act, Scotland’s Fisheries Secretary Fergus Ewing has warned that nothing in this legislation can compensate for the loss of seafood markets in the EU and the ensuing wider damage that it will cause to coastal communities.

‘While this Act will provide a necessary framework to manage fisheries from 1st January 2021, we continue to believe that the best future for Scotland is as an independent nation in the European Union,’ he said, commenting that with only a few weeks to go to the end of the transition period, the UK Government has yet to clarify how it will provide the multi-annual funding that was made available by the EU.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: The European Union (EU) and the Cook Islands government have renewed their agreement on tuna

Friday, November 27, 2020

The European Union (EU) and the government of the Cook Islands in the Pacific have renewed their agreement on tuna in its current terms for one year. The agreement is very important for the tuna fleets.

The agreement protocol ceased to be in force last October (October 14, 2016 - October 13, 2020), under the name of “the Protocol”, which established the fishing opportunities and the financial contribution provided for in the agreement partnership in the field of sustainable fisheries between the European Union and the Government of the Cook Islands, pending the completion of negotiations for the renewal of the protocol.

Friday, November 27, 2020

The United Kingdom's Marine Management Organization (MMO) has published a new guide with the aim of helping fishing companies prepare as of January 1, 2021, the day when ‘Brexit’ ends.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Salmon prices on the rise again

Thursday, November 26, 2020

Salmon prices may be starting to climb out of the doldrums, new data suggests.
Statistics Norway, whose weekly updates tend to act as a marker for the rest of the North Atlantic industry , says the average price of fresh or chilled salmon rose by 1.3 per cent at the end of last week (week 47) to NOK 48.58 per kilo.
Meanwhile exports of fresh or chilled farmed salmon ended the period at 21,750 tonnes, up eight per cent from week 46.

The higher price and export figure is likely to be the result of increased demand in the run up to Christmas.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Data Collection Programme Calls On Industry For Support

Thursday, November 26, 2020

Skippers in England and Wales are needed to contribute to fisheries data usually collected by scientific observers, as current Covid-19 restrictions mean that Cefas fisheries observers are not able to board commercial fishing vessels to go to sea.

Cefas has been collecting biological data from commercial landings at fish markets, merchants and on quaysides in England and Wales since the 1950s. The observer programme which also collects the same data from discards offshore has been running continuously since 2002. In March, the lockdown brought this activity to a halt. The onshore programme was able to resume safely in June, however, the at sea observer programme is still severely restricted.
