Other Media | WorldFishing: Thai Union creates bone health supplement

Friday, January 15, 2021

Thai Union Ingredients, a subsidiary of Thai Union Group, has launched a new dietary supplement produced from tuna bones which can help promote healthy bones and teeth.

With its very fine particle size, UniQTMBONE can be incorporated in products without changing sensory attributes, delivering a range of nutrients for bone health. It can be added to a variety of food, taken as capsules or tablets or given as an additive to pet food. It is being produced at Thai Union Group’s recently-opened bone powder production facility at the Songkla Canning factory in southern Thailand.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: WWF: Mediterranean fisheries need far greater protection

Thursday, March 04, 2021

Protecting 30 percent of the Mediterranean Sea in specific areas will reverse the declining fish stock trend seen in the region and support the recovery of the wider ecosystem, according to new analysis compiled by WWF scientists.

While the E.U. last year pledged to protect 30 percent of land and sea areas by 2030, currently only 9.68 percent of the Mediterranean Sea has been designated for protection, with only 1.27 percent deemed as effectively protected. In its “30 by 30: Scenarios to recover biodiversity and rebuild fish stocks in the Mediterranean” report, WWF maintains that fish stocks will continue to decline if unsustainable fishing and other industrial activities continue.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: COVID-19 weighs on the import and export capacity of fishing in Spain

Wednesday, March 03, 2021

The value of exports fell by 13%; that of imports, 14.5

The pandemic has not prevented Spanish exports from the agri-food, fisheries and forestry sectors from improving, in global terms, in 2020. The “COVID Report - Foreign Trade, situation of the agri-food and fisheries sector” puts the value of 40,997 million euros in exports registered in the period between the months of April to December 2020, compared to 39,905 million in the same period of 2019. It is 2.7% more.

However, the news for fisheries is less positive: both exports and imports have fallen.

Other Media | The Fish Site: A simple means to improve shrimp farming efficiency

Wednesday, March 03, 2021

Shrimp farmers could save themselves money and reduce their environmental footprints through the use of more efficient aerators and adoption of techniques for operating these devices more effectively.

So suggest the authors of a new study, which analyses the aeration devices used in six shrimp farms in Thailand, the amount of energy used to power them and possible alternatives.

Aerators, which allow for greater feed inputs and increased shrimp stocking densities, come in designs including the paddlewheel, vertical turbine, diffuser and venturi. In Asian shrimp farms, the authors note, it also is popular to mount paddlewheels on floats and drive them with a power unit installed beside the pond.
