IN BRIEF - Worlds largest shrimp breeding centre in opperation

INDONESIA
Wednesday, December 08, 2010

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Monday inaugurated the world's biggest shrimp breeding center (broodstock) located in Bugbug village in Karangasem regency, Bali.

The broodstock, having a production capacity of 675,000 shrimps per year, is expected to improve the country's competitiveness in fishery sector, with shrimp becoming the main export commodity besides seaweed and tuna.

The president called for the improvement of fishery sector, considering that the country boasts huge potentials of marine resources in its 6 million square kilometer sea area.

He said fishery commodities should be prioritized for domestic market, especially to increase the consumption of fish and shrimp.

"The priority should be domestic market, and that supply chain should be made efficient, so that prices could be controlled at an affordable level and people could consume more fish products."

"The next target is export. We should have a good competitiveness because of tight competition for shrimp commodity in the foreign market," he added.

Last year, the country's export value for shrimp commodity reached USD 1.58 billion, contributing 63 per cent from the total export of fishery product of USD 2.47 billion, Minister of Fishery and Marine Affairs Fadel Muhammad said.

"In the period of 2010-2014, we expect shrimp production to increase by 74.7 per cent from 400,000 tonnes to 699,000 tonnes," he said.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Ghost nets are the most lethal plastic for marine life, according to WWF

WORLDWIDE
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Abandoned nets, protagonists of ghost fishing, are the most lethal plastic waste for marine species, says the conservation group WWF, which has launched a worldwide campaign to end this threat to life in the sea. The entity maintains that the problem is so serious that it is estimated that, worldwide, 66% of marine mammals, half of birds and all species of sea turtles have been trapped in them; some have been injured and others have died.

WWF warns that plastic is drowning the planet. He estimates that 11 million tons of that material end up in the ocean each year.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: How to meet the demand for fish products of the Chinese population?

CHINA
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Consumption continues to grow, both due to population growth and a diversification of preferences

By 2030, China will need between 6 and 18 million additional tons of fishery products to cover estimated domestic consumption, an amount that represents an increase of between 9 and 27% compared to current data. A study published in One Earth by researchers from the center Beatrice Crona, Emmy Wassénius, Max Troell and Patrik Henriksson together with colleagues from Australia, China, Canada, Malaysia and the United States, analyzes how China can cover this demand and includes three options : the first focuses on intensifying aquaculture production; the second to increase imports of fishery products; and the third to expand the fishing industry in distant waters.

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Salmon theft case in Northern Norway has grown in scope.

It’s been just over a year since an Estonian lorry driver in his 40s was remanded in custody and charged with embezzlement as well as smuggling salmon from Norway to the Baltics.

Since then, Norwegian and Estonian police have been cooperating on the investigation. In March, police confirmed that seven people had been arrested by Estonian police, charged with organised crime and fraud in connection with the case.
