IN BRIEF - Tasting the future of farmed seafood

UNITED KINGDOM
Saturday, March 26, 2011

LONDON - Aquaculture, the farming of fish and sea creatures under controlled conditions, is the fastest growing area of animal food production and now accounts for around half the world's consumed seafood.

According to the United Nation's Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the fish farming industry increased on average at an annual rate of 6.6 per cent between 1970 and 2008.

Dr Matthias Halwart, senior aquatic officer at the FAO, said that globally we're eating more fish than ever before.

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.

FRANCE
Monday, October 19, 2020

Los pescadores franceses podrían pagar para pescar en aguas británicas después del Brexit. Según un experto, los pescadores franceses podrían verse obligados a pagar por pescar en aguas británicas después del Brexit.

El primer ministro Boris Johnson podría facturar al presidente francés Emmanuel Macron millones cada año por los pescadores que quieren acceder a nuestras aguas. Por ello, Johnson y Macron podrían llegar a un acuerdo sobre la pesca, pero solo si el presidente francés da marcha atrás en sus demandas.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Meet Germany's pioneering shrimp producer

GERMANY
Monday, October 19, 2020

India, Ecuador… or Bavaria? The third location might not seem like the obvious place to source vannamei shrimp from but Crusta Nova, a German agtech and seafood company, is producing 30 tonnes of them a year, from an RAS near Munich.

The company was founded in 2012 by Dr Fabian Riedel, a lawyer who decided to hang up his gown at the age of 29 to try something completely different.
“My former co-founder had fish ponds outside Munich and, having studied at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Weihenstephan, decided to farm yabbies [crayfish] in a small RAS,” he explains.

It is the final crucial point in the feed pellet’s journey from silo to pen, and now Gael Force have developed a feed spreader that well and truly steps up to the mark to deliver feed safely and gently into the pen.

Robustly engineered, SeaFeed Spreader has an adjustable outlet nozzle which can be customised in its alignment by site operatives to suit different feed types and pen sizes thus offering a variable spread to suit individual farm feeding styles.

IN BRIEF - Eels released in south China river to sustain fishing resources

CHINA
Sunday, October 18, 2020

Some 2,000 kg of adult eels and 35,000 young eels have been released into the Desheng River, south China's Guangdong Province, to proliferate the eel breeding population in the natural watercourse.

Eels are a cash species in China. Due to the combined influence of the global climate, environmental challenges and human activities, aquatic resources have decreased sharply worldwide.

Eel farming has been developed in south China's Pearl River Delta. In May, the eel species in Shunde City was included in China's national list of famous and excellent agricultural products.

This eel release activity, which was carried out Friday, is expected to help restore the eel stock in the area. Scientists will trace the growth of the released eels in order to explore ways to promote the conservation of aquatic resources.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: WWF says climate change 'threatens half of world fish production'

WORLDWIDE
Friday, October 16, 2020

The environmental organization WWF has published a report on the occasion of World Food Day prepared by the NGO with the collaboration of Agrocampus Ouest (France), the University of British Columbia (Canada), the Charles Darwin Foundation (Galapagos) and the Institute Nacional de Pesca (Ecuador) which reveals that "half of the world's fish production is at risk due to the climate crisis." I can see the full report here (in English).

This is because small-scale fishers, who account for half of the world's fish production, "are disproportionately affected by the consequences of a warmer ocean."
