IN BRIEF - Governor promotes Alaska Seafood in UK

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, November 07, 2011

Governor Sean Parnell promoted one of Alaska’s top exports during a trip to the United Kingdom this week - seafood. The governor and representatives from the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute met with key customers in London.

Governor Parnell joined senior executives from Waitrose, a signature UK retailer, during a store visit in Sandhurst. The store manager highlighted the range of Alaska seafood products available. These include smoked and canned salmon, and fillets, among others.

The value of Alaska’s seafood exports was USD 1.8 billion in 2010, up 12.2 per cent from the previous year. The increase is attributed to the best salmon harvest in 18 years.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Investigation examining MSC suspension of Zoneco Group scallop certification continues

CHINA
Tuesday, July 14, 2020

A resolution has yet to be found for the suspension of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification of Zoneco Group Co’s scallop fishery.

A dispute between the seafood company and the third-party accreditor overseeing the certification saw China’s first MSC fishery certification suspended earlier this year. In January of 2020, the first notice for suspension of fisheries certificate came due to a contractual issue between the certifying agency Acoura – a unit of U.K. based Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) – and Zoneco (also known as Zhangzidao), the MSC noted in a statement to SeafoodSource.

NORWAY
Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Approximately 5,000 litres of diesel have leaked from a feed barge at a salmon farm operated by Norwegian company Nordlaks at Dypingen in Troms.

“The Norwegian Coastal Administration and the local fire service were notified of the incident, and the latter is now leading the operation, which also involves our crews,” said Nordlaks communications manager Lars Fredrik Martinussen in a press release.

“The wind has brought the discharge ashore over a stretch of about one kilometre in the immediate vicinity (east, southeast) of the site. Work is now being done to collect the discharge with the use of absorbents.”

Other Media | FiskerForum: Russian Pollock plant gears up for September start

RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Commissioning equipment has begun at the Russian Pollock factory being built by the Russian Fishery Company (RFC) in Primorsky Territory in the Russian Far East, ahead of a 1st September commissioning date for the new factory.

The Russian Pollock factory is the largest fish processing enterprise in Primorsky Territory, built under the Russian government’s investment quotas programme to boost the fishing and shipbuilding sectors.

‘Large-scale construction is possible entirely due to investment quota program. I am confident that investment construction is today the most effective and only possible way for our fishing industry to become a driver for the development of coastal regions and individual industries,’ said Gleb Frank, Chairman of the Board of Directors of RFC.

Other Media | Global Aquaculture Alliance: Ascending U.K. prawn farms now riding out the coronavirus storm

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Despite the unprecedented disruption caused by COVID-19, the UK’s two commercial shrimp farming ventures continue to capitalize on the market’s growing demand for trustworthy, locally produced food

Brits love shrimp. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. In the United Kingdom, the word “shrimp” tends to refer to the small brown species Crangon crangon, which is common to the country’s coasts. As delicious as these are, the shrimp most coveted by U.K. consumers are better known in the market as “prawns,” mainly comprising the sweet, coldwater Pandalus borealis, caught in the Barents Sea and fisheries around Iceland, Greenland and northern Canada, and also the larger, widely farmed warmwater white-legged and black tiger varieties, Penaeus vannamei and Penaeus monodon, respectively.

The Ricardo Fuentes Group has inaugurated new facilities in Huelva. This business group operates in more than twenty countries, it has allocated 1.4 million euros in a new space for wholesale and the production of fishery products. The 1,000 square meters of surface make up a shellfish cooker.

Some of them take important steps towards their growth, which is a sign that good winds blow. This is the case of the Ricardo Fuentes e Hijos Group which, since yesterday, has had modern facilities in front of the new fish market in Huelva, reinforcing its presence in the Andalusian community, where Cádiz, El Puerto de Santa María is already very close to the fish market of the largest fishing port in Andalusia: Isla Cristina.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Carrefour signs an agreement with the Roquetas de Mar fish market to distribute swordfish

SPAIN
Monday, July 13, 2020

Carrefour has reached an agreement with the Almería fish market in Roquetas de Mar to buy 70 tons of swordfish until the end of the year. This amount represents the total quota of four boats, so the agreement with Carrefour "ensures the viability of these boats and their crews," the hypermarket chain said in a statement.

The measure is part of the chain's support policies with the Spanish fishing sector, among which are other actions such as the agreement, through Puerto Celeiro, with a group of Spanish shipowners to buy and market 200 tons of hake of skewer and fine whiting, during the past month of June.

Other Media | The Fish Site: A light clean for sensitive marine instruments

WORLDWIDE
Monday, July 13, 2020

An innovative antifouling device uses UV light to prevent mussels and barnacles – as well as algae, bacteria, and other microorganisms – from encrusting underwater sensors used in fish farms.

Biofouling, the accumulation of unwanted material on solid surfaces under water, can lead to the detriment of function, impeding or even interfering with aquaculture operations. For example, biofouling on nets is known to reduce oxygenation levels in pens, while even thin biofilms of algae can provoke misleading results by measuring equipment.

Relating to the latter, the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW) has developed a new antifouling UV spotlight.
