A Maine company’s pending acquisition of a foreign counterpart could give it a boost as it seeks to become one of the first in North America to prove the commercial viability of an emerging industry — fish farms that grow Atlantic salmon in large tanks instead of at sea.
Emergent Holdings’ plan to buy majority ownership of Kuterra, North America’s first land-based salmon grower, should give Emergent subsidiary Whole Oceans of Bucksport access to Kuterra’s experience using an old technology, land-based recirculating water systems, in a new way: to grow Atlantic salmon, said Jason Huffman, a senior reporter at the seafood industry trade journal Undercurrent News.
A Nelson-based marine engineering firm is harvesting good feedback from its latest vessel.
It was a day of celebration for Aroma Aquaculture as their new mussel harvester Kakara was officially launched at Havelock Marina on Friday.
Following a blessing by local iwi and the traditional breaking of a bottle over the bow, around 160 guests from the local community and aquaculture industry were given the chance to look on board the vessel while sampling the best of Havelock's aquaculture bounty.
PORTLAND - Genetically engineered salmon is heading to store shelves in the U.S., but it won’t be coming from the biggest salmon farming state in the country.
Massachusetts-based AquaBounty Technologies has said American supermarkets could begin selling the much-debated fish by the end of 2020. Its fish are modified with added genes from other fish to grow about twice as fast as conventional salmon.
The company modifies Atlantic salmon, a species that forms the backbone of the worldwide salmon aquaculture industry. Maine is the biggest producer of conventional Atlantic salmon in the U.S., sometimes producing more than 35 million pounds of salmon per year, and its industry is poised to grow. Two new major salmon farms are in the approvals process in the state.
The New Zealand China Trade Association announced the winners of their HSBC NZCTA China Business Awards at a ceremony in Auckland last night. These are arguably New Zealand’s most important acknowledgement of the deepening trade and investment relationship between China and New Zealand.
The Supreme Award winner (overall winner from six categories) was the Fiordland Lobster Company. The company was also the winner of the NZCTA’s trade award category (the Trade & Enterprise award for trade between China and New Zealand).
The Fiordland Lobster Company is New Zealand’s largest exporter of live Fiordland Rock Lobster, a high quality, high value, cold water lobster. Marketed under the KiwiLobster brand, the fish is flown by helicopter live from its landing by Fiordland fishermen (and also by fishermen in other areas such as Mahia, Otago and the Wairarapa) to processors in New Zealand. The catch is then air-exported from Christchurch or Auckland to international destinations, the chief of which is China. The fast export, receipt of product and on-sale to Chinese consumers has been made possible through an increase in air services between China and New Zealand.
AquaBounty Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AQB) (“AquaBounty” or the “Company”), a biotechnology company focused on enhancing productivity in the aquaculture market, is pleased to announce the appointment of David F. Melbourne, Jr. as Chief Commercial Officer effective on June 17, 2019, and the commencement of the commercial production of AquAdvantage Salmon at the Company’s Indiana farm.

He previously held senior positions at Castleberry/Snow’s Brands, Inc., primarily in operations and marketing. As the Company begins its commercialization of AquAdvantage Salmon, Mr. Melbourne’s 25 years of marketing and strategic planning experience will be a strong asset to AquaBounty in developing its customer business model.
