Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: £ 1m to enable English aquaculture companies to cope with the negative effects of COVID-19

Thursday, May 07, 2020

English aquaculture companies can apply for grants of up to a maximum of £ 10,000 per farm from the Fisheries Response Fund (FRF). This £ 10m fund, announced by Defra and HM Treasury on April 17, supports fishing and aquaculture companies that have been adversely affected by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As the British Government explains, around £ 1 million has been allocated to the FRF to enable aquaculture companies to meet their operating costs.

The fund is being managed by the Marine Management Organization (MMO) on behalf of Defra (the British Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Thai Union says smoked salmon business showed sales weakness

Thursday, May 07, 2020

Tuna giant known for its “Chicken of the Sea” brand also said that shutdown of Red Lobster chain contributed to EBITDA decline.

Seafood giant Thai Union posted its first-quarter results with operating profit up 49.9 per cent to EUR 43.6 million boosted mainly by tuna sales.

Though known for brands like John West, the Thai company also owns salmon companies such as the French distributor Europeenne De La Mer, Meralliance Armoric, Meralliance, Meralliance Poland as well as the Norwegian distributor Naco Trading.

The price of salmon saw some decline after a recent surge, it wrote. Salmon raw material prices in April were EUR 5.2/kg and EUR 6.3/kg overall for Q1 (up 19.9 per cent QoQ).

Other Media | FishFarmer: Grieg Shetland sees harvest and prices increase

Thursday, May 07, 2020

GRIEG Seafood has reported good price achievement at its Shetland operation during the start of this year.

Announcing its 2020 first quarter results today, Shetland produced a harvest of 2,047 tonnes, up from 1,788 tonnes a year ago. And it achieved an EBIT or operating profit per kilogramme of NOK 6.80 compared with a LOSS of NOK 13.93 in Q1 2019.

Grieg said the price improvement, however, had been set against reduced superior quality but offset by currency effects, adding:

Initiatives to improve biological performance, including more robust smolt, has increased the 12-month survival rate to 88 per cent (85 per cent in 2019). (There were) high sea lice pressure and treatments during the quarter, but also underlying cost improvements year-on-year.’ The company expects a second quarter harvest of 3,900 tonnes and a 17,000 tonne total for the whole of 2020.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Greenland's live cod season

Thursday, May 07, 2020

Royal Greenland is ready to start buying live cod from fishermen along the coast of Greenland.

‘We are allowed to fetch fish from Paamiut in the south to Disko Bay in the north this year, and so net cages are being delivered to fishermen throughout the area,’ said Royal Greenland operations manager Sten Sørensen.

‘The bottom net fishery in the Nuuk area is already in progress, and we are authorised to purchase 2700 tonnes of live cod in the Nuuk fjord. Initial feedback is that the net cages are being filled, so we are well underway,’ he said.

This is the sixth consecutive year that Royal Greenland purchases live cod, collected by well boat Maniitsoq, and brought to Royal Greenland’s factory in Maniitsoq, where the fish is processed to produce the delicate Nutaaq-Cod.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: UK retailers urged to reintroduce fish counters

Thursday, May 07, 2020

Trade body Seafood Scotland has written to the chief executives of the some of the United Kingdom’s leading supermarket chains on behalf of the seafood sector, asking them to reopen the fresh fish counters that were closed early into the country’s COVID-19 lockdown.

A number of retailers ceased operating their in-store counters so that staff could be redeployed to keep shelves sufficiently stocked to cope with the increased demand for other foods and essential items. However, Seafood Scotland has told these companies that with international markets closed off, and the U.K. restaurant and catering sector largely shut down, the entire sector has been devastated and is now relying on retail for survival.

Only Morrisons has reopened its fresh counters in recent days to support the meat and fish sectors, it said.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Anchovy still does not raise its price due to the lack of purchase in restaurants

Thursday, May 07, 2020

The Cantabrian fishermen still do not raise their heads. In reality, the price of anchovy continues without registering a rise, which puts the sector in check, since the coast of this species is the key moment of the season. Anchovy caught in Asturias yesterday, a good size for the canning of 27 and 28 grains per kilo, was paid at an average of 2.20 euros-kilo, which clearly showed the problematic situation they are suffering from. prices. Likewise, many anchovy discharges are left without a buyer, applying the withdrawal price of 1.20 euros-kilo.

In the first week of the campaign, the average price at auctions of Basque markets was paid below the euro and this low price causes the profitability alarms to go off.

The reason that the price of anchovy is below its expectations was closely related to the size of the fish caught, until now less than desired and the absence of its purchase by restaurants.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: The world’s largest delousing vessel will be delivered to Mowi

Thursday, May 07, 2020

The Smir Group has signed a contract with Mowi for the delivery of a delousing vessel.

The “Hydro Patriot” vessel is 73 meters long and 16 meters wide, and will be one of the largest delousing units in the industry. The vessel is equipped with eight Hydrolicer lines of state-of-the-art technology and is also rigged to perform other key tasks for the salmon farmer. The vessel will operate mainly for the Mowi Region North and Nova Sea.

The installation job will be done by Fiskerstrand Verft in the Western part of Norway, and the installation is estimated to take eleven weeks.

“We are very concerned about having the right capacity to meet the needs of our facilities. Gentle and effective treatment is then important so that good lice control in all plants is observed. The new vessel will be an important tool in this work, and we look forward to getting “Hydro Patriot” up and running,” says Mowi’s production manager Roger Pettersen in a press release.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Study links aquaculture, global warming and antimicrobial resistance

Wednesday, May 06, 2020

The development of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria in aquaculture, which is affecting fish production and human health worldwide, has been highlighted by a team of researchers.

Antimicrobial resistance is responsible for some 700,000 deaths each year worldwide. And research by a team of researchers from IRD and CIRAD has established for the first time a link between global warming and an increased risk of antimicrobial resistance, and warned against inappropriate use of antibiotics.

Their study, which was published in Nature Communications last month, details how the researchers examined data from more than 400 scientific articles, referring to over 10,000 bacteria of aquacultural origin, from 40 countries.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert : Norway salmon exports worth 13% less in April

Wednesday, May 06, 2020

The amount of Norwegian salmon exported in April was down just 3% compared to the same period in 2019, but the value fell by 13%.

Figures from the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) show that 83,100 tonnes of salmon with a value of NOK 5.4 billion (£423 million) were exported. The value was NOK 813m lower than April last year.

“Reduced prices due to lower demand and increased air freight costs have led to a fall in export value in April,” said NSC seafood analyst Paul Aandahl in the Council’s weekly update of how Norway’s seafood business has been affected by Covid-19.
