Other Media | FiskerForum: Vonin moorings and nets for high-energy sites

Thursday, June 18, 2020

With high-energy aquaculture sites to oversee in Scotland’s Western Isles, Mowi Regional Seawater Manager Kris Laird wanted to see for himself how Faroese Fish Farmers operate in highly exposed environments that regularly withstand exceptional hostile conditions.

Early last year he arranged a trip with some Mowi colleagues from Scotland to the Faroe Islands, visiting key suppliers to the Faroese aquaculture sector and to see how fish farms operate under the tough conditions around the islands, with year-round strong currents and wild weather that is a feature of the Faroese winter months.

Mowi subsequently chose Vónin to be a preferred supplier of moorings and nets, with JT Electric and KJ Hydraulic also supplying equipment to a number of sites in Scotland.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Difficult governance of China's long-distance fleet worries the fishing world

Thursday, June 18, 2020

The latest report from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) presents the large scale that the Chinese long-distance fleet DWF has acquired alongside gaps and challenges in China's governance capacity. Experts using specific examples review the findings and implications of this key fleet in West Africa

A recently released report by the London-based research center (ODI) highlights problems of scale and governance of the long-distance fleet. The authors analyzed data from 2017 and 2018 using big data analytical techniques, ensemble algorithms, and geographic information systems (GIS). Some of its key findings are that China's DWF fleet could be much larger than the estimated 3,000 ships, with a significant percentage marked out to other countries, primarily African nations.

Other Media | Aquaculture iPac: Skretting launches the first of its AquaCare concept products to improve water quality in aquaculture

Thursday, June 18, 2020

Skretting has expanded its scope of activity beyond the food supply. It has done so with a new line of products, AquaCare, specifically focused on offering practical solutions to improve water quality in fish and shrimp farming systems. “In certain regions, aquaculture faces an increasing challenge in terms of access to clean and safe water. Thus, the AquaCare concept was born as an essential part of our commitment to improve the sustainability of the industry, ”says Skretting. And, as you recall, water is a vital resource that faces increasing demand and a changing climate. The data is there. According to the United Nations, in the last 100 years the world demand for water has multiplied by six, "with which - added the same sources - the responsible administration of water has become a global priority".

Other Media | SeafoodSource: WTO talks on curbing fishing subsidies may restart in July

Thursday, June 18, 2020

There are some signs that talks at the World Trade Organization on ending harmful fishery subsidies may restart next month after being suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

A Heads of Delegation meeting has been announced by the negotiations chair for 25 June to begin discussing the latest draft proposal for a deal. A follow-up meeting for delegation leaders on 21 July will set a potential Autumn work program for negotiators.

“We’re basically waiting for the WTO to fully open up again,” a Western delegate to the talks told SeafoodSource. “They’ve taken the first step, setting up a big room for meetings with one person per delegation, but that won’t work for the fisheries negotiations. I’ve heard speculation that maybe we start meetings [of regular delegation members] again in July. There’s some work being done behind the scenes, but my sense is that it’s somewhat limited.”

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Chinese authorities say no evidence shows virus is host in salmon, but each batch of imported fish has to be tested

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Chris Lischewski sentenced to 40 months in prison, USD 100,000 fine

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Former Bumble Bee President and CEO Chris Lischewski was sentenced to 40 months in prison and given a USD 100,000 fine (EUR 88,000) as part of his role in a conspiracy to fix the prices of canned tuna sold in the United States from 2011 to 2013.

The sentence comes after a three-week-long trial in December ended with a jury finding Lischewski guilty of being involved in a scheme between Bumble Bee, StarKist, and Chicken of the Sea to fix the price of tuna. Lischewski was facing a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of USD 1 million (EUR 887,500).

The sentence, according to U.S. District Court Judge Edward M. Chen, is in accordance to the severity of the conspiracy, which was “widespread, pervasive, and affecting the entire industry.”

Other Media | The Fish Site: Norway denies China Covid links

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

A new wave of COVID-19 in China has prompted the country to stop importing Norwegian salmon, after the virus was detected on boards used for cutting up imported salmon at the Xinfadi food market in Beijing.

In the past four days, over 100 new cases of infection have been reported in the Chinese capital alone, with the majority of cases linked to the market. Following the outbreak, stores in China have stopped selling salmon.

The Norwegian Seafood Council has issued a statement to reassure buyers “about the food safety of [Norwegian] seafood products in light of several unsubstantiated rumours regarding the source of infection.”

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Hatch extends deadline for aquaculture start-ups

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Aquaculture investor Hatch has extended the application deadline for its fourth accelerator programme.

Start-ups wanting to join the programme were due to have applied by last Friday but have now been given a further two weeks.

In a message to those on its mailing list announcing the new deadline of June 26, Hatch said: “If we know one thing, it is that aquaculture and alternative protein innovation is hard. And time intensive. And sleep-depriving. Which, as you know, is not good at all. People who don’t sleep enough do all kinds of crazy things, like forgetting about deadlines.
