Other Media | The Fish Site: 'Designer algae' could make bivalve hatcheries 10 times more efficient

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, February 02, 2021

A way of creating ‘designer’ algae that could increase the efficiency of production of shellfish larvae for the aquaculture industry has been developed by scientists in Scotland.

The Scottish mussel aquaculture industry currently produces around 8,000 tonnes a year using wild larvae and is therefore reliant on a successful spawning year. This method is also a limiting factor in the expansion of the industry, which has the potential to become a major part of Scotland’s economy.

However, scientists at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) have discovered a new way of farming larvae in a hatchery by feeding them with algae which have been selected and grown in a laboratory for optimal growth.

Other Media | FiskerForum: MPA Fishing Ban – Another Industry Sell-Out

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, February 02, 2021

The NFFO has hit back at the Marine Management Organisation’s announced intention to outlaw towed gears in the Dogger Bank SAC and the majority of three other offshore MPAs, describing the move as a ‘further sell-out of fishing’.

Describing the announcement as a shocking development, with a decision following zero consultation with those affected, NFFO assistant chief executive Dale Rodmell commented that the knock-on effects of what he called a brutal approach will lead to displaced fishing effort.

‘We have worked with managers and government conservation advisors for more than a decade on this site.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: CEFAS has a new director with the challenge of continuing to offer the best fisheries research to the British Gove

UNITED KINGDOM
Tuesday, February 02, 2021

Neil Hornby takes charge of the UK Center for Environmental Sciences, Fisheries and Aquaculture

Neil Hornby has taken over from him as the new CEO of CEFAS (Center for Environmental Sciences, Fisheries and Aquaculture), the UK scientific body. Neil joins Cefas with more than 20 years of experience in DEFRA (Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), where he held the position of Director of Marine and Fisheries since 2016.

The main challenge facing the new head of CEFAS will be to ensure that the research center continues to provide the UK government with the science and 'baseline' evidence necessary to support the achievement of government objectives for animal health, fisheries and marine environment, explains the Government. An objective that, after 'Brexit', acquires even more relevance.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Seafood exporters see positive signs in China despite COVID concerns, shipping crunch

CHINA
Monday, February 01, 2021

Seafood exporters are predicting a recovery in the Chinese seafood market this year after a bruising 2020.

China’s economic outlook improved last week, after it reported overall GDP growth of 2.3 percent for 2020, after a strong recovery in the fourth quarter. The country has weathered the last year better than most large Western economies, which spent far more on support to laid-off workers, compared to a Chinese emphasis on virus control measures. Whereas the U.S. economy declined by 23 percent in GDP compared to the same period last year and the Eurozone economy declined by 21 percent.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Virtual Global Seafood Market Conference runs from 01 to 05 February

UNITED STATES
Thursday, January 28, 2021

The President and CEO of Seattle Fish Co., Derek Figueroa, is the new Chair of the National Fisheries Institute. Figueroa helms the Denver-based seafood distributor that boasts more than a hundred years in business.

“Seattle Fish has a legacy of using technology and engagement to do more in the seafood space,” said Figueroa.

“In 1918 this company created a cold chain system that used rail cars, sawdust and ice to transport fresh seafood to the landlocked state of Colorado. We were getting customers what they needed. That’s what NFI is doing with the Virtual Global Seafood Market Conference. We can’t meet in person, but the industry needs the data and insight we’ve come to rely on from GSMC. So we’re doing it virtually.”
