IN BRIEF - 5 Major Aquaculture Market to Reach USD 87.6 Bn, Globally, by 2025 at 4.9% CAGR, Says Allied Market Research

UNITED STATES
Monday, October 14, 2019

PORTLAND, Oregon - Allied Market Research recently published a report, titled, "5 Major Aquaculture Market by Fish Type (Pompano, Snappers, Salmon, Milkfish, Tuna, Tilapia, Catfish, Seabass, and Others): Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018–2025". According to the report, the global 5 major aquaculture market accounted for USD 62.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 87.6 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period.

Increase in fish production to meet food supply, technological advancements in the field of aquaculture, and rise in demand from livestock and fisheries have boosted the growth of the global 5 major aquaculture market. However, surge in temperature and water pollution hampers the market growth. On the contrary, evolution in inland fishing and use of more sustainable technology in aquaculture is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the near future.

CANADA
Monday, October 14, 2019

There are far more dead fish than initially reported in the salmon die-off on Newfoundland's south coast, and the licences of Northern Harvest Sea Farms have been suspended, Fisheries and Land Resources Minister Gerry Byrne said Friday afternoon.

In late August salmon being raised in open net pens in the Fortune Bay area began dying due to high water temperatures, according to Northern Harvest Sea Farms.

"I am suspending all affected Northern Harvest Seafood Farms licences and issuing a directive that requires the company to continue the cleanup of the sites," Byrne said in an emailed statement.
