UNITED KINGDOM
Friday, July 10, 2020

Salmon farmer Loch Duart and feed manufacturer Cargill have provided £14,400 to fund a new wireless broadband service for households in the Scourie area of Sutherland, where Loch Duart is based.

The money from the companies’ Salmon Pool fund is being given to Scourie Community Development Company (SCDC) for the new service, which will be provided through Highland Wireless.

The Salmon Pool offers funding to charities and projects which benefit local communities in the areas where Loch Duart farms across Sutherland and the Outer Hebrides.

Other Media | Fish Farmer:Major expansion from Icelandic salmon company

ICELAND
Friday, July 10, 2020

ICELAND’S determination to be a major player in salmon farming has taken another big step forward with the announcement that the company Fiskeldi Austfjarða hf, which trades under the name Ice Fish Farm, has received provisional clearance to add another 7,000 tonnes of biomass in the east of the country.

The company already has an operating licence for just over 20,000 tonnes at two locations in the region. This latest development will be centred on a small former fishing community known as Stöðvarfjörður, situated 385 miles east of the capital Reykjavik and which has fewer than 200 inhabitants. Since the loss of conventional fishing most of its young people have left for brighter lights so the investment will almost certainly be welcomed as an important economic boost.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Austral's newbuild heads south

AUSTRALIA
Friday, July 10, 2020

The latest addition to the Austral Fisheries fleet, the new Cape Arkona, is heading around the world for Fremantle in Australia after leaving the Båtgygg yard at Måløy in Norway, with a delivery trip of more than a month ahead.

This unique fishing vessel is designed to be able to switch between three fishing methods in a single trip. While it will fish primarily with longline gear for Patagonian toothfish in the Southern Ocean, Cape Arkona also has capacity to fish with traps and is rigged to trawl for icefish.

The 66.90 metre, 15 metre beam Cape Arkona’s arrangement has been developed between the owners, designers Skipskompetanse and Båtbygg. The hull was built by Marine Projects in Gdansk and brought to Måløy for completion.

Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: With a volume of 6,340 tonnes, organic aquaculture production in Spain maintains its production in 2019

SPAIN
Friday, July 10, 2020

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has released the 2019 Provisions Statistics of organic production in Spain. General data confirms the trend of sustained growth and the consolidation of the organic production sector (agricultural and animal) in Spain, which lead our country to lead the EU.

The big data that Spain manages has little to do with aquaculture, whose organic production in 2019 was 6339.86 tons (which includes fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants). Conventional production in 2018 for all species was 348,395 tons, which shows the meager nature of organic production.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Austevoll Seafood’s conglomerate discount narrows

NORWAY
Thursday, July 09, 2020

Increasing willingness to price pelagic business.

On Monday this week, SalmonBusiness reported the conglomerate discount for Austevoll discount has increased, meaning that the fishing company was worth less than its Lerøy shares.

In fact, Austevoll Seafood’s large scale fisheries activities at the week’s entrance on the Oslo Stock exchange had a negative value of EUR 200 million.

Although the article did not involve any recommendation, it could form the basis for a so-called long/short-trade, where investors would buy Austevoll and sell Lerøy. It would thus be a market neutral trade, with one betting that the gap in pricing between the two shares is going in – regardless of how the stock exchange generally develops.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Kingfish moves across the pond

NETHERLANDS
Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Despite the turbulent economic climate, Netherlands-based The Kingfish Company is expanding - and charting new waters in the USA.

While many producers of high-end seafood have struggled under the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, The Kingfish Company – the new corporate identity for Netherlands-based Kingfish Zeeland, which recently embarked on an ambitious international expansion programme – is emerging from it in fine fettle.

Not only is the yellowtail kingfish producer on schedule and on budget with the construction of its Netherlands RAS expansion (which will double its current capacity), it has also just submitted its first permit notice for the construction of a 6,000-to-8,000-tonne RAS in Maine, USA. The company is on target to hit its long-term 20,000-tonne production goal across its EU and US sites. CEO Ohad Maiman explains to The Fish Site that it’s been an interesting journey.
