Other Media | The Fish Site: Grieg set sell all its Scottish salmon farms

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Grieg Seafood has announced plans to offload its salmon farms in Scotland “when the timing is right”.

The company’s Q3 report revealed that: “Medium to long-term, our focus will be in the areas with the best potential for sustainable growth during the post Covid-19 recovery period, which is our Norwegian and Canadian regions. As such, we have initiated an evaluation of strategic alternatives for our Shetland region. We aim for a sale when the timing is right.”

The announcement follows a disastrous quarter for the multinational’s Scottish operations – with the premature harvest of fish required at several sites off Skye, following an outbreak of jellyfish, leading to losses amounting to NOK 150 million for the quarter.

Other Media | FiskerForum: New Rules For 2021 Could Cripple English Seafood Exports

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

A group of the English fishing industry’s big names have written to Secretary of State for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs George Eustice to set out serious concerns over MMO proposals for documenting seafood exports. They state that proposals for validating catch certificates for fish to be exported could affect the viability of auctions, merchants and processors.

‘It could be the final straw for many businesses which are still facing extremely tough times because of the pandemic. This affects all sectors and just about all types and sizes of vessel,’ they state.

The forum seeks specific financing solutions for blue economy projects in sectors linked to the sea

The international party organized by the Portuguese association Fórum Océano and the Galician Centro Tecnológico do Mar (Cetmar) to promote projects and businesses in two different sectors of the economy of the sea was going to be held this year for the first time in Vigo. But the pandemic has forced the olive city to change due to the ins and outs of the Internet. And it was there, on the Web, where the nearly 600 participants of the Business2Sea forum have gathered, which started yesterday, coinciding with the National Day of the Sea on the Portuguese calendar, and which in three conferences and 11 workshops in five days aims to promote the so-called blue economy and seek specific financing solutions for sectors linked to the sea.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Chilean Government denies that the Chinese fleet sailing the Pacific has reached the country's coast

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

The national director of the National Fisheries Service of Chile (Sernapesca), Alicia Gallardo Lagno, from the Central Satellite Monitoring Service, delivered last Friday her sixth report on the situation of the Chinese fishing fleet that has moved through the Pacific Ocean , approaching the coasts of several South American countries.

The deputy director of Fisheries, Fernando Naranjo, pointed out that, as was the case the previous week, some 340 vessels remain off the Peruvian coast, from Arequipa to the north. Only two of them are closer to Chile, but they are still 300 miles from the country's exclusive economic zone. Just over a dozen vessels sailed west, back to their home ports.

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

The Tokyo Sustainable Seafood Symposium 2020 took place earlier this month in an online format, replacing the in-person event which had drawn an increasing amount of attention and attendance for in the past few years for shining a light on issues of marine sustainability in seafood-loving Japan.

This year’s event schedule was expanded from two to six days, with presentations covering a dozen topics. Last year, 900 people attended the live event, but the online format of this year’s event gave co-organizers Naoki Asami, the managing director of Nikkei BP, and Seafood Legacy Founder and CEO Wakao Hanaoka hope that they would double attendance in 2020.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Chile budgets for enhanced salmon inspection regime

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Chile’s government aquaculture agency, Sernapesca, has been given an increased budget of almost 33.2 billion pesos (£32.8 million) for 2021, enabling it to enhance salmon farm inspections.

In addition to creating a centre for remote monitoring of fish farming sites, Sernapesca hopes to have more of its own vessels to monitor aquaculture in the Magallanes region.

“We feel very fortunate with the budget approved by Dipres (Chilean government budget office), as it allows us to maintain our operation and focus on issues of greater impact for sustainability,”

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Norcod says its cod harvest is on track

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Norcod, Norway’s largest cod farmer, has reported a third quarter operating profit in its first production cycle, but a small pre-tax loss.
The company farms cod in its natural habitat off the coast of central Norway and has so far produced 1.7 million fish, spread over two locations. For Q3 its operating profit was NOK 1.1 million although after financial expenses, earnings after tax showed a loss of NOK 5.4 million.
After several rounds of fundraising the group’s equity went up by NOK 14.1 million between the end of 2019 and the close of Q3 this year. Its stock commenced trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange’s Merkur market in October.

Other Media | FiskerForum: New Legislation Framework For UK Fisheries

Monday, November 16, 2020

The Fisheries Bill, the first piece of primary legislation in the UK focusing on fisheries, has crossed the final hurdle of its long journey that has spanned one general election and two government administrations. Soon the Bill will be signed by the Queen, and it will become the Fisheries Act 2000.

It hasn’t been an easy process as the Bill has gone through various stages of scrutiny in the House of Commons and the House of Lords. At the final stage the Lords accepted the amendments MPs had made to the Bill and added no further amendments.

The NFFO, representing much of the English fishing sector, appears satisfied with the Bill as is has been passed and sees it as being close to the original proposals the government has put forward.
