Other Media | The Fish Site: Crawfish aquaculture: a season in review

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

In the first installment of a new monthly column for The Fish Site, Professor Greg Lutz looks at how Louisiana’s crawfish farmers are faring in an extraordinary year for the sector.

This time of year, farmed crawfish season is winding down and mature animals that weren’t harvested before season’s end are already down in their burrows – hovering above tiny pools of water in sealed chambers and dreaming of eventual re-emergence in the fall, when producers re-flood their ponds to kick off the next season. For the crawfish, it’s a pretty straightforward, uncomplicated plan. One that Mother Nature has perfected over the past 200 million years.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Denmark fears further reductions in cod fishing that will make this sector unfeasible

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Large reductions in quotas for cod and other key species present major challenges for the Danish fishing industry next year, according to the president of the Danish Fishermen's Association, Svend-Erik Andersen. The fishermen's representative claims that ‘with these Danish fishing quotas, there is a possibility of a financial storm in the coming year. Danish fisheries will be strongly affected financially with quota reductions, especially for cod in all waters, "said Svend-Erik Andersen, President of the Danish Fishermen's Association.

The expectation is that the Danish fishing industry will be under financial pressure next year, with quota reductions in cod in the North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat and in the Baltic Sea, where heavy losses in turnover are forecast for the industry every quarter.

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: If we do not get permission to operate a salmon farm on an oil rig in Norwegian sea, we need to look for other waters

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Viewpoint Seafarm is considering buying the “Polar Pioneer” oil rig, although development licences are not in place.

The Viewpoint Seafarm is a project that wants to reuses oil rigs as a base for large scale ocean-based salmon farming. And it wants to to buy Transocean’s oil rig “Polar Pioneer”, which has long been in circulation in Western Norway.

The redevelopment is expected to cost around EUR 64 million, and the company believes the project can provide 663 man-years during the construction period.

In the summer of 2018, Viewpoint Seafarm was rejected by the Directorate of Fisheries on applications for 20 development licences. The company appealed the decision, but the directorate upheld it and passed it on to the Ministry of Industry and Fisheries for a final decision.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Recognition for novel sustainable seafood packaging

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

The unique design of a corrugated cardboard composition pack for the transportation of fresh fish and shellfish has added registered status to its list of accolades.

Developed for Scottish Shellfish by the specialist transit packaging team at Cepac, the novel ‘Chiller Pack’ design was formally registered with the Intellectual Property Office last month.

The design allows for dry transportation of fish and shellfish, to avoid the fresh produce sitting in water, which can compromise freshness. Traditionally, fresh seafood is transported in expanded polystyrene (EPS) boxes.
