Other Media | Alimarket: Alimentaria, postponed until 2021

SPAIN
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

As has happened with other competitions around the world, the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 has ended up delaying the celebration of Alimentaria while waiting for a normality that allows this type of event to be held. In this case, Fira de Barcelona has chosen to delay 2021 (from May 17 to 20), in a decision "agreed with the sector", according to a statement. In recent weeks, companies and associations have conveyed to organizers the convenience of delaying the fair to next year, while other companies hastened the deadline before making a decision that they did not see clearly.

The president of Alimentaria, Josep Lluís Bonet, stressed that “the decision supports the majority will of the productive and associative fabric of the sector, betting on holding the event in a more favorable environment and without so many limitations on international mobility.

CANADA
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Cermaq Canada is to trial a semi-closed containment system at its British Columbia operations, the first such technology to be deployed outside of Norway.

The company, which is owned by Mitsubishi, has tested the system in Norway, successfully growing fish up to 1kg.

Components for the new style cage, designed and built by FiiZK in Norway, arrived in Canada earlier this month, and assembly is now underway.

Once the structure is complete, it will be taken by barge to Cermaq’s Millar Channel farm site in Clayoquot Sound, off Vancouver Island. It could be a companion to existing systems and farming techniques, said Cermaq.

Othe Media | The Fish Site: £12 million invested in RAS feed production

DENMARK
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

A new line dedicated to RAS and fry aquaculture feed production has been opened by BioMar in Denmark.

The new line is the result of a DKK 100 million (£12 million) investment that has enabled BioMar to increase the annual capacity of its Danish facility by 25 percent.

Situated in Jutland, it is close to many of the world’s leading RAS companies, allowing BioMar to focus on feeds for land-based farming.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Assessors must reconsider parts of potential bluefin MSC certification

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, June 29, 2020

An independent adjudicator, analyzing formal objections to the potential Marine Stewardship Council certification of the Usufuku Honten East Atlantic bluefin tuna fishery, has upheld one of the four objections presented.

The objections were presented by the World Wildlife Fund and The Pew Charitable Trusts in January, after the assessment body, Control Union Pesca Ltd., recommended that the fishery be certified in December 2019. Of the four objections, the independent adjudicator upheld objections to the evidence used to conclude how long bluefin tuna take to grow and reproduce, according to a release from MSC.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Where’s the return on the EU’s aquaculture investment?

EUROPEAN UNION
Monday, June 29, 2020

The latest statistical analysis shows that the EU’s attempts to step up and revive aquaculture production have proved to be costly, and have had very limited results. We investigate why this might be the case.

Recently we took an in-depth look at the lack of uptake of tuna farming technology in the Mediterranean region, and what we found inspired us to investigate whether there is a commonality between the depressing status of closed-cycle tuna farming in Europe and the status of fish farming in the European Union (EU) in general.
