Other Media | WorldFishing: Bycatch donations aid food security

UNITED STATES
Thursday, November 12, 2020

A new study of a bycatch donation programme in Alaska highlights its value in cutting waste, while addressing food security and social value.

In 1996, NOAA Fisheries and the North Pacific Fishery Management Council established the ‘Prohibited Species Donation Program’ to make it possible for fishermen to donate some bycatch to hunger relief organisations. Jordan Watson, NOAA Fisheries biologist at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center and author of the study suggests that the programme could serve as a model to help mitigate waste around the world.

Taking a break from feeding, fixing nets and walkways, 43-year-old Gabriel Otieno Omogo surveys the cages he is responsible for as the technical maintenance supervisor of African Blue, an established commercial tilapia producer on the shores of Lake Victoria.

Locally born and raised, he is part of a growing team, working on 22 production cages, which has an ambition to produce 200 tonnes of tilapia this year – most of which is sold whole, gutted and chilled in Kisumu city, two hours away.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Lerøy Seafood Group sees revenue, profits fall for Q3

NORWAY
Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Lerøy Seafood Group, co-owners of Scottish Sea Farms, today posted a fall in third quarter revenue of NOK 329 million (£27.5 million).

Salmon was not the main culprit, however. The company said the most significant factor behind the lower earnings was pressure on the whitefish market resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, and the change in catch composition compared with Q3 2019.

Lerøy is not only one of Norway’s largest salmon farmers, it also operates a powerful trawler fleet whose main catch is cod, haddock and saithe, along with a major seafood processing business.
