Other Media | Fish Farmer: Next step for ‘submarine’ fish farm project

Monday, February 15, 2021

Aquaculture company Eidsfjord Sjøfarm AS has been given a partial go ahead to develop a 900-foot long “submarine-like” offshore fish farm.

The project had earlier been rejected by the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries, but the Ministry of Trade and Industry has overruled that decision, saying it believes that the concept now meets the requirement for significant innovation.
Known as the Eidsfjord Giant, the project will be sent back to the Directorate for further discussions over its eventual development.

The economic and human shocks of the coronavirus pandemic could be a crucial window of opportunity for the global seafood sector.

A newly published Worldfish research paper has analysed the responses of the global seafood sector to the first months of the coronavirus crisis. The research, which focuses on how food systems can build resilience in the face of unforeseen challenges, compares the coronavirus responses of the seafood industry across low- and high-income countries.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Norway And EU In Conflict Over Svalbard Quotas

Monday, February 15, 2021

Norway has branded as unacceptable the EU’s decision to allocate a quota of its own in the Svalbard zone, claiming that this move is contrary to Norway’s sovereign rights under the law of the sea.

‘Norway protests against the EU’s unilateral quota allocation for the fisheries protection zone off Svalbard. This is completely unacceptable behaviour by the EU. Norway has the exclusive right to regulate fishing in the fisheries protection zone off Svalbard, and only Norway can allocate EU fishing quotas in the area,’ said Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen following a meeting with EU Environment, Maritime and Fisheries Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevicius.

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Pollock and crab seasons starting up in Alaska

Saturday, February 13, 2021

Freezing February weather in the U.S. state of Alaska hasn’t kept fishermen off fishing grounds from Southeast to Norton Sound.

In the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska, boats are pulling in pollock, cod, flounder, and other groundfish.

More than three billion pounds of pollock will come out of the Bering Sea this year, and another 250 million pounds from the Gulf of Alaska. And Prince William Sound also has a winter pollock fishery that will produce nearly five million pounds of fish.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Seafood Disruption Scheme draws fire

Thursday, February 11, 2021

The UK government’s compensation for seafood businesses affected by the twin challenges of Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic opened for applications this week, amid criticisms that it excludes many of those worst affected.

The UK-wide Seafood Disruption Support Scheme will provide up to £23m in financial assistance to businesses that suffered a financial loss because of delays related to the export of fresh or live fish and shellfish to the EU during January 2021. The fund will be paid retrospectively to cover losses incurred between 1-31 January 2021.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Norway sets preliminary sandeel advice at 110000 tonnes for 2021

Thursday, February 11, 2021

Three strong year classes plus signs of another good year mean that Norwegian Marine Research Institute recommends a historically high preliminary quota for sandeel in 2021.

Last summer, the sandeel quota was a record 250,000 tonnes. That was after the researchers were able to increase their quota council twice from 70,000 to 110,000 to 250,000 tonnes.

The researchers highlighted several years with solid year classes combined with relatively modest hosting which is the reason why that for the high preliminary quota. Also, 2020 was also a year with a lot of zooplankton in the sea which feeds sandeels.

Over three calls, 50 stakeholders from policy, business, science and finance discussed how the sustainable development of the seafood sector can be accelerated.
