IN BRIEF - Viral Aquaculture Disease Treatment Market to Record an Exponential CAGR by 2025
Monday, September 16, 2019
Aquatic animal diseases are the most significant constraints to development and management of aquaculture. Aquatic animal diseases included non-infectious and infectious disease. An aquatic animal is highly affected by infectious diseases such as bacterial, viral, fungi and parasites. Viral aquaculture diseases are difficult to diagnose and control with the medication. No specific treatment is available for viral aquaculture diseases. Viral aquaculture diseases included infectious hematopoietic necrosis (IHN), viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS), channel catfish virus disease (CCVD), and infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN). The aquaculture industry is a fast-growing industry but it’s facing major challenges such as prevention and treatment of diseases among shrimp and aquaculture species.
Advancement in the field of aquaculture therapeutics favors the growth of the viral aquaculture disease treatment market. Growing demand for the effective drug for the viral aquaculture disease treatment expected to boost up the growth of the market. Increasing incidence of viral infectious diseases among aquaculture species propels the demand for the viral aquaculture disease treatment therapeutics. Globally increasing consumption of fishes boosts up the growth of the viral aquaculture disease treatment therapeutics. Growing research and development in the field of veterinary medicines and increasing demand for aquaculture expected to favor the growth of the viral aquaculture disease treatment market. Increasing production of aquaculture species and growing government programs for animal health expected to propel the growth of the viral aquaculture disease treatment market. Moreover, strict regulation regarding the approval of new drug and vaccine expected to restrain the growth of the viral aquaculture disease treatment market. Unavailability of effective treatment option expected to hamper the growth of global viral aquaculture disease treatment market.
The trout produced by Truite Service, fed with a Skretting diet that incorporates algae oil developed by Veramaris, has reached retail stores in France this week “favoring and taking the availability of sustainable fishery products to a new level,” Skretting emphasizes. .
This innovative trout diet, recalls the Nutreco aquafeed company, is the last of the different collaborations between the two companies after the launching of the market, by Supermarché Match, and for French consumers, caused a sensation in 2019, of salmon raised with a similar diet.
As Skrettting points out, "in addition to meeting the expectations of consumers looking for food produced in a more sustainable way, it has been found that this new approach to aquaculture diets is also responsible for generating higher sales." In fact, they add, Supermarché Match has recently reported a 12% growth in its salmon category after the launch of Norwegian salmon produced by Norwegian Lingalaks and fed with the Skretting diet with Veramaris seaweed oil.

SOME 87 per cent of Scotland’s salmon farms have been rated environmentally ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ by regulators, new statistics show.
Farmers achieved their best ever environmental performance in 2018, according to figures collected for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency’s (SEPA’s) Compliance Assessment Scheme (CAS).
The scheme is used by SEPA to monitor performance across a range of industries and sectors. The compliance figures for all sectors are being published today.
The results have been welcomed by the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) as ‘demonstrating the sector’s commitment to robust environmental standards’.
SEPA assessed the performance of 296 farms in 2018, which showed a 38 per cent increase in the number of farms achieving an ‘excellent’ rating (183 farms) and a 10 per cent increase in the number of farms achieving ‘good’ (74) compared to 2017.

ZEEBRUGGE - A tugboat went before, but last week the Z 18 was the first fishing ship in the new dry dock at Gardec. Versluys-Couwyzer's boxer has been at Gardec for three weeks, for two new generator sets, winch repairs and stainless steel railings. The new bin coolers were placed in the dock and the ship was 'washed'. Last Tuesday the job was done and the cutter could go fishing again.
With the new dock, Gardec, as the largest shipyard on the Belgian coast, has made an important investment and made a major increase in efficiency. The dock was built on a Damen shipyard in Magalia, Romania, and arrived in Zeebrugge early this year after a long trail. ,, We wanted a well-stocked dock with which you can work well. We can now dock quickly. Four large pumps are installed. This takes 35 minutes to get the dock down and 35 minutes to get it up, "says Gardec technical manager Dieter D'hoedt.
With 6.25 meters, draft is no longer a problem. "That used to be just fine." In addition, the collection of waste water and working with taps is now much better organized. Design and engineering for the 80 by 30 measuring dock, with 24 meters inside the towers, were done in-house.

Russian seafood products – primarily salmon roe – compete in the U.S. at much lower prices.
In a white paper from the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) – the US state’s official seafood marketing arm – writes that US/Russia exports & imports are a one-way street that only benefits the former Soviet state.
Since 2014, there has been a Russian embargo on food products from the U.S. and other western nations bans all Alaska seafood products (except canned salmon, which is not exported to Russia in large volumes).
Russia represented a roughly USD 60 million market for Alaska seafood prior to the embargo, it wrote. However, Russia continues to export seafood to the U.S. almost entirely duty-free.
Prior to the embargo, Russia was the second most important export market for Alaska salmon roe after Japan. In 2013, without taking into account transshipments, the two markets took roughly 64% of all Alaska salmon roe exports, leaving no single comparable market for Alaska salmon roe other than Japan when the Russia market closed.
Salmon roe, primarily pink, accounted for 76.4 per cent of this export value in 2013, and the majority of export value in previous years as well.
The project is developed as an antibacterial treatment specially formulated against P. salmonis bacteria.
ne of the great challenges facing the salmon industry is associated with the excessive use of antibiotics, where about US $ 53 million per year is allocated to these agents; which not only impacts its production costs, but also its image and environmental damage, preventing entry into more demanding markets.
The main cause of the use of antibiotics is the treatment of the pathology produced by the bacterium Piscirickettsia salmonis - it generates costs close to US $ 500 million - since it produces about 6% of the mortality of salmon farming and to which about 90 is destined % of antibiotics administered.
Because the only effective treatment against this pathology is given by antibiotics, uncontrolled use has been promoted; In addition, there are vaccines to date, but these have not been effective enough to combat this pathogen.
The Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation and the Scottish Seafood Association, which represents the processing sector, today made a joint call for urgent discussions with UK government ministers about the impact of Westminster’s post-Brexit immigration plans.
Freedom of movement between the UK and EU ends on December 31, and ministers say it should be replaced with a points-based system aimed at limiting entry to skilled workers earning at least £25,600 a year.
The SSPO and SSA highlighted the dependence of the processing sector on overseas labour and stressed the importance of ensuring that businesses were able to be fully staffed to deal with the growth in seafood volumes from January 2021.
Vital to viability
SSA chief executive Jimmy Buchan said: “These immigration plans have the potential to severely restrict the economic boost that will flow from the UK’s exit from the Common Fisheries Policy.
“At the point of expansion, we need ministers to allow scope for recruitment of skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labour as they are all vital to the viability of the sector.
“We will take our case to the UK government in the coming days and weeks.”

Price comparison Norway vs. Iceland to a few key markets.
Whats going on here?
When comparing trade prices for Icelandic and Norwegian salmon to a few key markets, in this case the Netherlands, Denmark and the United Kingdom, we see an interesting contrast. While Norwegian prices to these three markets follow an almost identical pattern, price of Icelandic salmon is almost all over the place. Trade prices for Norwegian salmon had a smooth downward trend from April to September and grew again for the remainder of the year. Average price of fresh-whole salmon to the Netherlands was 7,12 EUR/kg in April, 5,05 EUR/kg in September and 6,86 EUR/kg in December. An almost identical pattern was recorded in Denmark and the UK, although at slightly lower prices. The relatively less developed Icelandic salmon trade recorded.....
In December 2019, prices of Norwegian fresh-whole salmon exports increased considerably from the previous month. There was a 18% increase recorded to the Netherlands....(to continue reading sign up on seadatacenter.com - and get access to the latest seafood market trends and our Market Watch including valuable insights on the latest market trends)

Founded in 2016, land-based salmon farmer Pure Salmon may be relatively new to the aquaculture sector. But its founders are aiming to become the leaders in global salmon aquaculture in due time.
Pure Salmon is owned by private equity funds managed by Singapore-based 8F Asset Management, a private equity manager focused on impact investing. Pure Salmon has invested in a huge expansion of land-based salmon farming around the world, and has plans to launch operations across the globe with projects planned in Japan, France, North America, China, Southeast Asia, and Africa.
Right now, the company sells fish of four kilograms and larger to Poland’s domestic market, including to local retail chains, foodservice outlets, and luxury restaurants. Currently, its only production comes from its recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) facility near Plon´sk, Poland, which now produces 450 tons of salmon annually. That facility serves as proof-of-concept and has paved the way for expansion globally, Martin Fothergill, a co-founder and partner of 8F Asset Management, told SeafoodSource.

Norwegian salmon diet produced by Skretting which includes omega-3 EPA + DHA algal oil produced by Veramaris has placed Supermaché in the spotlight in Franche. The salmon has boosted sales and Supermarché Match say its turnover increased by 12.4% in the salmon family alone.
At Supermarché Match, this represents 10% of the turnover of the season. (95% of which is represented by Norwegian salmon) The food developed by Skretting contains 30% more omega-3 EPA and DHA than standard food.
“Building on the success of the partnership with Veramaris on salmon, we wanted to go further by offering trout fed by the same process. This diet has a real advantage both on the environment (by limiting fishing) and on consumers, by providing them with the omega-3 necessary for their health. These two dimensions are very important for Supermarché Match as part of its GOOD FOOD business project, which aims to make our brand the preferred retailer of healthy and tasty food for all, ” says Nicolas Baroux, director of the Tide Sector for Supermarché Match in a press release, stating that the success is not only caused by the sales of salmon, but also trout.
