The number of fishing boats operating on the Kenyan side of Lake Victoria has increased from 14,365 in 2016 to 16,183 in 2019, a new study has revealed.

The number is the highest recorded since the year 2000, sparking concerns about the sustainability of current fishing activities in the lake.

The increase in the number of fishing boats was recorded across all the counties that border the lake. Also on the rise is the number of fish cages set up in the lake.

Other Media | The Fish Site: The case for grouper aquaculture in the UAE

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

The introduction of grouper aquaculture in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could be “economically sound, environmentally beneficial, and socially enhancing”.

So concludes a newly published study into the potential impacts of culturing orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides). One of the most popular fish species in the UAE, the paper notes, it “has been pushed to the brink of extinction” by overexploitation of wild stocks, making the case for developing an aquaculture sector for the species all the more relevant.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: China's 'most modern' processing ship makes maiden voyage

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

What’s being billed as the most modern fishing and processing vessel in the world has departed from a Chinese port for a “trial voyage” to the Southern Ocean.

A subsidiary of Chinese marine engineering firm Shanghai Chong He Industry Group (also known as Chong He Marine Heavy Industries Co) – which specializes in “niche” marine equipment such as underwater mining and wind power installation facilities – has launched what it claims is the world’s largest purpose-built vessel for fishing Antarctic krill. The ship was designed by Wärtsilä Ship Design Company, which in March was commissioned to design a second –even bigger – krill processing vessel for Chong He Marine.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Salmon prices starting to spike

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

SALMON prices are showing positive signs of hardening as more countries gradually start opening up their economies in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown.

In Norway, which often acts as a marker for neighbouring countries, the country’s statistics office this week reports fresh or chilled salmon was just over NOK 59 per kilo. This represents an increase of 8.3 per cent on the previous week. This is the highest price level since early March. And there are predictions from processors that Scottish spot prices are also expected to go up next week.

And demand appears to be picking up with Norwegian exports rising by 5.6 per cent on the previous week to just over 16,800 tonnes sold.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Cooke boxes clever with packs for the public

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

Canadian salmon farmer Cooke Aquaculture has started direct delivery to the public during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Cooke’s Nova Scotia-based seafood distribution subsidiary AC Covert normally supplies the food service industries, which has been almost completely shut down by the lockdown required to stop the disease spreading, and retailers.

It has switched focus from food service to the public and is offering customers a choice of nine themed seafood boxes which can be bought online for delivery in Atlantic Canada’s three Maritime provinces - Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Sturla leaves The Westman Islands for its new home

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

One of the most successful trawlers in the Westman Islands has moved on to new owners.

Now owned by Grindavík company Thorbjörn, Sturla is the former Vestmannaey, built as one of a pair for Síldarvinnslan subsidiary Bergur-Huginn in 2007, and both have fished very successfully for the company for the last twelve years, until being replaced with new trawlers last year.

Sister vessel Bergey was sold last year to owners in Grundarfjörður in the west of Iceland, and is now Runólfur.

Now Vestmannaey, which was for a few months renamed Smáey, also has new owners and joins the Thorbjörn fleet.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Balfegó asks Pesca to review the distribution of bluefin tuna quota for fattening

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

The company will only see its quota increased by 10 tons, compared to the 587 authorized

Balfegó has asked the General Secretariat of Fisheries for the Map to review the distribution of fattening capacity in aquaculture facilities. The Catalan company, specialized in catching bluefin tuna for fattening, explains that of the 587 tons of increase that can be introduced this year compared to those introduced and justified the previous year (from 5,713 tons to 6,300 tons), only 10 have been assigned to the Balfegó company, dividing the remaining 577 between the other two companies in the sector. He believes that the allocation is "unfair" and that it will cause "irreparable" damage to the company. The campaign begins tomorrow and runs until July 1, so Balfegó urges the government to modify the distribution.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Nofima to meet rising RAS research demands

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

Nofima has announced plans to expand its recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) capacity at its research facilities in both Sunndalsøra and Tromsø.

The research station at Sunndalsøra, which specialises in aquaculture in closed and semi-closed facilities, is fully booked until the summer of 2022. As a result the institute plans to install 20 new tanks with separate recirculating systems during 2021.

In the space of just a few years, the aquaculture industry has made major changes to the way that salmon is produced during the fry stage. Flow-through technology was the standard for smolt production until recently, but it is now primarily RAS that are being used in the aquaculture industry.

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

The top five kaiten-zushi (rotary or conveyor-belt sushi) type chains in Japan saw big declines in April, when restaurants were asked to close by 8 p.m. and were told to set the last order for alcohol at 7 p.m.

By sales and number of outlets, the top five chains are Akindo Sushiro, Kura Corporation, Hama Zushi, Kappa Zushi, and Genki Zushi.

Suita, Osaka-based Sushiro Global Holdings (SGH), which owns Akindo Sushiro – the largest of the five chains – gave a rough estimate of COVID-19’s impact on its business in its investor relations information. Sushiro Japan stores have seen same-store sales compared to last year decline every month since February. February saw a drop of 5 percent, March dropped 25 percent, and April saw the largest impact so far with a 60 percent drop in sales.

OTHER MEDIA | The Cordoba Times: PWS sablefish fishery continues to Dec. 31

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

The sablefish season in Prince William Sound has been extended through Dec. 31 due to health issues related to the COVID-19, Alaska Department of Fish and Game officials announced on Tuesday, May 19.

The fishery opened on April 15, with a guideline harvest level of 167,000 pounds. By regulation the season would conclude on Aug. 31.

Under Alaska’s health mandates 10, 11 and 12, commercial fishing is an essential business and is part of Alaska’s essential services and critical infrastructure, but these mandates also impose protocols to be followed by all harvesters. Commercial fishermen are advised to ensure that all travel and other activities in support of commercial fishing operations follow protocols at covid19.alaska.gov/health-mandates.
