IN BRIEF - Breaking the cycle of the illegally sold tuna market

Wednesday, December 04, 2019

Tuna season, which falls between October and mid-January, and picks up again between April and May, sees the local market being bombarded with tuna at a giveaway price. Despite the illegal trade of recreationally caught fish, recreational catches will sell between R25/kg to R40/kg per fish, presenting itself as a favourable option to local restaurateurs, some of whom become reluctant to pay between R75/kg to R95/kg for quality, legally caught tuna.

“Unfortunately some restaurants choose the illegal route rather than supporting those that go above and beyond to operate within the law and produce a high end product for the consumer,” explains Kurt Hill, operations director at Cape Fish located in Paarden Eiland.

Identified as a key contributor to the problem are the local, annual tuna competitions, where recreational anglers and vessel owners enjoy large catches of tuna – the surplus which is sold into the market at a reduced price to make a profit, undercutting commercial fisheries.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Processors disagree on response to trout market’s approaching collapse

Wednesday, August 05, 2020

Trout farmer and processor Roger Hofseth does not see the need for emergency measures for trout.

On Monday, it was announced that the Norwegian seafood association Sjømatbedriftene, by chief executive Robert Eriksson, are asking the Minister of Fisheries for help against what is feared to be a market collapse for trout. In a letter to Minister of Fisheries Emil Ingebrigtsen, Eriksson proposed a 20 per-cent increase in the maximum allowed biomass (MAB).

“I simply fear that the market balance will be destroyed if nothing is done,” Eriksson told SalmonBusiness.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Shrimp giants urged to take action over increased disease risks

Wednesday, August 05, 2020

The governments of the five largest shrimp producing nations have been urged to take increased and immediate action to address the continued outbreak and emergence of new diseases in shrimp farms.

More than 25 major retailers and seafood companies and the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) have signed the letter, which was sent to the governments of China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.

“Governments need to take action now to stop disease outbreaks in shrimp farms,” said Anton Immink, aquaculture director at SFP. “Disease disrupts the reliability of supply chains, threatens seafood sustainability and jobs, and continually costs the industry billions of dollars each year.”
