Other Media | SeafoodSource: New report explores the future of alternative aquafeed ingredients

Monday, April 06, 2020

A new report from Lux Research explores the future of alternative aquafeed ingredients, evaluating insect protein, single-cell protein, and algae protein as potential replacement options in fishmeal.

The FAO estimated in 2018 that aquaculture production would reach 201 million metric tons (MT) by 2030, in line with a 10 percent annual increase in demand for fish protein. However, according to IFFO, global annual fishmeal production from marine organisms – including fish, krill, shellfish, and algae – has remained at 5 million MT in recent years, with one third of the world’s fishmeal production coming courtesy of by-products from wild-capture fisheries and aquaculture.

That number will have to significantly increase in order for the aquaculture sector to remedy future supply and demand gaps, Lux Research posited. The firm predicted in its latest report – which identified 20 producers of algae, 28 insect feed companies, and 16 producers of single-cell protein – that over the next 30 years, 15 million MT of new protein will be needed for aquaculture to meet the shortfall between supply and demand.

IN BRIEF - A Nova Scotia fisherman made a one in a million catch

Friday, May 29, 2020

As a reporter living near the ocean in Nova Scotia, I get to see some incredible marine life as when people make discoveries along the coastline. I've seen my share of whales, came within an arm's length of a great white shark, but never had I seen an albino lobster.

Until now.

Lobster fisherman AJ Francis tells me "It was the last trap on the trawl and I saw something white," from aboard his boat docked at the Pictou Landing wharf.

The start of lobster season had to be delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions, but for Francis, it certainly started out with a bang.

Albino lobsters are considered to be 1 in 100 million, the rarest of the rare.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Mediterranean tuna prices expected to drop this year

Friday, May 29, 2020

As the tuna season in the Mediterranean opens, this year’s fishery should look positive as the 4781 tonne quotas for the French purse seine fleet have close to pre-recovery period levels of 4677 tonnes back in 2007.

Prices for red tuna (bluefin) are expected to be lower this year, as fishing is hit by the uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘Prices were close to €10 per kilo in 2019, with no significant difference prices between line-caught and seine-caught fish.’

According to PO Sathoan, which represents trawlers, small scale vessels and around half of the French Mediterranean tuna fleet, the recovery of the tuna fishery hasn’t happened by accident, but is the result of efforts by all sectors of the industry in adhering to ICCAT scientists’ advice.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: China’s domestic salmon sector facing pressure from bad economy, Norwegian imports

Friday, May 29, 2020

China’s economy is weakening, and that could spell the end of the country’s fledgling marine salmon sector.

In April, the CKGSB Business Conditions Index (BCI) registered a score of 42.2, up less than one percentage point from March (41.3), but well below the 50-point mark, which suggests a positive reading. The latest monthly reading of the index, compiled by the respected Beijing business school of the same name, comes with a warning for the future.

“From this, we can tell that the economy is still extremely weak,” the BCI report said. “Without strong government policy intervention, economic growth is unlikely to be very positive going forward. Indeed, if by the end of the year, GDP growth is above zero, this will be considered a decent result.”

Other Media | SeafoodSource: COVID-19 accelerating negative trends for pangasius sector

Friday, May 29, 2020

The coronavirus has delivered a large blow to Vietnam’s pangasius sector, which was already hurting before the pandemic.

Vietnam has not recorded any COVID-19 deaths through the crisis, and the entire country has only seen around 300 cases of the disease due to the extensive preventative measures it took beginning in January. But while most of social and economic activities in Vietnam have been brought back to a “new normal” since late April, disruptions in foreign markets, tangled supply chains, and suppressed demand have hurt its seafood export sector, upon which the country’s pangasius traders depend heavily.
