Other Media | The Fish Site: Singapore eyes southern aquaculture expansion

SINGAPORE
Monday, April 06, 2020

The government of Singapore is looking into the possibility of farming more fish in the country’s southern waters as it aims to become more self-sufficient in food production.

The government set out a strategy to become less reliant on food imports last year – an initiative that has been given further impetus by the disruptions to global supply chains that are currently being caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Currently, 108 of the republic’s 110 offshore fish farms are located in the Johor straight, to the north of the country, and these produced around 4,700 tonnes of fish - amounting to 10 per cent of country’s total consumption – in 2019.

However, as parts of this area are thought to be approaching their carrying capacity, the government is now looking elsewhere.

The Straights Times reports that a spokesman for the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said last week that: "SFA has conducted a broad scan of the southern waters for potential aquaculture sites and is targeting for sustainable farming systems to be adopted at those sites. Various spatial, production and environmental constraints were taken into consideration to determine potential sites."

Other Media | Global Aquaculture: India’s shrimp industry adapts to COVID-19 restrictions

INDIA
Tuesday, June 02, 2020

India’s shrimp aquaculture industry is one of its growing, protein-producing industries which earns important foreign exchange.

In this article, we analyze existing trends in the various segments of the shrimp production supply chain in India, including hatcheries, shrimp farms, feed production and exports. We also propose some strategies to help support industry resiliency and sustainability.

India has an extensive coastline of 8,118 km across nine states and four union territories. The country’s shrimp aquaculture industry is one of its growing, protein-producing sectors which earns India important foreign exchange. Rising demand for animal protein, safe for human consumption, is on the rise due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which has not only caused a huge transition in the global economy but also affected the shopping behavior of many people around the world.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Northern Australia targets five-fold aquaculture increase

AUSTRALIA
Tuesday, June 02, 2020

Northern Australian aquaculture is set to increase its production five-fold and exceed $1.34 billion (US$886 million) in value within the next decade.

So suggests a new report by the Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA), which also found the growth of the industry would create 2,340 direct new jobs by 2030 - if the industry worked together to overcome identified challenges and capitalise on the opportunities outlined in the study.

Jed Matz, CEO of CRCNA, said the research, led by James Cook University (JCU), has for the first time clearly articulated a future vision for the whole Northern Australian aquaculture industry.

NORWAY
Tuesday, June 02, 2020

The volume of whole fresh salmon exported by Norway continued to slide last week as the preference for prepacked fillets among the country’s main markets gathered more momentum. In kroner terms, however, the price of whole salmon is now higher than a year ago, according to the latest trade update from the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC).

In week 22, there was an 11 percent decrease in the overseas sales of whole fresh salmon compared to a year previously, while exports of fresh and frozen salmon fillets increased by 17 percent and 54 percent, respectively. Overall, 21,776 metric tons (MT) of salmon was exported over the seven-day period, representing a decrease of 6 percent year-on-year.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Spanish seafood sector looks forward to recovery – Fears deep recession

SPAIN
Monday, June 01, 2020

The fishing sector has yet to see the hoped-for recovery of seafood sales and prices as the HoReCa sector is gradually re-opened. Sales are estimated to have dropped by 10% as demand remains low for restaurant species including shellfish, sea bream and turbot, while prices have remained low for hake, megrim and monkfish.

Spanish fishing vessel operators’ organisation CEPESCA, retailers’ body FEDEPESCA and fishermen’s guilds federation FNCP are encouraging consumers to prioritise buying legal, sustainable and healthy fish from Spanish vessels to fill the gap while the restaurant and hotel trade has yet to recover.

These organisations all recognise that the economic crisis and the measures taken to slow the spread of Covid-19 could have serious repercussions for the industry as a whole in future.

SPAIN
Friday, May 29, 2020

The national food distribution has passed the examination it has undergone with the arrival of the health crisis caused by Covid-19. But how is the future presented? Precisely this unknown has been the basis of the virtual round table organized today, May 27, by Ainia, under the slogan 'The Great Distribution, working towards the future, companies facing the challenge of Covid-19' and which has had the participation of Mercadona's quality director, Luis Pla; the director of the consumer-client department of Consum, Manuel García, and the Ikea Food Country manager, Carlos Cocheteux.

The first big conclusion is the importance of continuing to bet on innovation to get out of this situation as quickly as possible, given that "Covid is going to be a catalyst for innovation, a lever" and "you have to go forward with innovation , you can't get out of a crisis any other way ", in the words of Carlos Cocheteux.
