Tuesday, April 07, 2020

The Spanish longline fleet has come together to carry out a joint diagnosis of the impact that the COVID19 crisis is going to have on its activity and, at the same time, establish the mechanisms it would need to face the coming uncertainty.

Prepared by Opromar, Orpagu, OPP Lugo, OPPC3 (Arvi) and the trading companies grouped in Anecteam, the report focuses on the economic difficulties posed by the closure of the Italian market for this segment of the fleet, the destination of much of its export, as well as the blocking of the Horeca channel. The document has been sent to both the General Secretariat of Fisheries and the Consellería do Mar.

One of the key data provided by the fleet is the volume of merchandise it has unplaced. At the moment, the fleet is pending to commercialize a total of 11 687 tons of the three main species: blue shark (5277 tons); sword (6049 tons) and shortfin mako (360 tons), whose price is being affected by the market situation.

In the first two months of the year, the value of the blue shark has fallen 20%; and 7% in the case of sword. The decrease of these two species in the month of March was much more pronounced, reaching 38 in the case of blue shark and 19% in the sword. As a result, in the first quarter of the year, the average price of blue shark fell 29%, 13% in the case of sword.

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 | 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.”
