Other Media | SalmonBusiness: This has been the weakest start to the year since 2015

NORWAY
Wednesday, January 27, 2021

The average price for the first four weeks of 2021 is EUR 4.2. This is EUR 3.2 lower than the average price in the same period last year.

The salmon market is sloppy. And has been for quite some time. The reason is, as is known, the COVID-19 virus, which has shut down significant parts of the Horeca segment (hotel, restaurant and catering). Thus, the buyer side is dominated by price-conscious supermarket chains.

The market is particularly burdened with big salmon. There is plenty of it due to impeccable growth conditions in the sea in autumn and winter. At the same time, the intercontinental markets, which prefer big fish, have reduced their purchases partly due to lower flight activity.

CHINA
Wednesday, January 27, 2021

A high-end Chinese seafood restaurant chain has opened its 40th outlet in Wuhan, where the COVID-19 virus emerged last year.

The Xu Ji outlet was opened with fanfare and flowers at a commercial building in the Hankou district and is the second in two months opened by the Xu Ji operation, owned by Hunan Xu Ji Catering Management Co., a firm established in 1999.

The company hasn’t its goal, announced in 2018, of opening 50 restaurants by the end of 2020, but the expansion is proof the businessman behind the chain, Xu Guo Hua, has grand ambitions for the franchise. Xu increased his Xu Ji restaurant count from 22 in 2018 by focusing on fast-growing regional cities like Xi’an and Wuhan, where operation costs are lower and competition is less intense than in Beijing or Shanghai.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Iceland on track to break record for farmed fish exports

ICELAND
Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Preliminary figures suggest that Iceland set a new record for the export of aquaculture products last year.
Iceland’s two main farmed fish exports species are salmon and Arctic Char.

The total figure is expected to be around ISK 29bn (£164.3m) a year on year, an increase in nominal terms of 17 per cent.
The figure will be seen as impressive in a year dominated by coronavirus and a pandemic which has shut thousands of restaurants around the world, hugely disrupting salmon sales.

The export figure for December ( which also includes agricultural products), is ISK 4.8bn (£27.4m), an increase of 58 per cent on the final month of 2019 when currency fluctuations are taken into account, but when there was no pandemic.
