Other Media | SeafoodSource: Turkey’s aquaculture production on the upswing

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Marine aquaculture has been developing rapidly in Turkey over the past decade, according to a new research paper.

A new 430-page report from the Turkish Marine Research Foundation (TUDAV), “Marine Aquaculture in Turkey: Advancements and Management,” offers a thorough examination of the aquaculture sector, looking at lessons learned, how Turkey is embracing a “blue economy” model, and the challenges the country faces in improving the sustainability of its fish and shellfish farming sectors.

Turkey’s aquaculture industry is thriving due to the introduction of new technology, improved management, and production techniques, tighter environmental regulations, and international partnerships helping to open up new markets, according to the report.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: COVID-19 strengthens home meal replacement trend in Japan

Saturday, February 27, 2021

“Nesting behavior” has taken hold in Japan due to COVID-19, resulting in people eating out less.

It’s a trend that is only expected to intensify as Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama, Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo, and Fukuoka prefectures extend their state of emergencies, which were due to lift on 7 February, for another month. While the declarations are in place, the government is asking restaurants and bars to close by 8 p.m.

Instead of eating out, many consumers have been turning to fast food, take-out, and more frequently, to home meal replacement for convenience in Japan, with the latter option known to feature seafood in sushi and tempura formats, among other options.
