Other Media | SeafoodSource: With 2024 fishing quota negotiations underway, Irish fishing industry takes on Iceland

Tuesday, November 28, 2023

Irish Fish Producers Organization CEO Aodh O’Donnell has accused Iceland of deliberately pursuing a policy of overfishing over the past decade while it fixes a unilateral mackerel quota almost three times greater than that of Ireland.

Iceland is “plundering” mackerel stocks for use in fishmeal production as part of its effort to establish claims on stocks through self-allocated quotas, according to O’Donnell, who said 120,000 metric tons of mackerel was landed by Icelandic vessels in Norwegian ports for fishmeal production in the last quarter alone.

The Cantabrian fleet hopes to complete a good anchovy coastal campaign, the official start of which is March 1. The good recruitments in recent years have made possible the highest quota in 18 years, with a total of 31,614 tons for Spain, 1,432 more than in 2023, according to the note published this Thursday in the Official State Gazette.

IN BRIEF - NFI 2023’s New Member Expansion Continues in 2024

Thursday, February 29, 2024

Reston, VA – At a time when there are great challenges within the sector, companies are uniting under the National Fisheries Institute’s umbrella to find collective solutions. In 2023, NFI broke its record for new members in a single year, welcoming 22 companies in 12 months. In just the first two months of 2024, the nation’s largest seafood association has already broken that record welcoming 23 new members.  

“We’re hearing from so many companies that now is an important time to engage and help chart the trajectory of the seafood industry,” said NFI President and CEO Lisa Wallenda Picard. “NFI members agree that seafood is the solution for feeding future generations.” 

NFI continues to diversify its membership with the addition of innovative upstart companies and traditional industry powerhouses.  

“NFI is in the midst of its own strategic planning that will help design its course for the next 3 to 5 years, and likely beyond,” said NFI Chair Santiago Alvarez, CEO of Alpha Gamma Group. “Shaping seafood’s narrative, growing support for advocacy efforts, and connecting the industry is at the heart of that effort. And as we’ve seen, the seafood community understands that now is an ideal time to be a part of NFI.” 

NFI will hold its annual Leadership Summit, September 23-26 at the Intercontinental Wharf, Washington, D.C. 

IN BRIEF - Seafarms 'very active' raising funds amid appeal over court ordered liquidation of prawn project

Thursday, February 29, 2024

Last week a court overturned a Deed of Company Arrangement (DOCA) for prawn producer Seafarms (ASX: SFG) to salvage a planned mega-project spanning northern NT and WA, but a stay order allows the Darwin-headquartered company to appeal by 22 March.

The Federal Court determined that the DOCA would allow Seafarms' Project Sea Dragon (PSD) to avoid its liability to construction contractor Canstruct over works at a prawn facility in Legune Station in NT over the border from Kununurra, which an adjudicator had previously deemed to be owed $13.9 million - a decision that prompted the group's calling in of voluntary administrators in early 2023.

The court also ordered the project to be wound up with KordaMentha as liquidators.

But according to an announcement by Seafarms made after the market close yesterday, Project Sea Dragon will "continue its business as usual", with the founder stock centre in Exmouth, WA continuing to improve the quality and performance of broodstock targeted for the project.

"PSD is currently producing export product from Seafarms' Queensland operations to build the export market for PSD and continues to be very active in pursuing funding for Project Sea Dragon," the company stated.[...]

IN BRIEF - Barramundi Group: Facility offer of BND 15mil received for expansion of Brunei operations

Thursday, February 29, 2024

Barramundi Group Ltd (“Barramundi Group” or the “Company”) (EURONEXT: BARRA) is pleased to announce that its Brunei operations have secured a facility offer of BND $15 million from a Bruneian financial institution.

The facility, subject to finalization and completion, will be used to fund the first phase of the Brunei expansion and pivot to BG 2.0. The financing allows us to execute the 2 key components of this first phase:

  • The construction of a RAS Broodstock and Hatchery center, complementing the existing RAS Nursery operations; and
  • Immediate deployment of sea cages at our existing sea lease, Pelong Rocks. This deployment is slated for mid 2024.

With the new broodstock and hatchery facility, the Brunei operations will be able to capitalize on the genetic nucleus from our Singapore broodstock – naturally bred and selected over 20 years – to spawn and culture fry and fingerling within Brunei. The capacity of this facility will allow Brunei to be sufficient not only for the Phase 1 Pelong Rocks grow-out cages, with an annual capacity of 1,000 tonnes, but also for Phase 2 requirements of the planned 3,000 tonne land-based RAS facility.

The immediate deployment of Pelong Rocks will help to smoothen the gap in production and revenues, but also provide the Group with an opportunity to re-enter the China market – one of our largest and key markets, previously unreachable with a Singapore-grown product.[...]
