Other Media | WorldFishing: Can aquaculture be sited sustainably at maritime ports?

Friday, April 19, 2024

Over the years, there has been much focus on the coexistence of offshore renewable energy and aquaculture, two rapidly growing industries that share a common resource: the ocean. Bringing these two industries together has the potential to generate economic, environmental, and social benefits, while addressing multiple challenges from food scarcity to climate change.

The same could be said for aquaculture and maritime ports. As ocean-based industries continue to expand, careful spatial planning is important to reconcile existing ocean uses and manage environmental impacts effectively.

Other Media | aqua.cl: AmiNova: Skretting's new food formulation concept

Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Skretting launches AmiNova, a new feed formulation concept that enables even more precise nutrition, resulting in better utilization, greater efficiency and reduced release of nutrients into the environment.

Aquaculture plays an essential role in meeting the demands of a growing population, while reducing pressure on the planet's resources. Skretting has a long history of pioneering solutions to support this ambition. Over the last decade, we have successfully reduced reliance on marine raw materials in our feed formulations, while exploring new ways to achieve greater nutritional efficiency and improve animal resource utilization.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Salmon sector urges Norwegian government to end fish quota deadlock

Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Salmon farmers and feed producers faced with the prospect of having to stop buying Northeast Atlantic blue whiting – a key marine ingredient for salmon feed - have urged the Norwegian government to talk with them about agreeing its quota for the fish with other countries.

The so-called Coastal States that fish the Northeast Atlantic region agree on how many tonnes of whiting should be fished, but not on what percentage of that total each state can have.

IN BRIEF - ISA virus found in two Bakkafrost pens at farming site A-19 Vágur

Monday, May 27, 2024

Tests taken at farming site A-19 Vágur have found the presence of the ISA virus in two pens. The full site has 1.0 million fish in total, with an average weight of 2.6 kg.

Strict measures have been implemented to contain the virus and prevent further spread. The two affected pens will be harvested out immediately and the full site will be harvested out within two months, in line with Faroese regulations. Consequently, estimates show that harvest volumes for 2024 will be reduced by 2,000-3,000 tonnes of gutted weight by the accelerated harvest of the entire farming site A-19 Vágur.

The Bakkafrost business was established in 1968 by the two brothers Hans and Róland Jacobsen. The first processing plant was built the same year. The third brother, Martin Jakobsen, joined the company in 1971.

Bakkafrost (OSE: BAKKA) is the largest salmon farmer in the Faroe Islands. The Group is fully integrated from feed production to smolt, farming, VAP and sales.

IN BRIEF - Johnny Håberg will be the new seafood envoy to Africa

Monday, May 27, 2024

The Norwegian Seafood Council has hired Johnny Håberg (52) in the position of seafood envoy to Africa. Håberg will lead the Seafood Council's work in the region from summer 2024.

"I am very pleased that Johnny will be the Seafood Council's new envoy in an important region for Norwegian seafood. We look forward to putting his broad international experience from the seafood industry in place, and very good knowledge of some of the products that are relevant for the region", comments Børge Grønbech, chief executive of the Seafood Council.

Looking forward to the opportunity

Over the past five years, Norwegian seafood exports to Africa have skyrocketed to almost NOK 2 billion, with a focus on key markets such as Egypt, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Congo Brazzaville, Ghana and Morocco

Strong international seafood profile

Håberg comes from the position of export director at Salmon Brands, which he has held since 2017. He has also been stationed in Brazil for several years, first as the Seafood Council's envoy to Brazil in the period 2010 to 2015, before leading Brødrene Sperre's business and strategy work in Brazil.

Johnny Håberg thus replaces Trond Kostveit, who has led the Seafood Council's work since the initiative in Central and West Africa began in 2016.

IN BRIEF - TRIBUNE: 'French fishing in danger'

Monday, May 27, 2024

Members of the Merchant Marine, Fishing and Pleasure, and Navigation and Oceanology sections of the Marine Academy - Gérard d'Aboville, Francis Baudu, Jean-François Bernicot, Serge Beslier, Alain Biseau, Marc Chevallier, Bernard Datcharry, Patrick Geistdorfer, Olivier de Kersauson, Alain Laurec, Bernard Mazuel, Frédéric Moncany, Marc Pajot and Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée - wanted to express their concern about the crisis in the sector.

The current crises, covid, and Ukraine, have shown the importance of ensuring the security of the nation's supplies and our food sovereignty. The role of maritime transport is obvious but that of maritime fisheries is less so.

Media campaigns aimed at demonizing so-called “industrial” fishing in general and trawling in particular place the debate on a much more emotional than rational terrain.

It seems important to us to remember that a large part (60%) of French fishing landings comes from trawling, an activity practiced almost exclusively by vessels over 12 meters long which some describe as " industrial" . That the trade balance in seafood products is very largely in deficit (4 billion euros), and that aiming to eliminate large trawler boats would only aggravate this deficit (unless consumption decreases drastically, which does not seem to neither possible nor desirable).[Continues...]
