Other Media | SalmonExpert: New proposal for the reorganization of Nova Austral includes its sale

Friday, September 08, 2023

The Nova Austral Creditors' Meeting, which was to be held yesterday, was suspended, and precisely the salmon farmer presented a new proposal for the Judicial Reorganization Agreement, so that this time it would be accepted by the bondholders and the banks -after the existing disagreements between the parts-, in a 58-page brief.

Thus, the purpose of the proposal –in general terms– is the restructuring of the total debt of the company through the granting of new conditions for the payment of the rest of the credits subject to the Reorganization Agreement and the search for investors for capital financing of work

IN BRIEF - Fujian coast develops coastal aquaculture

Thursday, September 07, 2023

Technology further strengthens the province's marine products dominance
The coast of eastern China's Fujian Province has abundant marine resources and is known for its vigorous development of offshore aquaculture. Ahead of the 6th Chinese Farmers' Harvest Festival on September 23, the province's coastal aquaculture bases in Fuzhou, Ningde, Putian and other coastal cities will welcome the harvest season.
With a sea area of 136,000 square kilometers and more than 3,700 kilometers of coastline, Fujian's production of aquatic products such as yellow croaker, abalone, oysters, seaweed and seaweed ranks first in the country.
More than 1,100 5G base stations have been installed along the coast. As a result, wireless networks completely cover nearshore areas in Fujian, giving it a unique advantage in the development of the marine economy. At the same time, technological innovations continue to be made throughout the industrial chain related to marine fishing and aquaculture.
Fujian produces more than 80% of the country's farmed large yellow croaker, more than 70% of the farmed abalone, and about 50% of the seaweed.[...]

IN BRIEF - Blumar's strategy to improve the results of its salmon farming area

Thursday, September 07, 2023

In the second quarter of 2023, Blumar's salmon farming segment recorded a slight drop in revenue, from US$91.6 million to US$90.3 million, while it went from profits of US$6.5 million in the same period from 2022 to losses of US$ 7.1 million currently.
The commercialized volume of Atlantic salmon expanded by 16%, driven by larger harvests, which went from 24,549 tons WFE to 27,433 tons WFE. Of the total, 69% came from the Aysén region and 31% from Magallanes.
General Manager of Blumar, Gerardo Balbontín -->
For its part, the average price had an increase of 6% at the end of the second quarter compared to the same period in 2022. The above is explained by the recovery of demand in the main markets. The ex-cage cost reached US$ 5.1 per kilo WFE, being 17% higher than the previous US$ 4.37 per kilo WFE. This result is due to higher costs of food, health and indirect production, mainly attributed to inflationary effects.

IN BRIEF - Fish farming for change: empowering Papua New Guinea communities

Thursday, September 07, 2023

A UNSW Sydney researcher has received $2.6 million in funding to expand fish farming and its positive social impact in Papua New Guinea.

Associate Professor Jes Sammut from UNSW Science has received more than $2.6 million from the Australian Centre for International Agriculture Research for a project that will build on previous work to improve fish farming in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

“We have transformed lives under our previous projects. It is exciting to be funded to do more in PNG,” A/Prof. Sammut said. 

“Over the last 13 years I have witnessed many positive societal changes where we have introduced fish farming. The increase in protein in diets is the most obvious, but the increase in self-esteem and pride in farmers is also uplifting. I am particularly heartened to see the peace and hope that fish farming has brought to people who were once engaged in long-term tribal fighting.”

In collaboration with the National Fisheries Authority (NFA), the new project will introduce technologies to boost commercialisation through larger farms and expand training networks for fish farming.
