Other Media | SalmonBusiness: European Commission begins investigation into “Norwegian Gannet” case

EUROPEAN UNION
Monday, February 01, 2021

Investigating Danish complaint about alleged Norwegian violations and protectionism.

Can a country benefit from free trade agreements with the EU while cutting off its trading partners from raw material supplies?

That is the question now being investigated by the European Commission, writes the Danish business newspaper Børsen.

Norway defends its salmon farming industry with demands that fish must be processed domestically before it is exported. It cuts off European processing businesses for raw materials.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Virtual Global Seafood Market Conference runs from 01 to 05 February

UNITED STATES
Thursday, January 28, 2021

The President and CEO of Seattle Fish Co., Derek Figueroa, is the new Chair of the National Fisheries Institute. Figueroa helms the Denver-based seafood distributor that boasts more than a hundred years in business.

“Seattle Fish has a legacy of using technology and engagement to do more in the seafood space,” said Figueroa.

“In 1918 this company created a cold chain system that used rail cars, sawdust and ice to transport fresh seafood to the landlocked state of Colorado. We were getting customers what they needed. That’s what NFI is doing with the Virtual Global Seafood Market Conference. We can’t meet in person, but the industry needs the data and insight we’ve come to rely on from GSMC. So we’re doing it virtually.”

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.
