Other Media | FiskerForum: Fish to your door launches #NHSFISHFRIDAYS – 50% off for cornish NHS Heroes

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

The #FishToYourDoor campaign started by Seafood Cornwall is introducing a new initiative, with hefty discounts for NHS staff.

The county-wide #FishToYourDoor platform launched by Seafood Cornwall was an immediate response to the impact of Covid-19, designed to connect households with fresh fish and keep fishermen going to sea.

With more than 40,000 customers reached within the first few days of the campaign in early March, #FishToYourDoor has gone from strength to strength, and continues to add new merchants to its growing list of sellers with delivery capacity, and promoting fishermen selling direct from their boats.

Since launching, #FishToYourDoor has brought over 3500 new customers to affiliated merchants and received a stream of delighted feedback from people trying local Cornish fish, fresh from the merchant, for the first time.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Why China should reform its aquaculture extension system

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

China’s aquaculture extension system – which has been the main engine for growing the country’s aquaculture sector over the last 40 years – must overcome problems such as “insufficient funding, outmoded staff structures, and inefficient management systems” in order to ensure the long term prosperity of the sector.

This is the conclusion of a new study into the role of the extension system, which can be traced back to the 1950s, when the government required aquaculture experts to study technology for seaweed farming and fish farming in ponds, and provided technical guidance to aquaculturists through state-owned aquaculture farms.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Mowi Scotland earnings hit hard by fish health issues

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Mowi Scotland’s operating profit fell by 84% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same period last year as the salmon farmer continued to tackle problems with disease and climate-related issues.

Operational earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) were €5.7 million in January to March, down from €35.8m in Q1 2019, Mowi revealed in its Q1 report. EBIT per kilo was €0.63 (€2.27).

Other Media | FiskerForum: Seafood pivotal for rebuilding Norway's economy

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

The seafood industry is expected to play a key role in getting Norway’s economy and workforce up and running again in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘For Norway and other seafood nations, this is a real opportunity for a blue revolution and illustrate the real meaning of sustainability – social, economic and environmentally. Seafood can be an important part of the solution in terms of rebuilding communities, creating jobs and responsible and low-carbon footprint food production,’ said Norwegian Seafood Council CEO Renate Larsen.

She commented that as society is now slowly gradually opening up after successfully curbing the spread of the virus in Norway, the job of how to get the economy back on track has started in earnest. In the past week, Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Fisheries Minister Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen have been meeting representatives from the seafood industry to discuss what role it should play in rebuilding the economy.

Otros Medios | Industrias Pesqueras: La industria escocesa reclama al retail británico que reabra los puntos de venta de pescado fresco

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Seafood Scotland, en nombre del sector escocés de productos del mar, ha escrito a los directores ejecutivos de los principales supermercados del Reino Unido, instándolos a reabrir sus mostradores de pescado fresco. “Con los mercados internacionales cerrados, y el sector de la restauración del Reino Unido en gran medida cerrado, todo el sector depende de la venta minorista para sobrevivir, pero la mayoría de los puntos de venta de pescado fresco en los principales distribuidores han estado cerrados durante semanas”, explica la organización en un comunicado, que señala que solo Morrisons ha reabierto sus mostradores en los últimos días.

En la carta, enviada a los líderes de ASDA, Sainsbury's y Tesco, Donna Fordyce, directora de Seafood Scotland, señala que “es imperativo que los mostradores de pescado se vuelvan a abrir para permitir a los consumidores acceder a pescado fresco capturado localmente como parte de su tienda”.

IN BRIEF - Bluefin tuna mask for COVID-19

Tuesday, May 12, 2020

Kindai University students have developed a mask based on bluefin tuna.

Considering that the Aquaculture Research Institute of the University of Kindai has been the one that achieved the Complete farm-raising cycle this specie is deeply rooted in the students

32 years of issues cleared by consistent monitoring

The Aquaculture Research Institute launched research in completely farm-raising bluefin tuna in 1970.

Success came in June 2002. It took 32 years because the bluefin tuna is a delicate fish and little was known about its habitat.

The key was to consistently monitor the fish. In the research process, It was discovered that the artificially hatched fry died suddenly.

Therefore, various steps were taken to ensure an appropriate environment for cultivation. Eggs were then harvested from the fish once reached to adulthood, which completed the life cycle.
