Although there were concerns about the impact of the decline in the price of the competing Chilean product, the popularity of the Miyagi product, which is excellent in freshness and quality, is exceptional. The spread of the new coronavirus has subsided, economic activity has become active, and the supply of fresh fish has generally decreased. While some buyers were worried about the negative spread, producers said, "Amid high prices, this is the best encouragement."

A farmer at Ayukawa Beach in Ishinomaki City landed 7.1 tons (approximately 5,000 fish). All of them are ice-cold products, and Ishinomaki Fish Market put up a bid as its own brand "Kinka Gin", which is quickly processed with clean and sterilized seawater ice. The weight of one fish was mainly 1.2 to 1.5 kilograms.

IN BRIEF - Alaska House passes resolution to protect Southeast Alaska’s troll fisheries from lawsuit

Tuesday, March 07, 2023

The Alaska House of Representatives passed a resolution to protect Southeast Alaska’s troll fishery on Wednesday. House Joint Resolution 5 calls for state and federal agencies to defend Alaska’s troll fisheries from a lawsuit that seeks to hold them accountable for the decline in killer whales in the Puget Sound area. The legislation passed on a 35-to-1 vote.

Rep. David Eastman, serving District 27 in Wasilla, was the only “no” vote.

The complainant is the Wild Fish Conservancy, a conservation organization based in Washington. Their official position is that terminating Southeast’s king salmon troll fishery might allow Chinook salmon to migrate back down the coast through key hunting grounds of the Southern Resident killer whales.

The resolution to protect Alaska’s troll fishery was introduced by freshman Rep. Rebecca Himschoot of Sitka, who sits on the House Special Committee on Fisheries.

Many of the region’s local governments have passed similar resolutions opposing the lawsuit, including Juneau, Petersburg, Wrangell, Ketchikan and Sitka.

IN BRIEF - Aquaculture industry laments high cost of feed

Tuesday, March 07, 2023

Stakeholders in the aquaculture industry are lamenting the increasing cost of fish feed and materials in the market.

According to the Chief Executive of the Chamber of Aquaculture Ghana, Jacob Adzikah, the cost of fish feed has gone up by about 200%.

Again, the rising cost of ingredients such as maize and soya beans have resulted in the sector relying heavily on imports to produce feed for their fishes.

“These days the price of tilapia and cat fish are rising very fast and we need to take some drastic decisions to prevent this continuous increase in the prices of fish feed materials”, he said.
