Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: A Titanic error for Leo?

Monday, April 01, 2024

First Nations in western Canada have criticised Hollywood star and environmental and Indigenous rights campaigner Leonardo DiCaprio for a lack of knowledge and “cherry picking” which Indigenous rights he supports after he called for the closure of salmon farms in British Columbia.

In a social media post on Instagram, DiCaprio – star of Titanic and many other blockbuster movies - encouraged his 62.1 million followers to support a campaign by anti-salmon farming group Wild First. The group, backed by wealthy investor and sport fisherman Tony Allard, wants to stop BC salmon farm licences being renewed next year, in a move that would cost thousands of jobs and devastate remote First Nations communities that rely on the industry for work and income.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Wärtsilä receives a growing number of lawsuits in Russia

Monday, April 01, 2024

At least five shipyards have filed lawsuits in Russian courts against the Finnish leader in engines and propulsion systems for denial of supply. These claims, worth more than €11 million, are unlikely to succeed given that Wärtsilä is applying international sanctions and that all of these Russian shipyards belong to the state naval group USC, which is itself subject to sanctions.

11,277 million euros is the amount of the claims already known in Russia against Wärtsilä after the acceptance by local courts of the appeals presented by the Admiralty, Baltisk and Severnaya shipyards, all of them located in the Saint Petersburg region.

IN BRIEF - Argentina's 'star' products see good prices for 2024

Sunday, March 31, 2024

The current demand for Argentine shrimp has been high due to Easter. As production is low in Argentina, especially at ground-freezing plants, prices for finished products are rising. Cold storage stocks in Europe are low and FAO GLobefish expects prices to continue rising through 2024.
Squid prices remained stable in the initial months of 2024, with some greater demand for large sizes. Prices rose in view of the Easter sales and now, South African squid is selling at approximately EUR 1.00 per kg higher than a month ago, so it is expected that the prices of Illex squid from Argentina will also show a gradual increase in prices.
In the case of hake (hubbbsi), prices are expected to continue rising largely because logistical problems continue to be experienced for cargo shipments through the Panama and Suez canals and that the World Container Index (WCI) , is 1,300 USD more than the level of March 2023. Likewise, the fall in inflation in the Euro zone and the drop in interest rates keep domestic consumption and tourism very active.

IN BRIEF - FAO Globefish March European Price

Sunday, March 31, 2024

From Holy week and Easter, the main consumption period for fishery products in Europe, is being celebrated early this year.

Traders are stocking up quickly, as cold storage holdings in Europe are low for all major products. This strong demand is leading to higher prices in all leading markets. Notably, shrimp has suddenly regained popularity, after bleak demand which had characterized the whole of 2023; accordingly, its prices increased sharply. With regard to tuna, a decline in the prices of raw material revived demand for canned tuna, as processors were able to offer lower price levels.

Meanwhile, logistics problems continue to be experienced for shipments of cargo through both the Panama and Suez Canals. It should be noted that the World Container Index (WCI), which decreased by 20 percent between February 2024 and March 2024 to USD 3 160, is USD 1 300 higher than the level in March 2023.

In the long run, this is expected to result in higher prices of seafood such as tilapia, pangasius, hake, and shrimp. The Euro area annual inflation rate was 2.8 percent in January 2024, down from 2.9 percent in December 2023. Comparatively, a year earlier, the rate was 8.6 percent. European Union annual inflation was 3.1 percent in January 2023, down from 3.4 percent in December 2022. In this European Fish Price Report, 48 percent of the prices did not change compared with February 2024, with some rises noted for 27 percent of seafood products and declines for 25 percent.
