The Portuguese presidency predicts "a great road" ahead in 2021

The traditional European Council of Ministers of Agriculture and Fisheries (popularly known as Agrifish) in December closed incomplete in 2020 in the absence of the result of the ‘Brexit’ negotiations. With the mystery already cleared, the European leaders met this morning, by videoconference, to agree on the next steps.

The Portuguese Minister of the Sea, Ricardo Serrão Santos, acted as master of ceremonies within the rotating presidency of the Council of Portugal. The Portuguese minister recognized the work of Michel Barnier, chief negotiator of the EU during the 'Brexit', and pointed out that in 2021 there is "a great road ahead"

SOUTH AFRICA
Monday, January 25, 2021

Demand for seafood products in the Middle East and Africa has been rising steadily, a trend that is likely to persist through 2027, according to a new report from Insight Partners, a venture capital and research firm based in New York City, U.S.A.

The report, “Middle East and Africa Seafood Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis,” found the value of the seafood market in the two regions is projected to grow from USD 9.3 billion (EUR 7.7 billion) in 2019 to USD 10.7 billion (EUR 8.9 billion) in the next six years.

Rising seafood per capita consumption, increasing demand for imported seafood products, and the emergence of specialty seafood restaurants are some of the factors anticipated to drive market growth in the regions, according to the report.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Salmon prices stuck in the doldrums

NORWAY
Monday, January 25, 2021

Salmon prices remain in a state of stagnation as the first month of 2021 draws to a close.

In Norway at the end of last week they were either flat or fell slightly due to a number of external factors. There has also been a reduction in slaughter size.

Bad weather in the north of the country affected supply last week, but so far there is little sign that prices are likely to rise as a result.

Prices in the medium to large weight class (three to six kilo) range from NOK 44 and NOK 47 per kilo with downward pressure on large fish. Scottish prices are thought to have fared only slightly better.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Broad Decline In US Fishing And Seafood Due To Covid-19

UNITED STATES
Monday, January 25, 2021

The US fishing and seafood sector has generated more than $200 billion in annual sales and supported 1.7 million jobs in recent years, but experienced broad declines in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 public health crisis, according to a new NOAA Fisheries analysis.

According to analysts, Covid-19 protective measures instituted in March across the United States and around the world contributed to an almost immediate impact on seafood sector sales. There was a strong start to the year, with a 3% increase in commercial fish landings revenue in January and February.

However, revenues declined each month from a 19% decrease in March to a 45% decrease by July. This translates to a 29% decrease across those seven months, as compared to five-year averages and adjusted for inflation.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Why live tanks are the future of oyster storage

AUSTRALIA
Friday, January 22, 2021

Keeping oysters in live tanks rather than in the water where they’re grown helps reduce double-handling, ensures quality and opens up potential new markets.

Ask most battle-scarred oyster farmers where the best place to store their oysters is, and they’ll tell you the same water that they’re grown in. Obviously. But younger farmers are changing their tune.

Four years ago, Ewan McAsh, the co-founder of SmartOysters*, wouldn’t have dreamt of keeping his stock anywhere but the river. But after installing his first live tank in 2016 he became a convert.There are now three tanks in operation on his farm and he plans on adding seven more in the next 12 months.

The capture of anchovies and sardines are two fundamental fisheries for Andalusian purse seiners. For the fleet in the Gulf of Cádiz, the agreement between the European Union and Morocco is key. “Our fishing ground is looking very good and we anticipate quota increases for both species next year, but for their good health it is very important to be able to fish in Morocco and give fishermen another alternative. It is important that the periodic reviews that the EU makes of its pacts are positive and that the agreement is keep, especially for the Barbate purse seine and for the bottom longline of that locality or of Conil and Algeciras.
