Other Media | iLaks: Today, the new salmon train goes from Narvik to Malmö

Saturday, May 09, 2020

The freight company CargoNet and several seafood exporters have now joined forces to open up a whole new transport year for fish from northern Norway to southern Sweden, and from there to the rest of Europe.

This is good news for the seafood industry in the north - and can give fresh fish one extra shelf life in stores. The first test train leaves Narvik today on May 8, the second runs on May 22.

Significant growth in seafood production in Northern Norway is expected. The seafood industry needs better transport capacity to efficiently export increased volumes of fresh fish. At the same time, the fishing industry wants to move more seafood from truck to freight train, according to a press release from Vy.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The Danish fleet creates an ‘app’ to record the catch of protected species

Saturday, May 09, 2020

The Danish Fisheries Association (DF, for its Danish acronym) has announced the creation of a mobile 'app' that fishermen can install on their phones to record the catch of protected species. To date, an electronic journal was used for this registration, which reported greater problems for operations. The application will record the position of the boat and will have the possibility to send images.

This initiative has been funded by MSC through its fund, and will also be used by fisheries organizations in Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany.

"New technology can help promote sustainability, which is so important to Danish fisheries. As fishermen, we take care of nature, most Danish fishing is MSC certified, and the app is our new green initiative, ”says Kenn Skau Fischer, director of the Danish Fisheries Association.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: As fishing moratorium kicks in, China looks for ways out of coronavirus slump

Saturday, May 09, 2020

May Day may be a traditional Chinese holiday to mark global proletarian solidarity, but it’s also become an important date for the country’s seafood traders and importers. The first of May is the day that the country’s domestic waters are closed to fishing until 1 September.

The annual moratorium, enforced more zealously every year, has led to a surge in demand for replacements for favorites like croaker, ribbonfish, mackerel, and turbot. The moratorium has been foreshadowed this year with public trials of those caught illegally fishing in the Yangtze, which was closed to fishing this year for 10 years.

Despite the shutdown of domestic fishing creating an opening in the market, imports of seafood into China remain depressed as a result – both directly and indirectly – of the coronavirus. Seafood imports dropped 28 percent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2020 as social distancing efforts and tighter spending from consumers over economic concerns have tamped down seafood-buying in China.
