Friday, May 08, 2020

Covington, WA--The Northwest Aquaculture Alliance (NWAA) has issued an opinion piece regarding the recent lawsuit against NOAA by the Wild Fish Conservancy (WFC) that will effectively prevent Chinook salmon trolling in Southeast Alaska effective July 1, 2020.

Friday, May 08, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has upended the seafood industry worldwide. Reykjavik, Iceland-based Niceland Seafood’s chairman and co-founder, Oliver Luckett, sees an opportunity to transform that turmoil into a revolution.

And they have gone further by spinning out a new services company called DigiFresh, which they said aims to advance the industry through a networked solution and transform the seafood supply chain and the seafood-buying experience.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Europêche celebrates that the number of overfished stocks in the Atlantic has fallen by 50% since 2007

Friday, May 08, 2020

The European fisheries association, Europêche, today echoed the STEFC's annual report on the progress of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This document "brings excellent news about the good progress in the state of fish stocks in the EU," says the organization, which exemplifies the drop in the number of overfished stocks in the Northeast Atlantic, which have dropped by 50 % since 2007.

“On average, for all the stocks evaluated in this area, the fishing pressure has been reduced by almost half in the last 20 years, reaching Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) levels for most of them. As a consequence, fish stocks have increased significantly, reaching levels 50% higher in 2018 than in 2010, ”explains Europêche, who points out that, however,“ more efforts are still needed, particularly in the Mediterranean ”.

Thursday, May 07, 2020

GRIEG Seafood has reported good price achievement at its Shetland operation during the start of this year.

Announcing its 2020 first quarter results today, Shetland produced a harvest of 2,047 tonnes, up from 1,788 tonnes a year ago. And it achieved an EBIT or operating profit per kilogramme of NOK 6.80 compared with a LOSS of NOK 13.93 in Q1 2019.

(There were) high sea lice pressure and treatments during the quarter, but also underlying cost improvements year-on-year.’ The company expects a second quarter harvest of 3,900 tonnes and a 17,000 tonne total for the whole of 2020.
