IN BRIEF - Mowi ships fish direct to Denmark to solve processing bottleneck

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Mowi Scotland has exported 594 tonnes (gutted weight equivalent) of salmon directly from five pens at its Portnalong site on Skye to the port of Hirtshals in Denmark on the Hav Line processing boat Norwegian Gannet.

The move comes as salmon farmers face the increasing possibility of a no-deal Brexit, and the likelihood of huge delays at cross-Channel ports, but in this case Mowi said it was entirely about solving a problem of limited capacity at its Blar Mhor primary processing plant at Fort William.

Mowi Scotland spokesperson Ian Roberts said: “As Mowi has previously reported, current processing space is at capacity and doesn’t allow for additional fish volumes at our plant in Fort William during peak periods. We have been processing additional volumes in Ireland over the past months and are now processing and packaging some volume in Denmark. We continue to work with our employees to create a long-term solution for fish processing in Scotland that will accommodate all our requirements and future growth.”

IN BRIEF - Japan shells out more for summer fish as catches dry up

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

TOKYO - Changing sea temperatures are making popular fish harder to come by in Japan, driving up prices for dinner table mainstays.

The port of Kesennuma in Miyagi Prefecture -- Japan's top landing spot for skipjack tuna for 22 years running -- is usually bustling with fishing crews and brokers in the spring and fall, when skipjack migrate close to Japan. But not a single skipjack was caught in Kesennuma for a month from late May, and the haul through the end of July was 70% smaller than 2018's.

Overall catch volume at major ports across Japan is down 40% on the year, data from the Japan Fisheries Information Service Center shows. As a result, local wholesale prices for skipjack -- used to make dashi broth, a culinary staple -- averaged 25% higher between January and July 2019 than a year earlier.

IN BRIEF - Fish buyer in P.E.I. opens plant to promote Canada's sustainable tuna fishery

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

A tuna buyer in Prince Edward Island has opened Canada’s first federally licensed plant to process bluefin tuna for the world sushi market.

Jason Tompkins of OneTuna, says after 18 years as a tuna buyer he saw an opportunity to change the way tuna is bought, sold and marketed, and he’s looking to spread the word that Canada has the most regulated and sustainable tuna fishery in the world.

Before getting certification from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Tompkins was limited to selling whole fish to Japan, the United States and Canada, but now he can sell select cuts to more markets and even freeze it for later transport.

IN BRIEF - Greenpeace response to FishChoice interim policy on forced labor

Friday, August 09, 2019

Washington, DC – FishChoice released an interim policy on forced labor, child labor, and human trafficking today.

In response, Greenpeace USA Senior Oceans Adviser Andy Shen said:

“Greenpeace applauds FishChoice’s decision to institute an interim policy on forced labor, child labor, and human trafficking covering all of the Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) listed on its platform, FisheryProgress, though more work remains to develop a strong permanent policy that will ensure long-term change on the water. As FisheryProgress covers more than 85% of FIPs globally, FishChoice’s policy could significantly reduce human and labor rights abuses in fisheries around the world, and by extension, illegal and overfishing. With over 2,000 users, FishChoice’s policy could also catalyze much needed improvements on human rights due diligence by U.S. buyers.

IN BRIEF - Oyster seeding: A ‘tangible, physical’ way to help the water

Thursday, August 08, 2019

Ocean Gate, N.J. - Restoring oyster beds and helping keep the water clean isn’t just for scientists and environmental groups anymore.

Students, younger children and those with no particular scientific background like the idea that something they do this morning can be helping the earth by this afternoon.

Kenna Allocco, 12, of Beachwood, New Jersey, recently helped remove bags of whelk shells with baby oysters attached to them from a bubbling tank in preparation for their journey to a Barnegat Bay reef, in between asking a dozen or so incisive questions of program leaders.
