Other Media | Fish Farmer: 200 jobs lost if Iceland salmon ban approved

Wednesday, July 01, 2020

A Warning has gone out that the potential to create up to 200 jobs will be lost if a proposal to ban fish farming along the fjord which leads to the northern Icelandic city of Akureyri is approved.

Last month the city council told the government in a surprise move that it does not want aquaculture to develop along the 47 mile (70 km) ice free approach to Akuyrei known as Eyjafjörður. But the decision has angered a number of smaller towns, who believe fish farming can improve prosperity. For example the Fjallabyggd town council representing a community at the top of the fjord has signalled to the government it is categorically against such a ban.

Other Media | Alimarket: Alimentaria, postponed until 2021

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

As has happened with other competitions around the world, the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 has ended up delaying the celebration of Alimentaria while waiting for a normality that allows this type of event to be held. In this case, Fira de Barcelona has chosen to delay 2021 (from May 17 to 20), in a decision "agreed with the sector", according to a statement. In recent weeks, companies and associations have conveyed to organizers the convenience of delaying the fair to next year, while other companies hastened the deadline before making a decision that they did not see clearly.

The president of Alimentaria, Josep Lluís Bonet, stressed that “the decision supports the majority will of the productive and associative fabric of the sector, betting on holding the event in a more favorable environment and without so many limitations on international mobility.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Cermaq to trial closed containment in BC waters

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Cermaq Canada is to trial a semi-closed containment system at its British Columbia operations, the first such technology to be deployed outside of Norway.

The company, which is owned by Mitsubishi, has tested the system in Norway, successfully growing fish up to 1kg.

Components for the new style cage, designed and built by FiiZK in Norway, arrived in Canada earlier this month, and assembly is now underway.

Once the structure is complete, it will be taken by barge to Cermaq’s Millar Channel farm site in Clayoquot Sound, off Vancouver Island. It could be a companion to existing systems and farming techniques, said Cermaq.
