Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Marine aquaculture has been developing rapidly in Turkey over the past decade, according to a new research paper.

A new 430-page report from the Turkish Marine Research Foundation (TUDAV), “Marine Aquaculture in Turkey: Advancements and Management,” offers a thorough examination of the aquaculture sector, looking at lessons learned, how Turkey is embracing a “blue economy” model, and the challenges the country faces in improving the sustainability of its fish and shellfish farming sectors.

Turkey’s aquaculture industry is thriving due to the introduction of new technology, improved management, and production techniques, tighter environmental regulations, and international partnerships helping to open up new markets, according to the report.

IN BRIEF - Kuruma Shrimp Farm Closed and Demand Slashed Due to COVID

Monday, February 22, 2021

The shrimp farm in Shirahama City, Wakayama Prefecture, will close at the end of March. Demand dropped dramatically due to the coronavirus.

The aquaculture business started in the city in April 2016. A total of approximately 4 tons was shipped annually to markets and suppliers across the country, but the impact of COVID since last spring had a direct impact. The more that was shipped, the more the deficit increased, so it was decided to close it.

Due to the closure, live shrimp will be sold at a bargain price starting March 1. One kilogram (about 100 animals) costs 6,000 yen and 500 grams costs 3,000 yen. The size of each animal is around 15 cm. Until the 6th, but it will end as soon as it runs out.

IN BRIEF - Akvaplan-niva: Disputas Sanna Matsson - knowledge for kelp cultivation

Monday, February 22, 2021

We are so proud of our colleague Sanna Matsson who is now ready to defend her dissertation for the degree of Philosophiae doctor (PhD) at UiT Norway's Arctic University. The date for the dissertation and trial lecture is Thursday 4 March. Both trial lectures and disputations are conducted digitally and streamed so that the audience can follow the events.

The theme of Sanna's dissertation is kelp cultivation with a special focus on sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima). This species is considered the most suitable kelp species for farming along the Norwegian coast. A challenge related to kelp farming is that kelp hosts various growth organisms and this degrades the quality of kelp. To assist kelp growers in identifying the optimal time for sowing and harvesting, Matsson has investigated growth at different latitudes, seasons and sea depths as well as related to kelp's age and nutrient content. The work is part of the MACROSEA project led by SINTEF Ocean

Other Media | FiskerForum: Keeping Up The Pressure On Government

Monday, February 22, 2021

As fishing businesses in the UK struggle to survive the combined effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the pst-Brexit fallout, according to the NFFO, things for the sector are getting worse rather than better.

The NFFO has again written to Secretary of State George Eustice and Fisheries Minister Victoria Prentis, seeking a second round of support for struggling fishing businesses.

‘I wrote to you on 1st February, 2021, making the case for a further tranche of financial support for the fleets in England who are facing multiple challenges. 

I am writing again to press you on this matter because things in our sector are getting worse rather than better,’ reads the letter signed by NFFO chief executive Barrie Deas.
