Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Data sharing lowers the risk of cyber-attacks in aquaculture

Saturday, February 20, 2021

On Sunday 10 January, AKVA Group was the victim of a ransomware attack that took down several of its systems. The company gave no comment on the ransom amount, or whether or not they paid.

These cyber-attacks are happening more frequently in Norway, hitting both the public and private sectors. A ransomware attack halted production at Norsk Hydro in 2019. Akva Group’s competitor Steinsvik (ScaleAQ) was attacked last April. This past December, the cruise line Hurtigruten and the Østre Toten municipality were both hit by significant ransomware attacks.

As ransomware attacks become larger, more frequent, and more sophisticated, all companies need to reexamine their strategies. Too often, “data security” is no more than a marketing tagline.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: MSC urged to raise the bar on shark-finning

Friday, February 19, 2021

A new report by a cadre of scientists and members of environmental NGOs is calling on the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to take further action to combat the practice of shark-finning.

The report, which analyzed the MSC’s policies relating to shark-finning, asserts that the organization should adopt a “fins naturally attached” (FNA) policy in order to curtail – and hopefully eliminate – shark-finning. The council is failing its zero-tolerance policy on shark-finning, a press release from the organizations behind the report said.

Thursday, February 18, 2021

A design of aquaculture pen which is billed as “the world’s most advanced aquaculture steel cage system” is set to be deployed in Scotland for the first time.

The Trident hybrid steel cage was developed by Poseidon Ocean Systems to cope with high energy conditions off the coast of British Columbia.

The new design has been ordered by salmon producer Loch Duart, through aquaculture distributor Trimara Services.

Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: FAO publishes a circular on tilapia aquaculture in Mexico focused on its economic and social performance

Thursday, February 18, 2021

FAO has published the Fisheries and Aquaculture Circular under the title "Tilapia Aquaculture in Mexico - Assessment with a focus on social and economic performance".

As stated in the document, world aquaculture production of tilapia grew from 380,000 tonnes in 1990 to 6 million tonnes in 2018, making it the fourth largest group of species within global aquaculture. With regard to Mexico, and as far as aquaculture is concerned, tilapia is the second most important group with 53,000 tons of production; accounting for around 20 percent of the 247,000 tonnes of total aquaculture production in 2018.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: This will change the salmon farming supply industry over the next decade

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Plans for two million tonnes of land-based salmon will bring radical changes to the entire industry.

10-15 years ago, recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) were a Danish industry. A small number of Danish companies traveled the world building facilities. Mostly smolt sites, but eventually also some smaller harvest-sized fish farms. What the fish farms had in common is that they did not make money. The fish had sky-high fixed costs, as total production costs were distributed in quite a small amount of kilos.

At the time, the salmon price was between EUR 3 and EUR 3.5 per kilo. Land-based production costs were much higher. Sea cage farmed salmon could be produced considerably cheaper. RAS was not competitive.
