IN BRIEF - Over 50% of UK consumers want to eat more seafood

UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday, November 14, 2019

Seafish, the public body that supports the £10bn UK seafood industry, published its results looking at UK consumers’ attitudes and behaviours regarding seafood. It commissioned the ‘State of the Nation’ research as part of its work to drive further seafood consumption in the UK.

The findings of the research reveal that only one third followed the NHS public health recommendation to eat two portions of fish a week. However, over half (55%) of consumers would like to eat more seafood. The research also uncovered some key consumer attitudes and preferences around seafood, with findings showing that that 70% of the fish buying public think that sustainability is important and that telling consumers about the specific health benefits of fish would encourage over 70% of them to eat more.

Greg Smith, head of marketing at Seafish, said, “The State of the Nation project contains some of our most important research to date, helping us better understand UK consumers.

Plastic is building up in the areas of the ocean where fish feed and grow, according to research.

A study found bits of plastic outnumber baby fish by seven to one in nursery waters off Hawaii.

It appears that the same ocean processes that concentrate prey for juvenile fish also accumulate floating plastics.

IN BRIEF - The bacteria which will help RAS aquaculture fulfil its potential

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Nova Q sees predictability in water treatment as being of core importance to the future success of RAS aquaculture.

In the opening comments to RAS-Tec, the global Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) conference held in Washington earlier this year, AquaBounty’s Sylvia Wulf set the scene: over the next 30 years, the global demand for fish protein will double. Now, in 2019, 90% of our seas are overfished; meaning 100% of this new demand will have to be provided by farmed fish.

The recent Aquaculture Frontiers market report on RAS aquaculture from Spheric Research and UCN identified 10 areas where RAS needed to develop to fulfil its potential. Four of those challenges related to biological filters, and specifically the effective management of ammonia and nitrate in the recirculating water.

IN BRIEF - HiSea Project to Launch the First Prototype of a High-Resolution System Providing Data on Sea Water Quality

FRANCE
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

NICE - The EU-funded HiSea Project will reveal the first prototype of its state-of-the-art platform providing high resolution data of sea water quality, at the project's General Assembly scheduled to take place in Nice, France on November 25-26, 2019.    

During its final stage, the innovative HiSea platform will provide data on physical parameters (meteorology, waves, currents, etc.) and water quality parameters (chlorophyll, marine pollution, etc.), based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of existing partners' proven platforms such as FEWS or AQUASAFE.  

The platform is built on an end-user centred approach, involving various end-users and stakeholders from the port and aquaculture industries. They have been directly involved in the service's design, development and operation. The HiSea system is aimed at improving the operation, planning and management of a variety of marine activities, focusing on the port and aquaculture sectors.

JAPAN
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Japan's certification system for protecting marine resources, called Marine Eco-Label Japan (MEL), is expected to be approved as an international standard by the end of this year, government sources said.

With eco-conscious Western nations in mind, Japan hopes to promote its efforts to show consideration for the Earth, thus boosting exports of domestic fishery products.

Established by the Japan Fisheries Association in 2007, MEL is a certification system aimed at maintaining the sound operations of the fisheries industry. Certified merchants can attach labels to their products to differentiate themselves from others.

IN BRIEF - Fishmeal developed for sustainable aquaculture

SWEDEN
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Aquaculture in Sweden could be more sustainable if by-products from industrial feed production were used instead of wild-caught aquafeed, according to studies at the University of Gothenburg.

One of the most important challenges in aquaculture is access to fishmeal. Demand outweighs supply today due to the rapid expansion of aquaculture.

A new thesis has studied farming of the two species Atlantic wolffish and European lobster.

IN BRIEF - Chilean Multiexport Foods Developing Blockchain Solution for Traceability of Salmon

CHILE
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Chilean Multiexport Foods is developing a blockchain-based solution that will enable customers to trace the origin of its salmon sold at various outlets, just by scanning a QR code.

The firm started by salmon farmer and processor in 2017 to find ways of integrating technologies like Blockchain, Artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) with its processes.

It has created a remote feeding facility for salmon using Artificial Intelligence and a video system wherein salmon at multiple farming centers are fed from a central office, which subsequently cuts down the workforce required for manual feeding.

IN BRIEF - Processed Meat and Seafood Packaging in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – Industry Report

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Demand for easy-to-prepare food such as processed meat and seafood is continuing to rise, in accordance with the appeal of convenience. However, retail shelf space devoted to chilled and frozen processed meat and seafood remains limited. Standard brands are giving big discounts to consumers, thus posing a threat to premium-positioned brands, which are not able to compete in terms of price.
