Other Media | The Fish Site: Mowi wins fish welfare award

Thursday, June 16, 2022

Mowi has won a special recognition award at Compassion in World Farming’s Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards, which took place in London today.

The awards aim to showcase the work of food businesses around the world that make genuine and meaningful improvements to the lives of farmed animals, and the sustainability of their supply chains.

According to Compassion, improvements in fish welfare are lagging behind those for terrestrial animals, largely because fish sentience is generally less recognised.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: The French Government welcomes the new limits on sulfur emissions in the Mediterranean

Thursday, June 16, 2022

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Salmon may emerge unscathed as inflation woes deepen, suggests analyst

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Salmon has many things working to its benefit as a protein option such that it would take more than high prices for consumers to start walking away from it, an industry analyst suggests.

Recent record-high salmon prices may have prompted discussions about a “consumer breaking point” – the price level at which consumers start walking away from salmon – but senior industry analyst Gorjan Nikolik at Rabobank International said these discussions might overlook some key points.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: No-show at the trade show

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Since writing my contribution last month, I have been travelling, including a short visit to the Aquaculture UK event in Aviemore. There was a real buzz about the place, not just because of the ability to meet friends old and new but because the new organisers had much improved the visitor experience.

I have heard rumours that the event might develop in future years into some form of Scottish Aquaculture Festival rather than the current focus on the trade show. Perhaps this might attract an even wider audience?

In the first two, the restrictions affect bottom gear, such as trawling, volanta, and semi-pelagic trawling. In the last two, pots and static nets and even hook lines are also prohibited.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: The war could create a 'hole' of 300 million euros in the profits of the EU fishing fleet

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

The war in Ukraine affects the EU fisheries sector - and the last few months have been very difficult for EU fisheries. Marine fuel prices have nearly doubled following Russian military aggression against Ukraine, which has disrupted fishing activity.

Fishing activities near Ukraine had to cease for security reasons. The high operating costs have led some operators to remain in the port.
