CANADA
Monday, February 08, 2021

Canada’s fish farmers have sent an open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stressing the vital role aquaculture is playing in promoting his low carbon economic recovery strategy.

This is the second time in less than a month the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance has written to Trudeau and follows the controversial decision by Fisheries Minister Bernadette Jordan at the end of last year to order the shutdown of 19 open net fish farms in the Discovery Islands, British Columbia.

Many people within the industry are worried that aquaculture is being unfairly branded by some groups as an environmentally damaging activity

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Indian seafood exporters distressed over tightening Chinese market

INDIA
Monday, February 08, 2021

Seafood exporters in India are becoming increasingly worried about difficulties shipping to China in advance of the Lunar New Year holiday.

In the latter half of 2020, Chinese authorities reportedly detected coronavirus on the packaging of imported seafood and, in response, imposed bans on a number of exporters and  implemented strict inspection measures on seafood imports. As a result, a huge number of containers of imported frozen seafood have piled up in the Chinese ports of Dalian and Tianjin as local authorities conduct COVID testing, which is now required for all seafood products passing through customs.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: US seafood demand shifts from salmon to whitefish

UNITED STATES
Saturday, February 06, 2021

Much of the $200bn Americans used to spend in restaurants each year is now being transferred to the nation’s kitchens, new data from the Norwegian Seafood Council suggests. The trend appears to have favoured whitefish like cod and haddock, at the expense of salmon, although frozen salmon sales have held up.
Anne-Kristine Øen, the Seafood Council’s US envoy, said sales of Norwegian seafood increased by 3% to NOK 7bn in 2020, the first year of the pandemic.
Volumes rose by 7% to 85,000 tonnes. Sales were down by 4% in volume, but the value remained the same at around NOK 5bn.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Freezing winter weather tightens the supply and gives a price boost

NORWAY
Saturday, February 06, 2021

Reduced harvesting activity sends the salmon prices straight up.

“NOK 50+ (EUR 4.9). Ice-cold, postponed harvesting, MAB (maximum allowed biomass) harvesting last week,” said a trader, and added: “And it will crash again if only one of the big ones has some fish.”

“Around 51-53 kroner (EUR 5.0-5.2) at 3-6 kg, but 6+ about 47 kroner (EUR 4.6). Recoil on the decline will probably come, because market prices for finished goods are not a basis of more than 50 kroner (EUR 4.9) for raw materials,” said another trader to SalmonBusiness.

Other Media | FiskerForum: A New Voice For Ireland’s Fishing And Seafood Sectors

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Saturday, February 06, 2021

A new organisation established to represent all sectors of Ireland’s fishing, seafood and ancillary service industries has a number of agendas – and high on the list is seeking recognition by government and the Department of Marine that the seafood industry in Ireland requires their urgent intervention to redress the devastating effects of Brexit.

The Irish Fishing & Seafood Alliance (IFSA) has already been endorsed by some of the country’s largest and most prominent industry groups and is a self-funding, non-profit organisation, not constrained by any existing regional political divisions, nor is it divided by differing industry sector interests.

CHILE
Friday, February 05, 2021

Initiative financed by the Innovation Fund for Competitiveness of the Regional Government of Coquimbo, will formulate new foods for fish grown in the northern part of the country, based on the study and generation of flours from by-products of the fishing and aquaculture industry, such as molluscs and crustaceans . In this way, the project promotes the development of circular economy initiatives in the area.

"We seek to provide added value to these biological remains because they have high levels of nutrients that are feasible to be used in the manufacture of animal feed," explains Dr. Pedro Toledo, academic at the Universidad Católica del Norte and project director.

IN BRIEF | Norwegian salmon makes a splash in Spain and the Netherlands

NORWAY
Friday, February 05, 2021

Demand for salmon is increasing in many parts of the world, which is why Lerøy has expanded beyond its home market. Now Norwegian salmon products are also being made in the Netherlands and Spain.

The whole world wants salmon, and that is what it will get. Salmon, cod, fish cakes and coated products are all produced, caught and processed locally in Norway for the domestic market, but a growing quantity is also processed overseas. It is both sold locally and exported.

As well as increasing the turnover of a Norwegian company, this creates jobs in other countries. Last but not least, it gives even more people access to healthy, sustainable seafood.
