Other media | SalmonBusiness: Alaskan fishermen losing $60 million a year since Putin’s embargo

Thursday, February 20, 2020

Russian seafood products – primarily salmon roe – compete in the U.S. at much lower prices.

In a white paper from the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) – the US state’s official seafood marketing arm – writes that US/Russia exports & imports are a one-way street that only benefits the former Soviet state.

Since 2014, there has been a Russian embargo on food products from the U.S. and other western nations bans all Alaska seafood products (except canned salmon, which is not exported to Russia in large volumes).

Russia represented a roughly USD 60 million market for Alaska seafood prior to the embargo, it wrote. However, Russia continues to export seafood to the U.S. almost entirely duty-free.

Prior to the embargo, Russia was the second most important export market for Alaska salmon roe after Japan. In 2013, without taking into account transshipments, the two markets took roughly 64% of all Alaska salmon roe exports, leaving no single comparable market for Alaska salmon roe other than Japan when the Russia market closed.

Salmon roe, primarily pink, accounted for 76.4 per cent of this export value in 2013, and the majority of export value in previous years as well.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Brussels makes reservations to cover the cessation of activity of shellfish workers on foot

Thursday, April 09, 2020

Spanish MEPs demand that the group not be left out of aid

The European Parliament's Fisheries Committee yesterday analyzed the aid package proposed last week by the European Commission to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus in the fisheries and aquaculture sector. After a two-hour debate with the commissioner of the branch, Virginijus Sinkevicius, through a videoconference riddled with continuous technical problems, the need to modify some of the points in order to support the Executive's approach was evident.

The Spanish MEPs insisted again on the importance of opening these grants to shellfish, but the Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries hides that shellfish are not victims "of a mandatory social distancing of safety and that they do not have great costs infrastructure »to exclude the sector from temporary cessation and loss of income aid.

Thursday, April 09, 2020

FFO RS, the IFFO Global Responsible Supply Standard for fishmeal and fish oil, has just announced its new name: MarinTrust. IFFO RS, originally founded by IFFO, the Marine Ingredients Organization in 2009, has grown significantly in this time and, currently, more than 50% of the production of marine ingredients in the world is certified by this standard. Its Board of Directors includes representatives of marine ingredient producers, marketers, feed producers, fish farmers, fish processors, supermarkets, marine conservation NGOs and related standards.

This change of name from IFFO RS to MarinTrust –with its corresponding logo-, and as explained by its Board of Directors, recognizes the journey undertaken by the certification program, started in 2014, by becoming a separate entity, with its own structure of government, statutes, goals and budget. As a third-party and business-to-business certification program, MarinTrust aims to lead best practices within the marine ingredients industry while allowing producers of marine ingredients to demonstrate that both the raw materials obtained and the ingredients Marine products are produced responsibly.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Spanish fishing holds the pulse of Coronavirus: 50% of the fleet continues to supply a full market

Thursday, April 09, 2020

Fishing in Spain is, at the moment, an industry at 50% of its capacity: half of the fishing boats and crews have decided to continue with fishing facing the COVID-19, the other has opted for mooring before the difficulties of complying with social distancing measures and the lack of health guarantees. Also due to commercial uncertainty. The distribution, however, resists. The entire distribution sector is still active.

In terms of health, coronavirus casualties are "practically negligible" among crews, both inshore and high. However, difficulties persist. In the national fishing ground, fishing organizations continue to demand masks and personal protective equipment. The foreign fleet faces the same problems to carry out crew relays in third countries.

It is the first diagnosis made by the Crisis Committee of the Spanish fishing sector, activated by Cepesca, the National Federation of Fishermen's Guilds and the National Federation of Provincial Associations of Retail Entrepreneurs of Fish and Frozen Products, Fedepesca, with the aim of making a exhaustive monitoring of the evolution of the crisis, given its impacts on fleet activity, in markets and markets, and ensuring the supply of fishery products to the population.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: First-quarter earnings increase for Norwegian seafood exports, Chinese market starts to normalize

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

Norway’s seafood exporters sold 213,000 metric tons (MT) of fisheries and aquaculture products worth NOK 9.6 billion (USD 914.8 million, EUR 847.7 million) to overseas markets last month, contributing to total first-quarter sales of 664,000 MT and NOK 28.6 billion (USD 2.7 billion, EUR 2.5 billion). In value terms, Norway’s Q1 seafood exports increased by 11 percent or NOK 2.9 billion (USD 276.2 million, EUR 255.8 million) year-on-year.

Despite the upturn, the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) confirmed that in the second half of March, there was “major turbulence” in both the European and U.S. seafood markets due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While there has been a fall in the overall demand for Norwegian seafood, NSC highlighted a few bright points. These include “gradual normalization trends” in some Asian countries such as China and South Korea, and an increase in online sales of seafood and food delivery services to households. The NSC said last month it will seek to maintain supply to its global markets, despite a downturn in demand and prices.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Cermaq Chile closes two processing plants, lowering production volume significantly

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

“These types of decisions are difficult for everyone impacted”.

In a press release, Cermaq Chile writes that it is closing its Ancud and Dalcahue process plants located on Chiloe Island, southern Chile.

This is due to the various regulatory modifications in the salmon farming sector that have been implemented in Chile in recent years. Cermaq Chile has now lowered the production volume significantly in the X and XI Region region.

The Mitsibushi-owned salmon farmer said that it only used 60% of the 120,000 tonnes capacity available from its four processing plants last year. It does not expect the volumes to increase to higher levels in the coming years.

Other Media | iLasks.no: Soon a month since the government introduced stringent coronary measures: How SinkabergHansen has tackled the crisis

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

When the government came up with the strongest and most radical measures in Norway in peacetime to fight the corona virus on March 12, the pipeline breeder SinkabergHansen appointed its own staff.

-One of the first things we did was send out a mandatory survey to all employees to get in touch and travel activity, in addition to raising awareness of the employees' own health status and possible risk group. We established our own criteria for the home quarantine. As a result, about 45 pieces were put into the home quarantine during March 13-14. Of course, this affected everyone to a greater or lesser extent, including those in close family, says personnel manager Frode Lauritzen to iLaks.
It is Lauritzen, in collaboration with quality manager Bjørn Gillund and community contact Ketil Rykhus, who has organized most of the work during the corona crisis. In addition, both the department head and the site managers have contributed.

The company has also been active on its own Facebook page to disseminate information on operations while the corona problems are ongoing.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Cleaner fish eggs flown into UK by private jet

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

Private jets are normally the preserve of the super wealthy but are being used by a Norwegian company to carry a different kind of VIP – Very Important Packages of lumpfish eggs – to the UK.

Skjerneset Fisk AS recently sent off a consignment of disease-free eyed eggs to its customers in Wales and Scotland, including Mowi-owned Ocean Matters. It was the second consignment to be made by private jet from Kristiansund to Manchester.

“We sent a full 38 litres with the last shipment, so that they can still maintain their large production of lumpfish for their salmon farming clients. We had to think in a new and creative manner, so we hired private aircraft for cargo of eggs,” said chief executive Tor Gunnar Otterlei.

Each litre contains between 50,000 and 70,000 eggs. Lumpfish eat sea lice and are used as a natural method of lice control on salmon farms.

Other Media | FishFarmer: April Fish Farmer out now

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

THE impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the seafood industry is the focus of our April issue, which features reports from across the sector.

We hear how Scotland’s leading salmon producers have overhauled operations to keep their teams safe and to enable key workers to get on with the job of producing food for the nation.

And in a special message, Scotland’s rural economy minister Fergus Ewing thanks the country’s seafood companies for continuing to work during the crisis.

‘Food production is something we should never take for granted, but it is only possible because of all the people working on fish farms and throughout the supply chain,’ he writes.

Meanwhile, Nicki Holmyard talks to shellfish businesses as they adapt to the challenges of the lockdown and the loss of the food service market.

IN BRIEF - COVID-19: Standby container ship to record 3 million TEU. Double 2009 crisis

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

The size of container ship moorings (waiting vessels) is expected to exceed 3 million TEUs* in April.French maritime research firm Alphaliner recently revealed. This is double the 1.52 million TEU recorded during the 2009 global financial crisis following the Lehman shock.

Demand has declined worldwide due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection. Container ship companies have been successively implementing large-scale trip reductions mainly on main routes, and the size of waiting vessels was 246 in early March, the largest ever ever.

A 20-foot-long (6.1 m) ISO container equals 1 TEU 

*The twenty-foot equivalent unit (often TEU or teu) is an inexact unit of cargo capacity often used to describe the capacity of container ships and container terminals
