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 | Industrias Pesqueras: The global transition to healthy diets could reduce the health cost of malnutrition by 97%, according to

Thursday, August 13, 2020

What is a quality diet? FAO summarizes the answer in four points: variety / diversity, suitability, moderation and overall balance. For the WHO, another UN body, a quality diet implies protection against malnutrition in all its forms, as well as non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, strokes and cancer. It is a "balanced, varied and adequate" selection of foods that are consumed over a period of time, which allows meeting the needs of macronutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates including dietary fibers) and micronutrients at the same time essential (vitamins and minerals) of each person according to gender, age, level of physical activity and physiological state. However, there is no magic formula. Its composition is a mixture of individual characteristics, as well as cultural context, locally available foods, and eating habits.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Industry’s interest in closed cages draws Fiizk to Scotland

Wednesday, August 12, 2020

Scotland’s potential as a market for closed cages has prompted the Norwegian company behind Cermaq’s semi-closed containment system (SCCS) to set its sights on the Scottish salmon industry.

Fiizk, which makes a cage that uses an impermeable tarpaulin wall instead of a net, is in the process of recruiting a sales / general manager to be based in Scotland.

The company’s marketing chief, Kevin Skarholt, said interest from Scotland’s salmon farmers in its product was the primary reason for having a permanent presence in the country.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Norwegian seafood exports hold up – despite challenging market situation

Wednesday, August 12, 2020

Norway exported seafood worth NoK7.9 billion in July, maintaining the same export levels as July 2019. So far this year, Norway has exported seafood valued at NoK60.8 billion. Export value has increased by 3% compared to the same period last year.

The value of last month’s seafood exports equalled last year’s record for July. There are a number of contributing factors, including a weakened Norwegian krone, but there are relatively large differences between species.

Saithe and herring prices have held up relatively well compared with more expensive species such as salmon and cod fetching lower Euro and Dollar prices, plus there has been a weaker demand for salmon, especially in some Asian markets.
