Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: 100% deforestation-free Brazilian soybeans for the European salmon industry

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Brazilian soybean suppliers for the salmon industry, CJ Selecta, Caramuru and Imcopa / Cervejaria Petrópolis, will implement a 100% deforestation-free soy value chain. It is a "bold and historic" commitment that sets a new benchmark for sustainable supply chains and is in stark contrast to the large Brazilian soy traders, Mowi explains on his website. The measure affects all seeds that have been planted since August 2020.

As a result of the measure, the majority of the global farmed salmon industry, including the entire European salmon sector, will source soybeans from Brazilian suppliers whose soy value chains are 100 percent free from deforestation and conversion.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Brexit chaos compensation will be £23m, PM says

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Scottish seafood exporters have called for more details after Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared to promise a £23m compensation fund for businesses affected by customs chaos following the end of the Brexit transition period.
The Prime Minister’s pledge came on a day of protest as more than 20 lorries, representing angry seafood exporters, staged a go-slow protest in Whitehall. The protest went off peacefully although the Metropolitan Police said 14 people, all either drivers or passengers, have been reported for Covid-related offences.
Boris Johnson said: “Where business, through no fault of their own, have experienced bureaucratic delays, difficulties getting their goods through and when there is a genuine, willing buyer on the other side of the Channel, and they’ve had a problem, then there’s a £23m compensation fund that we’ve set up and we’ll make sure that they get help.”

Other Media | EuropaAzul: European aquaculture in serious losses due to Covid-19

Monday, January 18, 2021

European aquaculture assumes significant losses due to the pandemic that are putting the viability of many companies at risk. In Spain, those harvested in 2020 are judged as "serious losses" due to hotel closures and the drop in tourism.

They also noticed low prices due to imports of fish from Turkey and Greece, or salmon from Norway. The aquaculture employer Apromar released a balance of the sector, which highlights the impact of the coronavirus and the "unstable scenario" for 2021.

Spanish fish companies maintained their activity during the confinement, as an “essential sector”, but “the operational complications and the volatility of the markets have been difficult challenges to overcome”, according to Apromar.
