Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Vietnam's pangasius exports only grow to Singapore and the UK

Sunday, August 30, 2020

Companies expect a change in trend in the third quarter

The value of Vietnamese pangasius exports fell by 29.8% in the first half of June compared to the same period in 2019, to 612.3 million dollars. The cause, the pandemic. The US and the ASEAN markets have been the ones that have registered the most with a 51.2 and 57.6% respectively, followed by the EU and China-Hong Kong markets with 36.2 and 11, 3% respectively in the value of exports. The pangasius companies expect that, starting in the third quarter of 2020, business activities will gradually stabilize in some markets, including the two largest importers (China-Hong Kong and the United States).

Sunday, August 30, 2020

New Bedford company Blue Harvest Fisheries is making good on its commitment to the fishing community in getting fishing vessels formerly owned by ‘Codfather’ Carlos Rafael back to sea.

The 78-foot Carrabassett, formerly Cowboy, is now ready to return to fishing, following the 83-foot Allagash (ex-Southern Crusader II) which was returned to fishing in July.

The Walton Family Foundation, National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, NOAA Fisheries, and the Chilean Salmon Marketing Council funded the initial phase of the campaign.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Atlantic Sapphire hit by delays and cost overruns as losses climb to $31.6m

Friday, August 28, 2020

Heavy losses for the land-based fish farmer.

The deficit was not unexpected, and is of course a function of low harvest volumes. The company had a turnover of 2.5 million dollars, where practically all the income came from the fish farm in Hvide Sande, Denmark.

The newly built giant facility outside Miami is far behind schedule. Originally, the plan was to begin commercial harvest  here in April. Then it was postponed to the third quarter. According to today’s Q2 report, Atlantic Sapphire will now harvest “the largest fish in September”.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Euro Star

Friday, August 28, 2020

After years of workboat building, including EuroCarriers and successful delivery of delousing barges, Neptune Marine has developed the EuroSupporter series, an all-round support vessel for the growing aquaculture industry.

With free deck space that is remarkable for vessels of this length, these workboats offer exceptional value for their size when it comes to their ability to install equipment (e.g. delousing installations) or operate as working platforms for mooring operations or maintenance of fish farms.
