Other Media | Fish Farmer: Fish farms urged to go electric

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Seafood Norway, the trade organisation which represents companies and employers, has said it is vital that the country’s aquaculture industry should become fully electric within ten years.

It made the comments following a serious diesel spill last month when 5,000 litres of oil escaped from a tank at a Nordlaks site in the Troms region last month. Although the site is electrified the diesel came from a building used to supply oil for service boats. While the spill was quickly and efficiently dealt with, Seafood Norway said lessons had to be learned from the incident.

Seafood Norway CEO Geir Ove Ystmark said the organisation had already set a goal to get rid of all diesel powered fish farms and move to full electrification by 2030 – and that was already well underway.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Shrimp aquaculture: a tale of two pandemics

So notes Gorjan Nikolik, seafood analyst at Rabobank, in a new update on how the shrimp sector of various regions has performed since the outbreak in January.

Despite poor prices during 2019, the shrimp sector started the year with a great deal of optimism, Nikolik reflects.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: UK delays start of North Sea scallop season by three weeks

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

The British Government has decreed the precautionary closure of the scallop fishery in the North Sea, around Dogger Bank, until next August 29. Since the initial four-week closure began on July 12, sampling carried out by Cefas using its survey boat "Endeavor" has shown that scallops in the area are currently spawning or about to spawn.

After analyzing the first stock samples, it has been determined the need to extend by three weeks to finalize the data collection, produce a detailed analysis of the investigation and begin to prepare a longer-term management plan for the affected marine areas.
