Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Around 4.7 million fish have escaped from Chilean salmon farms in 73 incidents between 2010 and 2020, according to a report from state aquaculture agency, Sernapesca.

The causes were largely climatic and oceanographic conditions at the affected farm sites.

Sernapesca is now looking at use of increased monitoring, big data and artificial intelligence to create predictive models of where escapes are most likely to occur.

Salmon farmer Grieg Seafood has announced five appointments to its new sales organisation which will operate from January 1, 2021.

“We will re-position the company in the value chain and evolve from being a pure salmon supplier to become an innovation partner for selected customers. We need people with a strong drive who want to build something new,” said Grieg’s personnel chief, Kathleen Mathisen, in a press release.

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.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Mowi organic salmon gets year-round guarantee

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

THE first organic salmon from Mowi Scotland has just entered the UK market following certification by the Soil Association, giving the company a guarantee of year-round supply. The fish, which is also certified to EU organic standards and approved by Agriculture Biologique in France, will be sold under newly created brand, the Scottish Organic Salmon Company.

Mowi said this new volume of organic salmon, combined with the organic salmon that has been produced by Mowi Ireland over the past 20 years, means that the company is now confident it can supply organic salmon 365 days a year. It is maximising its in-house expertise both in terms of experience in farming organic as well as selling the final product. All organic salmon from Scotland will be sold by the Mowi Organic team based in Ireland.

IN BRIEF | Scottish Skipper Expo set for 2021

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Following consultation with exhibitors and visitors, Mara Media, the organiser of Scottish Skipper Expo 2020 (13 and 14 November) has decided not to stage the event this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and has rolled the show forward to now take place in Aberdeen on 14 and 15 May 2021.

Hugh Bonner, managing director of Mara Media, said: “We are tremendously disappointed to make this decision, but we are confident it is the right move, given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Covid-19.

“Following consultation with the industry, our overwhelming feeling was it would not have been possible to deliver the high-quality show that the commercial fishing sector expects. The health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and the wider public was also a pivotal factor in the final decision.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Staff training, key to Aenor Fishing Tuna certification

Monday, August 10, 2020

Training of fishing personnel is essential. For this reason, the skipper and captain of vessels certified under the Tuna for Responsible Fishing (APR) standard receive training on good fishing practices and the status of the resources. They are trained before boarding the first time and, regularly, every three years, according to Julio Morón from OPAGAC.

Extractive tuna fishing is an activity that generates sensitivity in both interest groups and consumers, so it is important to guarantee aspects such as the traceability of the product or its responsible production. The AENOR Certification of Tuna for Responsible Fishing becomes a tool that values the work of the tuna fleet and allows the consumer to identify good practices.

Other Media | aqua.cl: Oceana values ​ decision of the Council for Transparency that orders salmon farmers to provide antibiotic and production data

Monday, August 10, 2020

For the first time, the resolution stipulates that all this information is of a public nature and a complete delivery of it is ordered.

As a "great triumph" he cataloged the marine conservation organization Oceana, the resolution in which the Council for Transparency (CPLT) ruled that the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca) must provide disaggregated information on the use of antibiotics and biomass produced in 2018, contradicting the salmon farmers who refused to provide such data, arguing that it was information that would affect their commercial rights.

Let us remember that this is information that Oceana has requested for many years through different channels, demanding greater transparency and access to information from the salmon farming industry, considering - the NGO has repeatedly said - the scope of the excessive use of antibiotics for the health of people and the environment.
