NORWAY
Friday, June 12, 2020

When Remøy Management needed a process boat, they came to Moen Marin with a challenge: Is it possible to put a processing facility on a service catamaran? Moen flipped around, and the answer was yes. “This is an innovative way of doing it, and the result contributes unique flexibility,” said Torfinn Hansvik, Technical Manager at Moen Marin, in a press release.

The market for process boats are hot these days. An increasing share of the aquaculture industry see the process boat as a solution to challenges related to profitability and fish welfare. And the demand is of course thereafter. But the aquaculture industry still has a way to go when it comes to utilization of capacity, said Hansvik.

Other Media | The Fish Site: Cyclone and pandemic prove doubly destructive for shrimp farming in West Bengal

INDIA
Friday, June 12, 2020

Cyclone Amphan has compounded the miseries of the shrimp industry in Bengal, which was already reeling under the severe blow of the coronavirus-related lockdown.

“It was not a cyclone but a monster that had come to devour our lives and livelihood. Our mud houses are submerged underwater and floating polythene sheets and household items are the only remains of the devastation. We managed to survive nature’s fury, but our source of income is gone forever. We have lost our shrimp farming for a very long time. We have to literally beg for survival,” rued Jaba Mondal, 39, who broke down twice while recounting her ordeal.

Future of Fish has launched a new campaign in partnership with fishers from La Islilla, Peru, to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to fishers and seafood workers.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: FAO predicts lasting negative effects for seafood from COVID-19

UNITED NATIONS
Friday, June 12, 2020

The biannual Food Outlook report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, released earlier this month, is predicting that seafood will see lasting impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, including reduced demand and pricing.

The report had a special focus this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted supply chains, forced the cancellation of industry trade events, and lead to widespread restaurant closures. This year's report contains a special feature, analyzing whether or not the COVID-19 disruptions to supply chains will result in a global food shortage.

As a result of COVID-19, the FAO report forecast that globally seafood production will be down 1.7 percent, or three million metric tons (MT), and the trade value of seafood will decrease by USD 5.8 billion (EUR 5 billion).

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Chinese market undergoing drastic change through coronavirus crisis

CHINA
Friday, June 12, 2020

Market research consultancies have been working hard to assess the actionable lifestyle trends and developments emerging in China in the wake of its coronavirus lockdown.

Even as home-bound Chinese turn to convenience cooking and take-out – which even before the coronavirus had been a popular option in major Chinese cities – market research consultants interviewed by SeafoodSource seem divided on the extent of the opportunity for frozen and processed seafood products in the Chinese marketplace.

Recent corporate financial reporting suggests major potential for the frozen and processed seafood sector in China.
