Other Media | The Fish Site: Challenging times for Chinese aquaculture

Tuesday, September 08, 2020

The growth of China’s aquaculture sector is being severely limited by issues including changing consumer demands, restrictive government policies and environmental issues, according to a recent paper that discusses the impact these could have on global seafood supply.

By 2030, China is likely to need an additional 6-18 million tonnes of seafood – an increase of 9-27 percent – to satisfy projected domestic consumption, according to a perspective paper published in One Earth, led by researchers from the Stockholm Resilience Centre.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Atlantic Sapphire optimistic despite COVID setbacks hampering US operations

Monday, September 07, 2020

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has shut down seafood processing plants, stalled commercial fishing seasons, gutted the foodservice industry, and put aquaculture operations at risk. One of the most heavily hit companies in the aquaculture industry might be Norwegian aquaculture firm Atlantic Sapphire, which has run into plenty of road bumps getting its U.S. recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) farm off the ground in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

In late July, the company was forced to initiate an emergency harvest of close to 200,000 fish, with a total weight of approximately 400 tons, only 150 tons of which were  sent for processing to be sold.
