Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Salmon Group introducing insect flour from grasshoppers into salmon feed via Metapod partnership

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Bergen, Norway-based Salmon Group has joined forces with Ålesund, Norway-headquartered startup Metapod to develop a new, locally-produced protein source featuring insects for inclusion in salmon feed.

Under the agreement, Metapod will produce insect flour from grasshoppers and crickets to be used in feeds for Salmon Group’s network of salmon and trout farms. The process will also involve the refinement of food waste, a move that will see Salmon Group reduce its carbon footprint and reintroduce “a valuable resource” back into its value chain, the company said in a press release.

“The way Metapod considers resources corresponds with our sustainability work in practice. It does not claim land or resources which could be utilized for other food production for humans or animals. Additionally, they introduce a residual raw material – a ‘problem resource,’ so to speak – from other food production which otherwise would not have the same value,” Salmon Group Purchasing and Feed Manager Nils Inge Hitland said.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Major sushi chain Wasabi to negotiate turnover-based rents

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Accountancy firm KPMG to lead discussions with landlords.

The sushi chain Wasabi is to fight for a new way to pay for retail rent in light of the reduction in revenue social distancing will cause.

Wasabi has 60 stores, 37 of which are in Central London, and been feeling the effects of the coronavirus since the entire industry was put on ice on March.

In a press release published in the Caterer, Wasabi Chief executive Henry Birts said in these challenging times for the HORECA industry there “is now a big question mark over how and when demand will recover”.

Othe Media | The Fish Site: Blue start-ups come to the Emerald Isle

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Ireland has ambitions to become “the Silicon Valley of aquaculture”, according to Richard Donnelly, innovation and development manager at Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency (BIM).

In an interview with The Fish Site, Richard Donnelly discusses recent start-up success, the thorny question of the country’s aquaculture licensing system and how innovation will be the key to the sector's future growth.

Can you give a quick overview of BIM’s forthcoming aquaculture innovation workshops?

The workshops will be running from 5 to 16 October at the RDI Hub in Killorglin, Ireland. We want to attract 10 start-up companies in the aquaculture sector for a two-week intensive programme that will hone and develop their business ideas and bring them to mentors and, potentially, other investors.

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: ASMI plans for smaller budget in 2021

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

The budget for the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) will be smaller for the 2021 fiscal year, though it won’t be due to cuts made as a result of the coronavirus. Rather, the natural and gradual reduction in funding is a result of how the group managed the spending of a grant it received in 2019, ASMI said.

Last year, ASMI received USD 7.5 million (EUR 6.64 million) from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Foreign Agriculture Service’s Agricultural Trade Promotion program. The funding was intended to decrease the negative effects of international trade barriers and, as a result, the 2020 fiscal year was ASMI’s highest budget year since 2016.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Mayors mutiny over salmon tax

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

THE mayors of at least 70 local municipalities along the Norwegian coast are demanding a ‘fair share’ of any new salmon tax imposed on the country’s aquaculture industry.

The government has announced proposals for a tax of NOK O.40 (40 øre or cents) per kilogramme on salmon, trout and rainbow trout which is expected to produce annual revenues of at least a billion kroner (£85 million) for fish farming communities which they maintain could produce considerably less income than what they receive under the present Aquaculture Fund. Then they were being paid up to 85 per cent of revenues from sales and auction fees, which they claim could drop down to 25 per cent under the new proposals. ‘This would represent a significant reduction and we cannot accept that,’ they say, suggesting their share should be at least 60 per cent.

Other Media | FiskerForum: VÓNIN’S ZENITH reaches for height

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Vónin’s new groundfish trawl has already shown some promising results on saithe, haddock and redfish.

Vónin’s Bacalao trawls have been a longstanding part of the company’s gear inventory, and while the original design has been refined and optimised over the years as new materials and technology have become available, the basic Bacalao design has remained in place.

Instead of another round of upgrading this tried-and-tested trawl design to achieve more headline height, Vónin’s gear designers have gone for something new and have come up with the Zenith trawl after a process of simulation, flume tank testing and sea trials with the full-scale prototype of the new trawl.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Nova Austral accused by authorities of claiming up to USD 77 million in subsidy fraud case

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

Othe Media | SeafoodSource: Trump vows to escalate lobster trade war with EU, Canada, China

Tuesday, June 09, 2020

At a fisheries roundtable discussion in Bangor, Maine, U.S.A., on 5 June, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a proclamation to allow commercial fishing in the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. The change falls short of eliminating the monument entirely, and does not lift a prohibition on gas and oil drilling in the area, but rather is "taking down a no-fishing sign," according to Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt, who was at the table for the discussion.

President Barack Obama created the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts monument in 2016. President George W. Bush was the first to apply the act to the seafloor, when he declared the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument in Hawaii in 2006.
