IN BRIEF - Consumer sentiment decreased for the first time in 4 months, due to re-expansion of corona infection

Tuesday, September 01, 2020

According to an August consumption trend survey released by the Cabinet Office, the consumer sentiment index, which shows consumer sentiment for the next six months, was 29.3 points, down 0.2 points from the previous month.

It was the first drop in four months, and the basic judgment regarding consumer sentiment was revised downward, saying that the "tempo of picking up is slowing down."

In addition, consumer awareness indicators regarding the outlook for living had improved since May, but the number of people infected with the new coronavirus expanded again, so in August, “income growth” and “employment environment” indicators were low for the first time in four months.

Tuesday, September 01, 2020

The decrease is explained by a lower average sale price (-21.5%) given the fall in market prices during the second quarter and a lower percentage of premium product sales during the semester, according to what was reported to the CMF.

Multiexport Foods recently presented its results for the first semester of 2020 before the Financial Market Commission (CMF). During the period, the company presented operating income of US $ 240.8 million, a figure 16.2% lower than reported in the same period of 2019.

IN BRIEF - Herring fishery to shut down off Maine for September

Monday, August 31, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A major fishery off New England will be slowed down considerably in September in an attempt to protect the fish’s population.

Atlantic herring are the target of a large fishing industry. They’re used for food as well as bait. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the inshore Gulf of Maine’s fishery for herring will be effectively shut down until Sept. 30.

The fishery is being shuttered for the month because fishermen are approaching a quota limit, the agency said. The shutdown began Aug. 23.

The herring fishery has been subject to tighter quotas in recent years because of concerns about the health of the fish’s population. Fishermen typically caught more than 100 million pounds of the fish per year earlier this decade, but caught only 24.7 million pounds last year.


Othe Media | SeafoodSource: New fishmonger refuses to sell the top 5 species

Monday, August 31, 2020

A determination to educate its customers on the importance of eating locally produced seafood has got new U.K. fishmonger business Cormacks Seafood off to a flying start.

Opened on 28 July in Totnes, Devon, the start-up shop is one of many seafood businesses in the United Kingdom to have turned its head to the domestic market using locally landed fish and shellfish. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, around 80 percent of the country’s seafood was exported, while most of the seafood consumed in the market was imported.

Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Norwegian state appeals after losing factory ship court battle

Monday, August 31, 2020

The Norwegian state has lodged an appeal after losing a court case involving Hav Line’s farmed salmon factory ship Norwegian Gannet, which was used by Mowi Scotland during a period when it was harvesting more fish than its processing facilities could handle.

In November 2018, on the day before the vessel’s naming ceremony, the then fisheries minister Harald Nesvik reversed the Norwegian Food Safety Authority’s decision that Hav Line’s operation to harvest and process fish and take them directly to a distribution centre in Denmark was legal.
