IN BRIEF - AKVA group Land Based and Vikings sign cooperation agreement for the Middle East

Tuesday, September 22, 2020

A design and cooperation agreement for design of a number of land based salmon farms in the Middle East has been signed between AKVA group Land Based and Vikings.

Vikings CTO, Morten Malle, says "In the Vikings team, we are very pleased to have entered into this cooperation agreement with AKVA group on the design of our facilities and as a strong technology partner in the Middle East. For Vikings it has been important to get an experienced and solid technology partner onboard, and AKVA group is a partner who shares Vikings vision for sustainable aquaculture. Only a few RAS suppliers have long-term experience in the design, construction, and operation of modern land based fish farming in this region, AKVA group being one of them. In this partnership we feel even more confident that we are creating successful projects and bringing long-term food security to the region”. 

Sales director in AKVA group Land Based, Jacob Bregnballe, who has extensive experience from land based projects in the region, expresses the importance of a close relationship between Vikings and AKVA group: “It is a challenge to build successful aquaculture projects in the Middle East and you really need to have a strong entity working tightly together. Many things are done differently in this region, often in ways we do not face on home grounds. In our new working relationship with Vikings we believe we have an excellent and ambitious team. Vikings have been progressing fast in the past few months and we can't wait to be part of the good progress”.

IN BRIEF - Indonesia halts exports from seafood producer after virus tests

Monday, September 21, 2020

JAKARTA - Indonesia has suspended exports from an Indonesian seafood company PT Putri Indah into China after its frozen fish products tested positive for the coronavirus, the country's fisheries ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The ministry said that an investigation was underway and that the suspension would only apply to PT Putri Indah "whereas the others can still do export activities as usual."

The virus was detected on the outermost side of the package, not on the fish, the ministry said.

The seven-day suspension began on Friday, it said.

A person in charge of marketing, answering a number listed for PT Putri Indah, hung up the phone without replying.

China's General Administration of Customs said on Friday that it would stop accepting import applications from PT Putri Indah for one week after a batch of frozen hairtail fish from the company tested positive for the coronavirus.

China customs said on Sept. 11 it would halt imports from companies for a week if their frozen products tested positive a first or second time for the coronavirus.
