Other Media | iLasks.no: Color Line inserts 'SuperSpeed 1' as pure cargo ship for salmon

Friday, March 27, 2020

"Superspeed 1" was taken off the regular route on March 16, as a result of government action to deal with the coronavirus. Now the car ferry will be used to transport both fresh and frozen fish between Kristiansand and Hirtshals.

"Superspeed 1" was supposed to have undergone an ordinary dock stay in Denmark, but due to the COVID-19 situation lay at the quay in Kristiandsand, Color Line said in a press release.

Now the ship will be transporting goods, including fish. The authorities in countries in Europe make exceptions to the entry and quarantine rules for the carriage of goods.

- On all Color Lines routes we ship a lot of thermo trucks, as well as containers and tanks. All of our ships have facilities that allow us to plug in the thermocouples of electricity through the crossing. We generally have great demand from carriers that transport fish, both fresh and frozen. The reopening of the Kristiansand route to Hirtshals is important for Norwegian fish exports. Over the past 24 hours we have experienced positive feedback from the transport industry, which is confirmed by high activity with the booking of seats, writes CEO Trond Kleivdal in an e-mail to iLaks.

Other Media | IndustriasPesqueras: Ireland stresses with the EU the importance of maintaining the single market and free movement for fisheries

Friday, March 27, 2020

The Minister of Agriculture, Food and Navy of the Republic of Ireland, Michael Creed, yesterday urged the European Commission to deploy "the full range of available supports" to ensure that the agri-food and fisheries sectors can "better meet the needs of society "During the Covid-19 crisis with the least possible economic impact."
In addition to the measures that he already moved last week, the minister stressed the need to maintain the integrity of the single market throughout the response to this health crisis, "for example, by ensuring that border controls do not unnecessarily interrupt the free movement of goods or labor in the EU ”. This is "particularly important to guarantee the continuous effective operation of agrifood supply chains".
Creed assured that “the key priority for all of us is to take the necessary measures to ensure that producers and processors can continue to operate effectively, that supply lines are kept open, that we continue to feed people and that the economic impact in the agri-food and fishing sectors. In this way, we can ensure that these sectors can not only survive, but also contribute enormously to facing the pandemic. ”

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Demand for land-based grown salmon grows in UAE

Friday, March 27, 2020

“Food security. We have gone from talk and the hypothetical to a real issue in a matter of weeks”.

Salmon is struggling to get into UAE. During normal times, 92 per cent of all the fish are imported. This puts the oil-rich Middle Eastern country in a serious predicament.

But for Fish Farm, which has an inland farming facility in Jebel Ali – a short drive outside Dubai, business is booming. SalmonBusiness was one of the first to report that it had successfully grown the UAE’s first-ever salmon harvest last year.

The farm is built in an existing building, and the fish are bred in a controlled environment in a recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) – all from AKVA group.

“Through the roof”

It sells 1.5 to 2 tonnes of salmon a week. The fish are sold on an exclusivity arrangement with Middle East retail chain Spinneys – who themselves have a licensing concession with Waitrose.

“Sales have gone through the roof, we have done really well,” said Fish Farm’s Business Development Manager Edmund Broad to SalmonBusiness.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: A score of purse seine boats have already decided to moor

Thursday, March 26, 2020

El Muro lived its second day without face-to-face auctions, selling fish via telephone and online. These restrictions are intended to keep social distance to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Despite these changes in the fish market,  after "tens of years of auctions", the measures were unanimously accepted, although with some complaints: "We are seeing how some auctioneers who also have fish shops take the best pieces and the best quality», since they are the first to enter to mark the fish of their orders, several sellers said.

They also say that "buying the product after seeing it is not the same as doing this without knowing how it is, but well, we know that all the fish and seafood that reaches the fish market is the best in the world."

What it is really in free fall are prices, "especially of those species that are not high-quality, lije horse mackerel, mackerel, blue whiting," indicate the auctioneers.

In fact, yesterday 19 000 kilos of horse mackerel were put up for sale, captured that day by the purse seiners and trawlers. Its value did not exceed 0.55 euros per kilo, and "dropped to 0.25," said a sailor who works on a Malpica ship.

The same thing happened with mackerel. The 1000 kilos that reached the fish market were sold between 0.50 and 0.75 euros per kilo.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Planas reminds the EU that the announced measures are not enough and urges to modify the FEMP

Thursday, March 26, 2020

EU Fisheries Ministers meet by video conference
Spain has defended before the member states the need for Brussels to articulate an "urgent and solid response" to the problems facing the fishing sector due to the spread of Covid-19. The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, in a high-level video conference with the EU's fisheries ministers, indicated that all efforts should be aimed at preventing the deterioration of the structure of the sector. For this, he insisted, the FEMP has to be modified.
Planas appreciates the "quick response" given by the Commission, although he believes that the announced measures are not sufficient. DG Mare gave the green light a few days ago to an increase in de minimis aid, which is still state aid. The sector has indicated to IP that these aids depend on the General State Budgets, not yet approved.
Along the same lines, Planas reminded the MS that the solution to this crisis "does not lie solely in the activation of state aid." That is why he asked Brussels "for a clear commitment, in line with what was expressed by the EC at the last meeting of the European Parliament's Committee on Fisheries."

Other Media | FiskerForum: Cornwall's rekindled love for fresh fish

Thursday, March 26, 2020

Seafood Cornwall’s #FishToYourDoor campaign, which was launched within hours of the first Covid-19 impacts on South-West fish markets, has seen overwhelming response within first week.

The new campaign that facilitates quick match-making between Cornish fish merchants and fishmongers and would-be buyers across the country has been inundated with orders since launching last week.

Cornwall-wide seafood promotion initiative Seafood Cornwall launched the #FishToYourDoor campaign alongside the Cornish Fish Producers’ Organisation on 17th March.

Responding to the closing-down of restaurant trade and export markets, and aiming to keep sales routes open for domestic catch, the scheme was designed to connect individuals and households with fresh Cornish fish – via fish merchants with capacity to deliver.

‘Thanks to the #FishToYourDoor initiative, plus our own efforts, we have kept the doors open. We are delivering fish individually portioned, prepped and packed, and calling our customers to notify them that their contact-free delivery is on their doorstep,’ said Naomi Bullus of family-run business Celtic Fish & Game, one of the companies participating in the scheme.

‘I’m delighted to see a scheme like this come together so quickly in the face of all the troubling impacts of this Covid-19 pandemic,’ commented local MP Derek Thomas.

Other Media | The Fish Site:SSPO update on steps salmon farming sector is taking to stay open

Thursday, March 26, 2020

The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation has issued a statement outlining their strategies to balance safety, public health and customer needs.

Hamish Macdonell, Director of Strategic Engagement for SSPO, said:

“The critical focus is public health and protecting our workers as they continue to farm our salmon. It is also important to maintain the supply of fresh salmon to UK consumers. Advice from Government highlights key steps that must be taken to help ensure that companies can stay open. Salmon farming companies are adapting their ways of working.

All workers who can work from home do so.
Social distancing is imperative at every workplace from farms to processing. This is more challenging and changes will be required.
Everyone working on farms and throughout the supply chain is being provided with appropriate safety and hygiene protection and guidance.
SSPO is also recommending that companies draw up a full list of measures for everyone to adhere to.
All steps taken to protect workers must be demonstrable
