Other Media | The Fish Site: Crawfish aquaculture: a season in review

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

In the first installment of a new monthly column for The Fish Site, Professor Greg Lutz looks at how Louisiana’s crawfish farmers are faring in an extraordinary year for the sector.

This time of year, farmed crawfish season is winding down and mature animals that weren’t harvested before season’s end are already down in their burrows – hovering above tiny pools of water in sealed chambers and dreaming of eventual re-emergence in the fall, when producers re-flood their ponds to kick off the next season. For the crawfish, it’s a pretty straightforward, uncomplicated plan. One that Mother Nature has perfected over the past 200 million years.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Denmark fears further reductions in cod fishing that will make this sector unfeasible

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Large reductions in quotas for cod and other key species present major challenges for the Danish fishing industry next year, according to the president of the Danish Fishermen's Association, Svend-Erik Andersen. The fishermen's representative claims that ‘with these Danish fishing quotas, there is a possibility of a financial storm in the coming year. Danish fisheries will be strongly affected financially with quota reductions, especially for cod in all waters, "said Svend-Erik Andersen, President of the Danish Fishermen's Association.

The expectation is that the Danish fishing industry will be under financial pressure next year, with quota reductions in cod in the North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat and in the Baltic Sea, where heavy losses in turnover are forecast for the industry every quarter.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: If we do not get permission to operate a salmon farm on an oil rig in Norwegian sea, we need to look for other waters
