Other Media | SeafoodSource: No COVID-19 cases found on American Seafoods trawler in Alaska

Friday, June 19, 2020

Health officials in Alaska found no cases of COVID-19 aboard an American Seafoods trawler that recently arrived in Dutch Harbor to fish for Bering Sea pollock. The ship, the Ocean Rover, docked in the Unalaska port on Sunday, 14 June, where, according to a press release from the city, local health officials worked together with American Seafoods to screen and test crewmembers.

“In a coordinated effort between the IFHS Clinic, City of Unalaska, State of Alaska Health and Social Services, and American Seafoods, all 121 members on board responded to health questionnaires and were tested for COVID-19 as warranted. Sixteen crew members were found to have possible symptoms of COVID-19 and were quarantined pending test results. All tests returned negative. The Ocean Rover is offloading frozen product and will return to sea,” the press release read.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Beijing gives salmon covid all clear

Friday, June 19, 2020

SALMON is not the source of a new Covid-19 outbreak in Beijing, Chinese authorities have declared.

The announcement will come as a huge relief to fish farming companies in Scotland, Norway and the Faroe Islands who all export to China, because once a particular food or product becomes the subject of a scare the impact often goes far wider than the area in question.

The salmon scare blew up towards the end of last week after the Chinese capital reported a fresh spike in Coronavirus cases coupled with the discovery that a chopping board used to slice salmon at the city’s main Xinfadi wholesale food market might be the source of the infection.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Positive Barents Sea quota advice for 2021

Friday, June 19, 2020

ICES has issued its guidance for 2021 Barents Sea quotas, with increases for the three main stocks of cod, haddock and saithe north of 62°N.

According to Audun Maråk, director of Norwegian vessel owners’ federation Fiskebåt, these stocks are all in good condition and harvested sustainably.

‘Despite a difficult market situation, it is highly positive that the most important white fish stocks north of 62°N are harvested sustainably and with increased quota recommendations. Increased quotas will contribute positively to activity and value creation along the coast,’ he said.

The ICES advice for north-east Arctic cod is for an 885,000 tonne quota, with the increase over last year’s figure limited by the stability regulation that allows a variation of no more than 20% from one year to the next.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Vonin moorings and nets for high-energy sites

Thursday, June 18, 2020

With high-energy aquaculture sites to oversee in Scotland’s Western Isles, Mowi Regional Seawater Manager Kris Laird wanted to see for himself how Faroese Fish Farmers operate in highly exposed environments that regularly withstand exceptional hostile conditions.

Early last year he arranged a trip with some Mowi colleagues from Scotland to the Faroe Islands, visiting key suppliers to the Faroese aquaculture sector and to see how fish farms operate under the tough conditions around the islands, with year-round strong currents and wild weather that is a feature of the Faroese winter months.

Mowi subsequently chose Vónin to be a preferred supplier of moorings and nets, with JT Electric and KJ Hydraulic also supplying equipment to a number of sites in Scotland.

Other Media | EuropaAzul: Difficult governance of China's long-distance fleet worries the fishing world

Thursday, June 18, 2020

The latest report from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) presents the large scale that the Chinese long-distance fleet DWF has acquired alongside gaps and challenges in China's governance capacity. Experts using specific examples review the findings and implications of this key fleet in West Africa

A recently released report by the London-based research center (ODI) highlights problems of scale and governance of the long-distance fleet. The authors analyzed data from 2017 and 2018 using big data analytical techniques, ensemble algorithms, and geographic information systems (GIS). Some of its key findings are that China's DWF fleet could be much larger than the estimated 3,000 ships, with a significant percentage marked out to other countries, primarily African nations.

Other Media | Aquaculture iPac: Skretting launches the first of its AquaCare concept products to improve water quality in aquaculture

Thursday, June 18, 2020

Skretting has expanded its scope of activity beyond the food supply. It has done so with a new line of products, AquaCare, specifically focused on offering practical solutions to improve water quality in fish and shrimp farming systems. “In certain regions, aquaculture faces an increasing challenge in terms of access to clean and safe water. Thus, the AquaCare concept was born as an essential part of our commitment to improve the sustainability of the industry, ”says Skretting. And, as you recall, water is a vital resource that faces increasing demand and a changing climate. The data is there. According to the United Nations, in the last 100 years the world demand for water has multiplied by six, "with which - added the same sources - the responsible administration of water has become a global priority".

Other Media | SeafoodSource: WTO talks on curbing fishing subsidies may restart in July

Thursday, June 18, 2020

There are some signs that talks at the World Trade Organization on ending harmful fishery subsidies may restart next month after being suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

A Heads of Delegation meeting has been announced by the negotiations chair for 25 June to begin discussing the latest draft proposal for a deal. A follow-up meeting for delegation leaders on 21 July will set a potential Autumn work program for negotiators.

“We’re basically waiting for the WTO to fully open up again,” a Western delegate to the talks told SeafoodSource. “They’ve taken the first step, setting up a big room for meetings with one person per delegation, but that won’t work for the fisheries negotiations. I’ve heard speculation that maybe we start meetings [of regular delegation members] again in July. There’s some work being done behind the scenes, but my sense is that it’s somewhat limited.”
