Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: £100m-a-year in Scottish salmon exports 'lost because of Brexit'

Thursday, March 28, 2024

Brexit has cost Scotland up to £100 million-a-year in ‘lost’ salmon exports, MSPs will hear from trade body Salmon Scotland’s chief executive Tavish Scott today.

Farming companies have faced increased red tape and costs triggered by the departure from the EU in January 2020. In 2019, there were more than 53,000 tonnes of Scottish salmon exported to the bloc, with the figure falling to 44,000 tonnes in 2023.

IN BRIEF - The global bluefin tuna market is experiencing price declines

Wednesday, March 27, 2024

The global bluefin tuna market is experiencing lower prices amid weakening demand in Asia.
Wholesale prices for imported bluefin tuna in Japan have fallen significantly in recent months. The wholesale price of imported fresh bluefin tuna at Tokyo's Toyosu market has fallen 23% from its peak in August 2023, reaching US$24.4/kg. Similarly, the wholesale price of imported frozen bluefin tuna fell to US$22.3/kg, representing a decrease of almost US$6.6/kg from the December 2022 peak.
Data from the Japan Fisheries Information Center (JAFIC) indicates a decline in consumption of frozen bluefin tuna. This trend is reflected in retail prices: in February, chu-toro sashimi (medium-fat tuna) imported from Malta sold in Tokyo supermarkets for US$5.32 per 100 grams, a significant reduction from 40% compared to December 2022 prices.
Consumption of bluefin tuna sashimi has declined in major Asian markets, including Japan, South Korea and China. This is also reflected in the 50% year-on-year drop in the average import price of Maltese bluefin tuna fillets, a major producer in the Mediterranean, to US$13/kg. Some importers attribute the drop in prices to the weakening purchasing power of South Korea, traditionally a competitive buyer of Mediterranean tuna.

A row is brewing over plans for a new post-smolt facility in the north of Norway – which will involve blowing up two small islands to make space for the construction.
