IN BRIEF - The tuna season starts with a new record: 370 euros per kilo

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

The Cantabrian tuna coast has begun. And it did so this morning, at 06:30, with the start of the auction at a record price, 370 euros per kilo for the first tub of specimens caught with a hook (troll) in waters close to the Azores Islands. The first tub, weighing one hundred kilos, has been fished by the Gaztelugatxe Doniene, whose skipper and owner is Iñigo Oronoz.

As is almost tradition, the buyer of the so-called “campanu del mar”, which is how the first tuna along the coast is known, has been the Alimerka supermarket chain. Armando Prendes, head of the Alimerka fishmongers, stressed that his company "continues the tradition of supporting the primary sector and (this year, like last) at a record price." As usual, the chain will donate the first tub to charities in Oviedo, Gijón and Mieres and will sell the rest of the fish in its stores throughout the region: "Tomorrow it will be in all stores at a price yet to be defined We hope to have bonito this week and that all stores have it on their counters”.

IN BRIEF - Scottish salmon sees further surge in demand

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Scottish salmon exports are enjoying a boom in popularity in Asia markets where sales have doubled, new HM Revenue and Customs figures show.

Sales to the European Union have held up, while North America has also seen a surge in demand.

North America and Asia accounted for nearly half (47%) of all sales in the first three months of this year, driven by strong demand from China, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea. The value of exports to Asia has soared by £12 million, to £24m.

Trade body Salmon Scotland said the figures show that farm-raised salmon “generates vital income for the country”.

It comes amid a backlash to Scottish Government plans to introduce Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMAs) which the industry warns will threaten jobs and investment.

Salmon farmers are also calling for an overhaul of the cluttered regulatory and planning system, and for more of the revenue from licence fees to be ring-fenced for rural housing.

Farm-raised salmon directly employs 2,500 people in Scotland and a further 10,000 jobs are dependent on the sector.

IN BRIEF - Research in Seychelles' aquaculture potential shows optimistic results

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Aquaculture in Seychelles is on the path to becoming a strong sector in the island state's Blue Economy, according to a fisheries official.

Over the past year, several research has been undertaken to highlight constraints, challenges as well as opportunities in the sector. 

In 2019, the opening of a broodstock, acclimation and quarantine facility at the Providence Fishing Port on the main island of Mahe marked the official opening of aquaculture as an industry and became the central research facility.

The head of the Aquaculture Department at the Seychelles Fishing Authority, (SFA), Aubrey Lesperance, said research in the aquaculture sector plays a vital role in ensuring that all necessary research work is conducted and reported on to be able to provide insight for investors with necessary information based on their interest in the aquaculture sector.   

"We have conducted research on different marine species, mainly the pompano, the mangrove snapper, as well as the spanner and mud crabs. We also undertook several analyses on nutrient and algae cultivation," explained Lesperance. 

He added that a very successful trial for the grow-out of mangrove snapper has been conducted and that "the information for this trial has been collated as a journal article.  To ensure that the results can easily be applied in a commercial aquaculture setting, a Windows-based application was developed."

IN BRIEF - Stock assessments show Maritime lobster population strong, fishery sustainable

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Lobster populations off all three Maritime provinces remain strong and the $1.7-billion fishery is sustainable, according to the latest assessments from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO).

It's good news for coastal communities, but warming ocean temperatures caused by climate change is a potential cloud on the horizon.

Adam Cook is a DFO biologist who tracks lobster populations along the Scotian Shelf and Bay of Fundy — waters that support nearly 3,000 commercial licence holders in 12 lobster fishing areas (LFAs).

Cook and his colleagues recently posted stock assessments for 2022. He said all LFAs in the Maritimes are in a healthy zone for stock status.

"Which suggests there's still enough lobster to not raise any sort of conservation concerns. The commercial biomass is doing quite well," Cook said.

It's the same story in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence, although DFO's stock assessments for five fishings area in that region have not been posted.

Other Media | SalmonExpert: Salmon farmers ask the authority to regulate aquaculture on the high seas

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

Over the next few months, the long-awaited talks announced by the Government are expected to begin, in order to develop a new Aquaculture Law, separating it from the Fisheries area.

The current Chilean legislation does not consider a specific regulation for the operation of aquaculture on the high seas, therefore, in practice salmon farming centers operate on the AAA (areas suitable for aquaculture) that already exist and it is necessary that the concession of aquaculture has been previously granted, since today access to new concessions is closed, in the regions of Los Lagos and Aysén since 2020 and in Magallanes since 2016.
