Other Media | FishFocus: Seaweed worms could revolutionise fish farming diets

Friday, February 09, 2024

With the help of EMFF funding and a bit of Danish ingenuity, researchers are exploring innovative production techniques that could revolutionise aquaculture as we know it.

Today, fish fry production is based almost exclusively on rotifiers (microscopic, aquatic invertebrates) and Artemia (tiny crustaceans), which need to be enriched with fish oils or algae before use. This process is not only costly and time-consuming but the nutritional quality of these types of feed is not ideal.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Salmon company celebrates 50 year anniversary with factory opening

Friday, February 09, 2024

Last week’s storms – the worst in Norway for many years – appear to have sharply pushed up salmon prices.

The news was hardly surprising, with Storm Ingunn shutting down salmon farms in the north of Norway for several days. With roads closed and rail and sea transport at a standstill it was almost impossible to get any fish that had been harvested out of the area.

According to Statistics Norway, the average export price of fresh salmon in week five rose by 4.5% or NOK 4.7 to NOK 109.18 per kilo (£8.18), making it the second highest figure so far this year.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Four years on, Brexit continues to undermine segments of UK seafood industry

Friday, February 09, 2024

Supporters of the U.K.’s departure from the E.U. four years ago promised the dawn of a golden era for the fishing and seafood industry. Those operating in the sector hoped the move would offer more control over volumes caught and the people catching in U.K. waters, subsequently presenting more opportunities for growth, particularly in coastal communities. 

For those attempting to navigate the unique challenges Brexit has wrought on the U.K.'s seafood supply chain, that optimism has faded for many in the country’s seafood sector.

IN BRIEF - Rosselkhoznadzor experts recommend looking at the tail when choosing shrimp

Thursday, February 08, 2024

When choosing shrimp, it is important to pay attention to the condition of the crustacean’s tail, as well as the presence of antennae and limbs. Such recommendations on the choice of shrimp are given by experts from the Federal Center for Animal Health Protection (FSBI “ARRIAH” of Rosselkhoznadzor).

Shrimp are harvested both in Russia and abroad. Most often, buyers have to deal only with frozen foods. Therefore, the quality will depend on the transportation conditions, experts explain.

“When choosing peeled shrimp, you should try to examine or determine by touch whether there is frost in the package,” experts say. If there is frost, this is a sign that the product was outside the freezer for a long time during transportation. Of course, this is bad for the safety of the goods.

When buying peeled shrimp by weight, experts do not recommend buying those that are completely covered with an icy glaze.

“When choosing unpeeled shrimp, you need to evaluate their appearance. If the tail is not bent with a hook, the shrimp does not have antennae and limbs, it is better to refrain from purchasing,” note ARRIAH experts. Experts emphasize that heat treatment is not able to cope with poisons.

When purchasing canned crab, it is recommended to pay attention to the region where it was harvested. “It is highly likely that a product made in the Far East will be of higher quality. This is logical, because freshly caught crabs are processed 'on site', not frozen,” the experts explained.

IN BRIEF - 'Jan Maria' on the way to home port

Thursday, February 08, 2024

KATWIJK/BREMERHAVEN - The BX 792 'Jan Maria' will arrive in its home port of Bremerhaven next Monday. The brand new ship left the Tersan shipyard in Istanbul at the end of last week, exactly one year after the festive launch, and had already passed through the Strait of Gibraltar last Wednesday.

In Bremerhaven, a week and a half will be allocated to equipping the trawler and preparing it for fishing. There will be a naming ceremony in Bemerhaven in mid-April, but before then the BX 792 will have already completed a few fishing trips.

The 88 meter long and 18.3 meter wide 'Jan Maria' comes into service for the Nordbank Hochseefischerei GmbH, a German subsidiary of the Katwijkse Parlevliet & Van der Plas, and replaces the current ROS 786 'Gerda Maria' built in 1990. This old lady has made her last fishing trips, is currently also in Bremerhaven and is for sale. 

Just like the ROS 786, the new BX 792 will fish in high northern waters for cod, halibut and shrimp. The fish can be processed on board in various ways.
