IN BRIEF - Slaughter: 55% of the toothfish brought by the Tai An are juveniles

Friday, March 22, 2024

The vessel not only carried out illegal fishing of a species for which it did not have a quota, but also carried out fishing aimed at juveniles, violating all regulations and with the knowledge of the fishing authority.
It was decided that Prodesur will not be able to export this merchandise because it would involve Argentina in an international illegal fishing scandal with serious consequences.
The fishing authorities are aware that the Tai An ship was in flagrant violation of the Fisheries Law, at least since March 8 when the companies reported it. Today, when the case has become public and everyone already knows that of the 163 tons of toothfish, more than half are made up of juveniles and that it could become a scandal at the international level, the Undersecretary of Fisheries, Juan Manuel López Cazorla, He says that “the full weight of the law” will fall on him. The inspection of the discharge will continue today; The lawyers have not yet defined the sanction, but it has already been defined that, for the moment, the ship will not be able to leave again and that Prodesur will not be able to export the merchandise, which will be destroyed or auctioned.[...]

IN BRIEF - 'Ginka Gin' Coho salmon will arrive for the first time on the 28th

Friday, March 22, 2024

The general meeting was held at the Ishinomaki fish market 25 days later than last year, as sea water temperatures rise.

The "2024 Farmed Coho Salmon General Acceptance Meeting" of the Raw Fishing and Fishing Boat Attraction Promotion Committee of Ishinomaki City was held at the Ishinomaki Fish Market on the 19th. Ishinomaki coho salmon is a fish in high demand under the brand "Kinka Gin", but the harvest has been delayed this season due to growth delays due to rising seawater temperatures. At the meeting it was decided that the shipment would arrive on the 28th, 25 days later than the previous year.

The delay in the start of sales is due to the fact that the work of placing fry, which are sensitive to heat, in cages has been delayed between three and four weeks compared to usual due to the increase in sea water temperature . Another contributing factor was that the young fish were not eating enough food and were not growing.

The value of farmed coho salmon landed at the Ishinomaki fish market last year was 4,446.75 million yen. This season's arrival is expected to be 5,000 to 5,200 tonnes, down from last year's 5,900 tonnes. On the 28th, when the first shipment arrives, it is planned to handle between 2.5 and 3 tons from Bunmaru Suisan (Ayukawahama, Ishinomaki city).

IN BRIEF - Unprecedented giant squid marking project, led by IFOP and GEF Humboldt II project, in the Coquimbo Region

Friday, March 22, 2024

Within the framework of the execution of the Biological Study Program of giant squid (dosidicus gigas) in Chile (GEF Humboldt II - IFOP), between March 13 and 17, the marking activity of squid specimens was carried out on the coasts of the Coquimbo Region , in the port of Guanaqueros.
The general objective of the Program is to establish a biological study program of the giant squid "jibia" in Chile in sectors outside the fishery, with emphasis on renewal and growth rates, complementary to the studies carried out in the monitoring project.
Among the different specific objectives is the study of migratory patterns of the giant squid through a mark and recapture study. In this context, 50 giant squid were marked with spaghetti-type external marks and two squid marked with satellite transmitters. The relevance of this activity lies in obtaining information on the distribution of the squid in situ, such as the horizontal and vertical migration that this cephalopod carries out on our coasts.
The first results obtained from the satellite transmitters are expected in the next 15 and 30 days. If positive results are obtained, this would be the first successful experience in our country in relation to the marking of these animals.
The team that worked on the shipments is: MSc. Karen Belmar Salinas (Project Manager), Dr. Patricia Zarate (Researcher) and José Durán, Semi-senior scientific observer.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Norwegian salmon prices flat as Easter approaches

Friday, March 22, 2024

The price of fresh salmon in Norway has fallen for the fourth consecutive week and is now at its lowest point since the end of January.

According to Statistics Norway, which monitors prices in a regular basis, the fresh variety was down to NOK 106.19 per kilo (£7.88) last week (week 11).

Just a month ago, export fish was selling at NOK 111.25 a kilo (£8.26) with predictions that it would go higher as Easter approached. It now appears that, unless there is a late surge over the next few days, it looks as if there will be no Easter bounce this year.
