Other Media | SeafoodSource: England institutes ban on sandeel fishing, with Scotland ready to follow

Thursday, February 08, 2024

U.K. policymakers and conservation groups have largely hailed a decision taken by the U.K. government to stop sandeel fishing in English North Sea waters, which will go into force from 1 April onward, as a much-needed boost for marine life.

Alongside the closure of sandeel fisheries, the government’s new plans – delivered around one year on from the launch of the U.K. Environmental Improvement Plan – will include further restrictions on bottom trawling and an enhanced framework regarding the nation’s national parks and protected areas.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Storms leave a trail of fish escapes

Thursday, February 08, 2024

Hundreds of salmon are thought to have escaped following Storm Ingunn which savaged the Norwegian coastline last week.

Storm Ingunn, which saw northern Norway battered by hurricane-level winds, was one of the worst incidents of its kind for many years. It forced the salmon industry to batten down the hatches for several days.

But the storm (shown above, as captured by NASA) also looks to have had further environmental consequences.

IN BRIEF - Permissible amount of marine hair crabs reduced by 30% as resources become 'low birthrate and aging population'

Wednesday, February 07, 2024

The permissible catch for hair crab cage fishing in the Sea of ??Okhotsk, which begins in March, has decreased by 31% from the previous year to 665 tons for both Soya jurisdiction in the north and Okhotsk jurisdiction in the south.

This is the second lowest amount on record after 2020 (454 tons), reflecting the severe resource situation due to the "low birthrate and aging population,'' with few newly added resources. The report was made during the general meeting of the Okhotsk Marine Crab Fishery Council held in Sapporo on the 2nd.

By area, the volume in the Soya area decreased by 38% to 530 tons, and in the Okhotsk area increased by 13% to 135 tons.The reduction in capacity in the Soya area, which had maintained a certain level until now, led to a drop in overall volume.

The allowable catch amount is set by the prefecture based on the results of a resource survey by Hokkaido Research Institute and in consultation with fishermen. According to a resource survey conducted by the Hokkaido Research Institute in the Sea of ??Okhotsk from April to July last year, the stock index of males with a carapace length of 7 cm or more, which is the target of this season's catch, has decreased by nearly 40% from the previous year, and the stock level has fallen below the previous year's level. This marked the first time in four years that the rate had changed from "average" to "low."

IN BRIEF - Nissui, highest operating profit of 26.4 billion yen

Wednesday, February 07, 2024

Consolidated April-December 2021 period: Food products continue to perform well, mainly in Japan

Nissui (President Shingo Hamada)'s consolidated financial results for the April-December period of 2023 show sales of 625,481 million yen, an 8.2% increase from the same period last year, and operating income of 26,355 million yen, an increase of 12.8%. Both achieved new record highs.

Food products continued to perform well, especially in Japan, resulting in significant increases in sales and profits. In the seafood industry, aquaculture in South America and processing in North America struggled due to the effects of the market decline, but in Japan, "signs of recovery are beginning to appear as we proceed with early disposal of unprofitable inventory'' (Nissui).

IN BRIEF - A strong month for trout

Wednesday, February 07, 2024

  • Norway exported 4,584 tonnes of trout worth NOK 439 million in January
  • The value increased by NOK 132 million, or 43 per cent, compared to January last year
  • There is a growth in volume of 49 per cent
  • The USA, Thailand and Ukraine were the biggest markets for trout in January

Ukraine had the most significant increase in value this month, with an increase in export value of NOK 42 million, or 264 per cent, compared to the same month last year.

The export volume to Ukraine ended at 682 tonnes, which is 177 per cent higher than the same month last year.

Some big swings

"Historically speaking, both trout production and exports have had significant fluctuations. There was a decrease in 2023, but it is now back at the 2022 level measured in volume. However, there has been a sharp turn in the product mix for trout. Fresh whole trout has increased its dominance compared to the other product types", says Paul T. Aandahl, Seafood Analyst with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Measured in terms of value, fresh whole trout accounted for 71 per cent of exports in January, compared to 57 per cent in the same month last year.

IN BRIEF - There is a decrease in volume but a growth in value for salmon

Wednesday, February 07, 2024

  • Norway exported 86,985 tonnes of salmon to a value of NOK 9.8 billion in January
  • The value increased by NOK 975 million, or 11 per cent, compared to January last year
  • The volume fell by 2 per cent
  • Poland, France and the USA were the biggest markets for salmon in January

Poland had the most significant increase in value this month, with an increase in export value of NOK 263 million, or 32 per cent, compared to last year.

The export volume to Poland ended at 11,400 tonnes, which is 26 per cent higher than the same month last year.

Price increase of 15 per cent

"The development in January follows the pattern from the last three years; a decrease in volume gives a more robust growth in price compared to the same period the previous year, and the result is an increase in value", says Paul T. Aandahl, Seafood Analyst with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

The average export price for fresh whole salmon in January was NOK 107.09 per kg. That is 15 per cent higher than in the same month last year.
