Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Alert on the drag due to another offensive to veto it in marine protected areas

Thursday, April 18, 2024

Once again alarms are going off among bottom trawlers due to a new offensive that aims to expel them from marine protected areas (MPA). On the one hand, the NGOs Oceana, Seas at Risk and the Marine Conservation Society are once again demanding that at the end of this year it be banned in those areas "with ecologically important characteristics of the seabed" and in 2030, in all. Without deadlines, the lawsuit is signed for France by the NGO Bloom. On the other hand, the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) relativizes the consequences for trawlers.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Norwegian salmon prices hit new record

Thursday, April 18, 2024

Fresh salmon prices hit an all time record in Norway last week, although there are signs the surge could be over.

They soared to NOK 123.28 per kilo during week 15, an increase of NOK 3.34 per kilo or 2.2% on the previous week.

The official figures from Statistics Norway are generally an average so some fish could be higher while other smaller salmon may be below that level.

The trend continued upward, but later reports indicate prices are starting to come back down.

IN BRIEF - Dutch Group Dayseaday opens new building in Romania

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

STEFANESTI/URK – Fish wholesaler Dayseaday Group from the Van Veen family has opened its new branch in Romania.

The Van Veen family flew to Bucharest on Friday morning together with a delegation of Flynth accountants, a total of 42 people from Urk. We flew back again on Saturday.

At the opening, CEO Jelle van Veen said he was proud of his team and thanked manager Bogdan Manoliu, who is also a co-shareholder of Dayseaday Romania. “We have been able to realize a beautiful factory. The most modern in Romania, with a storage capacity of 2,500 pallets for freezing in two cells and several cold rooms. We also have a freezer for meat storage.”

In 2012, Dayseaday took over the (Dutch) fishing company Oceanis Seafood on the south side of Bucharest. Last year, work began on a new building measuring 100 by 30 meters on the northern ring road. What is new is that fresh packaging (MAP) is now also available for the retail market. The number of employees has grown to thirty. The production area measures 450 square meters. 

Most of the fish at Dayseaday Romania is imported and concerns farmed fish. Runners are sea bass, sea bream, salmon and farmed shrimps. Hake is the most important wild-caught species.

IN BRIEF - 'Squid' (Loligo vulgaris) is the most landed species by the Belgian fleet

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

OSTEND - The rising squid has replaced the more traditional fish species as the most landed fish species in Belgium.

The Flanders Statistics network reports this based on figures from the Agriculture & Sea Fisheries Agency. The total fish supply by Flemish sea fisheries fell by 6 percent to 15,921 tons.

Last year, 2,620 tons of squid were landed, 16 percent more than in 2022. Plaice (2,314 tons) and sole (2,260 tons) occupied places two and three. Rays and tub gurnard (Chelidonichthys lucerna) complete the top five supply. Shrimp and langoustines disappeared from the top ten of supply quantities.


Incidentally, for convenience, squid and cuttlefish appear to have been added together in the Belgian statistics. The leading role is reserved for the cheaper cuttlefish.

Sole is and remains by far the most important fish species for the Belgian trawl fleet, worth 39.4 million euros (44 percent of the total landing value). Last year, squid totaled 10.6 million euros, plaice for 7.3 million euros and monkfish for 5.7 million euros.

Last year, 3,700 tons of squid and 1,100 tons of cuttlefish were landed at the Dutch fish auctions. The plaice supply at the Dutch fish auctions was 12,000 tons.
