There is a lot of outdated information still in circulation about feed, but the industry, and Skretting, has made huge breakthroughs along the way. One of Skretting’s ambitions is to make sure that we are transparent and accountable in what we do, so that consumers can feel secure in buying and eating farmed fish and shrimp.
Why the ‘Feed iceberg’?
In the same way that 90% of an iceberg is hidden below the waterline, almost all the value of feed is not visible to the naked eye. We want to change that.

New Zealanders doing the hard mahi to ensure the sustainability of our fisheries and aquaculture should put their hands up for the Seafood Sustainability Awards, says Dan Bolger, deputy director-general Fisheries New Zealand.
The Seafood Sustainability Awards are a chance to recognise outstanding contributions to sustainability right across the seafood sector. Entries open from 28 February 2023.
A panel of independent judges, representing different parts of the seafood sector will select finalists and winners across 7 categories: Operational Innovator, Market Innovator, Future Leader, Ocean Guardian, and Tangata Tiaki/Kaitiaki. The winner of the Supreme Sustainability Award will be selected from winners across these categories.
In addition, a winner will be selected for the Minister for Oceans and Fisheries Award to recognise long-term contributions to sustainability in the seafood sector. NIWA’s former chief fisheries scientist, Rosemary Hurst, won this category in 2020 and will be chairing this year’s judging panel.
Fresh catches of Far Eastern fish are sent to the domestic market without delay for storage in seaports
By February 27, the total load of refrigerators for the storage of fish products in the Primorsky Territory is 35%. The fish terminals contain 45.7 thousand tons of fish products obtained by the Far Eastern fishing enterprises. A week earlier, the level of utilization of refrigeration capacities was 38%.
The constant availability of free refrigeration capacities for round-the-clock reception of any volume of fish products is ensured due to the dynamic and continuous operation of the seaport complex of Primorsky Krai.
According to the industry monitoring system, at present, 30 vessels with 42.4 thousand tons of fish products on board are on their way to the ports of Primorye, mainly fresh-frozen catches of pollock, herring and cod.
Strengthening the longstanding seafood ties that exist between Norway and the United Kingdom can help many commercial players and the wider value chain weather the severe headwinds that they’re continuing to face, Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) CEO Christian Chramer said at the 2023 edition of the annual Norway-UK Seafood Summit, held in London’s Fishmongers’ Hall on 27 February.
Collectively, these and other challenges are leading to crises in key seafood markets, Chramer said. At a consumer level, there’s both a decrease in purchasing power and growing competition from other protein sources and food sectors.

The Xunta will meet the Galician Fisheries Council to analyze the action plan with which Brussels seeks to veto trawling in 30% of community waters
his meeting will take place in the coming days and in it Galicia will draw up a defense roadmap for the Galician fleet in the face of these disproportionate restrictions that disregard the maritime-fishing reality
Antonio Basanta stressed that the Galician Executive will continue to demand justice for the fleet and will reinforce work through diplomatic and judicial channels, as it is doing with the veto on bottom fishing in 87 areas of community waters
He underlines that the European Commission's review of the Common Fisheries Policy lacks self-criticism and solutions to issues such as fishing discards and that it does not propose measures in the strategy for the energy transition of the fishing sector either.
