Other Media | FishFocus: Pioneering research method reveals bluefin tuna’s fate

Wednesday, December 06, 2023

The return of bluefin tuna to Northern European waters is a conservation success story, but rising sea temperatures in their Mediterranean nursery grounds mean this recovery may be short-lived, according to new research led by the University of Southampton.

Temperatures expected in the Mediterranean within the next 50 years are expected to drive juvenile tuna out of the Mediterranean, where they may be accidentally caught in existing sardine and anchovy fisheries — requiring fishery managers to adapt their methods to allow tuna nurseries to establish.

IN BRIEF - In Russia they propose to ban the production of canned fish

Tuesday, December 05, 2023

The Fish Union came up with a proposal to ban the production of canned fish according to technical specifications (TU), which are subject to GOST standards in the country.

These are, for example, sprats in oil or natural saury. This initiative was announced during an open meeting of representatives of Rosselkhoznadzor and the fishing community, which the publication “Veterinary and Life” organized at the site of the VII International Fishery Forum in St. Petersburg.

Sergei Gudkov, head of the consumer market development department of the Fish Union, began his speech with a problem: Russians eat little fish, and the level of its consumption is declining. According to the Fishing Union, fish consumption in Russia has decreased by 30% since 2013. “No other food product has undergone such critical changes, and we attribute this to two reasons,” said Sergei Gudkov. One of them is the increase in the cost of fish raw materials, which is higher than inflation, in contrast to meat and dairy products. But this is not the main reason for the sharp decline in fish consumption, the speaker noted. “We came to the conclusion that the reduction in consumption is most influenced by the quality of products,” said a representative of the union.

IN BRIEF - Oversea seafood buyers begin business trip in Japan

Tuesday, December 05, 2023

AOMORI – Fish wholesalers from the United States, Canada and Singapore started a business trip on Monday to four northeastern prefectures as the local fishing industry continues to reel from China's import ban on Japanese marine products.

The tour was organized by the government-linked Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) to help the country's fishery business operators find alternative buyers for their products.

The Chinese government has banned imports of Japanese marine products to protest against the release of treated water into the ocean from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in the Tohoku region.

The buyers from six companies, who are interested in scallops, yellowtail and sea urchin, observed an auction at a wholesale market in the city of Aomori on Monday morning.

Later, they inspected bluefin tuna caught off Aomori Prefecture and held a meeting with a local fishery wholesaler.

The wholesalers will, from Tuesday, visit fish markets and fishery business operators in the prefectures of Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima.

Other Media | FishFarmer: Sagging krone further boosts Norway’s salmon exports

Tuesday, December 05, 2023

Norway’s seafood exports for November totalled NOK 16.7 billion (£1.2bn), 17% up on November last year.

Again farmed salmon was the main driver in this seemingly never-ending overseas sales surge.

The decline in the value of the krone has been quite marked. Today it is worth NOK 13.7 against sterling compared with NOK 11.25 against March last year, its strongest point.
