Other Media | FishFocus: Whale faeces play important ecosystem role

Friday, March 17, 2023

In summer, 15,000 minke whales come to Svalbard to feed, and each one of them produces around 40 kilos of faeces per day. That makes 600 tonnes of whale poo in total.

It may sound disgusting, but for the ecosystem it is worth its weight in gold.

IN BRIEF - Oyster exports increased by more than 20%

Thursday, March 16, 2023

Oyster trade expanded strongly in the first half of 2022, mainly due to strong demand in the US market.

Some 35 000 tonnes were imported worldwide during this period, which is 5 000 tonnes more than in the same period of 2021. US imports increased by 23 percent, while Italy also reported a 24 percent expansion in imports.

France is the main exporter of oysters to the world market; these exports are mainly going to neighbouring countries such as Italy and Spain, but also to the United States of America. Oyster exports increased in the first half of 2022 to reach 7 000 tonnes, compared to 5 800 tonnes in the main period of 2021.

Oysters are generally consumed more in winter months, with a peak at Christmas. As such, prices during the summer months are not very indicative, although it is worth noting that there were price increases in Europe.
