Other Media | FishFarmer: Scottish salmon is named UK’s top food export for 2023

Friday, February 16, 2024

Scottish salmon was the UK’s top food export by value in 2023, figures from HMRC show.

Export sales for the calendar year totalled £581m, up by 5% year-or-year and equivalent to £1.6m every day.

France – which is a key processor for on-sale to other countries as well as a major consumer of salmon – once again led global demand.  The US and Asian markets saw sharp growth, however. Salmon exports by value to the US were up 7% to £139.8m and to China, up 27% to £47.5m.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Intense jellyfish attacks on SalMar’s Norwegian production dampen otherwise solid year

Friday, February 16, 2024

The fourth quarter of 2023 closed out a solid year’s performance for Frøya, Norway-headquartered SalMar, but the period also ended with several of the salmon producer’s facilities in central and northern Norway suffering from string jellyfish attacks.

With the attacks continuing to cause serious impacts to fish welfare into the new year, the company has culled substantial volumes at multiple locations and harvested much of its fish earlier than planned to avoid further issues.

€29.7M investment in Irish Fishery Harbours

Thursday, February 15, 2024

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue T.D, today announced the allocation of almost €29.7m for capital projects in 2024 in Ireland’s six state-owned Fishery Harbour Centres at Killybegs, Ros an Mhíl, An Daingean, Castletownbere, Dunmore East and Howth. An element of the investment also goes to other facilities under the Department’s management.

The Minister noted:

“The six Fishery Harbour Centres are crucial infrastructure for our seafood industry. Approximately 87% of all fish landings into Ireland come through these facilities making them strategic economic hubs for the Seafood industry. The continuous development of the infrastructure in these Harbours is critical to the fishing fleet and the land-based seafood processing industry. My focus remains on delivering strong sustainable livelihoods for our fishers and food producers who are the bedrock of the sector.”

The importance of primary and secondary food production activities is reflected in the Government’s “Food Vision 2030 A World Leader in Sustainable Food Systems”. First class landing infrastructure, where a modern seafood industry can operate effectively and be efficiently serviced is key to ensuring the maximum opportunities for primary and secondary processing of seafood in Ireland and provide for a strong Irish seafood processing industry to service our fishing fleet and others and maintain these coastal communities.
