Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Chinese owner of Australis is optimistic about the outlook for the Chilean salmon industry

Thursday, May 21, 2020

Chairman, Jie Tang, of Joyvio Agriculture Development, believes the worst of the pandemic is over. The best is now to come:

“The epidemic will eventually pass, and the domestic consumption upgrade trend will not change. This epidemic has tested the worst. We are fully prepared for this. In fact, our salmon products were sold during the outbreak in January this year. The situation is ideal, which strengthens our confidence,” said Tang Jie to Sina Finance.

The A-listed Chinese Company is the owner of the Chilean salmon farmer Australis Seafoods. Joyvio’s first-quarter results were affected, when the epidemic hit and took away the whole catering and restaurant segment.

IN BRIEF - Florida clam growers struggle as aquaculture industry reports $34M loss from Hurricane Idalia

Monday, October 02, 2023

RUSKIN, Fla. — At Two Docks Shellfishin Ruskin, clams are grown and then sold to restaurants, seafood markets, and distributors throughout the Tampa Bay Area, but lately, the shellfish farmers have been tight on supply.

“There just aren’t as many clams in the world as there should be right now due to those two storms, and that has a series of downstream effects, revenue, employment, and things like that,” said Dr. Aaron Welch, president of Two Docks Shellfish.

Last year, Welch said freshwater flooded the bay during Hurricane Ian, killing millions of clams. He added that the enormous storm surge following Hurricane Idalia the previous month wiped out millions more clams in hard-hit Cedar Key and he does business with clam growers there.

He says the combo of storms has prevented him from expanding his clam business as fast as he would like.

“It’s made it hard for us to continue to grow the business, and it’s hurt our revenue. Since we haven’t gotten our insurance payment from the USDA yet, we’re missing a huge amount of cash that we would be generating right now from selling the animals that died during Ian.”[...]

IN BRIEF - Japan's Fishery Exports to China Tumble 70.8 Pct in August

Monday, October 02, 2023

Tokyo (Jiji Press)--Japan's exports of fishery products to China in August dropped 70.8 pct from a year before in value, reflecting Chinese restrictions, the Finance Ministry said Thursday.

China imposed a blanket ban on Japanese aquatic products immediately after Japan began releasing treated water from its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant into the ocean on Aug. 24.

Scallop exports were particularly affected, falling 71.3 pct. Scallops represent the largest portion of Japan's fishery product exports, and about half of them goes to China.

Japan's overall food exports to China slipped 43 pct.

Exports of fishery products to Hong Kong, which has also tightened restrictions on imports from Japan, sagged 11 pct. Hong Kong is the second-largest importer of Japanese fishery products next to mainland China.
