Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Cherry salmon proves fruitful for Japanese fish farmer

Friday, June 14, 2024

Izumisawa Suisan is first to obtain ASC certification for the species

Japanese farm Izumisawa Suisan has become the first commercial farm to obtain Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification for its cherry salmon production. The farm, which also produces coho salmon, is based in Kamaishi City in Iwate Prefecture along the Kamaishi Bay.

Cherry salmon, named for its pink cherry-coloured scales, boasts a refined, light flesh colour and delicate fat. Its name is derived from the fact that it is often harvested during the enchanting “sakura” or cherry blossom season in Japan.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: China tapping Pakistan as alternative seafood supply source

Friday, June 14, 2024

China is tapping into Pakistan as an alternative seafood supplier, with tensions ramping up between it and its primary trading partners.

On 1 June, an air shipment of fresh mullet from Pakistan arrived in Kashgar, a city in China’s Xinjiang region, according to China Daily. The mullet was imported by Xinjiang Huizhou Import and Export Trading Co., which distributes seafood out of the Kashgar Comprehensive Bonded Zone Cross-border e-Commerce Exhibition and Trading Center. The facility, which was opened in late 2023, is being touted by local officials as “Central Asia’s fresh and cold chain food import portal,” offering access to China’s westernmost region.

Other Media | The Fishing Daily: Russian Competition Drives Down Prices for Norwegian King Crab

Thursday, June 13, 2024

Several factors have led to a nearly halving of prices for both fishermen and exporters in a short period of time. Fishermen are currently experiencing significantly lower kilo prices for king crab in June compared to May.

One key factor is the availability of blue crab from Russia in the market. Live blue crab is being delivered at a significantly different price than the red king crab from Norway. Additionally, Russia has announced an earlier start to king crab fishing in the Barents Sea, moving the start date from 01 September to 01 July. This introduces a new player during a time when Norwegian actors have traditionally operated alone, further driving down prices on the global market.

IN BRIEF - Japan-Asia routes are fully booked for the next month.

Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Priority was given to high-cost cargo from China and other countries, and cuts in service

Space shortages are becoming serious on Japan-Asia routes. Although it depends on the shipping company and route, according to people involved, bookings cannot be made until mid-July, about a month from now. It seems that the reduction in allocations for Japanese cargo is having an impact, with high-cost cargo from China and other sources being given priority. 

Some shipping companies are considering reducing the number of intra-regional routes to and from Japan to redirect ships to routes to and from China and other core routes that are also expected to be highly profitable.

IN BRIEF - Vinh Hoan adds a 5,000-ton pangasius surimi production line

Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Vietnam's largest pangasius exporter, Vinh Hoan, has invested in surimi production, including block surimi and crab sticks.

After adding a surimi raw material production line at the factory in Cao Lanh City, Dong Thap Province in 2023, the company has an annual processing capacity of 5,000 tons.

This activity is part of a strategy that strives to fully optimize the company's Pangasius value chain.

Surimi products, both raw materials and finished products, are ASC-certified.

Vinh Hoan's pangasius surimi block is packaged in 10 kg boxes with many different grades depending on the gel level such as 500-700 and 1,000 or more.

Meanwhile, the company has just launched an instant surimi noodle product called "Protein Pho Fusion". The main market includes the Asian community in the US, Europe, and Asian countries.

With noodle products that come with steamed pangasius meat and white-leg shrimp, Vinh Hoan hopes to capture the needs of health-conscious consumers.

Lucky Bag, another new surimi-based product from the company, won the Innovation Award at the 2024 Global Seafood Expo.
