IN BRIEF - Nordic Aqua Partners - Operational Update

Saturday, July 06, 2024

Nordic Aqua, a global pioneer in land-based salmon farming, with its first farm located in China, announces the production result from its first operational quarter.


  • Total harvest volume in second quarter of 523 tonnes HOG

“We are pleased about the highly sustainable biology, the low mortality and the large share of superior quality. The production in the quarter was good, however somewhat affected by starving and handling related to harvesting,”, says Ragnar Joensen, CEO.

This corresponds to a volume of 2.300 – 2.500 MT in the second half of 2024, which per se is somewhat higher than the annual normalised capacity of 4.000 MT for Stage 1.

IN BRIEF - Argentine red shrimp: Another Chinese seafood company banned from exporting to the U.S.

Friday, July 05, 2024

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has added another major Chinese seafood processor to the list of companies banned from exporting products to the U.S. due to forced labor issues, while also closing the door on Argentina's main source of processed red shrimp.

DHS has added Shandong Meijia Group Co., Ltd. (also known as Rizhao Meijia Group) to the list of seafood export bans to the United States under the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).

Two of the Shandong Meijia Group's affiliated members – Rizhao Meijia Aquatic Foodstuff Co. and Rizhao Meijia Keyuan Food Co. – are active exporters of Argentine red shrimp to customers in the U.S. and Canada.

Robert Silvers, Chairman of the Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force (FLETF) under DHS, said the United States is taking concrete steps to eliminate goods produced with forced labor from its supply chains.

Last year, the U.S. imported 31.5 million pounds of Argentine red shrimp, down from 38.2 million pounds in 2020.

According to the Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA), 12 million pounds (32%) of Argentine red shrimp imported into the U.S. are processed in China, although still labeled as Argentine. Since January 2023, more than 265 containers of Argentine shrimp have been shipped to the U.S. by Chinese exporters.

IN BRIEF - Fisherman Convicted for Exceeding Quota and Under-Recording Nephrops

Friday, July 05, 2024

Man Convicted of Sea-Fisheries Offences for Exceeding Quota and Under-Recording Catches

Gerald Sharkey, from Clogherhead, County Louth, pleaded guilty at Dundalk Circuit Court on July 2, 2024, to charges related to exceeding the quota and under-recording catches of Nephrops (prawns) in Functional Unit (FU) 16 during a fishing trip in June 2017. The court imposed fines totaling €20,000 for both offenses and ordered the forfeiture of €10,000 from the value of the catch.

The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA) inspected the fishing vessel Saint Catherine Laboure in May and June 2017, revealing discrepancies in recorded catch volumes. Despite spending a significant amount of time fishing in FU 16, the logbooks showed lower volumes of catches from this area, with larger quantities recorded from outside the area. The court heard that Nephrops from FU 16 are subject to stricter quotas and have a higher monetary value. It was alleged that catches were taken from FU 16 but recorded as being from another fishing area, exceeding the catch limit by approximately 200%.
