IN BRIEF - Japan's Fishery Exports to China Plunge 23 Pct in July

Friday, September 08, 2023

Tokyo, (Jiji Press)--Japan's exports of fishery products to China plunged 23.2 pct from a year earlier to 7.7 billion yen in July, government data showed Tuesday.

The sharp drop came as China tightened quarantine controls on aquatic and other products from Japan in July, ahead of the start of the release into the sea of treated water containing radioactive tritium from Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.'s crippled Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant.

By category, exports to China dropped 40 pct for scallops and 60 pct for tuna and bonito.

Fishery exports to China are feared to shrink further after China imposed a blanket ban on imports of aquatic products from Japan following the start late last month of the treated water release.

The Japanese government is rushing to reduce the domestic fishery industry's dependence on the Chinese market. On Monday, it unveiled a package of measures to help producers of scallops and other items develop new sales channels and strengthen domestic processing capabilities.

IN BRIEF - 46 escaped aquaculture salmon found in New Brunswick river

Friday, September 08, 2023

The Atlantic Salmon Federation wants answers after removing 46 escaped aquaculture salmon from the Magaguadavic River in New Brunswick since Aug. 1.

Farmed fish pose a serious threat to wild Atlantic salmon in the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of Maine, the organization said. The two types of fish have significant genetic differences, and with spawning season nearing it is of particular concern. The breeding of farmed fish with wild salmon can result in weaker wild stock.

“We have reported our discoveries to officials in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, but we haven’t received any information about what, if anything, they are doing to protect wild salmon from these escapes,” said Jonathan Carr, ASF’s vice president of research and environment.[...]

EN BREVE - El arrastrero Nordan regresa a casa

Friday, September 08, 2023

The trawler Nordan was bought at a time when many shipowners are struggling financially.

Tens of millions of NOK have been invested in the vessel. And the owner has connected skilled fishermen as chairman and general manager. The 33.75 meter long trawler is now in the middle of Skagerrak, and as it appears on AIS, has started trawling in the middle of Skagerrak.

Currently, the trawler Nordan is equipped with rights that give it the opportunity to fish for blue whiting and shrimp. The rights give the opportunity to fish 175 tonnes of lue whiting south of the 62nd parallel and eight tonnes of prawns per quarter. There is reason to believe that the trawler will be granted more rights in due course.

Changed name to Nordan Fiskeri AS

It was RH Fiskeri AS in Kristiansand that bought the Danish trawler "Borkumrif" earlier this year. In June, the shipping company changed its name to Nordan Fiskeri AS and then moved its address to Lindesnes. At the same time as the change of address, the well-known southern fishermen Edvard August Fjeldskår Reidar Svendsen at Lindesnes have respectively become chairman of the board and general manager of the shipping company.

IN BRIEF - The Norwegian Seafood Council restructures

Friday, September 08, 2023

After almost a year in the chief's chair, managing director Christian Chramer is making changes to the way the Seafood Council is organised.

"We always strive for improvements and want to accommodate the feedback we receive from the industry. One of these points has been to make it even clearer who is the contact point for industry-specific questions and who leads and coordinates processes internally", explains Christian Chramer in a press release.

The changes came into force at the beginning of September. They will help ensure a better dialogue between the Seafood Council's units and coordinate internal and external processes.

"There has probably been a perception that it has been too complicated to get in touch with the right people with us when it comes to species-specific questions", says Chramer.

The new roles do not have budget or personnel responsibility. They are linked to the Seafood Council's department for Global Operations, which is headed by Børge Grønbech. [...]

Other Media | SalmonExpert: New proposal for the reorganization of Nova Austral includes its sale

Friday, September 08, 2023

The Nova Austral Creditors' Meeting, which was to be held yesterday, was suspended, and precisely the salmon farmer presented a new proposal for the Judicial Reorganization Agreement, so that this time it would be accepted by the bondholders and the banks -after the existing disagreements between the parts-, in a 58-page brief.

Thus, the purpose of the proposal –in general terms– is the restructuring of the total debt of the company through the granting of new conditions for the payment of the rest of the credits subject to the Reorganization Agreement and the search for investors for capital financing of work

IN BRIEF - Fujian coast develops coastal aquaculture

Thursday, September 07, 2023

Technology further strengthens the province's marine products dominance
The coast of eastern China's Fujian Province has abundant marine resources and is known for its vigorous development of offshore aquaculture. Ahead of the 6th Chinese Farmers' Harvest Festival on September 23, the province's coastal aquaculture bases in Fuzhou, Ningde, Putian and other coastal cities will welcome the harvest season.
With a sea area of 136,000 square kilometers and more than 3,700 kilometers of coastline, Fujian's production of aquatic products such as yellow croaker, abalone, oysters, seaweed and seaweed ranks first in the country.
More than 1,100 5G base stations have been installed along the coast. As a result, wireless networks completely cover nearshore areas in Fujian, giving it a unique advantage in the development of the marine economy. At the same time, technological innovations continue to be made throughout the industrial chain related to marine fishing and aquaculture.
Fujian produces more than 80% of the country's farmed large yellow croaker, more than 70% of the farmed abalone, and about 50% of the seaweed.[...]
