IN BRIEF - Breeding breakthrough paves way for intensive tuna farming on land

Monday, September 04, 2023

Spanish research centre achieves first tank-bred Atlantic bluefin as NGOs warn of poor welfare, more antibiotic use and water pollution

The first successful breeding of Atlantic bluefin tuna at a Spanish research centre has spurred at least two companies to ramp up plans for the industrial farming of land-bred tuna.

The companies would be the first to use only tank-bred Atlantic bluefin stocks of fertilised eggs or young tuna. Up to now, farming of Atlantic bluefin has relied on catching young wild fish and fattening them in open-sea cages.

After the breakthrough in July at the government-run Mazarrón aquaculture plant in Murcia, the company Next Tuna said it plans to begin building a tuna farm north of Valencia. Nortuna, a Norwegian company, has also signed a deal with Mazarrón for the firm’s pilot site in Cape Verde, off the west coast of Africa.

Commercial aquaculture companies argue that as more fish are farmed from stocks in closed tanks, fewer wild Atlantic bluefins will be caught for fattening or immediate consumption, reducing pressure on sea stocks.[...]

IN BRIEF - ASEAN must be brave to be agriculture, aquaculture hub: Minister

Monday, September 04, 2023

Jakarta (ANTARA) - Minister of Co-operatives and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Teten Masduki, here on Friday, underscored the need for ASEAN to be brave to claim itself to be the global hub of agriculture and aquaculture production.

"In the global context, ASEAN should dare to claim itself to be the global hub of agriculture and aquaculture production. Indonesia, as the largest country in ASEAN, is 'very awaited' to lead in these two sectors," he stated at the ASEAN Weekend Market held in Senayan here on Friday.

Masduki remarked that the region is not only rich in creative products, such as fashion, culinary, and crafts, but it is also strong in agriculture and aquaculture or fisheries products.

In 2019, ASEAN's fisheries products accounted for 21.9 percent of the world's total fisheries' production, and the figure is projected to increase by over five percent in 2025.

Muscat – In an effort to increase fish production and advance food security, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources has inaugurated a pioneering pilot project dedicated to farm brown mussels in Dhofar.

Elaborating on the project, Ghassani said, “Our research team has conducted experiments in four distinct areas of Taqah and Mirbat, utilising the long-line culture system, to gauge the growth rate of these cultured brown mussels.”

Highlighting the natural presence of this species, he said, “Mussel habitats stretch from Dhalkut to Sharbithat in Dhofar. We’ve undertaken comprehensive field surveys to pinpoint the distribution and prevalence of these mussels.”

IN BRIEF - Farmers laud Olam Agri’s contribution to aquaculture growth

Monday, September 04, 2023

Fish farmears in Nigeria have lauded for the recent improvement in productivity levels in the aquaculture segment, attributing this to the company’s investments in the value chain.

Speaking during a recent value chain review exercise, the farmers attested to the business’ efforts at raising operating capacity in the aquaculture sector.

Olam Agri in Nigeria, an agribusiness in food, feed and fiber started investing in the aquaculture value chain in 2017 through its feed milling unit.

Before then, the sector was bedeviled with different challenges among which were poor knowledge of modern fish farming practices, inaccessibility of high-quality feed, high mortalities in hatcheries, slow growth in nursery phase and irregular sizes during harvest. This led the agribusiness to immediately set machinery in motion to address the challenges. (...)
