Other Media | The Fish Site: Giant river prawns: a fresh hope for Bangladesh’s aquaculture sector?

BANGLADESH
Friday, April 05, 2024

A switch to farming giant river prawns is proving economically astute for a growing number of Bangladesh’s aquaculture operators, but the sector still has challenges to overcome.

In recent years, Bangladesh’s shrimp sector has faced numerous challenges, including the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. For instance, in fiscal year 2022-2023, the total value of shrimp exports was $300 million, down by $107 million compared to the previous year.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Spain urges to monitor whether the extension of emission rights to maritime transport causes diversions on the routes

SPAIN
Friday, April 05, 2024

Minister Óscar Puente warns of the risks of carbon leakage, reduced port competitiveness and loss of EU commercial sovereignty if traffic goes to other neighboring ports to avoid costs.

Once again, the desire to achieve carbon neutrality as soon as possible could work against the economy of the European Union. The extension of the emissions trading scheme (ETS) to maritime transport could work against community ports if they do not put themselves on the table to guarantee a level playing field.

NORWAY
Thursday, April 04, 2024

Norway’s amazing three year run of seafood export growth has finally stopped – at least for the time being.

Figures from the Norwegian Seafood Council today show a fall in the value of sales, including salmon, both for last month and over the first quarter of 2024.

Norway exported NOK 40.2bn (almost £3bn) worth of seafood between January and March, a decrease of NOK 1.2bn, or 3% less compared to the same period last year.

IN BRIEF - Hilton Food Group eyes further expansion and more takeovers

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, April 03, 2024

Hilton supplies major supermarkets including Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose

  • The company reported pre-tax profits skyrocketed by 64.2% to £48.6m in 2023
  • Hilton Food Group is planning further geographic expansion and potential takeover deals after profits jumped by nearly two-thirds last year.

The food packaging company, which supplies major supermarkets including Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose, reported bumper pre-tax profits growth 64.2 per cent to £48.6million in 2023.

Its UK seafood arm returned to operating profitability thanks to price hikes and new business contracts after being heavily impacted the previous year by surging cost inflation and supply chain disruption.

Hilton's core meat segment also performed strongly amid volume growth in the Asia-Pacific region and a 'resilient outturn' across the UK and Europe.

In the British Isles, the firm's revenue increased by 3.7 per cent at constant currency levels to £1.33billion as raw material price rises offset declining volumes.

At the same time, sales in Europe were bolstered by higher demand for easy meals across Scandinavia and Central Europe, as well as the acquisition of Dutch smoked salmon processor Foppen.

IN BRIEF - Royal Navy Vessel Help Counter Illegal Fishing In Fiji’s Waters

FIJI
Wednesday, April 03, 2024

HMS Tamar is the fourth of the five offshore patrol vessels built to replace the current river class vessels.

The United Kingdom Royal Navy’s offshore patrol vessel HMS Tamar, has been out on patrol in Fiji’s Exclusive Economic Zone, helping to counter illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing.

HMS Tamar was berthed at Suva Port, Fiji last week and departed on March 31, 2024.

Acting British High Commissioner to Fiji, Nicola Noble said HMS Tamar, is one of ‘two’ Royal Navy vessels that are now permanently based in the Pacific.

“We were delighted to host HMS Spey, in 2022 and it is fantastic now to have Tamar here in Fiji,” she said.

“Tamar, like Spey, has no home port and so can quickly adapt to the requirements of the Pacific and the countries that she visits.”

“Tamar has been out on patrol in Fiji’s Exclusive Economic Zone, helping to counter illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing.”

She said the HMS Tamar has extended its work on Maritime Security, an area of increasing importance in the South Pacific, and so for the UK

HMS Tamar is the fourth of the five offshore patrol vessels built to replace the current river class vessels.

HMS Tamar can perform a variety of roles, from intercepting drug-traffickers and smugglers to protecting UK territorial waters and providing humanitarian assistance in the wake of a disaster. The vessel sailed at a speed of 8.8 knots and has a gross tonnage of 2453.
