Other Media | SeafoodSource: Low salmon prices put Salmones Camanchaca in the red for second straight quarter

Wednesday, November 22, 2023

Puerto Montt, Chile-based salmon farmer Salmones Camanchaca increased its Atlantic salmon harvest to 17,760 metric tons (MT) in Q3 2023, a 24 percent year-over-year increase, but the jump in production was not enough to keep the company from falling into the red for the second straight quarter.

“This was a very challenging quarter due to the weakness of global demand and its effects on prices, added to costs that included higher prices of food inputs, inflation on [prices of] services, and outbreaks of SRS [salmonid rickettsial septicemia] and Caligus that hurt the costs of fish harvested from two centers,” Salmones Camanchaca Vice President Ricardo García Holtz said.

IN BRIEF - Cepesca asks Planas to support fishing and food sovereignty in the EU

Tuesday, November 21, 2023

The fishing sector welcomes the continuity of Luis Planas at the head of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food

IN BRIEF - Why The Name Chilean Sea Bass Is Incredibly Misleading

Tuesday, November 21, 2023

What's in a name? In the case of Chilean sea bass, the answer is a multi-million dollar industry. Superficially, this fish doesn't seem all that different from other types of whitefish, but it fetches upwards of $30 per plate at fine-dining restaurants. Chilean sea bass's buttery flavor, flaky texture, and versatility have made it a hit with chefs and diners alike, but those aren't the main reasons for its hefty price tag.

There are a number of factors contributing to the cost of Chilean sea bass, starting with the fact that these fish can be tricky to catch. They live in deep waters far from the coastline, and since they take around seven years to reach maturity, their population is slow to rebound from large catches. However, the biggest factor driving the high price of Chilean sea bass is demand, which is incredible, considering that less than 50 years ago, it was frequently tossed away by fishermen.

The rise of Chilean sea bass from bycatch to luxury meal is a remarkable saga that shows just how impactful branding can be. You see, the Chilean sea bass isn't Chilean, and it's not even a bass. While a few may be caught off the coast of Chile, the vast majority come from Antarctica, and they're actually a type of cod. Before the late 1970s, it went by a different name: the Patagonian toothfish. Why then, has the fishing industry spun this lie for us? [...]

IN BRIEF - Commission Investigates Vizag Fishing Harbour Blaze: 45 Boats Destroyed

Tuesday, November 21, 2023

In response to the devastating fire that engulfed the Visakhapatnam Fishing Harbour on Sunday night, the Andhra Pradesh government has taken swift action by assembling a specialized committee to delve into the incident that resulted in the destruction of 45 mechanized boats.

The committee, comprised of officials from the revenue, fire services, fisheries, and police departments, aims to uncover the circumstances leading to the inferno. Additionally, a task force, including personnel from the Crime, Task Force, and Central Crime Station (CCS) units, has been mobilized to interrogate the detained suspects and track down individuals who absconded following the event.

Visakhapatnam Police Commissioner A. Ravi Shankar stated, "We have initiated an investigation into the accidental fire, appointing the Assistant Commissioner of Police (Harbour) as the Inquiry Officer. Detentions have been made to ascertain the key orchestrator behind this incident and the motive."

Initial findings suggest a conflict between the boat owner, where the fire originated, and an individual running a YouTube channel within the fishermen’s community. Allegedly, the YouTube channel operator had received an advance payment from the boat owner for the purchase of another vessel.[...]
