Nova Scotia wants a new seafood brand - Aquaculture Directory

Nova Scotia wants a new seafood brand - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Cool logo will offer a “competitive advantage in key global markets.”

 It seems even lobsters need help with their branding.


The province has issued a request for proposals for a new Nova Scotia seafood brand. The department of Fisheries and Aquaculture  will use the winning logo in international markets and presumably to generate buzz with millennials.

 

“Nova Scotia’s seafood sector needs geographical branding that gives our product an assurance of distinctiveness attributable to its origin,” reads the government document. Establishing a new fish and seafood brand will “give us a competitive advantage in key global markets such as Asia, Eastern Europe and the United States.”

 

To do that, the branding must be clear and “convincingly distinct,” while also conveying our “greatest advantages and selling features.” Those are, according to the RFP document, our global reputation for sustainable products, the geographical advantages that make for “ease of shipping and logistics” and, of course, our “exceptional taste and premium quality.”

Record value for Norwegian salmon exports in January - Aquaculture Directory

Record value for Norwegian salmon exports in January - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Norway exported salmon worth NOK 4.3 billion in January. An increase of 18 per cent or NOK 644 million compared to January 2015. This represents an all-time high for the month of January. Measured by volume, 73,463 tonnes of salmon were exported in January, which is 4 per cent, or 3,300 tonnes less than in January 2015.

 

”A lower supply of salmon from Norway, in combination with a weak Norwegian krone and strong demand in the markets has led to record prices this month for Norwegian salmon”, says Paul T. Aandahl, Analyst for salmon and trout with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

 

Record high salmon prices


The average export price for fresh whole salmon in January was NOK 55.62 per kg. This is NOK 11.4 per kg or 26 per cent higher than the same month in 2015. This is the highest average export price obtained for a single month since 1988. The price in January 2016 was 9 per cent higher than the average price in December 2015.

Seafish partnering with SFP and Seafood Watch to develop first ever risk assessment tool for social responsibility in global fisheries - Aquaculture Directory

Seafish partnering with SFP and Seafood Watch to develop first ever risk assessment tool for social responsibility in global fisheries - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch programme, Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) and Seafish, the authority on seafood in the UK, are partnering to scope out the development of a risk assessment tool for social responsibility in fisheries, a first of its kind. The announcement was made at the Seaweb Seafood Summit in Malta.
 
Using information found in the public domain about various social issues in fisheries around the world, it will analyse the results and generate scores in low, medium and high categories of risk.
 
The methodology will focus only on the "at sea" part of the seafood supply chain, and addressing wild-caught seafood only. The organisations are working together to ensure the methodology is globally relevant and designed to present results for fisheries worldwide. To validate the methodology, it will be piloted with fisheries representative of the global market.

 

The partnership was born out of a requirement to design a tool that allows for straightforward integration into Seafood Watch, SFP's FishSource and Seafish's Risk Assessment for Sourcing Seafood (RASS). In addition, to maximise its use, the tool will have a dedicated website to allow other programmes to make use of the results.

Two scientists eager to develop the aquaculture industry - Aquaculture Directory

Two scientists eager to develop the aquaculture industry - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Ambitions are high, funding is available and the technology is well on the way when it comes to closed aquaculture facilities. This means that the road from research to implementation may be short. This is what tempted two international scientists to move to Sunndalsøra on the west coast of Norway, to be involved in developing the new generation of closed-containment salmon aquaculture facilities.

 

“It will be very interesting to be part of the development just now, in such a large industry. I can carry out research and see how the results are immediately implemented,” says Vasco Mota, a biologist from Portugal.

 

Jagan Gorle is an expert in computational modelling and flow analysis from India, while Vasco Mota is an expert in fish biology from Portugal. Both are coping well with adapting to living and working at Nofima in Sunndalsøra. This is the main centre for CtrlAQUA, a centre for research-based innovation (SFI) established by the Research Council of Norway in order to promote innovation within closed-containment systems during the coming eight years.

 

Six research actors and 13 participants from the aquaculture industry and associated technology sectors are partners in the centre, all of whom are front-runners in the development of salmon aquaculture in closed systems.

Hy-Vee achieves Sustainable Seafood Goal - Aquaculture Directory

Hy-Vee achieves Sustainable Seafood Goal - Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Hy-Vee, Inc. announced that 100 percent of its fresh and private label frozen seafood now comes from responsible sources. In 2011, Hy-Vee committed to procuring its fresh and frozen seafood from environmentally responsible sources by the end of 2015.

 

In January 2014, approximately 62 percent of Hy-Vee’s fresh and private label frozen seafood was responsibly sourced. And in the last year, Hy-Vee achieved a 38% increase — reaching its 100% responsible sourcing goal by the end of December 2015. The results were recently confirmed last month.

 

Hy-Vee’s intent is to sell high-quality seafood that is not only safe for consumption but also harvested or raised in a manner that provides for its long-term viability while minimising damage to the environment and other sea life. To follow through on those commitments, Hy-Vee chose to transition all of its fresh and private label farmed salmon to responsible sources rated Yellow or Green by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, and supplement those options with wild Alaskan salmon.

 

By engaging in certification strengthening and encouraging shrimp farmers to make improvements, Hy-Vee also was able to source 100 percent of its fresh and private label frozen farmed shrimp from responsible sources.
