World’s first ’offshore’ aquaculture development project receives green light from Norwegian government | Aquaculture Directory

World’s first ’offshore’ aquaculture development project receives green light from Norwegian government | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The Norwegian Ministry of Trade and Fisheries has approved Norway’s first development concession enabling Ocean Farming AS, supported by Kongsberg Maritime AS, to build the world’s first automated ’exposed’ aquaculture facility. Situated outside of Trondheim, this innovative new facility introduces a paradigm shift in salmon farming now, and other fish types in the future and is a significant step in Norway’s efforts to deliver technical solutions to address the impending global food gap challenge. 

The Ocean Farming facility is a new and innovative design, developed to overcome the challenges of more traditional inshore fish farming facilities by being located in deeper waters, further from the coast. The submerged, anchored fixed structure will float steady in the exposed ocean and is suitable for water depths of 100 to 300 meters, where the aqua biological conditions are more ideal for aquaculture on ’the fish’s terms’. 

The benefits of offshore fish farms are numerous, with conditions more suited to nurturing healthy fish, such as steady currents that limit exposure to sea lice infection. The facility is fully automated with normal operation requiring a crew of just 3 – 4 people. It can also be remotely operated.

Seafood exports reach record high | Aquaculture Directory

Seafood exports reach record high | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Seafood, one of the country’s top export earners, continues to show strong growth with exports reaching a record high of $1.713 billion in the year to end March, says Seafood New Zealand Chief Executive Tim Pankhurst. 

The strong export growth for seafood accelerated in the first quarter of the year, he says. 

“This is an 11.4 percent increase on the previous year and an $80 million increase on the previous high of $1.63 billion for the 2015 calendar year. “Month on month growth of 18 percent in January over the previous year was even higher at 23 percent in March,” Tim Pankhurst says. 

The strongest value growth is from exports of frozen fin fish with rock lobster, orange roughy, fish meal and mussels also returning increased prices.

Sales of fresh cod, including Skrei cod and filet, have so far this year totalled NOK 1.39 billion, up NOK 203 million or 17 percent compared with the same period last year.

U.S. consumers hooked on health benefits of fish, Cargill survey finds | Aquaculture Directory

U.S. consumers hooked on health benefits of fish, Cargill survey finds | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
According to a recent Cargill Animal Nutrition survey, U.S. consumers recognise there are more health benefits associated with eating fish and seafood compared to taking fish oil supplements. Consumers understand that the health benefits of fish, the world's fastest growing protein source, outweigh that of fish oil supplements, despite their popularity. 

While one-third (33 percent) of U.S. households take fish oil supplements, more consumers (90 percent) across all generations associate health benefits with fish/seafood over fish oil supplements (82 percent). According to the study, the top three benefits consumers associate with seafood consumption are heart health (60 percent), low fat (49 percent) and brain health (41 percent).

Seajoy’s ablation-free shrimp answers emerging welfare concern | Aquaculture Directory

Seajoy’s ablation-free shrimp answers emerging welfare concern | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Collaboration with Lyons Seafood, GAA, University of Stirling finds success without removing the eyestalk, considered by some as cruelty 

Removing the eyestalk of broodstock female shrimp helped fuel the explosive growth of commercial-scale aquaculture over the past quarter-century. A collaboration led by a Central American shrimp farmer has shown that producing shrimp at great volume, without ablation, is possible without the feared drop in production and increase in cost. 

Moving away from the practice should also ease growing animal welfare worries. The surgical removal of a crustacean’s eyestalk, known as ablation, is standard practice in shrimp hatcheries worldwide. The eyestalk of a shrimp contains a complex of glands that influence molting, sexual maturation and spawning processes. Cutting it was one of the most important developments in the commercialisation of shrimp farming in the 1970s and 1980s: Broodstock females with ablated eyestalks matured faster and released 10 to 20 times more eggs.

Continuing growth in seafood exports | Aquaculture Directory

Continuing growth in seafood exports | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
So far this year Norwegian seafood exports have totalled NOK 28.8 billion. This is an increase of 26 percent or NOK 5.9 billion year-on-year. ”Norwegian seafood exports are booming. 

By volume, exports are slightly down during the first four months of this year, but by value we see a gain of NOK 5.9 billion compared with the same period last year. 

This is due to strong demand and high prices for Norwegian seafood, combined with a continuing favourable currency situation”, says Communications Director Geir Håvard Hanssen with the Norwegian Seafood Council. 

”Salmon and trout have been the main contributors to strong export growth. Salmon has seen average prices of NOK 56.81 per kilo so far this year, compared with an average price of NOK 41.89 per kilo in the same period last year. 

We have seen strong numbers for April, an increase of 35 percent year-on-year. Part of the explanation for this is the early Easter holiday and so less holidays during the April month, compared with last year”, says Hanssen.
