VIETNAM: Northern district reports fisheries output over 136,000 tons

VIETNAM: Northern district reports fisheries output over 136,000 tons | Fish in Demand -Aquaculture-and-More by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

In the first 8 months of this year, the fisheries output in Van Don district of Quang Ninh Province reached 13,637 tons, accounting for a 1% increase over the same period in 2013.

 

Of the output, 8,595 tons came from exploitation and the rest from aquaculture.

 

The district reports to have 3,000 hectares of salt and brackish water and 70 hectares of fresh water allocated to aquaculture .

 

In 2014, apart from encouraging fishermen to go offshore fishing, Van Don district has worked closely with relevant departments and agencies to provide instruction to people on high quality breeding techniques in order to develop a sustainable and effective model for aquacultural production./.

'Vissen zijn ook dieren'

'Vissen zijn ook dieren' | Fish in Demand -Aquaculture-and-More by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

"Niet alle mensen beseffen dat vissen ook dieren zijn waarmee je voorzichtig om moet gaan. Je kunt ze niet zomaar onder alle omstandigheden kweken.''

 

Dat zegt hoogleraar dierfysiologie Gert Flik van de Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen. Flik heeft samen met onderzoekers uit Wageningen en Utrecht subsidie gekregen van de Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO) voor een onderzoek naar agressie bij gekweekte meervallen, zo maakte de universiteit dinsdag bekend.

Meervallen vertonen in kweekvijvers agressief gedrag en kunnen kannibalistisch zijn. Wetenschappers gaan uitzoeken waarom de vissen aan stress lijden en agressief worden en wat daaraan verbeterd kan worden. Tegelijkertijd onderzoeken ethici hoe ze kwekers en consumenten meer begrip voor de vissen kunnen bijbrengen.

De Dierenbescherming en Vissenbescherming zijn bij het onderzoek betrokken, zo meldt de universiteit.

Tong plant zich voort in kweekvijver

Tong plant zich voort in kweekvijver | Fish in Demand -Aquaculture-and-More by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

Gekweekte tong plant zich in een vijver gemakkelijk en al op jonge leeftijd voort. Dat hebben wetenschappers van de Wageningen Universiteit ontdekt, die op een proefbedrijf op Colijnsplaat onderzoeken of het mogelijk is van tongkwekerij een rendabele sector te maken.

De ontdekking is volgens de onderzoekers verrassend, zo bleek donderdag, aangezien de platvis in het wild pas op latere leeftijd tot voortplanting komt. Bovendien werd aangenomen dat voortplanting in kweekvijvers niet zo makkelijk zou verlopen.

Gino Smit's insight:

Aquacultuur
Tot nu toe wordt tong alleen in het wild gevangen, maar de opbrengst is zeer wisselend. De Stichting Zeeuwse Tong, een samenwerkingsverband van wetenschappers, probeert binnendijkse aquacultuur met tong en schelpdieren van de grond te tillen. Dat zou een duurzame visserijsector kunnen worden, die bovendien een nieuwe toekomst biedt aan akkerbouwers in Zeeland, die in toenemende mate te maken krijgen met verzilting van de bodem en die daarom een andere bron van inkomsten moeten vinden. Het onderzoek naar de kweektong wordt voortgezet.

PORTUGAL: La acuicultura marina se consolida como motor de crecimiento en Portugal

PORTUGAL: La acuicultura marina se consolida como motor de crecimiento en Portugal | Fish in Demand -Aquaculture-and-More by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

El informe anual cifra en un 12,2 % el aumento de la producción, aunque los precios bajan

 

La actividad acuícola en Portugal presenta signos positivos en cuanto a producción, aunque a la baja con respecto a los precios. Así lo refleja el informe “Estatísticas de Pesca 2013”, publicado por la Dirección General de Recursos Naturales, Seguridad y Servicios Martímos y el Servicio Nacional de Estadística de Portugal.

 

La publicación, con datos cerrados a 2012, indica que la producción acuícula lusa se situó en las 10,317 toneladas, lo que supone un incremento del 12,2 % con respecto a 2011. El sector, en cambio, generó 54 millones de euros, cuantía que reduce en un 8,2 las cifras del ejercicio anterior. El informe achaca esta reducción al descenso de los precios medios de algunas especies de moluscos, principalmente de la almeja.

 

La prducción en aguas salobres y marinas sigue siendo la más importante, incrementando más si cabe su peso a lo largo de 2012. Supone el 95,4 % del total. La producción de peces en estas aguas representa el 57% de la actividad, de los cuales el 89,6 % se refiere a la dorada (895 toneladas) y al rodaballo (4.406 toneladas).

 

Los moluscos bivalvos representa el 38 % de la producción en aguas saladas y solobres, con la almeja a la cabeza (2.394 toneladas). El incremento del peso de esta categoría se debe al aumento de la producción de las especies antes mencionadas, junto con el róbalo. Sin embargo, en aguas dulces se ha registrado un fuerte descenso del 57 % en la producción de truchas.

 

El número de unidades de producción con licencia para la actividad acuícola también se ha visto reducida. Concretamente en 78 unidades, lo que arroja una cifra final de 1.492 establecimientos. El cierre de unidades respondió principalmente a la revisión de licencias. En consecuencia, la superficie destinada a la acuicultura en Portugal se ha reducido un 7,3 %.

 

Del total de unidades, el 91 % corresponden a viveros para la producción de moluscos bivalvos, la mayoría de ellos concentrados en Ría Formosa. Los tanques de producción de peces representan el 6,8 % de la producción, mietras que las estructuctas flotantes el 1,9 %.

Aquatic China - VIV China

AQUATIC CHINA (BY INTERNATIONAL AQUA FEED AND VIV)

The emphasis of the Aquatic China 2014 two-day conference is creating an opportunity pathway
for those in China’s aquaculture industry to connect with some of the world’s experts on aquaculture
research, science, nutrition, feed formulation, economic production, food safety, quality assurance
and certification.

Gino Smit's insight:

Throughout the world consumers’ behaviour and attitude towards food has been changing and, as
a result, the industries supplying food need to focus on the exchange of information in order to meet
these new demands.
For example, retailers are demanding traceability; evidence of sustainable environmental activities
including welfare (both social and animal) in addition to their usual tight specifications and this is
particularly relevant in aquaculture where consumer acceptance is still being questioned.
Consumers are demanding healthier food and questioning the supply chain on all nutritional
aspects, from the feed through to the food.
The emphasis of the Aquatic China 2014 two-day conference is creating an opportunity pathway
for those in China’s aquaculture industry to connect with some of the world’s experts on aquaculture
research, science, nutrition, feed formulation, economic production, food safety, quality assurance
and certification.
Whilst the demand for aquatic food products is on the rise everywhere, the importance of delivering
live, fresh, frozen, canned and dried seafood products safely with an extended shelf life is increasing
the challenges that confront the industry.
In addition, producers are faced with increased costs, additional rules and regulations and the
potential of animal diseases that can decimate their production and processing activities.
In a lead up event to VIV China 2014 we look forward to you engaging with us at this important

Aquacultuurtechnieken - Visserij - Europese Commissie

Aquacultuurtechnieken - Visserij - Europese Commissie | Fish in Demand -Aquaculture-and-More by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

Er bestaan in Europa vele vormen van aquacultuur die van elkaar te onderscheiden zijn door de onderlinge tegenstellingen die zij vertonen: extensief of intensief, in de natuur of in bassins, in zoet water of zeewater, met continue doorstroming of recirculatie, traditioneel of modern, klassiek of organisch, beschut of in open water enz.Op basis van deze dichotomieën zijn alle nuances en alle combinaties mogelijk. Voor de presentatie van de verschillende vormen is het het eenvoudigst om simpelweg de historische ontwikkeling van de Europese aquacultuur te volgen.
