The Fish Site logoAccording to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the global aquaculture market was valued at $11.16 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $15.90 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 5.2 per cent from 2013 to 2019.

Lack of adequate power infrastructure and increasing demand for reliable electricity delivery are the major driving forces of this market.  Read more …

FIS_logoThe Aquaculture Sanitary Committee of Sonora (COSAES) recommends aquaculture producers to request the appropriate health certificate for transferring tilapia living organisms and the fishing guide.

This recommendation is aimed at preventing the onset of new diseases in the country, caused by the bacteria Francisella and Streptococcus, or the parasite Gnathostoma, among other pathogens, which would have serious health and economic consequences for the aquaculture producers of Sonora.  Read more …

Seafood Source logoIt might happen slowly, but over time the seafood industry has to come together through consolidation.

Michael Richards, VP of seafood industry banking at Santander, told SeafoodSource that this year has seen a little more in terms ofconsolidation activity than in the past, pointing to recent larger moves including U.S.-based shrimp importer Eastern Fish Co. being acquired by Japan-based Marubeni Corp., Canada’s Cooke Aquaculture’s expansion in Scotland and Massachusetts and U.S.-based Eastern Fisheries’ investment in a Japanese distributor.

“Consolidation in the seafood industry is driven by the desire to increase in scale and increase efficiency,” Richards told SeafoodSource. “Because [seafood companies] recognize how global the industry is and how important it is to solidify the network of customers.  Read more …

OECDThe recent fall in prices of major crops is expected to continue over the next two years before stabilising at levels above the pre-2008 period, but markedly below recent peaks, according to the latest Agricultural Outlook produced by the OECD and FAO.

Demand for agricultural products is expected to remain firm while expanding at lower rates than in the past decade. Cereals are still at the core of what people eat, but diets are becoming higher in protein, fats and sugar in many parts of the world, as incomes rise and urbanisation increases.

The OECD–FAO Agricultural Outlook 2014-2023  says such changes, combined with a growing global population, will require substantial expansion of production over the coming decade. Led by Asia and Latin America, developing regions will account for more than 75% of additional agricultural output over the next decade.

Presenting the report in Rome, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría said: “Agriculture markets are returning to more settled conditions after a period of unusually high prices. This has been helped by governments showing restraint in the use of trade measures. But we cannot be complacent. We must do more – on trade, on productivity, and to tackle poverty. Governments should provide social protection for the most vulnerable, and develop tools to help farmers manage risks and invest in agricultural productivity. Achieving gains in ways that are both inclusive and sustainable remains a formidable challenge.”

FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said: “This year’s Outlook is favourable, if we compare it with the turbulent past few years of high and volatile food prices. Farmers around the globe responded to high food prices with a strong supply, and as a result crop prices are expected to be comparatively flat this decade. Agriculture has to provide not just more food for human consumption, but also raw material for industrial purposes, such as biofuels and animal feed.”

In a special focus on India, the Outlook projects sustained food production and consumption growth, led by value-added sectors like dairy production and aquaculture. Investment in production technology and infrastructure together with  subsidies in a range of areas have contributed to strong output expansion over the past decade, the report says, and pressure on resources is expected to reduce production growth rates over the coming years. While remaining largely vegetarian, Indian diets will diversify. As consumption of cereals, milk and dairy products, pulses, fruit and vegetables grows, the intake of food nutrients will improve.  India is currently home to the largest number of food-insecure people in the world.

The Agricultural Outlook says global cereal production is projected to be 15 percent higher by 2023 than in the 2011-13 period. The fastest production growth is expected to be oilseeds, at 26 percent over the next 10 years.  The expansion of coarse grain and oilseed production will be driven by strong demand for biofuels, particularly in developed countries, and growing feed requirements in developing regions.

The expansion of food crop production will be more moderate over the coming decade, the report says, with wheat output growing by around 12 percent and rice by 14 percent, well below the growth rates of the previous decade. Sugar production is expected to increase by 20 percent over the coming decade, concentrated mainly in developing countries.

The Agricultural Outlook projects developments in a broad range of commodities over the coming decade:

  • Cereals: World prices of major grains will ease early in the outlook period, boosting world trade. Stocks are projected to rise with rice inventories in Asia reaching record high.
  • Oilseeds: The global share of cropland planted to oilseeds continues to increase albeit at a slower rate than in recent years as growing  demand for vegetable oils pushes prices up.
  • Sugar: After weakening in late 2013, prices will recover, driven by strong global demand. Exports from Brazil, the world’s dominant sugar exporter, will be influenced by the ethanol market.
  • Meat: Firm import demand from Asia, as well as herd rebuilding in North America support prices which are expected to remain above the average levels of the previous decade, when adjusted for inflation. Beef prices are seen rising to record levels. Poultry should overtake pork to become the most consumed meat product over the next 10 years.
  • Dairy: Prices fall slightly from their current high levels due to sustained productivity gains in the major producing countries and resumed growth in China. India overtakes the  European Union to become the largest milk producer in the world, building considerable skimmed milk powder exports.
  • Fisheries: Aquaculture production growth will be concentrated in Asia, and will remain one of the fastest-growing food sectors,  surpassing capture fisheries for human consumption in 2014.
  • Biofuels: The consumption and production levels of biofuels are expected to increase by more than 50 percent, led by sugar-based ethanol and biodiesel. The ethanol price increases in line with the crude oil price, while the biodiesel price  more closely follows the path of vegetable oil prices.
  • Cotton: The expected release of accumulated global stocks will boost consumption, helped by lower prices which should then recover by 2023.

When I meet Kenny Belov mid-morning at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, the boats that would normally be out at sea chasing salmon sit tethered to their docks. The steady breeze coursing through the bay belies choppier conditions farther out—so rough that the local fishermen threw in the towel for the fifth morning in a row. Belov scans the horizon as he explains this, feet away from the warehouse of his sustainable seafood company, TwoXSea. Because his business hinges on what local fishermen can bring in, he’s used to coping with wild fish shortages.  Read more …

An independent report commissioned by the Nova Scotia government is casting doubt on the commercial viability of farming Atlantic salmon in land-based, closed-containment facilities.

The report by Gardner Pinfold Consulting concludes that land-based salmon farming operations — while technically feasible — would have to be large-scale to overcome the inherent engineering, building, labour and energy costs.  Read more …

 

Dr. Deepika Dave, a research scientist with the Marine Institute (MI) of Memorial University is currently working to address one of the key issues in the province’s aquaculture industry – what do to do with salmon waste.

Dr. Dave is leading the Centre for Aquaculture and Seafood Development’s (CASD) marine biodiesel research team in creating biodiesel and other value added products from salmon waste.  Read more …
