    SFF Statement on French boycott of imported fish

    https://www.sff.co.uk/statement-on-f...imported-fish/

    Reacting to what is understood to be a boycott of imported fish, including from Scotland, among some large French retailers at the behest of a small section of the country’s fleet, Elspeth Macdonald, chief executive of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, said:

    “This is deeply regrettable at a time when markets have been devastated due to the Covid-19 pandemic and we need to be encouraging rather than restricting their operation.

    “We are pressing the case with the UK and Scottish governments and have been in touch with the French embassy. Hopefully common sense will prevail and this discriminatory practice can be brought to an end swiftly.”

    Norway : Demand down all round for Norwegian seafood exports

    ‘So far we have seen a fall in demand for Norwegian seafood overall. For example, salmon export volumes are stable while the price measured in Euro has fallen by about 30%. The expected fall in purchasing power also creates uncertainty about future demand, for example for clipfish,’ said Tom-Jørgen Gangsø, director of market insight and market access at the Norwegian Seafood Council.

    According to Norwegian Seafood Council analyst Ingrid Kristine Pettersen, a decline in exports of fresh whole cod during the corona period can be attributed to both reduced demand and reduced catches as a result of bad weather.

    ‘The shift in exports of fresh cod towards processing markets such as Poland and the Netherlands also continued last week. Increased demand for frozen and fresh prepackaged products in grocery in several markets explains some of this growth,’ she said.

    ‘However, the growth in retail does not seem to outweigh the loss from the more or less full closure of the restaurant segment. This contributes to the price fall measured in NOK, from historically high levels earlier this winter to the same level as last year. This is despite a weak Norwegian krone.’

    Exports of fresh cod fell by 7% in week 17 compared to the same week last year, to 1119 tonnes. In addition to Denmark, which is a traditional reloading market, last week also saw growth in exports to the Netherlands and Poland.

    Exports of frozen whole cod have been positive so far this year. Last week, exports of frozen whole cod increased by 26% compared to same week in 2019. Skrei exports dropped by 43% in week 17 compared to the same week the year before.

    ‘We are now well into the final week of the skrei season and exports for the season are expected to fall significantly below last year’s record volumes. Regardless of the weather, exports of cod have fallen significantly since the corona restrictions were implemented. The main reason is reduced demand from the restaurant segment in key markets. At the same time, there has been a positive development for skrei in grocery in Spain,’ she reports.

    The situation in Portugal with increased unemployment and weakened purchasing power has resulted in a drop in cod clipfish exports – down by 51% in week 17 compared to the same week last year.

    ‘Most households in Portugal believe that their daily routines will be affected over the next two months. Economically, most consumers expect to cut back on their spending and be more cautious about personal consumption. The demise of the tourist and restaurant market over time, together with reduced purchasing power, can lead to a decrease in the consumption of clipfish,’ said Johnny Thomassen, the Norwegian Seafood Council’s country director in Portugal.

    ‘As long as the corona restrictions continue in Brazil, and until Brazilians get back to work, there will be significantly reduced demand for clipfish in the market,’ said Øystein Valanes, the Norwegian Seafood Council’s country director in Brazil.

    ‘Surveys show that 80% of Brazilians buy only basic goods as a result of the crisis: rice, beans, potato and cheap animal proteins. At the same time, during the financial crisis, even with reduced purchasing power, Brazilians prioritised buying clipfish. The sharpest oil price fall in modern times along with political instability further contributes to the fact that it will take time for the Brazilian economy to pick up.’

    Covid-19 hits Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries and aquaculture

    https://fiskerforum.com/covid-19-hit...d-aquaculture/


    Small-scale and coastal Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic

    The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are being felt by the fisheries and aquaculture sectors around the world – and in the Mediterranean and Black Sea small-scale fisheries have been badly hit.

    A study carried out by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean has found that there have been reductions of up to 80% in the number of fishing vessels able to operate – with fewer than 10% of small-scale and coastal fishing boats working.

    The report finds that the figures vary from region to region, with anything between 40 and 100% of larger vessels able to continue fishing.

    ‘Social distancing restrictions were reported to be the hardest to comply with, especially in fisheries involving small vessels,’ the GFCM report states.

    ‘For capture fisheries, the immediate response was a general decrease in production, greater than 75% in most of the countries. A notable exception was Turkey, where production continued at pre-crisis levels thanks to a constant demand, encouraged by decreasing prices and dedicated consumer campaigns. Some signs of improvement have been evident in April with some fisheries adapting (such as with changes in target species and in marketing strategies in line with changes in the demand) and small-scale fisheries potentially better adjusting to market demand.’

    Effects on aquaculture operations have also been variable, with finfish farms, which generally require daily distribution of feed, environmental monitoring and pathology control, remaining active but with a reduction in staff, whereas farms rearing other species requiring less regular maintenance decreased their activity. In Tunisia, aquaculture farms and facilities continued operating, while in some regions of Italy the number of active farms varied between 50 and 95%.

    ‘The GFCM will continue to follow the evolution of this crisis to take steps to support the recovery of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, with a special focus on the impacts on the livelihoods of fishers and aquaculture farmers,’ GFCM states.

    ‘A mix of immediate action and longer-term strategic initiatives is needed to secure and reconcile the economic, social and environmental sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture sectors in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The post-2020 strategy of the GFCM will heed this call.’
