Iceland Expects 50% Expansion of Farmed Salmon This Year, Surge in the Future

Given the problems with sea lice in Norway, and the continued high demand for salmon, investment has flowed into new areas such as Newfoundland and Iceland where salmon farming has significant opportunities to expand.

The Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority has said that it expects salmon production to reach 20,000 tons this year, up nearly 50% from the 13,448 tons produced in 2018.

Partly this is driven by new investments, and by more farms coming online.

Salmar has recently added to its stake in...

Ecojustice sues Province of Newfoundland Over Mowi Stephenville Salmon Hatchery Expansion

Newfoundland is one of the places in the world seeing a major expansion of net pen salmon production and infrastructure.  Part of this is because the Provincial government is fully behind the development of an aquaculture industry, and both land and water sites are available. A recent McKenzie report on growth strategies suggested the Province could see 100,000 tons of salmon production annually by 2030 if potential was realized.

Part of their recommendations involved using and expanding existing sites.  This is what Marine Harvest (Mowi) is attempting to...

Salmon Permit Values Increase For All But A Few Alaska Regions

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch –

Nearly all Alaska salmon permits have gone up in value since last fall and broker action is brisk.

“We’re as busy as we’ve ever been in the last 20 years. Boat sales are doing well and between IFQs and permit sales, we’ve got a busy year going.”

Doug Bowen runs Alaska Boats and Permits in Homer.

The permit interest is fueled by a forecast this year of over 213 million salmon, an 85 percent increase over 2018...

Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance Issue Position Statement on GE Salmon

Following news that the first genetically modified salmon is set to hit Canadian stores, the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance (CAIA) issued a position statement on GE salmon products.

Alaska April 2019 Fishing Updates

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch –

Lots of fishing is underway in April all across Alaska. 

One sad exception is the roe herring fishery at Sitka Sound where seiners have yet to wet their nets. Typically the fishery has come and gone by mid-March and the harvest called for a nearly 13,000 ton haul.

The herring, which are valued for their eggs, are showing up but they are too small to call an opener. The latest Sitka herring fishery ever occurred on April 15 in 2002...

US Admin Threatens Another Tariff Headache for US Seafood Importers: Salmon Fillets, Octopus from Europe

As many in the seafood industry know, our own government has been hurting both American consumers and exporters with seafood tariff wars that have resulted in significant disruption and dislocation for some segments within the US seafood industry.

This is likely to continue if Washington goes through with retaliatory tariffs against Airbus.  The US Trade representative published a list of items being considered for a tariff to counteract subsidies that the US claims the EU provides Airbus...

Hatcheries Again Add One-Third to the Alaska Salmon Catch

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch –

Salmon that got their start in Alaska hatcheries are maintaining a decade long trend of comprising one third of the statewide catch.  

In 2018, a hatchery harvest of 39 million salmon – mostly chums and pinks - was 34 percent of the total take, valued at $176 million to Alaska fishermen.

Forty one million adult salmon returned to Alaska’s 29 hatcheries last year, shy of the 54 million fish forecast, and below the 61 million 10 year average...

Hatchery Program Funded by Alaska Fishermen

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch –

Commercial fishermen pick up the tab for just about anyone who catches a salmon in Alaska that started its life in a hatchery.

That was revealed during a hearing last week of the House Fisheries Committee on the state’s hatchery program which began in the mid-1970s to enhance Alaska’s wild salmon runs.

“Who funds the hatchery programs?” asked Rep. Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins of Sitka referring to the 25 private, non-profit associations that operate in Prince William Sound, Southeast Alaska, Kodiak and Cook Inlet...

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are moving forward with a 38-acre estuary restoration project on Hood Canal.

Many California Crabbers Switching to Chinook Trolling as Salmon Seasons Are Set

From San Francisco to Crescent City, Calif., crab pots were being loaded onto trailers and stacked in port lots for storage as Dungeness crabbers were forced to stop fishing Monday.

But there may be a little light at the end of the tunnel: Many crabbers also fish for salmon, and California salmon trollers will have more than 25 percent additional opportunity this year.

The seasons must still be approved by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, but managers said that is expected.

The Winding Glass: Markets Don’t Care

This column from SeafoodNews Founder and Publisher John Sackton is a new trial feature that may continue as John retires from active management of SeafoodNews.  

The spring is a time when many seasonal price negotiations get underway in fisheries where harvesters negotiate a fixed price.  This certainly happens in Snow Crab, Cold water Shrimp, and Canadian Cod; and to a lesser extent lobster.

Other seafood producers, such as those farming salmon, shrimp, or landing scallops or groundfish see prices vary from week to week depending on the commodity market demand...

2019 Forecast for Total Run of Pink Salmon in PWS is 23.5M, Copper River Sockeye Run at 1.4M

Managing Alaska’s salmon fisheries in the post-Blob era is complicated by a whole host of different “what if’s?” focused on how the anomalous heat wave that hit the Gulf of Alaska in 2014-2016 affected the ocean environment for salmon. 

Biologists in Southcentral Alaska have estimated a return of pink salmon to Prince William Sound of 23.5 million fish, nearly twice as much as the recent 10 odd-year average (1999–2017) PWS wild pink salmon total run...
