Aquaculture news from the world’s press
Current updates on our Facebook page (facebook.com/Aquafeeddotcom) include:
AUSTRALIA - Food Crisis: The Development of Modern Aquaculture in Australia is an Imperative
The only option to improve the capacity of Australia to come closer to satisfy present and project seafood requirements through domestic production is the rapid development of aquaculture
CANADA - Fish farming: The challenge is to do it better
The war of words has been something to behold.This year may be remembered as the year when only wind farms could match salmon farming as a magnet for controversy in Nova Scotia. Now, maybe it’s time for the flag of truce.
EU - €4m EU project mines plant and fish for protein and antioxidants
A three-year EU project is targeting the typical 50%+ wastage in fish and grain stocks as a source of proteins and antioxidants that can be used to tackle malnutrition in the developing world as well as deliver green, cost-effective nutrients.
MALAYSIA - Fisheries Dept to bost aquaculture industry
To increase fish production by the aquaculture industry, the Fisheries Department will boost a programme to rehabilitate abandoned fish cages and fish ponds
PERU - S&P rates Corporacion Pesquera Inca 'B+'
We are assigning our 'B+' long-term corporate credit and issue-level ratings to Copeinca, Peru's second-largest producer of fishmeal and fish oil
PHILIPPINES - Fish sector posts P387-m loss
Fish losses due to rains and floods beginning July 20 had reached more than P387 million, displacing aquafarm operators and hundreds of fishermen in the Ilocos, Central Luzon and Southern Tagalog regions.
VIETNAM - Livestock, aquaculture to get support to overcome difficulties
The Prime Minister has asked State commercial banks to reduce interest rates on loans for farmers in the livestock and aquaculture sector while also giving them more time to pay back debts
COMMODITIES - U.S.’s inferior corn crop has supply-chain ramifications
The 2012 corn crop, rated only 23% good-to-excellent in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s latest Crop Progress report, appeared to be spreading its bad vibrations throughout the supply chain that ends on the dinner tables or in the gas tanks of American consumers
COMMODITIES -Global Fishmeal, Fish Oil Supply – Inputs, Outputs and Markets
The decreasing availability of fishmeal and fish oil for marine ingredients will force the industry to depend more heavily on by-products for fish feed, said Johnathon Shepherd, past Director General for the International Fishmeal and Fishoil Organisation (IFFO).
INTERVIEW - Few debates over the last decade have been as angry as the one about climate change
While many deem it as a threat so imminent that island countries might be submerged beneath the sea, others claim the entire subject is the result of junk science. Where do the facts really lie? Patrick Moore on the facts and fiction of climate change.
