Mowi Scotland Responds to Activist’s Claims of Fish Welfare Issues

Mowi Scotland said allegations of fish abuse made by anti-salmon farming activist Don Staniford lack “veracity.”

Staniford entered the company’s salmon pens on July 16 and 17 and used an underwater camera to show fish that are showing signs of distress, Mowi Scotland said.

Mowi said that a similar complaint was filed in March 2021, leading to an investigation by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSCPA). The investigation found no evidence to the claims made by activists, per Mowi...

As of this writing, the farmed salmon index is 31 percent higher than the 5-year average and 61.9 percent higher than the same time last year...

Drought Conditions in West Necessitate Klamath River Hatchery Salmon Relocation

It's no secret the heat has taken a toll on residents in the West: heat domes causing triple-digit temperatures, marine invertebrates dying due to the heat, wildfires, water rationing, the list goes on.

Now it's too hot and risky for baby fall Chinook to be released into the Klamath River. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife said the exceedingly poor water conditions meant changing its hatchery release methods this year for the Klamath, the first time since 1962.

Department staff successfully relocated 1.1 million juvenile, fall-run Chinook...

According to the May customs statistics released by the Ministry of Finance on June 29, imports of marine products (including non-edibles) have picked up slightly even though they are less than last month.

Norway exported seafood worth NOK 53.7 billion ($6.2 billion) in the first six months of 2021, a slight uptick from last year’s six-month total.

Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market's salmon sales in May fell below the same month last year for the first time in 15 months. Although sales of fresh and salted salmon recovered, the overall decline in sales was due to the sharp price rise in frozen coho salmon from Chile. The sales, which had been performing well, were suddenly braked, reported Suisan Keizai.
