Iceland: Utilising fish waste is theme of inaugural conference at IceFish
Wednesday, 13 August 2014 11:37

Icefish2014Today, three decades since it was launched in 1984, the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition is a fixed item in the global calendar of fisheries events. Starting this year on 25 September in Kópavogur, Iceland, the three-day event has been sold out with over 500 exhibitors expected to participate. The last edition of the IceFish exhibition held in 2011 attracted 12,500 visitors from 50 countries and the organisers, Mercator Media, are confident that this figure will be exceeded this year. The exhibition is a showcase for every aspect of the industry from vessel design and construction, fish catching and locating, to processing and packaging. This year also sees the launch of the Iceland Fisheries Conference, an event organised with the Icelandic government, the research organisation MATIS, and the University of Iceland. The theme of this inaugural conference is Fish Waste for Profit – Maximising Return by Utilising the Entire Fish, and papers will discuss ways of extracting parts of the fish that would normally be discarded and adding value to them, as well as offer forecasts for the most profitable forms of fish utilisation in the future. As resources of fish and seafood are limited companies are more than ever interested in ways of monetising those parts of the fish which hitherto have been considered waste. Examples include the use of fish parts, such as heads, guts, and skin to produce biodiesel, or extracting ingredients from fish waste to be used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, or nutraceutical industries. More information about the conference is available at www.icefishconference.com.

FAO: Asia’s share of global fish consumption expected to reach 70% by 2030
Tuesday, 25 February 2014 17:37

Fishing-globeGlobal production of fish and seafood is expected to increase further in 2013 to 160m tonnes from 157m tonnes in 2012. Aquaculture plays an important role in this production: in 2013 FAO estimates suggest that just under half the production of fish for human consumption will come from the aquaculture industry, while a recent report from the World Bank predicts that by 2030 that share will have risen to almost two thirds. Growth in the production of farmed fish will be driven by increases in the volumes of tilapia, carp and catfish. Tilapia production in particular is expected to reach over 7m tonnes by 2030, almost twice the volume in 2010.
