Stable fishmeal prices forecast, alternative protein players could face choppy waters

 01.06.2017 13:45:31

Fishmeal prices have softened and look like they are going to stay at that level for the mid-term, a trend that could weigh heavily on the fortunes of many an alternative protein business targeting the aquaculture sector, says an analyst.


Fishmeal replacement now commercially available

 01.06.2017 13:44:36

The first batch of FeedKind fishmeal replacement to be produced at Calysta's new production plant on Teesside is now commercially available for feed manufacturers. Four tonnes of FeedKind are now up for grabs in order to support market development in the European Union, the United States, Japan, Southeast Asia, China, and Australia. The microbial protein is produced via a continuous fermentation process of a natural microorganism, using the world's only commercially-validated gas fermentation process. The Teesside plant has met its design parameters, including key commercial metrics such as yield and productivity. The facility has successfully maintained a continuous fermentation for eight weeks, which yielded the first batch.


With fishmeal production back on track, Peru expects to regain market share

Russia aquaculture suffers due to lack of feed

 13.12.2016 13:31:49

WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. - Development of the aquaculture sector in Russia is far below its potential. The current annual production is estimated at 160,000 tonnes, or 3%-4% of total fish and seafood production in Russia, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) said in a Feb. 26 report. Russia's share of world aquaculture production is estimated at only 0.2%. Lack of government support, outdated equipment and production technologies, as well as a deficit in feed, are major constraints to further development of the sector.


Rabobank forecasts fishmeal production to improve, prices to decrease

 13.12.2016 13:28:48

Rabobank expects the anchovy total allowable catch (TAC) in Peru will normalize to 2-3 million metric tons per season from 2017 onwards, the bank said.In 2016, fishery in Peru was negatively impacted by El Nino, which brought global fishmeal production to a new low. El Nino, which contributed to increase temperatures in 2015-2016 has declined since last July. However, the expected recovery of fishery was delayed by biomass measurement issues, Rabobank said.
