The Fishin' Company is Leading Effort to Clean Up China's Farmed Tilapia and Seafood Sector 

Major tilapia distributor The Fishin' Company is leading efforts in China to make sure all of the tilapia imported to the US market is raised by farmers practicing responsible methods in their seafood supply chains. The company is in year two of a project that is helping more farmers get international sustainable farming certification by third parties, like the Global Aquaculture Alliance's Best Aquaculture Practices certification. The Fishin' Company is sponsoring training and offering financial incentives to a few model farms that invest in improvements. The Fishin' Company said it hopes that other farmed tilapia and seafood producers in China will follow suit once they see the financial benefit of responsible farming and supply seafood chain practices. "I challenge the rest of the industry to do it. And then the people who don't do it will be the ones on the hot seat," said Manish Kumar, founder and president of The Fishin' Company.

Bristol Seafood’s President and CEO Peter Handy will join the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) Board of Directors in 2017. "We are pleased Peter can invest the time in moving the seafood industry forward," said John Connelly, President of NFI. "He brings a fresh perspective to our Board discussions, one that will help improve the performance and perception of our efforts to help Americans enjoy a healthy seafood meal."

In other news, the 24th annual Alaska Symphony of Seafood is now asking for entries to compete for the most innovative seafood products of 2016. This year the category “Beyond the Egg” will again highlight any product made with different species of roe such as salmon, pollock, cod, herring, or urchin. Deadline to enter new products is January 6th, 2017.

Meanwhile, Marine Harvest Chile has invested in technologies that will mitigate the risk of algae blooms at its farmed salmon operations. The company also forecast its total salmon production to rise 6 percent in 2017.

Finally, we’ve put together a list of some of the most impactful stories reported out of the seafood industry in 2016. This year’s list is made up of the top two most read stories from each month in 2016. We understand that some of these stories are superseded by later events.

Seafood News and Urner Barry will be closed on January 2 in observance of the New Year. We look forward to another year of reporting all of the most pertinent news to come out of our industry in 2017.

We wish all you and your families a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
