Bristol Bay Sockeye Harvest Begins Amid Concern for Chinook and No Early Price Commitments 
It is late June and the energy in Dillingham and Naknek has shifted to high gear as the forecasted return of 51 million sockeye make their way to the fishing grounds in Bristol Bay. This annual migration — one of the largest in the world — is impacted this year by two dynamics. First, concern about Chinook salmon in the Nushagak River, where escapement goals have not been met in several years. Second, although speculation has been intense, there are no pre-season offers for an ex-vessel … 
Fishery Disaster Declarations Approved in Louisiana and Mississippi
Yesterday, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo announced that fishery disasters occurred in multiple Louisiana and Mississippi fisheries in 2020.
“Sustainable fisheries are vital to our nation’s ocean economy and fishery disasters directly harm our local communities when they occur,” Raimondo said in a statement. “These disaster determinations allow us to get fishing communities in the Gulf of Mexico the financial assistance they need to mitigate impacts of disasters, restore fisheries and help prevent future disasters.” 
The Mississippi request was due to historical levels of flooding that made the Bonnet Carre …
With Prices Low, Many Fishermen Are Skipping Southeast’s Dungeness Crab Season
The Southeast Alaska Dungeness crab fishery opened on June 15. But roughly a quarter of the fleet in Petersburg is skipping the season. That’s partly because many of them are expecting low prices.
Two days before crabbing started, Petersburg fisherman Paul Menish was in the cabin of his boat, the Hi Nikki, speculating on crab prices.
“Sounds like prices aren’t going to be as low as we were quoted three weeks ago,” said Menish. “Now, it’s just rumors, but that the prices will be for Dungeness…
Top Shrimp Exporter Chief Says Vietnam Production Costs Too High
Vietnamese shrimp production costs are too high, making them less competitive in the global market, the chairman of leading seafood export company Minh Phu Seafood Corp. has said.
Le Van Quang, speaking on June 23 at the 2023 Vietnam Shrimp Forum, said the costs of shrimp of the size that make up 50-60 to a kilogram are US$2.3-2.4 in Ecuador, $3.4-3.8 in India and $4.8-5 in Vietnam. They are the world’s three leading shrimp exporting countries.
The main reason for the high…
Independence Day Spending On Food Predicted To Hit A Record High
Let them grill! This Independence Day is expected to hit a record high when it comes to food spending. 
The National Retail Federation is predicting that total spending on food items will reach a whopping $9.5 billion in 2023. This figure is up from $7.7 billion in 2022. Breaking it down by household, that figure comes out to $93.34, a jump from $84.12 in 2022. 
So, how are consumers celebrating? 65% of those polled say they will be participating in cookouts, barbecues and picnics…

Endangered Species Act Developments: Court Finds Species Do Not Get The “Benefit Of The Doubt” 
Two recent developments may have meaningful impacts on the implementation of Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). First, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion in Maine Lobstermen’s Association v. National Marine Fisheries Service and held that the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) may not give species the benefit of the doubt when relying on partial or incomplete data.[1] Second, NMFS and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) proposed revisions to the rules implementing…
Lawmakers Look to Increase Coast Guard’s Pacific Footprint
A $91.5 billion bill making its way through Congress funding programs under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security includes provisions to continue supporting an increased U.S. Coast Guard presence in the Pacific.
The bill includes $335 million requested by U.S. Rep. Ed Case, who represents urban Honolulu and sits on the House Appropriations Committee, for the acquisition of four new Sentinel-class Fast Response Cutters for the Coast Guard to support operations in the Pacific.
The measure also includes language encouraging the Coast Guard to continue stepping up its…
How Could Sooner-Than-Expected Russian Defeat Impact Shipping?

The situation in Russia and Ukraine — and its potential effect on global trade flows — is changing fast.
On Friday, the EU released details on its new sanctions package targeting Russia’s crude exports and containerized imports. On Saturday, mutinous mercenaries of the Wagner Group made it to within 300 miles of Moscow, raising questions on Russian President Vladmir Putin’s grip on power. Meanwhile, Ukraine is making gains on the battlefield.
Scenarios on how ocean trades would change postwar, and how and when Ukraine will be rebuilt, remain very hypothetical…

The Buffet Is Back, Stretching Dollars and Slinging Crab Legs

The buffet got creamed during the pandemic. Even when diners crept back into restaurants covered in hand sanitizer, a model of eating based on shared serving spoons and food seasoned with the breath of strangers seemed like a goner.
But the all-you-can-eat buffet, that symbol of America’s love of choice and penchant for excess, will not be denied. From piles of crab legs at swank Las Vegas casinos to pans of fried chicken in small-town Southern restaurants, the buffet is back, baby…
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Agrees to Pay Back Rent at Harborplace to Settle Lawsuit
The owners of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. will pay $2 million in back rent after the eatery abruptly closed last year in Harborplace’s Light Street pavilion.
The payment was detailed this month in settlement filings of a lawsuit by the Harborplace receiver over the national restaurant’s departure and failure to pay rent for more than two years and caps a sometimes bitter 10-year run for the seafood eatery. Bubba Gump first opened in 2012 in 20,000 square feet once occupied by…
More Than 90% of Aquatic Food Production Vulnerable to Climate Change
A study shows that more than 90% of global ‘blue’ food production, both in capture fisheries and aquaculture, faces substantial risks from climate change.
Global aquatic foods, also called ‘blue’ and defined as fish, shellfish, plants and algae from fisheries, essential for more than 3.2 billion people, now face major challenges due to climate change. A new study published in Nature highlights that more than 90% of global blue food production faces substantial risks from environmental change, with major producers in Asia and the United States…
Slimy and Spreading Fast. Shellfish Farms Face Biofouling ‘Invasion’
Scientists are monitoring dozens of sites in Nova Scotia and southern New Brunswick to see if the latest warm winter in Atlantic Canada accelerated the spread of slimy marine invertebrates.
Six invasive sea squirt — or tunicate — species have become established in Nova Scotia in the last decade. Two more are believed to have arrived.
The creatures cling to anything they come into contact with and have become a major problem in the shellfish aquaculture sector. They are 95 per cent water and heavy, weighing down ropes and increasing…

Sanitary Emergency Hits Colombian Fish Farming Sector’s Wallet
In recent days, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, together with the Colombian Agricultural Institute (ICA) declared a national sanitary emergency in the Colombian aquaculture sector.
