This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 1 / 2021.

Ukraine celebrates its 30th anniversary of independence this year. As a young and developing country it is still implementing the reforms designed to build a modern and efficient state. Initial efforts catalysed the signing of the Ukraine–European Union Association Agreement in 2014, which entered into force in 2017 and which, when fully ratified, offers Ukraine duty-free access to the EU market, political and financial support, and access to EU research and other programmes. In return, Ukraine shall continue more firmly on its path of reform particularly in the legislative and judicial area, economic regulation, and finance.

This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 1 / 2021.

A German company, FIAP offers a range of equipment for the aquaculture sector from sophisticated recirculation systems to hand-held nets.

An aquaculture farm whether on land or at sea is a rough environment and the equipment used needs to be tough and reliable if the farm is to operate successfully. FIAP’s Profifeed BeltFeeder is a mechanically driven automatic feeder that can be used in the most demanding environments to deliver feed or other inputs, such as medicines or additives, to the water. The material can take any form from dust to large pellets. The feeder is started manually and can be set to run for 4, 12, or 24 hours during which time it will steadily dispense the medium enabling extremely ef- ficient workflows.

Algae offer promising solutions to many challenges

EM1 21 AQ AlgaEuropeThis article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 1 / 2021.

On a global scale European production of algae is very modest, but companies and research bodies find that algae can contribute to addressing important issues faced in Europe including sustainability, human and animal health, and plastic pollution. The positive role algae can play in these and other fields were among the topics discussed at the AlgaEurope conference.

The AlgaEurope conference is an annual event that brings together industry and academia involved in algae research, cultivation, and application to discuss the further development of the sector in Europe and beyond. The forum provides companies, established academics, budding scientists, and regional, national, and European policy-makers with an opportunity to network while exchanging knowledge and experience about algae. The conference is organised by the European Algae Biomass Association and DLG Benelux, part of the German Agriculture Society, DLG.

The fisheries and aquaculture sector in Bulgaria

EM6 20 BGFish and seafood production in Bulgaria stem primarily from capture fisheries in the Black Sea, and freshwater and marine aquaculture. Freshwater catches, which come mainly from the Danube, are nugatory. Black Sea catches have remained stable over the last years, while production from fish farms, of carps and trout in particular, has grown steadily.

EM6 20 PLNew product forms respond to market demands

This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 6 / 2020.

Alterations in climate patterns, developments in the market for carp products, and shifts in consumer profiles are all having an impact on the way carp is produced and sold in Poland.

Pond fish farming in Poland dates back to at least the 12th century, when monks produced fish in earthen ponds. Over the next 500 years ponds were built that varied in size from 100 ha to 1,000 ha. The biggest ponds were subsequently divided into smaller, more manageable units and today the area available for fish farming is some 60,000 ha. A variety of freshwater species are produced in polyculture in these ponds including common carp, bighead carp, grass carp, silver carp, catfish, pike, tench, and pike-perch. Production has shown a gently increasing trend over recent years and stood at 26,500 tonnes in 2018, according to FAO.

EM6 20 TECH FIAPA one-stop shop for fish farmers

This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 6 / 2020.

FIAP, based in Ursensollen, Bavaria, has been supplying aquaculture equipment to the industry as well as to private customers since it was founded in 1978. Today it has expanded its range to include water gardens and all the accessories and services that go with them.

As the aquaculture industry grows and develops – in 2025 some 57% of the fish for human consumption will come from fish farming up from 50% in 2016 – it will, particularly in parts of Europe, get increasingly complex and sophisticated. Driving this development as well as responding to it will be companies like FIAP that has made a name for itself developing and supplying equipment to the industry. The family-owned company has existed for over 40 years and today is run by two partners representing the second generation of owner-managers.

EM6 20 AQ MemshrimpPioneering cultivation of a new species

This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 6 / 2020.

A company in Turkey is growing whiteleg shrimp from imported broodstock. The experience and knowledge gained will be used to catalyse the development of a shrimp industry in the country.

Turkish catches of wild shrimp are dominated by deep-water rose shrimp (Parapenaeus longirostris). This species accounted for three quarters of the catch of shrimp, prawn and lobster in 2019 or 3,850 tonnes. In addition, the country imported 2,150 tonnes of shrimp in various forms. Shrimp are popular in Turkey which is why it is surprising, that despite an 8,000 km long coastline and a hugely successful aquaculture sector, shrimp farming has never established itself.
