Boston Seafood Show 2020 – turns away alt, fake or non seafood….

Well of course – you won’t find chicken, beef or dairy promoted at Boston Seafood Show either now would you…….as expected and crying foul will not help.

Dark side of plant-based food…..

hmmmm……..dark side……more about the money……vegan wars..

…on the cusp of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruption of agriculture in history.

Haha – shrimp aquaculture already is a disruptive force in seafood – disruptive to industrial fishing.

10% y-o-y growth – shrimp industry is looking at 7%. Plenty of room for all. Let’s keep to the bright side of the road

Fish farming can feed most of world…

Well of course if Norwegian Prime Minister says so….

Still shrimp farming is not to be overlooked….not only for its cost effective productivity and size compated to salmon but also because farmed shrimp are omniverous (so no need the insects) and have, unlike salmon, lifted millions out of poverty.

Game changers – the movie. Well worth a look at……but what about the whales?

Game changers the movie link here.

While it makes sense to follow the dietary route shown on the film documentary and fish farming gets short thrift there are no discussions on the prawn!

Lest we forget shrimp are not fish. A different narrative is slowly being grown around shrimp to take it to next level in healthy nutritional foods.

The premise of that ‘strong as an Ox’ – and who has seen Ox eat meat. Elephants and Rhinos the same. Yes great and all well and good for land based animals but, guess what, the biggest and most impressive mammal on this planet eats…….well yes shrimp !

Without shrimp one would not have whales.

Looking forward to developing further and seeing how shrimp performs in the protein space. You may be surprised.

Starting with don’t try this at home – until you have genetically reached your growth potential……..and then fine.

Aquaculture cleaning bots….

Urchin bots anyone – will be interesting to see.

Maybe they could be trained to clean salmon of sea-lice…..

……gotta catch them first I guess….didn’t the lasers work guys?

Intrafish – sorry poor mainstream seafood headline news – journo’s lack of business nous…

A win for seafood does not come off the back of the missfortunes of others.

The shrimp aquaculture industry does not support statements made like this one in Intrafish yesterday.

Reading the Rabobank report there is no mention at all of other proteins ‘winning’ out on this. They say clearly losses from ASF to lift “all protein boats”.

We, and the hundreds of thousands of shrimp farmers on the planet, would like to express our condolences and support to fellow farmers for what is currently happening with ASF.

Our shrimp industry has passed through three similar viral episodes over past three decades.

Intrafish journalists – please be a bit more professional on reporting sensitive issues and while we understand your close ties to a consolidated, concentrated (under investigation for price fixing) salmon fish sector, the seafood sector and farming sector has a far larger remit.
