Coronavirus : lessons from shrimp. A cure.

Yes the cure is prevention.

This weeks blogs will take people step by step through the lessons learnt.

……sorry but the heading will start with “Coronavirus : ” as this seems default mode on anything posted nowadays….

Aquaculture: A Regional Look at a Global Industry – opportunity gap in USA.

2018 here

and 2014 in link below..

Aquaculture: A Regional Look at a Global Industry | Cleantech Group

New report shows increasing momentum behind sustainable seafood | Marine Stewardship Council

With 15% of global fisheries MSC now – good improvement.

Fisheries are a peaked resource – so going sustainable is the only way to maintain current volumes from diminishing. Stewardship is necessary.

For real long term sustainable growth in seafood look to aquaculture. A non peaked resource.

Luckily there are also many other labelling/certification organisations and pressure groups promoting sustainable seafood from other grounds and via other assessments.

Climate change could change the taste of our favorite seafood (in Sweden!)

Warning – fished coldwater shrimp study NOT farmed. Do not extrapolate.

UN and IPCC probably already have – and Greta?

Yes via acidification and for wild fished coldwater prawn (cwp) – mainly p. borealis.

Not to worry farmed shrimp. Tastes here have already been manipulated by pelleted feeds…

……vannamei are sweet…before they get adulterated by processing that is.

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.

https://www.intrafish.com/marketplace/1842438/rabobank-asian-swine-fever-could-be-a-win-for-seafood

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.

Prawnmaster on Guardian UK Prawn article – EJF needs a serious reimagination on shrimp.

Yes a remake of Home Alone, amongst other films, are in the works at Disney.

Re-imagination seems to be flavour of the year.

Sadly the story for shrimp is not being reimagined at all with the same old myths being dug up and used over and over again.

Yes EJF.

Don’t have time or energy to go through this article and point out the factual error assumptions – yet again.

This is regurgitated fake blame/manipulated data – nothing “New” or newsworthy.

Only question for UK shrimp farmer – is it ethical to bring in and grow exotic shrimp from the US even from where it is not even endemic and what with the UK a signatory to the Rio Treaty (CBD)?

Is this not a GMO vannamei Pacific shrimp if from a USA breeding program and also an exotic to the US.

Why get your seed from the US? Apart from the UNOIE/EU live shrimp for culture trade law requirement.
