What’s happening in aquaculture in the UK and around the world JENNY HJUL – EDITOR

Happy New Year


e start the New Year with a look at some innovations in fish feed from across the world. The last time we talked to the Drew brothers of Cape Town about their black soldier fly product they had just scaled up from a pilot project. Since then they have undergone a rapid expansion on their home turf and are launching into other markets, including Europe, which has at last changed its legislation on insect feed. A joint venture between American and Brazilian entrepreneurs resulted in another exciting development in fish feed, microalgae produced in commercial quantities from sugar cane and distributed through one of the big players in the salmon feed business, BioMar. Meanwhile, Aller Aqua is building on its success in Egypt with a new factory beside Lake Kariba in Zambia, an emerging hub of sub-Saharan Africa’s aquaculture industry. Offering insights closer to home, experts from Norway’s DNB Bank talk to Fish Farmer about super cycles and growing the salmon sector - in Iceland. In Scotland, this year could prove to be a turning point as the industry’s vision, made public last October, is transformed, we hope, into action by the powers that be. The team here will begin 2017 without, at least for a couple of months, our colleague William Dowds, who will be convalescing after an operation. I’m sure all his industry friends will wish him, as we do, a very speedy recovery.
