Considered one of the forms of future world food, aquaculture has become one of the greatest strengths in British Colombia, in western Canada. This is one of the most developed economic activities accounting for almost 50 percent of world fishery products for food. Canada offers a variety of nearly 100 species of crustaceans, fish and marine plants cultivated in special farms, which reduce the gap between limited natural resources and the demand of the world population. Although Asian countries, led by China, India and Vietnam are the largest aquaculture producers in the world, the North American area has historical growth in recent years and has achieved a strong presence in global markets. The west coast of Canada has significantly developed these mariculture and therefore is home to one of the most important festivals of aquaculture to do business, make innovations, industry leaders, suppliers and international representatives throughout North America and Europe.

Translated from Spanish: 8/16/2016 9:50:01 BUSINESS By Olga Ojeda Lajud Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada, Aug 16 (Notimex) .- Considered one of the forms of future world food, aquaculture has become one of the greatest strengths in British Colombia, in western Canada. Canada already offers a range of about 100 species of crustaceans, fish and marine plants cultivated in special farms, which reduce the gap between limited natural resources and the demand of the world population. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) defines aquaculture as the activity focused on the farming of aquatic organisms in coastal and inland areas, involving intervention in the rearing process to enhance production. It is considered one of the most developed economic activities accounting for almost 50 percent of world fishery products for food. The west coast of Canada has significantly developed these mariculture and therefore is home to one of the most important festivals of aquaculture to do business, make innovations, industry leaders, suppliers and international representatives throughout North America and Europe. Although Asian countries, led by China, India and Vietnam are the largest aquaculture producers in the world, the North American area has historical growth in recent years and has achieved a strong presence in global markets. Therefore, recently, the so-called BC Shellfish and Food Festival was held in the Comox Valley, one of the regions of the west coast with strong presence of farmers, and brought together 30 leading research fields, development, business and government representatives and experts in innovation and mobilization of knowledge among institutions. According to FAO, aquaculture established a record high production and now provides nearly half of sea food that is intended for human consumption. FAO estimates that ratio will increase 62 percent by 2030. To date, almost 567 aquatic species cultivated worldwide. 80 percent of total production derived from animals such as omnivores and herbivores fish and shellfish.

Translated from Spanish. 15/08/2016 10:22:01 BUSINESS By Olga Ojeda Lajud Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada, Aug 15 (Notimex) .- The producers of fresh salmon farms in Canada increased their production and take advantage of natural problems faced by other major producers of this species in the world. 60 percent of the world's salmon production is performed in hatcheries, but an outbreak of parasites in the Norwegian Sea, the largest producer in the world and an alga that has slowed production in Chile, the second largest producer, have declined global production. Experts estimate that world production of farmed salmon could be reduced by seven percent, with very accessible prices for consumers. The problems prompted salmon production in other countries like Canada, the British Columbia coast has 109 salmon farms authorized and established a new record for exports produced in aquaculture farms. The coast of British Columbia produces about 75 thousand metric tons of salmon and exports 70 percent of its production around the world. Salmon farming began an experimental level in the 60s, but became industry in Norway in the 80s and 90s in Chile. While farmed salmon has faced criticism from those who consider it a threat to human health because it artificially breeding, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) promotes it as a possible solution to keep biodiversity of the oceans and meet global demand for protein. According to various Canadian farmers consulted, there is no definitive scientific, business or gastronomic arguments to demonize the consumption of farmed salmon because they assure farms must meet strict standards to ensure the quality of production. At present, salmon farming is also carried out in countries such as Australia, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Ireland and New Zealand, according to Global Salmon Initiative (GSI), which seeks to improve the sustainability of the sector.

Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada, Aug 14 (Notimex) .- Producers of farmed salmon farms Canada begin to see Mexico as an attractive market for the consumption of this product. Currently, due to the high price that has farmed salmon in Mexico and its citizens preference for fresh salmon consumed only in small volumes. "The cost of fresh fish is too high to have a mass market in Mexico. Is just developing, I think Mexico can be a big market in the future, but just being developed, "the CEO of Cermaq Salmon Studio, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, Fernando Villarroel said. In Mexico, a fillet of fresh salmon grown in farm costs about $ 12 per kilo, before processing, making it a luxury product. United States and Asian countries led by Japan are the major consumers of fresh farmed salmon farms, whose major world producers are Norway and Chile. Although demand in Mexico focuses on fresh frozen salmon which is imported from Chile, producers of fresh farmed salmon in Canada are beginning to see in the country an attractive market, especially to take advantage of the benefits of the Free Trade Agreement North America (NAFTA). "We have a Free Trade Agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico and are always looking for new markets, then I would love to see salmon in British Columbia in Mexico," said the executive director of the Association of salmon hatcheries in British Columbia, Jeremy Dunn . The production cycle of salmon is about three years. The first year of production is carried out in controlled environments freshwater and is then transported to cages in the marine environment, once it reaches an optimal size to processing plants is transported and prepared for sale. For consumers, most of the salmon fillets are offered, but you can also buy the whole fish. According to the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) explains, often several natural conditions must be met to ensure optimum production of farmed salmon as low water temperatures ranging between 8 ° C and 14oC, a protected coastal area and appropriate biological conditions. At present, salmon farming is also carried out in countries such as Australia, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Ireland and New Zealand. Source: http://www.notimex.gob.mx/ntxnotaLibre/224607
