From FiS March 23 news, the total production of fishmeal and fish oil in January 2021 exceeded the level of the same period last year. The raw materials of Peru, Chile, the Nordic region and African countries performed better than 2020, while the output of the United States fell sharply because of Alaska’s The landing situation was poor. In fact, the U.S. herring fishing season will officially start in April.

   Due to the above-average catches in Peru and Chile, the total production of fishmeal and fish oil (including salmon meal and fish oil) in January 2021 was much higher than that in January 2020.
   Around the Spring Festival, China’s domestic fishmeal production was suppressed. After the holiday, fishmeal factories in Shandong and Zhejiang have resumed production, but due to lack of raw materials, fishmeal factories in Liaoning will not be able to resume production until September. Compared with the first quarter of 2020, domestic fishmeal supply may not improve in the first quarter of 2021.
   At the beginning of this year, pig feed production showed an upward trend, but the recent African swine fever epidemic seems to have affected pig feed consumption in February and March.
  As the aquaculture industry is still in the off-season, the production of aquatic feed is still at a low level. Starting from the second half of March, the production of aquaculture is expected to rebound. The rise in the price of aquatic products indicates that the demand for seafood is strong thanks to the recovery of China’s food services.
