Good morning, folks --

The farmed shrimp sector is squeezed between two competing forces: skyrocketing demand as markets rebound vs. logistics challenges driving up costs astronomically. The stories will give you the full picture of where things stand.

The CEO of whitefish giant Espersen warned shipping constraints, combined with general inflation 'on basically everything,' is creating a challenging outlook.

Sapphire still has an edge on price per kilo for its fish, though: here's what land-based genetically modified farmed salmon costs.

Feed giants Cargill, Biomar and Skretting still have some big concerns about the negotiations over Northeast Atlantic pelagic quotas.
