he news this week emanating from the United Kingdom’scompetition authority, the Competition Commission, isthat provisional clearance has been granted for Pan Fish’sproposed acquisition of Marine Harvest.In a summary of provisional findings released on November7, the commission indicated that it had reached the conclusionthat the acquisition would not result in a substantial lessening of competition.Pan Fish’s acquisition of Marine Harvest, together with FjordSeafood, now makes it the largest salmon farming company in theworld by far, accounting for approximately 25 percent of globalharvest volume (using 2006 figures).Of course acquisitions and mergers are nothing new to aglobal salmon farming industry where consolidation is a by-wordfor survivability in an increasingly competitive marketplace.Economies of scale make larger and larger farming units, andhence larger and larger companies, inevitable. Such consolidationensures that the industry remains viable and continues to employ large numbers of people in economically fragile and oftengeographically isolated areas.But what about fish health? Recent changes in the salmonfarming industry have led me to ponder on the knock-oneffects of consolidation on this important aspect of productionmanagement. Thankfully, it seems to me that in the fish welfareand health arena, the effects are overwhelmingly positive.Larger companies typically investmore money in fish health programmesand expertise and related research anddevelopment. They also tend to leadthe way in developing best practicesin fish health management at a very practical level.Not only that, it would seem logical toassume that the increasing prominenceof Area Management Agreements and the like will be aided by areduction in the number of companies operating in particularlocalities. More consistent strategic management in this respectcan only be a good thing.I wonder also how the pharmaceutical companies will viewan increasingly consolidated global industry? Competition inthis market is very tight indeed, and is therefore dominatedby a small number of key players. One can only assumethat competition will increase in the relatively small marketsegments where companies have products that compete directly for market share.So, as always, changes in industry structures result in numerousopportunities for positive developments, and in this respect thefish health arena is no different. One thing’s for sure - industry consolidation should make for interesting developments in themonths and years ahead!
