As the World Water Day was celebrated around the world on March 22nd, there is a growing awareness of our oceans’ fundamental importance to life on earth. Oceans are home to millions of species, each of them playing a specific role as global ecological regulator, in climate regulation and in food security.
On February 13th 2019, the NGO Oceana published a Press Release on the production of illegal fishmeal in Peru. The communication cites the results of an Oceana report into the diversion of approximately 150,000 tonnes of anchovy from direct human consumption into the manufacture of fishmeal.
Any illegal activities in fisheries supplying raw material for fishmeal manufacture are obviously unacceptable, and IFFO recommends the adoption of the IFFO Responsible Supply scheme, which is the only fishmeal plant certification scheme, in tackling raw material supply issues.
