As a result of a range of previous activities, and most recently brought into sharp relief by the delivery of a project on South East Asian fisheries jointly funded by IFFO, the Marine Ingredients Organisation, and the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), IFFO fully recognises the importance of Fisheries Improver Programmes (FIPs) and their potential to drive positive change in fisheries management and, consequently, sustainability. Together with IFFO RS, the Global Standard for Responsible Supply, IFFO calls for increased collaboration among stakeholders in regional fisheries and throughout the seafood supply chains. That increased collaboration will help facilitate the development and initiation of FIPs.
The first overarching study for the South-East Asian fishmeal industry provides recommendations to move forward in achieving a sustainable supply chain
The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) and IFFO, the Marine Ingredients Organisation, have today released the findings from a joint-funded project which improves the understanding of the fisheries of South East Asia which supply raw material for fishmeal production. The report was produced by Duncan Leadbitter (Fish Matter Pty Ltd) after approximately 10 months of data gathering, using both publicly available information and in-country sources.
Our Members’ Meeting in Madrid, followed by the IFFO workshop in Zhuhai (China), gave all our members and delegates a very detailed overview of the marine ingredients market and quality trends as well as deep insights on climate change impacts and the way to keep improving our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
IFFO is aware of the recent publication of the report “Until the seas run dry: How industrial aquaculture is plundering the ocean” by the Changing Markets Foundation.
