IFFO hosts meeting on how climate change impacts may affect fishmeal and fish oil supply chains (Neil Auchterlonie)
IFFO hosted a small meeting this week as a start to looking at how climate change impacts may affect fishmeal and fish oil supply chains into aquafeed (and thus, aquaculture development). At this stage the work looks at UK supply chains, but as with all seafood supply chains it is almost impossible to look at these from a single country perspective. Further work will very likely take into account other countries and regions, but this preliminary study takes a UK-perspective. The meeting was attended by representatives of the organisations Seafish, Cefas and the University of Stirling. We look forward to being able to share some of the outputs of this work with the members at some point in the future.
