IFFO, The Marine Ingredients Organisation, has released its Annual Report, which shows how it has been working with the aim to facilitate the understanding of the Industry’s contribution to the product value. This year marks the 60th year of IFFO as a knowledge centre focused on gathering and sharing information with stakeholders.
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.
Quite a few articles were published this summer about a school of thought which seems to have become once again fashionable among some intellectuals, scientists and politicians: degrowth. Degrowth doesn’t have a single definition but clearly aims at limiting economic activity in order to fight climate change. This seems clearly at odds with the dual growth of both global population and productivity. Growth isn’t always more. It can also be better. It triggers innovation and contributes to increased competition and efficiency. Institutions such as the United Nations or the OECD refer to this as “Green growth”.
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.
