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.
As the FAO’s Code of Conduct, adopted by FAO member states to promote sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, will celebrate its 25th anniversary next year, we can only rejoice that it has certainly been a major inspiration in the reform process of many countries’ regulations. 91% of the small pelagic fish species that are predominantly used for fishmeal and fish oil production are now “reasonably well managed or better” (Sustainable Fisheries Partnership report – 2018).
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.
