Editorial: Establishing A Safe And Sustainable Fisheries

Following the meeting in Thailand last week, the first global guidelines for aquaculture certification have been adopted by the Sub-Committee on Aquaculture of the Committee on Fisheries, part of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation.

The guidelines, which are non-binding, cover animal health, food safety, the environment and socio-economic issues relating to aquaculture workers. They will now go to the Committee on Fisheries when it meets in Rome in January 2011 for approval.

Earlier in the week, fishing ministers from across the North Sea called for fundamental changes to fisheries management.

Ministers set out the Ardoe Declaration, which looks at managing catches, reducing discards as well as regionalising fisheries management.

Ambitious reforms of the Common Fishery Policy are planned, as political leaders, businesses and conservationists from EU countries have all agreed the need for progressive reform.

EU Fisheries Commissioner Maria Damanaki said that three-quarters of EU fish stocks are fully fished or over exploited and the economic viability of the fishing sector is under pressure.

She stressed that by working together, fishermen, industry, scientists, governments and non-governmental organisations can deliver fisheries that are both sustainable and profitable.

The reform of the Common Fisheries Policy will be discussed at a conference in Brussels on 16 November 2010.
