FAO’s COFI fish trade session will focus on sustainability

The sixteenth session of FAO’s COFI Sub-Committee on Fish Trade will focus on social sustainability in fisheries value chains and its link to trade.

It’s an issue which is always gaining greater momentum and member countries requested its official inclusion into the agenda to ensure that fish reaching consumers’ plates is harvested in an environmentally sustainable manner.

“Its official inclusion in our agenda will also ensure we can provide decent work to the men and women who work in fisheries and aquaculture around the world along its long value chain,” said Audun Lem, FAO deputy-director and secretary to COFI-FT.

Another item on the official agenda for the first time one is the effects of climate change on future fish supply, trade and consumption.

This apparently reflects the increasingly visible role fisheries and aquaculture are playing in international climate change meetings and negotiations.

Other focuses at the session include challenges related to Ciguatera fish poisoning, blue growth, social and human-rights issues, access to trade and the Fisheries Transparency Initiative (FiTI).

The COFI Sub-committee on Fish Trade is held every two years and is open to FAO Committee on Fisheries member countries. This year it is being held in Busan, the Republic of Korea, from 4 to 8 September.
