Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
BANGLADESH - As USAID’s annual letter this year notes, in development it is no longer enough to teach a farmer to grow a new crop—or in this case, to fish. Our work isn’t done until we help a farmer learn to run a successful business too. This is precisely what is happening in Bangladesh, writes Dylan Butler, Information Officer, USAID Office of Food for Peace.

The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2014

The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2014 | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
"Fisheries and aquaculture play a vital role in achieving FAO’s Strategic Objectives of eliminating hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. As reported in this edition of The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, people have never consumed so much fish or depended so greatly on the sector for their well-being as today. As the demand for fish increases, the sector is also striving to be more productive and sustainable and to enable more inclusive and efficient systems while reducing rural poverty and enhancing the resilience of livelihoods to disasters, crises and climate change."
John Bostock's insight:

The latest edition of SOFIA is essential reading for all students of aquaculture and fisheries!

Short Course: Fisheries governance

Short Course: Fisheries governance | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
The number of the world's fish stocks in trouble today seems to exceed the number of those in good shape. The causes are many, but overfishing is a major one – for which fisheries managers are often blamed. Their complexity, diversity and dynamics, and the involvement of a large number of stakeholders, make fisheries difficult to govern.

Short Course: Ecosystem approach to fisheries

Short Course: Ecosystem approach to fisheries | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
Maintaining healthy ecosystems and a vibrant fishing sector is of paramount importance to all coastal regions in the world. Making sure that the interests of the fishery sector are considered and represented versus the claims and interests of other user groups, is one of the tasks of the fisheries manager. The ecosystem approach takes the wider ecosystem and its interactions with fisheries into consideration.

MSC opens final round of consultation on fishery standard review — MSC

MSC opens final round of consultation on fishery standard review — MSC | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

This is the second, and final, opportunity for stakeholders to offer their views on proposals for changes to the fishery standard. Stakeholders will also have the opportunity to comment on other proposals for program improvements, including changes to the fisheries assessment process designed to reduce the time, cost and complexity of certification assessments. An early stage public consultation on the fisheries standard review topics took place in spring this year.

John Bostock's insight:

This could be a useful exercise for students of fisheries to engage with.
