Retailers make landmark sustainable seafood pledge | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Leading British supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer (M&S) are among a cross-sector cluster of organisations that have voluntarily signed an agreement to protect a key Arctic region from industrial fishing, by preventing suppliers from expanding cod fisheries into pristine marine waters. 

Signed by an alliance of global fishing stakeholders including the catchers, processors, retailers and foodservice, this new agreement will ensure limitations to industrial fishing while robust scientific research takes place in the largely unexplored ocean environment of the Barents and Norwegian Seas. 

The list of signatories also includes Asda, Morrison’s, McDonald's, Birds Eye and Young's Seafood.

It also further solidifies the Aramark commitment to support sustainable fisheries and solutions that promote healthier oceans for generations to come.

Salmon and Trout Conservation Scotland (S&TCS) has claimed new figures for wild fish catches on the west coast highlight an adverse impact of salmon farms in the area. 

S&TCS, which describes itself as a group dedicated to the protection of “fisheries, fish stocks and the wider aquatic environment for the public benefit”, said yesterday its analysis showed the five-year average salmon catch for the west coast rod fishery – from Cape Wrath to Mull of Kintyre, including the Hebrides – had declined to 76% of its 1970 value by 2014.

Friend of The Sea Launches new International sustainable shipping standard | Aquaculture Directory

Friend of The Sea Launches new International sustainable shipping standard | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Friend of the Sea has recently launched the new international certification for sustainable shipping. Two large global shipping companies, GreenSea and Seatrade, audited by the third party auditor BMT Surveys, were found compliant with the Friend of the Sea criteria and have achieved the certification. 

“Merchant shipping is currently carrying more than 90% of international trade. Although some shipping companies have already implemented several strict sustainability measures, there are still many of them which don’t even comply with the minimum requirements,” explains Paolo Bray, Founder and Director of Friend of the Sea. 

“This is why an international certification for sustainable shipping – such as Friend of the Sea - is fundamental for producers and retailers to easily select environmentally friendly shipping companies. This is even more important for companies which claim sustainability of their seafood’s origin.”

Northern Cod stocks slowly increasing | Aquaculture Directory

Northern Cod stocks slowly increasing | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The Atlantic cod stocks are returning, but there's still a long way to go before a large-scale commercial fishery becomes viable again. 

That's the finding of new research by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which shows that cod stocks in the Northern region are on the way towards leaving the "critical" designation. 

"The stock is still not up to the level that it was, say, back in the 1980s when we had a substantial fishery," John Brattey, a cod research scientist with DFO, said in an interview with CBC Radio's The Broadcast.

New Zealand hoki fisheries meet international best practice standard for sustainability | Aquaculture Directory

New Zealand hoki fisheries meet international best practice standard for sustainability | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Following a report from the University of British Columbia (UBC), the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) has confirmed that the New Zealand hoki fisheries meets the high requirements of the MSC Fisheries Standard, widely recognised as the world’s most credible assessment of the sustainability of wild-caught seafood. 

In 2001, New Zealand’s hoki fisheries became the first large-scale whitefish fisheries to achieve MSC certification, and have since been re-certified twice in 2007 and 2012. 

To achieve certification, fisheries must demonstrate to a third party certifier that they: ensure the long-term sustainability of fish stocks; minimise impacts on the marine environment; and are well managed, with effective governance and enforcement systems. Certification requires robust evidence to demonstrate that requirements are met.
