Could aquaculture solve Africa's fishing crisis? asks the Guardian.

The answer is of course yes, but only if there is a shift away from farm ponds. For real impact on fish production, WorldFish and the FAO argue there needs to be a greater emphasis on smallholders joining forces and helping to develop a commercial fish farming sector.

This article is written by Caspar van Vark, a contributor to the paper's part of the Guardian's Development Professionals Network, a mini site where experts can share expertise. There are some fascinating articles by industry experts about the challenges and solutions to key debates int he development industry.

Congratulations to the NAFC Marine Centre, Scotland, which has been crowned aquaculture supplier of the year at The Crown Estate’s Scottish Marine Aquaculture Awards.

 

The event celebrates the achievements and successes of an industry that is vitally important to Scotland’s coastal communities.

Commenting on the win, Alan Bourhill, senior development manager, NAFC said, “These awards are renowned for recognising ‘the best of the best’ in the aquaculture industry, so we were delighted to receive two shortlist nominations, but to go ahead and win an award is a fantastic achievement for the Centre.

“I am very pleased that the innovation, professionalism and commitment to customer care shown by our aquaculture development team over the past few years has resulted in the award of 'Aquaculture Supplier of the Year'.

“We have been committed to developing and delivering an industry-focused bespoke portfolio of aquaculture courses, so to receive this type of validation and support from our industry clients is very satisfying and a great endorsement of our training products and services.”

The BC Salmon Farmers Association is inviting the public to take part in the Summer Farm Tour Program. The tours begin June 27, 2013 and run each Thursday until mid-September.

“A lot of people are curious about salmon farming,” said Mary Ellen Walling, Executive Director of the BC Salmon Farmers Association. “Taking a tour is a great way for people to learn about our industry and talk directly to the workers.”

The tours depart from Discovery Launch Water Taxis in Campbell River at 9 a.m. and last about four hours. The boat ride takes visitors through Seymour Narrows – offering beautiful scenery and a chance to see marine wildlife such as seals, otters and whales.

“We always get a lot of great questions from people on the tours,” said David Minato, community relations coordinator. “The farmers are very proud of the work they do and they really enjoy being able to share that passion with the public.”

Tours include lunch and cost $50 per person.
