Negative perception on seafood sustainability in the UK, but room for change | Undercurrent News

Negative perception on seafood sustainability in the UK, but room for change | Undercurrent News | Seafood | Scoop.it

Headlines at the press focusing on overfishing and pollution are having a negative impact on the perception of seafood sustainability in the UK.

The media tends to generalize or present selective interpretations of the state of the world’s fisheries which can distort the actual picture, Karen Green, of Seafish, said at the fourth Billingsgate sustainable seafood awards on Nov. 20.

Taking figures from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Green gave an example on how data interpretation can change the picture given:

“You can say 30% of the world’s fish stocks are overexploited or you can say 70% of the world’s fish stocks are providing maximum benefit to feed the population or have the potential to produce more fish.”

According to data from FAO on global trends in world marine stocks since 1974 to 2009, whilst there are far fewer underexploited stocks than overexploited, the proportion of fully exploited stocks remains constant at 50%, which evidences signs of stabilization.

This may indicate that improved management systems and better understanding of the dynamics of marine ecosystems are starting to create greater stability in word fisheries resources, though there is still considerable work to be done, according to Seafish.

In 2012, the UK fishing fleet landed 627,000 metric tons of fish with a value of £770 million, a 5% increase in quantity but a 7% decrease in value when compared to 2011.

Even when these figures are prompting an issue, the UK seafood industry’s major focus should be on reducing discards, as 74,600t or 25% of all fish caught in the UK are discarded, Green said.

Third party certification schemes measuring sustainably standards and projects such as the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) to create benchmark for sustainability labels or the voluntary code of conduct for more consistent seafood labeling, were highlighted as the right path to promote sustainability among the seafood industry.

At the consumer level, education and campaigns on seafood health benefits addressing families – such as Seafish’s ‘Fish is the dish’ – can play also an important role on changing people’s perception.

“Consumers are starting to talk spontaneously about sustainability, we are already seeing a change,” Green said.
