Accountability and Sustainability: our shared responsibility

At every major fisheries and aquaculture even around the globe, the buzzwords are accountability and sustainability. As we speak of the need to raise production levels from capture and culture fisheries to feed the world's growing population, the fact is that even partial success will be difficult to achieve without the corresponding will by stakeholders in the fisheries and seafood industries to work towards sustainability.

Author Dr Abdul Basir Kunhimohamad, Director

A major challenge is that of illegal, unregulated , and unreported fishing (IUU), which impacts negatively on marine ecosystems, fishing stocks, and food security as a whole. No amount of conservation and management measures or international agreements are effective until every nation commits to strengthening legislation and enforcement in this area.

Author Dr Abdul Basir Kunhimohamad, Director

Reflecting that concern, this issue of the INFOFISH International contains articles on IUU fisheries, and certification of seafoods which readers may find interesting.

Author

In terms of general interest, this magazine presents articles on Africa ( a continent which is often poorly understood), domestic shrimp consumption in Brazil, and the initiatives being undertaken by the Chinese government in ensuring food safety.
