Governing Sustainable Seafood
by Simon Bush and Peter Oosteveer:
This book takes into account the rise of social movements through environmental non-governmental organisations, the nature and perceived limits of government regulation within and beyond the state, and the promise of market-based approaches to governance such as ecolabelling.”
The seminar (recorded May 12) opens with a short presentation outlining the research of the AGI provided by Dr Simon Bush, Wageningen University & Research. This is followed by video opinions from around the world.
An interactive discussion on the topic follows with a diverse panel of experts including Randy Brummett (World Bank), Han Han (China Blue Sustainability Institute), Wendy Norden (Seafood Watch), Anakarina Pérez Oropeza (Forest Stewardship Council International) and Dave Robb (SeaFurther™, Cargill Aqua Nutrition). Eddie Allison, Director of Science and Research, Aquatic Food Systems, WorldFish closes the seminar.
FISHERIES PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
In developing the AGIs, we were inspired by the Fisheries Performance Indicators (FPIs) as designed by James Anderson and colleagues from the University of Florida and the University of Washington. The FPIs provide a tool to assess the environmental, economic and social sustainability of fishery management systems
