    International seafood trade: challenges and opportunities. FAO/University of Akureyri Symposium. 1 - 2 February 2007, Akureyri, Iceland. 2009

    These are the proceedings from the Symposium on International Seafood Trade: Challenges and Opportunities, held in Akureyri, Iceland, from 1 to 2 February 2007, organized by the University of Akureyri, Faculty of Business and Science in collaboration with the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department. The meeting included a range of views regarding the risks and challenges inherent to the recent developments in international seafood trade with views from government officials, busi ness representatives and academia. The symposium highlighted that the seafood sector is extremely dynamic and is increasingly becoming a global sector. Risks include the pressure of global demand on capture fisheries that are often overexploited, meeting the higher sanitary and phytosanitary requirements being set by the markets and the development of voluntary ecolabels. Opportunities include better management of marine resources, further development of the aquaculture sector, a dvancement of technology to meet sanitary and phytosanitary requirements and enhancement of the value-added sector in developing countries.

    Sixth World Congress on Seafood Safety, Quality and Trade. Sydney, Australia, 14–16 September 2005. 2007

    Fish and fish products are among the most traded food commodities: close to 40 percent by volume ends up in international markets. Yet around three-quarters of fish exports finish up in just three markets: the European Union, Japan and the United States of America. China is an increasingly important player both as an exporter and an importer. Consumers expect that the fish they have access to will be safe and of acceptable quality, regardless of where they are produced or ultimat ely consumed. This has given rise to issues regarding fish quality and safety, international trade, risk analysis and harmonization of standards. These and other issues are addressed in this document, which represents the proceedings of the Sixth World Congress on Seafood Safety, Quality and Trade held in Sydney, Australia from 14 to 16 September 2005.The Congress was held under the auspices of the International Association of Fish Inspectors, in collaboration with FAO and the Un ited Nations Industrial Development Organization.

    Upgrading and Strengthening Capacity of the Government Fish Quality Control Laboratory in Eritrea - TCP/ERI/3703 2022

    With fish exports increasing both in volume and variety, the Eritrean fish inspection and quality assurance authories face challenges regarding organization, resources, logistics and training in order to comply with the international quality requirements for exported fish Nevertheless, the maritime environment of Eritrea is very favorable for international trade and thus for local fisheries development The sustainable yield has been estimated as varying between 20 000 and 55 000 tonnes However, the significant decline of the fishery sector over recent decades has inevitably resulted in the loss of the institutional memory, skills and experience necessary for its management The current lack of appropriate inspection and quality assurance arrangements potentially puts at risk Eritrea’s lucrative seafood trade, which is developing rapidly, and traditional cured products, which are often a vital mainstay to the economies of some countries in the region Without clear trade channels being established, the development of promising export opportunities are not encouraged, which will inevitably have adverse impacts on agricultural productivity and endanger economic growth and the livelihoods of the vulnerable smallholder farmers dependent on this sector for their well being In addition, decreasing productivity substantially impacts regional and national food security Hence, this project aimed to support the acquisition of key equipment and reagents required to train laboratory staff from the government laboratory at Massawa to further develop their analytical skills, with a focus on microbiology, chemistry and general laboratory management, to facilitate efforts towards accreditation Eritrea was granted provisionary approval to start exporting fish and fishery products predicated on the Government laboratory meeting the international requirements, conditions and processes for export As part of a longer term investment in training, this project complemented previous support to the College of Marine Sciences and Technology ( and contributed to the MMR’s overall fish inspection capacity by specifically strengthening the Quality Control Laboratory ( to meet international requirements for fish export.
