This conference proceedings highlights the key risks and opportunities that policy makers need to address relative to fisheries globalisation so that on the one hand, the opportunities that are created are not missed while, on the other, the risks are addressed appropriately. It presents a wide range of experiences and points of view from every part of the value chain of the fisheries industry, including fishers, processors, consumers, NGOs, restaurant and retail chains, as well as government and academic experts.



Chair's Summary Report

“Globalisation” is a key context underlying most current policy discussions in fisheries including both capture and aquaculture fisheries. Globalisation is a concept that implies a “system” of complex linkages among international participants, including states -- a system that needs to work effectively and responsibly. The challenges, opportunities and expectations accompanying increased globalisation are at the root of some of the most heated policy discussions taking place in fisheries.
