Miðvikudagur 15.12.

13:00-14:15 - Ecosystem based fisheries management: What does it take?

The Reykjavik Conference in 2001 on "Responsible Fisheries in the Marine Ecosystem " requested FAO to produce guidelines on ecosystem approach (EAF)
to fisheries management. The lecure will discuss the guidelines, various
initiatives aiming at ecosystem approaches to fisheries management and
particularly how the fish industry can comply with such new requirements.

Fimmtudagur 16.12.

13:15-14:30 - Recent developments in international fish trade.

Fish and fishery products are the most internationally traded foodstuffs in
the world with about 37% (live weight) being sold across national borders. In
value terms over 50% of this trade originates in developing countries and has
thus become a very important source of income for them as well as food. The
lecture will discuss the main developments in international fish trade and
the increasing demands placed on fish exporters, such as sanitary
requirements as well as various social and environmental demands.


Föstudagur 17.12.
10:30-11:45 - Risk-based food safety approach.

The Sanitatry and Phytosanitary Agreement of the World Trade Organization
from 1995 states that standards and regulations to protect the health of
animals, plants and humans must be science based and risk based. In that way
the basis is laid against arbitary standards that are technical barriers to
trade. The lecture will discuss developments in establishing risk based
standards and regulations for fish and fishery products.
