The FAO ambition for a Blue Transformation is underpinned by a conviction that food security lies in aquaculture, coupled with better fisheries management. Marine ingredients —fishmeal and fish oils derived from both whole fish and byproducts—are main ingredients in aqua feeds. In a world of greater food sovereignty and less global trade in food, how can the responsibility of marine ingredients be enhanced while supporting the growth of the aquaculture sector? The Global Roundtable on Marine Ingredients, founded by The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership and IFFO-The Marine Ingredients Organisation, has initiated several projects to increase the availability of sustainable marine ingredients and drive environmental and social improvements in key reduction fisheries globally. The panelists will provide an overview of three of these projects: from supporting the further development of fishery improvement projects in India to exploring the life cycle assessment of marine ingredients and supporting efforts aimed at ensuring food security in West Africa.
