    Fish Dependence Day – Netherlands, Netherlands

    Fish Dependence is the day on which imports have to be relied upon because national catches would have run out if only home-caught fish had been eaten since 1 January.

    Netherlands relies on imports for approximately four months per year, to satisfy domestic demand for fish products.

    Fish dependence is a powerful concept that illustrates how far over consumption outstrips domestic resources. One way to illustrate this trend is to represent a country’s degree of self-sufficiency as a calendar day – the day in the year when a country has consumed its own supply and must begin sourcing its products from elsewhere, hence the term ‘fish dependence day’. For the EU this date is currently 11th July, after which the EU depends on foreign resources. Fish dependence day is calculated by New Economics Foundation (NEF).

    Demonstration of IEA for Baltic fish stocks, Askö, Sweden

    Demonstration of the feasibility of integrated ecosystem assessment and advice for Baltic Sea fish stocks.

    The Baltic Sea Center writes:
    “The goal of this workshop is to develop and evaluate an integrated advice for the three main commercial fish stocks in the Baltic Sea, i.e. cod, herring and sprat. The approach that we will take will follow the Integrated Ecosystem Assessment (IEA) framework and is based on efforts of the “ICES/HELCOM Working Group on Integrated Assessments of the Baltic Sea” (WGIAB) summarized by Möllmann et al (2013). Eventually our goal is to demonstrate ways towards the inclusion of multi-species interactions, environmental conditions, bio-economic considerations and projections of the Baltic Sea future into an ecosystem-based fish stock advice and management.”

    The workshop will take place at  Askölaboratoriet between 25th and 29th of August.

    Fish Dependence Day – Latvia, Latvia

    Fish Dependence is the day on which imports have to be relied upon because national catches would have run out if only home-caught fish had been eaten since 1 January.

    Latvia  relies on imports for over four months per year, to satisfy domestic demand for fish products.

    Fish dependence is a powerful concept that illustrates how far over consumption outstrips domestic resources. One way to illustrate this trend is to represent a country’s degree of self-sufficiency as a calendar day – the day in the year when a country has consumed its own supply and must begin sourcing its products from elsewhere, hence the term ‘fish dependence day’. For the EU this date is currently 11th July, after which the EU depends on foreign resources. Fish dependence day is calculated by New Economics Foundation (NEF).
