    Fish Dependence Day – UK, UK

    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.

    UK 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).

    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).

    WWF Baltic Sea Festival Event OUR SEAS – OUR FUTURE, Stockholm, Sweden

    ALL LIFE ON EARTH DEPENDS on a healthy, living ocean. Billions of us rely on it for food, clean air, a stable climate, energy, livelihoods and well-being. But, due to mismanagement and neglect, the vital ecosystem services the ocean provides are increasingly under threat.

    ACHIEVING MORE EFFECTIVE ocean governance is now on the global agenda as never before. Please join WWF for an exclusive event where distinguished speakers and guests will discuss the opportunities for the Baltic region to promote innovative ocean governance solutions for securing healthy oceans and a flourishing and sustainable ‘blue economy’ for current and future generations.

    WE ARE PLEASED to share that H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria will join us in addition to Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Director of the Global Change Institute from the University of Queensland, Lisa Emelia Svensson, Sweden’s Ambassador for Oceans, Seas and Freshwater and the recently appointed new Director General of WWF International, Marco Lambertini, among others.
