    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.

    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.

    European launch of the Global Ocean Commission Report, Brussels, Belgium

    The European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and the Co-Chairs of the Global Ocean Commission invites to a European launch of the Global Ocean Commission report ´High Seas and Us´.

    The launch is also seen as an opportunity to bring together high level political representatives from EU Member States, Members of the European Parliament and a wide range of stakeholders to discuss the Global Ocean Commission’s proposals in the context of the European Union’s Blue Growth Policy and sustainability agenda as related to the future uses and health of our common ocean and heritage.

    About the Global Ocean Commission
    The Global Ocean Commission (GOC) is an independent international commission championing ocean recovery and seeking to improve the governance and management of the ocean. The key issues for the GOC are, with specific focus on the high seas, overfishing, large-scale loss of habitat and biodiversity, the lack of effective management and enforcement, and deficiencies in governance. The GOC is composed of 17 high-profile individuals from esteemed backgrounds in politics and business. In the development of its proposals the GOC has consulted widely and considered the best available science and economics to produce what they believe is the ‘rescue package’ for the ocean if implemented fully.

    The event till take place at: Charlemagne Building, 170 Rue de la Loi, 1040 Brussels
