To increase the sustainability of the sector in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Ecuador, disease and feed issues must be tackled.
Diseases result in loss of income, waste of inputs and irresponsible practices like the excessive use of antimicrobials. Disease occurrence threatens farmers long-term business. As a result, investors are reluctant to make long term (sustainable) investments.
Feed has an effect on people, planet and profit. It is the biggest cost in aquaculture production; it is sometimes used ineffciently; and may contain marine ingredients such as fish oil and fish meal which may be come from illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fisheries.
IDH tackles these issues by strengthening partnerships, supporting innovation and driving investment into more sustainable production.
As someone who has grown up with a stretch of Australia’s most pristine ocean in their backyard, fishing was an institution for me. Hours upon hours were spent learning to tie knots, disassembling and reassembling fishing reels and experimenting with different gear to target different species. I learned about the tides, the moon cycles, the water temperatures, the wind and even the bathymetry of my entire immediate coastline in a bid to gain the upper hand against the fish I sought to bring home
Yep, there wasn’t much I didn’t know or seek to find out about all things fish growing up in a family of keen fishermen and women. But this love for fishing taught me much more than how to catch and fillet a fish. As I grew into my teens, the desire for simply landing fish for food or to declare a trip a success waned under the weight of a growing appreciation and respect for what fishing gave me. I began to understand just how much fishing had taught me about our environment. About how the most intricate environmental changes could have the most significant impact upon entire marine ecologies. It showed me how intertwined human actions on land and sea were with the infinitely complex and ill understood processes that defined how marine ecosystems functioned.
Make no mistake, this was no ‘light-bulb’ moment where it suddenly all came together for me. Nope, it was in every way a slow simmer of my curiosities around how marine and terrestrial environments were connected that lead me to pursue a career in marine science. I needed to understand more about this unseen world that had pilfered such a significant percentage of my waking and subconscious life’s attention.
