IFITT program presented at the International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade

July 2014

MDPI, Fishing & Living’s partner organization in Indonesia, presented its work on traceability and FairTrade in Indonesia

The biennial  IIF20140708_142014ET conference brings together  academics, government policymakers and regulators, members of the fishing and aquaculture and related industries, and nongovernmental agencies and was held this year in Brisbane, Australia from 7-11 July (http://iifet2014.org/about-iifet/).

MDPI (implementation partners to F&L in Indonesia), along with its partners from the IFITT program (Improving fisheries information and traceability for tuna), Wageningen University and ThisFish were invited as speakers on a panel of a special session entitled ‘Extending the Business Case for Traceability from the Global North to the Global South’.


Anova is partnering with the IFITT project to work on innovative traceability initiatives which aim to highlight the need for traceability and how it can be a tool which promotes transparency, supports the improvement of data flows in ‘fish rich but data poor’ countries such as Indonesia and which ultimately creates a pathway of information from source to plate. “We want traceability to show the world we are working with and sourcing from high quality, sustainably sourced and ethically compliant fisheries”.
