Contents Overview of the use of wild fish as feed in aquaculture and related issues -- Existing guidelines on fisheries management and initiatives to improve sustainable management of fish stock resources -- Principles and technical guidelines on the use of wild fish as feed in aquaculture
Summary "These technical guidelines on the use of wild fish as feed in aquaculture have been developed in support of Article 7 (responsible fisheries management) and Article 9 (aquaculture development) of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, and in particular in support of Articles 9.1.3, 9.1.4 and 9.4.3. The objectives of the guidelines are to contribute towards the development of aquaculture and the sustainable utilization of feed-fish stocks. The guidelines cover a number of issues relevant to the use of wild fish in feeds in aquaculture, including ecosystem and environmental impacts, ethical considerations on the responsible use of fish as feed, aquaculture technology and development, and statistics and information needs for managing the development of aquaculture. Specific matters relating to the management of fishery resources that may be used as feeds are briefly considered in these guidelines, as these have been dealt with in detail in separate FAO guidelines relating to fisheries management and which, inter alia, would also apply to feed-fish fisheries. The guiding principles for these technical guidelines were developed and adopted at the FAO Expert Workshop on the Use of Wild Fish and/or Other Aquatic Species as Feed in Aquaculture and its Implications to Food Security and Poverty Alleviation, 16-18 November 2007, Kochi, India."--Page iv
