Implications for Small-Scale Fisheries Imports and the New EU Due Diligence Legislation

Panel: Wednesday, April 24, 2:00-2:45 p.m., Room CC5.2

Does your seafood come from fishers who have the legal right to fish?

The upcoming EU Due Diligence legislation will expand the legal implications for companies marketing seafood products imported from fisheries with unregistered fishers and vessels, or where human rights or labor conditions are not fully respected. This panel will review the challenges and opportunities for the seafood industry from this legislation.

Panelists will include:

  • Enrique Alonso, Global Fisheries Director, SFP
  • José Alvarado, President, Hualaihue Artisanal Fishers Association
  • Yago Doson, Blue Foods Specialist, Iberostar Group
  • Francesca Peretti, Legal Expert, Value Chains, Trade, and Investment, Client Earth

Jumbo flying squid: Working together toward a sustainable future

Wednesday, April 24, 3:00-4:00 p.m., Room CC4.4
The jumbo flying squid fishery (JFS) is one of the largest artisanal fisheries in the world. Participation and engagement by artisanal producers and processors in the fishery have helped contribute to important progress in management of the fishery over the last several years.
Join representatives of local producer and processor organizations to learn more about their efforts to improve JFS management at the national and regional levels. Speakers will represent:
  • SONAPESCAL (the Peruvian Artisanal Fishing Society), the largest fisher organization in the artisanal mahi-mahi and jumbo flying squid fisheries, composed of seven fishing unions representing more than 1,300 vessels
  • CAPECAL (the Peruvian Chamber for Jumbo Flying Squid), a group of 17 Peruvian squid processing companies representing more than 50% of the value of jumbo flying squid exports from Peru
  • CALAMASUR (the Committee for the Sustainable Management of the Jumbo Flying Squid), a group of squid producers, processors, and exporters from Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, and Peru
This event is supported by SFP, WWF, and PromPeru. It is free and open to any Expo attendees. You do not need a conference badge to attend.
