Traceability and Sustainability in the nephrops fishery

K Arkley, G Dunlin

This report details the results of pilot demonstration trials by Youngs Bluecrest to improve the data on nephrops tails supplied to the company. This is to facilitate product traceability and production planning and to demonstrate product integrity and the company's commitment to a sustainable fishing policy.

PAH's - Report on Seafish survey of UK seafood smoking businesses and products

R. Watson, W. Denton, M. Anyadiegwu

Polycylic aromatic hydrocarbons (PaH's) form a large group of chemicals, some of which are known to be toxic. They are produced largely by combustion processes and are present in smoked foods. The European Commission is proposing a maximum permitted limit of 5ppb for the PaH benzo(a) pyrene (BaP) in smoked foods. To determine the potential impact of this, Seafish has carried out a survey of the size and nature of the fish smoking industry in the UK and has gathered representative samples of its products for analysis. The survey found the value of smoked fish production in the UK to be over £120 million per annum. A wide variety of products are produced from a range of fish species using modern and traditional kilns, smoked over a variety of woods. PaH analyses of 33 products showed them all to be well within the proposed EU limit of 5ppb for BaP. Only 2 products exceeded 0.5ppb and the highest level found was 1.34ppb.

Proceedings of the Fantaccord Workshop March 2002

P MacMullen

The Fantaccord workshop was closely associated with a European research contract with the acronym ‘Fantared 2’ (contract FAIR-CT98-4338). The full title of this work was ‘A study to identify, quantify and ameliorate the impacts of static gears lost in European waters’. Fantared 2 was undertaken by a partnership of fisheries institutes from Norway, Sweden, UK, France, Spain and Portugal. Part of the Fantared project involved establishing national advisory groups (NAGs) of fishers and others to guide and review the work, particularly the simulations of gear loss by deploying and monitoring experimental arrays of fishing gear. It was thought to be important that these exercises were as commercially realistic as possible so that the resulting data had credibility with the commercial sector. In part this perception arose from the sensitivity of the topic of ‘ghost fishing’.
