    Guidelines for the Landing and Sale of Fishery Products

    Advice on how to maintain high standards of fish quality and food safety and on maximising value through efficient landing and sale operations. The guidelines cover buildings and other structures, equipment, operating practices and the management and control of operations from landing of fish, to its despatch from the market or place of landing. They apply to the landing of fresh fish, both demersal and pelagic. They do not cover shellfish, that will be the subject of separate guidelines. Whilst these guidelines contain helpful technical information some of the legislative content may now be out of date.

    A feasibility study of native oyster (Ostrea edulis) stock regeneration in the United Kingdom

    Throughout much of the UK, the native oyster remains in a severely depleted state in the wild, having suffered for two centuries with over-exploitation, pests, disease, pollution and harsh winters. The native oyster is a Biodiversity Action Plan Species. Native oyster beds can form a flourishing part of the ecosystem, with many associated species. A significant driver for restoration of native oyster beds should therefore be re-creating and conserving an ecological resource in order to re-establish a biotope that was once common and covered wide areas of the UK inshore seabed.

    658 Pacific Oyster Protocol - Technical Report

    The potential impact of wild Pacific oysters on local biodiversity is being raised as an issue that has to be considered in environmental assessments of both new farms and changes to practices by existing farms where they occur in wildlife protected areas. A FIFG-funded project has been carried out by Seafish which focuses on Pacific oyster cultivation in and around European Marine Sites. Working closely with industry and statutory nature conservation agencies, relevant background information was collated (Development of a Pacific oyster aquaculture protocol for the UK - Technical Report and a protocol proposed (Development of a Pacific oyster aquaculture protocol for the UK - Protocol template. Where there could be an impact on protected wildlife and/or marine habitats, husbandry and management techniques have been proposed to mitigate or eliminate any potential impacts. The project complements the ‘Memorandum of Understanding for Appropriate Assessments in European Marine Sites’ that was agreed between the SAGB and Natural England.
