Workshop: Value Chains - Sustaining Ethical Aquaculture Trade (SEAT)

  1. 1. Sustaining Ethical Aquaculture Trade (SEAT) Value chain component Froukje Kruijssen Science Week 2011
  2. 2. Introduction to the project <ul><li>SEAT = S ustaining E thical A quaculture T rade </li></ul><ul><li>Project duration: August 2009 – July 2013 </li></ul><ul><li>Countries: Bangladesh, China, Thailand, Vietnam </li></ul><ul><li>Species: tilapia, pangasius catfish, marine shrimp, freshwater prawn </li></ul><ul><li>Partners: universities (Asia and Europe), international organizations, total 12 partners </li></ul>Photo: Ingrid Kelling
  3. 3. Objectives of the project <ul><li>Interdisciplinary understanding of emergent Asian aquatic food chains </li></ul><ul><li>Develop improved/ transparent measures of sustainability for target production systems (EAFI). </li></ul><ul><li>Enhance sustainability & ethical ‘values’ of four major aquatic food commodities through action research </li></ul><ul><li>Enhance farmed seafood, scientific, business and policy linkages between Asia and Europe </li></ul>
  4. 4. Value chain analysis in SEAT <ul><li>Part of work package on social and economic dynamics </li></ul><ul><li>Value chains of selected species from Bangladesh, China, Thailand and Vietnam into the EU </li></ul><ul><li>Literature: focus until Asian border </li></ul><ul><li>Status of fieldwork: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bangladesh & Thailand: completed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vietnam: Jul – Oct 2011 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EU: Sept – Nov 2011 & Feb – Mar 2012 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>China: Oct 2011 – Jan 2012 </li></ul></ul>

  9. 9. Added value of the project <ul><li>Following value chain into the EU </li></ul><ul><ul><li>So far somewhat of a ‘black box’ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>More focus on governance issues and institutional framework </li></ul><ul><li>More systematic integration of ‘vertical’ and ‘horizontal’ elements of the value chain </li></ul><ul><li>Interdisciplinary </li></ul><ul><li>Action research with SME’s </li></ul>
