Weekly discussion

The Finet paper discussion are back!!!

We invite you to participate to a lively chat on Skype in one of our regular meetings (normally on Monday evenings, Central European Time).

Contact us via join.finet@gmail.com to join our meeting and share your opinion with us. If you have problems finding the papers, let us know and we will try to help you.

We will start on Monday 13th April 2015 with the recent paper “Ecosystem processes are rarely included in tactical fisheries management” (Skern-Mauritzen et al., 2015. Fish and Fisheries, open-access article: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/faf.12111/abstract)

This paper focuses on Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries: in how many cases the ecosystem is taken into consideration for stock assessment? The results are somewhat surprising.

When? Monday 13th April 2015 at 9pm CET

Where? On Skype! If you want to participate to the discussion, contact us via email!

    First of all I like the idea of that Network!
    The following is just a proposal cause it reached me today, already made it to the CNN-startpage and will be from higher interest in the next time. May give some impulses for research but also to decision making people in administration. We´ll see http://www.worldfishcenter.org/wfcms/HQ/article.aspx?ID=1242
    Here you´ll find the CNN article http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/06/14/eco.aquaculture.food/index.html?hpt=hp_mid

      Hi Sebastian,
      this “Blue Frontiers” report is great! People often ask me for my opinion of aquaculture, at least in Germany the origin of aquaculture fish and its ecological impact is really a concerning topic for the public. I will look if I can find a shorter paper on the topic for the discussion and we could use the “Blue Frontiers” report as background information.

        So what about this shorter (open source) paper to start a discussion: “The dual myths of the healthy wild fish and the unhealthy farmed fish” by Øivind Bergh from the Institute of Marine Research in Bergen: http://brage.bibsys.no/imr/bitstream/URN:NBN:no-bibsys_brage_3709/1/d075p159.pdf

        As I already said, I would strongly recommend the Blue Frontiers report as background information and I would like to come from the disease risks of aquaculture to a broader discussion about pro’s and con’s for modern aquaculture.
