    What do you do?

    I’m heavily involved in the seafood industry and have been since 1972. I do a number of different aspects; I’ve got my own family company involved in training and consultancy. But for the last few years my main emphasis has been on establishing the Association ofInternational Seafood Professionals, which is a global seafood association community. And Aquaculture without Frontiers, which is a charity, based in the USA, Australia and now Latin America.

  • RIP Peter Howgate OBE

    RIP Peter Howgate OBE

    R.I.P Peter Frederick Howgate, OBE

    Sadly I learned today of the passing of Peter Howgate.

    Peter would be well known for sharing his skills and knowledge initially from being involved in research at the famous Torry Research Station, Aberdeen and for his involvement in recent years through the Seafood HACCP Discussion electronic mailing list, amongst other groups.

    People like Peter have played a crucial role in the development of the seafood industry. What a charming man; someone who simply loved what he did and was a mentor to so many through various groups and connections – he was always prepared to share. The history and knowledge that he carried was invaluable to so many people and, if you are a member of one of the groups that Peter engaged, you will recognize from the various emails and comments the influence that he had and will appreciate the gap that his departure will cause.

  • I Am Standing Up for ... Fisherman

    I Am Standing Up for ... Fisherman

    I am writing this on UN Human Rights Day 2016 and this year’s theme is ‘to stand up for the rights of someone’ so reflecting on our industry I wish to make a case that we need to do something for the fishermen/women of the world.

    I doubt that many of us give any thought that when we tuck into a great meal of seafood that about 24,000 people die each year whilst plying their trade as fisher-folk. In fact things are so bad that we do not really know the exact number that perish and that, in itself, is an indictment on us all.

  • Day 2: South-East Asia and Pacific Regional Fisheries Summit

    Day 2: South-East Asia and Pacific Regional Fisheries Summit

    I felt the need to highlight that the discussion was based around the term ‘conservation’ which clearly was seen as a burden and a negative to finance. I suggested that we should be looking at this funding as being all about sustainable development relating to food security and nutrition because that was potentially more exciting, as well as being truthful.

  • India faces shrimp industry growing pains

    India faces shrimp industry growing pains

    Some of my friends in India are starting to show some concern about shrimp prices, as they have been sharply declining since last month. The two big issues that are having an effect are anti-dumping charges and antibiotics (rejections). In 2013 and 2014 according to provisional figures from the Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA), India’s seafood exports were valued at USD 4.5 billion, and for the first time exceeding a million metric in weight. Based on the previous year, this was approximately 30 percent higher than the previous year. Aquaculture shrimp exports were booming, accounting for more than half of that total, and on a deep rising curve.
