Project Rationale

  • Global human consumption of seafood has increased steadily in the past decades. World per capita apparent seafood consumption was on average 9.9 kg per year in the 1960s, it increased to an average of 17.1 kg in the period 2008-2010, further increased to an average of 19.2 kg in the period 2011-2013, and it is projected to reach 20.9 kg in 2023.
  • The growing demand for seafood, coupled with insufficient conservation and management measures, have puts pressure on the entire value chain, motivate overcapacity, illegal fishing, use of destructive fishing gear and practices, and seafood fraud.
  • The harvest of marine seafood has reached a plateau of about 80 million tonnes since the mid-1980s because most stocks are overfished or at the limit of production, but the demand continues to increase
  • Market forces have been a major driver of overfishing and fisheries collapse when natural resources management is deficient. However, the same market forces can promote sustainable fisheries if there are demand on seafood from sustainable sources and therefore pull improvement along the value chain.
  • However, despite interest from market, the amount of seafood from sustainable certified sources is still a small fraction of the total supply (appx. <10% of the total world production).
  • There is a major need for reliable information about the status of seafood stocks and the availability of supply from certified sources or credible fisheries improvement project

The solution and Barrier

Transformation of the market in which sustainable seafood is adequately valued by consumers, there are public policies and instruments to support sustainable fisheries and coordinated contribution from the stakeholders of the value chain, public and private.

The project

This inter-regional project implemented in four countries, namely Ecuador, Indonesia, the Philippines and Costa Rica and allocate resources strategically to:

  • Engage major seafood buyers in the main world markets (EU, Japan, US) into responsible sourcing, providing tools to prepare and implement sustainable seafood sourcing policies;
  • Adapt the concept of green commodities platforms (currently used in agriculture) to the seafood value chain, implement public-private sustainable marine commodities platforms in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Indonesia and Philippines to generate experience that could be used in other countries;
  • Support the stakeholders of these platforms to develop practical experience with fisheries improvement projects and upgrade existing tools for FIP implementation and monitoring, and;
  • Upgrade existing information platforms to facilitate access to reliable material to value chain stakeholders in support of sound decision making, and capturing, documenting and disseminating the learnings of the project.

In Indonesia the Global Sustainable Supply Chains for Marine Commodities (GMC) project (2018-2021) is led by Ministry of National Development Planning/ BAPPENAS with support from GEF/UNDP and will contribute to help transforming seafood market by mainstreaming sustainability in the supply chain of fisheries commodities from Indonesia. One of the outputs is to generate lesson learnt and model in improving fisheries sustainability through Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIPs) in tuna fisheries, and facilitating availability of data and information for credible sourcing of sustainable seafood and development planning of fisheries sector.
