No.7 Voluntary Guidelines on Catch Documentation Schemes approved to reduce illegal catches and promote responsible consumption
 
 
On July 7, UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) approved the Voluntary Guidelines on Catch Documentation Schemes to act as an internationally-recognized “gold standard” reference for governments and businesses looking to establish systems that can trace fish from their point of capture through the entire supply chain, in other words from “sea-to-plate,” to stop illegally caught fish from entering the marketplace and ensure the catches in all links of supply chains are in accordance with the maintenance and management measure in related regions, countries and international standards.
 
Reason for listing
 
Illegal, unreported and unregulated catches has a negative impact on marine ecosystems, food safety and the livelihoods of fishermen. The solution to this serious global problem requires that we have to know the source of problems, like the place where it occurs, and grasp how the illegal catches flow into the market. The catch documentation schemes provide a means to reduce the illegally caught fish and the establishment of a transparent and traceable supply chain also provides responsible consumers with more options for legitimate aquatic products.
