SFP announces combination of squid SRs

06 Apr 2017

The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) says that two squid Supply Chain Roundtables (SRs) will merge together to encompass more than 20 squid fisheries worldwide in order to create a more sustainable global squid industry.

Industrial stakeholders backing the two SRs, which encompass squid production in Southeast Asia and South America, announced the SRs were combining following key discussions at Seafood Expo North America in Boston.

The move aims to unite sectors, simplifying efforts by industry stakeholders to monitor and operate various squid fishery improvement projects around the world.

An SR is an industry-led body that oversees the progress of fishery improvement projects (FIPs) and/or aquaculture improvement projects (AIPs). SRs are often necessary to manage multiple FIPs and/or AIPs.

The new merged SR will include more than 20 companies. There is a collective thinking that merging the two SRs will make managing global squid FIPs much easier.
