The Seychelles Fishing Boat Owners’ Association’s website is now online. The site was created by the SFA (Seychelles Fishing Authority) with technical support from the CDE.

A little-known European Union regulation coming into force January next year could have a major impact on the health of fishing industries in developing countries, according to a new study. The EU is the single largest consumer of fish in the world, accounting for around 40 per cent of global imports. Such is the continent's appetite for aquatic life, the cumulative net fish exports from developing countries now exceed earnings from coffee, bananas and rubber. But near-unfettered access to the European market for developing countries is set to end with the adoption of new legislation to help eradicate illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing practices and ensure the sustainability of worldwide fish stocks. The IUU Regulation - to be implemented from January 2010 - puts in place strict conditions on countries that want to maintain access to the lucrative European market.

In September 2008, the European Commission’s Communication on ‘A European Strategy for Marine and Maritime Research’ took this a stage further by laying out an action plan for better integration of research between the maritime and marine communities in order to address the problems of marine degradation caused by human activities and develop new technologies for sustainable development of maritime activities. This brochure is based on that communication and explains the context behind its creation and some of the proposed actions and initiatives that will be carried outin the coming years.

South Africa’s fishing industry may face increased competition from Namibian fish exports, which could spell disaster for the local industry. Because Namibia has still to sign an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with the European Union, which is expected to result in it losing its trade preferences later this year, industry role players have warned that the country is likely to divert most of its exports, currently destined for the European market, to South Africa.

Agriculture in the Bahamas, as a percentage, is roughly 2 percent of GDP. Within the agricultural sector, the fisheries sub-sector has been playing a particularly dynamic role, consistently accounting for more than 75 percent of total agricultural output and with the crawfish industry, yielding anywhere from $60 to $100 million dollars (USD) per year - or on average representing about 85 percent of the value of all fisheries output. For a country with less than 400,000 people and for a sector that employs less than 10,000, country-wide, that is a considerable amount of wealth for persons in the fisheries sector.

This three year project, the implementation of which was completed in December 2008, covers the three ACP countries in the IOC. The total cost of the project is estimated at 5.46 million Euro, 3.5 million of which comes from the 9th EDF while the remainder is paid partly by Reunion and the other IOC member states. The objective of the programme is to establish and test the conditions for regional cooperation in the field of MCS with a view to ensuring sustainable resource management.

This report produced by Concord forms part of the work being undertaken by European development NGOs to monitor and advocate on European aid. It reports that some of the countries deliver aid based on their own priorities and not those of the poor while addressing the symptoms and not the causes - and yet they deliver the majority of the global aid flows. It adds that evidence shows that when aid is delivered well, it has been crucial in improving living conditions of the poor in developing countries.
The Europeans are mounting pressure on African countries to sign the controversial Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). But experts have warned against it. They argued that it favours Europe only and that economic development in Africa must be allowed to kick-off out of internal evolution. But the news filtering out is that the West African sub continent is about to sign the deal.
