Recommendation for improvement
  • Publish further details of the EIA procedure, associated environmental licenses , as well as farm compliance with water quality standards set by Decreto Nº 3.516.

  • Publicly report data on licensing, production, waterbody quality, and disease outbreaks under portals such as General del Sistema de Informacion Nacional and Sistema Unico de Informacion Ambiental (SUIA).

  • Expand requirements of the PNC to include the following aspects of farm management: wastewater monitoring, farm planning based on an assessment of the carrying capacity of the water body, and the coordination of disease control and health management practices between farms.

  • Encourage feed companies to publicly disclose source fisheries (for example, via annual reports or sustainability reports, regularly updated websites, or initiatives such as the Ocean Disclosure Project). For source fisheries with sustainability concerns, initiate Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs).

  • Encourage the SSP to publish regular updates and progress against their goals via their website or through annual reports.

AQUACULTURE MANAGEMENT UNITS

In FishSource, information on aquaculture management is displayed at the highest resolution unit for which data is available. Ideally, information would simply be structured around an aquaculture management area (AMA) – the primary unit within which aquaculture management practices should be coordinated across a group of farms to mitigate against cumulative impacts and shared risks. Although AMAs are sometimes recognized in industry strategy and regulatory documents, they are not yet established across all aquaculture industries; so, we typically display information at the province/state level.
