Abstract

The primary objective of work package 7 is to understand the global trade in and markets for aquaculture products, focusing on the small-scale sector and the effects of global trade and markets on enabling or preventing aquaculture from achieving its food security objectives.

The two activities undertaken in the work package were firstly - a review of primary and secondary information on production and trade in aquaculture products over the past decades has been completed by the University of Stavanger. The results are summarised in the report on aquaculture production and trade (deliverable 7.1).

Secondly, an analysis of trade and trade regulations as drivers of change was carried out by the University of Portsmouth in association with case study partners. The analysis focused on trade and trade regulations as drivers of change in the aquaculture chain and consequences on food security, poverty reduction and nutrition. The work had three components: 1-Presentation of major trade and trade regulations dynamism over the last ten years; 2-Analysis of the way trade and trade regulation is perceived as signal by key actors of the aquaculture chain and 3-Assessment of the effect of trade and trade regulation on poverty, food security and nutrition. The framework was described in the report on case study methodology (deliverable 7.2).

An overview of the main results of this work package is presented in this report. A synthesis of the case study reports will be provided as an annex of final project report.
