Blue Ventures: We Rebuild Tropical Fisheries with Coastal Communities

Blue Ventures: We Rebuild Tropical Fisheries with Coastal Communities

Our story started over a decade ago, surveying coral reefs in the Mozambique channel. Vezo communities in southern Madagascar were concerned about the decline of their fisheries, so we supported one village to experiment with closing off a small section of their octopus gleaning area for a few months, to see whether this might boost productivity.

New WAS President Guillaume Drillet: "...it is about engaging people and supporting the transfer of information.."

Written by Guillaume Drillet, Posted in Fish Net Blog

New WAS President Guillaume Drillet:

I have to admit that I am very happy to be able to serve WAS and the APA chapter in particular; Asia has been my home for 7 years now, my Mom herself is born in Phnom Penh; it is a family circle back to ground zero!

I have always been very active in taking responsibilities in societies and association in general. In the recent years, I have taken two big challenges, the WAS-APC and the GloBal TestNet and this keeps me very enthusiastic and busy. I love structuring, organizing and helping people to get something extra. I believe this is what WAS is about.

The facilities at the National Aquaculture Group were phenomenal. World class.

The facilities at the National Aquaculture Group were phenomenal. World class.

I was invited to go there to facilitate at a workshop that was being organized by the Saudi Arabian Aquaculture Society. It was held at the The National Aquaculture Group headquarters, which is situated about 200 kilometers south of Jeddah alongside the Red Sea. Aquaculture and seafood consumption have become important issues for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia because the King of Saudi Arabia has created a 2030 vision where He sees the Kingdom producing 630,000 tons of aquaculture products by 2030. So the idea of running the workshop was to engage and get some ideas about how this could all happen. Obviously increasing seafood consumption in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a key to building the industry.

Honest Traders Impacted by Lack of Vision & Communication

The number one influence my grandfather, father and uncle have had upon me is honesty. To them as well as to myself honesty is very important. Honesty has built trust in my relationships with our suppliers and customers. It is the foundation of Seatech Corporation.

"We farm this fish because we must – we feel compelled to do so..."

Written by Neil Sims, Posted in Fish Net Blog

I grew up on the East Coast of Australia, about one and a half stone-throws from the beach. I was always fascinated by biology – I had an ant farm and a butterfly collection - and I had uncles that owned farms out West, raising cattle, sheep, wheat and sunflowers. I loved the water – surfing and swimming and fishing in the ocean - and marine biology was a natural calling.

Exactly what are Fishy Filaments?

Written by Ian Falconer, Posted in Fish Net Blog

Exactly what are Fishy Filaments?

Your product, made from recycled fishing nets is unique and pioneering, is anyone else doing this?

What you will find is that adidas is working with an NGO called Parley on the west coast of the states and have done a demo with some used fishing nets. What they did was they collected some nets and they've done a demo run and with adidas they've produced some sneakers. Those sneakers have been sold at $7,000 a pair. It's not an economic model. It's a PR demo. I'm not doing demos. I'm trying to make a genuine business. It's embedded in the local community that takes waste from local sources and employs local people and then exports a finished product.

Aquaculture America 2017 Presenter: Nancy Peterson

How and where did you first start working in seafood industries?

After completing my MBA I networked with a fellow Babson graduate who had taken a position the previous year at Gorton’s in Gloucester MA. He said great things about the company and it seemed a great place to start my marketing career. Honestly my focus was not so much on seafood back then, but that quickly changed!
