Puerto Montt welcomes Salmon Aquaculture Dialogue

CHILE
Wednesday, May 05, 2010, 01:30 (GMT + 9)



The next meeting of the Salmon Aquaculture Dialogue, set to take place on 12 and 13 May in Puerto Montt, will address the labour and social impacts of salmon farming.

Meeting participants will evaluate the negative effects salmon farming can have on sector workers and local communities.

Ideas broached during the encounter, which will be open to the public, will be used by the Dialogue’s Steering Committee to develop draft standards.

Further on, these social and environmental standards will be implemented to help eliminate or minimize key negative social impacts related to salmon farming.

The Dialogue is chaired by the Steering Committee, made up of representatives of the salmon industry and NGOs of the countries in which the world’s leading salmon producers are situated. The environmental group Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) is responsible for its coordination.

“This will be a unique opportunity for stakeholders to respectfully share ideas and shape the development of credible standards,” said Hernan Frigolett, of the Fundacion Terram.

"We encourage all people interested in salmon farming in Chile and other regions of the world to come to the meeting,” he added.

In order to establish a basis for discussion, the Dialogue’s Social Technical Working will present its latest State of Information Report.

The report covers the social context of salmon farming in three leading salmon producer countries, as well as associated labour matters and their impacts.

Participating in the meeting are Elena Arengo, of Social Accountability International and lead author of the report; and Estrella Diaz, a sociologist and editor in Chile, both of whom will present the Work Group’s findings at the meeting.

The Dialogue will tackle the development of standards by means of a five-stage process:

Identification of the main environmental and social impacts of salmon production;
Definition of principles for facing those impacts;
Recognition of the fundamental areas of action under each established principle;
Development of indicators' proposals;
Evaluation of quantifiable aspects for environmental impacts.
The Steering Committee presented the first draft of environmental indicators of the Dialogue meeting in November 2009, in the city of Bergen, Norway.
