Fish Capture – an in-depth analysis

Over the next three years, researchers from three countries are working together to analyze the sustainability of wild caught fish.

 

The research will be very thorough looking at all aspects of the industry, from fuel consumption and economic considerations to the impact on local communities, as well as the welfare of both the fish and employees.

The project is financed by the EU and more than 15 scientists are participating in the project together with industry organizations from around Europe. Three scientists from Nofima – Senior Scientist Petter Olsen (Project Coordinator) and Scientists Kine Mari Karlsen and Kathryn Donnelly – are taking part.

“We will develop a tool that enables individual companies and fishing boat owners to carry out a simplified life-cycle assessment (sustainability impact) of their products, including environmental, economic and social impacts,” says Donnelly, adding that the WhiteFish Project focuses on cod and haddock fisheries in the Northeast Atlantic.

“In the next phase of the project, we will systemize a series of data in order to achieve the broadest possible picture of the enterprise’s sustainability impact. We will use life-cycle assessment (LCA), which encompasses cradle to grave thinking for products and the instruments used in creating them, from production of the boat through to production and sale,” says Donnelly.
