zst-logoA page on the Latvian Rural Advisory and Training Centre’s website mentioned the feature on Latvia in the April edition of the Eurofish Magazine this year. The summary of the English translation of the webpage is provided below. The Latvian original can be viewed here

“Eurofish Magazine, a respected journal covering the European fisheries and aquaculture sector, is published by the International Organisation for the Development of Fisheries Sector in Central and Eastern Europe (EUROFISH).

The February issue of the Magazine is dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the organisation. Latvia has been a member of Eurofish since it was established in 2002. Other members are Albania, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Croatia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain and Turkey.

The April issue, among other things, provides an overview of the Latvian fisheries sector looking at the opportunities and challenges it faces. The magazine focuses on the ambitious plans of the state hatchery Tome to become a centre of excellence in aquaculture, presents the view of the Latvian Fish Producers Association on the role of producer organizations in strengthening the competitiveness of fishing companies and in developing small-scale businesses in rural areas. Restocking of salmon and sea trout and the variety of products produced in Latvia from Baltic herring are among the other topics covered by this issue.

In addition there is an interview with Anne Christine Brusendorff, the new General Secretary of the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES). From a Latvian perspective it is interesting to see how her experience in ecosystems and environmental protection will affect ICES policy in providing scientific advice for the management of stocks."
