After three weeks of exploring the world of Fish production and consumption we are ready to move on to another product from on our Animal Farm – Beef.
Looking back, we covered the broader consequences of over-fishing, fish species facing extinction, the poor condition of marine life and pollution.
We addressed the trappings of by-catch; we left our readers with solutions and in our final words on Fish we looked at the social issues connected to the industry. It honed in on the inequality between developed countries and developing countries and the negative effects that it in turn has on traditional fishermen including migration, fish-for-sex and child labour.
While tackling this broad issue we shed light on the unfair working hours and dangerous working conditions that many fishermen face in their countries of origin.
We now put Fish to rest, make a brief detour to Pig Business before moving on to Beef. Keep abreast of the burning issues in the food and beverage industry on our website.
