November 8-10, 2016 Lima & Paita, Peru
This meeting is geared towards US-based buyers and importers of mahi mahi, as well as representatives of national producers, processors, and exporters. At the meeting, we will cover 3 high US import volume Mahi FIPS: Peru, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. We will focus on Peru and review the status, progress, and key issues with the Peru mahi FIP, and how industry can help to advance the FIP. In addition, we will discuss the Ecuador mahi FIP and the upcoming Costa Rica mahi FIP.
We will also review the traceability work that has been conducted in Peru and discuss next steps for implementing traceability for this fishery. As the meeting is taking place just after the US IUU Regulation is expected to come into force, and mahi mahi is one of the imported species that will be regulated, we have invited the NOAA Fisheries Office of International Affairs and Seafood Inspection to attend and to discuss seafood traceability and compliance with the new US rule.
In addition, a critical part of the meeting will be the attendance of the newly elected Peru government officials to discuss the FIP. The Peruvian government’s engagement is critical for both the Peru Mahi FIP and the Ecuador Mahi FIP to progress and finalize their projects.
National and international speakers will participate in the event.
We have also included time for discussions with participants on various topics to gather feedback and encourage an exchange of ideas.
