Through addressing sustainable seafood challenges, the OCPP hopes to ensure seafood produced and distributed in ways which support healthy ecosystems, do not overexploit marine stocks, provide sustainable inclusive and equitable livelihoods and enhance resilience to climate and socioeconomic shocks.

Cefas will host workshops in partner countries Sri Lanka, India and Africa, to formally introduce the concept of One Health Aquaculture to Responsible Authorities and other stakeholders with responsibility for policies associated with environmental-, human health- and animal health-elements of national aquatic food production. Delegates at the workshop will have the opportunity to discuss the current partnership, including an opportunity to interact directly with the UK-based leads of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Collaborating Centre for Emerging Aquatic Animal Diseases, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) Reference Centre for Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) and the FAO Reference Centre for Bivalve Mollusc Sanitation. Interaction is intended to support aquatic food production and trade aspirations of overseas Governments and where suitable, to build a lasting framework for future engagement. This will lead to a change in how sustainable aquaculture is perceived, catalysing movement to creation of sustainable aquatic farming practices, in turn leading to improved conditions for trade (generating income and gross domestic product (GDP)) and generation of jobs and supply of food/protein in associated regions.
