Freshwater Trout Aquaculture Dialogue 27-28th May 2009

World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are inviting to the second meeting of the Freshwater Trout Aquaculture Dialogue (FTAD). The goal of the meeting, which will be the 27th and 28th of May 2009 in Thorshavn, the Faroe Islands (North Atlantic), is to move forward with creating the world's first set of measurable, performance-based standards for responsible Rainbow Trout aquaculture. The standards will be designed to minimize the environmental and social impacts related to freshwater trout farming.

As a key stakeholder in the trout aquaculture industry, your input at the meeting will be invaluable. We hope you can join in the open discussion between producers, scientists, processors, seafood buyers, NGO staff, government officials and others who will be at the meeting. Your voice will be heard, as all stakeholders are treated equally and all of their feedback will be used by the Dialogue Steering Committee to develop draft standards. Decisions by the Steering Committee also will be based on the most current and sound science related to trout aquaculture.

The first day of the meeting will be dedicated mainly to identifying "criteria," which will be the areas to focus on to address the key impacts associated with freshwater trout aquaculture. The criteria will be used in developing standards for the industry. The focus of the second day will be creating indicators for measuring each of the criteria. At future meetings, participants will continue to develop criteria and indicators and work towards a draft set of performance-based standards for sustainable trout production.

Also at the meeting, participants will continue to identify research that needs to be done to address any areas of disagreement between Dialogue participants and fill information gaps related to freshwater trout aquaculture.

Please contact us if you would like to attend the meeting in the Faroe Islands. Funding is available to help with meeting-related travel expenses. Priority will be given to people making research-based presentations. Please let us know by April 30h, 2009 if you will be attending and if you need financial assistance. Also, we welcome your suggestions on who to invite to the meeting. Send your responses to

The trout Dialogue is one of eight WWF-initiated Dialogues underway globally. Standards also are being developed for salmon, tilapia, shrimp, pangasius, abalone, seriola/cobia and molluscs (clams, scallops, oysters and mussels). For more information about the Dialogues, go to

We hope to see you in May.
