Fisheries Research Unit – Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture

Luqa Road, Qormi, Malta

The primary role of the Fisheries Research Unit (FRU) within the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture is to collect, analyse and report data relevant to the Maltese fisheries. The FRU collects sound information about the state of fisheries resources primarily within the 25 nm Fisheries Management Zone around the Maltese Islands and within the Geographical Sub-Area (GSA) 15, and explore the most effective measures to manage them. The FRU also plays a leading or partner role in various EU and nationally funded projects and schemes which deal with different aspects of fisheries data collection, analysis for the provision of scientific advice, and marine spatial planning. The main objectives of the FRU are (i) to collect transversal (such as fishing activity, capacity, and effort landings), biological, and socio-economic data from the fisheries and processing sectors; (ii) to statistically analyse the collected data in order to infer specific trends, and assess the socio-economic and biological sustainability of fishing practices; and (iii) to provide robust scientific advice for the policy-makers in order to properly manage our fish stocks.

Fishing Vessel Register – Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture

Luqa Road, Qormi, Malta

The Fishing Vessel Register (FVR) has as its main objective the registration of fishing vessels under the classifications issued by the Department according to S.L. 425.07. Thus, the vessels covered by the Register are MFA, MFB and MFC whereby MFA and MFB fishing vessels pertain to the professional category licenced to market their catch whilst MFC vessels are registered to be used for recreational purposes only. The FVR is not only responsible with registering such vessels under their respective category and the issuing of such licences on an annual basis, but it is also responsible in issuing, in a timely manner, special seasonal fishing authorizations; all of which follow ICCAT rules and EU legislations, Vessel Transfers and Vessel Replacements requests also fall under the responsibility of the FVR section. Transfers requests involve the transfer of vessels between previous and new vessel owners and in some cases onto heirs when it comes to deceased vessels owners whereas Vessel Replacements usually involve the replacement of inefficient fishing vessels with more reliable ones. There are other services which fall under the FVR remit. Any changes in the fishing vessel equipment or details needs to be applied for through this section. For every change required, vessel owner is to await approval from the department in order to be able to implement the change in caption. Apart from the duties as mentioned above, The FVR has an important role in acting as a regulator for fishing vessels that fall under the professional category. Failure to comply with the annual minimum fish sales obligations as per SL 425.07 will result in a ‘Relegation’ Process which will refrain the fishing vessel from performing any other fishing activity on a commercial level thus losing its right in the professional category.

Għaqda Trobbija tan-Naħal u Għasel Malti

The aim of this association is to teach both Maltese beekeepers and anyone interested in this sector. This association specifically educates how to tend to bees as well as the quality of the honey being sold and also how to make beeswax. Let’s not forget that 80% of the food we eat comes from bees and if it is destroyed in bees, the world will end up being destroyed as well. The bee is very important both in the pollination of the fruit we eat and in the honey it also produces. In addition to honey, bees produce pollen as well as propolis, which can also be used for medicinal purposes. Here in Malta we find three qualities of honey – spring honey (multiflora) which is harvested in May, summer honey (thyme) which is harvested in August and finally winter honey (eucalyptus and carob) which is harvested in November. L-Għaqda Trobbija tan-Naħal u Għasel Malti would like to inform the public that it will be launching a course for those who want to learn about this sector so that this knowledge of this precious craft can be further enhanced and transcended.

L-Università ta' Malta: FAST Project

Institute of Earth Systems – Division of Rural Sciences and Food Systems

The FAST project aims to combat the introduction, naturalization and spread of invasive alien species that harm biodiversity, a phenomenon that is particularly important in cross-border areas, for the greater ease of interchange, and which requires timely and urgent action. The FAST project proceeds with the recognition of invasive alien species and their classification into priority scales, their containment and/or eradication and the identification and management of pathways (especially two-way cross-border). Guidelines will then be drawn up and best practices adopted. In the Maltese Islands, this project targets 3 Special Areas of Conservation of the Natura 2000 network of protected areas: L-Inħawi tal-Buskett u tal-Girgenti, Il-Magħluq ta' Marsaskala, and L-Inħawi tax-Xlendi u il-Wied tal-Kantra.

Malta Beekeepers' Association

In Malta, despite the small size of the land, we find a wide diversity of flora on which the livelihood of pollinators depends, including insects that pollinate flowers. One finds several indigenous and endemic plants, shrubs, and trees in different habitats that provide nectar and pollen to bees, including honey bees. The honey bee is the most efficient insect in the pollination of flowers and this means that a majority of the flowers in Malta will be able to bear fruit and seed. In the apiary, nowadays, we find a number of boxes with honey bee colonies in contrast to the earthenware jar we used to find in the past. The Beekeeper’s task has become very important today, to ensure that bees are kept healthy, enabling today's and tomorrow's pollination. In Malta we also have an endemic honey bee known as Apis mellifera ruttneri which is adapted to the climatic and geographical conditions of our country. The Malta Beekeepers’ Association is committed to foster, with the general public, education, knowledge, and appreciation of honey bees amongst other goals.

Through the reform of the Pitkalija, this Agency will establish a centralised information management system that allows for more fairness and transparency, as well as better traceability of food along the chain. All this will help farmers and fishers improve their sales, profits, and bargaining position. But it does not stop there. The Agency will be instrumental in the creation of new markets for local produce. In setting through regulation, licencing, standards, as well as funding support, the right business ecosystem for investment in the agri-food sector will be created. This will contribute to a food system that is healthier, more robust, and more resilient.

SYNECO is looking at the possibility of developing a mobile technology to service pig and cow farms for the treatment of their manure. A pilot project is currently ongoing to assemble a treatment facility that will recover biofertiliser and clear water. Combined to this mobile technology to recover nutrients, the Farmers Central Cooperative Society (FCCS) will adopt CropManagerTM for integrated nutrient management to be able to optimise fertilising, including cases where this is based on recovered nutrients in bio-fertilisers. In this way, the farmers will be able to optimise their yields from an economic viewpoint, making better use of indigenous resources in lieu of imported chemical fertilisers.
