It’s easy to say that, *the industry is to blame, or *the industry doesn’t understand this. But because no one is charge, because there’s no coherent enforcement method, this is merely a shorthand. There is no industry, no economy, no market. Only people. And people, people can take action if they care. – Seth Godin

We can work together – because we care – BAQUA is here to facilitate this, steward the process.

Through BAQUA our membership takes a proactive role in contributing to policy including through white papers and consultations in relevant fields. BAQUA is a stakeholder of DEFRA through the CEFAS Fish Health Inspectorate. We list some of our interactions here:
