Over the last week I have been working in Serbia and Bosnia - Herzegovina. Places I never expected to work, been a fisheries consultant.

However, as they go trough the ascension process to the EU (after the incredible fratricidal dismembering of the former Yugoslavia) I been asked to go trough a series of seminars (Belgrade, Sarajevo and Bagna Luka) to facilitate the understanding of the EU requirements and the role of Ecolabels and other commercial certifications in the aquaculture and fisheries sector, under a programme from the Swiss government.

Life can take you to quite unexpected places, if you don't have many preconceptions on how it should be!
