Date & Time:Sunday, March 19, 2017
Location:Boston, MA or stream online

 

Join Chef, Author, and Director of our Sustainable Seafood and Health Initiative at the Seafood Expo North America for this sponsored panel from 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm.  

What is the current situation, where are we headed, and how can we insure that sustainable practices are adopted to meet future demand? First, a statistical overview of global trends (FAO stats) in seafood production, consumption and trade, along with a comparison of model projections (FAO/OECD/WB) of future production and utilization. Second, identification of key factors that hinder sustainable production, consumption and trade of fish products that threaten our future seafood supplies, global food security, and achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Presentations by four experts from government, private sector and civil society who will discuss their perspectives on market measures to promote sustainable fisheries production, consumption and trade, to include: U.S. regulations to prevent Illegal unreported and unregulated (IUU) fish from entering seafood markets; voluntary certification schemes (eco-labels) and benchmarking; business perspective on promoting sustainable fish production and trade from developing country fisheries; and consumer purchasing power as a market instrument to drive sustainable resource management.
