Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship is an initiative that connects the global seafood business to science, connects wild capture fisheries to aquaculture, and connects European and North American companies to Asian companies. The ambition is to lead a global transformation towards sustainable seafood production and a healthy ocean. The initiative will actively contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in particular Goal 14 – Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.
Participants are pledging to work to eliminate IUU harvested products and any form of modern slavery in their supply chains. They will develop a code of conduct for their own operations and for their suppliers, in order to deliver on these commitments. They also pledge to work towards full traceability and transparency throughout their supply chains.
