FishWise at SENA 2023

See You in Boston!


FishWise staff will be at Seafood Expo North America (SENA) in Boston, MA, from March 12-14. We are eager to share and collaborate on our sustainability, traceability, and social responsibility projects. Staff from each FishWise division will be on-site, and we look forward to connecting, so please email the staff listed below us to set up meetings.

FishWise works to sustain ocean ecosystems and the people who depend on them by transforming global seafood supply chains. The pathways we utilize to pursue our mission are direct supply chain engagement, policy and advocacy, and collective engagement and strategic partnerships.
