The business of sustainable seafood
At SFP, we believe that the business of sustainability is everyone’s business. That’s why we work with actors throughout the seafood supply chain to ensure that best practices are implemented, all voices are heard, and improvement efforts stick and lead to tangible results on the water. Our 2022-23 annual report, The Business of Sustainable Seafood, highlighted some of our successes and achievements from that approach.
Supply Chain Roundtables expand seafood sector sustainability efforts
Our Supply Chain Roundtables (SRs) bring together major seafood buyers and suppliers to work together pre-competitively to scale-up sustainability in specific seafood sectors. Highlights from 2023 included:
SFP science supports seafood sustainability
SFP’s Science and Fisheries teams expanded their contributions to the science of seafood sustainability in 2023.
SFP tools power industry commitments and accountability
- A new score in SFP’s Seafood Metrics allows seafood buyers to easily identify fisheries with bycatch of endangered, threatened, and protected (ETP) species. The ETP risk score, which is designed to align with our Protecting Ocean Wildlife initiative, is one of four new scores recently added to FishSource to measure environmental and biodiversity impacts.
- Good Chop, a US-based meat and seafood home delivery subscription service, and Canadian food retailer METRO began publishing details of their wild-caught and farmed seafood sourcing in the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP) in 2023.
