Partnership and collaboration are vital.
This ensures that our efforts achieve consensus within the seafood industry and the wider conservation community, and broadens the audience for our work.
Sea Pact is a collaborative group of leading North American seafood companies dedicated to driving stewardship and continuous improvement of social, economic, and environmental responsibility throughout the global seafood supply chain.

The GMC project is an interregional initiative implemented by the Ministries and Bureaus of Fisheries and Planning of Costa Rica, Ecuador, Indonesia, and the Philippines, to improve fisheries sustainability and increase global demand for sustainable seafood. The project is facilitated by SFP, has the technical support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
This collaboration brings together five global seafood certification and ratings programs to coordinate our efforts and increase our impact. Our co-members of C&R include the Aquaculture Stewardship Council, Fair Trade USA, the Marine Stewardship Council, and Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program. As part of C&R, we have developed the Sustainable Seafood Data Tool, which consolidates data from the five programs to provide NGOs and businesses a more comprehensive look at seafood sustainability.
The Alliance connects leading conservation groups from the Americas, Europe, and Japan. SFP has been a part of CASS since it was established and is a member of the Advisory Board. Together with our CASS partners, we created the Common Vision - six steps that companies can take to develop and implement sustainable seafood policies.
