“A true Seafood Champion is a leader who demonstrates dedication to responsibility in the seafood industry,” said SeaWeb President Dawn Martin. “Each of this year’s winners is paving the way toward environmental, social and economic sustainability to ensure a healthy future for seafood.”

The Seafood Champion Awards recognize outstanding leadership in advancing the market for sustainable seafood. Nominated by the seafood community and judged by a panel that includes previous winners, the awards have been bestowed upon individuals, companies and organizations from the fishing, aquaculture, seafood supply and distribution, retail, media, restaurant and foodservice sectors.

The awards are presented each year at the seafood show by SeaWeb’s Seafood Choices program.
