The 2022 Seafood Expo North America, which took place 13 to 15, March in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., and the 2022 Seafood Expo Global, 26 to 28 April, 2022, in Barcelona, Spain, featured a comprehensive conference program of live panel events focusing on topics chosen to be of vital interest to the seafood industry.

The 28 individual presentations from SENA and the 21 sessions from SEG featured exclusive information and insight from seafood industry experts, including economic forecasts and analysis on the trends and topics impacting the global seafood industry as it navigates issues of trade, food safety, traceability, aquaculture, sustainability, and consumption trends. Now, a video recording of each of these sessions is available for on-demand replay.

Featuring Global Salmon Initiative Convenor Avrim Lazar, BioMar CEO Carlos Diaz, Grieg Seafoods Global Communications Manager Kristina Furnes, WWF US Research Lead Specialist Emily Moberg, and Global Salmon Initiative CEO Sophie Ryan, “How to Not Only Set a Climate Target, but Actually Make it Achievable,” is available free for SeafoodSource Premium members or for individual purchase to non-Premium members for USD 40. It was presented on Tuesday, 26 April, with the following description:

The race to zero is on, and we know it needs to be done. But the question is how do we get there? Aquaculture already has a low carbon footprint, but improvements still need to be made to ensure we maintain our position as a climate-friendly option. The changes required are across the supply chain, and affect the whole industry, no matter of location. Recognizing that collective efforts could help accelerate change, over the last year the Global Salmon Initiative has been working in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund to establish an accounting framework for greenhouse gas emissions for the farmed salmon sector, from feed to consumer. Prioritizing stakeholder collaboration and shared learning, this project has developed a cohesive accounting framework with ambitious mitigation goals in mind. In this session we will share how the framework was developed, its uses for both farmed salmon and the wider aquaculture industry, and the many opportunities collaboration offers in scaling mitigation efforts from on the ground experience.

The entire package of videos from SENA and the entire package of videos from SEG can each be purchased for USD 250, but all are free to SeafoodSource Premium members.
