Climatarian, flexitarian, pescatarian, plant-based? North American diets are changing, with a clear indication from recent consumer data that consumers are favoring plant-based and climate friendly foods. This is good news for the seafood industry as consumers report willingness to make necessary changes to support more planet-friendly diets.

While top motivators for seafood purchasing in the US and Canada continues to be health and quality, consumers report that they believe the choices they make about eating fish/seafood can make a difference to the health of our ocean. That’s where the seafood industry and certifications play an important role in making sustainable seafood an easy choice for consumers.

Join us for an interactive look at recent consumers data, marketing case studies, and a discussion on how seafood certifications and industry continue to move the needle on sustainability and ocean health.

The entire package of videos from Seafood Expo Global can also be purchased for USD 300 for non-members, and is free to SeafoodSource Premium members, through the Complete Digital Ticket: Seafood Expo Global 2023.
