Developing a system that drives sustainable financing in fisheries is a challenge that seems to touch on so many other challenges in seafood – a lack of data and traceability, fragmented supply chains, the challenge of engaging small-scale producers, environmental and social risk, and markets and economic models that do not provide fair and equitable distribution of resources throughout the supply chain. Despite this collection of hurdles there are opportunities and lessons learned to help guide a more effective system of finance to support responsible and sustainable practices and production in seafood. This session will discuss some of the work in seafood that can be built upon, opportunities for greater impact and lessons learned.
