Our oceans are an endless source of wonder and possibility. Their health also dictates the fate of our planet. Currently, it’s the Wild West on the open sea as overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change threaten the very existence of marine life – and our own. With the global population expected to grow to nearly 10 billion people in the next 30 years, we simply must find a sustainable way forward. And we can… by eating MORE for right types of fish, seafood and seaweed. Saving the Seas: Can We Eat Our Way Out of Crisis? is a panel that will explore a provocative solution to an urgent issue. Over the course of the last year, led by The Lexicon, Google and GSSI, over a hundred participants have come together to build a connected market tool. This group represents a coalition of fishers, water farmers, scientists and conservationists, supermarkets, restaurants, food service companies, designers, storytellers, and entrepreneurs who share a vision to restore our ocean ecosystems and create a more equitable food system. One that recognizes the vital contributions of fishers and water farmers and provides a suite of tools that measure and validate ecosystem benefits so that buyers can match their dollars with their values. Join us as we share the process, how the group came together and what the future holds!
Recently, the U.S. State Department downgraded Thailand to Tier 3 in the department’s annual Trafficking in Persons Report. At the same time, media reports have drawn an embarrassing connection between well-meaning seafood importers and fishing boats in Thailand that support human trafficking. In this webinar, we’ll go over just how bad the trafficking problem is, and what you can do to ensure that human slavery isn’t touching your supply chain.

Session Description: 2020 was an unprecedented year for the U.S. seafood sector due to the impacts of COVID-19. Fishermen, growers, processors, and the broader seafood sector nationally suffered revenue losses and market and trade disruptions, and scrambled to pivot to new markets. In this session, NOAA officials examine key issues, policies, impacts, and advancements critical to building a more resilient U.S. seafood sector—both fished and farmed—and how rebuilding will continue to play out in 2021 and beyond. NOAA officials also discuss new opportunities for U.S. aquaculture in 2021 and new, federally led efforts to combat Illegal, Unregulated, and Unreported fishing.
Speakers: Benjamin England, FDAImports.com, LLC; Steve Bloodgood, US Food And Drug Administration; Troy Petrillo, US Food And Drug Administration; Jessica Rifkin, Benjamin L. England & Associates, LLC and FDAImports.com, LLC
The session will explore FDA’s and Customs’ inspection and audit processes for seafood processors and importers and seafood import shipments. Hear from FDA and Customs officials on what to expect in 2019, what they think is important, and why. Pick up tips on what you should be doing to make these inspections go more smoothly. Learn what seafood importers should avoid to reduce the risk of Customs actions. With the support of reality-based case studies, this panel will explore the importance of integrating regulatory compliance across many agency jurisdictions – and the potential pitfalls for seafood processors and importers. Hear how Custom’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) acts as a Single Window for Multi-Agency Enforcement. The panel will also discuss how new and renewed free trade agreements and tariff changes inform agency inspections and data requests and impact the seafood industry in particular.
Many obstacles block the development of a more robust aquaculture industry in southern California, including a complex permitting system and laws restricting finfish farms in state waters. Undaunted, James Morris and Paul Olin have been on the forefront of a movement aimed at developing a larger aquaculture industry in California. Morris, a marine ecologist with NOAA’s National Ocean Service and The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, and Olin, an aquaculture specialist with California Sea Grant in Scripps Institution of Oceanography, part of the University of California, San Diego, recently spoke about the findings of two workshops covered in a report published by the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach that explored the challenges to growing California’s aquaculture industry. In the webinar, Olin and Morris will discuss the findings of the workshops, as well as possible solutions to problems facing the aquaculture industry in California, the United States and globally.
University of Washington School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences Professor Ray Hilborn is considered one of the foremost fisheries researchers in the world.
