Seafood and Human Health: The Science Behind Increasing Consumption Sustainably
Speakers: Darian McBain, Thai Union; Wenche Gronbrekk, Cermaq; Henrik Österblom, Stockholm University; Jose Villalon, Nutreco
The aim of the newly created SeaBOS initiative is to stimulate industry leadership for ocean stewardship in accordance with best available science. SeaBOS is the result of a science-based identification of “keystone actors” in global seafood, carried out by the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) of Stockholm University and published in 2015. The members represent aquaculture, wild-capture fisheries, and the feed industry. The SRC has facilitated and coordinated the work of SeaBOS since 2016, but is now transferring this role to the companies themselves.

Can Online Ordering and eCommerce Work for You and Your Customers?
Sustainability is the mega trend of our time. Climate change and resource depletion are impacting all industries, the Fishing industry included. The transformation towards a more sustainable future started with consumers and customers expect improved sustainability performance and concrete actions along the value chains. The sustainability driven regulatory development is accelerating the transformation and forcing industries to adopt more sustainable practices. One of the key challenges for the fishing industry is to scale up the use of renewable materials in their value chains e.g. reduction of plastic packaging. According to the European Commission plastics make up 80-85% of marine litter by count, and a substantial part of that is single-use plastics. The single-use plastics directive is for instance designed to address this type of global problems and it is up to the industry to adapt to the change. Early adopters of sustainable solutions will be the winners of the future. Companies that are responsive to these expectations, and have the ability to adapt and adjust to these increasing requirements early on will obtain significant business advantages. In our presentation, we will share the sustainability trends and how they are impacting the fishing industry value chains. We will support this with practical examples from the perspective of customers, consumers, as well as regulators.
