How the Executive Order on Seafood Expands U.S. Aquaculture Opportunities
Launch of Seafood Map: Global Industry Program to Accelerate Sustainable Seafood
Aquaculture is projected to represent 62 percent of human seafood consumption by 2030, which means that an additional 40 million metric tons of farmed seafood must be produced to quench the world’s appetite for fish. However, aquaculture faces some major challenges if it's to grow in a responsible manner. For this webinar, the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s Steven Hedlund and Molly Jacques will discuss how to tackle the three biggest challenges impeding aquaculture’s growth – animal disease management, fair treatment of workers, and consumer awareness – as well as the GAA’s approach to responsible aquaculture. Attendees can expect to gain a better understanding of third-party aquaculture certification and the pre-competitive activities that organizations and businesses can get involved in to advance the responsible aquaculture movement.
In June 2016, voters in the United Kingdom approved a referendum removing the country from the European Union. The British exit - or Brexit - from the E.U. will have a wide-reaching impact on the seafood industry. In this webinar, SeafoodSource Contributing Editor Jason Holland and Scottish Fisherman's Federation Chief Executive Bertie Armstrong will give an overview on the basics of Brexit, explore the opportunities and drawbacks of the decision, and offer insight and predictions on what comes next for the U.K.'s fishing and seafood industries.
Exploring the 2022 Power of Seafood report with FMI – The Food Industry Association
It's been a year since Thailand dropped to Tier 3 on the U.S. State Department's Trafficking In Persons Report, in part due to the country's lack of controlling the ongoing problem of human trafficking in the fishing industry. What's changed? Have things improved? Recent media reports show the problem still exists, and importers at the other end of the supply chain need to consider their options to prevent being connected to this kind of behavior. In this webinar, we'll talk about just what importers can do to safeguard their seafood supply chains.

In less than a decade, cell-cultured seafood has gone from a niche idea to a multi-million-dollar industry attracting investment from some of the largest companies in the world. While there are still plenty of obstacles between cell-cultured seafood and full-scale commercialization, the industry has seen increasingly rapid progress as multiple companies all work to improve the process and begin production at scale. As the industry grows, it also must begin addressing some of the overarching questions that are still yet to be answered in the industry.

Consumers are increasingly aware of their impact on the environment and specifically the impact of their consumption habits on environmental health. This is true for seafood consumers as well, with data showing consumers want more sustainable options. Consumers also demonstrated the importance of seafood to them and their families during a year of lockdowns and quarantines in 2020 with record sales of seafood. How can we leverage a consumer shift in awareness and desire to shop better for themselves and for the planet and move the sustainable seafood industry forward? Hear from industry, NGOs, and donors working hard to make sustainable seafood an easy option for consumers, and how they’re approaching sustainability and seafood consumers differently in response to COVID.
