FDA and U.S. Customs Update on Seafood Enforcement

Moderator: Peter Quinter, GrayRobinson, P.A.

Speakers: 
Dean Leaman, Certified Group
Todd Owen, Cross Border Advisory Network, LLC

The two major Federal law enforcement agencies, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (Customs) regulate the importation and distribution of seafood and fishery products in the United States. The FDA uses a methodology to target and inspect imported seafood, then allow it to proceed or refuse its entry into the United States. Customs also targets and inspects seafood shipments and has a new Withhold Release Order process to prohibit the importation of seafood made with forced labor. Customs continues collecting antidumping duties on shrimp from India, fish fillets from Vietnam, and many other seafood products from around the world. There are several penalties for importing misbranded or adulterated seafood. Learn how to lower your risk of being targeted and what to do when your seafood is selected for examination or your company has been added to the FDA's Import Alert list.

How Do Millennials Make Their Purchasing Decisions?

Moderator: Richard Stavis, Stavis Consulting

Speakers:
Luke Holden, Luke's Lobster
Rob Johnson, SeaPact
Nick Mendoza, Neptune Fish Jerky
Rob Snyder, Acme Smoked Fish
Megan Russell, Niceland Seafood

Are you focused on bringing the highest quality seafood to the market at a fair price? That may not be enough. Millennials are the most informed generation of consumers ever. More importantly, they make purchasing decisions based on their value systems. They may have varied priorities; some are focused on seafood sustainability, others on social performance, others on local or wild harvest. What they share is an expectation for honesty, communication and transparency from the companies and individuals who harvest or sell the seafood that they buy. Companies that do not anticipate the need to connect with this customer base won’t be able to catch up later; you can’t create authenticity on the fly. How do you evolve from a traditional seafood company to one that meets the needs of this new generation of consumers? This panel will break down the process of company self-assessment, creation of a values-based mission and vision as well as tips on how to successfully drive resilient change in organizations with established workforces. The moderator, Richard Stavis, will take an active role in this session, outlining both the need and the processes for resilient organizational change. Additional panelists will include industry leaders whose companies are values driven and have been successful in creating digital outreach and consistent messaging to consumers.

Moving from Traceability to Transparency: Diverse Stakeholders Driving Seafood Transparency Expansion

Moderator:
Sally Yozell, Stimson Center

Speakers:
Alexa Cole, NOAA Fisheries
Wakao Hanaoka, Seafood Legacy
Andy Hickman, Seafood Ethics Action (SEA) Alliance
Dr. John Virdin, Director, Duke University 

A lack of transparency pervades the seafood supply chain at every level, across both industrial and artisanal fishing, and aquaculture, impeding effective fish stock management and enforcement against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, as well as fair labor practices. The opaque nature of the seafood supply chain heightens the risk that distant water fleets, small-scale fishers, processors, and fishing companies may engage in IUU fishing and seafood fraud. Consumers want to know that the fish they purchase is not part of illicit activities, labor abuses or undermining seafood sustainability. Recognizing that transparency must be broadly adopted throughout the seafood supply chain at all levels, there has been growing engagement by a wide set of international stakeholders. This panel will explore changes in the market expectations and the latest efforts to expand seafood transparency by civil society, industry, and government. It will also highlight new findings and recommendations from a forthcoming comparative study of transparency initiatives adopted in non-seafood sectors that can offer valuable lessons to increase the reach and effectiveness of seafood transparency initiatives. To combat IUU fishing and gain a greater understanding of the seafood industry’s impact on fisheries sustainability, labor practices, and the economic security of coastal states, there is a growing demand for publicly available information about fishing industry practices and operations.
