The 2023 conference program will feature more than 20 educational sessions presented by top seafood industry experts.
Join in for an interactive session hosted by Nafiha Usman, Principal Aquaculture Analyst, DNV. We will provide insight and engage you in a discussion on sustainable seafood production challenges, how aquaculture and fishery companies work to address them and how certification and data-driven assurance can contribute.
The seafood industry is central to the blue economy. While fisheries and aquaculture companies have different challenges, they converge over food security and a continued food supply. To feed a growing population, aquaculture must grow at the same time as fisheries must become more sustainable. This increases pressure on our ecosystems and demands on natural resources. Balanced use of natural resources from both land and sea is essential to increase sustainable seafood production while protecting our ecosystems and biodiversity.
In such a landscape, demands of increased supply chain resilience and transparency are also growing. And all companies part of the seafood value chain must respond. Standards and independent certifications like MSC Fishery, ASC Feed and ASC Farm, GlobalGAP Aqua and Chain of Custody already play a critical role.
Our experts are excited to talk to you about the most important and timely issues relevant to today’s seafood business environment.
