Global Sustainable Supply Chains for Marine Commodities

Project Objective: Overfishing is in part the result of market pressure because of growing seafood demand. Market tools have been used to motivate that the demand focuses on sustainable sources, however sustainable seafood products are still a small share of the market. The project will contribute to the transformation of the market by mainstreaming sustainability in the value chain of important seafood commodities from developing countries, improving emerging tools such as corporate sustainable purchase policies and FIPs, motivating changes in national fisheries policy for improved fisheries administration, and generating learnings to be shared worldwide.
