Seafood’s Forum for Economic, Environmental and Social Sustainability

Advancing a sustainable future for seafood and its stakeholders starts by highlighting critical sustainability topics on an international stage where diverse perspectives collaborate and flourish. Hosting the right people alongside stimulating conference sessions, field trips and networking events prompts innovative ideas, critical partnerships and crucial change to take form—making the Summit an opportunity stakeholders like you can’t afford to miss. 


Evolving Today’s Trends into Tomorrow’s Sustainable Markets

The SeaWeb Seafood Summit’s 13th edition will feature pre-conference events, conference sessions and field trips based around the theme of “Evolving Today’s Trends into Tomorrow’s Sustainable Markets”. As the global role of seafood continues to increase, so does the importance of establishing realistic and effective sustainability strategies today to secure the livelihood of this invaluable resource for tomorrow. Whether you are a fisherman, retail/business representative, government leader or academia/conservation community influencer, you represent an integral piece of the puzzle that is essential in building a promising future.

Not one sector or community is immune from the lasting negative effects of a diminishing seafood industry. Join the Summit to be among the voices and leaders that protect seafood and its world of stakeholders.
