The Unmet Need: Curating and Sharing Knowledge to Ignite Connections and Progress Seafood Traceability
SALT is a public-private partnership among USAID, the Walton Family, Packard, and Moore Foundations and is implemented by FishWise. SALT brings together the seafood industry, governments and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to accelerate learning and support collaboration on innovative solutions for legal and sustainable seafood, with a particular focus on traceability.
Over the last several years, many stakeholders have indicated a strong willingness to work together on seafood traceability to address IUU, particularly those aspects that no group can solve alone. Hence SALT was developed with the knowledge that this is a social, environmental, and economic issue. Central to our approach is the uniting of these conversations and work streams into one coherent dialogue, captured by a comprehensive and dynamic knowledge management system. SALT aims to fill gaps on information and knowledge that people need to more effectively implement traceability solutions.
