Speaking of Seafood

Speaking of Seafood aims to create value for sustainability by amplifying replicable industry success stories while engaging issue-leaders to guide the way. The result is a powerful asset: a tool to help you “brand” sustainable seafood as successful, positive and valuable—whether you are a consumer or buyer of seafood

Seafood stakeholders have voiced a need for a reliable source for consolidated information about sustainable seafood. While some content is available on websites and in the seafood trade media, there is no single, go-to source for information about seafood sustainability. At the same time, relevant stories about sustainability leaders’ work and their success stories are not reaching a broad enough audience. Speaking of Seafood’s goal is to address these communications gaps.  Read more >>

Summit Scholars

SeaWeb’s Summit Scholars Program provides financial, professional development, and administrative support to individuals from targeted stakeholder groups, to allow them to attend the SeaWeb Seafood Summit. These under-represented voices bring valuable perspectives into the sustainability dialogue at the Summit, and in turn take ideas and knowledge from the Summit back to their home communities.

Scholars receive full or partial funding for travel expenses, Seafood Summit registration, and lodging while at the Summit. At the Summit, Scholars are paired with sustainability leaders who are available to provide support in broadening their understanding of issues and to introduce them to stakeholders with shared interests. Scholars meet for orientation, networking, a Q&A session with sustainability experts, and a focus group on insights gained at the Summit. After the Summit, Scholars share viewpoints from their home communities and are invited to participate in quarterly networking calls. View PDF >>
