The challenge:

Feeding almost 10 billion people in the year 2050 will require innovative, collaborative, and viable solutions that consider political and economic uncertainty, growing pressure on natural resources, and climate change.

What can be done?

Substantial scientific evidence suggests seafood, both farmed and wild, has the potential to significantly contribute to food security on a global scale amidst these changes, if sustainable practices are widely implemented throughout supply chains.  Such an approach supports vibrant and resilient ocean and freshwater ecosystems that contribute to improved livelihoods, healthy communities, and food security, while also protecting human rights, dignity, and access to resources for future generations. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), governmental entities, and the seafood industry must align and foster best practices. The cultivation of an enabling business environment that drives supply chain actors to align their behavior with best practices and credibly document their efforts is essential if sustainability is to become the norm.

How Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions is meeting the challenge:

The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions is a community of organizations that believe seafood production is a powerful driver of change for the health and biodiversity of our oceans and the economic and social well-being of individuals and communities around the world. With a shared understanding of the changes that need to happen to successfully transform the seafood supply chain, the Alliance works together to accelerate and increase the overall collective impact of our community.
