SeaBOS progress report launch: Lessons learned since 2017
At the first UN Ocean Conference in 2017, a unique collaboration was announced between science and ten of the largest seafood companies in the world, called SeaBOS, with a mission to lead a global transformation for sustainable seafood production and a healthy ocean.
Five years’ later, this report launch will focus on progress made, challenges faced, and opportunities identified. The session will also discuss the role of sustainable seafood in helping to ensure food security, address climate change and support ocean health – and the role of science-industry collaboration in making this happen.
