Henrik Österblom, professor at Stockholm University and director of The Anthropocene Laboratory, and co-author of the publication Transnational Corporations as ‘Keystone Actors’ in Marine Ecosystems that initiated the SeaBOS (Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship) initiative back in 2015, is featured in The Financial Times. The article describes the progress made by SeaBOS companies, which produce 10% of global seafood and employ more than 200 000 people through 600 subsidiaries worldwide.
“We collaboratively identify priorities and strategies based on science, set ambitious goals and support them (the seafood companies) with the knowledge and expertise they need to deliver tangible outcomes on their commitments. […] We are convinced that these seafood companies can help achieve a healthy ocean ecosystem that produces abundant raw materials in thriving and resilient ecosystems.”
SeaBOS is a collaborative initiative leading a science-based global transformation towards sustainable seafood production and a healthy ocean. Later this year (November), we’re publishing our Impact report, providing a more comprehensive overview of the progress and impact made by SeaBOS to date.
