Global Sustainability Manager
SeaBOS is working to put science-based and operational measures in place to reduce the risk of harm to endangered species and their habitats in fisheries, feeds and aquaculture operations and supply chains. SeaBOS companies and scientists will work together to develop and pilot science-based solutions including evaluation of novel technologies that can help monitor the status of endangered species, mitigate negative impacts or incentivize stewardship.
SeaBOS´ ambition is to align its work with global biodiversity goals and standards, including the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and work to develop and implement best practices in seafood production.
Maruha Nichiro Corporation has conducted their first comprehensive surveys to ascertain the volume of seafood products handled for raw materials and products procured from outside the Maruha Nichiro Group between April 2019 and March 2020. The survey covered fish species name, country of origin, fishing area (FAO fishing areas), weight and fishing method. The aggregated results were assessed by an external partner, the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership.
Contributing to the elimination of IUU fishing and forced labour in seafood production, and mitigating the impacts on endangered species.
Healthy ocean ecosystems and rich biodiversity are vital components of ocean stewardship. This Task Force focuses on developing practices that minimize impacts of seafood production on endangered species, and to develop solutions that enhance marine ecosystems.
To work with governments towards sustainable seafood production, as well as mechanisms to reduce antibiotics in aquaculture.
To identify global solutions to the impacts of climate change on sustainable seafood production, as well as the ability of seafood production for humanity, along with a healthy ocean, to play a role in the mitigation of, and adaptation to, climate change impacts.
