Task force leader


  • Reduce our own greenhouse gas emissions by setting time-bound goals on climate (committed to SBTi)

SeaBOS works within this task force addresses the complexity and diversity of climate change impacts on sustainable seafood production and seeks to pilot and develop corresponding solutions to build resilience. Climate change mitigation activities are another key focus of this Task Force, as well as demonstrating how sustainable seafood production and a healthy ocean can play a positive role for humanity in the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change impacts.

Sustainable Development Goal 14: conserve and sustainable use use of the oceans, seas and marine resources
