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
In accordance with its Leading the Blue Revolution plan, Mowi has established a climate target in accordance with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) framework. Nearly 70% of Mowi´s farming sites in Norway are connected to land power. In 2021, Mowi also installed 8 hybrid generators leading to an estimated reduction of GHG emissions of 1500 tonnes of CO2e per year.
To reduce GHG emissions, Kyokuyo selected non-freon refrigeration for its Fukuoka cold storage facility. This choice will contribute to reducing freon emissions and about 350M/T of annual CO2 emissions. The Kyokuyo Group will continue to shift to refrigeration alternatives with a lower environmental footprint.
Through its SeaFurther Sustainability Initiative, Cargill’s Aqua Nutrition business is aiming to help seafood farmers reduce their Scope 3 GHG emissions by at least 30 percent by 2030 against a 2017 baseline. Cargill focuses on three pillars for reducing the footprint of its feed: Sourcing of low carbon raw materials, optimization of nutrition relative to GHG footprint, and animal health and welfare to ensure optimal sustainability.
Following collaboration within the global salmon industry, Brazilian soy suppliers CJ Selecta, Caramuru and Imcopa have agreed to implement a 100% deforestation and conversion-free soybean value chain with 2020 as their cut-off date. This is the first time an animal protein industry has set such a voluntary and sector wide benchmark to ensure a deforestation free supply chain.
Reduce our own greenhouse gas emissions.

Contributing to the elimination of IUU fishing and forced labour in seafood production, and mitigating the impacts on endangered species.
To promote and illustrate the leadership taken by SeaBOS in leading the global transformation towards sustainable seafood production, and improving ocean health.
To work with governments towards sustainable seafood production, as well as mechanisms to reduce antibiotics in aquaculture.
To develop clear governance, staffing and funding mechanisms, as well as monitoring and tracking of progress, transparency of reporting by SeaBOS members.
To identify ways to improve ocean health through removal and prevention of plastics into the marine environment as well as re-use, recycling and alternative materials.
