Thank you for your contributions this week.

You started exploring the barriers to sustainable practices, with a focus on wild-capture fisheries.

We then discussed the challenges of aquaculture management, through steps on animal welfare and feed sourcing.

Finally, the third activity helped you better understand the consequences of unsustainable practices for both the environment & humans.

  • What was the highlight of the week for you?
  • Has your perception of sustainable seafood changed as a result of what you’ve learned?

Please let us know in the comments section below.

Next week, you’ll be introduced to solutions leading to more sustainable practices throughout the seafood value chain. We’ll explore opportunities to improve aquaculture & fisheries management, and discuss topics such as technology that minimises environmental impact, marine protected areas, and how new policies could shape the future of the seafood industry.

We look forward to resuming the conversation in week 3!
