Research to Advance Change

At FishWise, we use scientific research and collaborative resources to build innovative tools that advance change in the seafood industry. By working together with supply chain stakeholders, NGOs, government officials, and academic researchers we promote marine conservation by increasing the availability of sustainable seafood. In the interests of fostering trust across sectors, FishWise strives to work with publicly available, transparent methods to find solutions that serve both industry and the environment.

Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions

FishWise is a founding member of the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions – a group of sixteen leading conservations groups across the U.S. and Canada that have joined forces to pursue a future of sustainable seafood. Within the Alliance, there is growing recognition that innovative tools are needed to help members of the supply line to navigate the complexities of sustainable seafood. To this end, FishWise has helped to develop the Common Vision for Sustainable Seafood, that articulates six key steps that businesses can take to help ensure a long-term seafood supply and is participating in a series of collaborative projects, from building consumer demand for sustainable seafood to investigating traceability systems. These projects are designed to leverage the expertise of the diverse member organizations, to ultimately transform seafood markets and affect change on the water.
