Making Sustainability the Norm

Industry and conservation groups — once adversaries — now partner to advance practices and policies that are good for the oceans and the bottom line. While sustainability was once a complication for industry, it is now an integral part of running a modern seafood business.

But challenges remain. To make sustainability the norm, we must make the case for how industries benefit from sustainable fisheries, support partnerships that facilitate sustainability and develop tools to help industry — from fishermen to retailers — integrate sustainability into their core business practices.

The entire planet is basically run by the rhythms of the ocean. As go the oceans, so will the planet.
