We recently released an update to the Collaboration’s Sustainable Seafood Data Tool, offering the most complete picture ever of the sustainability performance of worldwide seafood production. The new release shows that the reach of contributing programs increased from 38% of global production in 2020 to 40% in 2022. Worldwide production was nearly 214 million metric tons in the 2022 version
In the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, how have Collaboration members been supporting these sectors? The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2022 to be the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture. But what are artisanal fisheries and fish farms, and why are they important? There’s no one universal definition for “artisanal” or “small-scale” in seafood production.
