Seafood Blue Finance: Investor-Led Engagement in Seafood Sector

Boat fishing nets

This panel is part of the Tokyo Sustainable Seafood Summit 2023, which brings together diverse stakeholders focused on sustainable ocean food systems, protecting the environment, and promoting growth in the seafood sector.

During the session, Jo Raven, Director of Thematic Research & Corporate Innovation at the FAIRR Initiative, will present the newly launched Seafood Traceability Engagement with 7 major seafood companies. This new collaborative investor engagement aims to encourage major seafood companies to develop and implement robust, full-chain traceability systems as a means of identifying and addressing key environmental and social risks – such as illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, overfishing, habitat conversion and human rights issues – and unlocking sustainable opportunities, in global seafood supply chains.

This initiative was co-launched earlier this year by FAIRR alongside a coalition of five conservation and biodiversity-focused organisations.

The session will be moderated by Mariko Kawaguchi, Rikkyo University.
