How sustainable seafood will thrive in a circular economy

 19 Dec 2017

Sustainability and the notion of a circular economy is high on both the industry and consumer radar. One of the most important sustainability platforms relates to fish & seafood. In just under 60 years seafood production increased from a mere 19.3 million tons in 1950 to 163 million tons in 2009. Friend of the Sea was started by Paolo Bray, the European Director of the Earth Island Institute Dolphin-Safe tuna project. More recently, the group expanded into the sustainable agriculture space with the launch of the Friend of the Earth certification scheme in 2015. FoodIngredientsFirst spoke to Paolo about the future of sustainable fishing and the role for certification schemes.
