Funder: Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
This white paper aims to serve as a resource for businesses, NGOs, and other seafood stakeholders as they plan and implement traceability and anti-IUU fishing protocols within supply chains. It summarizes the seafood traceability landscape, key international and regional policies and regulations, and steps that seafood businesses can take to improve the traceability of seafood within their supply chains. It also provides information about some of the conservation organizations, for-profit companies, certifications, and other players currently working to support the adoption of end-to-end, electronic, interoperable traceability in the North American market.
