FMI has an active Sustainable Seafood Committee, with representatives from over 20 retailer and wholesaler member companies working together to help identify the issues, prioritize them and develop tools and resources most needed by our industry to help us under sustainable seafood and create good sourcing and customer tools and engagement strategies.
