FMI members support programs to promote a sustainable seafood supply.

To achieve this goal FMI encourages the following:

  1. Learn about the issues that relate to seafood sustainability and how they can be applied within companies.
  2. Utilize sustainable seafood resources available from FMI and others to educate company and store associates.
  3. Consider the sustainability of the seafood supply in the development of company procurement policies.
  4. Explore sustainable seafood certification programs.
  5. Recognize that the treatment of workers in the seafood supply chain presents unique challenges that the industry can help address.
  6. Engage with supply chain partners, governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to advocate for seafood to be harvested and processed in a socially and environmentally responsible manner that promotes the long-term health and sustainability of the resource.

FMI will work in partnership with the seafood industry, environmental organizations and other experts to develop guidelines to promote the long-term viability of the world’s seafood supply.
