Save the Date!

The COVID-19 pandemic surfaced what major transformation is needed to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal 14, Life Below Water. This is why this year’s UN Ocean Conference is more important than ever—to bring global stakeholders together to start a new chapter of global ocean action. SALT is pleased to announce that it is hosting an official virtual side event Seafood Traceability: Utilizing Data and Collaboration for Triple Bottom Line Impact on June 28th (1:00 – 2:30pm Lisbon, Portugal / 8:00 – 9:30 am  Washington DC, U.S.).  Please join us to learn how seafood traceability can strengthen fisheries management, support equitable human welfare conditions, and prevent illegal products from entering domestic and international markets. Speakers will include SALT staff, representatives from the Ministry Livestock and Fisheries in Tanzania, and a U.S. government representative.

With support from FishWise's Social Responsibility team, we added a great deal of new resources focusing on human and labor rights and supply chain due diligence this month. Here are some of them:

ILO Indicators of Forced Labor 
(International Labor Organization)

Responsible Sourcing Tool

(The State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, Verité, Made in a Free World, and the Aspen Institute)

Community Feature 

Fisheries transparency Initiative - TAKING STOCK 

 FiTI has worked with several governments to assess the level of fishing regulations and data that are transparent and accessible to the public. FiTI's new program, TAKING STOCK – Online Transparency of Fisheries Management Information, provides a useful baseline for countries beginning to increase transparency in fisheries management.

Stay Tuned...

SALT’s Seascape Map has featured over 235 traceability, counter-illegal fishing, and social responsibility efforts all around the world since its launch in 2019. Last year, we conducted a survey to ask the community how we can improve this online tool. We are excited to announce that we are launching Seascape 2.0 this summer! Updates will include a new regional filter to enable country-specific search, an option to search counter-IUU regulations, and more. Stay tuned for more updates!
