Summit to develop stakeholders to sustainable seafood movement

Saturday, September 09, 2017

Update: 4:11PM WWF-Pacific is partnering with the Ministry of Fisheries to host Fiji's first National Seafood Summit, providing a platform for key stakeholders in the seafood industry to develop and contribute to the sustainable seafood movement for Fiji.

Director Fisheries Aisake Batibasaga said the Fisheries Ministry fully supports the goals of the proposed sustainable seafood summit, which is to facilitate dialogue and partnerships between national stakeholders in the seafood industry to not only help define what a sustainable seafood industry in Fiji would look like but also explore ideas that will lead to a seafood marketplace that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.

"The Ministry recognises the opportunities for this summit to convene pioneers, newcomers and innovators in the seafood industry to develop and engage a sustainable seafood movement for Fiji which will greatly contribute to, and add value to the sustainability of the Fisheries sector in Fiji," Mr Batibasaga said.

The Summit will be held at Suva's Studio 6 on September 28, followed by half-day session and an Exhibition on the 29 at USP's Seafood Village.
