Set against the landscape of a changing world order – across global politics, markets and environmental change – this year’s Summit theme of “Evolving Solutions for New Horizon’s” poses the question: in what ways can the seafood community continue the momentum and further advance sustainability solutions?

– Live seafood trade
– Food security and livelihoods
– Keystone species, including sharks, tuna, and salmon
– Consumer demand and awareness

– Financing the future of seafood

In addition to the full program, there will be three pre-Summit workshops on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 to explore the future of seafood ecolabelling, investment in sustainable seafood & ocean restoration, and the status of shark finning. Although the workshops are free of charge to registered Summit attendees, participants interested in attending the workshops must also register through the Summit registration page.

The field trip “The Real China Aquaculture Experience” will take place September 8- 11, 2012, and will provide a firsthand look at the challenges and opportunities of aquaculture production in China. Space is limited on this field trip, so be sure to register soon.
