The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions connects leading conservation groups that work with businesses representing over 80% of the North American grocery and food-service markets.

In 2008, businesses were just getting started with sustainable seafood. That year, the Conservation Alliance released the Common Vision, a roadmap with six steps companies can take to develop and implement sustainable seafood policies. Today, 15 of the top 20 North American retailers have made commitments to buy and sell sustainable seafood. They are now working closely with Conservation Alliance groups to fulfill these commitments, which include tracing seafood to where it was caught or farmed and working with suppliers to get fisheries and farms to make improvements.

Conservation Alliance members and collaborators work collectively to tackle challenges that are too big for any one organization or business to solve alone. We share expertise and develop tools that help businesses advance their sustainable seafood commitments.

We believe that steady progress on businesses’ sustainable seafood commitments now will mean healthier oceans can deliver a stable supply of seafood for decades to come.

“Cross-sector partnerships are essential to protecting our oceans and seafood supplies. The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions has offered valuable advice and practical tools to help businesses like Target move ahead on sustainable seafood.”

Lisa Boyd, Senior Group Manager, Food Social Responsibility, Target
