The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions is a global organization committed to collaborating and creating change within the responsible seafood movement. We envision a just and equitable world where the production, trade, and consumption of seafood mitigates environmental impacts while providing food and sustaining livelihoods for seafood workers and communities.
To realize our vision, the Alliance believes it is critical that we work together to advocate for ocean health alongside human wellbeing; because we understand that one does not exist without the other.
The historical exclusion of those who hold traditional knowledge or are most affected by seafood production has led to single-issue approaches that deliver limited impact. But we know that by listening and deferring to groups with important experiences to share, we can begin to take a more integrated approach that addresses the root causes of the problems for which we seek solutions.
Sharing with one another about our work helps avoid duplication of effort and offers initiatives the best chance of success.
We can create large-scale change if we work together thoughtfully.
Respecting the knowledge and experience of all voices means we can have tough conversations in a safe container.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Alliance community has the potential for far-reaching and meaningful impact on equity within our organizations and in our work.
- Build anti-racism, equity, diversity, and inclusion practices and training into our organization while encouraging others to do the same.
- Recognize, engage, and elevate the voices of the BIPOC and other historically underrepresented communities.
- Learn, listen, and receive feedback as we take steps to create a ‘new normal’ that is better for the health of the ocean and more inclusive and equitable for seafood workers and communities.
