Alliance Annual Conference



The Alliance is thrilled to announce that our Annual Conference will make its return to an in-person event this October. Each year, the conference convenes attendees from leading NGOs, businesses, foundations, and academia united in the belief that if we work together, responsible seafood production and trade can protect our ocean and the people who depend on it.

The Annual Conference is an invaluable opportunity to learn about emerging trends in the responsible seafood movement, bring visibility to your environmental and social responsibility efforts, and forge strategic partnerships with old and new colleagues.


This year’s conference agenda includes plenary sessions that highlight cross-organizational initiatives, global partnerships, and projects; workshop sessions that leverage the expertise and feedback of those in attendance to improve their tools or solutions; and lightning round sessions that present a call to action, share lessons learned from projects, partners on the ground, or in different sectors, and present opportunities to collaborate. 

We’ve also reserved time for networking, sharing meals, and exploring the San Juan area with your colleagues.


We are excited to host our meeting in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel, where old-world, lively vibes and peaceful ocean views all meet. Located just minutes from the airport, this resort is an oasis on the award-winning Isla Verde Beach and celebrates San Juan’s elegance, both past and present, seamlessly.  Click below for room block information.

To enjoy the full conference experience, we suggest arriving by 4 pm on Monday and departing after 2 pm on Thursday.
