The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions is proud to welcome its newest community members, Seafood Legacy, Future of Fish and the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. Each new organization brings a unique perspective and invaluable set of resources to the greater Alliance community, which connects more than 35 organizations who work with businesses to solve sustainable seafood’s biggest challenges.
Seafood Legacy is the first Japanese organization to become an official collaborator of the Alliance. Their mission is to support sustainable seafood businesses and environmental organizations in Japan and around the world.
“We’re excited to add these new organizations to our growing community of seafood conservation groups,” says Frazer McGilvray, Executive Director of the Conservation Alliance. “It reflects not only an increased commitment to collective action across the seafood sector, but the start of collaborative efforts to work globally.”
Future of Fish identifies and develops investable, scalable, systems-level fisheries solutions that lead to long-term preservation of stocks and the livelihoods that depend on them.
“Like the fisheries we work with, we as an organization depend on partners and allies to help us execute our work,” said Future of Fish Strategy Director, Keith Flett. “The Alliance helps us build strong relationships with potential collaborators, and keeps us up to date with the latest initiatives and developments in the seafood world.”
Virginia Aquarium joined the Alliance to broaden their reach within the sector. “Working with the Alliance provides an opportunity for us to implement sustainable practices in our community and on a larger scale with a wide network of partners,” according to Leslie Clements of the Sensible Seafood Program at Virginia Aquarium.
