Sustainability issues in the global seafood supply chain

Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI)

Seafood ecolabelling and certification has long been an important and often sensitive issue for FAO member countries and the FAO capture fisheries and aquaculture guidelines have set benchmarks in the field. Effective implementation of ecolabelling and certification remains a challenge however, as demonstrated by the ongoing work by FAO to develop evaluation frameworks to measure performance of schemes against the guidelines. Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) will be making an important contribution to achieving comparability and transparency in seafood labelling and certification and considers that COFI will provide a valuable opportunity to present its goals and process to governments and other stakeholders and to invite comment. The proposed side-event would consist of a short presentation on the background and mission of GSSI and an overview of the benchmarking tool, currently under development, to measure and compare the performance of seafood certification and labeling programs in order to facilitate their implementation and use. After the presentation there will be statements from 3 or 4 partners in GSSI, representing different sectors in the seafood chain, in which they will explain why their organization is supportive of and is investing in GSSI. This will be followed by time for questions and discussion from the floor.
