Our next Common Language Group (CLG) bite-size meeting, will address misinformation as a key issue facing a responsible seafood supply chain.

Fisheries management has improved significantly over the past 30 years, and the whole seafood industry is working hard to limit its impact and improve transparency, but the seafood industry continues to make headlines for the wrong reasons.

The Netflix documentary 'Seaspiracy' questions the credibility and transparency of the sustainable seafood movement, and a recent Guardian article has put seafood fraud back in the spotlight once again. This Common Language Group (CLG) bite-size meeting will address misinformation as a key issue facing a responsible seafood supply chain.

Seafood Issues Groups

The CLG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion groups, which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood. They are an opportunity for all those involved in the seafood supply chain to reach a consensus on common issues.
