Outreach to Markets at Seafood Expo North America

At the Seafood Expo North America, Corey Peet and Timothy Moore and two members of the FIP Protocol Steering Committee, Duncan Leadbitter of Fish Matter and Crab Council Liaison Jeremy Crawford, hosted a group of about 30 people to provide the rationale, steps for development, approximate timeline, and opportunities for input for both projects. Attendees included ENGO’s, buyers, philanthropic organizations, and some ASEAN producer associations. The result of the meeting was general support for the process moving forward although concerns about how to position this work within the current certification landscape were noted.
