The Fishing for tomorrow - SUSTAINABLE FISHING conference theme:
Eighty percent of global seafood stocks are currently over-exploited or totally fished out, yet in recent years seafood become the most traded global food commodity. The decline in seafood stocks has significant business implications and action needs to be taken to preserve these stocks to avoid the collapse of industries as well as eco-systems. This session brings some of SA’s major retailers, seafood suppliers, and conservation organisations together to address the challenges and look at solutions that are sustainable for business, the fishermen and the environment.
