Financial institution guidance: sustainable seafood production

Publication date


This document lays out the scientific and business cases for why and how companies should act to minimise the environmental and social impacts associated with the production of seafood. These expectations are intended to assist financial institutions to engage companies around the potentially negative impacts of fishing and aquaculture. The expectations are aimed at the boards of companies producing or procuring seafood, and are a starting point for discussion between financial institutions and companies on these issues. The expectations are relevant for all companies involved in seafood supply chains, acknowledging that some expectations are more relevant for certain parts of the supply chain.
