Seafood Expo North America, though I assure you that I will continue to write about seafood issues, inspired by items I learned or discovered at the Expo. For this post, I wanted to raise some final questions about seafood issues, thoughts which have struck me this past week. Each of those points is worthy of a full post, but time is needed for the ideas to percolate and come to fruition. Some of these thoughts touch on important themes at the Expo, as well as potential themes for the future. I would love for these final ponderings to develop into conversations and I welcome all comments about these matters.
Toothfish is a powerful example of what industry and conservationists working together can accomplish. The new GSI and Sea Pact show growing partnerships, seeking sustainability, which are willing to share technology, information and ideas. They pose great potential for jointly resolving problems that plague the industry. Other such partnerships are likely to form in the near future too. This may be the wave of the future, partnerships working as one to fight the greatest issues of the seafood industry.
