About the Organization FishWise is a sustainable seafood consultancy that promotes the health and recovery of ocean ecosystems through environmentally and socially responsible practices. FishWise uses market-based approaches to achieve responsible business practices and create change on the water. This science-based and business-appropriate approach has allowed FishWise to build partnerships and strong working relationships with industry, government, and NGOs that seek to address the greatest challenges in seafood sustainability. The Seafood Alliance for Legality and Traceability (SALT) is an anticipated five-year project that will engage a vast network of participants, including market-state governments, source country governments, industry, and other stakeholders seeking to improve traceability in seafood supply chains. To begin the work, FishWise and a third-party consultant, will lead an extensive co-design process. USAID, the Walton Family Foundation and other funders, and a cross-sector group of leaders will provide extensive input in the co-design, while other stakeholders will be invited to participate at various steps in the process. The desired result of SALT is to create a collaboration platform that leads to improvements in fisheries sustainability and marine biodiversity through enhanced traceability and transparency that enables and incentivizes stronger fisheries management and increased industry self-regulation. SALT will work toward the achievement of these goals: Expand accessible, interoperable, electronic catch documentation and traceability. Increase source country capacities to apply electronic catch documentation and traceability to strengthen fisheries management and to verify fisheries data within these systems. Increase incentives and capacities for industry to apply electronic traceability to ensure the legality of wild-caught fisheries products in their supply chains. These outcomes will be achieved through increased collaboration, application and scaling of good practices for traceability and transparency, fisheries management, as well as responsible business processes through engagement in a multi-stakeholder community of practice. Targeted and facilitated learning within and between pilot sites will also be a key strategy to achieve the outcomes.
