Map and Directions

We are pleased to confirm that The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership will be hosting the fourth annual Americas Fisheries Forum on Tuesday, February 9th, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Miami, Florida. Once again, this invitation-only sustainable seafood event is offered exclusively for SFP Partners, select suppliers to our Partners, and key industry representatives. We are making the 2016 event a true Americas Forum by including new partners and stakeholders from Mexico and Central and South America.

In 2014, over 200 participants gathered and discussed important seafood issues at the Fisheries Forum in Las Vegas. In addition to celebrating SFPs 10th Anniversary, the 2016 agenda will include topics such as the innovative Ocean Disclosure Project, social responsibility, and the ever-changing and expanding landscape of improvement projects. The Americas Forum will continue to include a trade show that will allow additional stakeholders - NGOs, industry, and service providers - to share information on seafood sustainability standards and certifications, to showcase improvement projects, and to promote Fishery and Aquaculture Improvement Project (FIP/AIP) implementation and sustainability support services.

The registration fee is $400 per person. To register for the Forum, click here: SFP Americas Fisheries Forum 2016 (please select “supplier/invited guest” from the Registrant Type menu, unless otherwise instructed). For accommodations please visit the Hyatt Regency Miami’s website. Space is limited this year so please be sure to register early!
