Map and Directions

Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) is thrilled to announce the Global Fisheries & Aquaculture Forum 2019 focusing on the Target 75 initiative. The forum will be held on February 6–7, 2019 at the Pullman Miami Airport Hotel in Miami, Florida, US.

Building on the success of our previous Americas and European forums, the Target 75 Global Forum will be even bigger and better, bringing together leaders in the seafood industry from around the world who are blazing the trail toward the goal of 75 percent of the world’s seafood by volume produced in a manner that can be labeled sustainable or improving, all by the end of 2020.

Together, we will celebrate the remarkable work done to date driven by retail and food service companies and leading suppliers in the US, UK and Europe, and invite new industry leaders from Asia, Central and South America, and Africa to join us as we develop continued strategies for reaching the ambitious goals set out in Target 75. Companies will also have the opportunity to highlight their efforts and how they are advancing Target 75. The forum will include presentations on progress and remaining challenges, as well as workshops on new strategies and solutions to scale up efforts to make Target 75 a reality.

Registration is now open and we cannot wait to have you join us at the start of 2019!

The Target 75 Global Forum 2019 will take place over two days on February 6-7, 2019. The registration fee is $450 per person (includes all sessions, lunch and coffee breaks, and a cocktail reception on Wednesday evening, February 6th.)
