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.

AGENDA UPDATES (current agenda available below)
The agenda is shaping up to be one of our best yet. It will include discussion about how Target 75 contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and we'll hear from some of SFP's largest multinational partners on how Target 75 is helping them to advance sustainable seafood commitments globally. Panels are being organized on topics such as efforts to scale up improvement projects through national-level FIPs and RFMO engagement, what development agencies are doing to support sustainable fisheries and aquaculture globally, new advances in sustainable aquaculture policy and feed, and new tools and resources for addressing social and labor issues in the seafood supply chain. Of course, we'll also have an update from SFP CEO Jim Cannon on the status of Target 75, as well as presentations from industry leaders participating in the Supply Chain Roundtables, to get an update on how we're progressing together toward Target 75.

Registration is still available and we hope you join us in Miami to kick off 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.)
