The seafood industry is expanding
But global seafood supply chains are fragmented, opaque and in desperate need of transparency.
Per capita seafood consumption has risen 90% over the past 50 years.
54% of global seafood exports originate in developing nations.
More than 700 kilograms of seafood are stolen every second as of 2014.
Up to 50% of fish are discarded or wasted in the supply chain post harvest.
89% of global fish stocks are currently overfished or fully exploited.
Lack of Standards
Less than 40% of developing nations are collecting adequate catch data.
