The Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) is a leadership initiative established by global farmed salmon producers, focused on making significant progress on sustainability. This group is committed to fully realizing a shared goal of providing a highly sustainable source of healthy food to feed a growing global population, whilst minimizing our environmental footprint, and continuing to improve our social contribution.
Immediate challenges were seen to include matters related to biosecurity, sustainability of feed stocks, and environmental impacts of the industry. The group agreed that this is an area where co-operation and shared ambition could be a game changer for the whole industry. 15 members have now committed to substantial change, and work has begun to ensure greater transparency, and to address industry problems.
The GSI recognize that success will only come with the co-operation and support of stakeholders, and are currently in discussions to finalize their activities.
