The Seafood Champion Awards annually recognize individuals and companies for outstanding leadership in promoting environmentally responsible seafood.
First presented in 2006, the Seafood Champion Awards annually recognize individuals and companies for outstanding leadership in promoting environmentally responsible seafood. SeaWeb established the award to honor those in the seafood industry whose past and/or present contributions demonstrate a commitment to innovation that leads to change.
Any individual, company or organization is welcome to submit nominations. Candidates can be nominated by others or self-nominated. Nominators may submit nominations for more than one candidate, but we strongly discourage individuals or groups submitting more than once for the same candidate, whether as an individual or as an organization.
Candidates can include individuals, companies or organizations whose accomplishments demonstrate outstanding commitment to advancing seafood sustainability in the fishing, aquaculture, seafood supply and distribution, retail, restaurant and foodservice sectors, as well as conservation, science, academia and the media. Nominations must specify whether they are nominating an individual or an organization.
