First-of-Its-Kind Seafood Champion Finalist Named with FisheryProgress.org Selection

  (UNITED STATES, 4/4/2018)

For the first time since SeaWeb launched its Seafood Champions Awards in 2006, a website has been selected as a finalist. SeaWeb announced this month the selection of FisheryProgress.org as a finalist in the Innovation category. The other Innovation category finalists include Bubba Cook of WWF-New Zealand, Gerald Knecht of North Atlantic, Skretting, and Pelagic Data Systems.

FisheryProgress.org is a project of FishChoice developed in collaboration with the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions. SeaWeb cited the website as “a one-stop shop for reliable, verified information about Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) progress” and the fact that it is “taking highly complex elements of a fishery improvement project and presenting them in an easy to follow dashboard … to build industry comfort in sourcing from, and participating in, these critical projects.”

FisheryProgress.org gives you a range of information about global FIPs from a quick snapshot of progress and opportunities to get involved to detailed evidence for improvements.

The Seafood Champion Awards will be announced at SeaWeb’s Seafood Summit in June. If selected, FisheryProgress.org would be the first website recognized in any Seafood Champion category.

Responding to the finalist selection, FishChoice released the following statement from its founder and CEO, Richard Boot: “We’re amazed at how the seafood community has responded to FisheryProgress.org".

"The site now has more than 90 FIP profiles from 50 countries, more than 1,000 users, and industry leaders as diverse as Thai Union and Hyatt using FisheryProgress.org to inform sourcing decisions. Selection as a Seafood Champion Award finalist is an incredible honor, and we wish our fellow finalists luck.”
