Recognizing Leaders in Seafood Sustainability

  (UNITED STATES, 9/30/2014)

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 honour those in the seafood industry whose past and/or present contributions demonstrate a commitment to innovation that leads to change.

Seafood Champions range from companies that have made sustainability a business choice to inspired individuals who single handedly moved their organizations to sustainability; from powerful corporations to small scale fishers, and from high profile public figures to government officials and chefs.

The Seafood Champion Awards continue to evolve to ensure that individuals or organizations who receive the Award represent the full diversity of large and small industry, academia, media, and non-profit stakeholders in the sustainable seafood movement.

The finalists for theSeafood Champion Awards were announced at the fifth edition of Seafood Expo Asia in Hong Kong.

Following specific criteria, judges of this acclaimed award selected sixteen finalists. For the first time, this year's Awards include four categories: Leadership, Innovation, Vision and Advocacy.

This years’ nominations were exceptional, both for the range of activities being undertaken to promote sustainable seafood, and for the dedication these ocean leaders are demonstrating.

SeaWeb received over 100 nominations and four finalists were selected in each category following an extensive review of submissions by the panel of distinguished judges.

“Each one of these Champion nominees has a unique and important story to tell of how they came to embrace sustainability as an integral component of their strategy and business model,” says Dawn M. Martin, President of SeaWeb.
