Traceability to be key focus of Seafood Summit in New Orleans

Traceability is getting top billing at the Seafood Summit in New Orleans from February 9 to 12, 2015. Several panel discussions at the conference are focused on traceability, labeling, responsible sourcing, supply chain auditing, and more. ThisFish’s pilot project to trace Indonesian tuna will also be presented by our local partner MDPIndonesia, which has also been nominated for a champion award for their vision. FishWise, a nonprofit organization, will be holding a half-day pre-conference workshop on the minimum requirements and best practices in seafood traceability.
