Oceana co-authors new vision for sustainable seafood certification published today in the scientific journal “Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment”.
According to the abstract, “In contrast to previous efforts, this program concentrates on both ecosystems and various human stakeholders, relies on an adaptive management approach (termed “continual improvement”) to enhance outcomes, and considers socioeconomic factors. The goal of this program is to support the restoration and maintenance of healthy ecosystem states and thriving human communities as well as the improvement of whole social–ecological systems.”
