When it comes to supply chains, you would think that fish would be easy. You figure when server delivers the platter of tilapia to your table, the entree was caught and cleaned, then frozen and shipped, and finally cooked and served.
Well, double those steps. National Geographic recently posted the six stages required for an effective seafood supply chain. Their theory – from stage 1: compiling data to stage 6: the sale of product – a collective effort is required to have sustainable fisheries and oceans.
From fisher to consumer, all parties along the way have the corporate responsibility to use sustainable practices so that each stage is completed with environmental consideration.
One business competition “Fish 2.0” invites entrepreneurs to come up with innovative and sustainable technology/solutions to continually improve our oceans. More information can be found here www.fish20.org.
