Blue Stand Up : Overfishing - May
Time & Location
About the Event
Blue Stand Ups are our invitation only events where thought leaders and industry peers come together to discuss key sustainability topics. A key feature of these events are their action-based nature, where participants deliver on follow up outcomes that will benefit the sustainability of the blue economy.
The Netflix document “Seaspiracy” about the impact of commercial fishing has attracted celebrity endorsements and plaudits from fans with its damning picture of the industry’s harm to ocean life. But NGOs, sustainability labels and experts quoted in Seaspiracy have accused the filmmakers of making “misleading claims”, using out-of-context interviews and erroneous statistics.
During this call, we will consider how customer facing professionals can influence the debate on overfishing, what needs to be done and why it is important for the broad ocean economy.
