The ASMI Technical Program will conduct a briefing and training session on the Alaska Seafood Sustainability Platform on Monday January 26th, from 9:30am until 11:30 am, at the Westmark Baranof Juneau, Gastineau Suite.
As you know, the seafood sustainability issue is an important factor in promoting Alaska seafood. ASMI has prepared a number of materials for use in explaining the sustainability of Alaska seafood and will conduct this session in order to provide answers and information on key questions and issues that arise. Topics that will be covered include Alaska management approach, United Nations Food and Agricultural (FAO) standard, 3rd party NGO certification schemes, the Top 10 things important in seafood sustainability, and ecolabels. This session is intended to provide Alaska seafood suppliers with a deeper understanding of the sustainability issue, and provide the resources that will facilitate the understanding that Alaska Seafood sustainability can stand on its own, without the need for outside certifications.
In order for us to prepare materials for attendees, kindly RSVP by Wednesday, January 21 to:
We look forward to seeing you on January 26, 2009. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
