THE SALT SHAKER
What’s Shaking?
Our thoughts are with our community as we all face the challenges of COVID-19. We'd like to hear from you. Contribute to the conversation on how your work has been affected. Many thanks to everyone continuing to work towards traceable seafood despite these uncertain times, including the newest members of the SALT Advisory committee.
 

Three finalists have been selected for the SALT Small Grants. We look forward to announcing them in the near future.


SALT recently co-hosted a LinkedIn Q&A with the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) regarding their new standards. Check out the questions and their answers on the GDST Q&A page.
 
 
thank you
 
What’s new
on the Website?
 
SALT's website has officially reached over half of the countries in the world! This includes 13 new countries and roughly 500 new visitors to the website in the past month alone. We like to think part of the draw is our new blog series - Overcoming Barriers. Here are the first three of SALT’s five-part series on solutions for adopting electronic traceability. Afterward, enjoy the new case study by USAID Oceans with a foreword by SALT.

Where in the world?
A few months, nearly a lifetime ago when we could travel, SALT visited the Philippines as the USAID Oceans & Fisheries Partnership celebrated its close. Here’s the first dispatch from SALT’s interviews about their gender work, a potential guide for other governments and organizations. We also supported a FishWise trip to Peru to explore traceability efforts and solutions by our friends at Future of Fish and WWF Peru.

Events and conferences may be canceled (RIP Seafood Expo Global 2020), but the webinar scene has never been better. Check out the educational webinars from the Global Tuna Alliance, including one featuring SALT!

As our most recent “Overcoming Barriers” blog highlighted, interoperability is key for successful traceability. Here are some of our favorite case studies and stories focused on sharing data and interoperability.
