SALT ’Site Roundup

Welcome to our monthly newsletter! In addition to the quarterly SALT Shaker, we will keep you informed on any additions to the SALT website, including newly added resources in the Dive Deeper library, traceability projects on the Seascape map, blogs in the Story Hub, and upcoming events on the Get Involved Calendar.

General Updates

SALT finished the first half of 2021 strong; we have presented the Traceability Principles at FAO Blue Fishing Ports Workshop to representatives from 21 countries and participated in The High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy together with the Roadmap for Improving Seafood Ethics (RISE). It was an exciting moment to see our workplace collaboration on the global stage!

Traceability initiatives are emerging worldwide, faster than ever. So we decided to translate the new Traceability Principles into a few different languages to make them accessible for those in seafood producing countries. We are excited to announce that it is now available in Spanish, Bahasa Indonesian, Vietnamese, and French!

Last but not least, we are adding more exciting content to our website this summer and seeking a WordPress developer and graphic designer. Also, FishWise is seeking a Traceability Division Project Manager to support the team and FishWise business partners with their efforts in traceability and counter-illegal, unreported, and unregulated seafood. Visit FishWise's website for more information, and please share with your network!
