Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Region Highlights

SALT is hosting a 3-hour workshop, Comprehensive Traceability to Combat Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing in Latin America and the Caribbean, on November 9th. This workshop aims to provide a stage for sharing LAC successes and challenges and identify regional opportunities and needs for traceability and counter-IUU fishing efforts for government stakeholders, NGOs, and industry representatives who work closely with governments. Simultaneous interpretations will be provided in English and Spanish. Please reach out to us at if you are interested in participating in this workshop!

SALT 's latest LAC webinar, Principios de trazabilidad de marisco: Aumentar cadenas de suministro sostenibles y transparentes en América Latina, was a huge success with more than 70 participants. It built off the momentum from presenting at the Environmental Defense Fund and Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies’ webinar series, Dialogos de tecnología para pesquerías en América Latina, back in July. In case you missed it, here is the recording!

Last but not least, SALT is seeking a Spanish-speaking Project Manager. If you are passionate about working with a global community to support seafood traceability efforts— specifically in the LAC region—please apply
