Anette will talk about communicating sustainable aquaculture, using examples from their work in Norway (and in their biggest salmon markets) to illustrate how they work to change misconceptions and negative coverage of salmon farming.

Seafood 2040, through the Seafood Industry Leadership Group and the Aquaculture Leadership Group, is an all-sector roadmap with an ambition for a sustainable and thriving seafood industry.
