Seafood Traceability: How Tanzania Can Protect Its Coastal Fisheries and the People Who Depend on Them
February 28, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
About This Webinar
This webinar is designed to bring those interested in improving seafood traceability in Tanzania together to hear the government’s commitment to traceability and how the Seafood Alliance for Legality and Traceability (SALT) plans to support an upcoming project with a Tanzanian octopus fishery in the Kilwa District. During the webinar, SALT will highlight how the Comprehensive eCDT Principles and Pathway can help drive further success and guidance in creating an electronic seafood traceability program. Comprehensive traceability programs can facilitate the capture of electronic fisheries data, which can meet ecological objectives—such as strengthening the management of the fishing industry; social responsibility objectives—such as improving worker welfare or reducing the risk of human rights injustices; and economic objectives – such as making export compliance and overall operations more profitable.
