The Seafood Alliance for Legality and Traceability (SALT) is a global community of governments, the seafood industry, and non-governmental organizations working together to share ideas and collaborate on solutions for legal and sustainable seafood, with a particular focus on traceability–the ability to track the movement of seafood through supply chains.
SALT is a public-private partnership between USAID and the Walton Family, Packard, and Moore Foundations, and implemented by FishWise, a sustainable seafood consultancy.
Hundreds of efforts around seafood traceability exist. But they are not all aware of each other, nor able to learn from one another. SALT’s founding partners saw a need to bring people and ideas together since progress in this field had been thwarted by the disconnected endeavors. SALT’s goal is to gather these organizations into a cohesive community, working together to make seafood traceable.
Collaboration is challenging. So SALT facilitates learning events for people to connect in person, and maintains this traceability website to encourage online connections. SALT believes that sharing traceability knowledge virtually and in-person will spark creative solutions.
The SALT learning hub offers free, accessible online tools to further this aim and kindle collaboration across industry, non-governmental organizations, and governments. It includes:
A repository of curated, easily accessible resources about traceability
An interactive map displaying current traceability work happening globally
A platform to circulate stories from SALT and the greater community about traceability discoveries to promote best practices and lessons learned
The process of curating worthwhile information in one place instigates meaningful dialogue around the problem and empowers people to meet a traceability need.
