The theme of this year’s event is "8 years to save our ocean? The power of business as a lever for change". Speakers and panellists will address the urgent and remarkable change that is needed to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals which aim to end overfishing, restore fish stocks, protect ecosystems, and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing by 2030. 

The clock is ticking to meet this goal, with business widely acknowledged as having a pivotal role to play securing the future of our oceans.  

The MSC is bringing together a range of high profile speakers from across the fishing, retail and sustainability sectors to give their perspectives, debating how the international seafood community can deliver the step change in sustainable fisheries management that is needed, and the power of the markets to accelerate this change.
