Building on existing regional roundtables focused primarily on feed manufacturers, we use a whole value chain approach to engage all users of marine ingredients and other stakeholders interested in working collaboratively to increase the availability of sustainable marine ingredients. These include livestock and pet feeds, nutraceuticals, certifications, trade associations, fishmeal, feed and aquaculture producers, scientists, and NGOs.
We foster and support precompetitive efforts by members to:
Our members are representatives of the value chain with a major interest in improving the sustainability of marine ingredients and increasing availability of sustainable marine ingredients, as well as a commitment to actively support the Roundtable. They are invited by the Secretariat and their fees provide funds for the roundtable projects.
Our members are: The Federation of European Aquaculture Producers (FEAP), Global Seafood Alliance (GSA), Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Nissui, Mars, Incorporated , BioMar, Cargill, Skretting, OLVEA, Nestle, MarinTrust, Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) and IFFO The Marine Ingredients Organisation.
Our work is divided into a series of project streams, chosen and run by the members. The current active stream are focusing on West African Fisheries, South and Southeast Asia Marine Ingredients, and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
The Global Roundtable on Marine Ingredients is playing a key role to address some of the main challenges that we face as industry. For Skretting this is an opportunity to share, learn and collaborate with other stakeholders to find solutions that allow us to improve the sustainability and availability of marine ingredients to feed a growing population with safe and nutritious seafood proteins.
