'The sustainable and responsible sourcing of seafood is not an option anymore, it is a necessity if the industry wants to endure for generations to come. Collaboration is required to ensure the correct and most effective steps are being taken among all stakeholders.'
'Look at how effective the Norwegian Seafood Export Council has been at generating demand for farmed salmon around the world in places like China, Russia and even Japan. In the US we still eat more peanut butter per capita than salmon and tuna combined.'
'The seafood industry isn't for the faint of heart or the inexperienced. To push the industry ahead we need committed, creative leaders with the flexibility to work with consumers, government and financial lenders.'
'The seafood industry may not seem as glamorous as some industries, but there are great opportunities in this sector which is dynamic, has a great product and story to sell, and is vitally important to the economy.'
