This year's UN climate change conference saw the fisheries, aquaculture and seafood industries being discussed as one of the solutions to slow global warming, a shift from prior years, according to a top executive from C-suite partnership group SeaBOS.

Though the COP 27 summit (officially named the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) received criticism for an unsuccessful pledge to phase out all fossil fuels, it was a step in the right direction for the seafood sector, which was discussed across more pavilions than in years past, according to Wenche Gronbrekk, SeaBOS director of strategy, partnerships and external relations, who attended the conference.
